I am REALLY enjoying the NEW Skylark paper pack, and used that paper collection with my creation today!

I am AMAZED at our new 5x7 Embossing Folders
and how much detail they can add to a creation, with just a touch!! 

I am creating pages that will fit on our Flip Album stand.  This stand can be used for so many creations!

The thing I love the most about
Close To My Heart’s Embossing Folders, is that they come in the LARGER 5x7 size AND what’s even better….

you can emboss up to  a 4” x 12” piece of cardstock!!  A perfect length to add to any scrapbook page, or add to your card creations!  Yay for possibilities!!

Take a peek at a few close-ups…See the detail that the dot embossing folder brings to this page!

I’ve had some fun adding charms to my papercraft creations.  Here I used the rhinestone charm, but you can use these fun accents in a variety of ways!

I also am enjoying using the NEW white marquee shapes!  Incorporate these shapes with some baker’s twine, washi tape & shimmer trim - and you have some beautiful additions to make your creation shine! J
