Happy Happy Christmas - 20 Christmas Card kit for Holiday Cards

It's time to get busy on all of the fun holiday crafts for the season. To kick things off,   I have created a 20 card Christmas Card workshop using our Happy Happy Christmas Picture My Life pocket style cards. This is a quick, fun and cute set of cards that you can whip out in a brief amount of time, and EVERY card will be unique!

This kit is a great activity to do with kids too because they can easily help you or even create these themselves. There is some trimming involved so if they aren't familiar with a paper trimmer, they would need help with that. 

What will you need to do? Simply trim the Picture My Life Cards following the picture guide and then assemble. All of the extra pieces of Cardstock, Glitter Paper and Shimmer trim will come pre-cut and in a labeled envelope for each card. Easy Peasy.

Supplies Included:

  • 20 Cards and Envelopes
  • 1 Package of Happy Happy Christmas PML Cards
  • 1 Roll of 3D Foam Tape
  • All Cardstock, Glitter Paper and Shimmer Trim Pre-cut
  • Color Photo Cutting guide for EVERY Picture My Life Card
  • Instruction Guide for assembly
  • Any embellishments needed: Gold Sequin and Sparkles
Kits will be shipped in a Flat Rate Priority  mail envelope with Tracking.

Beautiful Florence

Hey Everyone,

Today I wanted to share the layouts I created with the new Florence papers. These papers are soBoho chic, bold and beautiful. I really am enjoying how they pop off the page. If you haven't seen them before, pop on over to my website and peek at them there.  There are lots of coordinating products to use. Just a quick thing to make note of: they are only available until August 31st, 2016 though, and then they will be gone, gone, gone. 

If you are more of a kit girl, and enjoy the simplicity and speed that comes with simply putting together a pre-cut, ready to go kit, then I can help you out. My kits are complete with all the necessary materials plus a color instructional guide for easy assembly 

Over the years, I have found there are just as many scrappers who enjoy using kits as those who enjoy creating from scratch. 

I can help. To get your very own kit, click on the Paypal link below.

Hey Everyone,

Today I wanted to share some of the Scrapbook Pages I created with the Urban papers. Unfortunately these papers are no longer available but I do have 6 page Scrapbook kits that are ready to head out the door... but more about those later.

Being a momma to 4 boys, I am always loving anything in the masculine range of things and these papers fit the bill. However, they are also awesome for sports layouts, especially baseball and softball. Can you see it? They are my fave right now!! Here are the 6 pages I put together:

I really really really enjoy all types of paper crafting, and being a Close To My Heart Consultant has been a perfect fit for me. 18 years ago I wasn't sure... in fact, my hubby had to talk me into it. Glad I finally listened. I love that I have a flexible job, doing what I love, the allows me to be home with my kiddo's as they grow up, while also earning some moolah.

If this at all peaks your curiosity, maybe this is something for you.  For only $75 you can find out... and it gets better.

For $75, you get almost $300 worth of stuff, much of which is fully customizable for you. PLUS, there is a bonus Freebie that ends July 31st: A free bundle of your choice from those shown below.

You can see it all on my website page about the Close To  My Heart Opportunity.

Watercoloring and Die Cuts using the new Thin Cuts from Close To My Heart

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I have a video to share that highlights using our Watercolor paints and our new Spring Critters Thin Cuts. Both are fairly new items to the Close To My Heart product line and both are fabulous.

Thin Cuts are what we call our Die Cuts. They work with any die cutting machie you have. I use my cuttlebug. One thing that sets ours apart is that they come already on a magnetic sheet, in the same envelope that we store our stamps in, so  you can easily see what you have and pull out just the one you want. I have also found them to be SUPER affordable compared to others on the market. Here is a picture our thin cuts and the coordinating stamp set:

Aren't they adorable!! Now here is the catch... these are only available on a "While Supplies Last" basis and our stock is running seriously low... then they are gone forever! It's so sad!! I love the ones we have, but am looking forward to the new ones that will be coming out.

So as promised, here is the video showing you the watercoloring of these images after they have been cut. So much fun. If you would like to get your set, or see all of the designs that are retiring at the end of the month, you can see them here. 

Now to really sweeten the deal... did you know that this month, and this month ONLY, you can buy any 2 stamp sets, and get the 3rd one FREE! So if you want to make sure to add these thin cuts to your collection, as well as the coordinating stamp sets, this is the month to do it! And who knows, you may be the one drawn for the FREE HOSTESS PRODUCTS as well. Yep, that is right... I give away the Hostess Rewards earned each month by random drawing. Watch for a video the beginning of April announcing the winner!

Feel free to contact me with any questions, and happy creating!

With a smile,
