Close To My Heart June Specials

Hey everyone!  Just thought I'd share all the fun things that are going on in June.

First, June's Stamp of the Month.  In case you aren't familiar with the Stamp Of The Month program (SOTM) here's how it works: Place any order of $50 or more to qualify and get a D size stamp set (value of $19.75) for only $5

Second: Summer Crush. What the heck is that right?! Well, During the month of June, when you purchase any My Crush™ book and its accompanying assortment pictured in Annual Inspirations 2014–2015, you will receive the coordinating stamp set FREE! That is a savings of at least $10.95!

There are five lovely My Crush book offerings to choose from that will provide a swoon-worthy background for your favorite memories. From family reunions to camping adventures to holiday countdowns—and much more—you will be crushing on all these books and the possibilities they provide. Every My Crush book features a hard cover with wire binding and cardstock-weight pages that are printed with eye-catching designs to form the perfect bases for your memory keeping. Additionally, each My Crush book also features unique details—from glossy print, to vellum pages, to gold foil, to ink-resistant patterns—that make displaying your personality easier than ever. Plus, once you add the artistry of the coordinating assortments featuring sticker sheets, envelopes, alphabets, cards, and journaling spots, along with your free stamp set, you will be well on your way to your own gorgeous mini book creation! This offer is only available while supplies last and once they’re gone, these books are gone for good, so put your orders in early to get your summer romance rolling today!
Note: Due to popular demand, the My Crush® In the Pink Clips (Z2048) will be substituted for the My Crush® In the Pink Assortment (Z2042) for the duration of this campaign.

Kraftin Kimmie Magical Krafty Krop

Nothing like a big Kraftin Kimmie challenge to get me back into kreating.  Apparently between going back to work, moving, summer being beautiful and just over all perhaps being a little lazy, there has been small amounts of crafting done and no blogging what so ever.  Time to get my butt into gear, right?!

A huge thanks to Kim and all her Krafty Girls for hosting multiple challenges from their live krop.  If only I lived in Ontario!

So to kick things off..... Here are my entries for 5 of the 6 Magial Krafty Krop Challenges.  I just couldn't get something going that I was happy with for the first challenge which was BINGO!!! I usually really like bingo challenges, but sadly I ran out of time with this one :(

Next up was Challenge #2!! Falling into Fall!!
I used the sweetly sleeping Little Boy Blue for my fall card.  He's coloured with the ShinHan TwinTouch markers from Close To My Heart.  It was my first time using them.  I coloured something else using both the ShinHan and Copic markers.  I must say they blend very nicely together. The nib end takes some getting used to, but over all I like them.  Everything except Little Boy Blue is from Close To My Heart.

Had to include a few leaves inside, just to keep the fall theme going ;)

Then there was Challenge #3!!! CHRISTMAS!

I used a silver shimmer mist for these lovely feathers.  I think it's safe to say, almost everything, myself included, had a silver mist for days!

I cut snowflakes using both the Artiste and Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridges and put the "leftover" one inside.

Followed by Challenge #4!! Pretty in PINK!! Because what is a Kraftin Kimmie event without a pink challenge ;)  I think Sophia is my favourite! I tried for a bit of a washed out look on this one... the purple version I did looks better I think, but only because I have a very grey toned purple vs a grey toned pink.... is there even such a thing?  One day I'll use that one and you'll see what I mean.  Maybe ;)

Next was Challenge #5!! HALLOWEEN!!  You would think given the time of year, this would be easy right.... WRONG!! I learned, much to my surprise, I have absolutely nothing Halloween themed in my stash! I searched forever for anything orange and found the only piece of orange paper I had.  If it wasn't for my new ShinHan TwinTouch markers from Close To My Heart, I wouldn't have even had anything orange to colour Tabitha with.  Clearly, this needs to be rectified!

Despite all the challenges coming up with the materials and a plan for this one, it's one of my favourite from this group.

How could I not silver shimmer/glimmer mist these adorable little bats!  Round 2 of a fewer number of things being covered in silver! I'm such a messy crafter!

And the inside.  It's nice to have somewhere to write on all that black cardstock!

And finally, Challenge #6!! Clean and Simple!
One sheet out of a chalkboard stack, one embossed stamp and one embossed saying, popped up the reverse side from a piece trimmed off the base.

I will be entering each of these cards in their respective Kraftin Kimmie Magical Kraft Krop Challenge.

That's all for today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Eeeek! Gotta Get My Kreating Butt in Gear!

Wow! Time really flies! Gotta get those kreative juices flowing ;)  I've been spending my time hanging out with the nekids and not getting crafty! 
What/Who are the nekids.... Our rescued Xoloitzcuintli of course!  aka Mexican Hairless dogs ;)  They are the best snuggle bugs and have such personalities!  Wanna meet them?  Ok, here they are:

Abilene (Abby, or Whiz (cuz she has personality like Cheese Whiz!))

Chavela (usally just Vella)

And now for this weeks kreation!  The challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie's is Pretty in Pink, so as a jumping off point, here's Sophia coloured in Copics on her pink card!

Keeping with the pink theme, and added some butterflies (still luving the embosslit from Stampin' Up!) and a little sparkle on her shawl and glass as well as the pink sparkle ribbon and the sparkly hearts on the light pink ribbon. I luv luv luv damask patterns so I couldn't resist using a piece of damask paper on this cutie.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Kraftin' Kimmie - Challenge 222 - Pretty in Pink
Creative Knockouts #29 - Things With Wings
