Fabulously Artsy Florence Workshop

Thursday, May 26, 2016

As soon as I saw the new Close to My Heart paper pack, Florence, I wanted to create a new Fabulously Artsy workshop with it! I love the eclectic look of the mixed patterns, and the color combo makes me think of sunny summer days.

I decided to go with the bohemian vibe, and added kraft cardstock and fern twine for an earthy appeal, plus sequins for a spot of glam. I think these pages would look fabulous with photos of that free-spirited special someone in your life, or use them for beach and vacation photos!

This workshop contains four pages (one double page spread and two single pages that can be used together), plus six cards (two each of three designs). The workshop uses the Cricut Artistry cartridge from Close to My Heart, or you can substitute your own favorite cartridge with your favorite shapes.
The pages come together quickly with no stamping required. The cards use the Bitty Birthday stamp set, or you can use your own favorite sentiment set. Embellish your pages with hand-drawn borders to give your pages and cards even more artistic flair!
As with all my Fabulously Artsy workshops, you'll get my professional quality guide to help you through every step of the way in cutting and assembling your pages and cards. Easy and thorough instructions will have you creating beautiful pages ready for your photos, and creative cards to wow your friends.

1. Get it FREE! Just place an order on my website for $20 in any products of your choice. You can order supplies for the workshop, or anything else, you choose!

A Lovely New Catalog!

Tuesday, May 10, 2016


If you have spring fever, I've got good news for you! The Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog is now available! Keep reading to see how you can get your own copy.

But first, let me show of my pretty little card using the new Florence paper pack and the Lovely Birthday stamp set. This paper reminds me of the popular BoHo Chic look that's so popular right now. I just love mixing it with natural elements like twine and kraft paper, but also adding a little bling too.

Good news! I'm working on a new Fabulously Artsy workshop with scrapbook pages AND cards, and I'm hoping to get it all finished and out for sale sometime next week. 

Check back here on my blog or follow me on facebook to stay up to date on my workshop release.
