Sign Up for Fall Virtual Card Making Classes!

Image
I'm SOOO excited about the next session of Virtual Cardmaking Classes! What is a Virtual Class? And why would YOU want to take it? What do you get out of it? I started doing the Virtual Class for several reasons. Maybe one of these reasons applies you? The date and time of an actual workshop does not always work with everyone's schedule. Especially in the fall with school activities going on! I work full time - so can only do classes in the evening. Going to class while your kids are in school is easier or you don't like driving at night.I live in Murfreesboro, TN - you live several hours (or days) away! You like to be crafty at 2am.... I don't (I used to...my body just doesn't allow it anymore!) You've never created cards. If you are only a scrapbooker, creating cards can be intimidating! I KNOW!

Bring Back My Pack - More Magical

Image
Today we have a special blog hop for you!  We are sharing our creations using the Magical Paper Pack that Close To My Heart has brought back in their BRING BACK MY PACK campaign.  The Magical Paper Pack has become even MORE MAGICAL with some updated colors that will be introduced in our upcoming Holiday Expressions (debuting September 1 to customers!). If you came from Michelle Stewart's Blog you are on the right track!  The hop is a big circle so when you get back to me you will know you completed the hop. This is a small hop so you will get through it in a breeze!

I created all the layouts that were in the instruction guide that you can download when you order the Magical Bundle. I had so much fun (they were quick and easy to put together) I wanted to keep going!  Right now I have this THING with our new Stitched Thin Cuts.  I LOVE them!  I wanted to use them on a page with Magical so I pulled out my Stitched Circle Thin Cuts and cut a bunch of circles from pieces of Magical pa…

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month's stamp isFor the Love of Crafting. This fun stamp set has 9 images!! If you came from Melissa Robinson's Blog you are on the right track! The hop is one big circle so when you get back to me you will know you have completed the hop! If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire list of participants HERE.

I know that many of my customers have been waiting for this month to get here because of this stamp set!  There are so many crafty images and sayings in this set.  When we attend Close To My Heart's convention, it is tradition to get your convention roomies a little something. I decided to use this stamp set to make a fun gift for my convention roomies this year.  

I started with a bunch of 1 3/4" stitched hearts thin cuts in lots of bright colors and added them to a white background.  Next I stamped several of the images and cut them out.  I used my ShinHan Touch Twin markers to color the letters. …
