A Whole Lotta Craftin' Going On
Hello, everyone! So I am spending a little time crafting on this beautiful afternoon. What's not to love? The sun is shining, it's in the low 80s here today, my scrappin' kitty, Ella, is by my side
and I have NEW paper to play with!!!! What gets better than that? Back to the NEW paper. Close To My Heart will be running a special in May for customers but I wanted to give you all a sneak peak. We have an exclusive paper pack called "Dream Pop" that has a total of 24 sheets of paper: 12 pieces of cardstock and 12 pieces of B&T Duos. The colors in this pack are very bright...colors like tangerine, raspberry, mint, and banana yellow to name a few. Take a look as some of the patterns.
so I started creating and so far I designed a couple of cards. Here is the first one..
With the help of some baker's twine, pop dots, April's stamp of the month from CTMH, and my Cricut Artiste cartridge, I was able to create this and easily at that. Notice the textured dots on the cardstock! One side of the cardstock has this texture and the other side is plain. So you choose if you would like the to add some "POP" to your project or not. Take a look at another design...
The hearts were cut out using Artiste and again, notice the texture to the cardstock :). Now instead of using basic envelopes to package these, I decided to use CTMH's glassine treat sacks.
So that is your teaser...stay tuned as it gets closer to the time where you can buy this paper yourself for more ideas. Until then, happy crafting!
