Give a Lift- Thank You

After creating another page for my school chipboard mini, I felt inspired to make another card that is made solely (well, mostly) from Close to My Heart product. I made a deal with my girls this afternoon that allowed me to actually scrapbook for a satisfying (genuinely) amount of time. The deal? I promised them my undivided attention for a predetermined block of time before and after (unintentionally) my “me” time. I hadn’t originally planned it that way, but it worked. It worked like a charm- to the point that I think I’ve got to try this again! I challenge you to give it a try. You may be pleasantly surprised!
I am not sure whether I mentioned this here or not, but I recently found a CTMH idea book from earlier in 2000; I think it’s dated 2006. I don’t remember who gave it to me, or where I found it, but I’m SO glad I held on to it! The inspiration in those pages is phenomenal. I might not have the papers and products from that catalog, but that doesn’t mean the ideas are null and void! The card I created was inspired by a card in it. Here’s today’s card, and all the products I used to create it:



– CTMH Balloon Ride Complements
– CTMH Balloon Ride patterned paper
– CTMH ink (Sky and Chocolate)
– CTMH stamps (Delicate Wings Mini, Give a Lift)
– Recollections kraft and light blue card stock
– pop dots
– adhesive
– border punch
– twine
-Martha Stewart glitter glue, to accent

Lastly, here’s the next page in my mini album:
