Hello, friends!

I wanted to talk about this month's specials for a few minutes this morning and maybe show you a couple of projects for inspiration. 

I am going to start with the Share the Love stamp set. This set is filled with adorable icons and loveable sentiments. This EXCLUSIVE February stamp set will be a beautiful addition to your collection—but there is more to this stamp set than meets the eye! Not only will you be getting a high-quality, swoon-worthy stamp set by taking part in this promotion, but Close To My Heart will also donate $7 USD of the proceeds from this stamp set to Operation Smile™, an amazing organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children all over the world!

Let's talk about the stamp of the month! This set is called Balloon Animals and would make a fun addition to your stamping stash! It coordinates with the Artistry cartridge and is perfect for birthday projects!

Cricut Happy in Love card

Hello, friends!

Before I get started, I wanted to share with all of you some changes to Cricut Design Space. The subscription is now called Cricut Access and the price has gone down to $7.99/mo instead of $9.99. Also, it is lots easier now to see if a cartridge you have access to is one you own versus one that is free with the subscription. Just look for the green Cricut Access symbol! This is much easier to see than the small font that was used earlier that said either 'purchased' or 'subscribed'.

Today, I have a card that I made using the Love Struck cartridge and the Woodland Romance stamp set

The heart border was sliced into the white layer in Design space, but if you are making this card with the Expression you can just layer it on top of the white. 

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Happy in Love card

If you do not have an Explore, I cut the border out at 4 3/4".

Just Called to Say I Love You card

Hello, friends!

Today, I have a fun card that I made using a stamp set that is only available in February. This exclusive stamp set called Share the Love and if you purchase this stamp set ($17.95), Close To My Heart will donate $7 to Operation Smile. If you don't already know, Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that provides free life-changing surgeries for children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. 



For this card, I used Close To My Heart inks to make a watercolor effect for the background paper. I really love how this turned out! To do this, I put a drop of ink (from my re-inkers) on an acrylic blog. Then, I used a watercolor brush to dampen the watercolor where I wanted the color. Then, I added the three colors. The colors were added separately, but I allowed them to touch as they dried. This created a gradient between the colors that looks so great. It took about thirty minutes to dry. 

The rest of the card is stamped and paper pieced. Easy peasy!
