Sneak Peak at February Stamp of the Month - Piece of Cake!

Wow - the stamp of the month for February will sure be a hit!  It is the cutest stamp set featuring the yummiest of cakes and cupcakes on frilly cake stands and birthdays wishes.  It is very versatile and simply adorable.  This is the card I created for my team at unit meeting this month.
The colors featured are Petal, Hollyhock, Blush and White.  The card base was scalloped using our corner rounder.  The patterned papers came from the CTMH Jingle collection!  This was a great way of using up my leftover holiday paper!  That is what is awesome about Close to My Heart's paper collections - they are double sided giving you many possibilities to mix and match!

The Piece of Cake Stamp of the Month stamp set can be yours for FREE with any $100 order from Feb. 1-28 or you may purchase it at a discount during that time with your orders.

Time for some Lovin' - Valentine Card Set!

I am so in love with our new Topstitch paper line that I had to create a cute card set with it.  This is so much fun to make.  It features a cute tote bag and a set of four coordinating cards and envelopes.  I will be teaching this workshop upon request, so just get a few friends together!  The bag will double as the perfect little container for your CTMH embellishment packs as well!  It features the Togetherness stamp set which is quickly becoming one of my favorite sets!

New Year, New Idea Book, Fresh Creativity!

I am so excited to be back on track with the Janaury in full swing.  I am loving our new Close to My Heart Idea Book.  It is truly amazing how every season the catalog keeps on getting better and better.  It really makes it easy to create beautiful artwork with the beautiful product! 

So with all the new paper lines we have, of course we have new Workshops on the Go.  Here is a peak of what I am teaching in January: Veranda.  It features the colors Garden Green, Creme Brulee and Chocolate.
We will do some dry embossing and glittering and also adding a lot of accents with our new blooms, which are truly beautiful.  Metal embellishments are stained with Stazon in Timber Brown to add golden undertones to the metal.  The alphabet font I used here is Chocolate Alpha Large - one of my all time favorites!  It is stamped in Chocolate ink and glazed with Liquid Glass.

This second layout using Veranda, you can complete on your own.  It is fun and very versatile.  There is a lot of space on this one for your pictures.  I am loving this paper!

Email me at for more information on how you can attend this fun workshop!
I will post some more artwork tomorrow!
