Wishing You a Happy Easter plus a Peek at Dotty for You!

I gave myself a little break from working on a final project in one of my Master's classes so I could steal a little creative time to make Easter cards for my kids and for hubby.

A couple of the cards give you a little peek at the upcoming National Scrapbooking Month special paper packet that's called, "Dotty for You," and I bet you are going to find it adorable.

I played with my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to make these perfect egg-shaped Easter cards.  There is also a layer feature that allowed me to cut the fancy overlays.

Since I have six cards to post I am going to skip posting all of the products I used, except to say that they are all from Close to My Heart, although some have been retired, they are still some of my favorite papers and stamp sets that I have stashed away.




If you have any questions about which paper packets, stamp sets, or cutting settings for the Cricut cuts, please shoot me an e-mail at: lovetostamp@live.com and I'll be happy to help you.

I'll also give you the information you will need to know for the upcoming "Dotty for You" special:

National Scrapbooking Month—Dotty for You

When you place an order of $35 or more in products from the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book between April 17 and May 31, you may add the Dotty for You paper packet, valued at $19.95, for just $5.

Lucy Workshop Layout: You'll Always Be Mine


I am teaching this workshop later this month and I wanted to share the first two pages of our layout that is the main layout included in the Lucy Workshops on the Go kit.  The brochure that comes with the kit gives you cutting instructions as well as step-by-step directions for the stamping and assembly.

Here is what my pages looked like once I completed the brochure instructions. You can click on my photo for a larger view:


Project Supplies:
Stamps: Lucy Workshops on the Go exclusive stamp set
Paper: G1034 Lucy Workshops on the Go kit
Cardstock:  Colonial White, Creme Brulee, and Cotton Candy
Inks: Blush, Creme Brulee, and Grey Wool
Embellishments: NEW X7149C Lucy Complements Glittery Rub-Ons and Z1263 Bitty Sparkles
Tools: Lucy Workshops on the Go exclusive brochure, Micro-Tip Scissors, Sponge Dauber, Glue Dots, 3-D Foam Tape and Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection exclusively for Close to My Heart

My apologies on the photo.  I bought myself a new camera and I am still figuring out what I am doing.  You would think that if you spend twice as much on a camera than the old one it should take even better photos.  Go figure!

Let me know if you would like to order your own to kit to get started on these pretty pages, or if you are local, to me sign up today to join my class by contacting me at:  lovetostamp@live.com
