Seasonal Expressions Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Close to My Heart blog hop - enjoy artwork made by lots of consultants using products found in our first ever Seasonal Expressions catalog.   You should have arrived here from Melissa's blog.  I chose to use Heartstrings this month. I hope you enjoy our cards and projects and get lots of inspiration from us.

My favorite thing in the new Catalog is the Amour stamp set - the Eifel Tower is my newest bucket list item!  This was my first easel card and I used it in a card swap in January.

This is the card on page 4 - 2nd favorite stamp set is A Thing Well Done in the Hostess Rewards section. Both types of embossing really kick this card up a notch- try it!

These are called Screen Divider cards - new to me but they sure were fun!  Cut card base 11 x 5-1/2 -fold in half, then both sides in half again.  It's less confusing than it sounds ;-) give it a go  :-)  Use an edge punch to design the top and the bottom "legs" are punched with the decorative label punch (from "that other company" LOL).  Then decorate to your hearts content....  with Heartstrings Complements!

And my final project to share with you today:
A My Creations Pennant Frame.  These are so easy with the Artbooking Cricut cartridge! You cut the frame in your choice of paper & it magically fits just perfectly.  Then I decorated with white shimmer - SO pretty - washi tape & pieces I cut from the Picture My Life cards.

I hope you've enjoyed your time here with me and please don't stop yet - hop on over to Belinda's  blog, and be sure to leave comments for all of us - we love those!

Have a great day -come visit again soon!


  1. Wendy, all of your creations are stunning! I particularly like the screen folder card. I have never made one before. I will be lifting It. :)

  2. You have been busy too. I will need to give the screen folder cards a try. I really like your pennant frame.
