Adornit Blog Hop

Welcome to the Adornit Blog Hop. If you missed the beginning of the hop, head over to the beginning of the hop and follow the links.

I decided to make a card for the blog hop since I am on vacation and 12 hours away from all of my scrap things. I ran to the local Hobby Lobby and purchased the items I needed to make this card (since I left my supplies in my husbands car at the Philly airport) oops.

I decided that with all the rain we have been having I would purchase this stamp. I had to use some markers that my mom had here, make due with what she has.

Your next stop on the blog hop is Lisa Day.

I guess better late than never to start a card challenge. This is my first ever challenge. I really hope to be able to stay on top of it.

This weeks was a double challenge. The first part is the sketch. The second part is to use 1 colored cardstock (I don't count your image if it's on white), 2 stamps, 2 embellishments, and 5 pieces of paper. I tried to follow the rules!

Supplies used:

Copic Markers
Whiff of Joy Lizzie & Herb stamp
Making Memories flower & brad
Breezy Design patterned paper
Sentiment is from SU Best Yet set
Cardstock is SU.

I hope you like my card.

Wedding Album

I recently finished this wedding album for a wedding that we are going to tomorrow. I gave the album to the bride 2 weeks ago at her shower and she loves it.

It took me a long time to make this album and I bought a lot of wedding things. I still have a lot of supplies left in the craft room. Perhaps I will make another wedding sometime.

HUGE Online Clearance Sale!

It is that time of year again. Close to my Heart is having their online clearance sale starting Monday morning at 7:00 am (PST) and everything will go fast!

A host of new discounted items will be available on my website including stamp sets, favorite paper packets, accessories, and more! There will be a little of something for everyone at a phenomenal 40% off retail pricing!

If any of you remember the last time CTMH released discontinued and discounted items on our websites, there was a frenzy right at 7am and many of the great products were gone within the hour. So, if you are interested in seeing what is available at these great prices, I suggest visiting my website right at 7am on Monday morning so you don't miss out.

Here is another tip to make your online shopping experience a little easier. With the site upgrade last month, we can now store your account information for you. (No need to re-enter your contact info each time you shop. Plus you will be able to look up all of the items you have previously ordered.) Because you need to set up your account the first time you shop, I suggest going to my site before Monday and setting up an account so that it is all ready for you when you hop on at 7am Monday morning. (This way you won't waste any valuable time setting up your account on Monday.)

Another note about my website—if you have the site bookmarked on your computer, you will need to delete it, type in “” and then re-bookmark the site again. For some reason the old links and bookmarks don't work anymore.

Happy Shopping!

JINGLE books

I made the following books as gifts for the grandparents and great-grandparents.

I got these wonderful books from Top-Line Creations last year with hopes of making them then but did not get around to it. Better late than never.

Happy 4th

I spent yesterday shopping and then making a birthday card.

The girls went over to a friends house so we only had Noah for the day and then the night. We drove over to New Jersey and went shopping. Once we got in I came to the basement to make a card. This card needs to go out today so it gets to the recipient in time.

Hope you like.

All products are CTMH. Bubblegum and white daisy cardstock. Dutch blue patterned paper. Bubblegum and sweet leaf ink. Sunny yellow brad and ribbon. With Love stamp set.
