Jack Blog Hop

Welcome to our Jack Blog Hop! We will be showcasing items from our Jack Paper Pack with various projects created by talented Close to my Heart consultants. 

I created this simple card using papers from the Jack paper pack (X7222B - $9.95 US). I also used the Basic Banners Thin Cuts (Z3345 - $12.95 US) and Banner Love stamp set (B1572 - $9.95 US) from the 2017-18 Annual Inspirations book, black ink pad (Z2805 - $7.95 US) with a little bit of black shimmer trim (Z1809 - $4.95 US) and Whisper extra thick twine (Z3095 - $3.95 US) and a few of our ShinHan markers to color in the hearts.

The card was easy to make and the banners add a touch of movement to keep the card from being flat.

I hope you enjoyed my card. To see more great art, continue on this blog hop. If you are visiting from Martha’s blog then you are on the right track, if not please start at the CTMH Blog Challenge and Support Group Blog Hop Guidelines beginning with our hostess Carol. Next check out Gerri’s blog.

Back to School Card using the August stamp of the month

It's about that go back to school! We are just a few weeks away from it here. In the meantime, we have a great stamp of the month to celebrate. It includes great images for your first and last day of school photos, and plenty of in-between events. Before I make my page (I'm waiting to get those photos first), I made a card I'll be able to include with a teacher gift at Meet the Teacher night.

The August Stamp of the Month is only available August 1-31, 2017. The order number is S1708 and it is $17.95 or you can get it for just $5 when you place an order of $50 or more on my site!

Today, August 1, was launch day for the new Annual Inspirations. There are plenty of new goodies to choose from. Also, the Seasonal Expressions May-August issue is still live. But if you love a sale, there will be bundles of retired product all month long available while supplies last. New specials are announced on the website every Tuesday.

What are you waiting for? Visit now to get your hands on lots of scrapbooking and stamping goodies.

Thanks for stopping by.
