Close to My Heart: Cross Stitch Wishes Cards

Today I have a few cards to share using the January Close to My Heart stamp set. It's a fun one, it has all different shapes and sayings that look cross stitched. I enjoyed stamping, embossing and fussy cutting these images!
Here are the cards I made:
You are the Best:
This was a fun card to make as I used Distress Inks to stamp the teal hearts and then used stamped the raspberry colored hearts and cut them out. I glued the pink hearts to the teal ones and then embossed the "You are the Best" in gold. I cut out the title and pop dotted it to the front of the card.
I added bling for some interest. 

Love Banner Card:
This is another fun and easy card to make.
I embossed the banners, and then drew the string and "love". 
Super simple and a great one to have in your stash for lots of occasions.

Love Card
This card was created with layers. I layered the black cardstock onto a cards base. I then stamped the XO in grey ink and added that to the black cardstock. Then, I stamped "Love" onto white cardstock and framed it onto black cardstock. I pop dotted the "Love" to the front of the card. To finish the card off I added bling.
This is a super fun stamp set and one I really enjoyed working with.
If you are looking for a Close to My Heart consultant I highly recommend Heather!
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
I was provided this stamp set to create products, but the opinions and creations are all my own :)

Bruges: An Interactive Layout

I love documenting travel almost as much as I love returning to the layouts and revisiting our travels. Bruges is a city I love revisiting through my albums. It's a unique place full of chocolate and relaxation.
Instead of making a mini book I decided to make a layout, but one that would have several layers and flip ups. 

This is the layout as it appears in my album:

The front page flips up revealing this: 

Then the page turns to show this:

And it turns one more time to reveal this:

 I wrote a step by step article on how to put this together for and if you are interested in making one of your own you can find the article here.

Happy Creating!
