Oh YUM!!!  What a FUN stamp set!  I can’t wait to see what my other fellow consultants have created with this stamp set. J

If you have come here from Priscilla’s Blog, you are on the right path!


The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here HERE

Here is the card I created with this set…

I used the NEW Make It From Your Heart, volume 2 how-to book - pattern #28.  I’m SO EXCITED that we have a NEW how-to book!!

I LOVE how Close To My Heart’s cricut cartridges coordinate with MANY of our stamp sets!!!  How EASY - this makes it for us as we create!!! I used the Perfect Fit- Frames 2 stamp set to stamp my frame design…and I cut this gray shape at 2 1/2” using our Artiste Cricut cartridge. August SOTM_Laughing Lola_cupcake_card swap DSC_3002 - Copy
The wording (happy birthday) that I used on this card came from another BRAND NEW stamp set that is SURE to be a FAVORITE! J
This stamp set is called Holiday Tags…and you’ll want to make SURE to check out this new set!  I know it is one I will be using quite often!!! J
