CTMH Pathfinding Scrapbook Layout

This fall layout was created following the Close to My Heart - Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 pattern book, pattern #12.  I love the bronze shimmer trim, placing it between the strips of paper, to give the layout some bling and pop!

The chipboard complements add quick and easy dimension to the layout, with some cute images! 

The Rosewood Mini-Medleys are still a favorite and so pretty with the Pathfinding collection!

CTMH Halloween Cricut Card

This fun halloween card was cut using the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and the Scaredy Cat collection.

The card base was cut out of Sunset cardstock:
<Card><Square4> at 5.5” 
With a mat cut from the Scaredy Cat B&T papers:
<Tag> <Square4> at 5.25"

I love the HALLOWEEN title grouped in a square for this card, such a different spin on using these Stickease!

CTMH Shopping Spree TBT

For a little Throwback Thursday fun, wanted to share this fun, silly video from August 2012, in case you haven't seen it before…and if you have, it's still fun to watch again! 

I'm working on a campaign to convince our fabulous Executive Team at Close to My Heart to allow me an annual try at this; meanwhile, I happily cherish the memories of this fabulous experience!!

If you could have a shopping spree anywhere…where would it be?!

CTMH Frightfully Fun Halloween

I am so absolutely in love with the Frightfully Fun Halloween stamp set used in this card…so stinkin' cute!!  I'm not into scary movies and creepy crawlies, but I love Halloween and all the cute costumes and friendly fun that Halloween represents for me!  This card is such a great tribute to the sweet childhood memories of Halloweens past and I love the use of different papers to give the stamped images a pop!  Leave a comment and let me know what you love about this card!

CTMH Halloween Scrapbook Layout

Have you tried our Close to My Heart pattern books yet?  They truly do make it easy to put together beautifully designed layouts and cards!

This Scaredy Cat layout shows how versatile and different the papers in this collection are!  You can create multiple layouts from the paper pack and each can look completely different! 

Make It From Your Heart Vol 2, Pattern #4

So happy to see that I'm not alone in my addiction to the journaling pen doodles!  They really do make plain cardstock look so much cuter and add a little inexpensive embellishing to any project!

The photo mats are popped up with foam tape to give a little dimension to the layout.  Gotta love the bits of purple shimmer trim!!

CTMH Stamping Scrubber

I have a confession…I was truly judgmental when I first saw our CTMH Stamp Scrubber.  It was replacing a huge scrubber we had, so when I saw this little scrubber was about the size of an ink pad, I had my doubts!  Holy guacamole, was I ever wrong!!  This little guy is absolutely amazing…it cleans and dries your stamps all in one!!  Check out this quick video to learn more!

CTMH Halloween Scaredy Cat Scrapbooking Workshop

This is another project using the CTMH Scaredy Cat collection!  Using our NEW Halloween Greetings stamp set, the Scaredy Cat Assortment and our Black Striped Twill Ribbon, this layout provides a completely different look and feel to Scaredy Cat!

The Halloween Greetings stamp really provides the focal points for this layout, with the bats, titles and adorable little witch!

The little witch was stamped twice, first on the Thistle Cardstock, then again on the orange grid B&T paper.  She was cut out of the orange and paper pieced over the Thistle, giving a purple outline for her image.

A piece of Thistle Cardstock was placed behind the punched bat pewter metal shape, combined with some 3D Foam Tape to help it pop both in color and dimension!
The "No Trick, Only Treats" was also paper pieced with the image stamped twice.  First in black ink, then again in Thistle ink.  The black image was trimmed around the dot pattern, while the Thistle image was trimmed around the oval and attached centered on the black image.
