Sweetheart Workshop Cards


These cards were made from the Close to My Heart Sweetheart Workshop. (please ignore the yellow in my photos, must be something with the lighting)   to attend my workshop on March 11, 2011 or order the kit to create it on your own.  They make great cards for anniversaries, weddings, baby, or birthday.  I love the use of Liquid Applique!  It’s definitely got me thinking of ways to use it more!

Let Us Grow With Love Layout

This layout is from a retired Close to My Heart Workshop Kit.

Family Christmas Layout

This layout was made using the Jingle Workshop Kit by Close to My Heart (no longer available).

Valentine – Love – Anniversary Cards

Supplies used: unknown striped paper and ricrac.

See my Love Layout I posted the other day?  Well, I used the scraps to make three cards like this one.  They were very quick and easy to make since I already had all the coordinating supplies together.  This is a great way to use up your scraps!!

Love Layout

Supplies used: unknown pattern paper, Technique Tuesday scalloped baseboards, layered title by Colorbok, Making Memories Rose Petal Paint, Making Memories Rose Petal Specialty Glaze, CTMH Sparkles, Making Memories flowers, unknown ricrac, and eyelets.  Based on a Becky Fleck January 2011 Page Map sketch.  Scrap Our Stash February Challenge.

The February Challenge at Scrap Our Stash this month is LOVE.  I really dug into my stash for this layout.  I think the patterned paper may have been from the Target Dollar Spot at least a year ago, the scalloped baseboards are from when a local scrapbook store closed years ago, and the eyelets and brads are even older.   The ricrac is from a bag I found at a rummage sale!  I am not one for empty space on a layout or just plain cardstock so I filled the white cardstock space with heart-shaped eyelets to create my own patterned paper.  I painted the chipboard border with a pink base topped with a coat of specialty glaze.
