When you place an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products, you qualify for this special Stamp of the Month pricing.

Hello again

I titled my post as it is because I feel as if I need to reintroduce myself! Lol. I haven't posted since June! I didn't realize that it was that long ago! Shame on me. It was a summer of visiting family and friends and reorganization of things in the home. I hope that you have had an enjoyable summer as well and are ready for a new season and new Close To My Heart products! 

You are looking at the cover of the 2015-2016 Close To My Heart Idea Book. It is filled with new colors, trendy stamp sets, beautiful paper packs, awesome embellishments, and a very versatile Cricut cartridge,  just to name a few. I will be posting artwork here in the next few weeks to show some of the great products. You can view the new idea book on my website

The Autumn Holiday expressions is also available starting Sept. 1st and available to view online as well.

If you would like a hard copy of the catalogs, contact me - small charges may apply, depending on shipping.

Mojo 401 May STOM - Ice Cream Dream

I turned the sketch sideways so I could use the adorable ice cream truck that is with this month's CTMH stamp of the month, Ice Cream Dream. I still had difficulty getting the truck to fit in the space, so I decided to stamp the ice cream "signage" on top of the truck going off the piece of cardstock and then stamped it again on another piece of cardstock, then colored it, cut it out and layered it so it would fit on top of the truck. Same with the tires. Looking at the image now, I wish I would have outlined the whole truck with a light gray alcohol marker before photographing it so it looked more dimensional. I will have to change that as an afterthought ; )

Here is the sketch for Mojo Monday 401 (love this site)

Here are all the images for this months SOTM, Ice Cream Dream. You can buy it here for $17.95 OR even better yet, you can purchase it for only $5.00 with a $50.00 qualifying order (before tax/shipping) from my website
