A Little Bit of Pun - Stamp of the Month

There are so many ways to use this cute and punny stamp set.  I took the pun completely out of it with this card by using just the sentiment from one of the stamps.


I used the Roses embossing folder and leftover complements to make this card.  So quick and easy!

An Enchantment Christmas

I bet when you look at this:


you don't see this:

But it is!  I used the Enchantment paper to create this Christmas layout!

I used Toffee cardstock as the base, and from the Enchantment papers, I used pomegranate, fern, and New England ivy prints.  The "tradition" sentiment is from What Matters Most, and the snowflakes were cut on gold foil cardstock from the Flower Market cartridge.

Right now, you can get the Enchantment Bundle at 40% off for $22.11!  It includes 24 sheets of paper, a package of matching complements, and 12 yards of ribbon/trims.

That deal is almost too good to be true!

Sweet Holiday Wishes


Do you have coffee loving friends like I do?  What a fun card!  This coffee cup diecut is a Cricut cut, and I used paper from Beary Christmas.  The pine branches are from the Flower Market cartridge.  The Confetti Dots embossing folder is retired, but it sure was perfect for this card.  I also loved that circle of vellum to add even more depth.  Do you like that sentiment?  It's from the Season of Sweetness stamp set.  If you give food gifts at Christmas, this is a perfect set for you!

Fundamental Bundles

You are going to hear about this Fundamentals special a lot from me.  Why?  Hands-down,  I think this is the best special of the year!


All that Basic goodness wrapped up into one bundle!  This bundle includes all of the new colors from the basics palette - Charcoal, Pewter, Pebble, Linen, Mink, Heather, Espresso, Nutmeg, Toffee, and Almond.  

I love the watercolor brushed patterns of this paper pack!    The bold colors of Pansy, Pacifica, Lagoon, Emerald, Willow, Lemon, Tangerine, Blossom, Raspberry, and Cranberry have been made just a little more subtle with the artistic flair of the designs.


I know that many of you have been waiting for sports themed paper.  Enchantment is that bundle for you!  The complements and paper are generic enough to suit any sports and any schools.  Eggplant, Sapphire, Peacock, New England Ivy, Fern, Saffron, Goldrush, Poppy, Pomegranate, and Ruby are warm and very rich colors!

What beautiful spring colors!  Thistle, Crystal Blue, Glacier, Sweet leaf, Juniper, Flaxen, Canary, Sorbet, Pixie, and Smoothie are lovely colors for Easter, baby and wedding showers, Spring, and the beginning of Summer.  I know you have many photos and occasions for this paper!
I just can't even think of another place where you could get this much product in a bundle for just $22.11.  I love that Close To My Heart has offered this special!!

Fundamentals Mini Album

I created this Enchantment Fundamentals mini album for Convention in June.  I know many people have been waiting for this pattern!  

I am only showing a couple of photos here, but if you are on Facebook, I'd love for you to head over there and follow me on Brenda Rose, Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.  I am going to do a video of how this book opens and share it there along with some details about how you can add even more photos to this album with flip flaps.


An Artbooking overlay and matching diecuts in the same color as the background Enchantment paper gave the cover of this book a lot of depth.  The little gold arrow clip actually holds the book closed.


Now here is the inside of the book.  There are so many nooks and crannies that I couldn't possibly do this 6x6  album justice with a series of photos.  That's why I want to do a video.  This is the perfect album for holding sports memories.  It would be GREAT on a graduation display.


The pattern I found to create this book is written in Italian, but at the top of the blog, you can translate it into English.  The measurements are in centimeters, but you can easily convert them to inches by using Google.  The gal that created this also has very good photos on how to build the base.  So I want to encourage you to give this album a try!

Thank you for stopping today!  I hope you have a blessed weekend!
