I had so many ideas for this paper, but I finally settled on just "Lucky".  This layout uses Hello Lovely paper and flowers from the Circut Flower Market cartridge. I'm sure I'll make several more pages using this beautiful spring paper.

I scream for ice cream!

I love the new paper "Sugar Rush". It's perfect for birthdays, Valentine's Day, and lots of other celebrations. I love ice cream cones, so this was the perfect paper to create a birthday layout to celebrate those delicious treats.
"Celebrate" layout using Close To My Heart's "Sugar Rush" paper collection at  #ctmhsugarrush

I used  Thin Cuts-Celebrate (Z3256) to create the title and the Word Search Embossing Folder (Z3250) to create the background behind the ice cream cone.  I lightly sanded the word "sweet" to reveal the white core found inside all Close To My Heart cardstock. The ice cream cone was cut from Cricut Artistry (Z3167) and the cherry on top is from Cricut Artiste (retired).  Other small shapes such as hearts and arrows were cut from Flower Market (Z3285)and Artbooking (Z3169).

You can find all the "Sugar Rush" paper, embellishments and coordinating stamps on my web site.
