If you came from Janine Garcia/http://jninesworld.blogspot.com/2012/08/ClementineCreation.html you are in the right place!
If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog, www.damaskdivas.com/bloghopclementine/ to find the complete list of blog hop participants.
"Clementine" is one of my favorite new paper packs from Close to My Heart! This simple card was created using the "Artiste" Cricut cartridge, the tiny sparkles and also Barn Red ink.
All of the items shown here (except for the small circular piece of vellum) are from the paper pack. I also used one of our new markers (Twilight blue dots) to accent around the edges of the focal point in this piece of artwork. I hope you will leave me a comment or two! This was a fun and quick project to create and I'm happy to share it!
The next blog on the list is: Karina's/Inspir3d2create.blogspot.com/2012/08/damask-divas-september-blog-hop.html. Hope you have a great time on our hop and checking out all the creations using "Clementine". If you get lost, just hop on over to www.damaskdivas.com/bloghopclementine/ for the full list. These links go live on September 1st.

Good morning! In the attempt to be a better blogger, I've decided to post some past artwork that I've done...maybe it will inspire someone to do something creative!

First of all, for those who live locally, don't forget our "Avonlea Card Workshop" that is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 5th from 10-12 a.m. at my house. Bring your own "Avonlea" card Workshop-On-The-Go kit. Cost is $5 which will be donated to "Operation Smile". If you don't have the card kit, bring $15 and I will provide supplies for you. $5 will still be donated to "Operation Smile".
And a great big SHOUT OUT to my downline, NICOLE EVANSON, for just reaching her second Straight-To-The-Top Goal all within her first month as being a consultant! I am so very proud of her! She's amazing!

As an added incentive, anyone who books a gathering (in person or online) between now and September 14th will receive their choice of a FREE "My Stickease" or "Complements" from the new Idea Book. (You can view the Idea Book on my web site, too!) --- of course, if you have at least $150 in orders you will receive FREE gifts anyway! PLUS, if you decide that this crafty stuff is for you and you'd like to earn some extra income or just have lots of free stuff and discounts for yourself, then you can join my team "The Bloomin' Crafty Divas" and I will give you a FREE paper pack of your choice from the new Idea Book once you're all signed up! You can take your choice of two options: the "Basic" package which is only $49 or the all-inclusive at $99. Either one is fantastic! I've been doing some price comparisons with the "competition" and CTMH has the best prices by far! (This photo shows the "Basic" package . . . and if you sign my right away you will get one of those beautiful damask bags to carry it in!)

September is right around the corner and we, of course, have another fantastic Stamp of the Month for September! It's so cute....I can hardly wait to get one for myself!

Time for something new...it's been TOO LONG since I was here last! So, first with a little news...still applying for jobs and going to interviews. Hopefully something happens and soon...but I'm still an independent consultant for "Close to My Heart" also! Love their products and their prices!
