CTMH---Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Thanks for joining me in another round of the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This month we are featuring April's- Flower Pot. A set of 16 flower pot stamps that are amazing! You will see many different creations from the fabulous consultants in this blog hop! This stamp set features different bunches of flowers, pots and a window box. There are three sentiments to go with it!

For the hop this month, I created a beautiful card. I stamped the window box in Cocoa and used my markers and water brush to color in the shutters and plant holder. I stamped the flowers in bamboo and used a combination of markers (darker flowers) and waterbrush (lighter flowers) for the flowers and leaves. I put some bitty sparkles in the centers of the flowers for some bling!

CTMH--- 3 Days left!!!!

It's not too late to take advantage of the Close to my Heart new consultant special. I truly can't understand why every scrapbooker or cardmaker wouldn't jump on this special like my 1 new consultant did this month. Where else are you going to get $400 of new products for $99 plus shipping? These are not clearance items, they are NEW, wonderful, current Close to my Heart products and along with those you get free training, my support in helping you tailor consulting to your needs, free products, creative ideas galore, time away from home, and extra money!! What's not to love! The time is almost gone for those four extra brand new stamp of the month stamp sets though. (not shown above) April 1st, they are no longer part of the new consultant kit. Are you going to let this bargain get away????

CTMH---Studio J- Tinkerin'

I whipped out another Studio J layout today! Honestly, I'm trying to take advantage of a promotion for us consultants that ends on the 31st.

I used up all my Tinkerin Paper pack months ago, so this worked out perfectly for me!

You know, it almost feels like cheating to use Studio J and complete a fabulous layout in no time at all and have scrapped 12 photos!

CTMH---Studio J- Halloween

Sorry for the lack of bloggin... it's been tax season!

But I'm back and have lots to share over the next few days :)

I'm back with yet another Studio J layout! I can honestly say a couple things about Studio J
*The quality of layout is amazing! Seriously, I have one printed and its fantastic!
*SO EASY! Now that I've created a few, my last one took me LESS THAN 30 minutes to create from start to finish!

It is so simple, affordable and FUN! Here's what I did:

  1. Upload the photos you want to use.
  2. Pick a pattern for your layout. --Match it up with the # of photos you are using
  3. Pick a paper kit --with 45+ paper kits to choose from (including some retired)
  4. Drop and drag your photos into the photo wells
  5. Create titles and add journaling
  6. Embellish with coordinating My Stickease, ribbons, metals, buttons etc... You can even color them to match your paper. You can even distress your paper like I did here
And voila:

Blog Hoppin on St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day and welcome to another round of the ASP blog hop!

Today we are inspired by spring! These (oh so cute, but SOLD OUT in my girl's size) pajamas from Gymboree are what we are taking our inspiration from today!

I LOOOOVE the blue and white polka dots mixed with the daisy, so that's what I went with here!

I also made this same card as a Birthday Card!

CTMH--- Treat Basket Tutorial

I created a little treat basket for my club ladies to make at the Kit of the Month playdate tomorrow :) I got this idea from a fellow Joyful Hearts teammate Gail Blask.

So bear with me as I give you my first ever tutorial on how to create one of your own :)

Start with a 6x6 piece of cardstock, scored at 2" from all sides (creates a tic-tac-toe looking pattern).

Cut the score lines on two sides, the opposing sides, to the middle score line.

Fold in the middle first then the two sides forming a point. Adhere.

You will also need a 1"x12" piece of cardstock for the handle and another piece of patterned paper at 3/4"x12" for decoration. Adhere the handle on the inside of the basket.

Use any kind of die cut you like to cover the sides. I used the bunny from my Doodle Charms cricut cartridge for the Easter treat baskets and cut some hearts from the Doodle Charms cart to form 3 leaf clovers for St. Patrick's Day treat baskets!

New Layouts--- Allie at One

Sometimes I'm afraid to scrap pictures that I absolutely love. I fear that I'll ruin the pictures by not creating layouts as beautiful as the pictures themselves, or that they'll take away from the pics. So it usually takes me a while to scrap the good professional ones!

Here are Allie's 1 year photos. I love how these turned out :)
