Time-Out for a new Idea Book!

It's that time of year again - time for another awesome Idea Book from Close To My Heart! I have been a consultant with CTMH for almost 9 years and I can truly say, they just keep getting better and better all the time!!!

If you are in the Toledo/Sylvania, Ohio area and would like a new Summer Idea Book, contact me to pick up your copy FREE! I want to share the joy so no charge for a new book. Or if you want to check it out online, just visit the Close To My Heart website and you can browse the book right there! Just be sure to contact me when you're ready to place an order!!

Also, while you're at the website, be sure to check out the "Tickled Pink" campaign info. This special is good only through the end of May so grab it before it's gone!


How about a little artwork? This 6 x 6 card was created using a pattern from Close To My Heart's newest How-To book: Wishes. It is absolutely incredible and the artwork in this book is stunning - simply stunning!!!! Here's my attempt at the pattern called "Keep it Level":

The image is from the May Stamp of the Month (which you can get FREE - ask me how!) and the papers are from an older promotion kit, Ket to my Heart. The daisy image was stamped on the B&T paper with Blush ink using a stamp from the Motherhood set (in the Spring Idea Book) and the diamond pattern was stamped using the Argyle Backgrounds set. The two scalloped borders are from the new die-cuts, Fancy Cuts Borders. I paper pieced the dress and hair on my "beautiful" girl and then added the brads for an extra pop. Here's a close-up of the paper piecing:


I hope you take a minute to browse through the newest CTMH Idea Book (or better yet, stop by and pick up your FREE copy!) You won't be disappointed!!!

Have a creative day!

Ok, I am back now and trying to catch up on blog posts! I love this card with the paper piecing! And yes, that CTMH catty is the best yet! I drooled over it while I was traveling last weekend!

I love your sugar nellie card below. The paisley BG is perfect for it, as is that yummy ribbon!

How pretty! What a large card, 6x6? That's quite something.
Love the detail work on the piecing.
