Superheroes – Craft Style

image

Recently I attended a weekend scrapbook crop with my friends aka ScrapBunnies.  The theme for the weekend was superheroes so we were Super ScrapBunnies – each with our own special crafting powers/abilities; techniques were deemed to be my strong suit. For our costumes we each created a chest plate to depict our special “powers”.

Above picture is of my finished project – how many of these techniques have you used in your papercrafting?

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.

Note card holder

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

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.
