When I started my Facebook page,, I was hoping to quickly get to 25 “likes” so I could get that nice clean URL. My 25th liker was someone I did not know, and I thought it would be fun to make her a thank you card! She agreed to give me her address and I mailed off this custom card made just for her.


I used Cosmo Cricket’s adorable Garden Variety paper to create the card, a gorgeous Prima flower, Ribbon, red glitter glue, hand stitching using my Sew Easy tool from We R Memory Keepers and a stamp that matched the paper I used.

Needless to say, the card recipient was surprised to receive her card. Thank you for reading my blog! 🙂

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
