Late Night Crafting Craziness!

I am a bit worried about my ability to ever correct my sleeping pattern at this point.  After our family vacation out to WA state, I never really got back into the CST groove, lol.  The upside to this apparent change in my bedtime has been all the late night crafting I have managed!  Can't very well vacuum when the rest of the house is sleeping soundly, no?

SOoooooo I have stumbled upon still more new challenges to try out, the first of which practically had my name on it...Addicted to CAS Code Word: GLITTER!!! 

 
Can you even believe it!?  I did the happy dance in my craft room, then got down to work.  I could not believe that I hadn't played with one of the new Close to My Heart Autumn/Winter products:  Bronze Shimmer Trim!!!  For.  Real.
It was time to correct that little oversight...


For this clean card, I opened up my new Babycakes Scrapbook Kit.  The patterns in this packet are super-versatile, so don't be deterred by the baby theme card, lol.  I LOVE the way the Lagoon CS looks with them.  These little reverse scalloped edges were the negative scraps from some Cricut cuts I made from the stunning new ARTBOOKING Cartridge.  You will definitely want to check out that link after you read this post!

I also used this sketch over at another new blog for me to play along with, Freshly Made Sketches.


This adorable sentiment is included in the D size stamp set in the brand new Babycakes Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go and found in Close to My Heart's Autumn/Winter Idea Book that goes live August 1st on my website.  (Um, run-on sentence anyone?)  There is a design around it on the actual stamp, but I trimmed it off to use only the words.  The Bronze Shimmer Trim is actually included with this kit as well!  See how beautifully it picks up the light?



Would you believe these little bling things come with the kit too?  Yep!  The Babycakes Assortment is full of cute little blingy circles and enamels.


Well, the inside of this card deserved some bling too, don't you think?  After all, it IS a glitter challenge!  


I believe I just successfully created a boy baby card with bling!  Yeah, BABY(cakes)!  ;)
