Smile & Craft On

Smile & Craft on….if only this was the motto we could all live by!  I know my life is way less stressful when I am crafting…..yet crafting is the first thing that goes by the wayside when the going gets tough.  I think we should all turn that around and just craft on!  The world would truly be a better place!  My card was created based on the sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday.  Their sketches never disappoint and are a great starting point for your projects.  Here is the original sketch design-

My Smile & Craft On sentiment is from the new paper pack from Close To My Heart, by the same name, Craft On.  I have only used a few patterns from the pack on my card, the pack is filled with great papers that would work for many occasions.  The pack comes with 12 sheets of 6 double sided designs, with coordinating zip strips.  Here is a look at the complete set-

The Craft On Collection is filled with tons of coordinating goodies, from stamps and dies to complements and sequins.  The stamps and die collection are super cute!  I love how Close To My Heart continues the theme from the papers to the stamps and dies.  The coordinating possibilities are endless!  Here are some of my favorites from the Collection-

This Thin Cut set is adorable! I have seen some great crafty shadowboxes created with the set!

This is just a sampling of the items available in the Craft On Collection, you can view all of the new products in my online store.

My card was created with the following products by Close To My Heart:
