About Me

I first began scrapbooking in 1981 when my oldest daughter started kindergarten, of course scrapbooking has sure evolved in the years since then and so has my own scrapbooking.
 I love to scrapbook & I love Close to My Heart Products. My desire is to share with you my love of scrapbooking memories, and ideas for making cards, scrapbooking layouts and home décor`. To order supplies I have used, and for tons of ideas, go to my website, www.inkypaws.closetomyheart.com

Art with Attitude ~ July Blog Hop

Welcome to Art with Attitude ~ July Blog Hop 
by the Stampers with an Attitude! 
The Stampers with Attitude is a Close to My Heart team led by Kimberly Moss, and I am one of her many downline. This month, we will be featuring "Show Your Patriotism". 
If you have come here from Di Crawford's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  Just click on the link at the end of the post to move on to the next one! If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of my post.

The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show you some Patriotic Art with an Attitude, so here we go

My project is a two page layout using our NEW Artbooking Cricut Cartridge. I used the "K" key. This NEW cartridge is AWESOME. One key give you all the coordinating images for a layout without getting, "Guesstimators Asymetriosis" the disease of having to guess the size to cut each image. I made a 4th of July layout with photos of three of our grandkids. I used the following cardstocks and inks, Outdoor Denim, Ruby, Honey, and Indian Corn Blue.


The Next blogger on the hop is Debbie Andrews
Happy Hopping, Barbi
