The Journey Begins, Art Philosohy, CTMH

Hi All,

I have had an exciting weekend. So I had time to look at my Art Philosophy cartridge from Close To My Heart. I love it! The shape I used this time has been a shape I have really liked for a number of years, I have seen similar shapes from other Stamp and Die companies. But the cost of them would have been at least 25% of the price of the AP cart. With 700 images, you would be so much farther ahead with the AP.
With project was big, I wanted to donate a couple of sets of card for a silent auction we are having at work to support the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life.

Here are the supplies,
AP cart Scallop frame in 3 sizes 3", 1.5", 1.75"
Heritage cart for Silhouette
Damask Paper,
Organza Ribbon,
Black Ink

So here is the front and the back of the card of course you need to sign your work. I made the box from a template I had, but the cards were slightly larger and didn't fit nicely, so I took another turn and wrapped with a ribbon. I used 4 sentiments to cover multi purposes. I made extras to keep for myself. This is something I am trying to do so that I have a supply to use when I need to send a card!

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by.

Scrappingly yours,

Just Flip it!

Hi All,

I got so excited I couldn't wait until I had a a project made with my Close to My Heart items, so here was my latest project.

A card for a friend.

This is what I call flip it. You may remember I did a K.I.S.S. project recently. I was animal print and stood on end. What I did with this cards was flip it so it opens up instead of to the left. Added a ribbon with a small bow. I embelished with a button and liquid glass.

You could dress this card up even more by adding glitter or additional buttons. But this is a K.I.S.S. project!

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be posting more soon. Have a great week.

Scrappingly yours,

I did it!

Hello All,

Sorry this is not a crafting post in a sense, no project. But I had to share that I am now a Close
to My Heart Stamp Consultant! I have been thinking about this for a while, I have always loved their products. One of the biggest reasons is my first exposure to stamping and paper crafts was D.O.T.S the former name of Close to My Heart. So you may know just how long that has been.

CTMH just keeps getting better and better. One of the things that has me so excited is they now have a Cricut Cartridge. The Art Philosophy catridge has over 700 images. Can you believe it? Stamps that match some of the images. WOW! OK OK I'll come down. Thank you for following me and keeping me motivated to share.

So I hope to post again in the next week or two after I have a chance to look over my Kit. But know that I am thinking of you and I hope to have lots of exciting projects to share with you soon.

Of course you know I will be putting in a party soon, so if you are in need of something let me know.

Scrappingly yours,
