How Do You Use It?

Good Morning Crafters!

I have had a number of questions asked about how to use our Versamat as well as our new All Purpose Mat.  Above our pictures of each product.

Now, I was going to create a video for you to demonstrate what these products are and how you can use them BUT I saw that Close to My Heart has ALREADY created one for us!  Why reinvent the wheel I asked myself ????

Soooo, without further ado, please view the video below to see how to use these really awesome products exclusively available through Close to My Heart:

Doesn't that just explain it perfectly?

Favorite Stamp Set ... For Now

Good Morning Crafters!!

This morning I come to you again from Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog!  This week our challenge was ... wait for it ... USE YOUR FAVORITE STAMP SET!  What ???  You would think that would be easy - it was not.  SOOOO, I chose my favorite stamp set ... right now:

Here is what I made:

Aren't they cute???  I just love these little treat bags that I made.  Here are close ups of the bags:

I thought these would be fun to give out at Halloween to the kids in our children's class at the dojo (school) where I teach Aikido (Aikido of Escondido).  I will probably put some candy inside for them with a note.

I also thought they would be perfect for gift cards as well - just a fun way to say "thank you" or "thinking of you" at Halloween, you know?

I used some white treat bags that we used to sell -- I bought a TON of them before they were permanently retired and plan on using them for many different holidays.  They measure a little over 3" x 4".

I used our Scaredy Cat paper on the bags as well as the Frightfully Fun stamp set I mentioned earlier.

Now though the stamp set does not "officially" coordinate with our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge, I did use that cartridge to cut out the shapes I stamped on.  You can find the image on page 77, E7, Card, < Hallween > cut at 1 1/2" and 1 3/4".


I hope you enjoyed today's project.  Please check out my fellow Design Team Members' creations as well by clicking here.  Can't wait to see what YOU create wirh YOUR favorite Close to My Heart stamp set.

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
