February SOTM Pre-cut Kit!

Hello Crafty Friends, 

I have to admit, when I first saw the February stamp of the month, I was super puzzled on how I would use it? It comes with one sentiment, which is really a doodle/border. So as I started to create my February artwork, I left that stamp set out and open on my work area, hoping that something would come to me.... You know what I have used it on every project in some fashion or another. 

So what is the stamp of the month? The 'Stamp of the Month' is a new (monthly-exclusive) Stamp set that is available for $18.95

You can also snag it for $5.00 (a $13.95 savings) when you place a $50.00 order! 

WAIT if you are a VIP Member you can earn it absolutely FREE when you place that $50.00!!

It also brings a new (exclusive from me) Stamp of the month Pre-cut Kit 

When your order via my website reaches $50 (before Shipping/Tax and AFTER any VIP credit is taken off) you will receive the Standard Kit FREE!!!!!

Doodle and Border stamps in a variety of styles I have learned is a MUST have staple in your stamping arsenal!

The FREE Pre-cut kit will come directly from me and will include all of the pre-cut pieces, embellishments, as well as card bases and envelopes!

I will also email you the assembly guide, and the photos of the completed projects for assembly assistance.

You'll want to join me over at my Facebook Business Page where I will be demonstrating creation tips and assembly of each of these projects!

For this months kit I have paired the February stamp of the month with the fun Hey Hi Hello  (#D1989) stamp set! If you do not already have this set in your scraping arsenal, you will want to add it to your cart as it is not included in this months kit.

Canary, Lagoon, sapphire, CuTe CaRd!

Hello Crafty Friends! 
Last night in my VIP group, we played a little mystery game to make a card. 
I use a little app on my phone to spin 4 different wheels (think the popular game show that uses a wheel) each with a different set of parameters.  I go live in my group with a special guest group member. Together we create a card based off those parameters.  

The surprise elements were: 
Theme: Birthday card
Colors: Canary, Lagoon and sapphire colors
Embellishments: Clear sparkles
CHANCE: Leaves! 

Here was my interpretation of those parameters! 
I absolutely love how it turned out. 
I water colored the flowers with CTMH water-based dye inks. HOW? By smooshing some color onto my all purpose mat, I used my Med water brush to pick up some color and paint. 
The key is to keep your water less, especially if you're not using watercolor paper. Also make sure your using an ink that will not bleed with the water. I used archival black ink. 

To stick with the parameters,  to get my green leaves, I used Canary and Lagoon mixed together ❤  cute green, right! 
I hope you've been inspired to get creative and crafty! 
Let me know what you think of my card in the comments below! 

Supplies listed below can be found on my CTMH shopping site: 
Bright stack 6x6 papers
White daisy 
Espresso CS

Stamp sets:
Stitched Florals 
February SOTM  Doodle Borders 
So happy together
Wishing you everything
Canary,  Lagoon, sapphire, archival  black 

Itty bitty sparkles

Additional supplies:
Med water brush
All purpose mat
3D foam tape
Microtip non stick scissors 
Tape runner
Clear shimmer brush

My Goals are not Your Goals.

Hello Crafty Friends,

So its February 1st and I finally worked out my goals for the year pages. This is where I can write my goals down and be accountable to myself. I snapped my picture before I started writing, for a couple of reasons. 
1. Some of these will be personal
2. My goals are not your goals. 

What do I mean by that? I am personally challenging you to create a layout with your goals for the year, and I want them to be your goals not mine. Now I am not tooting my own horn and saying what my goals are, will be everyone's goals. But I really want you to dig deep and pull inspiration from whats around you, what you want to happen, what you want to change....that can only come from within! 
My layout is inspired by a sketch from pinterest. 

My paper is, well all scraps from my stash (I am not cutting up paper for random layouts) because scraps need love too. 
My stamping comes from 2 stamp sets.
I truly hope I have inspired you to get creative,  set your goals and make pretty things! 



Doodle Borders on pages and cards?

Hello Crafty Friends, 

When you doodle, how do you do it? With a journaling pen, with stamps or both? I typically use my pen. I often just add a little line and call it a day. However last fall, about November I started adding additional details to my lines with mini and micro stamps. So starting today, Close to My Heart introduced a new stamp set focuses around doodles and borders, called.... Doodle Borders!

HUGS Card: 

With Valentines day upon us (13 days away) I whipped up this cute card, and added the Doodle Borders heart stamp in Peach and the only sentiment in black at the bottom! A little wispy embellishing thread behind the sentiment draws your eye in. The itty bitty (they truly are itty bitty) sparkles gives off the right amount of, well, sparkle. I finished embellishing my card with a doodle border with my black journaling, and adding some shimmer to my squares. Super cute, right? 

Say What? Layout:

Next I have a 12x12 page to show off, using this new stamp set, Doodle Borders. Again this stamp set is CHUCKED full of doodles and border stamps. Before I forget, my layout is made with only scraps. On the lagoon piece (top) you can see a very cute loop stamp repeatedly stamped from left to right. The Bluebird piece (center left) you can see all of these tick like mark doodles. This stamps set is a small square and with some careful placement and repeated stamping the entire piece was covered in no time at all.  To wrap up my doodle stamping, I used the sentiment included in the stamp set, to repeatedly stamp all over the clover cardstock. For each one of these pieces, I used tone on tone stamping, or I used the same color of ink as the paper in which I was stamping. Lagoon ink on Lagoon cardstock, Clover ink on Clover Cardstock and Bluebird ink on Bluebird Cardstock. I love the look of this so much.

I stamped blank White Daisy  with the quotable words stamps. The fun title comes from the NEW Marquee Alphabet stamp set! 

I hope I have inspired you with the new Doodle Borders stamp set to get crafty! 

Each month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set valued at $18.95 for just $5—or you can get it for FREE as a VIP Customer! Qualify for this special pricing by placing an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products.
