Like cameras? How about vintage cameras? Well then, you are going to love Close To My Heart’s April Stamp of the Month—Life in Pictures!
This set of 13 images has a wonderfully classic feel to it with a variety of vintage style cameras and fun coordinating sentiments.
Recently, my kids’ class put on a production of Seussical Jr. They did an AMAZING job. It was impressive to see how the kids not only learned their own lines and songs, but those of the other characters, too!
Step one was deciding if they wanted to try out for one of the roles or to be part of the set design and/or creating the costumes. My son wanted to be Horton and my daughter wanted to be Mrs. Mayor. So they both did their tryouts and were selected for their chosen roles…yay!
Step two was deciding if they wanted the costume crew to create their costumes for them or if they wanted to do them on their own. They chose the latter. Now it was time to put on my thinking cap for the Horton costume. I felt doing Mrs. Mayor would be simple enough–just some bright clothes and a sash saying Mrs. Mayor would suffice.
One of the projects we created at this month’s Technique Time Class was this fun “Happy” Turkish Fold Card.
There’s a real simplicity to the card, but then when you open it up, it has a wonderful “wow” factor! Continue reading
What better way to start a Monday than with a super simple card design!?!
These cards, while designed to be perfect for Pocket Scrapbooking, also can make some ridiculously easy cards, too!
For this particular card, I simply cut out the card and adhered it to a card front leaving a slight 1/4″ border. Then I stamped a sentiment from the Hello Paradise Stamp Set in the corner of the card. That’s it! Easy peasy, right?

It’s the final few days to get your hands on this month’s Stamp of the Month—Sunshine Birdies.
This sweet little stamp set has such a fun whimsical feel to it–from the font of the sentiments to the cheerful birds and butterflies.
I used CTMH’s Cricut Art Philosophy to create the base to my card–I thought the scallop squares fit perfectly with the cute & whimsical feel of this card. The Art Philosophy Collection is such a powerful collection of basic shapes–you are only limited by your creativity with this particular Cricut cartridge!
For the inside I decided to do some creative folding for the wow factor and leave the sentiment as the focal point; simple and to the point.

Happy Easter! Before the day was over, I wanted to share the cute little Easter baskets I made for my kids this year. They are a twist on one I’ve created before but they turned out so super cute with this year’s *NEW* Spring Critters Stamp Set and coordinating Thin Cuts dies.
Look at how easy it is to get a nice image with the coordinating die for this stamp set–I’m so in love with these sets and can’t wait to see what new ones CTMH releases in their May Seasonal Expressions 2! Continue reading
