Free To Be Me Simply Inspired Blog Hop

Welcome to my Sweet Studio! If you’ve come from my talented friend Pamela’s Blog, you’re on the right path.

What a fun paper special to kick off May’s Scrapbooking Month!  As I played with all the cool papers, I decided to create a card to send to my team members that would represent a lot of the fun colors and patterns.  Because I had a limited supply of paper and a lot of people to send them to :) I came up with this fun card using one of my favorite Embossing Techniques.

Free Colored Card

If you’ve never done this before, give it a try!  With Close To My Heart’s Exclusive Color line, you can add more color and texture to match your papers.  Plus, it’s super easy to do.  Just swipe your stamp pad across the embossing folder, add your paper, and emboss.  Keep in mind, you can get a different look depending on which side of the folder you add your ink (color will appear on the ridge or valley).  To clean, simply rinse under running water and for tougher inks, use our CTMH stamp cleaner and amazing Stamp Scrubber.

When I started mass producing my team cards, I decided I liked the plain white embossed cards, too!  (For all my Sweet Hearts who are watching your mailbox, here’s what you’ll find there!)

Free Card

Products used:  Chevron Embossing Folder, Lagoon Stamp Pad, White Bulk Cards & Envelopes, Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, the darling stamp set Hello Blooms and of course, the Free To Be Me Special (you’ll be prompted to add after your $50 order). To receive one of these cards, plus the photos and cutting diagram to create 2 beautiful – 12×12 Layouts and 3 cards using this month’s Stamp Of The Month Special, order your Free To Be Me Paper Special today on my website for only $5 (and don’t forget to add on this month’s Stamp of the Month, too)!  Find more details at
