I’m really excited to be a part of the Close to My Heart family. Originally, I was just going to buy product at a discount, but the more I thought about it – the more I thought maybe, just maybe, I can help other women (or men) be able to create – like I’ve said – I don’t consider myself creative, but I do love to create things. Today’s creations are using the exclusive National Scrapbooking Month paper pack and stamp set from Close to My Heart. We’re in the middle of spring here in Utah, but with these bright and bold papers and fruit inspired stamps, you can be dreaming of summertime! These two products are only available during May – so get yours before they’re gone!
The exclusive paper pack comes with 2 each of 6 different B&T Duo’s papers (double sided) for only $8.95. I used 1 packet of paper to make all the creations on this page, and still have a few full 12 X 12” sheets left over. The stamp set is a D-sized set with 15 yummy, fruity stamps for only $17.95. This stamp set can be used with the Cricut Artiste cartridge for adding dimension. Purchase either of these products from my website – gerri.ctmh.com – and I’ll send you directions for the scrapbook and card layouts that follow.
Both layouts come from CTMH Corporate Office. The “Life is Grand” layout uses just 1 each of 2 different patterned papers, white cardstock, white shimmer trim and white sequins. Documenting Moments (D1647) is the My Acrylix stamp set used. This layout leaves room for 2 X 2” pictures & journaling space.
Another Corporate Office layout – “You Make Me Happy” uses 1 sheet each of 2 other B&T Duos. I like how the zip strips from the sheets peek out at the bottom (the little purple strip). This layout has room for two 6 X 4” and three 3 X 4” pictures. Again, we used the Documenting Moments My Acrylix set
Next we have some really cute cards – four of them are made mostly with the scraps from the above layouts. The cards use both the Documenting Moments and the Taste of Summer My Acrylix sets. These cards also use silver shimmer trim, some Bitty Sparkles, squares of pear cardstock, as well as canary, smoothie, and sunset exclusive ink pads. The 4 cards on the outside are from CTMH and the two in the middle are my ideas.
Thanks for looking. I hope you were inspired to create something. If you would like the directions for these layouts and cards, order the Taste of Summer paper pack (CC1038) or the Taste of Summer My Acrylix set (CC1039) available during May 2015 and I will send them to you. To order any of these products, just go to http://gerri.ctmh.com/.
Have fun creating!
