Life is Tweet - June Stamp of the Month

I love this whimsical stamp set available from Close To My Heart for the month of June.  It makes me happy.  You can get this set for just Five Bucks when you make a $50 purchase.  Check out some of the artwork below created by a few of my friends and myself.

My Superhero

Here's my little Superhero.  This was a couple of years ago when he was graduating from preschool.  Now he is just about to finish first grade.  Where does the time go?  I'm so glad Close To My Heart created this Superhero paper pack along with the coordinating Comic Badge Buttons.  They are SUPER for preserving memories of the man in your life, no matter what age he is.  I added the Baker's Twine from the neutral assortment and Dimensional Elements Starts & Alphabet.

This layout is for the other man in my life, my husband.  I just need to get the photos printed.  Hopefully that won't take me too long.  *sigh*  These pages were created using a pattern from the uber talented Tresa Black. I love the banner which was so easy to do with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (also used for the journaling tag).

Have a memorable day,

Footloose and Fancy Free

My family loves the beach and I love scrapbooking pictures of them at the beach.  These photos were taken a few years ago, and I'm relieved to finally have them on pages ready for the albums.
I used the Close To My Heart FOOTLOOSE workshop kit on page 43 of the Spring Summer Idea Book.  The stamp set that comes with the kit is so cute, as are the other stamp sets shown on pages 41 & 42 that complement this kit.  I added the Sorbet colored cardstock to kick it up a notch.  Now I have to go plan another trip to the beach.

May Stamp of the Month Friendship Bouquet

I'm a little late posting my artwork for this month's exclusive stamp set, Friendship Bouquet. I hope you like the sample below.  I stamped the large flower image on patterned paper from the Dotty For You paper collection, available from CTMH through the end of this month.  Why not treat yourself to both, while supplies last.

Have a memorable day,
