You Are Here Blog Hop

Welcome to our You Are Here Blog Hop! Today we are showcasing artwork created with Close to My Heart's newest Cricut Collection -You Are Here! If you came from Miss Carrie's Creations Blog you are on the right track! 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.

The You Are Here Cricut Collection comes with 3 exclusive stamp sets and a pack of Adventure Combo Cardstock!  You can get either the digital package (does not include physical cartridge & handbook) for $79.00 or your can purchase the collection with the physical Cartridge for $99.00 (since Provo Craft is retiring the physical cartridges, these are While Supplies Last)

We had a real God story to tell about our move this year and I knew that I needed to document it.  I have not had the time to sit down and do this.  When we decided to do this blog hop I knew it was a great opportunity to get it done because I had seen a "For Sale" sign image and a mailbox image.  I was tickled to see moving boxes as images too!!   The story is a long one, so I used two 3x4 flip flaps on the outside of the page protector to get the whole story in.  The last picture shows the last page of the story along a stamped image from one of the stamp sets that is included in this You Are Here Collection.  If you want to know the story - you can look back of one of my earlier blog post  -Getting Back to Normal

In this layout, I used a mix papers from different paper packs - Falling for You, Enchantment Fundamentals, and Basics Fundamentals.  This shows how well you can mix and match any of our papers!

Note:  For the "Our Story" cut, I used the Who Tells Your Story image.  In Design Space, I deleted the words "Who Tells" and then I sliced off the "Y" of "Your" and made the "O" larger.  I love how you can manipulate things in Design Space!!

December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - A Little Bit of Pun

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring A Little Bit of Pun, This set has 17 stamps! If you have come here from Brenda Lapp'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 thought these stamps would make great little 3x3 Valentine cards!  I kept them very simple - no extra cardstock or papers.  I just stamped them with my Momento ink and used Watercolor pencils to color.  I used a small Waterbrush to blend the watercolor.  Once that dried, I added some Clear Shimmer with our shimmer pen.   I also used a journaling pen to outline the card to give it a finished look.  Each card is stamped with a red heart.  These were so much fun to create!

Products Used:
White Daisy Cardstock
A Little Bit of Pun - December Stamp of the Month
Black Momento Ink
Cranberry Ink
Watercolor Pencils
Small Waterbrush
Clear Shimmer Pen
Journaling Pen

You can get this special stamp set for just $5 during the month of December with a $50 purchase!

Mixing Fundamental Papers

Today is my youngest daughter's birthday so of course I created her birthday card!   I wanted to use a mix of fundamentals so chose papers from Whimsy and Basics papers.  I based my card design off a design I found on Pinterest created by Denise Tarlington. 

It's really a simple design which made the card very easy!  I used the Thistle and Crystal Blue papers from Whismy and Charcoal designs from Basics.  Basic papers really do go with ANY of our paper packs.  It's my favorite pack out of the four (Whimsy, Adventure, Enchantment and Basics).  I cut a few succulents, my daughter's favorite, from our Flower Market Cricut cartrigde.  I used the lighter tone of Thistle for the base and Charcoal cardstock for the outline.  

Since this is a BIRTHDAY card of course I had to add sparkle so I used our Clear Shimmer pen on the succulents.  I can't believe that my camera actually picked up the sparkles!  

I know the sentiment on the front is not really a birthday sentiment but I thought it was perfect for Kayli.   This is from the stamp set - Inspire C1685.

This month you can get a wonderful deal on our Fundamental products!  The paper packs, complements, and ribbon packs are all 30% off.  That is a VERY NICE savings!  Even better, you can save 40% on BUNDLES!  This has been such a huge hit with our customers. There are only two bundles remaining - Enchantment and Basics.  Don't wait!  This is WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or through November 30th!  Shop today!
