Sunshine tag

Just a quick and easy tag to attach to a gift to cheer up someone's day!
Quick tip:  First place the washi tape onto a piece of white cardstock the same width as your washi tape. Then glue down the cardstock covered in washi tape onto your project. This makes the washi tape not transparent so the design shows up better.

Sunburst Card

I finally created a sunburst card! It was so easy, especially thanks to the tutorial that I followed. The tutorial was made by another very talented Close to my Heart independent consultant Susan Williams. You can visit her tutorial here.

I used scraps of paper left over from my Jubliee paper pack. The stamped images are from the current June 2014 stamp of the month Kaboom. There are only a few days left to get this stamp set. After June 30th the stamp set will no longer be available. Here is a pic of the rest of the cute images found on the June SOTM.

Hip Pics Mini Album

The Close to my Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge is for more than just creating traditional 12x12 or 8x8 scrapbook pages. Using the Artbooking cartridge to create frames and fun embellishments combined with the CTMH Hip Pics album (that you can purchase here) equals a fun simple mini album that was created so fast and easy. Now I just have to go print some 4x6 photos to slide right in between the pages.

Today I wanted to share some projects completed using the Lollydoodle paper collection from Close to my Heart. First pictured are some 3x3 cards. I love 3x3 cards, and I think the Lollydoodle paper is my favorite paper in the CTMH Spring/Summer 2014 catalog. This paper pack along with all of the others in the Spring/Summer 2014 are officially retiring July 31, but are only while supplies last. Check out the full list of retiring products here.

Next is a scrapbook layout that would be perfect for any little girl celebrating a birthday! This layout was a piece of cake to make using the exclusive CTMH Cricut cartridges. Both the Artbooking and Artiste cartridges were used to create this layout.
