Time for a Little Mischief!

When I walked into Target the other day to get those last few items on my kids' school supply lists, I was surprised to find the school supplies were pushed to the back (on clearance - yay!) to make way for Halloween! Really? Already? Of course, this shouldn't surprise me as my own daughter decided on her Halloween costume in July, but it was a not so subtle reminder that Halloween is just around the corner.

At Close to My Heart, that means it's time for a little Mischief! All this month, my workshop groups are playing with the fun Mischief papers. I love the sophistication these papers display...earthy colors and classic patterns make it a definite TREAT for all your spooky Halloween papercrafting!

For my card club, however, I wanted to show the true diversity that can be found in the kit. As it turns out, Mischief is so much more than spooky is elegant, it is autumnal, and it is masculine!

Take a look at the three cards I created for my card club!

We started with this fun card which highlights the Pair-a-Phrase double stamp set available through September only! Simply spend $75 in September and the Pair-a-Phrase set is yours FREE! Click HERE for the details!

Yes, this card screams Halloween! However, my card club ladies pointed out that the fun treat bag could easily become a shopping bag or ladies handbag.

Next, we created an earthy Thank You card using the ticket stamp and die cut image from the Cricut Art Philosophy collection. We also used the new Milepost Shapes - these corrugated Kraft shapes are so fun and add that perfect touch, don't you think?

Did you see the quick and easy, clean and simple card I shared last night? Well, I loved that design so much, I decided to try it with Mischief! If you ask me, there is nothing Halloween about this card!
I'd love to have you join our card-making fun! We typically meet the 2nd Monday of the month, but check the Workshops/Events tab (above) as occasionally we need to adjust that schedule. we always make 3 cards, and your workshop is FREE with a $25 order placed the night of the workshop. Join us on a regular basis and earn Hostess Rewards too!

Don't forget...that Pair-a-Phrase set is only available through September. Head on over to my website to get yours today!
