Are You Ready to Learn Something New?

This week, while I am at the Close to My Heart Convention, I have decided to do a recap of some of my favorite tutorials from the past year. Quite a few of you have joined me recently, so I figured that this was the best time to, not only share some great projects with you, but show you a few that you might have missed.  If you have already viewed these tutorials, I hope that this little refresher will inspire you to create something new.


♥ Basic Watercolor Techniques

If you are just starting out with watercolor pencils, or you are wanting to pick them up again, my Using Watercolor Pencils tutorial is a great read. I walk you through a few techniques for using our amazing pencils and inspire you with a beautiful card I made using our Feels Like Home papers.


♥ Playing with Paper Pom-Poms

Although this was a St Patrick’s Day decoration, I have considered CASEing myself and recreating it for fall. These adorable little pom-poms are so simple to make and fun to use on your paper crafts.


♥ Watercolor Embossed Backgrounds

The card I created with this technique was one of my favorite creations. The vivid watercolor background paired with vellum made it simple and elegant. I would love for you to give this Watercolor Background technique a try, and share it in our VIP Group.


♥ Using a Visual Triangle

Have you heard of using a visual triangle to create balance on your layouts? If not, this tutorial will walk you through how I used this technique to create a balanced layout of our anniversary trip to the Botanical garden.


Did you learn something new? Were you inspired to give one of these techniques a try? As a Close to My Heart consultant, I truly enjoy showing you how to create something you love and want to share with the ones you care about.  Please feel free to share what you created in the comments below or in my VIP Facebook Group.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
