A Gift of Thanks

I have a friend who always sends the nicest thank you notes for presents she receives.  She recently retired from her job so I decided to gift her with a set of thank you notes.

I used cardstock and B&T paper from the Brushed paper pack (retired), B1449 Oodles of Doodles stamp set and Z3024 White Shimmer Trim.

The set included 10 cards in total

 

 

 

 

The note card holder is from a design by Becky Roberts, 2010 12 Days of Christmas

Nevermore – Not Just For Halloween

Nevermore Paper Pack X7198B

Nevermore, one of the new paper packs featured in our Holiday Expressions 2015 idea book, lends itself easily to Halloween layouts and cards because of the colors and some of its paper patterns, but it’s very versatile and can be used in many different ways.

The colors in this pack will be great in any of your fall designs and also work well for masculine themed designs like this birthday card I recently made for my brother. Masculine Birthday a Card

Inspired by a design I found on Pinterest from classicchristina.blogspot.com, this card was originally made using the now retired Jackson paper pack and I really wanted to use some of our new products.  Along with the beautiful new Eggplant Cardstock, one of Nevermore’s B&T Duos™ designs includes mechanical drawings and since my brother is an engineer I just knew I had to use this paper for his card.  I combined it with papers from the Georgie and Basics Fundamentals Paper Packs, added some bling from the Sequins Silver Assortment and a small bow made from Whisper Thick Twine. I cut the star using CTMH’s Art Philosophy cartridge. The sentiment is from a retired Operation Smile set, Happy Everything, but could easily be swapped out with one of our current stamp sets such as Joyful Birthday B1419.

Where does the time go?

What a summer – it’s been too long since my last post and there’s quite a bit to share.  An incredible Alaskan vacation (pictures of which I’m sure you’ll see in future artwork posts), fun crops with my Scrapbunny friends and always a good breakfast with the OVOBC crowd.  But I’m not the only one keeping busy, the Close To My Heart team has been getting ready for the release of our new Annual Inspirations idea book – coming September 1st – and all the wonderful new products.  New is exciting but sometimes we’re not quite ready to let go of the familiar.  If that applies to you, you may want to click over to my website and check out the list of items retiring at the end of August.  Included on the list are some tried and true colors that are part of our Enchantment collection.

Retiring 8-31-15
Indian Corn Blue, Autumn Terracotta, Olive, Outdoor Denim, Smokey Plum and Barn Red.

Most of these colors have been part of the CTMH lineup for as long as I’ve been scrapbooking and have earned their retirement.  Contact me or visit my website to replenish your cardstock, stamps and re-inkers in your favorite colors before they’re gone.
