Playing with Close To My Heart Products This Weekend!

My former upline from Close To My Heart has been in town this weekend having a retreat with her Colorado consultants. She had an opening on Friday and emailed me to ask if I’d like to come and play with her. I haven’t seen her in several years, so I said absolutely!

My friend, Becky went as well and it was fun checking out the new catalog and catching up with Kay. Oh and playing with some CTMH product. *Ü*

I was particularly smitten with the Chantilly line.
 This started out as a standard A2 card front and ended up a 5x7.
 So many fun little doodads to add!
This is a 6x6 accordion fold mini album. I've just decorated the cover. I really like the zipper/ribbon and the fabric. The swirly wood pieces are fun, too. 

These two projects were completely inspired by some projects I saw in the new 2013 Spring Summer CTMH catalog. Not sure if it has gone live yet, we didn't talk about that. I didn't see it on the CTMH website as their online catalog, which is why I'm not sure.

I used Happy Thoughts and Frame Flair stamp sets. I think the pink ink is Cotton Candy. I've also used Sweet Leaf and Buttercup inks.

It sure was a lot of fun playing. In fact, Jessica had a skating birthday party to go to today at a location very near where Kay was staying. So, I dropped Jessica off at her party and went and played with Kay and the gals again this afternoon for the duration of the party. Nothing got finished, but I did cut more of this Chantilly paper.  Hee, hee!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great day. And thanks, Kay, for emailing me!
