No Worries Paper Suite www.maz.closetomyheart.com.auSit back, breath & relax you are in for a wonderful treat to see what wonderful ideas have been created using the No Worries Paper Suite and will you just look at the lovely colour combination – so nice & relaxing

 

This is one great paper pack to get to scrap Summer Beach holiday’s, cruises (I need to scrap my cruise photos) or just a getaway out in the sun & nature.

For this paper pack I created this relaxing Happy Place card – I can just imagine sitting on the deck chair & watching the sun go down & the palm trees creating a shadow – with a cocktail in hand – ah bliss.

Happy Place Close To My Heart No Worries Card #CTMH www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The Deck Chair, the sign & star fish come from the No Worries Complements, the wood grain background from the No Worries Paper Packet and the Trees & Birds from the No Worries-Scrapbooking stamp set.

The Sunset was created with Lemon, Tangerine & Blossom Exclusive Inks smooched onto the All-Purpose Mat & water added. This blended the colours & created a water coloured look for the sunset. Once dried I stamped with Archival Black Exclusive Ink.

I cut out a circle frame using the BasicCircle Thin Cuts & added Black Dots to be like rivets on a porthole window.

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

Enjoy the hop & thanks so much for taking the time to check out these ideas with this month’s feature on the Close To My Heart No Worries Paper Suite.…Til next time, see you soon & keep creating!

Hello Foxy - June Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.auHello Foxy – June Stamp of the Month certainly is a very cute stamp set.

With playful foxes, a lovely wreath & flowers plus some words  there is just so many possibilities with possibilities with this stamp set too; just by adding 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 Jun 30th, to own it.

I had a lot of fun creating with Hello Foxy – June Stamp of the Month and I hope you enjoy the couple of ideas that I created for this blog hop.

Hello Foxy Card - June Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The first card I used the wreath to focus on one of the Foxes from the stamp set. I added a gold embossed crown from the Little Dream cardmaking set to my fox – it fits perfectly. The woodgrain background is from the No Worries Paper Packet – it is one of the pocket pages. The flowers and the fox were coloured in with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers

Jack the Bear with Flowers from Hello Foxy - June Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The second card I have used the flowers from the Hello Foxy stamp set to go with the Bear from the Jack Cardmaking stamp set. The papers are from Little Dreamer Paper Packet & the card itself is made from one of the All About the Gold Fundamentals. I have been meaning to create a card using one of these see-through overlays. The trick is to position your papers & card stock on either side of the the card front & back so you do not see any tape – so this allows you to add a saying on the inside front & still write on the card. I love how the Bear is holding one of the flowers as though he is ready to give it as a gift.

And I’d love for you to leave a comment before you head on over to the very talented Doris Taylor – Creative Inspirations to get more wonderful ideas on how to use this stamp set.

Enjoy the hop & thanks so much for taking the time to check out these ideas with this month’s Stamp of the Month. I hope you enjoyed what I created, as much as I enjoyed creating it. Remember you only have until Jun 30th, to own this stamp set.

Live, Laugh, Love - May Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.auLive, Laugh, Love saying has been around fro a very long time and this month it makes a lovely appearance in this month’s Live, Laugh, Love Stamp of the Month & you can play with the stamp set too, just by adding 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.

I decided to focus on using one of the flowers & the together word along with some Little Dreamer Paper from the new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book which also starts today!

Together Card using Close To My Heart Live, Laugh, Love - May Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au.jpg

The flowers were coloured in with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers & I played with cutting the cardstock as a triangular point so that you only got a peek of the pattern paper. This gave me an a place to stamp the together word at an angle. Some clear & bitty sparkles finished the card off nicely.

And I’d love for you to leave a comment before you head on over to the very talented Shaunna Richards Passionate About Pages to get more wonderful ideas on how to use this stamp set.

Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Suite www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

 

This month is the last month to get your hands on this bright & bold, fun & funky Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Suite and it really is a versatile paper pack.

To show you I made two completely different cards using this paper pack.
Some Kinda of Wonderful Flower Card. www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The fist card I used the softer patterns, the blue stripes, they grey with white arrow heads & the white with grey triangles. I also used the flowers from the Workshops Your Way® Here for You Cardmaking Kit – which also uses some paper from the Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Suite.

Some Kinda of Wonderful Sleeping Fox Card. www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au

The second card I used the bright bold patterns & one of the compliment stickers of a sleeping fox. I think this would make a nice baby card with a bit of difference.

I hope you enjoyed what I created today & if you did so, please leave a comment before you head over to the very talented: Lauren Moore- CTMH Craftings who I am sure will showcase something absolutely wonderful with the Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Suite.

This is little Partridge Family (no not the TV show featuring Shirley Jones and David Cassidy) has some very cute sayings that would be perfect for a Scrapbook layout but I decided to create a card. I really do like the scallop edge & thought it was perfect for a card.
