Scrappy Saturday

Happy, Scrappy Saturday!
I am sharing some layouts about the
2017 Close To My Heart Convention.
So excited to actually scrap current photos, lol.
That's only because we got the supplies and plans to create these layouts at the
creative session at convention.
At the time, I didn't even realize that the colors coordinated with the
CTMH backdrop and convention theme.
They are smart like that!
This photo shows me and Kim Hill, my Kraft-y Heart partner in creative endeavors.
We were at the home office for the tour.
There is artwork and inspiration at every turn.
The Cricut cuts "Convention" and "Utah" are included in the new
It will be available August 1st.
And then we took photos at the convention center.
I am with Kim in one and my roomie Kristina in the other.
The highlight of convention is seeing those ladies and other team members.
Love these girls!
You are also getting to see the Basic and Whimsy Fundamentals.
So many beautiful products in the new catty!
Thanks for letting me share.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Today's pair of cards feature the 
You Only Live Once stamp set.
And you are getting a sneak peek at our new. color. of. the. year.
Are you ready for it...Bashful!
Starting August 1 you can pick this color up in an ink pad, re-inker, Pigment Ink Square,
Cardstock Pack and Glitter Paper. 
The Bashful Glitter Paper is gorgeous!
It is hard to capture the true prettiness of it in a photo. 
It's soft and so sweet with gold and also with black.
I think it will turn into one of those "go to" colors that will coordinate with many others.
YOLO so buy the stamps, right?
And STAMPAGANZA is the time because if you buy two stamp sets, you get the third FREE!
