New Year's Resolutions

Every year I have the same Resolution. It is one of those resolutions that you stick with for a few weeks and then....You just can't resist. Crazy enough, I am talking about paper...not a diet. I try and use up old paper, embellishments, and use older stamps. But it is a simple and innocent addiction that just is hard to stick to. I must buy NEW stuff and add to my stash!! Close To My Heart makes it hard to stick to my Resolutions. I am trying to a least make a few cards or layouts a week to somewhat stick to what I promised myself.

Here is a little quick card I whipped up to make myself feel better. ;) I used a template from the CTMH Card Confidence Program Wishes "Bullseye" on page 33.

All supplies are CTMH unless otherwise noted:
Desert Sand CS, Colonial White CS, Sweetleaf CS; Twitterpatted Level 2 B&T paper; D1372 Grown with Love stamp set; D1361 Thank You stamp set; Chocolate ink, Crystal Blue ink, Sorbet ink, Desert Sand ink; Sorbet stitched ribbon; blue bitty brad (unknown source); Sweetleaf "tree" cut with Sweethearts Cricut cartridge; pop-dots.

Be Mine, Valentine!

I love making Valentine cards. Now that the holidays are behind us, things are a little quieter and I have had some extra time to devote to my paper crafting. This particular card design is from a sketch challenge, Mojo Monday 172 from last week. It was super easy and fun putting this one together.

All supplies are CTMH unless otherwise noted: D1445 Amore (December Stamp of the Month); Black Cardstock; Crystal Blue B&T paper from Notebook Level 2; Heart and Polka Dot paper from BoBunny Press (from my old stash); Black brads; Stampin' Up border punch.

My Hostess Club is meeting tomorrow and I always like to whip up a few cards as a gift for the hostess. Two of the cards I scraplifted. The Dress Form card was inspired by AaronB and and the middle card was inspired by Debbie Carriere. The CTMH Wings paper is gorgeous and the Stamp of the Month, D1452 Find Your Style is a lot more versitle than what I anticipated. A must have set with a vintage charm.

Wings Level 2 B&T paper; D1452 Find Your Style stamp set; B1376 Wings stamp set; Vineyard Berry CS, Black CS, Juniper CS, Colonial White CS; Opaque pearl;, Stitched black ribbon; black waxy flax; Pretty pins (modified); Colonial white button; Butterfly (Cricut Cartridge, Give a Hoot); Spellbinders scallop and circle die
