December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Thoughtful Flowers

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Thoughtful Flowers. This set of 14 stamps, which coordinates with the Flower Market cricut cartridge. If you have come here from Marie Flayer's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

This stamp is great for Sympathy cards.   I had a hard time choosing which flowers to color first so I stamped them ALL out and started with these small flowers.   I used my ShinHan Touch Twin markers to color and then I cut them out and layered the small grouping of flowers on top of the small flowers on the stem. I combined Oh Deer! paper and Whimsy paper for this card - a very nice combination.

Remember! You can get this stamp for just $5 during the month of December when you purchase $50 in Close To My Heart Products!

Now it is time to hop on over to Kirsten Desorcy's Blog and see what she has created!

It's the Little Things - December Special!

Adorable mini albums for celebrating the little things you love! So often it’s the little things that matter most—and what better way to celebrate the little things in life than with adorable mini albums? Whether looking for a meaningful gift idea or a treasured keepsake, these mini albums are a fast and easy option, and this month you save 30%-off the retail price of the products you need!

The bundles are specifically designed to give you everything you need to preserve your memories in a flash. Whether you are just getting started with papercrafting or you are a seasoned scrapbooker, these mini album bundles can help you create quick and easy albums. These albums make great gift items in part because of their smaller sizes, and also because of their low price!

There are three different options:

If you are brand new to scrapbooking, the Blue Jean mini-album bundle and Blush mini-album bundle are great options! The smaller size of the album, cards, and overlays make this system extremely user friendly. Simply trim your photos to size, insert them into the Memory Protectors™, and then fill in additional spots with cards and overlays. These albums are a perfect sized and are designed for anyone who wants to create a handcrafted album in a flash!

The Everyday Life™ album bundles (shown below) are another great option for new and seasoned scrapbookers alike. The printed pages in this album allow for quickly created projects, but also give the crafter more space for creativity. You can customize the pages by adding things like mementos, photos, embellishments, and journaling. The larger size of this album provides space not only for more photos, but also for standard sized 4" x 6" photos. Note: There are different Memory Protectors available to them with either one 8" x 6" pocket, two 4" x 6" pockets, or four 4" x 3" pockets. All of these bundles are designed to help everyone from novice to expert create beautifully designed, fast & easy scrapbooks to document everything from everyday antics to vacations. 

HINT:  To make printing these custom photo sizes even more convenient for you, try out Persnickety Prints. They have tools that make it easy to print 2" x 2" and 4" x 4" sizes, as well as more traditional sizes.

Flower Market Blog Hop

Welcome to our Flower Market Blog Hop! Today we are showcasing artwork created with Close to My Heart's newest Cricut cartridge - Flower Market!  If you came from Melinda Everitt's Blog you are on the right track!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

I wanted to document my daughter's first home purchase so I chose to use Key #19.

I love the pansies!  I used our new color Pansy (of course) and Thistle to create the layered flower. The center is Lemon.  I decided to use the flower container as my journaling anchor and this time I used alternate colored layers for the Pansies.  My journaling card is from the set of Picture My Life Tabbed Journaling Cards.

I wanted the door of the house to be New England Ivy.  I know I could have traced and hand cut the door but I thought this would be good practice to use the slice and contour features in Explore to get it to cut just a solid door.

I used some of the background stamps that are included with the Flower Market Cricut Colllection to stamp on the flowers.  Here is a closer look -

Here is an AWESOME CYBER MONDAY DEAL for you!  You can get the Flower Market Cricut Collection (or any other exclusive Close to My Heart Cricut Collection) for 30% off with a $30 purchase!!!   Get this special deal ONLY on Monday, November 28th!!
