August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Wow, I can't believe August is already upon us! The summer is certainly flying by!
I am so glad you could join me for this month's blog hop.  For August, the set is called "Baroque Borders" and is a set of 5 stamps. If you are coming from Dawn's blog, you are on the right track. It's okay if you are starting here; just be sure to complete the circle so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects my fellow consultants have created.

Here is the card I made this month:

And, here is the inside:

I used B&T paper from the Florentine paper pack which is still available in the new Idea Book. The card base is Colonial White which I random stamped in second generation Creme Brulee. I also used one of the larger stamps to do some tone on tone stamping inside of the B&T. The front panel was stamped in Olive and Twilight and tied with some tinted Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon. The sentiment stamps are from "A Little Thanks".

Thanks again for stopping by. Now hop along to Georgia's blog to enjoy more projects featuring this versatile stamp set. Don't forget "Baroque Borders" will only be available for the month of August. Contact your consultant or go here to order yours today.

The Party's Over....

Wow, I can't believe that Convention has come to a close. What an amazing, information packed, fun filled three days it was! It is always so inspiring to be surrounded by so many talented and creative people. Close to my Heart is introducing some amazing new products, new on trend colors, and beautiful new papers. My two favorite new products are the new "Artiste" Cricut cartridge and the new alcohol markers. I can't wait to play with these and to share them with all of you.
Talk to me about joining my team if you would like to experience the fun and excitement of Convention next year, being held in the beautiful Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World!

Amazing New Products

Day one at convention did not disappoint! You could feel the excitement in the air. New products and programs were introduced during entertaining skits with a Dallas twist.
And, of course the highlight of the day was the debut of the new Idea Book!

Close to my Heart Convention

After a bright and early start, I've arrived in Dallas for convention. Will be heading out shortly to explore the hotel and go to registration. Team meeting will be later this evening. I hope we get some hints of some of the exciting news we will be hearing in the next few days. Keep watching for more updates.
