The new Beware stamp set is currently one of my favorites! It's almost time for Halloween fun!

This first card I made using the same design from a card in the idea book. I just changed up the colors of the paper to utilize paper I had on hand. To make the bat, stamp the image a second time in black, cut out and adhere in the middle and lift up the bat's wings a bit so it looks 3-D.

This second card I created using up the scrap paper I had leftover. To make the trick or treat label, I created a mask to cover up the journaling lines so it was left blank where the lines would have been. Then I went back and stamped trick or treat in Garden Green. Spooky fun! I used CTMH brads, stamps & ink.

Animal Cookies!

One of my favorite paper packs from the summer idea book is Animal Cookies! The paper is so fun & happy! I made a little 5X7 album for my youngest for his first year. Now, I just have to get the pictures in and he'll have a little peek at how much he has grown from month to month! I used the My Creations 3-Ring Binder, Animal Cookies level 2 paper pack & the Today's Date stamp set.

And a little proof that once in a while I do get a moment to scrap a page :) Again, using Animal Cookies, Simple Alphabet Dimensional Elements, buttons & Bigger Brads.

There's still time!

Don't forget - post your comment with your favorite new item under the "Little Giveway" post below!

Here's my first attempt at a circle card. I'm totally addicted to sparkles lately! A little bling goes a long way! I used a pattern from Wishes, Close to My Heart's new design book by Jeanette Lynton. Enjoy!

I'm so excited to be having my very first card workshop! It will be on September 30. I absolutely love this paper pack! I put together my cards last week and this is what the cards in the basic kit look like:

There is an option to add on to the basic kit which includes brads, hemp and dimensional elements that coordinate with the twitterpated paper packet. This is what your cards look like with the additional embellishments.

The best part of the workshop set up is that each person not only leaves with two of each card, but they take home their extra paper and supplies and the guide that has directions for additional projects to make at home! If you're interested in coming, please let me know! Sign ups must be done by Sept 14th to allow enough time to order the kits.

Cards galore!

September is National Stamping Month and Close to My Heart is offering a great card kit that you can get for free with a qualifying purchase of $60 in My Acrylix stamp sets. Last week, during naptimes I put the cards together and it was so fun!

This is everything that comes in the kit!

And this is one set of the cards (the kit makes two of each card!). I'm going to use one set as a gift.

It's a great time to stock up on those stamp sets you've been wanting & get this awesome kit for free! Order early though, it's while supplies last!!

You can view the details online here or email or call me for more information or to place your order.
