One of the things I love best about being part of Close To My Heart is the open sharing of ideas between consultants across the globe. Today’s little card was inspired by a lady who lives in Ohio, USA. So, thank you Bobbi Frappier Dailey! I adore ladybirds.
The ladybirds are made using the banner stamps from the Year Noted kit. I embossed the Cranberry card using the Hearts embossing folder and the XOXO comes from January’s Stamp of the month. I have this card as a kit for all my lovely ladies coming to Paper Picnic workshops this week 🙂
January’s Stamp of the month. This Moment, is $27 or just $5 if accompanied by a $75 order. Available only until Jan 31, 2015
Year Noted Stamp Set. Available Jan 2015 only as part of a kit. Spend $75 and purchase the kit for $10.
Here’s one I made using next month’s stamp of the month, A Happy Hello. I made 5 of these to give as a Secret Sister gift in Hawaii. I stamped the twig, moved it slightly and stamped again without re-inking so it would look like the branch was moving a bit as the ladybirds walked along it.

Have you had a look at the beautiful pages in this month’s CTMH special promotion? Click here for details. The soft orange, blue and yellow tones and subtle prints work so well for cards and pages. I was surprised just how far this pack of papers and stickers will stretch. I’ve created a double page layout and 2 cards and I’ve only used about half the pack. Check back tomorrow to see the cards. Today I’m sharing the pages I made.
This layout is copied from Make It From the Heart Vol 1,Layout Six. I have 4 extra 4″ x 6″ pahotos to add in flip flaps once this page is in my album.
The subtle background was scraplifted from a page featured on the CTMH Facebook page last week. Click here to check it out. The stamping is second generation. The gold foil stickers blend beautifully with the papers. I added an extra flag and a few extra dots to this cluster in the page corner. The bows on the page are also stickers.
The stamp set has a set of journalling lines and a strip of check boxes. It was fun to journal this page as a checklist of key words rather than using sentences. My tip would be to line the journal box up on your Versamat before stamping the lines and then yours will be evenly spaced.
The Year Noted kit can be yours for just $10 with a $75 order. You can also opt for the $15 kit which includes a mini album. These are limited edition items, available January 2015 only. Place your order here.
