This week at Bitten by the Bug 2 we are celebrating BIRTHDAYS! I chose to get out my new Little Dreamer Paper and Cardmaking Thin Cuts bundle for the first time to make this cute birthday card for a little girl. I used the Artistry and Artbooking cartridges from Close To My Heart to make the birthday sentiment on the front of the card.
The card design is a center panel step fold and I found the directions on Pinterest. I thought the center panel would be the perfect way to feature that adorable unicorn! What little girl doesn’t love unicorns? Everyone needs birthday cards to have on hand, so here is your chance to replenish your supply! And while you’re at it, link up those cards at Bitten by the Bug 2 to share with everyone!
Thanks for stopping by today! Something WONDERFUL is about to happen!! Laurie
I know, I know! Sugar Rush is retired paper now and I should be making things with the new paper, but I just can’t seem to let it go! It’s just the cutest paper for whimsical birthday cards and paired with the cute donut Thin Cuts, what’s a girl to do but PLAY??
Here are two versions of a card using the same basic elements. One is horizontal and one is vertical. I know a couple of people who might be getting one of these cute cards for their upcoming birthdays!
Tomorrow I’ll be on to projects with the new Close To My Heart paper packs, I promise! Have a wonderful day! Laurie

This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges we are playing with the Whimsy Fundamentals collection! I decided to make a Mother’s Day card since that holiday always seems to sneak up on me! Besides Whimsy paper, I used several Thin Cuts–Hearts and “love” along with glitter paper and a sweet bow.
Check out the other design team projects using the Whimsy Fundamentals paper at Heart 2 Heart! You will be sure to find some great ideas. Then link up your own artwork because we love it when you share!!
Thanks for stopping by! Make today fabulous! Laurie
Today I’m sharing some quick and easy sympathy cards. I used the paper from last year’s National Scrapbook Month paper pack by Close To My Heart and an embossing folder I recently purchased from Joanne’s.
The stamp is from the CTMH Hello Lovely Cardmaking Bundle. I simply stamped the image on my cards, but it would have added even more interest if I would have used the coordinating Thin Cut first and then stamped the image. I could even have popped up the image with dimensional foam. Hmmm…might have to make a few more of these with the Thin Cut too!
The coral paper has gold embossing so I chose to heat emboss my stamped floral image to match. On the other card I simply chose coordinating cardstock and ink to match the Glacier print on the patterned paper. Using Close To My Heart products makes it so very easy to find the perfect match!
Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate you all very much!! Laurie
