Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter H. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their H element will be featured in their post.

Surf's Up Layouts

In honor of Throw Back Thursday I pulled out some old Close to My Heart paper and created these layouts with pictures fro 2013 (also in honor of Throw Back Thursday)!

These layouts are made using Surf's Up. The two page layout is from a sketch from CTMH's Make it From the Heart Vol. 2.


The second layout I created using the scraps of Surf's Up. 

Join me next Thursday to see what what I find in my craft room!

Easter Cards

The Hopscotch paper pack has been one of my favorite papers to play with the past couple of months. Today I used the rest of my Hopscotch paper pack and the and an old Easter stamp "Some Bunny".

I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the scalloped circle at 2" and then stamped with Smoothie ink "Some bunny loves you." 

I colored the little girl and her Easter Basket with the fabulous ShinHan markers sold by Close to My Heart. 

I hope everyone has some bunny to share their time with this Spring.

Blushed Easter Set

Over the next month I will be showing you all the different creations you can make with the 4 Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridges. Today I am showing casing the Artise along with the Brushed paper pack and Paper Fundamentals Adventure Assortment.

The basket and grass can be found on page 79 of the Artise cartridge. The basket is cut at 2" and only took me about 2 minutes to fold and assemble. It will be perfect to fill with candy for a small Easter gift. The grass on the card was cut at 1" and I cut it twice and layered it so it would fit all the way across the card. The sun is a 1 1/2" circle that I embossed with the CTMH Honeycomb embossing folder and inked with Canary ink. The clouds are from page 66 of the Artise cartridge and I inked them with Crystal Blue ink. The rabbits are from the Artfully Sent cartridge and cut at 2", 1 3/4" and 1 1/2" and the smallest bunny is raised off the paper with an Adhesive Spring from Close to My Heart.

Washi Tape Frame

Many of my customers love washi tape and everything about it! I have been slow to get on the band wagon but have been trying harder to incorporate washi tape into my crafty projects. I decided to use the Close to My Heart Black Arrow washi tape and a wooden frame from IKEA to create this frame.

Close to My Heart has 10 different styles of Washi tape to meet all of your crafty needs.

Confetti Workshop on the Go

The Confetti Wishes Workshop on the Go is so much fun to put together. With the great Workshop on the Go for only $29.95 I was able to put together 2 two-page layouts and 2 birthday cards. I still have enough paper to create more cards or another layout. 

Interested in this kit and live in Spokane, join me Thursday March 19th and we will put this kit together. I cut out all Cricut cuts ahead of time. Here are the layouts I created:

Here are the cards:

Here is a picture of the kit:
