25 Days of Christmas Workshop

I am really excited to offer this workshop just in time for Christmas this year. If anyone has heard of "December Daily" then you already have an idea of what is in store with this workshop. You can check out this great source by Ali Edwards and all her December Daily genius here.

This workshop is great for everyone. I am creating my album for a display piece that I can leave out as part of my decor for Christmas. I will be including photos, memorabilia and journaling of all the things I love about this season as well as document all our family traditions, how they came about and what they mean to my family. This album is also a great gift that you can create and give to someone as a gift this year. They can add their holiday photos and document their own special memories this year.

This workshop will include everything needed to complete an entire "25 Days of Christmas" album. Close To My Heart Materials include (not all shown):

-A Kraft Album
-Over 20 album pages using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and the Sparkle and Shine Paper Packet
-Materials to decorate the front album cover
-A Full pack of Sparkle and Shine Complements Dimensional Elements
-Over 100 die-cut pieces
-Many embellishments such as: Glitz Glitter Gel, Sparkle and Shine Washi Tape, Ribbon, Shimmer Trim, Sparkles and Opaques, Chipboard pieces and much, much more!

Please join me in this unique way to document all those memories that is saturated in the first "25 Days of Christmas"!

Chocolate Affair Tags- So Much Fun!!

I had so much fun with Nancy and Diann creating these tags. Their creativity is amazing and it was so inspiring to watch these ladies go through the creative process. I love doing workshops like these where I just set out all the materials and let everyone dive right in. It is so great to learn from each other and try new things.

Thank you for a very fun day! Looking forward to doing it again sometime! :)

February Home Sweet Home Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop

Hello Hoppers!
     Welcome to the Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop! Each month Close To My Heart offers a stamp set that   is only available for us stampers to get our hands on during the month it is offered. This hop is a great way to see TONS of artwork featuring that stamp. You will get so many ideas from some very creative people that you will want this set for your very own. This set is available through your Close To My Heart Independent Consultant. If you don't have a consultant, feel free to leave me a comment and I would love to get back to you with information on ordering this stamp set.

If you arrived here from Kim's blog, then you are in the right place! Below is my mini canvas that I have created using this set. I am getting more and more into altered pieces and I wanted to try my hand at a simple  home decor item. This set was perfect for just that.

Hope you have enjoyed the Blog Hop so far, but you aren't done yet! Next stop is to visit Jean's blog to see her creation. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Scrappin'!

Happy New Year!

I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! I look forward to all that 2013 will bring and I know this will be a year to remember!

I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and tell me what you are looking forward to in 2013.  I am really looking forward to what this year will bring with my family. I am one of those lucky girls who is married to the man of my dreams and we will celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary this year. My 2 girls are getting older and I thoroughly enjoy spending time with them. And you know what else, they still like to spend time with me too!  haha! I also have a niece that will be a year old this month and I love watching her enjoy every moment of life.

I truly hope 2013 brings all of us everything we could ever ask for. And with each blessing we are given, we can give back as well.

Thank you for being part of my scrappin' adventures and I look forward to many more!
