CTMH Muslin Gift Bags

Be sure to check out how to use this new product from Close To My Heart. And check out the new Idea Book online to see what else is new this spring.


New Idea Book

I can’t wait, tomorrow is February 1 which means the release of the new Close To My Heart Idea Book. It is filled with some amazing products, too many to list. I have shown you a couple paper packs, Buzz and Bumble and Chantilly. They are beautiful. So be sure to check to check it out online.

If you purchase $50 of product you can get the stamp of the month for only $5.

For a personal copy of the idea book or to host a home gathering where you can see a selection of these great products, be sure to let me know.

Chantilly Bracket frame

Well I haven’t posted anything for a bit and I thought it was time. I wanted to share this as I think it turned out beautifully.  This bracket frame is from Close to My Heart and I covered it using the new Chantilly Paper, which I love. I used the Artiste cartridge to make the flowers and stamped them using various patterned stamps.  I love how all the paper is designed to coordinate.DSCN5901The paper behind is chalkboard paper so once I get some chalk I can write myself notes ( reminders) . The new CTMH catalog is available February 1, I can’t wait for you to see all the new products.

November Close To My Heart Campaign

We are coming up to a new month which means not only a new $5 stamp set available but also this month we have a deal to get a stamp set of your choice for 50% off. Host an online gathering or a card party. I am heading to the Okanagan in November if any of you are interested in getting together to make a card or page and learn a new technique. Or come try the products out at my house in my great new scrap booking room!


Party favors

So my cousin Ashley is throwing a party for a close friend that is getting married and tonight we tested out my new Cricut Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart.

All I can say was ….FUN!! There are so many amazing 3D items you can make it is amazing. I really need to spend some time playing with this.


Close to My Heart Class

So my first Close to My Heart class is coming up this weekend and my cousin Jessica is hosting it for me. I am so excited to teach it and I hope those that come will learn at least one new thing.
My challenge comes as my supplies have not arrived and I am working from my kit. At least I have a few supplies from before to help me along. It has helped me to stretch my imagination to make it an interesting page and also teach second and third generation stamping.
This is really beautiful paper I used called Avonlea, from Close to My Heart, I think it is one of my all time favorites. I love how it all coordinates, which makes it easy to create a layout.

I hope you like it.


I also decided to do a card class to give the option of something smaller , besides, everyone can use a card.


Let me know if you would like to book a party, or maybe even a one-on-one class. We can try new techniques together, or use it as an opportunity to see what is so great about the product.
