Charlotte Diamonds

Special One Page Layout
Inspired by Close to My Heart
Using the Charmed by Charlotte advertisement at Close to My Heart
I made this special page for my grand daughter and her boyfriend
as they were celebrating their 6th anniversary of when they met.
I cut the diamonds in the Artistry Cricut booklet page 4 at 2.75 and 2.25
 inches using random Charlotte papers and slate and whisper CS. I 
stitched around the whisper CS diamonds. I placed the diamonds on some
White Daisy CS in a random manner. After the page was done I made the
following card using the same idea.

Share the Love

At Heart 2 Heart and Color My Heart
The colors are black and your choice of red.
Been having the urge to do some random stamping. So for this card I used two stamps from Woodland Romance and stamped one first and second generation. Then added just a touch of Pomegranate for my red. Sentiment is from the Share the Love February special stamp set.
And then when I went to clean up I used the leftover scraps to make a second card.
Be sure to Share the Love with us at Color My Heart and Heart 2 Heart.

Fun With Regatta

 And Atlantic Hearts
The new Regatta paper pack is really fun to play with.  I would really prefer to play with it in July but it won't be available in July. This paper pack and it's coordinating stamps and embellishments will not be available after the end of the current Seasonal Expressions April 30th. Be sure to check it out and get your summer supplies now.
This card was fun to make using the sketch from Atlantic Hearts.
The hearts with boats were cut with the Regatta paper pack and
the My Anchor thin cuts. The sentiment was cut from the zip
strip in the paper pack.
Be sure to check out the sketch at Atlantic Hearts and
share your creation with us.

Valentine Treats

Easy Last Minute Treats
Fill a coke bottle with M & Ms and decorate the bottle with B&T paper 
and a glitter heart. Tie ribbon around the top and add a tag card.
Cut an Art Philosophy or Artiste box with White Daisy CS. Cut 
out a heart shaped window and cover the opening with an Overlay
of your choice. I used the polka dotted overlay. Fill the boxes
with your favorite Valentine candy treat.

Just Because

I Heart Charlotte
And Color My Heart and Atlantic Hearts
The challenge colors at Color My Heart this week 
are the colors of the Charlotte paper pack.
I used the sketch above from Atlantic Hearts to make 
my card. Instead of circle shapes I used diamond
 shapes from the Artistry Cricut cartridge. The card
is embellished with the Charlotte Compliments and
Treasured Puffies. So grab your Charlotte and share
your creation with us at Color My Heart. If you missed
this sketch from Atlantic Hearts another new one
 will be posted on Monday.

Share the Smiles

 With Share the Love
I found a new CTMH challenge blog this week. It's Between the Folds: an anything goes challenge blog. This week the challenge is anything goes with the Charlotte paper pack. My anything goes project is my "In House Mail" project made with the monthly special stamp set Share The Love.
For every stamp set purchased this month CTMH will give $7.00 to the Operation Smile organization.
In House Mail box made with Charlotte paper pack.

Using the Share the Love stamp set I made six 3 X 3 note cards to go in the mail box. Then when someone in the house need some lovin'  just use a note card to send a message. Tuck the note under a pillow, attach to the bathroom mirror, or pop in the lunch box or the tool box.

Now share with us your Charlotte paper pack projects at
