Smitten Blog Hop


Hi There!  I am following {Melissa Robinson's blog, Heartfelt Sentiments}   We have 7 Close to My Heart Makers participating in our Smitten Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

So let me first tell you about this wonderful promotion.  Get an early start on your Valentine’s Day celebrations with the Smitten collection! This adorable Valentine’s Day-themed collection incorporates a fun variety of vibrant colors and designs, all of which are reflected in a new paper packet, sticker sheet, stamp set, and Thin Cuts metal dies. Smitten makes a wonderful base for all your Valentine’s Day projects.

Smitten’s cheery paper packet, sticker selection, stamps, and Thin Cuts are all showcased in the Smitten Product Bundle and the Smitten Workshop Kit, both of which are available at a 20% discount! The Smitten Workshop Kit includes all the materials you’ll need to create twelve slimline cards, two scrapbook layouts, and a variety of cute treat holders. The instructions for this workshop will be available for download on my Maker website. The Smitten Product Bundle includes the Smitten Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet, the Smitten Coordinating Cardstock, and the Smitten Stamp + Thin Cuts, so you get all the Smitten products you need to design and create your own projects, all at a discount!

We will also be hosting virtual crafting events for the Smitten Workshop on January 27 and January 31 on the Close To My Heart (Official) Facebook page, via Facebook live. During the January 27 event, we’ll work through the cutting guides for the entire workshop and create the scrapbook layouts and cards. On January 31, we’re turning the event into a special CTMH Kids Crafts event with Close To My Heart President, Monica Wihongi’s daughter, Maya! During this kid’s event, Maya will be teaching viewers how to create the fun treat holders that round out this workshop.

The Smitten suite will be available from December 1 through February 28, while supplies last.

So, now let me show you my layout:

My layout base is the Ballerina Cardstock from the Smitten Cardstock Paper Pack.  I used the Smitten Patterned Paper Pack + Stickers.  I grabbed a sheet of Nectarine Cardstock to bring in the Nectarine in this pattern.  I embellished with the Capri Shimmer Trim and the white dots from the Black and White Dots Pack.  I also doodled with our Black .05 Journaling Pen.  And, of course, I wanted to add dimension with our Thin 3D Foam Tape.

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, {Kim Loewen} and see what she has made.

You can purchase any of the supplies listed above on my website.
