Gone Fishing Layout

I had fun playing today with the Close to My Heart Paper Fundamentals today. I love how the paper provides texture and patterned. I used the Honey and Pacific along with the Honey Washi Tape to create this "Gone Fishing" layout!

The Washi Tape is retiring at the end of August from Close to My Heart so get yours today before it is gone.

Happy Card

Coloring has been my new stress reliever since I went back to work full-time. The Botanical Background Stamp is my new favorite stamp to use with the ShinHan markers. The Botanical Background stamp has 3 different stamps to create backgrounds. This is one of them and I will showcase the other 2 stamps in the set in the coming weeks. 

The "Happy" on this card is from the Finding the Words stamp along with Teal Shimmer Trim

All supplies for this card can be ordered here

June's Stamp of the Month "Ice Cream Dream" may be my favorite stamp of the month in this entire Idea Book. It is so versatile and so much fun to color with the Shin Han markers available from CTMH. I also used the Blossom paper pack along with Glacier Extra Thick Twine. The best part is this stamp set is available for only $5 with any $50 purchase from Close to My Heart

Jackson Workshop on the Go

The Workshops on the Go offered by Close to My Heart are so versastile and such a great deal. Every WOTG includes a paper pack, extra cardstock, stamp set, 2 embellishment sets and directions. The Jackson WOTG includes great embellishments and a fabulous stamp set. My scrap group didn't care for all the hexagons so I designed this layout using the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge and Cricut Craftroom. 

The second layout recommended in the WOTG comes from the Reflection How To Book:

For this layout I also used the Campfire Style stamp set to create the title and small stamping figures.

All of these supplies can be ordered here.
