Hello Life!

Close To My Heart has something to help every kind of papercrafter say a big “hello” to life!

These Exclusive C-size stamp sets can be purchased for $21 each OR for an even better deal, purchase all three for only $53 - a saving of $10!

Each stamp set is designed to fit with a specific type of papercrafting, whether that’s traditional scrapbooking, cardmaking, or pocket scrapbooking. All the stamp sets coordinate with each other and can also be used together to create dynamic artwork. These stamp sets also coordinate with shapes from the new Cricut® Artistry collection to help expand your artwork options even further.

This is the double page layout I have created using the Hello Life! - Scrapbooking Stamp set CC1040 and Nevermore Paper Pack. This paper pack is designed for Halloween but, as you can see, it works for any photos!

The flowers that I stamped on White Daisy cardstock, I just fussy cut out with my Non-stick Micro Tip Scissors. They are fabulous for cutting finer details. I raised one of each with 3D Foam tape and stamped the leaves directly onto the page with Black Exclusive Ink.

I used a different Stamp Set for the banner - D1648  Snapshot  Memories and daubed around the edge with Black Ink. I then added some Clear Sparkles for bling! Cardstock colours used are Sunset, Eggplant, Pear and Black.
All products used can be purchased from my website here.
