Cardmaking Workshop Your Way Blog Hop


Welcome to our Special Blog Hop featuring Close To My Heart's Cardmaking Workshop Your Way Kits!
Each Workshop Your Way ™ cardmaking kit helps you create 10 cards and includes an exclusive B-sized stamp set with two different sentiments. You get instructions for creating two different cards, but because the card patterns are identical, you can mix and match both the paper and the sentiments however you’d like! 

Did you know that there are FOUR Cardmaking Workshop Your Way kits in our Seasonal Expressions?
Happy Congratulations Cardmaking Kit (G1125) (SOLD OUT!)
Workshops Your Way® Here for You Cardmaking Kit (G1124)
Workshops Your Way® Hello Baby Cardmaking Kit (G1123)
Workshops Your Way® Mother's Day Cardmaking Kit (G1122) (SOLD OUT!)

Today, we are taking these kits and using them in ways other than as shown in the instruction guide!  This hop will be a lot of fun.  If you came from Brenda Lapp's Blog, you are on the right track! At the end of my post you will find the link to next blog to hop to! If you get lost along the way you can find the complete list of hopper HERE.

I have to admit, I purchased the Hello Baby Cardmaking Kit just because I liked the stampset!  It was great timing too because it seems like I know several people having babies soon!

I decided to take this stamp and use it with the Whimsy Fundamental papers.  I created two cards - one for a boy and one for a girl!



Here is a closer look at each card:


I used the Glacier papers for my 'boy' card.  I stamped the hearts and the cloud with Glacier ink and clustered them with the ribbon from the Whimsy Ribbon Pack.



For the 'girl' card I used a the Blossom colors.  I stamped the flag banner accross the bottom for a border and I used the "CONGRATS" as a background on the Blossom Cardstock.  I heat embossed to hearts with our White embossing powder and clustered them around the circle sentiment.  The pink twin is from the Adventure Ribbon pack.

Remember!  These Cardmaking Kits will retire April 30th and are Whiles Supplies Last! Get your favorites before they are gone!

Get Better Soon!

I needed to create a quick card to get in the mail to my Grandma.  So, what is the easiest and quickest way to create a card?  Use Picture My Life Pocket cards of course!


I used a pocket card from the Some Kind of Wonderful paper pack.  I stamped "Get Better Soon" from the Get Better (B1543) stamp set.  I stamped the mug on a piece of B&T, cut it out and popped it up!  I've had this stamp for a while and this is the first time I've used it!  

Now THAT is what I call FAST AND EASY!  I'll drop it in the mail tomorrow!

April Stamp of the Month - Flock Together


Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Flock Together. This set has 11 stamps. If you have come here from Michelle Rowley'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.


I usually create cards with the stamp of the month but this month I felt like this stamp was geared more towards memory keeping so I created a one page layout.




































These pictures are of my daughters.  We had spent the day at 12 South, an up and coming area in Nashville with cool restaurants and boutiques.  BTW Reece Witherspoon has a boutique there.   I love it that my two girls share such a close relationship.  They are five years apart but since they have grown up they have become very close - even living together the last several years.  

For this layout, I pulled out my Adventure Fundamentals Paper pack and decided to use papers in Pacifica and Raspberry colors.  Here is a list of all the products I used for this page:

Adventure Fundamental Paper Pack - Z3253
White Daisy Cardstock - 1385
Pacifica Cardstock - X5759
Raspberry Cardstock - X5788
Thin Cut Hearts (Z3260)
Pacifica Ink - Z2892
Raspberry Ink - Z2812
Black & White Dots - Z3314
  

Remember! This stamp is available ONLY during the month of April!
Get it for $5 with a $50 purchase


This blog hop will be fun....  
Come on and follow me to the next blog which is Jen Rubio's blog

and don't worry - if you feel the need to sing the Partridge Family Theme song while hopping go right ahead - I sang it the entire time I was creating this page.  Just something about this stamp......
