Heartfelt Birthday Wishes!

Hello friends!  I have another card to share with you today that we made at our recent Card Workshop.  If you have had a chance to look through the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book from Close to my Heart you already know you will not only find a lot of wonderful products in it, you will also find a catalog chalked full of great inspiration!  This card was inspired by just that - the amazing artwork created by the wonderful design team at CTMH.  

I started the card with our Colonial White cardstock and then layered it with some Twilight cardstock which has now been retired.  our new Glacier cardstock would look great also.  Next, I layered the card with the blue woodgrain patterned paper form the new Seaside Paper Collection. Before adhering this paper to the card base I used our distressing tool to rough up the edges and then inked it with a sponge dauber using Twilight Ink.

The circle tags where cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. I used our Journaling Pen to create a border around the top circle.  All of the flowers, leaves and flourish are also cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. I added some of my new favorite embellishments which are the Gold Sequins and some clear Sparkles.  

Thank you for stopping by!

Here are some of the supplies I used:

 Seaside Paper Packet (X7192B)

Heartfelt Birthday Wish (M1033)

Gold Sequins (Z2012)

Quick Cards Using PML!

I have another card I created with my leftover cards in the Picture My Life kit.  I am currently working on an album using the Skylark kit and decided to save some of the PML cards to use for some quick and simple cards to have on hand when I am in a hurry.

I just love this phrase that is on this card and didn't really want to cover it up!  I started the card with a base using Lagoon cardstock and then layered it with some White Daisy cardstock.  I used some leftover paper I had from the Skylark Paper pack all from CTMH.

I added some Woodgrain Washi Tape to accent and that's really all there was to it.  Simple and fun!!

What a Hoot - Treat bag

Hello! I have a fun little treat bag to share with you today.  I know we are still at the tale end of Summer but it's time to start thinking about what to do for those Fall parties you might be hosting and this would make a great addition.  

I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut the bag using our new Scaredy Cat Paper.  Once it is cut is is very easy to assemble.  When you are finished cutting the bag out it will have small cuts showing you where you will need to score it.   After you score and fold the treat bag you will need to add some adhesive to hold it together.  It's really that simple - cut, fold, glue!  This would make a great project to assemble with your kids.  

I poked 2 small circles in the top of the bag using a hole punch and then added some Twine.  This step is not necessary but I though it looked cute.  

For the images and sentiment I used our August Stamp of the Month called "What a Hoot" along with Thistle, Black, Whisper and Goldrush Ink all from CTMH.  

This stamp set is so much fun and can be used for several occasions. It looks great when you layer the different pieces of the owl together!

If you love this treat bag and are wanting to make your own remember that this stamp set is only available for the month of August.  You can purchase the stamp set for only $5 with an additional $50 purchase or you can get it at the regular price of $17.95.  

If you need any assistance please let me know.
