You Brighten My Day

This is my very very late sample for sketch #430 of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  But I'm going to link you up to it anyway because it's just so darn fun to play along!  Check it out here

You still have a few days to play along with this sketch. It's a good one, right? 

And if you feel like the time is too close, then do the next one. To be honest, you don't even have to do a current one because all the sketches are great whenever you need inspiration for a card. 

Here are the items I used to put together my card. If you like them please consider ordering from me. I appreciate your purchase and you'll love the products! All items are available at the time of this post while supplies last. (Product numbers are links to the item)

Wander Shaker Card Samples

Just a quick post today to share the awesomeness of the shaker version of the Close To My Heart Wander cards from the Wander Cardmaking Kit.  How can you even resist these?  

The kit does not include supplies or directions to make the cards into shakers. I wish I had thought of this idea but it was shared with me by another CTMH Maker, Andrea Mahaffey. 

If you would like to make these along with me (in my virtual live class online) all the information is in my previous blog post, here, for convenience. 

I hope you will join me!

Close To My Heart Wander Cardmaking Workshop

These four great cards are from the new Close To My Heart Wander Cardmaking Kit,. The kit includes all the paper supplies, stamps, and die cuts for 16 cards, (four of each design).

Here's my video of the kit.  I'm just getting started with my YouTube channel so please bare with me as I improve. 

Purchase your kit and join me online for prep and assembly. My prep video will be posted prior to the workshop date. If you are unable to join me via Facebook Live, the video will remain online in Betsy’s Paper Craft Room and also posted to my YouTube account afterwards.

BONUS! When you purchase the kit I will send you supplies to make two of the cards into shaker cards. These cards are definitely shaker candidates and you will love the upgrade!
