Jack Paper Packet

I decided to create a slider card using the featured Jack Paper.

This allowed me to use a variety of papers patterns & add a little surprise element to the card. If you look closely you will see that I used some of the patterned paper to create the bow instead of plain cardstock.

I even pulled out the new Scallop Border Thin Cut & tried cutting it into some Gold Shimmer Trim – which I just had to use to decorate the present.

With the slider closed it looks like a little present & once you pull the tab it revels a little bear that hides behind (or in) the present. What is great about this idea is that you can use any pattern paper to create your present – you just need to decide what will be revealed once the slider tab has been pulled open!

Close To My Heart Prickly Pear Paper Suite: Australasian Blog Hop

Australasian Blog HopA Happy Hello and welcome aboard our Prickly Pear Paper Suite Australasian, Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from the amazingly creative Georgia O’Shea – Georgia Creates  then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, ‘no worries’, please join in by following the link at the end of this blog post – where you will discover lots of ideas.

 

Close To My Heart Prickly Pear Paper www.maz.closetomyheart.com.auI decided to really show off this fun Prickly Pear Paper Suite and I thought what better way to do that, than with a pop up Box card.

This type of card allows me to really make use of the paper, even fussy cutting some of the Cacti out to use amongst the stamped a Thin Cut Cacti from the Prickly Pear cardmaking and Scrapbooking stamp sets.

And that Llama – he is too cute not to use.

You may have noticed that the bunting used on the card is actually the rug that sits on his back, fussy cut out from being stamped on the different pattern papers that make up the Prickly Pear Paper Suite.

I have even used one of the z strips& cut out the wonderful day banner from one of the cut apart picture my life cards. This is one bright happy fun card and I enjoyed creating it.

I hope you enjoyed what I created today & if you did so, please leave a comment before you head over to the very talented: Colleen Geldenhuys who I am sure will showcase something absolutely wonderful.

CTMH Stamp of the Month: Storybook Alphabet (S1707)

I love the Stamp of the Month Storybook Alphabet (S1707) – the font is so playful & cute, so it was just a shame that I did not get around to actually making anything with it!

Seriously – this fun stamp set as I write this (the night before the 1st July) , this stamp set has remained un-inked – so I haven’t even played with it. I love it – but not touched it since I got it! Anyone else like that? Love something – but don’t even use it?

Storybook Alphabet—July Stamp of the Month

And seeing this weekend is the Close To My Heart Convention & I will be off finding out what new products will be in store soon and even getting to play with some – I will not be touching this stamp set over the weekend!

But I do have some ideas to share with you, created by the talented Close To My Heart Art Department.

First up is this great Adventure Mini Scrapbook Album. Adventure Mini Scrapbook Album: Created with Close To My Heart Storybook Alphabet—July Stamp of the Month

I love the use of colour for the letters & the use of the pennants  – I actually think this would make a great card front for someone going on an adventure holiday.

Next up is this fab scrapbook layout

This Day Scrapbook Layout: Created with Close To My Heart Storybook Alphabet—July Stamp of the Month

I love the use of the Prickly Pear Paper Packet and how the Storybook Alphabet (S1707) has been used as part of the title as well as a journalling prompt. I love that idea – I will have to use it for one my future scrapbook layouts

So if you want to get Storybook Alphabet (S1707) (and actually play with it)  you can add it to your cart at full retail price of $27 OR, with your qualifying order of $75, add it at checkout for the promotional price of $7.50.

You only have until Jul 31st, to own it. Believe me the month will fly by & be finished before we know it and I most likely will still have not made anything with this stamp set!

Well while I have no work of my own to share with you, I do hope you  enjoyed the inspiration created from the wonderful Close To My Heart Art Department.

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out this post.

See you soon.
