Hello Crafters!!

This is a cute card I made using several Close To My Heart Stamp sets.
One of the sets being the April Stamp of the Month, Balloon Talk.
This month you can pick it up for only $5.00 if you spend $50, an awesome deal!!

For the card, I just stamped directly on a card base using CTMH inks in Lagoon, Pear, Sunset & Hollyhock. I really love how the colors just give it POP!
I have to tell you, I really like the CTMH Stamps! I do a ton of stamping and so far, loving the colors available and how smooth they stamp.

If you place an order of $50 or more in April, you will be entered to win the CTMH Originals Card Making book... see my last post for details and video here.

I am having fun using all my Close To My Heart product so stay tuned for another video that I am working on. 

Happy Crafting!

{ Hodge Podge of Easter Creations!}

Hello Crafters!

I haven't made a video lately but I have been crafting! As you can see from the pic that I have several projects completed and wanted to show them off.

First of all, do you see those cute little flowers? Stay tuned for a video about them. They are so easy and only need a couple of things to make and so super cute!

The baskets are made with my We Are Memories Envelope maker... there are a ton of videos on YouTube how to make them so maybe I will combine both the flowers and basket into one... need to plan that out!

The cards are made with some leftover products I had... chipboard pieces, die cuts at the bottom of my stash box along with using some old products. I pulled out my Martha Stewart punches... I haven't used them in forever! I didn't video any of them because I really was kind of lost in creating one day and before I knew it... well, you can see in the pic. 

A Hodge Podge of Easter creations!

Happy Craftin'
