I made this card with inspiration from this card here by Annette Green. I changed it up a bit as I don’t have a pocket die or the Tough Tags & I love how it turned out. I just had to do some measuring to get the pocket shape:) I love how sanding shows the white core of the Outdoor Denim cardstock. I used the Ruler to make the stitches & connected them with a chocolate maker. I cut the card, circle, and label shape with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. The stamped images are from “Pure Adventure”. I love this stamp set! I colored the Pewter Badge Button with Brown StazOn & used Round Durable Studs & Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I love how this turned out & hope you do too!!! I’m going to give it to my father-in-law for Father’s Day:)

I made this awesome wallet with some fun girls at a party last night:) I found the idea on annettescreativejourney.blogspot.com.

I changed mine a bit from hers as I wanted to use the “You Are…” stamp set. I cut out the base for the wallet from a piece of “Victory” paper with this awesome design in the corner. I love how this looks with just “Original” pop doted up on the front. Here is a look at the inside…

I used the stamp set “Stitched Together”  to make it look like the it was stitched & made credit card shaped inserts with sayings from the “You Are…” stamp set on them to describe my amazing Husband!:)

My kids love this & can’t wait to give one to their Dad & Grandpa’s!! They thought it would be fun to put some slips of paper in with things they could do for their Dad, like play X-Box with him, or give him a back rub, or go shoot guns, as well as a gift card:)

If you would like to make one of your own, you will need the Stamp Set “You Are…” and a pack of “Victory” paper available at sweetcherryink.ctmh.com & you would need to cut these papers:

Base – 9″ X 3 1/2″, Scored at 4 7/16″ & 4 9/16″

Wallet insert – 8 1/2″ X 3″  folded in half

2 pieces 4 3/8″ X 2″ & 2 pieces 4 3/8″ X 1 1/2″

3 assorted pieces credit card shaped 2 1/4″ X 3 1/2″

1 piece 3/4″ X 3 1/2″ for the front


I hope you enjoyed my project!

cool dudes

I made this layout when I first started out with Close to my Heart 3 years ago. It has no patterned paper. I scored the cranberry cardstock & sanded it to show the white core. I love the white core of Close to my Hearts paper! The base of the page is stamped. I used the “Field Trip” alphabet to stamp “cool” in Indian Corn Blue, and the “Playful” (retired) alphabet to stamp “dudes” in Honey. I used a layout from “Reflections” (retired), and Dimensional Elements Letters for the title colored with Indian Corn Blue. I also edge distressed the Indian Corn Blue mats & the Outdoor Denim title strip for added dimension.

I love these pictures & how this page turned out. I often can’t find a patterned paper to go with my pictures & love that I can make my own with stamps that perfectly coordinates with my pictures:)
