Happy Leap Day! Last Day for February Specials!

Today is February 29th, leap day! This means we have one extra day to order the fabulous February Stamp of the Month! Thoughtful Tidings is such a versatile and fun set! I had to make one last card for the month using the Florentine paper pack and the saying "You Touch So Many Lives" The soft, muted colors are perfect for a snowy February day! I used Twilight ink and our Colonial White Die Cut cards. I sponged all of the edges of the card and the papers. This set is available this month only for $17.95 or only $5.00 with any $50.00 purchase! This is also the last day for the Five for February Studio J special! Purchase a 5 pack of Studio J two page layouts to be used at any time in the future get a bonus 5 - two page layouts free!  Combine this with the February stamp of the month for only $5.00!
 Happy Stamping! Sandee

More Roxie! I just love this paper!

I made this card with the Roxie papers and the stampset C1473 Remarkable Wreath. I also used our new 6 x 6 kraft  die cut cards. These have a fun scalloped edge, that close like a book. They can also be put together to make a mini album! $6.95 for 10 cards with envelopes! Happy Stamping! Sandee!

Family Frame with Close To My Heart Roxie Papers and AP Cricut cartridge!

I made this name frame from a $3.00 frame from Walmart! The beautiful Roxie papers and lots of bling really dress it up! Letters were cut with the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge as well as the 3-d flower (top right corner) and the swirls. The letters have precut holes to fill with bling stones so they are evenly spaced! This would make a great wedding gift! The word can be changed up to a babies name for a baby gift maybe with the new Lucy papers! Hope you like it!
Happy Stamping! Sandee

Close to my Heart Footloose Paradise Hawaii Layout

This layout was taken directly from the Close To My Heart Idea Book! (Though of course I changed it up a bit!) I love this paper! It was just what I wanted for our Hawaii pictures. We went to the Big Island in  November of 2010! It was our families first visit to Hawaii! I took a lot of photos and haven't scrapped any of them! This will only be the first of many I do with the Footloose paper packet! Colors are lagoon, creme brulee, sweet leaf and brown bag. I stamped the word paradise, turtle, starfish, seahorse and shells. I also used the wooden shapes! I edge distressed all of the edges and sponged brown bag ink on them. I also added some blue and green sparkles for a little bling! I am really excited to get these pictures off the computer and into an album.
 Happy Scrapping! Sandee

Be My Valentine!

Another Valentine made with the Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy! This card was cut at 5 1/2" on our exclusive white daisy cardstock! The corners come out rounded and the heart is cut out of the center. I cut a matching heart at 2 3/4" out of Lucy. I direct to paper stamped my designs in Tulip ink with stamps from the Rock the Block Set from our January special. Crazy 4 you is from a retired February word puzzle stamp set! I inked the edges and added a bunch of red bling sprinkles! (Hard to see in the picture!) I hope you like it! Happy Stamping! Sandee

Valentine Using AP Cartridge and New Lucy Papers

I made this simple Valentine using the card feature of the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I cut the card at 5 1/2" on tulip card stock. I am really loving all of the card shapes on the cartridge and the extra images. Each time I play with it, I find more images I didn't realize were on it! I also cut the heart cut outs from the Lucy paper packet. Stamping is from a retired February Word Puzzle set. I added some pearls and organdy ribbon. I wish I had ordered the color ready ribbon as it would have been perfect for this project! I may put in a little order this week. My last order only took four days to get to me! CTMH shipping Rocks!!

 Happy Valentine's Day !
