Lovely One Sheet Wonder Card Workshop and Operation Smile

I have been wanting to do some workshop crafting with the Lovely Collection from Close To My Heart that is in the current Core Catalog. My first workshop with this is a One Sheet Wonder Card Workshop that pairs paper from this collection along with the current Operation Smile Stamp Set - Every Bit of Wonderful. 


Each catalog from Close To My Heart has a stamp set in which proceeds from the set go to Operation Smile. If you are unfamiliar with Operation Smile it is a non-profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates in children around the world. 

I found inspiration for the card designs on Pinterest to create the following cutting guide:

The cardstock used for these cards comes from the Lovely Coordinating Cardstock pack for the card bases and other elements. In addition I used White Daisy cardstock for the stamped elements. The brackets for the sentiments were die cut using the Stitched Scallop Brackets Thin Cuts set and the borders on some of the card elements were die cut using the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts set.







The sentiments and embellishments were die cut and stamped using the Every Bit of Wonderful Stamp Set. The images were stamped on White Daisy cardstock using Intense Black Exclusive Ink and then colored in using Triblend Markers.

Celebrate Layout

I did another Zoom Scrapbook with me event today with my group and created this layout from my husband's birthday in 2019.  If you aren't familiar with my Scrapbook with me events. Twice a week I post a sketch and supply list to those attending and we work from the sketch over Zoom to create our layouts. This has been a great way for me to keep up on my scrapbooking and my group has been very supportive and helped me step outside of my comfort zone in creating my own layouts.

The inspiration for the layout came from this sketch from Dusty Attic. You can see this sketch along with others here.

I have been doing some challenges with my group recently to convert single page sketches into double page layouts. I did my version today by mirroring the sketch on the right-hand page.

I dug through my stash to pull out some paper as a starting point and pulled the patterned pieces from the Woodgrain paper pack and the March/April Mix-Ins paper pack. I used the Love of Color How-To Book to give me inspiration for the color combination I used. I used the suggested combination of Espresso, Pebble, Peacock, Toffee and Glacier paper. 


The title was cut on my Cricut and comes from the Artistry cartridge from Close To My Heart. You can see all of the images available in this cartridge through my affiliate link - here.

The embellishments came from my stash as well.

If you are interested in joining me for one of my Scrapbook with me events, make sure to like and follow my Facebook page to get notifications of the upcoming events.

I hope you liked the layout. Thanks for stopping by.

Eat Play Love One Sheet Wonder Card Workshop

As soon as I saw the Eat Play Love collection and the Kitchen Gnomes stamp set from Close To My Heart I could hardly wait to start creating with it. My first workshop with this collection is a 10-card One Sheet Wonder workshop featuring these products.


With this workshop you will make 10 cards. The cards use the Eat Play Love paper and coordinating cardstock from the March/April 2021 Close To My Heart catalog that is available through April 30th. I added these adorable gnomes from the Kitchen Gnomes Stamp Set + Thin Cuts. I found inspiration for the card designs on Pinterest to create the following cutting guide:


I used cardstock from the coordinating cardstock pack for the mats for various elements as well as the White Daisy for the die cut and stamped images.






The gnomes were die cut from the White Daisy cardstock, stamped with Intense Black Exclusive Inks and then colored with Triblend Markers.
