Altered Notebook in Clementine

SO I found these little notebooks on clearance a while back and am just now getting around to doing something with them!  They are 4 x 5 3/4, so the PERFECT size to find a card pattern for.  I found this card pattern in the Make it from your Heart book that CTMH released with the new Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.  If you have NOT seen this book YET....I HIGHLY encourage to check it out!!  In fact...here is the link to it on my website....go ahead, CHECK IT OUT!!!

ANYHOO....On to the sweet little notebook....I used my FAVORITE papers from Clementine and my new FAVORITE stamp set Pun Fun.  As you can see, I paper pieced the cupcake and topped it with Liquid Applique and Prisma Glitter.

I can't wait to get back to my shop and make up a few more of these!  These make GREAT little gifts!! PLUS I love me some notebooks!  I am always filling notebooks up with ideas, lists, and notes that I don't want to forget.  This is the PERFECT size to keep in my small purse as they don't take up much space at all!

Well, thanks AGAIN AND AGAIN for stopping by!!!  

I hope that this has inspired you to get out those clearance notebooks that you JUST HAD TO HAVE 2 years ago and have not done anything with yet!  LOL or head on over to the closest store and check out their notebooks...you never know, they may have some on clearance as well!!  

Happy Stamping and Scrapping!!!

Another Card using Moonlight!

HAPPY SATURDAY!!!  I am sitting outside on my deck, overlooking the lake and soaking in the GORGEOUS Saturday morning weather.  I plan on spending as much time as I can OUTSIDE this weekend!!!  It is hard to believe that we are already at the beginning of SEPTEMBER!!!  OH MY GOODNESS where did the SUMMER go??  This time of year is always bittersweet for me.  I LOVE the Fall and the cooling temps, BUT I DISLIKE the COLD in the winter and I have a feeling that we are in for a long, cold, miserable winter.  THANK GOODNESS I have paper crafting to keep me busy...otherwise I think I would go CRAZY!

WHEW....I am done ranting now!  LOL  ONTO the card...

I am SO STINKING excited to share this card with you all.  NOT because it is the CUTEST card I have EVER created, BUT because this was my FIRST Creativity in Motion TEAM swap!!!  We had 8, yes 8 girls on my team that participated in the first month's swap!  And let me tell you, they are some STINKING TALENTED girls!!  I am SO blessed to have such a great group of girls on my team!!!!!

I will share my card first, then I will share EVERYONE'S swaps over the next couple of days....

SO when we were swapping our creations, as my card was passed around, everyone mentioned how HEAVY it was!  LOL  Yeah, I guess I got a bit carried away with the layers of paper!  There are 6 layers of paper, then the sprial thingy on the top plus the cardstock circle and flower on the top of that.  OH not to mention the layer of Tulle....I guess I just could not help myself.  Each layer complimented the other and I don't think it would have turned out at cute with out each of the complimenting colors!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest creation!!  

I hope that this has inspired you to add a few extra layers to your card patterns!  HAHA  Might not want to mail it though...might cost you a small fortune! 

One more thing....If you are thinking about joining Close to my Heart, I would LOVE to have you on my team!!!  In August alone, we welcomed 6 new girls to Creativity in Motion and I tell you what, we are REALLY setting things in motion and moving forward!!  Join us on this AMAZING ride!!

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!!
