Close To My Heart {CTMH}, Sticky Boy, Disney, Operation Smile and More!

Sticky Boy does Disney!

Who is Sticky Boy? Where can I get one?  Well, he has quite the story!  He was first introduced with our acrylic stamps 10 years ago! He even has his own Facebook page!

He shows up hiding at conventions, and if you are lucky enough, you might find one! He has also raised lots on money for Operation Smile!  What a great guy!

Mini Pumpkin Centerpiece Tea Light with CTMH Cricut

Whew! I had a very busy few days! Just back from the Ontario Scrapbook Expo where I helped my talented friend, Joanne Walton, with her booth. This is one of the darling make n' takes she created and sold out of! Love the tea light inside! So here's the scoop...cut 10 pieces of paper strips 6" x 3/4" and sponge edges. Stack together and hole punch both ends and add brads to hold together (I used my crop-a-dile) Fan apart to form the pumpkin shape.  Add a covered cardboard 2" circle base for stability and top with three leaves cut from Art Philosophy (mist and scrunch) and add a bow and a threaded twine button. Instant mini centerpiece!
