Crushing your Memories~

This quick video shows Close To My Heart's Crush Book and how you can use it to store some of your favorite ephemera and memorabilia.  I used one of these for my daughter's senior year last year.  Here are a few pictures of that one!

"March"ing on!

March already!  Spring is always a time for organization and I am no exception.  I always have grand ideas but not all of them get done.  This spring, I am concentrating on my blog and business.  In doing so, I am revamping my newsletter.  I have used the one that Close To My Heart provides, but I found not everyone was receiving it and I wanted to add more to what they were providing.

So I have launched a current Newsletter!  You may have received yours.  If you have previously opted out and do not want to receive it any more, please be patient with me and just opt out. I will for SURE not send you anything else.  BUT, maybe you haven't gotten my former newsletter and would like to, please use the form below and OPT-IN!!!

I look forward to sharing with you my continued journey with Close to My Heart and papercrafting.  If there is anything you would like to see please leave me a comment below!  I would be thrilled to get some input on what you enjoy most.  I will continue to share the specials that Close to My Heart has each month as well as our Stamp of the Month.  I plan to have kits available to purchase and techniques, tips and tricks included in each newsletter as well.

Happy Scrapping and don't forget to scroll down if you have not received this month's newsletter and sign up!  It's FREE! :)

View from my window

I know alot of the country already has had enough of winter.  But we have had pretty warm weather this year and very little, almost nonexistent snow.  So, I can not resist showing you the lovely view I have gotten to enjoy this week!  It was so quiet when it first came down and everything seemed still and relaxed.  I have enjoyed a couple of snow days with the family too.  Everyone was home again today and life is good.  Yes, we did "make a snowman" too! :) So bear with me while I enjoy the last few weeks of winter!

Welcome Little One!

As you know I have been working on my grands' albums.  I had not started our newest addition's album yet and I finally got that underway!  Here is the title page.  It was interesting that while I was working on this page, Jeanette Lynton had a post about title pages on the blog!  You can find it here, Make it from Your Heart.   Just scroll down to February 11th for the post.  I have already been doing this for each of my grandchildren.  I put a title page with their full names and birth stats and pictures of them.  I hope you enjoy this one.   I scraplifted the layout from Scrappy Chick Designs. It was from June 2013.  I love it!
(The names and stats have been blocked for privacy. )

I have been using the Close to My Heart retired kit, Miracle for his newborn pictures.  I like to tell you what kits I have used in case you have that one also!  I love to find ideas for some of the older kits I still have not used. This might have been a Workshop on the Go kit or a promotional special.  It included Mini Medley Accents Colonial White collection and Irresistibles Chipboard Die-Cuts, and Colonial White Waxy Flax, as well as the Stickease to it.  The colors are Colonial White, Sweet Leaf, Olive and Crystal Blue.  I hope you enjoy this taste of what I've been working on.

Happy Birthday!

Today I wanted to share with you a birthday card I sent my sweet sister.   We have several birthdays in January / February so I was trying to keep up!  But I especially liked this one.  I used the newest Cricut cartridge from Close To My Heart-Artfully Sent!  I am really enjoying this cartridge and the fun alphabet stamp set that came with it.  You can see the set here.

Isn't that fun?  It was so simple too.  I enjoyed making this card and only added the prism glitter to set it off!
