Autumn Theme Layout

Hey There!

I’m still enjoying these fall stamps from Close To My Heart! For this page I used the title from the September Stamp of the month, Grateful for the Life.

The pumpkins and leaves are from the Autumn is Calling and Pumpkin Spice Cardmaking stamps. I got my color inspiration from both the Pumpkin Spice collection and obviously my sister’s family portrait. This picture was perfect with the colors I had in mind!

The title, Grateful, was created using my MISTI stamping tool. It allowed me to add the different colors on the word exactly where I wanted them. I applied the ink to the stamps and used a paper towel to remove ink from where I’d didn’t want that color to be. I’m so happy with how it turned out!

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!

Mother’s Day Mini Album

Hey There!

It has been awhile since I’ve made a mini album!

I created this one to give my mom for Mother’s Day.

Chipboard makes up the base and the whole thing is covered in white cardstock.

All of the paper is from my stash of Close to My Heart things.

I used my HP Sprocket to print all the little 2×3 pictures.

It is filled with pull outs and tags. Fun around every corner 🙂

I’ve posted a flip through you can check out in Instagram HERE.
