Share The Love...

I cannot express how Proud I am to work for a company with a Heart for others!  Each year Close To My Heart Partners with Operation Smile to change the lives of Children Around the World and I couldn't be happier to share this month's promotion with you.

With CTMH's "Share The Love" promotion, $7 of each stamp set will go directly to Operation Smile!  You can find complete details on this this promotion on my website, here.  Who wouldn't want to add this D-Sized Stamp Set to their personal collection?  It's a win win for everyone!

Happy Creating!

Everything ABC's Blog Hop Letter D...

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

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

If you came here from  Wendy Kessler at My Scrapbooking Blog then you're right on track!

The first thing that came to my mind when I thought of the Letter D was "Delightful" and what is more "Delightful" than this month's Stamp Of The Month "Balloon Animals" :)

Playful, Fun and Versatile...making a sweet addition to an Invitation, Birthday or Baby Shower card.  I created this set of four cards using a variety of coordinating colors along with our My Reflections Kaleidoscope Paper Pack.  Hope this designs give you a little Inspiration to CRAFT Something FUN!

For this project I used the following Close To My Heart Products...

My Reflections Kaleidoscope Paper Pack X7202B
My Acrylics Stamp Set Balloon Animals S1602 (Stamp Of The Month February 2016)
My Exclusive Inks
  Pacifica Z2192
  Pear Z2197
  Canary Z2643
  Sunset Z2191
  Glacier Z2641
Adventure Cardstock Combo X5935

This month I am focusing on Valentine's Day since we are celebrating a month of LOVE :)  Here's a quick little 6X6 Mini Album I made using a combination of Close To My Hearts Artbooking and Artiste Cricut Collections along with the La Vie En Rose Paper Pack.

Here's a closer look at each layout.  I love how the base came together!  Plenty of room for pictures journaling and embellishments.  Now comes the FUN part adding my photos and personal touches :)  Enjoy...
