Come Get Crafty With Me!

April is an awesome month for joining the Close To My Heart family of crafters with an amazing opportunity to purchase a collection of products and receive a special bonus gift of a Cricut Cartridge -  together they are valued at over $500 but could be yours for just $130. What do you need to do? - just click here and place your obligation - you can take this wonderful collection of crafty goodies and simply play or you have 6 months to trial the joys of being a consultant - the choice is all yours!
....the most difficult decision will be to decide what cartridge to choose. I love, use and have all three!! - one of the benefits of being a consultant is that I get all my craft supplies at a discount! However, to help you with your decision making you might like to watch this fabulous video that showcases a little of what can be done with the Cricut Artbooking Collection
I am rather addicted to making paper flowers to embellishment my craft projects and after watching this video I have become addicted to using the overlay grids found on the Artbooking Cartridge too! - they are so much FUN!
This card was inspired by the video and was made entirely of scraps - including some cardstock off-cuts that I had previously embossed with the Dot Embossing Folder and a little Glitter Paper. My flowers and leaves were cut from the Cricut Artiste Collection and embellished with some Clear Sparkles - then just a few Aqua and Flamingo Dots were added as my finishing touch!
...and because these cards are so addictive and easy to make I thought I would share a couple more with you. I wish I was able to photograph this card a little better so you could see all the beautiful glossy accents in the Fundamentals Paper and the gorgeous "Free To Be Me" paper pack. The "Free To Be Me" papers are another good reason to join Close To My Heart this month - this pack is our exclusive National Scrapbook Day collection and can be purchased for only $5 with a qualifying order in April or May. It includes, decorative paper, printed vellum and glossy embossed cardstock and is ideal for a variety of papercraft projects.
This card shows how vibrant the "Free To Be Me" papers are and how they co-ordinate so well with other paper packs in our range. The feathers were hand cut from the decorative paper with my ever favourite Micro-Tip Scissors and matted with some Silver Glitter Paper. I also used a different overlay grid from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge to create this card - there are just so many possibilities!

If you would like more information about joining my Close To My Heart family or would like to place an order for the "Free To Be Me" paper pack just visit my Online Shop or contact me at
