What could be better than chocolate? Crafting with chocolate perhaps? Check out the Close To My Heart August stamp of the month, A Chocolate Affair, and this sweet blog hop. (If you're already hopping, then you should have arrived from Elizabeth's blog. After enjoying my delectable creations, you'll head on over to Michelle's blog.)
Heart 2 Heart Challenges Ombre challenge, so I grabbed several of our yummy browns: Champagne, Cashmere, Desert Sand, and Chocolate. Isn't this a great sketch from Originals? I am so excited that the card how-to guide is available again (as of 8/1/13!) If you look closely, the top square comes from the new Frosted paper pack, and the second square (plus the long strip) come from Huntington. Aren't they beautiful? How about that gorgeous bronze shimmer trim? I couldn't leave my treats plain, so I jazzed them up with some Almond glitter glitz gel.
Now, on to my next project:
The Claire paper pack is now retired, but it might show up sometime in the "While Supplies Last" section of my website.
CTMH is even sweetening the pot this month! With a minimum $50 order, the August stamp of the month will be FREE!
Now, go check out Michelle's chocolate-y treat!
