Love Is In The Air Blog Hop

Welcome to the Love is in the Air blog hop hosted by Paulette from Around the Block with Scrapalette! You should have arrived here from Tammy's blog. If you didn't, you can go to Around the Block with Scrapalette, start at the beginning of the hop and enter to win blog candy. Our projects are all about love and Valentine's Day.

Here are my projects, which are a heart shaped gift box and a Valentine's Day card.

I used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the gift box and card.  I used Fit to Page to cut each one of these.  I used K&Co Smitten specialty paper to cut the gift box, and used Art Philosophy to cut the background for the sentiment (2 inches) from Bazzill cardstock and used the Close To My Heart Celebration stamp set (part of the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy bundle) to stamp the sentiment.  I used cardstock from my stash to cut the base of the card, used Art Philosophy to cut out the heart (2 inches) from Bazzill cardstock and again used the Close To My Heart Celebration stamp set to stamp on the heart.  I also used American Craft glitter ribbon to tie around the card.

Thanks for hopping by and now hop to Amy's blog.
Here's the Blog List in case you get lost along your way.

Birthday Card using CTMH Products

My first project of 2012 is a birthday card using my Close To My Heart (CTMH) products.  Here is the card:

I used cardstock and patterned paper from the Sonoma Level 2 Paper Pack (item # X7143B); ribbon, ribbon slide, frame and brads are from the Olive Mini-Melody set (item #Z1489); stamp used on the outside of the card is from the Wonderful You stamp set and the stamps used on the inside of the card are from the Celebration stamp set, which is part of the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection (item #Z1686).

One of my goals this year is to really promote my CTMH business, so I'm planning to make a lot of projects using CTMH products to show customers some ideas.
