Can you believe that it is almost November?  Where has this year gone?

I have been asked to teach a workshop with lots of technique and I was going to do a variation of the Close to My Heart Pathfinding Workshop on the Go cards.  But as I took out the Pathfinding paper to really look at it, I totally fell in love with Pathfinding's rich colors and felt inspired.

My customers like a variety of sentiments on their cards so I designed 4 different cards that can be used for different occasions.


If you are local (Memphis, TN area) and would like to attend my workshop, the cost is only $12 to make these 4 cards and learn new techniques - heat embossing, easily adding multiple colors to your stamped images, unique random stamping, alcohol ink blending, and the sunburst card technique.


I just love everything about this card.  Who would have guessed that Glacier (blue) would go so well with the deep yellows and browns of Pathfinding?

The card design came from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.




Sunburst card. I will show you how to make this easily.  Love how this card came out.


What a wonderful autumn Happy Birthday card and who doesn't need a birthday card?

This card pattern came from Mojo Monday.  I added multiple colors to this stamp before I stamped it.  The pumpkin and leaves were all colored with our new ShinHan Markers.


Not local but want to make these cards?  I can do all of the stamping for you and send you a kit for only $17 plus $5 shipping.  I will email you the complete instructions.  

To order a kit(s), you may pay securely online with a credit card or your PayPal account by using the PayPal “Add to Cart” button below. Be sure to use the drop down menu to choose your kit options. If you would like your kit(s) shipped, please choose the shipped option. $5 will be added for shipping.

Okay.  This is now officially my favorite of my Scary Halloween Card Kit.  I love the purple (Thistle) and orange (Sunset) together topped off with the black and it makes for a very striking card.

This is all made with the Close to My Heart Scaredy Cat Paper Pack and Complements.  The Complements are made of cardstock so they are of great quality.  I backed one of the stars with a piece of Close to My Heart Silver Glitter Paper.  And check out the bat with the bitty bling eyes!

Can you see the two staples at the left bottom of the card?  We got a new mini stapler in our current catalog and it always works - no half stapled or gnarled staples.  Lovin' it for that little bit of added oomph!

Look at my spooky, scary witch riding her broom in front of a big slice of moon!

I framed my witch with a frame cut from the Close to My Heart Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  The frame and the fence is only one cut!  Can you believe that??!!  So easy and quick.

I used the Close to My Heart Scaredy Cat Paper Pack for the background paper.  The jack-o-lanterns peering out from behind the fence are, like the witch and the stars, cardstock stickers.

Super easy card to put together.  This card is another one of my Halloween cards featured in my Scary Halloween Card Kit.

Halloween is coming soon and I wanted to share a favorite card of mine with you.  This card is in my Scary Halloween Card Kit.  These cards are all made with Scaredy Cat Complements and I love the colors and the cute images.

I am loving the purple haunted house.  It even has a light in one of the windows.

The haunted house and the sentiment are both cardstock stickers.  Close to My Heart makes high quality stickers and chipboard complements that are fun and easy to use.  The frame is cut from Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and really adds to the spookiness of my card.

Only two more weeks until Halloween! As a child I used to love dressing up for Halloween and going Trick or Treating, so Halloween still brings a sense of excitement to me.

Close to My Heart has a gorgeous Halloween paper pack called Scaredy Cat.  In addition to a beautiful paper pack, they outdid themselves in the design of the stickers.  The stickers are made out of cardstock and kind of retro.  They are so pretty that I decided to make some cards with them.

They were super easy to put together and came out better than I could have hoped.

Very simple card.  Just some patterned paper, the stickers and some Silver Shimmer Trim.  The hardest part was designing the card.  I am offering this card as part of a kit that you can purchase.  The details can be found here.

These are hands down my favorite adhesive to use for our Close to My Heart Cricut Artbooking and Artfully Sent overlays and cut images.  In the video below, Kristine will show you some other uses for these glue pens.  What I like about this glue is that for the Artfully Sent cut images, I can rub the glue pen over the piece quickly and  adhere the piece down permanently and easily before it dries.  The edge of the paper piece is held down well and it stays.  Love it!!!

Just be sure and place your piece on scrap paper and then apply the adhesive because otherwise you will have a sticky work surface.  Now go check out the very short video below.  You won't be sorry!

Welcome to the October Stampers with an Attitude Focus on Artfully Sent Blog Hop.  This month I am following  {Jen Patrick.}  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs listed at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

This month our Stampers with an Attitude are making artwork using our new Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge called Artfully Sent.  This is the most incredible cartridge.  All I can say is Wow, Wow, WOW!  

Just take a look at what you get:







Here is a sample of what I made with the Artfully Sent cartridge.



This is an example of a Scene card.  I used the Brushed paper pack and love how it looks like the city lights of Paris is lighting up my card.

I cut the front part of the card out of Hollyhock cardstock.  The second piece is cut from Black cardstock.  The second piece with the Eiffel Tower is adhered directly to the back of the front of the card.  This allows the black to show through and gives me a black poodle, making a very unique card.  Lovin' it!

I finished off the card with that adorable sentiment from Paisley Perfect.  Voila!  You can make this card in 10 minutes tops.  The hardest part of the card is deciding what color and papers to use.  That is just how wonderful the Artfully Sent cartridge is.  Make a unique, eye catching card in 10 minutes or less!

You can purchase your Close to My Heart Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge on my website.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog.  The next very talented artist for you to visit on our blog hop is {Melissa Robinson}.
