Thinking of You…

I had a chance to play with my new Sneak Peek products tonight! Ohh, the anticipation of it all!  I just love how this card came together and how the products flow together so well!  This card incorporates the new Lucy paper pack as well as some of the new embellishments.  All decorative shapes were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

My Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge is never far from my Cricut.  This is the flower from page 70 of the booklet.  This cartridge is a must have!  You can also see the new Seam Binding ribbon that will be in the new Idea Book.  The seam binding is color ready, you receive 10 yards for $6.95.  I left the ribbon in its natural state here.

One of the great things about Close To My Heart Acrylix stamps is that fact that you can manipulate them.   This saying was stamped with the Card Chatter-Sympathy set.  I curved the Just sittinโ€™ here stamp to go with the flow of the circle.  I selectively inked the Thinking of You saying to match the circle as well.


In this photo you can see a peak of the new Sparkles Flourishes.  I am in love with these!  I think they just might be my new favorite product.  They bring so much to your projects and are oh so easy to apply!  I have used one of the smaller flourishes here, the pack comes with three different flourishes of varying sizes for $4.95.  

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted.
