CTMH Swan Lake Layout

Just sharing a quick and easy layout today.  It was designed by CTMH, but I added my own touches.  I started with CTMH Swan Lake paper, and working with two sheets of White Daisy and one Glacier sheet of cardstock, I began building my layout.  I stamped the flowers and sentiments from our With You stamp set.  Using Gold Glitter Paper and one of the new CTMH Thin Cuts, I made the word "hello".  A few Gold Sequins, and voila, a cute, quick layout!  Want to pin this layout?  Click on the title of this post, scroll to the bottom and you should see the Pinterest button!

CTMH Create Kindness Stamps with Swan Lake

This month, Close To My Heart has a special promotion called "Create Kindness".  It comes as a bundle with 8 little stamp sets and 24 little 3"x3" pastel cards and envelopes (along with ink, a block and a great organizer.  I made those little cards, but decided to put the stamp sets to use with our CTMH Swan Lake paper package.  I love how they turned out!  I colored the images using our CTMH ShinHan markers, they are amazing, and I feel I have more control than I do with my Copics.  I cut out shimmery little scalloped circles from our Sea Glass Glitter paper, a favorite of mine.  Each little stamp set is available for only $2.95 by clicking HERE!  That is a steal in my opinion!!!

Hi everyone!  I am running just a little short on time this month with just having made it home from a trip to get the four kids back to school within a day.  Yikes!  And I am very busy preparing for my crop that I am hosting tomorrow.  I promise to get a project up here instead of this placeholder as soon as I can.  In the meantime, please hop along to the very talented Creatively Artsy Card Gallery belonging to Nancy.
