So sorry and Giveaway soon!

First, I would like to say sorry for not updating in a few months. Life just got in the way big time. Long story short (if you would like the long story go here) my brother passed away after my fun summer was just about over and I'm still not where I should be yet.

HOWEVER.... I am going to do 3 weeks of giveaways. Yep prizes. Better yet, CTMH stamp sets! It will be a hunt of some kind so pay attention to all the details... because you would not want to miss the sets. Sorry, I cannot tell you which ones, because that is part of the hunt. It will all start THIS Sunday, Sept 25, 2011. A stamp set a week. So spread the word and keep an eye on the blog and face book page! Make sure your a fan (link to it on the right side of this page).

Rules and details on the giveaways to come soon!

3x3 Wings Card

On April 30th, the day after my birthday I had a gathering party at a friends house. It was a lot of fun hanging out with the gals and sharing with them my passion behind scrapbooking and why I became a Consultant for Close to My Heart.

We made this adorable card (3x3) at that event and I just had to share it with you all.

This card is made with the Wings Paper pack. The stamp set is the Wings Workshop set. Colors are Vineyard Berry and Sweet Leaf.

Happy National Scrapbooking Day all. More artwork will be posted all weekend!

Here is what this stamp set is about: "The recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan caused untold devastation and heartache. Have you been wondering what you can do to help the survivors of the tsunami in Japan? Me too, and I was so happy to see what Close to My Heart has created to help the American Red Cross in their relief efforts. 

Through April 30, join me in ordering this stunning Hope for Japan set, A1118 for only $5.00 (retail value $7.95). 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross. This beautifully designed stamp set reminds us of how our hearts are hopeful for those who are in need.

As Jeanette Lynton, our founder wrote on her blog,“If we all do a little, together we can do a lot. Let's show our support and together, provide real HOPE for Japan!”"

Mayberry girl

So here is another fantastic paper pack. This one is called Mayberry. I bought the Workshop on the go for it (retails at $29.95). It comes with 1 bag of Canvas badge buttons, a workshop guide, Mayberry workshop stamp set and a level 2 paper pack, colors include: Cocoa, Colonial white Olive and Smoothie.

This layout is about my daughter, Alexandria's, very first trip to the beach. We went to Carmel State Beach and we had got there about Midnight. The only reason we even went was because I was dropping off boys at a scout outing and we were pretty close to the beach! Here is the layout!

Lucky Paper pack with Boy Scouts


The Lucky Paper pack is a great tool to use if you have boys in Cub or Boy Scouting. The pattern papers work well l no matter WHAT event went on with scouting. I use the Workshops on the Go for this set. The WOTG kits are awesome! They come with lots of paper, cardstock and patterned, a stamp set and much more! Anyways, I know you want to see the pictures….

I made 8 pages from this kit and have many more pages I could make. I ran out of printed pictures! <note to self…print scouting pictures!> Unless otherwise noted, all items use to make the pages are Close To My Heart.

Stay tuned as I did some really girlie pages using Mayberry.

Busy Creating

I have spent most of the last day busy creating scrapbook pages. I am hoping to have them finished by tonight so that I may post them on here. They are pretty rockin' too, if you don't mind me saying so! If you have any boys in Cub Scouts, or Boy Scouts, these layouts you will be wanting to see.

My son, who is now 15 years old, is a Boy Scout. He has been in Scouting sense he was 6 years old (1st grade). By the end of the year, Lord willing, he will have achieved the HIGHEST rank in Boy Scouts, the rank of Eagle. Boy, I can tell you I am a very proud momma! But in the mean time, while he is working on his big Eagle Scout project, I am working on creating his Eagle Scout Scrapbook. Our new paper pack by Close To My Heart, Lucky, is so great for this project.

So stay tuned.... the picture are coming!
