Postcard Perfect

Did you know that May is National Scrapbooking Month?  Not a scrapbooker – no worries the Postcard Perfect products make GORGEOUS cards with a summertime theme.

The paper packet contains 16 sheets , including 4 sheets of white vellum in two different designs.  I love the printed design on the vellum…super cute when layered on B&T paper peaking through.  There is also a coodinating cardstock pack that includes an exclusive “mint” color that you won’t find anywhere else.

I’ll be sharing some fun artwork during May that will make you run right over to my website and add it to your cart.  Unfortunately, this special is only good during the month of May so you aren’t going to want to wait too long.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I finish my hula lessons 🙂

Scrappy Happy

The National Scrapbook Month paper packet, Happy Times, is certainly finding some use in my craft room.  I just love the happy colors!


Several days ago another consultant posted a card on her blog on how to use up scraps,so  I thought what the heck…I’ve got scraps!  Then I reached for my Happy Times which really isn’t scraps yet.  Oh well, I like my card!

You can see Karen’s card by clicking here – she was kind enough to include the measurements so you can give it a spin too!

I hope you’ll order your Happy Times paper packet before it’s gone at the end of this month.  Time flies so why not order yours today?

Thanks for stopping by!

A Taste of Summer – National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop

May is National Scrapbook month and what better way to celebrate than with an amazing paper packet and matching stamp set from Close to My Heart.

This “A Taste of Summer Blog Hop” is showcasing the work of 37 amazing Close to My Heart consultants that bring you the stamp of the month hop on the first of each month.  If you’ve come here from Traci Godbee’s blog you are on the right track, if you happen to have started here make sure you continue the loop to see the cream of the crop in artwork.

I chose to make a card box and matching cards with the bright cheerful papers.  The My Creations Journaling Cards Box was easy to cover with my favorite B&T paper…the problems started only when I couldn’t decide which side of the paper to use 🙂

I reached for the Make It From Your Heart pattern book to complete my card selection.  I have some favorite patterns, but most often need to double check their measurements.


Now “hop” on over to Melissa Robinson’s blog where she’s sure to have something “peachy keen” for you to feast your eyes on.

Remember, the Taste of Summer items are only available until May 31st!  You can order them here or contact your local consultant.

Waterfall of Fruit During National Scrapbook Month

Close to My Heart introduced an amazingly fun paper packet and matching stamp set for National Scrapbook Month.  When I saw this paper and stamp set I immediately thought that a waterfall would be perfect to showcase the fun colors.







I love cards that have movement and although it may seem very detailed, the waterfall card is pretty simple to make.  I found a step by step tutorial at  Split Coast Stampers and I’ll be teaching it in my card class this month.

During the month of May you can get these bright summer papers for just $8.95 and the matching stamp set for $17.95.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you’ll take advantage of this tasty special.

What Could You Go Dotty For?

When I saw the bright colors of Close To My Heart’s National Scrapbook Month paper packet Dotty for You, I fell in love. Spring in the Pacific Northwest lends it share of gray rainy days with a little sprinkle of sunshine.  Working with the Dotty for you Paper Pack filled me up with all the Vitamin D I needed!

My first project is a birthday card for my niece – personalized with a big bright “M” on the front.  I thought when she was done with the card she might be able to use the card front as a label for her bedroom door.  She is after-all a very grown up 10 years old!  I loved the butterflies so managed to use my Art Philosophy cartridge and cut an adorable matching gift bag!
