From Me to You...

There are so many ways to say "From Me to You" with your paper crafting.  You may choose to make a card, a gift bag or box or maybe (and this is ambitious), an album.  The possibilities are endless!

I chose to create a birthday card and used the Craft On one more time before it is retired at the end of the month.  The cardstocks are Carolina and White Daisy. The design sketch is from Mojo Monday.

The sentiment and hearts were stamped with From Me to You S1908, the August Stamp of the Month.  The shading behind the sentiment was stamped with Timeless Textures, D1852.

The Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog will retire on August 31st.  To order from it, please visit my website or contact me. Be watching for news of big changes at Close to My Heart coming on September 1!

Adventure Awaits!

Oh boy...I love this heart 2 Heart Challenge!  In a little over a month, another couple and my hubby and myself will be embarking on an Eastern Euopean riverboat cruise preceded by three days in Vienna.  What an adventure! We booked this trip a year ago last spring and I can't believe the time has almost come!

As "Adventure Awaits" is this week's theme, I decided to create the cover page for my trip album.    I scanned the two guide books I have purchased and downloaded the map of our cruise itinerary. I added a September calendar with the trip dates circled.  The title was cut on the Cricut from a CTMH file and the sentiments were stamped with the Escape to Paradise stamp set (D1847).

What adventures do you still have planned for this summer or what adventures have you already participated in?  I hope you will create a project, be it a layout or a card and link it Heart 2 Heart.  You will have until the end of August to do so...just remember to use at least one CTMH product.

May all your adventures bring you joy!
