Today in my email inbox was a lovely little note telling me I had received a blog award from a fellow consultant Tamytha Jenkins. I have stalked her blog on more than one occasion and have even flat-out stamplifted from her too!! Well, first I was totally flattered...and then felt a bit guilty, since in these past few months I have completely FAILED at this whole blogging thing!! It's not that I'm not 'stamping all day' - it's that I totally forget to take pictures and actually share what I am doing! :) And trust me, with this whole Pinterest inspiration in my life...I am doing A LOT!!

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a terrifict Tuesday!!
Today for your viewing pleasure...I have this incredible topiary make with paper! Yep! You got it! Paper!! This stunning creation was made with the fabulous new 3-D paper flower cut outs from Close to my Heart's new exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. It was as simple and easy as programing my Cricut to cut the flowers, roll and glue to a foam shape!! Now even as easy as it is...I will admit there is about 300 flowers on this baby! So cut yourself some flowers, grab your DVR remote and catch up on your favorite show.
There are a total of six different flower shapes you can cut with CTMH's new Art Philosophy Cartridge. For the foral ball I used the rose style cut to create these semi-opened rose buds. They were cut at 3-3/4", inked and distressed with Chocolate ink and the rolled and glued with a touch of hot glue.
I created the stem of the topiary with a wooden dowel and some scrap floral stems from silk flowers I purchased for another project. I inserted the dowel in the foam ball and secured it in the pot with some additional foam, then surrounded to dowel with the cut stems.
For the 'moss' I cut one of the other styles of flowers from the cartrige - a more 'pom' style flower also at about 3-3/4" in Olive Cardstock.
I was thrilled with the results! I look forward to creating some other incredible home decor with the new Close to my Heart exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Today I have for you one of Close to my Heart's new My Reflections Level 2 scrapbooking paper packs - Typeset. It is gorgeous in it's lucios colors of Black, Juniper, Vineyard Berry, Bamboo and Colonial White. It will be your favorite go-to paper pack for all those back to school photos, graduation photos and countdown layouts. But, wait!! What's that you say? My layout is all summery?? Yup! You got it folks! The gorgeous colors in this new paper pack coordinated so well with my photos...it would have been almost criminal not to use it! But doesn't it look great?? It's one of my favorite layouts...for the moment, anyway!
Please enjoy some other selections of my Extravagnza Artwork with the new Typeset paper pack. (Please forgive the photography...as I am a 'mad' papercrafter, but a 'bad' photographer! Can't do it all, right??)
