Scrappy Saturday

Here's another "Magical" layout about convention.
These pics were taken at the Consultant Creativity Showcase.
That's where consultants can bring a display of their best work.
The room is so full of talent and creativity.
Especially from our team as you can see the work of the lovely Rose Blossoms above.
It is a great time to chat with lots of other consultants and share ideas.
Did I mention how much I LOVE Close To My Heart and my CTMH sisters?
Have a great weekend!
Monday is our team blog hop.
Come back for some amazing creative inspiration from our team.

From the Notebook

Here's a last look at some cards created with the
Stamp of the Month
These were inspired by a card I got from Brenda Rose.
I used the Magical papers, Shimmer Trim, and some Washi Tape.
This really is a fun set and I can see myself using those lines for journaling spots.
The tiny stamps will be great for my planner too.
As usual, the SOTM is only $5 with a $50 order
and $17.95 on its own.
It will only be around for a few more days.

Florence Prints

I made a collection of cards using the Florence Paper Packet, coordinating Complements, and Florence Sequins.
The Birthday Wishes stamp is just one you get in the 
Birthday Wishes stamp set,
which is only $2.95!

These little stamp sets are such a great value!

Scrappy Saturday

Happy, scrappy Saturday.
Since I have been working with new product and I cannot share here yet,
(boo, hoo), 
I am sharing a layout created by the CTMH art department.
I love the layers and how they used the current SOTM.
does not have used with school-themed layouts as you can see here.
I love the file tab and how they layered papers from so many different paper packs.
I will be filing that idea away when I challenge myself to use up some papers I have been collecting.
Here's another look at that awesome stamp set you can get for $5 with a qualifying purchase.


Have a super weekend friends.
Stay cool and hydrate.

Animal Greetings

"Whale, hello there!"
This time of year I always sort through my stamps to make room for new sets.
As I came across the
Operation Smile
"Animal Greetings" stamp set,
I knew I had to make a few more cards before I could put it in the
sale pile.
I was inspired by some cards I saw at the CTMH convention card swap.
Sorry I cannot remember the name of the creator but her cards were adorable.
Her repetitive images were all topsy-turvy but I just didn't have luck with that so I kept them all in a row.
Here's one with the sheep.
This set is perfect for animal lovers and the best part is that with the purchase of this set,
CTMH will donate $7 to Operation Smile.
It was so touching to see video and hear the presentation of a doctor associated with
Operation Smile.
Makes me proud to be a part of an organization that makes a difference in the lives of children.
Here's a look at the sweet set which you can find HERE.

This set will be retiring at the end of the month but never fear there will be a new
Operation Smile set and it is darling!
