Sew What's New?

Image
During the Thin Cut Flash Sale a few weeks ago I snatched up the super cute Craft On - Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts.  This set has it all... Fun sentiments! The stitching! The needle and thread! And a cross-stitched heart! (it's like they made this stamp set just for me!) And the "sew what's new?" sentiment was perfect for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #327.

Using the Craft On Paper Packet, this card came together quickly. 

Other products used on this card are:
Emerald and Lemon Ink
Gold Shimmer Trim (centre of my flowers)
Gold Sequin
White & Gold Ribbon
Gold Shimmer Brush

I have also decided to enter this card for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge "On the Border", and the challenge is to create a unique border which I think I have accomplished with the stitch stamping next to both pieces of my patterned paper.

Thank you for stopping by, and I genuinely appreciate your comments.  I hope I have inspired you to play along with us at Atlantic Heart…

Craft On!

Close to My Heart had their annual convention in Provo, Utah this past weekend and unfortunately, I was not able to attend but several of my crafty friends were able to go and WOW! Not only did they had a wonderful time but tons of new changes and products will soon be coming our way.  So stay tuned!

This month's featured paper collection is Craft On and I decided to use this collection to make another personalized 4x6 card for my pocket scrapbooking. The design challenge from Atlantic Hearts was the perfect inspiration for this project.

Using the Flower Market Cricut Collection I quickly cut out and assembled my flowers. The super cute mason jar can also be found in the Flower Market Collection.  I decided to cut the mason jar out in yellow gingham because Why Not!?  I used my journalling pen to draw the stitching detail around the edge of my mason jar.

The East. Sleep. Craft. Repeat. sentiment is from the Craft On cut apart sheet (found in the paper collection) and some news I h…

Happy Canada Day!

For this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I had every intention of creating something fun and cute to celebrate Canada Day using the very fun  Celebrate with a Bang (B1680) and Happy Canada Day (M1256) stamp sets but Close To My Heart released a new "bring back my pack", and it is SEASIDE! I loved this paper collection when it was available a few years ago and can't wait to get my mitts on the updated version that they have released for this special.
I was so excited that I pulled out the scraps from my original stash of Seaside and decided to make a quick Picture My Life card with some of the goodies. I love to scrapbook and now do a mix of traditional layouts and Picture My Life which many people know as "pocket scrapbooking" it's quick and easy but still allows you to get creative! The Picture My Life Cards that CTMH create are lovely, but I also love having the option to create my own to really compliment the traditional layouts that I have also cr…

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #321

A speedy card for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  I bought the Party Balloons Stamp & Thins Cuts from CTMH with plans to use it in my Spring Card Workshop, and it got cut from the lineup due to "too many ideas and not enough cards!"  But it seemed like the right choice for this weeks AHSC.

Using the pretty watercolour striped paper from the True Love Paper Packet as my background I thin cut the balloons, string, bow and sentiment banner in White Daisy, Ballerina, Sage, and Mint cardstocks.  All stamping was done using Sapphire Ink.  A bitty sparkle for my bow and a few careful swipes of Clear Shimmer Brush on my balloons finished my cards.  I say careful swipes because both the Shimmer Brush and Sapphire Ink are waterbased which will make the ink run, so I only painted the cardstock and not the ink!

Close to My Heart really does make it quick and easy!  Thank you for stopping by, and I appreciate your comments, I hope I have inspired you to come to play alon…
