Kitnapping and a Chantilly Cricut Card

Close to My Heart-CTMH-Chantilly-Happy Thoughts-Artiste-Cricut

Using the Cricut is a great way to create thoughtful cards.  Cheryl Tingley created this lovely card using the Chantilly paper packet and made her own background paper on the yellow with the Happy Thoughts paper packet. 

The Chantilly paper packet is featured in our $49 starter kit.  In April, you can get an additional 4 stamps sets with this kit making the total retail value of the kit over $220.  Ask me how you can “kitnap” the the starter kit and join my consultant club!

Another swing card.  I don’t think I can ever get tired of these cards.  They are cut using the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  This one is created from the Chantilly paper packet and the bow is also cut using the same cartridge.

Hello Sk8r

This spring, Close to My Heart debuted their line of textiles that coordinate with the Chantilly and For Always paper packs.  I love that Karen combined the Chantilly fabric with the Later Sk8r paper for a nice “Hello”.  The new Chevron ribbon goes with several of the spring/summer paper packets including Tommy, Claire and Later Sk8r.
