I am known for sending 'belated' birthday cards... well today, I said NO MORE! I created this mini accordion birthday book to organize all my birthday's by month so that I can look ahead and be prepared to send birthday cards timely!
This book features blank spaces for you to add a date and a name. Each month features a different die cut and all the pieces and parts come ready to assemble!
Twelve months are included along with blank front and back cover.

Create the perfect little handmade gift bag to hold those handmade soaps you plan to give to Mom or Grandma!
I tend to purchase gifts for my mom that she can actually use vs another knick knack or frame that she has no where to set or hang. Usually I send her handmade cards but another idea is to grab some of those fun handmade soaps and I created the perfect bag for them!
This adorable Happy Thoughts card box set comes with 6 cards and 6 tags.
Order your project kit and then watch the instructional step by step assembly video! The video will be posted by May 30th, right here.

Quick, easy and fun stamp dragging technique adds a fun effect to your stamped image. What's even better is it allows for a stamped image that isn't stamped 'perfectly' to look perfect! Because this one is meant to be perfectly imperfect. :)
If you tried this technique for yourself, leave me a comment!
Thanks again Dana Swadling for the card design!
Stamp used here is the April 2019 Stamp of the Month, which can be (or could have been) yours for only $5 with a minimum purchase at https://shelly.closetomyheart.com
It's mid April and we've already got a camping trip in for the year! This is a first! Back home in Upstate New York, Spring is just peeking through the snow and no one will shovel out their camping gear to head out until the end of May. We found a few campgrounds in Connecticut that are actually open year round.
This weekend's project was using the One Scoop at a Time workshop from Close to my Heart. I added my own spin to the workshop directions because I didn't have all the necessary tools at camp to create the exact cards they have pictured.
This One Scoop at a Time workshop creates 12 cards and costs $20.95, which is just under $1.75 per card. Now that's a great price for a handmade card!
The kit includes:
1 – exclusive workshop stamp set (B-size)
2 – cardstock patterned paper - Something Fierce sheets
3 – cardstock sheets (1 Lemon, 1 Raspberry, 1 White Daisy)
1 – Silver Glitter Gems (Z4191)
12 – white card bases & envelopes
Additional supplies needed:
Lemon Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2808)
Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2805)
Raspberry Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (Z2812)
Darker colored cardstock paper for the background matte
Tombow or your tape runner
Here's the quick how-to video from camp!
Thanks again Mystic KOA for a great weekend! We can't wait to return!
There is a really quick way to distress your cards and give them some dimension. Just sponge them! So simple and easy. Watch the quick video below to see how I sponged the card pictured here.
I used the emerald colored Close to my Heart ink on this card and the pansy colored ink in the second card. Matched it with color coordinated cardstock as well.
