Love is in the air…

chant closseupHave you received your copy of the fantastic Seasonal Expressions I catalog yet?

It’s full of darling stamp sets and amazing paper – because that’s what we love – and that’s what Close To My Heart does so well. The BEST in the business.

The art work is inspiring and the new products are so cool!!

Today my featured card is highlighting the beautiful new paper pack Chantilly  7205B. I love that it’s not the traditional flowers and green leaves design. It’s soft and pretty and perfect for so many occasions. I’ve added Gold Puffies Z3203 and Sequins Z2012 and bitty sparkles!

The stamp set is called Springtime Wishes C1641 and the best part is that is has a matching thins cuts. Thats RIGHT matching thin cuts!!! AKA Die Cuts.

Be sure to check out the Seasonal Expressions HERE and let me know what you think!

Love is definitely in the air.

Love me some Rudolph!

reindeerI love creating a cute little gift for friends with the products I already have on hand! You too?

If you look close you can see that this reindeer is an upside down Christmas stocking! How adorable is that??!! Thanks Pinterest! and Thanks to my friend Bren Y. who made the first reindeer and then let me copy!

I used my Art Philosphy cricut cartridge to cut the reindeer (stocking) shape. The antlers are from the new Artistry cricut cartridge – it’s a snowflake! The little ear is from Art Philosphy ( shape 11 ) and a circle punch for the eyes and red glitter nose! The black harness is from the same shape key as the stocking. It’s the “cuff” of the stocking.

I had googly eyes from Walmart – such a dealio – and jingle bells from the dollar store. Red bakers twine – we all have that in our stash! right!?- and the best part is I used the little mini stapler to hold it all together! Added a candy cane and viola!

I hope you’re having fun making cards, baking cookies, and creating fun holiday memories! Be sure check out the amazing papers and stamp sets from the Holiday Expressions before the month is over! Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be gone!

My personal favorite item are the PML White Pines Scrapbooking Program cards. Z3176  Picture My Life or you can call it “quick and easy” pocket scrapbooking OR adorable cards OR you can use the cards on a traditional scrapbooking project OR a home decor item! You can see lots of different ideas with the hashtag PML or PictureMy Life. Don’t delay! Get yourself a Christmas gift that will make you smile for years to come.

I’d love to hear from you! Let me know what you’re creating this holiday season! I hope it’s delightful!

Another Fall Fav…

margipaintingThis beautiful piece of art started off as a STAMP! Amazing, I know! It is the September Stamp Of The Month from Close To My Heart called Paper Garden S1509.

You can’t purchase it anymore (sad) however I’m sure you could find one. Maybe. That’s one of the cool things about Close To My Heart. You can purchase exclusive stamp sets for only $5 with a qualifying order. I love my Stamp of the Months. I wish everyone would play along!

My sweet stamping and paper crafting friend Margi G. made this for me as a gift. I will treasure it always. It’s so detailed and colorful. She has a talent for all things artistic. Her blog is called ArtsyMargi. You should check it out! She stamped the image lightly in Whisper ink. Then she went back in and added the Watercolors. It is breath taking!

I am a luck gal to be surrounded by friends who fill my life with art. If you would like more information on becoming a consultant I’d love to share my journey! Send me an email! Let’s talk!!

Fall is my Fav…

fallI love fall. I love the colors and the end of the super HOT sunshine of Arizona! I love to make cards that celebrate the subtle changes before the crazy holiday season makes me feel stressed out! (in a good way!)

I hope you enjoy my creation. I stamp lifted the basic design from the Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions catalog.  It’s on page 4 along with the darling “Hostess Only” stamp set “Blessings of Autumn” C1634.

If you would love this stamp set it’s easy to host an online gathering! Contact me for more information. You can get this set (and others!) for only $8.

Happy November. And Happy Grateful Hearts.

You know you want one…..

complwhiteI love Halloween. Not only is it my birthday – BUT – it’s awesome when you get lots of sugar and bad things to eat for free!! JK!! (“just kidding” if you don’t know all the codes!)

So in honor of this amazing Holiday I created a fun little banner! It uses All Close To My Heart products. Including the Art Philosophy and Artiste Cricut cartridges.

I will make you one ready to enjoy today OR I’ll send you the pattern and instructions! All you need to do is place an order on my website! That’s right! It’s Easy Peasy. (you can also email me with an order, send a check and it would be the same. You’ll get a banner or I’ll email you the pdf or both!)

Here are all the deets (details) $50 will get you the banner pre-made and ready to go! (plus the emailed pdf for future use) $25 will get you the emailed pdf instructions.

It measures approximately 14″ (the faces) plus the ribbon on each side. The total length is approximately 26″-28″. The faces measure 5.5″ top to bottom. I hope you’ll celebrate my fun birthday month and hang these three scary faces in a place of honor!

Happy Boo To You!

Clean and Simple CAS(E) this sketch!

pink

I love playing along with Card Challenge sites! It forces me to get out of my “project” mode of thinking.  As a consultant I’m always creating for swaps and samples that I can share and teach. When I play along with a card challenge it makes me jump up and create a one of a kind card that I can share! Fast, fun, and easy!

TodayI am playing along with CAS(E) this sketch #136. I created an A-4 size card using Paper Fundamentals Whimsy collection from Close To My Heart. I love how fun the two tone paper is! One side is shiny and one side is matte. With the same design. Super easy to use! I chose the matte side so the pattern really pops! The stamps are also Close To My Heart. D1647 Documenting Moments and C1633 For Family  and D1660 Ink Blot (both will be available on Sep. 1st)!

The card base is Slate card stock which I adhered to a white card base. Added some silver sequins and it’s ready to send to a friend! I hope you like it!

It’s Here! Zoe!
