I CASEd a card from the previous Close To My Heart catalog. I just loved the diamond background but had a hard time mentally wrapping my head around how to do it. Thankfully other CTMH makers came to my rescue and this card was born! This cute panda is one of the animals in the … Continue reading CTMH If Snowflakes Were Kisses – Wonderland
Created to Shine is not just another "light bulb" stamp set. If you look closely, each bulb is different (aren't we all?!) and then, of course, the sentiments are great too! I finally had a few minutes to "play" while my turkey tenderloins cooked in the oven last night. These two cards are so quick … Continue reading CTMH Created to Shine
Yesterday was day 2 of my Christmas card workshop and I can reveal a brand new, Close To My Heart stamp set. I just love the cuties in If Snowflakes Were Kisses.

I am always so grateful to receive happy mail and I couldn't have been more tickled to receive these two wonderful creations this week. Thank you Melissa and Jeanette.

This new coffee set from Close To My Heart is not just for fall and Pumpkin Spice! I've been working on my Holly & Ivy Christmas card workshop and so I had lots of scraps laying around. I thought Pumpkin Treats would be the perfect combination. I'm honestly not that happy with how I painted … Continue reading CTMH Pumpkin Treats meets Holly & Ivy
Last year Close To My Heart unrolled the new VIP program -- where you earn "CTMH cash" to spend on your next order or save up for something big! It's kinda like Kohls bucks, I like to say (but you don't have to carry them around in your purse or pocket! tee hee). At the … Continue reading CTMH Believe in Magic
Close To My Heart's Holly and Ivy paper pack is elegant and yet playful -- you get to decide which side of the paper you use! Once again I paired it up with a deer I cut from a CTMH / Cricut bundle. I shared here how I had to fiddle with this deer but … Continue reading CTMH Holly & Ivy + Deer
