National Papercrafting Month Is Coming Soon! We Have A Cardmaking Kit ~ Cloud Nine!

Close To My Heart is having a super fun special starting on Wednesday and going until the end of January 2014...since it's National Papercrafting Month coming up. They put together a really cute cardmaking kit called "Cloud Nine". I think you are really going to love it!

 
So, check out this flyer for all the details! It's available starting January 1st...and remember, we always have a Stamp Of The Month...which, if you add a little more to your order you can get it at the discounted rate (I'm all about the deals! Love them!). Ps. I started putting my kit together...it's pretty easy to do and once I finish I'll share the cards with you!

Who Wouldn't Like Warm Winter Wishes?

I hope everyone had a few days off to enjoy their family (Merry Christmas to those who celebrate Christmas). I thought I'd share one more gift idea. I know it's past the holidays but this idea can be used for any theme gift that you might need. You can change the stamp set to fit the theme. I filled the container with cookies that I baked and a few peppermints to give it a holiday feel. It's just a little something to show I appreciate the person I gave the gift to. I think it came out cute.

Holiday Gift Idea ~ Beautiful Necklace Charms

I thought today I'd share the necklace charms I made for a bunch of my holiday gifts. I thought you guys might be interested in how I made them since I've had a few people ask me already. I used metal washers (from Home Depot). I used a black Sharpie on the rim (you could leave that off if you're ok with the silver washer side showing). I cut the paper to fit the circle (I hand cut because I was too lazy to pull out my Cricut and try to figure out the sizes). Then I used liquid glass (Z679) on both sides (you need to make sure it's 100% dry on one side before you do the other or it won't come out good). Once it was completely dry on both sides I put the string on (got that at the local craft store). Then I put them on the little card you get from inside the Polar Pals Card Kit (X8627) and used those cards as the holiday card to go with the gift. :)

Ps. As a side note: I saw one of the people that my daughter gave them to yesterday (they were for school teachers as their holiday gift) and she already had her's on and in the pouring rain just had to tell how much she loved it. Made my day (even getting totally wet).  

 
 
The top picture was the front side and the bottom picture was the back side. I made them 2 different designs so they could change them up once in a while.

Holiday Candy Gift Ideas ~ Look At How Cute These Are!

I thought today I'd share a few holiday gifts I made...I'm still working on another project (necklace charms) which I'll try to share on Friday. These are for my daughter's guy teachers. They are boxes of chocolate that I made a cute cover for. I used a stamp set "Wintry Wishes" (C1560) that you can only buy with hostess credits. So if you like the set and want to get it you need to hold a party (only good until January 31, 2014...after that this set will not be available even with the earned rewards).


I also made some cute tags with this set. I filled treat tubes (Z1823) with snowcap candy and added a little red shimmer trim tape (Z1848). These are for the guys that keep my daughter's school and my son's school nice and clean. Gotta take care of them too during the holidays. I like to tell everyone at their schools that I appreciate them. Just a little something to say "Thank You! Have a great holiday!"

Ps. The little pieces of yellow paper is covering up their name...if you are wondering. :)

Great Winter Time Cards!

I thought I'd share a few more ideas today on what you can make using the "Frosted" Paper Pack (X7175B). The two stamp sets used are "Christmas Village" (D1554) and "Classy Doily" (B1424). What I love about these cards are that they don't have to be used as Christmas cards if you didn't want them for that...they are just great winter time cards.

So in years to come when my house is still
Beautiful memories it's rooms may fill.

Sneak Peek!!! Picture My Life ~ Find Out How You Can Earn It For Free!

I thought I'd share this today with you...it's super exciting! It's a new program (sneak peek!) that Close To My Heart is bringing out in the next catalog. I just love CTMH! We have so many great products...if you like to stamp, make wearable art, make home décor items, paper craft, cards...CTMH has you covered! But if you're like me...and you like to scrapbook...then you'll LOVE all the options that are available.

Close To My Heart has hands-down the best products for scrapbooking. Everything is coordinated so you just pick which paper pack / colors that work for your project and it's all so easy. Everything goes together...you pick the paper pack and the catalog will let you know which stamp sets, ink, assortments match up. You can use the How-To books for finding easy layouts too. It's all set up to make it fun, fast, and easy if you're a traditional scrapbooker.

But there are some who are just too busy to scrapbook but still want to preserve their memories...so CTMH brought out Studio J. It's all digital. You don't have to download any programs into your computer. It's easy to use and you can scrapbook anywhere you have your computer / internet service. If you haven't checked it out yet...you should (and shipping is cheap too if you ship your layouts all together).     

Well, now CTMH has done it again...they found that some don't want to make single page 12x12 layouts...they don't have the time or maybe enough pictures to fill out the layouts. So, they are bringing out a "Picture My Life" program! What a great addition to our scrapbook line-up! I can't wait to get my hands on this! I am planning to mix it in with my scrapbook layouts to make my book even more fun to look at.

