I have been waiting to play with this kit!  It is so much fun.  This is a special sneak preview from the Spring/Summer catalogue from Close to my Heart coming in February, that you can get NOW with a qualifying purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 from the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book, you can get two valuable new products for just $15: the My Creations® Collage Cubes (a Spring/Summer 2012 sneak-peek product!) and the exclusive My Acrylix® Rock the Block E-size stamp set (available only during this promotion).

I decorated the bottom of the tray :)
This should be lots of fun for us all to play with, especially my grandkiddies.

Inspiration equals creation



I spotted this card via pininterest and that someone had put on it create with CTMH and I had to look closer at the original to confirm that it was not already CTMH stamps.  Since it was not, the challenge was on for me to recreate this card using Close to my Heart products. :)


Now here is my version, lots of fun to create: 




Thankful that I have a good collection of stamps to choose from to create this.  I only used cardstock and three colours of inks, cocoa, chocolate and bamboo.  Five different stamps sets, Glory to God, Everlasting life, Holiday trinkets, Holiday wishes and Canadian celebration.  I also used our exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the ticket shapes at 1 1/2 inches for the base to my images, so nice to easily cut out the shape needed for my card.
