MOJO332 - Heart Sketch

Today's Mojo Monday sketch was inspiring! 

I have only made 1 Valentine card so far and now I think I can get a few done!

It was also a chance to play with my new Lollydoodle paper, which coordinates so well!

The heart and sentiment are heat-embossed. They are both from the October SOTM Scandinavian Wishes stamp set. I usually buy sets with more than one purpose in mind, although I have been known to search a set down for 1 use only for a special nephew or two! 

I do have a couple of Scandinavian Wishes sets available - just contact me if you are interested.

I used the gray dotted CTMH washi tape and some assorted buttons to finish it. A simply lovely card that was fun and fast to put together!

SPRING 2014 Idea Book

The Close To My Heart Spring Idea Book is released and has so-o-o many new and exciting products!

My sneak peek package arrived a couple of weeks ago, but alas, I was working an overtime project, had a scrapbook weekend and baby shower items to I am a little behind on product displays. Not ideal, but onward & forward!

I simply adore all of the new papers in this release!  And with that in mind,  check out this month's special!  


Buy TWO paper packs and get a new CTMH embossing folder FREE!  Check them out here!

 I LOVE the effect of dry-embossing, because it adds so much dimension to my projects.  I use the folders in my [ancient] Sizzix -- hey it works!

 The new folders are:

  • Dot
  • Chevron
  • Quatrefoil
  • Damask
  • Stripe

I will be posting my projects soon, so stay tuned!