So, right now, they are offering a special: from November 1st to December 15th, 2013 join my team and submit qualifying personal sales,*you’ll receive a stunning new product, the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program—FREE! I'd love for you to be on my team ~ Paper Paradise! If you have any questions just contact me! I know you'll love CTMH as much as I do!

Quote Book ~ A Poem To Add To Your Book ~ Halloween

Today I'm sharing a poem for our "Quote Books".


Halloween
It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night.
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gown we haunt the street
And knock on doors for trick or treat.
Tonight we are the king and queen,
For oh tonight it's Halloween!

Wishing you an evening full of moonlight and magic!
 
 
I thought I would share this poem today since we are close to Halloween and I'll have lots of pictures I'll need to scrapbook. Anyway, don't forget to stop back again for more quotes or poems next week. Hope you enjoy this poem!  (Ps. I found this poem at scrapbook.com)

Cute Candy Gift Ideas ~ For Halloween and Winter Time Fun! Great For Stocking Stuffers!

I thought today I'd share a few more items I made for the craft event I was at on Saturday. I made these cute candy gifts. Some were for Halloween (I used a retired stamp set)...they were covered gum packs and some were tubes (Z1823) filled with jelly beans. I made a few using the stamp set (Polar Bear Holiday, C1557) for the winter holidays too. They came out adorable I thought.

I Am In LOVE ~ Season's Tweetings Gift Bag Kit!!

I thought today I'd share a few more items I made for the craft event I'll be at on October 19th. I made these cute gift bags with tags (and filled the bags with peppermint candy). These are from an adorable kit (Season's Tweetings Gift Bag Kit, Z1913) that you can buy from the mini catalog. You receive 6 bags, 9 tags, and an super, duper cute stamp set! All of that for just $14.95! 

This stamp set can also be used to make holiday cards too...they would be easy to put together. If you would like to do a workshop let me know and we can get it on the schedule!

The first picture shows the kit before I got started with it. The 2nd picture shows you a few bags and the tags (I had to go to the store to get more candy to finish filling the rest of the bags). Adorable is the word that keeps coming to my mind...what do you think?



Ps. Reminder: If you're in the San Diego area and want to stop in to say hi and see these items in person...please stop over! I'll be at Santee Christian Church, 8410 Fanita Dr. ~ 9am - 3pm.

Quote Book ~ A Poem To Add To Your Book ~ A Zoo

Today I'm sharing a poem for our "Quote Books".


 A Zoo

The polar bears
so white and strong...
The spot neck giraffe
with a stance so long...
Monkey that swing
by their tails in trees...
The big grey elephant
with the wrinkled knees...
Let's take pictures
of one or two,
Oh, please,
let's go to the Zoo.
 
 
 
I thought I would share this poem today since I was at the Zoo yesterday with my family. We even got to see a Polar Bear up close. Anyway, don't forget to stop back again for more quotes or poems next week. Hope you enjoy this poem!  (Ps. I found this poem at scrapbook.com)

Close To My Heart is having a special (with a special mini catalog!) starting October 15th (until December 31st). It's called "Holidays From The Heart". Look HERE to see the flyer. This is your chance to get a fabulous deal...and products that are not in the current catalog! Some of the items are only while supplies last so don't wait if you see something you want (and I KNOW you will!!) buy it as soon as the 15th! HERE is the catalog so you can check it out and put your order together!

 
And, the deal...along with getting extra fun, special products...you can earn a FREE STAR item with a $100 order (from this catalog and the current catalog) (I got the cute Santa Stamp C1567). I already bought some of the items (one of the perks for being a consultant, you get items before everyone else) and started making projects to show off (so make sure to stop back next week to see them!) You are going to LOVE the Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack (X7176B), the Washi Tape (Z1907) that matches, the stamp sets, the Season's Tweetings Gift Bag Kit (Z1913), and the Hip Pics Album Kit (Z1915) too!

Quote Book ~ A Poem To Add To Your Book ~ Autumn Delight

Today I'm sharing a poem for our "Quote Books".


 Autumn Delight

Crunchy leaves; a coolness in the air;
Rich deep colors and branches so bare.
Clear starry skies; a harvest moon bright;
Pumpkins, haystacks and scarecrow’s delight!
 
 
I thought I would share this poem today because I thought it would look good on a tag or inside a card. Plus I have a cute scarecrow stamp from last year that would look adorable with this poem. Anyway, don't forget to stop back again for more quotes or poems next week. Hope you enjoy this poem!  (Ps. I found this poem at scrapbook.com)

Cookie Sheet Magnet Boards ~ Made For A Craft Event

I thought today I'd share a few more items I made for the craft event I'll be at on October 19th. (If you're in the San Diego area and want to stop in to say hi and see these items in person...please stop over! I'll be at Santee Christian Church, 8410 Fanita Dr. ~ 9am - 3pm) I made these cute magnet boards...they come with a note pad and a few magnets. I also made a few more magnets for those who already have magnet boards and just want some magnets. What do you think?
