Surf's Up Picture My Life with Heart To Heart

This is my last week as a Guest Designer with Heart 2 Heart.   It's been fun and I hope you have had fun playing along with their challenges!  This week's challenge is to create a project with Close to My Heart's Picture My Life.   I created a Vacation Mini Album using the Surf's Up Picture My Life Kit and the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.   This is the project we will be doing this week at my Monthly Girl's Night Out Event.

Creating the album was really easy using the PML cards!  I just chose several 4x6 cards and added 3 additional pages I created from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.   I also used the 3x4 cards to accent several of the pages.  The pages shown below along with the album cover were created using the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.

Sneak Peek - A Confetti Wishes Birthday

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the new Confetti Wishes paper from Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations book along with a few other new products that will be released in August.   This paper is so much fun!!

My great uncle turns 90 next week and his family is throwing a big party!  When I say '90' don't you dare think wheelchairs, nursing homes and canes!   He still lives at home, travels... ALOT and even has a cabin that he and his sons have been rebuilding up in Canada.  He is a World War II vet and always has lots of stories to share.  When people talk about favorite uncles, my Great Uncle Ed always come to mind.  I wish I could join in the party this weekend but I had other obligations already on my calendar.  So, I created this fun card to send him Birthday Wishes.

The printed paper is from the new Confetti Wishes paper.  Using the Artbooking cartridge, I cut the cupcake base from our new Canary Cardstock and the layer is cut from the new glitter paper from the new Purple Glitter Paper collection.  Nearly everything on this card is new product coming August 1with the exception of the Outdoor Denim Cardstock and the cupcake from Artbooking!

Some Like It Hot with H2H

This week's challenge over at Heart 2 Heart is 'Some Like It Hot'.  I thought about creating a summer time card but as I was going through my stamps, I came across this cute little set that I had never used before.  I've been creating lots of cards lately with retired papers for an upcoming Girl's Night Out Event in August.   I just kept coming back this to stamp so I decided to create a card with it for my event.

The stamp set is called Cup of Cheer (B1404).  The B&T paper I used was from the Elementals paper pack from a few years ago.  I paired it Indian Corn Blue and Cocoa.   I used retired ribbon (Cocoa Grosgrain) and a sorbet brad from my stash.

Come on over and join us at H2H this week!
