A Piece Of Cake

A piece of cake stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites:)
For this months project I have decided to make a box full of goodies great to give as a gift or keep for yourself!
the box came from a Local craft store (chipboard), I used left over Jingle paper for the cards and the box (not only for Christmas), my BIA to create a mini album and Martha Stewart punches to embellish the cards and box all other products CTMH

On to my project...

Sweet cupcakes for you~ 1st design card for the box

A sweet Birthday

I love cupcakes as you well know I do not need an excuse to eat them:) however this past Monday was my Mom's birthday and you ask how did we celebrate? With Cupcakes! and this cute card that I made using CTMH products! I love how it turned out I used a template from our how to book "wishes" it is like a file folder with a card inside you really do not even need an envelope! I may come up with a workshop in the future using this template!

Baby Girl shower

How sweet are baby showers, little ones coming to fill our lives with love, joy and happiness! I have a baby shower to go to tonight after much thought I decided to make her a mini album that will feature her baby each month for the next year! I think she will like it since she is a scrapbooker! I created the first two pages for her birth the first page will document name, date, weight, length and description the next page is a newborn picture, then each page after will represent 1 month until she is 1 year old! I used the new stamp set Love you forever (in the new idea book) Enjoy looking at the pictures!

Cupcake Stamper Workshops!

Wow That sounds like lots of fun getting started~
I have decided to start my very own club of sorts it will be the Cupcake stamper I wish card workshop featuring Jeanette Lynton's how to book called "Wishes"

I am still working on all the final details but how does this sound so far?

a club will consist of 6 members- each of which will make a minimum order of $25.00 one month in the 6 total they will get the chance to be a hostess (without the stress)
they will get to make 4 cards per club making a total of 24 cards, We will meet in April, May, June, July, August, and in September! As long as you make your minimum purchase you will receive the projects pre cut and ready for you to assemble if you can not make it to club night!
Here is an example of a workshop featuring caboodle paper, sweet leaf, and sorbet for the colors and different stamp sets
( what is included in the workshop: Paper, stamps, inks, adhesive, samples, you provide the creativity and the embellishments)

Project 365

Wow I can not believe it is already the 5th day of January 2010 wow! I have decided to give this project a go again this year! I tried last year and made it to February I was doing good until I missed a couple days photos then our power went out for nearly 2 weeks yeah not fun and nothing to photo so I got discouraged. Also I had not printed any of my photos to even begin scrapping them, so really I do not think I really did the project last year but this is the year to do it!

Are you considering doing project 365?
Well I will give you my plan and give you some encouragement!
My goals
-take 1 photo per day (7 days per week)
-do not get frustrated when I miss a photo just keep going
- print photos on a regular basis
- have one specific day and time to scrap that weeks photos
- do 7 different photos each week example(Weather, lunch, dinner, activity, family member, thing in the house, what is on TV or PC)

I think this year is going to be a good one to scrap and document the year hey it is a new decade! A lot is going on in the world! I can not wait till the end to look back on this and see what an accomplishment it truly is! I am trying to be better at blogging especially now with my new business Close to My Heart Stamping and Scrapbooking! I want to make a weekly post regarding the P365 pictures journals the ups and downs of the commitment new ways to complete goals new layouts and more! So please check back often and see what is going on in the PROJECT!

Veranda card workshop

A Thank you card great for friends, or family, simple enough to make in a flash yet embellished to make it look great!
This one uses the exclusive stamp set that comes with the WOTG set Veranda paper, filigree charms!

This next card uses the exclusive stamp set that comes with the WOTG to make a pretty flower, a just blooms white flower inked with buttercup, and a filigree charm for the center of the flower so easy yet so sweet!

This card uses the same stamp set to make a flower out of single petal stamp with a just blooms white flower for the outer part of the flower filigree charm for the middle

These are so fun to do I used veranda WOTG kit available directly through CTMH and their independent consultants it includes everything you need to create a card kit and scrapbook layouts add some extras and you can spread your WOTG out to make several projects!

These cards speak SPRING which needs to hurry up and get here! IT is in the low 20s upper teens today I am sure that it is colder other places I am just tired of the WINTER:( The hummingbirds, flowers, and colors of this set is a must have!

Happy Stamping!
