For my dear friend!

From my own brain for my dear friend.  It feels so good to be creating again.  This is a 16" x 20" canvas, wood frame from Michael's.  All products are CTMH, with pieces cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  Enjoy!

Me + Pinterest + CTMH =

I found an idea close to this on Pinterest (of course).  All supplies are Close To My Heart and all of the pieces are  cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Super cute!  I have 5 of them for sale for $30.

Oh where oh where could my luggage be?

Close To My Heart convention 2012 was amazing!  So much to learn and take in.  So many new friends and experiences.  But alas, I have no luggage, which means, I have no art to post for you.  So let's all think and sing about where my little lost luggage has gone.  SAD!

So many great new products and projects, I just can't wait to show you.  Stay tuned for the ever exciting soon as we hear from my luggage!

Happy Scrapping!

February Club Layout

STELLA!!!  I am in love with this paper.  I think I say that every month, but this one is a favorite!  The flower stamp set is called Just for you and I believe that this is the perfect combination of acrylic stamps and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge!  What a union!  I love this job!

10 Things I love about you! Layout. I love this "Roxie" Paper from CTMH

This layout was created for my Scrapbook Club in January.  Beautiful flourishes stamped and the use of our New ART Philosophy Cartridge allowed me to cut the tickets and hearts the perfect size for the coordinating stamps.  OOOOh I love the Cricut Cartridge.  IT MAKES ME HAPPY!  Scrapping is Cheaper than Therapy...just sayin'.

A Serpent's Tale

My beautiful daughter in costume for her drama competition.  The whole monologue as part of the layout was a "have to" to for me.  It was impressive for her to have done this.  She spent so much time with this part that it was important to include it.  These great felt shapes add just the perfect touch to this "creepy" layout.  I wanted it to feel eery.  (Yes, those are contacts.  All of my babies eyes are brown.")  Fun project and fun to experience her performance over again!

My little mew mew

My Lexie wanted a kitten.  Oh how she loves this kitty!  Cute 1 page layout made with Sophia paper from Close To My Heart.  Here kitty, kitty!  Try this technique...use your background and texture paper to cut words or items to decorate your page.  Here, I used the words, unity, fun, love, smile, Joy and laugh.  Then I layered them with CS to create this great look.

17 years!

17 years with my best friend.  I have been so blessed with such great kids.  This layout was made to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary and how our family has grown.

This paper is Mischief in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book from Close To My Heart.  I love to add different colors such as the Olive accents to a paper that was intended for Halloween.  Very fun!
