Sneak Peek - A Confetti Wishes Birthday

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the new Confetti Wishes paper from Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations book along with a few other new products that will be released in August.   This paper is so much fun!!

My great uncle turns 90 next week and his family is throwing a big party!  When I say '90' don't you dare think wheelchairs, nursing homes and canes!   He still lives at home, travels... ALOT and even has a cabin that he and his sons have been rebuilding up in Canada.  He is a World War II vet and always has lots of stories to share.  When people talk about favorite uncles, my Great Uncle Ed always come to mind.  I wish I could join in the party this weekend but I had other obligations already on my calendar.  So, I created this fun card to send him Birthday Wishes.


The printed paper is from the new Confetti Wishes paper.  Using the Artbooking cartridge, I cut the cupcake base from our new Canary Cardstock and the layer is cut from the new glitter paper from the new Purple Glitter Paper collection.  Nearly everything on this card is new product coming August 1with the exception of the Outdoor Denim Cardstock and the cupcake from Artbooking!

Some Like It Hot with H2H

This week's challenge over at Heart 2 Heart is 'Some Like It Hot'.  I thought about creating a summer time card but as I was going through my stamps, I came across this cute little set that I had never used before.  I've been creating lots of cards lately with retired papers for an upcoming Girl's Night Out Event in August.   I just kept coming back this to stamp so I decided to create a card with it for my event.



The stamp set is called Cup of Cheer (B1404).  The B&T paper I used was from the Elementals paper pack from a few years ago.  I paired it Indian Corn Blue and Cocoa.   I used retired ribbon (Cocoa Grosgrain) and a sorbet brad from my stash.

Come on over and join us at H2H this week!

Just 2 Weeks Left!

There are only two weeks left before we say goodbye to many products in our 2014 Spring Summer Idea!  If you have some items on your wish list from this book, you better get them before they are gone forever!  A few things like the Balloon Ride Scrapbooking kit, and the Ivy Lane Cardmaking kit were so popular, they have already sold out!

While we are excitedly anticipating the release of the new Annual Inspirations on August 1, I don't want you to miss out on some great deals like our Organizers.  I've got several of each of these and although my scraproom is a big mess - at least it's an ORGANIZED big mess!  The prices on all of our organizers will be going up $2-$3 in August so get them NOW before the price increase!
