Charlotte Card Set

Here are few more creations using the Charlotte paper collection.  The colors in the collection are sweet and girly.  The collection reminds me of springtime.  Fortunately, our weather has warmed up a bit since my last post.  We were in the 50's yesterday and it looks like low 60's next week.  You won't hear any more complaining from me. I know winter is still hanging around out there, but it is nice to catch a break for a few days.

I hope you enjoy these creations.

Happy Crafting!

Fundamentals Fun

It is the beginning of February and I am starting to feel the winter blues.  I am over the cold days and it is that time to start dreaming  about Spring.  I just read that infamous groundhog didn't cast a shadow this year, so I guess there is hope.

Even if the sun refuses to shine most days here in Idaho, I decided to take things in my own hands and find some sunshine in my craft room.

The Paper Fundamentals from Close to My Heart was a perfect choice to brighten my day.  There are so many colors and patterns to choose from this paper line.  One side of the paper has a pretty pattern and the other side of the paper is a solid color with a glossy finish.  I think it was the perfect combination to make these fun and vibrant cards.

I used the new Springtime Wishes Thincuts set and the Springtime Wishes stamp set to create the flowers and leaves.  Thincuts use your embossing/die cutting machine to cut out coordinating stamp shapes. When you see an outline of blue around certain CTMH stamps--there is a coordinating Thincut.  This makes it nice when you want to make a project, but don't have time to bring out your Cricut machine.

If you are in the Boise area and would like to make a set of cards for yourself, I will be teaching this class in March.  All of the details and signup information can be found on my Meetup page at the following link:
