Close to My Heart's 'It's the Little Things' Blog Hop



Welcome to Our November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop



If  you arrived here from Jilena's blog your on the right path.
If  you've just found our hop be assured that you will see all the artwork, since the hop is actually one big circle, but if you'd like to start at the beginning, want a list of all the blogs, or get lost visit Melinda's blog.






I made a quick favor box to give to guest at Thanksgiving or any occasion.  This could be a gift with some chocolates, lip balm or ? in it for colleagues at the office or friends and family at the table. 
This is very quick to make and a large assortment of  these bags can be done in an afternoon.  As we enter the Holiday Season our free time is limited, so we need faster, simpler, easier.  

 I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge, Gold Shimmer Trim, Saddle exclusive ink, Neutral Metallic Bakers Twine, a piece of B&T from the Pathfinding paper pack, and It's the Little Things SOTM. 


Now I need to decide if I like it with or with out the ribbon on the handle.  
 Without Ribbon
With Ribbon

These is a box I created back in August for the New product blog hop, but that I did not use.  It was sitting in the closet undecorated.  I stamped a ton of flowers with 9 different inks and 5 different colors of  cardstock.  What I picked is a stylized version and all of it is scraps destined for the pail, but saved in a midnight fit of insomnia. 


Happy Halloween!

Close to My Heart Consultants ShinHan Marker Hop


Welcome to our Blog Hop!

Today we are featuring the New ShinHan Art Markers that debuted with the Annual Inspirations this August.  The ShinHan Art Marker is an Alcohol marker that is made in Korea.   I happen to like Korean goods and find that they make quality items for artists, so I was happy to discover that Close to My Heart decided to carry the ShinHan Twin Touch when I was at the N. American Convention this Summer.

 I'm thinking about Christmas, and I'm excited that we will be having Christmas in our new home.  I'm trying to convince everyone that 3 trees is still not enough!

I made a Christmas card it's simple and a great starting point for a beginner, which I am.  I'm not the best when it comes to coloring with markers, but I don't practice much which is something I'm working on remedying....finishing the craft room is the first on my list.

I used a retired stamp set, sorry, Season's Tweetings C1569.  It has a great wreath that I thought would be great to color with the ShinHan markers. I used New England Ivy, & Cranberry Cardstock, White Daisy card base, Shimmer Trim in Gold & Red, Archival Black, New England Ivy, and Cranberry Exclusive Inks.  I hope you like my simple card. 

In my family we're all fans of multicolored lights & Ornaments.
