August SOTH plus!

These are half the cards I made using the Wishes (Close To My HEart)book cutting diagram "Just Because." With four sheets of cardstock and two sheets of B & T pattern papers, following the cutting diagrams, I made 20 birthday cards. I used only the August STOM "It's Your Day" (D1352) and "Happy Birthday" (C1257) stamp sets. Cardstock and B & T papers are from the Emporium and Emporium creative basics. All products used are Close To My Heart. Fun!

The start of a new layout

I found this pattern in the June 2009 Creating Keepsakes, you can download it from their site. I machine stitched the guitar strings, used one of those little wheel things to make an 1/8" border around the cranberry cardstock guitar with the black.
What will I do with it next...oh I have a plan.

Tropical Garden layout

A layout of pictures that Autumn took while in FLorida early May. Love the colors! Whoops-A-Daisy (CTMH) paper pack just seemed to go with it perfectly! I hand stitched a border around the picture on both of the pages.

A preview of August class

August class will be this Event Calendar. This is a great item to have and to give! We will decorate a page for every month and then you will be able to keep tract of those occasions you want to send card for.
Classes will be held Monday August 3rd and Monday, August 10th at 6:00 at my house. Please bring scissors, adhesive and personal cutter. Cost of this class is $15.00-a little more than usual due to cost of supplies. Please RSVP by July 20th so I can get calendars ordered. Thanks!
All products used in this picture are CTMH.

July 3, 2009 Hell-o I'm here

Hi, welcome to my new site. I am in the process of switching from my "Close To My Heart" site to this Blog. Though you won't be able to order "Close To My Heart" or "Scentsy" from here, you can always call or email me with an order and I will process it ASAP. It just doesn't make much "scents" to pay for a site when it isn't paying for itself.
So without further we go.
