The other day I shared a card that had several Thin Cut heart cutouts. The insides of the hearts were just laying around on my craft table. I picked them up this morning and had an idea for another card. The colors fit with the Dreamin’ Big paper collection by Close To My Heart, so I grabbed my adhesives and went to work.
I used the retired Beyond Awesome stamp set for the sentiment, layered a zip strip over some black glitter paper and popped up a few of the hearts and the arrow. I love it when a project comes together so easily–makes me think I actually know what I’m doing!!

I was lucky enough to attend a crop last Saturday and I worked hard to finish some layouts that have been “in progress” for quite a while. And by quite a while, I mean a couple of years! Please tell me I’m not the only one this happens to…
Earlier I had made a couple of single page layouts with the retired Blossom and Jackson paper packs showing pictures of my grandson when he was about 13 months old. So I was determined to finish up these layouts this weekend. Well, I needed a bit of time at home too, especially since I’m making two of each layout–one for me and one for my son and his family, but here they are!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this blast from the Close To My Heart past! I had so much fun revisiting these old paper packs and it sure feels good to get these layouts completed–FINALLY!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Make it a great one! Laurie
Since Thin Cuts are 25% off this month at Close To My Heart, I’ve been making lots of cards with these awesome products. I shared several last week and today I’d like to show you one more. It’s super easy and I love that cute little fox!
It’s Baby Week at Bitten by the Bug 2! We are celebrating all things babies from cards to layouts and everything in between. And boy, do I have a baby to share! My new grandson was born on December 29 and here is one of my first scrapbook layouts to celebrate this new little sweetie.
I used retired Georgie paper from Close To My Heart along with Peacock, Canary and Juniper cardstock. The Cricut cuts are from Wild Card, Flower Market and Artbooking. On the right side of the layout I layered the coordinating Picture My Life cards behind the photos. The journaling block is another PML card.
Be sure to check out the other design team projects at Bitten by the Bug 2. Then make your own baby project and share with us for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by! Make this an AWESOME day! Laurie
Yesterday I shared a couple of cards I made with the “thanks” Thin Cut and today I’d like to show you another fun way to use your Thin Cuts. This time I used strips of Shimmer Trim to make a colorful and dramatic “hello” cut.
I used the whimsical Dreamin’ Big paper collection to make this card. The black mats make the colorful paper stand out even more. Black, Aqua, Gold and Red Shimmer Trim were chosen to coordinate with the colors in the paper.
I adhered layers of Shimmer Trim to a scrap of white cardstock, then positioned the Thin Cut over the strips and ran it through my Cuttlebug. The paper and Shimmer Trim were quite thick, so I had to run it back and forth several times. In the future I will put the Shimmer Trim strips on a piece of thin paper like vellum instead of cardstock.
The resulting cut is quite festive and fit nicely with the bright colors in the Dreamin’ Big paper. I’m sure I will use this technique again very soon!

Today I’m sharing a wedding card I made with the Thin Cut/stamp set called Hello Lovely Cardmaking Bundle from Close To My Heart. I challenged myself to only use two colors for this card–red and white. First I used the Thin Cuts and my Cuttlebug to cut out the shapes. Then I stamped the matching images in Versamark on Cranberry cardstock, sprinkled on white embossing and used my heat tool to melt the powder. This made the images quite crisp and clear on the red cardstock.
I adhered the stamped images onto a background of embossed hearts and added a red ribbon with white hearts as embellishment. I think this makes quite an elegant card for a wedding.
I’m excited to use this Hello Lovely Thin Cut/Stamp set again very soon! Check out a picture of the set below. The images outlined in blue are those with a matching Thin Cut. For more information or to purchase this awesome set, click HERE!

I am pleased to host the challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart. It’s a Black and White Tuxedo theme! I have always loved the simple elegance that a black and white color palette can give to a project and this was no exception. I created an all occasion card using the Hello Lovely Day to Day scrapbooking stamp set for the rose and leaves and the “hello” Thin Cut for my sentiment.
To embellish the Black and White Daisy cardstock card, I embossed the background panel with a vertical stripes embossing folder (now only available on Clearance), Black and White Shimmer Trim and cut the “hello” from black glitter paper.
Please take a look at the other stunning black and white projects created by the Heart 2 Heart Design team. Then join in the fun, create your own artwork and share with us! We really love to see what you all come up with!
