Close To My Heart and City Sidewalks

Well, the time has come to post another example of CTMH's City Sidewalks paper packets.  This is a fun and very useable Holiday packet that is available in the Seasonal Expressions II mini Idea Book.  I like the fact that it features not only Willow (one of the new colors) but also features Cranberry.  Cranberry has been a mainstay color since before I became a consultant.  City Sidewalks even has a coordinating Cricut Cartridge!

 To complete this card, I used 2 of the patterns included I the paper packet.  By the way, the product number of City Sidewalks is X7213B.  "Joy" can be found in the stamp set called Very Merry (D1694.)  Look at the tree...don't you love it!  It is from the coordinating Cricut Cartridge.  The images match the papers.
The possibilities with CTMH never end!  Did I mention that the new 2017 Planner has been released?!?  I don't have mine yet, but it is on order.  Stop by my website to see the planner and to check out City Sidewalks for your self.  Also, don't forget to check out my friend Karen's Blog for even more CTMH inspiration.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

Close To My Heart City Sidewalks

I am sorry that I am a day or so late with my post.  I participated in a craft fair at my Community.  I had a table last year so when the opportunity came up again this year, it had to be done.  But, I will tell you that having a table is a lot of preparation work. 

Before I share a picture of the table, let's talk Close To My Heart...

This month, Karen and I have decided to highlight City Sidewalks (X7213B.)  This is a colorful paper packet that features of CTMH's new colors.  CTMH came up with a great idea this year...they have a separate package of the featured colored cardstock.  This gives you the opportunity to have extra sheets to make more cards and scrapbook layouts.  The City Sidewalks packet includes 12 sheets... 3 each of Cranberry, Lagoon, Peacock and Willow. 

If you look closely at the background word search papers, you will find Christmas words...what fun.  Anyway, Karen and I also decided to feature a new stamp set called "Very Merry" (D1694.)  Not only does it have sentiments that work perfectly for the outside, but it also has great sentiments for the inside of your cards.  By the way, the Christmas Tree is cut out using the new CTMH Cricut Cartridge called Flower Market (Z3285.) 

As I mentioned earlier, I did a craft fair this weekend.  This is my table.  Many of the items I sold were items that had been made at the craft class that I teach here at the Community.  Of course I always have my cards and my scrapbooks.

I love to make Christmas Cards.  This year, Close To My Heart has two wonderful paper packets to make those cards with.  Next month, Karen and I will be featuring the other one...I shall keep you in suspense.  Don't forget to stop by Karen's Blog for more samples of artwork using City Sidewalks.  Also, don't forget to stop by my website for more information or to purchase your set of City Sidewalks.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
