I love mixing up & combining the Close To My Paper suites with the mix-ins as well as one another. They always seem to work so well with one another as they do by themselves.

Today I am using a 8½” x 11″, 6″ x 6″ as well as a 12″ x 12″ Memory Protector to create a layered, interactive as well as interest to your pages & bonus is that they all fit perfectly inside a 12″ x 12″ My Legacy™ album.

Bear Hugs - July Stamp of the Month #CTMH maz.closetomyheart.com.auToday I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s (S1907) Bear Hugs – July Stamp of the Month

This stamp set is seriously cute. I just love Mumma bear holding bubba bear & the punny bear sayings that go with the stamp set.

 

And I hope you love what I created with this stamp as I really enjoyed playing around with it.

 

My first card I played on the word Bear to create Birthday & used the Into The Wild Paper Pack to create this sweet little scene card. The white frame was cut from the largest rectangle frame thin cut & Bear was cut from the alphabet thin cuts. Happy & Day came from Birthday Joy (from the Share the Joy special) stamp set.

For my next I used the Share the Joy Thin Cut & some stamps from the Bunches of Joy (from the Share the Joy special) stamp set as well as the flowers within the Bear Hugs – July Stamp of the Month stamp. I used the banner & cupcake to hide the baby bear. I used the yellow checked from Craft On paper suite.

True Love Paper Suite CTMHToday 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.

I used the Wild & Punny Stamp + Thin Cuts, Decorative Borders & Fancy Tags Thin cuts to create this cute & simple card.

With the fancy Tag I cut out some Sweet Girl green printed paper & cut off the part that has the hole in it. This tag has a nice little stitched detail on it.

The Decorative Borders was done on Raspberry to co-ordinate with the green sweet girl paper.

The cut illama was stamped in Espresso & coloured in with water colour pencils.

I also added one of the adorable black hearts from the Craft On Rubber Shapes – these are seriously cute.

Sweet GirlToday 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. 

Wild & Punny Happy Birthday  #CTMH maz.closetomyheart.com.au

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.
