A Happy Birthday Card Idea Using Close To My Heart Products

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Hope you all had a great week and are done eating all the Halloween candy from last weekend 🙂

This week I have been busy creating birthday cards for my sister-in-law and also my nephew.  I will share that one with you next week.

So today I want to share with you my sister-in-laws card that I created using the  So Many Smiles  stamp set and also the happy birthday stamp sentiment from The Cricut Artfully Sent Collection .

I just love how all the papers and inks all coordinate together perfectly, and if you have a Cricut cutting machine and use this set from the Cricut Collection, it really makes creating cards and scrapbook pages so super easy, and it looks perfect too!

Well that’s it for today ~ Hope you all have a great weekend 🙂

~ Happy Birthday Fran ~

So Many Smiles Stamp Set ~ Close To My Heart

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Have you ever had a week that went by so quickly?  Well that was my week.  I can’t believe that it is Friday already.

I have been having so much fun creating cards with all of the Close To My Heart products that I received in my new consultant kit.

The funny thing about todays stamp set is that I had it on my wish list before I joined and it ended up being in the consultant kit which put a Big Smile on my face 🙂


There are so many things that you can do with this So Many Smiles stamp set – it comes with 12 stamps, and you can make flowers or just totally abstract design with these fun circles.

A great thing to know is that on the clear sheet that the stamps are attached to, shows the size of each circle.  You may be saying so what’s so great about that. Well I will tell you.

*If you have a Cricut machine and the Close To My Heart exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, you can cut out the images perfectly and then stamp.

*BUT if you don’t have the cartridge and you do have some circle paper punches you are in luck.  All you would need is four circle punches in size 3/4″, 1″, 1 1/2″, and 2 1/4″ and you have all the circles needed.

And if you have a pair of scissors you can cut them all out by hand which is really easy plus really gives your card the handmade look.

Hope you enjoyed my card today ~ Have a Wonderful weekend 🙂

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!
