Laughing Lola Birthday cards

Here is one last post of Laughing Lola cards from the Workshop on the go kit from Close To My Heart.  I wanted to do some birthday cards so I dug out some birthday stamps and used them instead of the sentiments included in the kit.  Shows how versatile the workshop kits can be.  This kit retires at the end of this month.

Products used:
this is also your last chance to take advantage of the January special, Cloud 9 card kit.

Laughing Lola workshop variations

I decided to make a few changes to the directions in the workshop.  You can compare today's pictures with yesterday's pictures.  I just wanted to have some other options with this workshop kit.  I really like this kit and hope that you do to.  It retires in just 10 days so get yours before they are gone!

Card Workshop

I don't know how, but I never really looked into this card workshop before.  It's a complete set to make 15 cards.  All you need is adhesive and ink.  I'm so glad I discovered this kit because it is going to retire at the end of the month.

I really like the stamp set because they can be used in so many ways.  I have so many love stamps but honestly, how many love cards to you give out in a year?

Laughing Lola Workshop on The Go

Don't forget the January special celebrating papercrafting month, Cloud Nine.  It's another great cardmaking kit.

Wedding gift

I friend recently asked me to make these mugs to give as a gift.  She had seen the set somewhere else but thought that I might be able to reproduce them.  It was so easy but looks so nice.  I found the white mugs at IKEA and I used black vinyl to cut the letters.

If you use the cricut craft room, you can weld the letters together so that it looks much more elegant and easier to apply.  The font is from the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.

Thanks Becky for the inspiration!  I hope that this also inspires others.

Cloud 9 card variations

So I really loved making the cards in the new Cloud 9 card kit.  There was a ton of washi tape and shimmer tape left over so I decided to make more.  Only this time I used paper from the Laughing Lola paper pack.

The stamp set included in the Cloud 9 card kit coordinates with the CTMH Artiste cartridge so I could cut out many more pieces.  I still have a lot of blue shimmer tape and polka dot washi tape left.  Time to get creative and figure out what else I can make with it.

Which do you like?  The original cards from the Cloud 9 kit or the ones I made with Laughing Lola?

On Cloud Nine

Close To My Heart has a special card kit to celebrate national papercrafting month.  Didn't know there was such a thing did ya?  Now you do.  And this card kit was a lot of fun to make.  All directions, paper, stamp set, and accessories are included.  All you need is ink and adhesive.  I really enjoyed making these 10 cards(2 of each design) because they were easy to make.  Sometimes it's nice to not have to be creative.

Order $35 in products and you are eligible to add this kit to your order for only $15.  Visit my website for all of the details.
