Tidbit Tuesday

Recipe cards can be a meaningful addition to a layout. Copy a few of your favorite family recipes and add them to pages showing those recipes being enjoyed by friends and family.

Pens, pencils, and markers are tools you use all the time.  Keeping them handy and visible will eliminate any excuses not to journal.  Be sure to store your pens horizontally so that the ink flows smoothly.

Taste of Summer Blog Hop




Welcome to a special blog hop celebrating National Scrapbooking Month!  Close to my Heart is celebrating all month long by offering an exclusive new paper packet and stamp set called "Taste of Summer"!  This cute new paper pack features so many bright, cheery colors that just scream of summer and the coordinating stamp set is a must have for both scrappers and cardmakers.
You may be starting the hop here or coming from Wendy's blog.  Either way be sure to keep clicking  the links on each page so you can see all the great projects my fellow consultants have made.















The project I made to share with you is called a wiper card.  I love to make interactive cards.  It's fun to watch people play with them. 
In addition to the "Taste of Summer" paper and stamp set, I used:
Sunset cardstock, Taffy (Retired) cardstock, Sunset and Slate ink, green glitter paper and the thank you stamp is from D1616-Have a happy day. 
The card folds flat to 4 1/4 x 6 3/4 inches so, it fits nicely in a 5 x 7 envelope.
Here is a little video to show you how it works:

Enjoy the process of scrapbooking as much as the product.  Completing a layout or an entire scrapbook is very satisfying, but remember to relax and enjoy the journey along the way!

February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop



Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month blog hop. This month we are showcasing "A Happy Hello" a set of  15 stamps and have over 60 consultants participating for lots of inspiration!  If you are coming from Peachy's blog, you are on the right track. It's okay if you are starting here; just be sure to complete the circle so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects my fellow consultants have created.




For some reason when I looked at this stamp set the first thing that came to mind was a quilt. (I know crazy right!)  So I decided to make a card using the Log Cabin pattern from "Originals". I random stamped the various circles using the colors are from the "Brushed" color palette. The Cranberry cardstock was embossed with the new Vine embossing folder found in the Seasonal Supplement. 





Now hop along to Kelly's blog to enjoy more great artwork. If you get lost along the way, you can find the full list of bloggers here. Don't forget this set will only be available for the month of February. Contact your consultant or go here to order yours today!

Tidbit Tuesday

If you have the energy (and can still find your camera), take a picture of the mess right after a big event.  This part of the story is often overlooked, yet sometimes makes for telling photos.
