Confetti Wishes Sneak Peek!

It seems only fitting that my first project be based on Mojo Monday....because it has certainly taken me a long time finding my crafting mojo!  A box of new products certainly helps boost your crafting mojo!  Consider this a sneak peek of some of the new products to come in the upcoming Close To My Heart catalog.  My card is based on the sketch this week at Mojo Monday-

I created my card with the new Confetti Wishes paper pack.  I just love the bright colors, and speaking of colors....Close To My Heart has added new colors to the color palette!  My card features two new comers, Canary and Thistle.  More new colors to come!

I am a huge fan of layers, which makes Mojo Monday so much fun to play with, as layers are always in style! In addition to layering my banners, I added texture to my banners by stamping them with the Geometric Banners stamp set.

I added a fussy cut border on the inside of the card using an additional pattern from the Confetti Wishes paper pack.  The sentiments on the front and inside of my card are from the new B1467 You Mean the World to Me stamp set.  This is a super cute set of four sentiments.  The set will be available to order on August 1, 2014.

Free Stamps in July!

Wow, hard to believe I have been away from active blogging for almost a year. I have so missed crafting and checking out everyone's blogs.  As many of you know, I made the decision to leave an abusive relationship last year. Fast forward a year, and the divorce is still in process.  The past year has brought many ups and downs.  I am finally getting settled into my new place, which thankfully does come with a craft room!  I have so many things to be thankful for as I start my new journey in life.  I look forward to getting my new craft room organized and re-joining the crafting world.  To celebrate my return to blogland, I am offering a free stamp set with all retail orders placed in the month of July, 2014.  Your stamp set will be chosen at random and will be shipped separately from your Close To My Heart order.  This special is only valid for orders placed through my online store or via e-mail. Be sure and join in on the July Mystery Hostess Gathering if you are placing an online order!

I am working on updating the links on my blog.  I have changed the name of my online store through Close To My Heart as well as my e-mail address.  If you are viewing previous projects, sadly many of the links will no longer work.  Considering the vast amount of projects listed, I will not be able to update all of the links.  If you come across a project that you need help locating the supplies for, please contact me.

Thanks to everyone for your many e-mails and continued support!  Your concern is greatly appreciated.
