CTMH Precious Moments
I have been having so much fun creating with Close To My Heart's March stamp of the month: Precious Moments. My set didn't arrive until mid-March (my own fault for not preordering it!) and I didn't realize how much fun I would have coloring it! Here I used Copic markers for this sweet kangaroo. This … Continue reading CTMH Precious Moments

CTMH Hedgehog Cuteness! Precious Moments SOTM
This card started out as a clean and simple card like the ones I created here. And then, as papercrafting "oopsies" tend to happen, my card started to evolve. First, after watercoloring this little hedgehog from Close To My Heart's March stamp of the month, Precious Moments, I decided to add a little blue to … Continue reading CTMH Hedgehog Cuteness!

CTMH More Cherish!

CTMH Thoughtful Critters Fun Fold
Ack! I had to use a lot of paper for this fun fold card. Well, not really "a lot" but often I justify just doing a regular styled card because it's less paper. Do you hoard your paper too?

CTMH Feathered Friends
I just love how this card turned out! It's from my recent card workshop and everyone's bird turned out slightly different but all were beautiful! This sketch layout is from Close To My Heart's Make It From Your Heart volume 4. It's probably my favorite and a good way to use up scraps! The bird … Continue reading CTMH Feathered Friends
