Life Is Wonderful Layout + 2015 Close To My Heart Convention


Life truly is wonderful.  Isn't it cool that Close To My Heart created the July Stamp of the Month to proclaim that?  I created this layout of Daci at the beach by embossing the frame, words, and arrows in white on black cardstock to create my title.



You can see a supply list, complete with photos and links for your convenience, at the end of this post.

As always, the Stamp of the Month is only available for a month and is only $5 ($12.95 savings) with a $50 (before shipping and tax) purchase.  You can also get it FREE this month. Check out this post for details.

If you look just below the title, you'll see that I selected one of the swirls and stamped it directly onto patterned paper. I loved how that turned out.  I did the same thing on the patterned paper block on the upper right hand corner with the arrow stamp.




I am leaving this afternoon for a week to attend the 2015 Close To My Heart annual convention.  Every year I think they can't top the amazing convention I'm attending, and every year I return for a new convention, and they DO TOP the last one. I can hardly wait to see what is in store for us this week.  I'll be in Anaheim, CA at Mickey and Minnie's house doing CTMH Convention, Disney style.   I'm excited that I will also be presenting a class there again this year using brand new products. I can't wait to tell you all about it when I return next week.

My buddies:  Michelle, Amy and Mickey
