I created this beautiful card for my husband for our anniversary. I chose to use purples and golds as those were the colors we had at our wedding.
The Foil Polka Dot Paper as well as the two pennants (the Rose and Foil Stripe) are all from this month’s Live Beautifully Collection. It’s awesome how easily they work with other papers to create a stunning finished product.
But don’t forget this paper collection is only available for another 5 days. You can get your own Live Beautifully Paper Collection on MY ONLINE CTMH STORE.
Here’s a list of the supplies I used to create this card:
Live Beautifully Stamp Set (CC1212C)
Black Stamp Pad (Z2805)
White Daisy Cardstock (1385)
Black Cardstock (1386)
Live Beautifully Paper Pack (CC1212B)
Black Shimmer Trim (Z1809)
Little Dreamer Glitter Gems (Z3321)
3-D Foam Tape (Z1151)
There’s only 1 week left to grab your choice of CTMH’s exclusive Live Beautifully products in celebration of National Scrapbooking Month. You can see more about all the Live Beautifully options in my BLOG POST earlier this month.
May is National Scrapbooking Month. The perfect time to either host or attend a scrapbooking crop! For the last several years, I’ve hosted a crop with some other CTMH Consultants both in November (a great time to prepare holiday cards and/or get a jump start on your holiday layouts) and one in May. This May was no different.
While our group was smaller this time, we had an amazing time together. I think it may have been one of my favorites to date in fact! I found some fun glitter straw cups at my local Dollar Tree (pretty much bought them out!) and thought these would be perfect to decorate with some vinyl and give to each attendee. I used CTMH’s Cricut Artistry Collection for this fun “Scrap Happy” sentiment. I cut it out in both a Teal and Silver Metallic Vinyl. I really love how they turned out; so did the attendees! It was awesome seeing the ladies use their cups all day. =)
I also made up some Bingo cards for those who wanted to give themselves a focus/challenge throughout the day. It was completely optional, but I think everyone played in some capacity.
And to help everyone out, I gave each attendee a little container full of most of the items that they needed for their Bingo card. All they needed to do was figure out how they could use the items on their projects to mark off that square!
If you missed joining us this past weekend, never fear, another Crop will be coming your way in November!
And if you can’t wait for a fun event, join us for our Paper Party next month–Saturday, June 10th! We’ll be creating cards, boxes and gift card holders all with the *NEW* CTMH Papers from the recently released Seasonal Expressions 2 Catalog.
For more information about our Paper Party, see my list of CTMH Events.
Just because Close To My Heart is offering gorgeous exclusive papers in honor of National Scrapbooking Month doesn’t mean you can’t use these papers to create cards instead of scrapbook layouts!
I created this “smile” card using 2 of the 14 patterned papers contained in the Live Beautifully Paper Collection. Each one of the designs in this paper pack are so beautiful. Plus, as usual with CTMH paper packs, they all coordinate so beautifully together.
I also used the “smile” sentiment contained in the coordinating Live Beautifully Stamp Set. Since I was using the Gold Foil Polka Dot paper, I decided to emboss the sentiment in gold. I love the font and the sentiments contained in this set!
The final touch–to tie it all together–was to add our Gold Foil Tape. This stuff is amazingly easy to use and so inexpensive for the amount of it you receive. Plus, it not only comes in gold, but silver and rose gold, too!
Celebrate National Scrapbooking Month with the Live Beautifully collectionfrom Close To My Heart. This month only, get your hands on the Live Beautifully paper packet with gold foil accents and lush floral designs, the coordinating Live Beautifully stamp set, and a Cut Above® layout kit for quickly and easily creating five incredible 2-page layouts.
