Simply Inspired "Year Noted" Blog Hop

Thanks for visiting our first Blog Hop of the year!  
If you've arrived here from the super talented Katy Taylor's blog, you are right on track. 


It's National Paper Crafting Month!  Each January Close To My Heart features a fantastic exclusive special and this one is amazing in both content and value!  

For only $5 on a $50 purchase, you'll receive Year>>Noted, a beautiful kit containing exclusively designed papers, stamp set, and foil stickers!  For just $5 more, you can add the My Creations Mini Book to the kit.  This sweet little book contains 10 page protectors will make up a darling little photo album highlighting events of your year.

I chose to show how versatile the supplies are and made a springtime card which could be used for a 
Birthday or Easter card.
How cute is this little lamb in a hot air balloon?  The design is part of a new stamp set called "Hopping By" found in the 
Seasonal Expressions supplement.  
The entire set is filled with adorable images!


The card is held together with Baker's Twine and tags cut with the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge.





Additional CTMH supplies used:
Hopping By & Holiday Tags Stamp Sets
Desert Sand & White Daisy cardstock.
 ShinHan Touch Twin Markers: Barely Beige, Light Orange, Turquoise Blue, Clay, Warm Grey
CTMH Exclusive Cricut Cartridge: Artiste, page 33, Accent 4.


Now hop over to my friend Bren Yule's blog to see what amazing creations she has to share with us!

  7. Lovely card Margi. It's just cute all the way around. Very fun example of using the tags to make it tie across the front of the card.
