Less than a week remains to Share The Love!

Less than one week remains to take advantage of the February specials with Close To My Heart! Purchase the Share The Love stamp set for $17.95 and Close To My Heart will donate $7 to Operation Smile!

I've had a litte bit of time to create a few pieces of artwork using this fun stamp set.  It works well for cardmaking or scrapbooking.  This one page layout came together easily using some papers from the Kaliedescope kit.  I made use of the Canary stencil that was leftover from cutting flowers on my Cricut.  Using my Watercolor Paints, I brushed a few lighter colors behind it and used it for a background.  The flowers were cut out using Cricut Artistry.  I added a few images from the Share The Love stamp set and some Gold Bling Gems.  

Next I created a couple of cards using some scraps from the Penelope Kit.  Again, I used my Watercolor Paints for a quick wash of color.  Once dry, I then stamped the camera image 3 times & the sentiment using Black Memento Ink.  Added some Glacier Twine and Blue Gems and called it good! 

The second card was the easiest one to create and I think it's my favorite!  Brushed on a few colors for a background, then loaded my brush with black watercolor paint and tapped the brush to create the splattered look.  Once dry, I used Memento Ink to stamp the sentiment & image, added some Glacier Twine and Silver Sequins.  Love this look! 

You may also want to take advantage of the Stamp of the Month special for February.  The Balloon Animals are adorable!  This set is just $5 with a $50 purchase.  You can place your order here, on my website.

Charlotte Scrapbook & Card Workshop

With Spring just around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time to feature the Charlotte Workshop Your Way Kit.  The soft colors and floral patterns are absolutely gorgeous and will have you ready for Spring in no time at all!

I'd like to offer you a couple of options this month, featuring the Charlotte Workshop Your Way Kit. The first option is a Scrapbook Workshop which features 3 two-page layouts.  

The second option is a card workshop which makes 9 cards, 3 ea. of 3 designs,  and uses the Watercolor Paints, Springtime Wishes Stamp Set and Thin Cuts (which can be used in your embossing machine).


The third option is both the Scrapbook Workshop and the Card Workshop combined.  Close To My Heart has created a cutting guide complete with photos and instructions for both of these workshops, which you can print out from my website, RIGHT HERE.  So even if you can't attend the workshop, you'll have the cutting guides and instructions to create the pages & cards at your convenience. 

The Charlotte Workshop will be held on March 13, 2016 from 2-5pm at my home in Choconut, PA. If you would like to participate in the workshop, please RSVP to me with your order by February 28th.

February Specials

Today I'd like to share with you, two great promotions Close To My Heart is offering during the month of February.  The first one is Share The Love!

Share the love this February by purchasing the exclusive My Acrylix® Share the Love D-size stamp set (CC1060). Filled with adorable icons and loveable sentiments, this stamp set will be a beautiful addition to your collection—but there is more to this stamp set than meets the eye! Not only will you be getting a high-quality, swoon-worthy stamp set by taking part in this promotion, but Close To My Heart will also donate $7 USD of the proceeds from this stamp set to Operation Smile™, an amazing organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children all over the world!* Check out our social media channels all month long to see this stamp set in action, and remember to post your own artwork using the hashtag #ctmhsharethelove to help bring attention to a wonderful and worthy cause.

The second promotion is the February Stamp of the Month-Balloon Animals!  It's super-cute and perfect for creating artwork and cards for kids, or adults who are young at heart!  You can purchase this set on my website for $17.95 or get it for only $5 with a $50 purchase during the month of February.

I loved the layout that the Art Department created in the Seasonal Expressions catalog, so I decided to re-create it using the Enchantment Fundamentals product line.  Love how it turned out!  The colors are so vibrant, perfect for a Birthday Celebration photo.

I'll be sharing a few more items I created with the Balloon Animals stamp set throughout the month of February, so be sure to check back for more ideas using this adorable set.
