I love Close to My Heart’s Workshop on the Go Kits because it’s a fun way to get a whole paper pack plus some embellishments and exclusive acrylic stamps that are not found in the catalog. One of the best things about these kits is the instructions and pictures of finished scrapbook pages and cards made with the paper pack.

Here is one of the cards I made from the Stella Workshop on the Go [update: this paper pack and Workshop are now retired]. For nearly all of my life I’d ignored stamps with sweet sentiments like this because they weren’t “me” and I didn’t feel that way about anyone. I feel very thankful to have someone in my life to “chairish” now! 🙂

If you look closely at the lacy orange part of the card, that’s actually the top of the chair I stamped repeatedly and then hand cut in a scallop shape.

I worked with what I had and followed the instructions and created this card. I used some clear rhinestones from my stash and used a Copic marker to shade them the right color for my card. I enjoyed making this card and I love the color scheme of the Stella paper pack. Here is a close up on the sentiment:

CTMH - I "Chairish" You

Thanks for reading my blog, and if you have any questions about this kit or how to make the card, just let me know.

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.

  2. Stephanie, this is your adopted Nashville Mother….. can I buy any of your cards? I truly have looked and cannot find this answer, but remember I am not very tech savvy:)

    • You’re so sweet, Karen! 🙂 I don’t sell my cards. What do you need? How many do you need? We may be able to work something out.

      • Stephanie, I just love giving cards, and I thought if you sold them I would buy some…. I will just enjoy looking at yours on the blog……

        Hope you and Dale are doing great……
