Heart 2 Heart

This week at Heart 2 Heart the theme is "Life is a Beach".  I was fortunate enough to have vacationed in Hawaii this year and I have hundreds of photos to scrap!  Not all of them are taken on a beach, but this particular day was spent walking on the sand and relaxing...


I used Close to My Heart "Footloose" paper and stamp sets C1495 Just Chillin and  C1500 Under the Sea along with sever cuts from my Cricut.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch 116

I pulled out an old Close to My Heart SOTM (S1301 Happy Valentine's) and paper pack (Laughing Lola) for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #116.  I also used stamp set  D1539 The Happy Couple and Gold Shimmer Trim which I punched with my scallop border punch.  The roses were colored in with Shin Han Markers and accented with gold stickles glitter glue.  I embossed the white background with the CTMH Damask embossing folder.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch 115

Because I need to catch up on my Scrapbooking I made a layout for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #115.  I usually don't do layouts with just one picture, but this one was so cute, I wanted it to stand out.  I used CTMH "Chalk it Up" paper with Pacifica, Glacier and white Daisy Cardstock.

Three Amigo's Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos July 2015 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through


This month we are having a BLAST FROM THE PAST!  I dug out this card that I made before I was even a Close to My Heart Consultant.  It is made with one of my favorite old CTMH paper packs, "Silhouette" and D1349 "Be Yourself" Stamp set.


Now hop on over to Susan's Blog and Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #113

My Card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #113 was made with last month's Close to My Heart Special "Taste of Summer" Paper and stamp set and also the Hostess Rewards Stamp set "Tagged With Love".  I added some glitter gel and liquid glass to some of the strawberries.

I used last month's Close to My Heart Special "Taste of Summer" Paper and stamp set for my Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge card this week.  I also turned the sketch sideways for a better fit on my card.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch 111

I am once again using the Close to My Heart June Stamp of the Month for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #111.  I also used the Hopscotch paper pack, did a little coloring with my Shin Han Markers and Heat Embossed the HAPPY BIRTHDAY in gold.


I used one of the borders from the paper pack with numbers on it, so decided to make it a child's card with their age on it.  Since I do not have anyone in mind to give the card to at the moment, I cut out a few other numbers so I can change it if necessary.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #110

My card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 110 is a Birthday Card for my husband who is turning 60 this month.  I am not sure if it is finished yet, but I had to scan it while he was not around, so there may be some changes done to it before I give it to him next week.  

I used scraps leftover from a retired paper pack from CTMH called Later Sk8r.

3 Amigo's Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos June 2015 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through


This month we are featuring the CTMH Stitch Guide & Ruler.  I have had the Stitch Guide since it first came out but this is my first time using it!  I decided to make a Scrapbook page this month since I seem to be getting backed  up with photos lately. The rainbow at the bottom of my page was punched with the stitch guide and stitched with Baker's Twine.  The scallop border around the page was punched with the stitch guide and colored with my Shin Han Markers.





 In addition to the Stitch guide I also used the following Close to My Heart products:
Washi Tape
Dotty For You (Retired) Paper
Sequins
White Daisy, Pixie, Gypsy, Glacier, Canary, Sunset and Lagoon Cardstock
Rain or Shine Stamp Set
Bakers Twine
Artiste Cricut Cartridge
Glacier & Black Ink
Shin Han Markers
