Charmed I'm Sure --- CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Hi! A group of Close to My Heart consultants are featuring a CTMH Technique Blog Hop each month. Each month we focus on using CTMH products in our artwork.
If you arrived here from Judy Faye's Place, you are on the right track!

This month we are featuring "Charms". Charms are part of the CTMH Base and Bling collection.These charms can be used on our necklace but what else can they be used for? Well, check out this blog hop for more ways to use "Charms".

I have been wanting to try my hand at decorating a CTMH Display Tray. As I have already stated this week, I love the Heartstrings paper. So, I put the two together and came up with the following.




I used CTMH Base and Bling in the "Family" spot. That cute little dangling heart comes from the Base and Bling Collection. The other Base & Bling item I created was the "You and Me" charm at the bottom of the tray. Isn't it adorable? I am not sure I am finished with this project. It seems to need something else. I may have to add some additional embellishments.

Hmmmm...I guess I am going to have to make and use a light box for taking photos....The lighting doesn't do the project justice. I did leave some blank spots in the tray. That's where my photos will go. This is a wedding gift and I didn't want to ruin the surprise! hahaha

Thank you for stopping by to see my "Charmed" project!
You can order Close to My Heart products here.

Now hop over to Tmorrows Treasures to be "charmed" some more.

Here's a few of CTMH products that I LOVE!


Exclusive CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge
Heartstrings Paper Pack

I absolutely love the new Heartstring Paper. I have been creating a lot of things with this paper. Here are a few of my creations:










The "LOVE" banner was made using the Heartstrings Paper Pack, CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge, and the Damask Embossing folder.
The cards were made with leftover scrap paper using recipes from the "Make It From Your Heart" books. It's easy to create cute cards with scraps and a recipe.

Thanks for stopping by! Comments and likes are welcome here! If you have any questions just let me know.

Now HOP on over to Sheila Bennett's blog to see her what she LOVES!
