Showcase Your Memories...

Hello Carfty Ones!  I know many of you are always looking for fun and innovative ways to showcase your photos and loved ones.  Let me show you a fun and different way using our Designed Decor Flip Stand Album. Coupled with some simple cuts using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge, this piece comes together in a snap!

The flip stand measures 6 1/2" x 5 3/4" and has an easy to remove bracket so you can customize the inside of the stand.

For this kit I used our new Pathfinding paper pack and added accents of Gold Shimmer Trim and our new Gold Bling Gems throughout.

The Kit includes the following:

  • Designed Decor Flip Stand 
  • Precut paper and decorative ribbon
  • Full Pack of Gold Bling Gems (72 pieces)
  • Full roll of Adhesive-Backed Gold Shimmer Trim (5 yards)
  • (2) assorted Flip Flaps
  • Full Color Instructions 
Kit Price $40.00

What A HOOT! I love this Stamp of the Month...

Close to My Heart has this awesome monthly program called Stamp of the Month. Basically, when you purchase $50 in fabulous scrapbooking and paper crafting products, you are rewarded with a unique stamp set valued at $17.95 that you may purchase for just $5! Yes, $5! I know!!

To kick off our NEW Annual Inspirations catalog, we have launched the August Stamp of the Month...this super adorbs stamp set called What A Hoot!

How cute is this?  So of course, had to break into my new paper packs and had some fun making cards with it.

The first card uses our Halloween themed paper called Scaredy Cat, embossed piece using the Damask Embossing Folder.  The medallion piece was cut out using our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

Then I decided to use the same basic pattern and use our celebration themed paper pack Confetti  and our Dot Embossing Folder to make this cute birthday card. The sunburst cut out was made using our Cricut Artiste cartridge:

(Ha!  Just noticed my owl dropped his bling eyeball before posing for my picture!)

Do not miss out on getting this cute stamp set that is only available in AUGUST!
