Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s Featured collection True Love Paper Suite.
Don’t just think of this paper suite for Weddings, while its colour scheme & cut out icons are perfect for weddings, you will note that there are a tonne of colours & patterns that would suite a wide variety of themes.
My first card features two stamped icons from the Then & Now which is part of June The Best Moments Are Free promotion. I love how well this bird & ornate border works with the True Love Paper Suite. I only used paper scraps to create the card, using the smallest rectangle stitched frames as the main piece.
My second card I had a little fun with overlaying paper scraps to create this fun Birthday Parade scene. I love how little paper can be used to change a whole look of a card & be really simple design.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s Featured collection Sweet Girl Paper Suite.
This collection has a very pretty soft colour palette but I love how it incorporates green & sapphire & mink (light gray) which you can use for males too.
My first creation is this punny card I thought I would do a bit of peek a boo of the papers to create something fun. I used a circle thin cut to cut out the windows & backed it with some of the Sweet Girls papers.
My next creation is a scrapbook layout created for the new 8½” x 11″ Memory Protectors™, I love this new format to create something different to add into the main 12″ x 12″ albums. This layout is based on the “Hourglass Figure” trend that is popular in scrapbooking at the moment, which draws the eye to the photo (still to be printed), which will be an Easter Photo which will go perfectly with the title Yum.
Feels Like home has a lovely shabby/country chic look & features the colours of Black, Charcoal, Mink, Sugarplum, Fern, New England Ivy & Sapphire.
I love this paper suite & had fun creating this scrapbook layout which involves layering of Feels Like Home Watercolor Die-cuts with fussy cut out flowers, leaves & a couple of butterflies from the pattern paper.
I love the layers of pattern paper that is used to build up the layout & how even aa scrap of white scallop embossed card all tie well into focusing to the photo area.
I love the touch of Sapphire elements introduced to the layout with some stamped elements & even a tiny bit of washi tape which is actually from So Much Happy. There is a enough room under the photo area to add strip journalling once I choose the photo to go on the layout.

It doesn’t matter if you into the dry embossing or wet embossing techniques, both add texture & a little dimension to your artwork creations.
With my card today I embossed the white cardstock & the little chipboard arrow under the boat.
I love that you can emboss cardstock or chipboard easily.
And well because I had time before this blog went live this morning I quickly made this card. I embossed in gold the Love blossoms & coloured the back in Shin Han Markers & cut the flower out & attached with some glue dots to a white dry embossed cardstock & added a sticker from the So Much Happy Compliments.
I’d love for you to leave a comment before you head on over to Katy Taylor to get more ideas on how you too can Emboss It
I hope you enjoyed what I created, as much as I enjoyed creating it and thanks so much for taking the time to check it out.
