This month I am getting caught up with some much needed scrapbooking. I have been working full time and looked so forward to getting back to what I love to do! The paper pack is now retired 'HopScotch" from the Season expressions 1 book. I knew it would go so well with my granddaughter;s birthday pics. The stamp set just finishes off what I feel about her right now and her life moving forward. Yes "life" is about to happen and she enters her third year. I am so enjoying her conversations and she talks constantly,always asking questions.

When the weather gets got, I scream for Ice Cream ! One of my favourite treats. I used the layout on page 22 of the Annual inspirations catalog as inspiration. That's the great things about this catalog. So many great layout to "scrap lift" !!!!
Here's a different twist,Ice cream in the bathtub ! It's a soap that squirts into a toy ice-cream cone. Great way to get kids washing themselves. My granddaughter sure had fun playing in her bath with this new toy!
Here is a close up of parts of the layout


















Here are some samples of artwork from the creative people at Close To My Heart.

I love this stamp set. It is so versatile! The sentiments can be used on a scrapbook layout or a card.
I am in the process of using this stamp set on one of my granddaughter;s layouts but haven't finished it quite yet however I wanted to show folks how this stamp set could be used on cards.
I made 4 different cards. So here they are;



On this card I used a number of expressions stamped in Champagne for a tone on tone look and the 'You and Me' was stamped with Close to My Heart black archival ink. I love the look and it's such a simple card. I cut the card using Art Philosophy.


 


On the next card I used the square stamp with the mini chevrons to create my own background. I sued  Close To My Heart :Champagne ,saddle and honey ink. The metal Artisan studs(Z1816) are also from Close to My Heart. I thought this card could be a male themed card.




On the third card I used one of the mini circle lined stamps and did random stamping on the card front using Close to My Heart Pear,Honey and smoothie for the back ground. I used the Close to My Heart scallop punch for the middle border and edged it with  Close to my Heart -green glitter paper. I used the happy Birthday sentiment from another of our Stamp sets called ,Your own kind of wonderful D1627. Again I stamped the Date in  Close to My Heart black Archival ink to make it stand out.


Foe the last card I used the Mini Flag to create a small banner across the top,  Close to My Heart Glacier extra thick twine Z3039,Coral Reef sequins(love these!)Z3042, Shimmer Trim- Teal( CTMH),Pear cardstock. Yes stamped the You and Me in Black Archival ink.

                                          
                                        Here is more artwork done by the folks at Close to My Heart.

I love this stamp set. A number of my customers have been "itching" to get this stamp. I usually use the Stamp of the Month on my Scrapbook pages but wanted to to do something a little different by trying out some "wet embossing" and creating a variety of cards. I used up scraps of paper left over from a number of layouts completed over the last few months. Great way to use the "stash" of little pieces of card stock and patterned paper.
