Mother's Day Fun

Every year I make a card for my Mom for Mother's Day.  This year I decided that I would make a card in a box.  I had seen several examples on the internet and when I went to my scrapbook retreat, a Stampin' Up consultant taught a class making one of these adorable cards. I watched tutorial videos online to learn how to make the cards and found out that I could make this card using the Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge!  It was so easy and fun that I made cards for my daughter and daughters-in-law.  I could have cut out the flowers using my Cricut cartridges, but decided to use up some of my stash.  Here are a couple of the cards.....

I have to say that I'm hooked on these cute little cards. My grandkids can expect these cards for their birthdays this year.

What I Have Been Up To

I know I haven't posted in quite a while.  That is because I've been doing lots of fun things over the last few weeks.  During school vacation, I was so happy to go to a Girl's Night Out and participate in a Paint Nite in Newmarket.  I was a little worried as I had never painted before, but Dina picked out an easy pattern for this night.

Here are a few pictures of what it was like
This is my painting.

Look how serious we are about our paintings!

I was oblivious to the fun the people beside me were having.

Look how big our group was! We took up one whole table.

It started raining just as we left, but we were all able to keep our paintings dry.
Can you pick mine out?

If you ever have a chance to go to one of these do it!  It was such an enjoyable time and I found that I LOVE painting.  Big surprise right?

Free to Be Me

This month Close To My Heart has a cute paper pack to celebrate National Scrapbook Month.  For a $50 order, you can order the Free to Be Me paper pack for just $5.00.  I ordered mine already and it is absolutely adorable.  It even has a couple of vellum papers included. If you purchase the paper pack, I will give you a set of instructions to make this adorable layout.  The instructions also include an additional layout and three cards using the May Stamp of the Month.  The Stamp of the Month valued at $17.95 can also be purchased for $5.00 with a $50 purchase.  So, for just an additional $10 with a $50 purchase you would receive a $29.90 value.

Here is a photo of a layout that you can create using this beautiful paper pack:

My friend Dina made this layout last weekend while we were away scrapbooking and it is absolutely gorgeous.  The colors are so vibrant and I absolutely love the vellum paper.  I can't wait to get started on my layouts and cards.
