Hello everyone – Vicki Wizniuk here! Today I am sharing a few cards I created using the new Prickly Pear papers from Close to My Heart! I love the fresh and funky colour palette in this pack. For my first card, I paired the Prickly Pear papers with the Prickly Pear Cardmaking stamp set.  I love that these new stamp sets have matching Thin Cuts dies, making creating even that much easier! To add colour the stamped and die-cut cactus, I used my inks and small waterbrush to simply paint the colours on. Tip:  I like to use Black Memento ink to stamp the image, as it dries quickly and it doesn’t “bleed” when I use my waterbrush to add the colours. I added a few sequins from the Prickly Pear Sequins pack.  I love how easily you can combine everything just by going by the name of the product…

Hello from Vicki Wizniuk! Today I am sharing a single page layout I created using the Rustic Home Fundamentals papers from Close to My Heart! I seriously am in love with how versatile these papers are.  They are very masculine, but can also be used for a more feminine project. This layout features just a couple of the patterned papers from this fabulous paper packet, plus I added some embellishments from the My Boy Complements.  The perfect pairing!  And the black gems are from the Black & White Dots pack.  I kept my layout quite simple, to give you an example of how you can create quick layouts with few supplies. If you don’t have a copy of the Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations catalog or the Seasonal Expressions 1 (mini catalog), be sure to contact your local CTMH Independent Consultant.  Or if you don’t have a Consultant and…

Hello!  Today I am sharing a single page layout I created using the new Sugar Rush Paper Packet from Close to My Heart!  The main theme of Sugar Rush is donuts and ice cream, so it is full of super sweet patterned papers.    Yummy! I added the title and embellishments to my layout using the Sugar Rush Complements, and Sugar Rush Dots. I also used a black journal pen to draw lines around the perimeter of the photo mats and on anything I wanted to have my eye drawn to on the page. If you don’t have a copy of the Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations catalog or the new Seasonal Expressions (mini catalog), be sure to contact your local CTMH Independent Consultant.  Or if you don’t have a Consultant and you live in Canada, let me know and I will get one to you!  I would love to…

Hello!  Today I am sharing a mini album I created by repurposing the Happy, Happy Christmas My Crush pages from Close to My Heart! The Happy, Happy Christmas My Crush pages come in a package of 30 double-sided, loose printed pages, and 3-ring hole punched, measuring 8 3/8” x 6 7/8”.  They are designed to be used in the Everyday Life albums so you can whip up a quick album, but I wanted to change it up a bit…. check out my 6”x6” mini album. I added embellishments to my mini album from the City Sidewalks Complements, and a few Clear Sparkles here and there, and added colour to some of the Clear Sparkles using green and red ShinHan Touch Twin markers. What a fun way to create something completely unique! Well, that is it for me for today.  If you don’t have a copy of the new Close To…

Today I am sharing some items I made using the new Jeepers Creepers paper packet from Close To My Heart! I happened to have recently purchased a pencil that came in a little test tube style container from Staples, an office supply store.  Part of the proceeds from these pencils go towards “Me To We” (formerly known as Free The Children), which was a program my son got involved in a couple of years ago through the middle school he was attending at the time. Anyways, back to a closer look at my little project… Cute, right?  The test tube could be filled with little candies, too.  And don’t you just love the little bats?  I cut them out using Black Glitter Paper and the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, both from Close To My Heart.  For the test tube holder, I found instructions to make it here at Splitcoaststampers:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/testtubeholder/ The…

Today we are glad to welcome guest blogger Vicki Wizniuk from British Columbia, Canada to share some Close to my Heart goodness! I am so excited to share with all of you some fabulous quick cards I created using just some of new products just released this month from Close To My Heart! I got to play with their new Thin Cuts dies, as well as papers from their new Rustic Home Fundamentals. And I can’t forget to mention that they have a new Color of the Year, this year it is Sea Glass! All of these items truly make my heart happy. ♥ Here’s a better look at the cards individually… I seriously love those cards.  But I can’t let you go that quickly… I have one more beauty of a project using basically the same supplies, but I added a few additional items.  I made this lovely…
