Check Out the Annual Inspirations New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart 
Annual Inspirations New Product Blog Hop! 

This hop I am following {Cat Nowak's Blog.}   We have 25 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this Annual Inspirations New Product Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

We have a W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L new catalog that was just released and I must show what I created.  In this wonderful catalog, we have a new Cricut Collection called You are Here.

It is supposed to be a travel cartridge, but I have found it to be SO much more!  Wanna have a peek?  Here is a link to the handbook.  

I decided I needed to design a special card for my August card classes.  I really loved the Volkswagon Bug and it brought back such wonderful memories of my teen years living near the beach in Southern California.  My first boyfriend has a gold VW Bug and we were really something traveling along the Pacific Coast Highway, enjoying the sun and the beach.

So here is my card.
I just had to incorporate the sunburst overlay from our Cricut Artbooking collection and check out our new two tone cardstock.  The Crystal Blue for the sky was a bit darker than I wanted, but when I turned over the other side, it was perfectly clear sky blue.  Love it!

Do you have a Cricut and want to make this card?  It is a 5" x 7" card, so cut a piece of White Daisy cardstock 10" x 7" and then score the 10" side down the middle, giving you a 5" x 7" card.

And here are the sizes for the other cuts.

I used  these brand new stamp sets:  B1565 - A New Adventure and C1684 Inked with Love.  I also used a retiring stamp set (better get it fast!) Z3336 No Worries - Scrapbooking.  It comes with Thin Cuts and is retiring on August 31st.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Priscilla Gotham's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.

You can purchase any of the supplies used in my artwork on my website. 

Supplies Used


  1. Great cricut card. Color combination is perfect.

  2. Your card is adorable and I would love to use the DS file. However, the design is "private" so I can't load it. :-(

    1. I am sorry about that. I didn't realize with the new Design Space that it didn't automatically make it public. It is fixed now and here is the new link. https://design.cricut.com/#/design/66556874

  3. This is such a neat card! I love that you included the sizes in your post. I can just picture the little car, huffing and puffing its way up the hill... Too cute :)

  4. Fun card. I can feel the car moving up the road. :)
