Confetti Wishes Card #1

I recently posted one of the cards we made in our workshop club.  Today I am going to show you the first in that set.  Now I didn't make this one up as it was designed by Close to My Heart.  It is pretty.

End of the Month Close to my Heart Specials

Can you believe that August is nearly over?  Kids across the country are settling into school and life is falling back into that school time routine.  Now is the perfect time for some crafting!  At the beginning of the month, I set some very specific Close to my Heart goals and I am so close to meeting those, but still have a little way to go.  To help meet those goals, I have decided to have a special.  Here's how it will work:

Start by going to my online business office here.  Join the "New Product Gathering" and begin shopping.  Here's the best part:

Spend $25 before tax and shipping and receive any "M" sized stamp absolutely free!
OR
Spend $50 before tax and shipping and receive any "A" sized stamp absolutely free!!
OR
Spend $75 before tax and shipping and receive any "B" sized stamp set OR My Reflections paper pack absolutely free!!!

Please do not add your free item to your cart.  After you have placed your order, simply email me at djssundries@gmail.com and tell me what you would like to receive free and I will have it sent directly to you.

Don't forget that the Picture My Life special from Close to my Heart is still going on as well.  Purchase any Picture my Life kit at the regular price, and you will see the option to purchase an extra package of page protectors for just $3.  That's a savings of $6.95.  I took advantage of this spectacular deal and hope you will too.

Heritage Car Birthday Card

My dad recently celebrated a birthday and I wanted to make  fun card for him.  I also wanted to play with my new Cricut Explore a bit, and this card was perfect for it.


I pulled out some paper that came with the Explore for the car and went into the Heritage cartridge for this old thing.


I also used:
Close to my Heart - Timberline Paper (retired), Just a number stamp set (retired), durables triangle studs, Lagoon Exclusives cardstock
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Foam tape

Confetti Wishes Card

Top-o-the- morning to you.  I trust you are having a great day.  I wanted to share this card that I designed using the Confetti Wishes paper pack from Close to my Heart.  This is one of the bonus cards available in my workshop clubs.  This was so fun to make and I think it may have been everyone's favorite.


I used 2 different techniques on the background paper - tone-on-tone and heat embossing.  Though I don't have Close to my Heart embossing tools or powders or gold shimmer tape, you can find them at my Close to my Heart store here.  I also used the following:
Confetti Wishes paper
Lagoon cardstock and Ink pad
White Daisy cardstock
Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge
Lovely Birthday stamp set



















Have you thought about joining a club?  I think you will be glad you did.

Bath Tote

It's hard to believe, but our oldest child will soon be headed to college.  I'm not sure we are ready for that, but ready or not, it's coming.  She picked up a large plastic tote to carry bath items from her dorm room to the bathroom.  It's super fun, but I thought we could kick it up a bit.  I grabbed the Close to my Heart Artbooking Cartridge, some vinyl that was made by Cricut, and went to work.  I also used a cursive letter font that came as part of the free ones allowed by Cricut.  This project was pretty simple and I know my daughter will like it.
