Craft with Heart Subscription. Awesome kits arrive at your door!

OOPS... I am always online. Just sometimes forget to blog.

I know..... I know. ..... I post regularly on Facebook. I have a few different groups. I also am busy when people want to host their online parties. I post tutorials and samples in that forum and instagram. Sometimes.... ok.. lately a lot. My blog suffers. Please go check out my facebook page. Kay Pekin - Close to My Heart - Scrapbook and Stamping. You can see many posts on that page. Also because they changed the algorithms... I created a group so you will not miss my posts and shares. The group is Kay Pekin - CTMH Ideas and Inspiration. Between the 2 you will not miss a thing.

Chelsea Gardens Paper Pack and Silver embossing!

I used vellum over the pattern paper to soften it a bit. Then I inked the stamp set with the Versamark ink pad and used Silver embossing powder. For the Congratulations, I used Black pigment ink and our detail Clear embossing powder. 
I colored the florals and leaves and went over it with our Clear shimmer brush.

For both the cards, I used our new Make it from your Heart Card pattern book #4. It has great card patterns. You will love how easy it is to follow and the samples included.

Personalized birthday party goodie bags. Use your Alpha stamps

Here is what I quickly made for Peytons 2nd birthday.
Nadine chose a “Winter” birthday theme.  Yes… I know it is San Diego… but… she creatively did box shape igloo houses for play outside. It is actually pretty darn cute.  I made these bags with the names. I used stamps and the snowflakes were from the ARTBOOKING Cricut cartridge. 

I got the bags for 50 cents at the dollar store along with many little toys depending on the age of the kids. Because there are kids from 1-10 having names on the bags made it easy for me to have age appropriate things in each bag. 

Have a good Sunday!
