I wanted to remind everyone to make sure to pick up the January Stamp of the Month, and I received some cards that talented other Close to my heart consultants made and there was a fabulous card made by Janice Hodgkin.
Janice did a fab job on the card, she used an inspiration from the volume 4 Make It From Your Heart how-to book - a book that is full of ideas for card layouts and how to achieve some great looks - and she used the heart thin cuts and the stamp of the month to show it all off. Janice used the "Give Me Some Sugar" paper pack (brand new as of Jan 1 & only available for a limited time) and I really dig the colors - I love the retro pink & mint green together. It's a fun look.
So the stamp of the month is only available until Wednesday - remember it's the stamp you can purchase for $5 when you have a $50 order already. Or it's $17.95 without the other order. I really like a bunch of the sentiments, and this card is great because you can use it for all sorts of different occasions. This card is great in it's simplicity and easy to use it as an inspiration point.

I recently participated in a card swap with some very talented Close to My Heart consultants, and I was blown away by the creativity that they displayed! I wanted to share some of their art and give some inspiration and a head start on how they created some of the art.
Since there are so many beautiful cards, I thought that I'd try and post as many as possible throughout the month. So keep checking back to see more! I've included links to where you can find the stamps and supplies that were used to create some of the cards if you want to create them on your own, or consider contacting me to attend a "Card Buffet" - a short workshop where you can, for a small fee, pick and choose as many or as few cards you would like to create.
