Gifting Cards - Happy Times Card Box

If you've been under a rock this month then you came out just in time!  There is just a little over a week left to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month with Close To My Heart's Happy Times paper and stamp! One of the things I created with this beautiful pack of paper was a card workshop designed by fellow CTMH Consultant Michelle Snyder.   These cards are so pretty I thought they would make a great gift!  

I used  the My Creations Journaling Cards Box (Z1953) with my left over Happy Times paper to create a pretty box to hold the cards!  This sweet little box is so easy to cover.  I cut the pieces to fit the sections of the box and attached with Bonding Memories Glue.  I accented the box with a zip strip, gold shimmer trim and some flowers from the Happy Times Stamp set.  This little box will hold up to 8 cards and envelopes and makes a perfect gift!

Get your pack of Happy Times Paper for FREE when you purchase $60 in Close To My Heart Products.  Or, you can purchase the Happy Times paper for $14.95.   You can also purchase the Happy Times stamp set for $17.95.  

But hurry, this special is good until May 31 (or whiles supplies last).  
After May 31, Happy Times will be gone forever!

Georgie Paper - Not Just for Babies!

At first glance, when you see the Georgie paper by Close To My Heart, you probably think 'babies'. Actually this paper can be used for many different themes!  Here, you will see how I used the paper to feature pictures of my daughter's sorority sisters.  I paired the paper with the colors of Glacier and Peacock.

I used several different stamp sets with this layout.  My title is stamped with the Alphabet stamp - Typography (E1032).  I also used So Many Smiles (C1619).  The different circles can be stamped in so many different ways making this a very popular set.  I used Glacier, Peacock and Champagne inks to stamp the circles.  The diagonal stripe border and "awesome" bubble is from the set - Crazy Good (D1661).   I think this layout shows how you can incorporate several different themed stamp sets that work well together.   Other accents used - Gold Foil Tape (Z3129) and Blue Dots Enamel and Glitter Duos (Z3122).

Typography - E1032

So Many Smiles - C1619

Shakin' it up with Calypso!

Here is a fun shaker card I created using leftover paper and compliments from my Workshop Your Way Calypso kit.  

I cut the ocean frame from the Artooking Cricut cartridge for my beachy theme.  I cut some of the words from one of the zip strips to use along with the leftover compliments for my shakers, Look closely and you will see an upside down "sun" word.  I cut the word "hello" from the Artistry cricut cartridge.

This was a great way to use up my leftover compliments.
