Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Fancy Pants Baby Mine papers, Prima flowers, Just Blooms (CTMH flowers), Mocha Opaque Pearls, Love Life stamp set, Eclectic Edges stamp set, and Cocoa ink.  Layout idea from Scrapbook Generations.  Title idea from The Perfect Title.

Stamp Sunday #47: Love Blooms

C1511 Love Blooms


Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Love Blooms stamp set, Flirty Paper Packet, Goldrush ink, Brown & Tan Sparkles, and Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems.

These are the cards from the Flirty Workshop on the Go Kit with modifications.  I purchased the Love Blooms stamp set with the Flirty Paper Packet instead of the Flirty Workshop on the Go Kit.  I replaced the stamped images and dimensional elements with images from this stamp set and added a variety of different embellishments.

November 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – All Scraps

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Joy’s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.  This month we are focusing on our scraps.  This is one of my favorite challenges because I love using things up.

Supplies used: Die Cuts with a View paper, Close to My Heart ribbons, Close to My Heart Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes, American Crafts Thickers, and Close to My Heart Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems.

When I first think of “use up scraps” I think of paper.  But for this hop I decided to do something different and use up some embellishments, specifically scraps of ribbon.  I really like using paper like this that already has a pattern on it.  It makes for a quick and easy layout.  I also like adding embellishments to the base like the pearls I added to the flower centers along the bottom.

I used the sketch below from The Scrapbook Room.  This would also work great to use up scraps of paper.

Now hop on over to Judy’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.

I used this sketch from Even More Scrapping:

Artiste Blog Hop – 3D Objects

Welcome to our The Artiste in 3D Blog Hop!

If you are coming from Stephanie’s Blog, you’re in the right place.  If this is your first stop, you can go to the beginning: Lucy’s blog – Love 2 Create.

I chose the little booties on page 63 of the Artiste handbook for my 3D project.  This was one of the first images that stuck out for me when I was browsing the new book with all the fun projects this cartridge has to offer.  They remind me of some cute little shoes that my daughter has and these will hang in her room.  I had a hard time deciding how to embellish these because I wanted to keep them simple.  I chose the Bitty Pearls and Color-Ready Ribbon.  I thought about adding some of the Rosette Ribbon but didn’t have any at the time and thought they looked fine how they were.  So cute!
