I am looking through all my stash to try to either use it up or put it on a de-stash facebook page before I start with Close to My Heart. I have a mix of different products from different companies and lots and lots of different papers so I will probably take some of these to use up at my Crafty Angels group when we do some papercrafts next term.
With these cards I have used a burgundy card from Stampin’Up (sorry I don’t know the name of the colour as it came in a pack that was on special – I have been told it is Rich Razzleberry by my Stampin’Up friend Julie Butler) and white cardstock and used embossing folders and Memory Box dies to create these cards. I even sneaked in some stamping as well. I took these cards to the library where I take a card making session and sold a couple of cards before I could even get them put aside for Make Shift.
Here they are:
Memory Box dies – Cherry Blossom, Phloe, Pippi Butterfly
Dienamics Die – Fancy Flourish
Stampin-Up Stamps – Cottage Garden
Creative Memories Custom Cutting System – ovals
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder – Elegant Frame, Swiss Dots
Purchased sympathy stickers.
White ribbon and button from my stash
I have just purchased a Cricut Expressions 2 and put it on layby so won’t be picking it up for a while. I am not sure how long I can hold out with this as it is going to expand my creative horizons so much! I have been watching videos on You-Tube and can’t wait to get started. Next week I am off to Auckland to learn more about Close to My Heart and get the chance to get my hands on some of the CTMH products which I am really looking forward to. We have been really fortunate that we have got this opportunity to move forward with. I really feel for the CM Consultants in Canada and the United States who may not have the same opportunities.
Have a good day and Happy Crafting.
