Sweet Life Cards

 As the end of the month is fast approaching I wanted to share some of the cards I made with Close To My Heart's July Stamp of the Month called Sweet Life. I love this stamp set, it has the sweetest sentiments and the images are such fun to colour in. If you struggle with shading and light sources when you colour - then this is a perfect set for you, the art work has really defined areas of shadows and shading making you the master of your markers in no time! This set is only available until the end of July and is yours for $5 when you spend $75 or more in my online shop - that is a saving of about 80% - a very sweet deal indeed! ....and while we are talking all things sweet, don't forget to check back in August when the Stamp of the Month is "A Chocolate Affair" - there are 8 yummy images for papercraft projects in that set and I know it is another one, you will want in your collection!

If you are attending any of my upcoming Inspiring Idea Events then you will get to see these cards in real life along with a few other goodies I made with this set....look forward to seeing you then

Rediscover Happy the current tag line from Close To My Heart and it made me think of the things that make me happy, especially when times are tough..... and you guessed it, I am the happiest I can possibly be, when I am tucked away in my scrapping space ( aptly called the Happy Room ). I enjoy nothing more than working on my memory albums, creating personalised cards and getting my hands dirty with ink, adhesive and a touch of glitter. Papercraft is literally my happy place and if I go too long without crafting, I go through withdrawls.....can you relate to that? If so, why don't you consider joining my Close To My Heart team and we can be Happy together. As a Close To My Heart Consultant you will enjoy something that is often elusive in the working world - flexibility! - besides being paid for doing what you love, you are your own boss.

You also receive discounts on the products you personally love and have an amazing opportunity to touch hearts and change lives through your joy of scrapbooking and stamping.
