Elephant Baby Card with Georgie

I have to tell you that I think that the new Georgie collection from Close To My Heart is fabulous!  It is so fun and versatile.  What do I mean by versatile?  The colors and patterns in this collection can be used for boys and girls.  This is wonderful when you are making something for that friend who doesn't plan to find out if they are having a boy or a girl.  However, it can still be used when you know exactly what you are planning for as seen with this card for a special little girl.  Add some watercolors and you have a perfect combination for your new arrival.

Here's what you will need to recreate this card:
Georgie Paper Packet
Georgie Complements
Georgie Assortment
Close To My Heart Watercolor Paints or Watercolor Pencils 
Inkadinkadoo "Welcome Baby" stamp set

This little bit from the complements packet is a cute addition to the inside of the card, don't you think?

Damask Diva Bloghop - "Sangria" Planner Pages

I am so excited to be participating in my first ever Damask Diva blog hop.  If you are following along and came from Melissa, you are in the right place.  If not, be sure to head over to Jennifer's blog to start at the beginning by clicking here.

This month we are featuring the Sangria collection from Close To My Heart.  The colors in this kit make it perfect for Fall papercrafting.  I think there will be some fabulous thank you cards from this collection.  However, I wanted to use it to spice up a week in my Filofax.

Now I typically decorate only slightly so that my planner pages are fun but still remain functional.  After all, if a planner isn't useful for planning, its not what I need right now.  This week however, will be a bit more decorated but still with plenty of room to keep organized.

To start with I grabbed my planner pages from my Filofax and sponged them with Eggplant, Champagne and Poppy Exclusive Inks.  This created a warm base for my decorating.  You can get t…
