I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

What, No Stamp?

I know you are thinking I must be crazy, making a card using Close to My Heart products without using a stamp. Who does that?

CTMH papers and cardstock are the best to work with. Having coordinating cardstock at my fingertips is a joy. No more rummaging through the scrap box looking for just the right green. The patterns are so versatile. Even patterns that are meant for a certain theme have elements that can mix and match with other patterns. 

My main addiction to CTMH are the Cricut cartridges. It is a really serious addiction. I rarely make anything without my Cricut. 

So today, I was playing around with the papers from Ivy Lane (now discontinued), and I knew exactly what cuts on CTMH's Artiste cartridge to use to make this Girly card. Since I'm usually making masculine cards for my 5 nephews, this was a chance to make something nice for my niece. I let the patterns and matching cardstock do the work here. I took the bold pattern and used it as the dress so that the dress would pop off of the page on the soft pink. I used coordinating pink and purple to cut the accessories and the title. This is super easy to recreate with any patterns or colors that you have. (I happen to LOVE pink and green together, so this was the patten I wanted to use.)
