Stampers with an Attitude September Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog.  If you have arrived from Cat Nowak's blog you are on the right path.  This month I have paired the paper packet theme of Scaredy Cat with the September Stamp of the Month, Family is Forever. 
I wanted to show the versatility of the paper by creating something other than a Halloween design.  My card uses the starburst design.  I cut a heart out using the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge and stamped it with the heart from Family is Forever in thistle ink. A strip of purple shimmer tape across the bottom completed the card.  Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing any of the items I’ve used here.  The Stamp of the Month can be yours for $5 with a $50 purchase.
Here are a few more cards I created with the Scaredy Cat paper pack.  The colors are perfect for Halloween, yet versatile enough for other occasions as well.

Now hop over to Melissa Robinson's blog to see what she has designed with the Scaredy Cat paper pack.

Stampers with an Attitude Chalk it Up Blog Hop!

I hope you are enjoying the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.  August's theme is 'Chalk it Up'!  All of the artwork uses the new Chalk it Up paper pack from Close to My Heart. 

If you are following the Stampers with an Attitude blog hop you are on the right track and just left Jen Patrick's blog to arrive here.  Isn’t everyone’s artwork just amazing?  Here is my creation. 

The 4x4 card was inspired by something I saw online but I was unable to locate it again so I could give credit. I used the Chalk it Up paper and "Paired" it with Close to My Heart's "Pear" cardstock. The sentiment on the card says "Have a Happy Day" and is part of the new Have a Happy Day stamp set. The  card base and ruffled mat were cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge and the Artiste cartridge was used to cut the sentiment label. I just love my CTMH Cricut cartridges.  They are so versatile!

The other item in the picture is a cookie wrapper.  Both the wrapper and the label were cut with a project file from Cricut Design Space. "Enjoy!" was written with the Cricut Explore.  The wrapper is lined with freezer paper. It would be easy to create in Cricut Craft room by combining a solid square with lattice triangles. A 3 1/2" cookie will fit in the wrapper. 

Please contact me at if you are interested in owning your very own Artbooking or Artiste Cricut cartridge. Or visit my Close to My Heart web page at For $99 you receive a fabulous CTMH exclusive  Cricut cartridge, three coordinating My Acrylic stamp sets and three dimensional elements chipboard shape sheets.

Happy Stamping!
