Close To My Heart is teaming up with Big Picture Classes again to bring you a live webcast with step-by-step instructions for making this layout using the Cricut® Artbooking collection. Purchase the collection beginning August 1, 2013 and revolutionize the way you scrapbook!
The FREE webcast will air Wednesday, July 31 at 7:00 pm (MDT). During the presentation, you’ll learn to make several projects from a variety of sponsors, including Close To My Heart’s Artbooking layout, as our very own Kristine Widtfeldt walks you through the steps—and sneaks the Artbooking collection!
The Pajama Party class will be available for FREE at BigPictureClasses.com on July 31, and will be archived after the event for future viewing. If you would like to interact on the message board, participate in live chat, post to the gallery, download handouts, or enter any contests, you will need to log in to the Pajama Party “classroom” by creating a free account on the Big Picture Classes website. If you have already created an account or if you registered for the first Pajama Party in May, you are all set! You will not need to create another account or register again.
I hope you will find time to enjoy this sneak peek of the new Artbooking collection as Kristine Widtfeldt, Stacy Julian, and the rest of the Big Picture Classes crew make the featured project and share their tips and tricks for using the collection. You can pre-order the Artbooking collection HERE and know it's on your way Aug 1 so you can spring into action and start creating!

It's been hot and humid (with lots of rain) so I thought I'd cool things off a bit with a winter card this week. It didn't really work but a girl's gotta try right? I used Mojo Monday's sketch this week. It's their 300th and in honor of it they are giving away 30 prizes from various sponsors.
I used a retired pack, Wonderland, for this card. I started off by using my CTMH ruler and stitch guide to create faux stitching around the edge. The "stitches" were created using the .2 tip pen that's available on the While Supplies Last section of my site. It was a bargain and I couldn't resist! The image was colored with alcohol markers and finished off with some Sparkles and Glitz Glitter Glue.
Thanks for looking!
Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Wonderland (retired), Twilight Cardstock, Colonial White Cardstock
Stamps: Flakey Friends (C1506)
Ink: Chocolate, Smokey Plum Alcohol Marker (Z2420), Twilight Alcohol Marker (Z2400)
Other: Shimmer Trim (Z1799), Glitz Glitter Glue (Z1313), Sparkles (Z1326)
