Stuff I have been working on and National Scrapbooking Month!

So, I do a display swap with some other really talented Close to My Heart consultants - every time we get a new catalog, each of us picks a paper pack, and makes a 2 page layout, a couple of cards, and usually a 3d object cut from the cricut Art Philosophy or the new Artiste cartridge - times 8!  Then, we trade so that we all end up with a display of each paper pack.  The paper pack I got this time was the new Pear & Partridge Christmas paper.  I love this paper!!!  I haven't finished my whole display, but I wanted to post what I have completed, so here they are:

2 page layout:
here's some close-ups:

 yes, that is hand stitching on the 2nd page!  It's so easy with the ruler from Close to My Heart - it's got holes in it that you can line up on your page and punch through with the piercing tool, and then sew!  So easy!

Here's the card - the ornament is gold embossed, and the ribbon is seam binding ribbon dyed with the new Champagne ink:

Please bear with me!  My camera is not cooperating very well right now!

Did you know that September is National Scrapbooking Month?  Well, to celebrate Close to My Heart has this GREAT double stamp set for only $5 with a $35 purchase!  This special runs from August 15 - September 30.

It is so cute!!  Contact me today to get yours!

Thanks for looking - and happy scrappin'!
