Spinner Interactive Care

Hey There!

Guess what? I’m till doing autumn themed projects using around here!

Today I have an interactive card with a spinning front. Close To My Heart has a Thin Cut die called Card Front Spinner to make these types of cards!

I love how the leaves look like they are blowing in the wind when this wheel is spun.

You can visit my Instagram reels to see this card in action!

I’ve been posting all kinds of projects using these same colors, stamps and papers. Check out my recent posts, including my Happy Fall Ian card!

Grateful For This Life Album

Hey There!

I wanted to share the scrapbooking pages I have been working on! I used the prompts on the CTMH September Stamp of the Month, Grateful for this Life to create a 6×8 album. This stamp set is only available through September. Also, you can get it for $5 with a qualifying order! Even better, as one of my VIP’s, you could get it free! Visit my site for details about the VIP program.

I also used the Pumpkin Spice paper collection, with coordinating stamps and colors. Scroll down to the end for the full list of supplies.

I am IN LOVE with the color combinations used in this paper collection. That deep blue, called Harbor, which is brand new combined with the beautiful pinks is just perfect.

Each two page layout was created using a prompt from the SOTM set. I loved having these to help me reflect on what things I am grateful for. As a bonus, it helped me document my fall 2020, which I hadn’t done yet!

If you like these autumn themed pages check out my autumn cards Happy Fall Ian and Grateful For This Life card.

Thanks for taking the time to peek at my creations! I’ll list the products used in case you love these paper, colors and stamps as much as I do!

Grateful For This Life

Hey There!

It is finally here! The new annual Close To My Heart core catalog and the Sep/Oct catalog are available to order from!!

I am very much in love with the September stamp of the month that I have featured in this card. Not only does it make a cute card, but it has great prompts to make me reflect on being thankful. I’ve got a project I’m working on showcasing that. You’ll be seeing that in a few days 🙂

For this card I also used two new fall themed stamps and two of the new colors! I’m thrilled with all the new colors, they’re amazing. The new colors I used were Papaya and Shortbread, but I also used Paprika, which is a previous color that goes beautifully with Papaya.

There isn’t any patterned paper or color card stock on this card. Stamped directly on to the card base with the words, and stamped onto White Daisy card stock for the pumpkin, gourd and leaves from Autumn is Calling and Pumpkin Spice- Cardmaking Stamp sets

It is a little hard to see in the picture, but I used a shimmer brush to add some glam to the pumpkin, gourd and leaves. I can’t enough of the shimmer brushes!

Here is a list of all the supplies I used to create this card:

Tutti Frutti Summer Pocket Page

Hey There!

Can you believe August is almost over? With it goes the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Tutti Frutti Summer!

I had sat down to play with next months sotm, but couldn’t resist playing with this one again.

These fruits just embody summer. I love using them with pool pictures. Even though fruit and swimming don’t traditionally go together, I think it works!

Be sure to check out my shopping link to get this stamp set before it’s gone! Also, the core catalog and the Jul/Aug mini catalog are also gone at the end of the month.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CTMH August Stamp of the Month

Hey There!

I wanted to pop in and share this fun summery card I created.

I used the August Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart, called Tutti Frutti Summer. The orange and strawberry paper is from my stash, and sadly not available any more.

Shhh..the pink in used on the strawberries and the background is the new CTMH Color of the Year. That color will be released and available on September 1st!

This Tutti Frutti Summer SOTM stamp set is only available until Aug 31st, so don’t wait!
