Love This - Magical

Today I'm sharing a layout that my talented friend Briana Bostick created with the Magical papers. Back in April at our annual Spa Girls reunion in Virginia we got to create with new products from the Seasonal Expressions 2 book.  It is so much fun to collaborate and share our ideas.   Briana shows many fun aspects of using the Magical papers and compliments.

Let's see if we can get a closer look:

This layout is Pattern #4 from Make It From the Heart Vol. 2 book.  Briana used a great mix of compliments throughout her layout.   I love how she added Blue and Yellow Magical sequins to "Let's Ride".  Her title on this page is actually one of the pocket cards that is included with the paper pack. She used another pocket card as a journaling space on the left page. (see yellow card with lines.) She also used our new White Twine for an added special touch.   Isn't this layout great??   Thank you Briana for letting me share this on my blog today!

Remember!  The Magical Papers and Compliments will only be available until August 31!  Get them today before summer is over!

Special Group for my Customers and Friends

Did you know that I have a special VIP Facebook group for all my papercrafting friends and customers?  Two years ago, I realized that my customers were missing important announcements, specials and artwork because they were not seeing my daily posts in their feed.  I knew then that a Group was the way to 'get the word' out.

By joining and becoming a member of my special StampinHeaven Facebook Group you won’t miss those special announcements, artwork, tips & techniques, videos and of course - giveaways too! I will still be posting on my StampinHeaven Business Page, but my goal with the StampinHeaven Facebook Group page is to be more interactive.... I want to get to know you and what you like more.   I want YOU to get to know me!  I want to inspire you, amuse you and bring out that crafty side that everyone has.  YES EVERYONE has one, they just may not know it.  I want to build a community of papercrafters that feel free to share their own artwork, ideas and suggestions!  Of course, since I am a Close To My Heart consultant most everything will be geared towards those products and artwork.  But I do like to share a good find when I find one!

My group page will be the first place to come to find out about my classes and events.  I like to set up events within my group.  When this happens, you will be among the first to be invited.  But don't worry, if you can't attend, then just select "NOT GOING" and you won't be bothered by more posts that happens within that event.

Groups are great too because I can post files such as technique files, retiring lists, cutting guides and more!   I've also learned (after two years) that I should have ALBUMS specific to our Annual Inspirations, Seasonal Expressions, and Holiday Expressions.  This should help you find artwork more easily rather than scrolling through post after post.  (Sorry it took me so long to do that!)

I'd LOVE to get my group membership up to 100 members!  
When that my group becomes 100 members strong, I will have a special giveaway!  
So what are you waiting for?   
Be sure to invite your friends!

This is a CLOSED group and you must ask to join.  Anyone is able to find the group but they can not see posts from this group unless they are a member.

(As much as I would love to have other CTMH Consultants as part of the group, my Stampinheaven Facebook Group is specifically for my customers and their friends. Thanks for understanding.)

Big Magical Smiles

I love this layout we created at our Making Connections Events back in March.  I've been waiting to share this until summer time.  These papers are perfect for your amusement park visits whether they are to Disney or other parks!  The fun coordinating compliments include die-cut cameras, arrows, tags and even a castle.  Some of these die-cuts have a silver foil.  The compliments also include big title stickers.   I used "Big Smiles" for my title and added Silver Foil Tape to the layout because it looks great with the foil die-cuts.

The Magical Papers and Compliments will be available through August 31 but I think these will be so popular I would not wait to get them.   Shop for these and other products now at

Carnival Fun

This month Close To My Heart will be featuring the Magical Paper.  You may already be seeing it popping up all over instagram, facebook and blogs.   The paper pack is so much fun and can be used in a variety of ways.   Last week I shared a mini book I created with a piece of paper from Magical.
Today, I want to share some cards.   I created the three layouts from the Magical Workshop Your Way kit and had plenty of paper left over to create the cards that were also included in the instructions.  The cards shown in the guide use the Fairytale Birthday stamp and look like this:

But I decided I wanted to use a different stamp set for my cards.  So I cut the papers exactly the same but changed up my stamp and used the Carnival Fun stamp and thin cuts! I also used the little M size stamp - Bitty Birthday (M1144).   I think they turned out quite cute!!

The Magical Paper will be available through the end of August 31 but I wouldn't wait to purchase it!

July Stamp of the Month - From the Notebook

Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring From the Notebook. This is a fun set of 24 stamps that will help you add journaling and important facts and dates to your scrapbooking pages and more! If you have come here from Kirsten Jade'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.

It is tradition to bring a roomie gift for your roommates when attending convention.  I had created a mini book with this stamp for my upcoming July Technique Tuesday class and thought it was so cute that I should create one for my roomies.   Because convention was taking place at the most magical place on earth - Disney World, I used Close To My Heart's Magical paper and compliments! This little mini book is created with ONE SHEET of B&T paper!

I cut the "CTMH" with my Artiste Cricut Cartridge (this one is retiring at the end of July!).  I used my Explore to write "Convention 2016" on the name tag. (love this feature!!)  Here are the inside pages of this little mini book.

I love the lined stamp for note pages.  I created the first page to write down the exciting announcements from our 1st General Session.  I added two more pages for 'notes'.  One for Ideas (see the light bulbs?) and the other to write down the 'must haves'.... see the shopping cart stamp?  I know - this little page will NOT be enough for all our must haves... I guess it will have to be the FIRST MUST HAVES.... haha.   I added photo mats to the other three pages using Cranberry and Sapphire cardstock for mats.   Behind the Cranberry mat, I left an opening to tuck the tag. 

To see my Technique Tuesday mini book (created with a sheet of Fundamental cardstock) go to my Upcoming Events page.  

Remember!  You can only get the July Stamp of the Month during the month of July!  
After that it will be gone for good!  Get it for just $5 with a $50 purchase!

Now it is time to to hop over to Michelle Loncar's blog and see what she has created!
