Bingo Blog Hop

Welcome to our March Art Philosophy/Artiste Blog Hop!   
As you know, both the Artiste and the Art Philosophy cartridges are available exclusively through a Close to My Heart consultant.  If you don't already have a Consultant that you are currently working with, please contact one the Consultants in our hop with any questions you have!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create.  If you came from Melissa L of MyWatermelonMoon then you are in the right place!

 Our challenge this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but also a "BINGO" card!

Here is the BINGO card that our Consultants were given:

The Consultants were told they could  make anything they wanted using the Artiste OR Art Philosophy cartridge AND you work off the BINGO card posted above. Basically, you make a "BINGO" by going across, down, or diagonally and you have to use everything in that bingo line.

Our 3D flowers are super easy to make and make the most beautiful projects!! I made this topiary with just the rose flower cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and Colonial White Card Stock.
Each rose took no time with a Quilling Tool.

I added just a little Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint to the ends of the roses, and Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel to the centers of each. I didn't want to over do the sparkle on this project because as it stands it can be a decoration for any time of the year with just a switch of the ribbon.

Your next stop on our "BINGO" hop is Michelle of My Creations with Michelle.

Floral Happiness Blog Hop

Welcome to our March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  
This month's stamp from Close to My Heart is "Floral Happiness" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from March 1 - 31, 2013.  You can purchase this stamp set for only $5 with a qualifying purchase.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create. If you came from Amber of Scrapper's Therapy then you are in the right place!

I am so very excited to share with you my project for this hop! When I make art to show here on my blog, my FaceBook page or at a home party... I always try to make something I can give away or use in my own home. 

This project was made for a friend that is moving in just a few weeks... I will miss her greatly! 

I love that you can make something from your heart with almost anything from Close to my Heart!! I used For Always paper pack, paired with Sweet Leaf and Juniper cardstock. Embellished with Black & Gray Glitter paper, Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Shimmer Trim Black and Silver, Black Tulle Ribbon, and White Rosette Ribbon. New Black Buttons and Sparkles were also used to embellish this wonderful memory book. 

Using both CTMH Cricut Cartridges to make the inside pages was a fun way to make the book one of a kind!

This book was inspired by Close to my Heart them self's:
