Artfully Sent...More Like Heaven Sent!

The new CTMH cartridge, Artfully Sent, is so easy that you will either declare "This must be Heaven sent!" or "This feels like cheating, it's so easy!"  This anniversary card was so easy to make, I might have to add a level of classes that comes before beginners!  And Piage Dolecki has created a wonderful cheat sheet if you want to resize the cards.  Go to her website at and download a free copy!  If you want to order the Artfully Sent cartridge, go to or contact me ( about hosting a CTMH show that can qualify you to order the cartridge at half-price!

Trick or Treat....Hmmm, I Would Pick Treat!

And chocolate is always my favorite treat!  Playing with these new treat bags from Close To My Heart was so much fun, there are Rolos and a variety of Hershey's Kisses in each bag, and they all have coordinating stickers on the bottom of each treat that came with the kit!

And this was my other September swap card. I love the ghost inside that's on the spring. When you open the card, it jumps out some and the sentiment says BOO!  My other favorite thing about this card is the paper pack name, Scaredy Cat. That is the name of one of my cats!

Masking Tape Technique on a Halloween Card

Well, I showed you my August and October swap cards, so I should probably show you my September cards! My one swap group challenged us with the Masking Tape technique. Can you see the differenc between the first and second generation? I like both, but I think the second generation makes a better background on this particular card.

Confetti Wishes Z-fold Birthday Cards

I made several birthday cards for this fall with the new Confetti Wishes paper pack. The Z-fold has to be the easiest fold to use, and it adds a little something over the traditional folded card.

Friend card with Bargello Technique

This is a card I made for my Scrapping Buckeye Babes card swap for August.  We were challenged with the Bargello Technique and a link to Splitcoaststampers for a tutorial.  I found this technique challenging, but I liked the card once I was finished!

Call me the Post-It(c) Queen

I love Post-It(c) notes!  Here are a couple of easle cards I made that hold the Post-It(c) notes.  The card with the koala is made with the papers from the Brushed paper pack.  The school-themed card uses the Chalk It Up paper pack.  They are fast and fun to make! 😀
