Penelope Picture My Life Cards make great CARDS

 The new Close To My Heart Workshop Your Way paper suites include Picture My Life pocket page scrapbook sheets.

Several are beautiful patterns and perfect for card making.

The first card uses the multi color striped piece and the my most favorite stamp set (and thin dies Z3200 -- get them before they sell out) Stuck On You (C1643). A little watercoloring to add that soft burst of color.

Adding a little interest in the corners with the dots stamp image.





The second card used one of the floral cards for the background and the pink woodgrain for the fussy cut flowers from Springtime Wishes (C1641). Honey cardstock and the Honey floral zip strip (ask me what this is) added a little punch of color.

I love to send Thank You cards to anyone ordering from my -- SHOP NOW -- and this card may be the one I send to you!!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 



The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
