Team Brae-er's January Blog Hop - Sugar Rush

Hi folks

Welcome to our January Team Brae-er Blog Hop focusing on the all new Sugar Rush collection from Close To My Heart.


Here's a quick peek at the Paper Pack for this collection. I'm particularly in love with the doughnut and sprinkles papers.


You will see creations from our team that may include stamp sets, patterned paper, inks, embellishments and more from the Close To My Heart Seasonal Expressions and Annual Inspirations Idea books. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, kindly contact your local consultant to place an order. HINT: to find your local consultant go to the CTMH Home office website, click on "What We Do", and then click on "Find a Consultant". Easy Peasy!


We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we really love feedback from our blog viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!


If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow our team's blogs, then please start at the beginning and join Brae over at her page!

Today I'm sharing a few cards I have already made with this brand new collection.

This first card is very much inspired by one of the cards you see on page 19 of the new Seasonal Expressions.


This is a 6 x 6 card and I used the Sugar Rush Paper Pack and the coordinating cardmaking Thin Cuts bundle and stamp set. The card came together so quickly!

My next card also uses the Sugar Rush Paper Pack AND the all new Happy Birthday Thin Cuts.



Again, another easy peasy card. I get the feeling that the Happy Birthday Thin Cuts are going to get a lot of use!

And now off you go to the next stop on the hop at Emily's Scrap Room.

Nature's Wish Birthdays

Hi folks,

I'm back again to share a couple of cards for some January birthdays. 

This year I am going to try to commit to my usual "if I'm making one card, I may as well make multiples". I find it's a good way to keep to card stash supplied for those times when you might run out of time to make a card for an occasion.

I made the first of these two cards for my Dad for his birthday (today!!!)



And this second was sent to a friend. So I guess I didn't really add to my stash on this one after all. But that's okay - I needed the card!!

Some Kinda Wonderful Birthday

Hi folks,

Today I'm sharing a card I made with one of the new paper collections from Close To My Heart - "Some Kinda Wonderful"



This collection features some fun, bold, graphic papers - which I thought were perfect for a birthday card for one of our teenage nephews.
And did you notice the sentiment? It's the new "Happy Birthday" Thin Cuts die. Yippee! I'm expecting to use this one A LOT!

challenges for this card:

Party Time Card Kit

Hi folks,


If you are a frequent visitor, then you know that when it comes to paper-crafting, I am mostly a card-maker. That's why I am such a fan of the card making kits from CTMH. Everything you need to make 10 cards, quick and easy!






The Party Time Card-Making Kit features papers from the Jeepers Creepers Collection but there's nothing Halloween-y about the suggested cards you can make with this kit.





Nice, simple, easy to mail cards - with just a hint of sparkle. Love it!

You only have until the end of the month to snag this kit! When the Holiday Expressions Idea Book retires at the end of December, this kit will be retired!
