DAY 16: Welcome to my blog, and to Day 16 of me blogging every day since October 1st!

Today’s featured card includes supplies from Close to My Heart. I had a lot of leftover paper after making cards with the Workshops on the Go® Laughing Lola Cardmaking Kit and used some of the scraps to make this card for a sweet friend.

Hapy Birthday, LolaI started with a folded card made from White Daisy cardstock, then added pieces of left over paper from the Lola paper packet. I cut some flower shapes in various sizes with my Cricut Expression and the cartridge from my Close to My Heart Cricut® Artbooking Collection. Then I used the birthday sentiment from the Joyful Birthday stamp set and stamped it onto a shape cut with the Cricut. I added the border and attached it to my card with double sided foam adhesive. I added a few gems and floral embellishments from Base & Bling Teal Jewels and Base & Bling Floral Accents.

Finally, I used some Stickles glitter glue to line the frame and add some sparkly touches to the card.

Well, Happy Birthday to you!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.
