Sometimes I just make cards that make me happy and then I send them out. In this case, I made this card specifically for one of my students. He loves pandas! I mentioned a few posts ago that I am focusing now on thank you notes for my students and I hope this made him … Continue reading CTMH If Snowflakes Were Kisses
I am still playing with Winter Penguins from Close To My Heart! This was my favorite set from last year and I still love it. The Jingle Joy paper pack is also fun to work with and I think it pairs perfectly with these penguins. Did you know that CTMH's paper is dual sided? In … Continue reading CTMH Winter Penguins
I am now shifting from Christmas cards to thank you notes for my sweet and generous Kindergarten families! I have been ignoring this cute bunny from the Close To My Heart stamp set: If Snowflakes Were Kisses set.

I can't believe this year was the 10th year I've been doing this paper mitten swap with a group of ladies. Some of the members have come and gone but there are 5 of us that have been there since the beginning. This may be my favorite exchange ever -- it's such a fun variety! … Continue reading Annual Mitten Swap!

This set also comes with a matching thin cut die option if you totally hate fussy-cutting. If Snowflakes … Continue reading CTMH Fancy Brackets
I love how Close To My Heart creates and offers Cardmaking and Scrapbooking kits. They are a package, ready to go, with stamps and matching thin cut dies, papers, card bases and envelopes and usually a fun doo-dad, as I like to call them. They include directions how to make, in this case, 16 cards. … Continue reading CTMH Wonderland and a winner!
I was looking for witty sayings to welcome in December but, I got nothing! Maybe the closest thing was, December - Chapter 12 of 12. How about if I change that to -- Stamp of the Month, number #12?! Weak, I know. But here you go: Owl Love You Forever. You may purchase this stamp … Continue reading CTMH December Specials
