Retirement Party!!

Don't miss out on the items you really need in your life that will be retiring July 31st.

Click here for Retiring Items .

My favorite paper pack in the Spring/Summer Idea book is Jubilee . I participated in the Pacemakers Flip Flop Challenge at Convention which was to decorate a pair of Flip Flops with Close To My Heart items.  This was made with the Jubilee Textiles cut in strips and tied around the straps. The center was cut from the Artiste Cartridge . These other items are included in the collection:
  • 1 – Cartridge (700 images: themed projects, cards, fonts, shapes, and 3-D items)
  • 3 – My Acrylix™ D-size stamp sets
  • 3 – 12" × 9" Dimensional Elements (3 sheets of different shapes)
I attached the center cuts with Liquid Glass and with some coordinating inks and stamping, this project turned out to be so fun!  I was so happy and proud when the judging was finished and these funky Flip Flops won Most Pretty!


There are so many possibilities with Close To My Heart.  It's not just for scrapbooking.  It's Paper Crafting Art!

Check out my website to see ideas and projects that are so fun to create.  You don't want to miss out on the Retiring Items.

July Color Challenge for The Rose Blossom Team

So love a challenge and this one was to use ONLY.....Indian Corn Blue, Honey, Cranberry & White Daisy.  It was certainly a challenge but with a couple stamp sets and the Cricut it was a breeze.

I used the new stamp available in August called A Budding Friendship and the sentiment was a new stamp as well...Happy Birds.  The flowers were cut on the Cricut using the Artiste Cartridge. You will love the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book.  So many beautiful layouts and projects.  Watch for all the new things coming can order beginning in August!
Thanks for stopping by the Playground.  See you soon!
