Today I wanted to share an awesome product from Close To My Heart–the Father’s Day Workshop Your Way Cardmaking Kit! This kit includes paper, card bases and envelopes, embellishments and an exclusive stamp set that allows you to make 12 complete cards! These cards are perfect for Father’s Day, but by changing up the sentiments, they would work for birthdays and other events as well. Plus, people always seem to need more masculine themed cards, so you just can’t go wrong with this awesome kit!
Here is one of the card designs from the downloadable workshop guide that you can make with this kit.
And here is a card I made that is based on the above design. My card is the larger A7 size (5×6.5 inches) and I added a shimmer trim border across the top of the banners instead of the twine. I also changed out the sentiment to make this a Father’s Day card, but it could easily be a birthday card too.
One of the best things about this Cardmaking Kit is the exclusive stamp set! If you know anything about me, I tend to use the word “awesome” a lot, so I LOVE this sentiment for the inside of my card! It will be great for many other cards too.
If you would like to purchase this versatile Workshop Your Way Father’s Day Cardmaking Kit or any other Close To My Heart products, you can shop at my online shopping site HERE. There’s still plenty of time to get your kit before Father’s Day!
Do something AWESOME today! Laurie
The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to use an INSECT cut on your projects. Well, I have recently been playing with the Dreamin’ Big papers from Close To My Heart and it has a cute bug print paper, so that was my inspiration! There is a Thin Cut/Stamp set that goes with this paper, but I wasn’t able to purchase one before they sold out, so I went to my old friend, Design Space instead! And there are a lot of bugs on Design Space, let me tell you!
I chose insects from Garden Soup, Dinosaur Tracks and Potions and Spells to crawl up the side of my layout. I think they go great with the papers and the “totally boy” photos of my grandson. All the other embellishments are from the Dreamin’ Big Complements package. Unfortunately, this collection retired on April 30 and is no longer available.
For the right side of the layout, I chose flowers and the “explore” title to go with the photo of my grandson examining some early spring flowers. He seems to enjoy flowers as much as his grandma!
Stop over to Bitten by the Bug 2 and see the other design team projects with INSECT cuts! Then help us celebrate spring by sharing your own “buggy” projects!
Thanks for stopping by–make today awesome!! Laurie
A few months ago when I was in Florida with my son and his family, my three year old grandson discovered a big stick in the yard after a storm. He had such a good time poking and prodding and reaching with that stick. I took a few candid shots of his investigations and decided that the Dreamin’ Big paper by Close To My Heart would be the perfect paper to use to scrapbook these cute photos.
A series of paper strips of various widths provides the background for the photos. Using the black background really sets off all the colors of the papers and photos. I also used a couple of the Picture My Life cards included in the paper collection as well as some of the Dreamin’ Big Complements.
It’s so easy to create with Close To My Heart papers and coordinating embellishments since all the colors and styles fit together seamlessly. There’s no searching through my stash anymore to try to find papers and embellishments that may or may not fit together. CTMH makes my crafting so much easier!!
The Dreamin’ Big paper collection will retire in just a couple of days so don’t miss out on this wonderful paper pack suitable for so many events and situations. Shop HERE to get all of your CTMH goodies! Thanks very much! Laurie
