Paper Piecing Card #1 - Father's Day (ft. LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

We had a wonderful day as a family celebrating Father's Day. Our two sons made plans for us to go hiking at Silver Creek Falls here in our local area. It was a beautiful day.


I have created two projects for Father's Day using cut files from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs and the amazing Close To My Heart cardstock (currently on sale for 25% off). I love how easily the cardstock cuts in my Cricut Explore, even down to the tiniest pieces for the piecing's eyes.

This first project is a card where I have used a bear cut image from a paper piecing set I have used earlier in the year from LSHD. I typically cut at least two of an image at one time for a current project and for future use.


My second project is a tag where I have used the dad from the cf June Calendar Friend (minus the mustache and beard). For the T-shirt, I used a stamp from a dad themed stamp set from Close To My Heart (Day For Dad - Retired).


Enjoy!

Two Page 12x12 Scrapbook Layout #20 - "Teddy Bear Picnic" (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

It is Monday, how can I be happy about that? It is officially my summer break. There are no more "have to" dates for work until August. I could always go in and organize my classroom teaching materials, but we will see how quickly I get in to do that, LOL.

Also, Monday brings to you a new theme on the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, Design Team Blog. This week we are sharing projects with an "I'm Going on A Picnic" theme. For my project I shared a 2 page layout using the "Teddy Bear Picnic" image. I hope you will take some time out of your week and stop by the blog. Be sure to share a comment or two about the projects and maybe how you plan to participate in the theme as well.

All supplies are from my Independent Consultant Close To My Heart website (cardstock and inks) except the picnic basket patterned paper. Remember, there is a sale on cardstock going on... 25% off. I always appreciate your support through purchases on my website.




Enjoy!

My Craft Space - Piles of Paper 2017

Hi Paper Crafters,

Back to reorganization... Word of the week - Theme. I have spent a few days in my craft room repeating the alphabet over and over in my head as I have sorted my stickers and paper into categories. My system is based on the Totally Tiffany way of organizing. Be sure to check her videos out, but first watch mine :-)

Enjoy!

"Engaged Couple" - Little Scraps of Heaven Designs

Hi Paper Crafters,

Tonight I am taking some time out from the finishing touches on my paper sorting to share a new file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. This is near and dear to my heart as I am the proud mom of a newly engaged son. Yes, my oldest son proposed to his girlfriend last Friday, and she said YES! We are very excited for them. With this union, my husband and I will gain a "daughter" and a grandson. 

Please join me in celebrating this event by creating some projects using the "Engaged Couple" for the special proposals in your family. I can't wait to have you share the proposal stories... Purchase your own image on the Little Scraps of Heaven Design website.

Enjoy!
