This month – CTMH has a FABULOUS special that includes the My Crush product line!!J

I wanted to use our My Crush Assortment pack in a different way, so this is what I came up with. 

In this card, I used pieces from the My Crush MEMORIES assortment….take a look.
I used 2 pieces from the assortment pack, an arrow (from the sticker sheet) and the “Love This” stamp set (that you can get FREE this month!)

Can you see how I cut apart (yes I cut it apart...ahh! LOL!J) the 2 cards from the assortment pack?

The tag was cut out…and then I used the blue & purple chevron strips as accents.  I cut off the word “currently” on the next assortment card & layered that under the green tag.

I took the “arrow” sticker – and cut it into 3 pieces….giving it a bit more dimension.
Then I added some embellishments – thistle extra thick twine, white shimmer trim & some clear sparkles.  J

Come back in the next few days to learn details on the other TWO cards I created using the My Crush Assortment pieces.
