Pocket Card

A friend sent this Double Pocket Card tutorial to me today and I loved the idea so headed straight to my craft room to make my own. This is my first try and I'm very happy with the results:


I used some card stock I had in my stash, a few cuts with the Cricut Artiste Cartridge, added a little stamping and some ribbon along with some paper trimmings. This was so much fun!

Don't forget - all paper packs in the current Idea Book are being discontinued as of July 31! 
Get your favorites while you can!

A Little Skylark on the Go

Last night, during my usual Tuesday evening scrapbooking time, I created 2 complete layouts using the Skylark Workshop on the Go. I had a great time putting it all together! Skylark is only available through July 31, then it will be retired, so get it while you can! 



Layout #1 is creative, lively and full of fun.


I love the built-in details in this Workshop on the Go!


Easy stamping make it even more interesting and fun. The Whisper paper at the bottom is stamped!


Layout #2 is equally fun and charming!


The stamping detail and embellishments give this layout a quick, easy start and finish!


Love, Love, Love the flowers and twist ties that come with this Workshop!


Happy Scrappin'!

What Can You Emboss?

I've been having some fun today with Close to My Heart's new Embossing Folders! We are spending this holiday at home, not forgetting those who fought for our freedom to enjoy at day at home. Because there's no school at our house today, I've had some time to craft in between baking (home made hamburger rolls) and cooking (deviled eggs) and cleaning up after myself. I've been using up the remainder of the papers in the Free To Be Me paper pack, available for $5.00 with a qualifying purchase through May 31. While I was at it, I decided to use our Chevron Embossing Folder on a few of the cards I was making.

This Free To Be Me paper pack is awesome! First of all, I made a 5-page set of layouts, featured here, and had so much left over that I decided to make some cards. I made a dozen in the time I had, and I still have paper left! How great is that?


I used the Chevron Embossing Folder......


In my Cuttlebug......


And got this great result.....


I went on to make a dozen cards, a couple of them embossed (can you pick out the embossed cards?), with the leftover paper I had from the 


This great paper pack is only $5.00 with any $50.00 purchase through the month of May! 
Only a few more days left! Get it while you can!

Happy crafting!
