Close To My Heart is having a fun special for the month of May...since it's National Scrapbooking Month...they put together a really bright and colorful paper pack called "Taste Of Summer". I think you're going to just LOVE this paper pack! They also added a cute stamp set that matches too! The paper pack and the stamp set are both available starting May 1st...and remember we always have a Stamp Of The Month...which, if you spend $50 you get the SOTM for just $5.00!

Note Pad and Post-It Note Cover Ideas

I thought I'd share a few projects I made. I gave them as "Thank You" gifts. I also wanted to show you how a project can be the same but just change the embossing folder for a different look. I think they came out cute. I made covers for post-it notes. I used the embossing folders: Honeycomb (Z1995) and Quatrefoil (Z1926). I also used the stamp set "A Little Note" (A1171) and markers to color the stamp set in.

Ps. A tip I want to's better to do the stamping and coloring in before you emboss the paper.    

A Little Note Post-It Note

This project (see below) I covered a note pad. I used the paper pack "Hopscotch" which just retired...and the stamp set "Your Own Kind of Wonderful" (D1627). I added a little bling but I'm not sure you can see it in this photo. I think everyone who received these gifts were happy.

Want An Easy Way To Help Operation Smile?

I thought today I'd share a special stamp set. It's called "Happy Everything" D1653. The reason it's special is because, if you buy this set, CTMH will donate $3.00 of the proceeds to Operation Smile. Operation Smile performs surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children. I love that CTMH (and you) can help children get life-altering surgeries! So make sure to add this set to your order!

Sharing Lots Of Fun CTMH Projects

I thought I'd share some projects that I case you're looking for ideas. I helped my daughter make invites for her birthday party next month. The picture shows the front side (the back has all the party details) and the cupcakes are 5 1/2" in size (it's hard to tell from the photo what size they are). I think they came out cute.

 I also made a card for my cousin for her birthday. I decorated both sides.

I also made this cute card...not sure what I'm going to do with it yet...maybe I'll send it to someone who could use some happy mail?!


And, I saved the best for last! My son (he's 10 years old and lately has been into making cards) made this card for a friend at school. I think it came out adorable!

A Gift From My Son To His Teacher

I thought I'd share a gift and card (my 10 year old son made the card) for his teacher. He saw the angel (at an estate sale he was helping run) and thought of his teacher. He's such a sweetheart! I bet she loves the gift (he even wrapped it up and put it all into a gift bag for her). See, CTMH is for everyone!

CTMH Card and Treat Box

The stamp sets used to make these 2 projects are: Doodled Designs (A1170), Wish (M1051), and Sweeter With You (M1053).

These projects go together great!
