Welcome to the Blog Hop. . .

So glad you joined in on the fun!!! If you are just starting out. . .here is how the Blog Hop works. . .

Several Close to My Heart Consultants joined together to put on a Blog Hop! They have been working hard creating beautiful artwork showcasing some of the brand new products you will find in the Summer Idea Book!!! Once you browse through the artwork I have posted, then Click on the link at the bottom of this post. This will take you on to the next blog and to see more artwork!!! Keep clicking the links and browsing around! If you ever get lost. . .I am posting the participating blogs at the very bottom of the page! Just come back here and find a new blog to hop on to!!!! Now for the fun stuff. . .

Here are some of the things I have been working on. . .

Here is a view of the 3x3 1/2 card up close. I used the Robot Power Stamp Set, Field Trip Alphabet, Tinkerin Scrapbooking Kit, Clear Buttons, Tulip Ink, Clover Meadow ink, Sunny Yellow ink, and Twilight ink for this card. Sorry the picture is a bit blurry!

Here is the gift box I made. I used one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. I found the directions for this off of Split Coast Stampers, but I would be happy to share with you!! Products used were the Tinkerin Kit, Happy Birthday Stamp Set, Red Craft Button, White Daisy Grosgrain RIbbon, Black ink.

I decided to go ahead and share this with you even though it is a work in progress. I have wanted to do a mini-album about all of the cute things my little guy says. He is 4 and loves to invent his own way of saying things. I believe he gets this trait from my Mother, because she is always calling things by the wrong name. ANYWAY. . .I was so excited when I saw the new 3 ring mini-albums from CTMH!! I knew it would be perfect! So far, I have documented Canmote=remote. . .condrections=directions, goad rader=road grader, increbidle=incredible, and hopicopter=helicopter. I plan on sharing this album in its entirety just as soon as I get it finished!!!

Here is another gift box. . . this one is using Crystal Blue Cardstock, the Tickled Pink Stamp set, Say it in Style Stamp set, Black ink, Blush ink, and Crystal Blue ink. This is one of the projects my Sunday Scrappers Club completed at their last meeting!

Another card. . . I used paper from the Unforgettable Kit (new in the Spring Idea Book) but I just had to share! This one was actually made by one of my Club members. She accidentally picked mine up and took it home. . . but they look very similar! I really don't know how she could tell!!! Anyway, I found this pattern on Split Coast Stampers as well. I used Unforgettable Kit, Aspiration Stamp Set, Sorbet ink, Blush ink, and Chocolate ink. The flowers pull out to reveal a place to write your message!

And another Club Card. . . I used the Stamp set from the Tickled Pink kit, white daisy cardstock, crystal blue cardstock, crystal blue ink, Blush ink, and white daisy ribbon. The measurements are 5 x12. Score at the 4 inch and 8 inch mark. Cut the outside panels in half. Adhere paper to front. Fold and adhere sides in. Make a card for center!!! Done! Very easy to do and this can be used so many different ways!!! Let me know if you need further instructions!!!

This is another Card my Club completed at their last meeting. I used the Money holder template from the Originals book, Sonata Paper Pack, Liquid Glass, Prisma Glitter, Chocolate ink, For every occasion stamp set.

I hope you have enjoyed your hop on my blog!!

These projects are so cute. I love the idea of a little book of ism's kids to say the dardist things.

Sheila Bennett said...

That robot is just too adorable! And what font is the "HI" from?

Meredith Burgess said...

Thanks ladies! The Hi is from the new Field Trip alphabet. . .I guess I need to post that too! I stayed up too late to post this stuff. . . thanks again for the comments! I love to know that people actually looked at my stuff!!!

Helen Onulak said...

I love the Bradyisms album idea. It's a great idea to capture all the little things our kids say, for all too soon, they are all grown up!

I love the idea of the mini book to record your little one's sayings!!! I may have to do that too :) It would be fun to do that for my 3 year old even- he says the funniest stuff!
