Pink Flamingo’s I Must Be In Florida

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Close To My Heart has the cutest Flamingo stamp set and coordinating thin cut set  called Tickled Pink.

So many people think of Florida when they see Flamingo’s so I think this stamp set was made just for me, since I am a Floridian 🙂

All different kind of greeting cards can be made with this Tickled Pink set, but also think of accents for scrapbook pages, party invitations and decorations…

And remember just because its called Tickled Pink does not mean you have to make them pink.  You can use any color ink that you want.  That’s the best thing about creating your own paper crafts 🙂

It is Officially Summer and Time to Craft

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Now that it is officially summer, and school is out, what kind of plans do you all have?  Hopefully crafting is on your list 🙂

I have been busy with lots of stuff lately, and I want to share with you some on my handmade greeting cards that I have been making.  This card I made for my mother-in-law for Mothers Day.


I think I told you already but just in case you missed it, My girlfriend Kim, is a Close To My Heart consultant and I ordered the Workshops On The Go, Blossom Cardmaking Kit.  I have always made cards from scratch, never from a kit, but let me tell you, this is AWESOME!

Everything that you need to make 15 cards is included.   Serious, all I needed was paper trimmer, stamp pad, acrylic block and adhesive.  And I have leftovers to make more 🙂

If you want to order this kit, please just click on this link and it will take you to Kim’s shopping page – Blosson Cardmaking Kit #G1095  Tell Kim I sent you 🙂

Happy Fall Ya’ll

Hello My Fellow Crafters.

Fall is my favorite time of year.  Pumpkins, scarecrows, beautiful colors of the leaves changing and the list can go on and on.  Today I want to share with you a fall handstamped/handmade greeting card that came out pretty darn cute 🙂


This Scarecrow was stamped on white cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink, colored with Copic sketch markers, then cut out using cutter-bee scissors.  I wanted some texture and dimension to this card so I decided to use  the Cuttlebug.   I took the two blue panels and put them into an embossing folder of a tree, so when the card is closed you can see the entire tree.

As cool as that looked it still needed “something” so using a paper punch of small leaf I punched out some leaves and used small dots for some dimension.  Then I found some 3D stickers in my stash of this birdhouse and bird, so thought that would be the perfect addition.  Still this card needed some more color so I cut two panels of colorful fall leaf cardstock.  Once I added those panels the colors of the scarecrow came to life.  Finished it off with some raffia and a wooden heart shaped button.

~ Happy Fall Ya’ll ~
