Topstitch cards - Valentine's and Happy birthday

Sorry it has taken a while since my last post - Life Happens!
These are two of my recent cards that I made using the topstitich
paperpack from Close To My Heart. I also used the February
Stamp of the Month called "piece of cake" which
I think is one of the best stamp sets in the Spring 2010 idea book.

Veranda Layout with and without pictures

Here is the Close To My Heart Veranda Workshop on the go both with and without pictures. The paper is this kit and the techniques in this workshop created beautiful pages. I enjoyed making a layout with pics of myself and my husband as I am always doing the kid's layouts and rarely get pictures of the two of us let alone make layouts with only our pictures in it. I used the sepia filter and the increased the saturation which I thought was a perfect hue for the colors in the layout. I still have to add the journalling on the right page but I am just trying to get the workshops done for my crop next weekend. I will post the coordinating cards in a few days so be sure to check back. Thanks for looking!

Topstitch Cards

I think this is my favorite paperpack from the Close To My Heart Spring 2010 Idea Book and it is called Topstitch. I always liek the look of chocolate with pink and blue!

Topstitch Layouts

This is the Topstitch Workshop on the go with Close To My Heart. The first layout (for my daughter's album) is the one that goes with the workshop guide and you get full instructions on how to make it. The second layout (for my son's album) is the additional layout I was able to make with the additional product left over and the Imagine "How To" book. Check back in a few days for the 6 different cards I was also able to make and I still have alot of paper left over!
