Lucy Mojo

The following Mojo Monday sketch inspired me to make this cute pink card using Close to My Heart's Lucy Workshop on the Go.  
created by: AMY WHITE
As the 2012 Close to My Heart Autumn/Winter Idea Book prepares to make it's debut in August, there are several products and paper packets that will be retiring.  All the current Workshops on the Go will no longer be available to make room for lots of new workshops, including home decor, cards and the traditional layout workshops.  Don't miss your chance to get the following Workshops on the Go before they are gone forever.
     *  Lucy Kit (used above)
     *  Cruisin' Kit
     *  Florentine Kit
     *  Superhero Kit
     *  Footloose Kit
     *  Victory Kit
     *  Pemberly Kit
     *  Stella Kit
All Workshop's on the Go include a coordinating papers, an exclusive My Acrylix stamp set only offered with the workshop, coordinating accessories, as well as a complete cutting guide and instructions to complete the project.  This is an excellent value!   

*Note:  The Florentine, Pemberly, Victory and Stella paper packs will continue to be available in the new Idea Book.

A Little Scrap Lesson

Today I had a great afternoon of scrapping with my niece.  She has always wanted to scrapbook and today we finally had the time to sit down together and create mini-paper bag album.  I created the album cover, while she created the inner pages with some help from me.  The album cover design was inspired from this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge.     
 It is not an exact take on the sketch, but can you see the inspiration?
 Here are a few of our favorite pages just for fun.

My niece was so tickled with the finished product and talked about making more albums as gifts.  I think I've created a scrapper.  How fun it was to share my love of scrapbooking with another!

This weeks Heart 2 Heart Challenge is to create a card using two lines, a circle and square.  Hopefully your are able to see all the elements in this simple "Celebrate" card.  After a fun week of celebrating the 4th, I still haven't had enough fireworks, so I had to incorporate them into this card using Close to My Heart's  American Celebration Stamp Set. I am thinking this card will make a fun birthday card.  

The above card is the first of many that we will be making at my 1st Annual Operation Write Home Card Making Party to be held on Thursday, August 16th at 7PM.  Follow the link for more information on how you can help me exceed my goal.
