CTMH Dad is Rad

Introducing CTMH Dad is Rad! This kit features card stock in varying shades, a sheet of gold glitter paper, card bases and envelopes, ribbon, those super duper cute bows AND a stamp set! All for $38 CAD. It’s ideal for all the men in your life, whoever fills the role of dad to you. The best part is that when you purchase the kit, you’ll get the coordinating cutting guide free! Free is good. I like free. Don’t you?!

Create all this- and more- using the items from the kit above. Did you notice the papers’ torn edges in the layouts above? Doesn’t it look great? I have to admit, that’s a technique I don’t use often enough, but it packs quite the punch! All our cardstock has a white core, so it adds to the effect. I think it’s the perfect touch for a masculine layout. How would you use the papers in this kit? Tell me, in the comments below! I’d love to know!

This kit is available right now! It went ‘live’ a couple days ago, but you have until June 30, 2018 to snatch it up! It’ll be on my next order. Would you like to add to it? Give me a raised 🤚 if you would!! You can visit my website to order yourself, too. My website is open 24/7, 365 days a year. Order In your pj’s or otherwise, whatever floats your boat 🚣‍♀️. I’m pretty good at answering comments and private messages, too. Just saying 😉

Beautiful Friendship Grad Layouts

I have so much to share with you- and it’s all so amazing!

To start, I just wanted to share what I’ve been playing with recently. I can’t get enough of the new collection Beautiful Friendship. Have you seen it?! Not only can you use it to create layouts of the ladies in your life, it also works for grad layouts! I discovered that by accident 😃

Don’t be fooled- these layouts weren’t for a girl. Flowers can work on boy layouts too! Honestly, it feels pretty good to have this album done. It took awhile to finish it, but I’m happy with the final result.

I’ll be back again soon to share everything that’s happening a Close To My Heart these days!

CTMH Beautiful Friendship

Have you seen Beautiful Friendship yet?

Oh my gosh, the colors make it so warm and charming, and the patterns are the perfect mixture of bold and subtle. This collection from CTMH is ideal for all the ladies in your life, big and small!

The picture of this collection does it no justice. You need to see it in person. Stunning! For real, it does all the speaking for itself. See it in action below.

I used the cutting guide and instructions that comes with the scrapbooking kit, but re-imagined it (slightly) so that it works with my pictures. That’s the beauty of the kits- they’re meant to jumpstart your creative juices and help you along when in a rut.

This collection is currently available to purchase on my CTMH website. The entire kit is $38 and includes ribbon, those adorbs suede (seriously, they feel like it!!) bows, the stickers and chipboard, plus 24 sheets of all that sumptuous patterned paper.

You can create 4 traditional layouts, two PML layouts and a shwack -load of cards (optional) to boot! Once that’s done, you’ll still have supplies leftover. The paper in this kit goes a loooong ways.

Like it? Love it? I sure do. I added the coordinating stamp set to the scrapbooking kit for another $23. If card making is more your cup of tea (you’ll find lots of that in this collection), add the card making stamp set and coordinating Thin Cuts instead. Find it all on my website right now!

Convinced yet? I think the suede bows is enough of a good reason to purchase this collection. But, that’s just me. You’ve got to feel them. So soft and warm feeling!!

More CTMH Postcard Perfect

I played with Postcard Perfect some more today!

Look at all those bright and warm colours, and that stunning vellum! And, as I said before, I’ll be hoarding this paper. I just love it too much.

In the top layout, I used one of the icons from the cut apart sheet of paper. It just jumps off the page!

This paper collection is coming to you next week! Yes, next week already! April has just flown by, and I’m super excited to share all May has in store for us! Keep coming back here- right here– to learn more!

CTMH Postcard Perfect

Hi everyone, I have a new project to share today! It feels so good to switch gears and focus on layouts for a change! (I’ve been hung- ho for cards for the last little bit).

There’s a special paper packet that’s coming available in May, and I think you’re going to love it. It’s called Postcard Perfect, and it’ll compliment your summer and vacation pictures perfectly! Think palm trees, hibiscus, waves, vellum, and more!

Yes, it’s got vellum- and it’s printed vellum! It’s to die for!

Doesn’t it just scream exotic vacation?! If you have none of those, like me, don’t fret. These papers will compliment your closer-to-Home vacation photos too. They’ll even compliment non-vacation photos!

In this layout, I paired a retired stamp with the coordinating stamp and papers from this collection. Don’t those waves remind you of the ocean? Your favourite lake, maybe?

Join me again in the near future for more projects using this special, limited time only paper packet. Yes, limited time. Available only from May1-31, 2018.

CTMH Gimme Some Sugar

I have some more artwork to share with you today. I’m excited to share it with you!

The featured paper packet at CTMH this month is Gimme Some Sugar. Have you seen it yet?

Pictured above is the entire scrapbook kit.

And here’s the coordinating scrapbook stamp set.

Until now, I’ve played only with the bulk paper from the packet. I’ve decided that I should show you the whole kit and caboodle. So, here’s what I’ve got, so far!

I have another layout in the works, but I’m not quite finished it yet. Stay tuned!

This picture of my daughter worked well with one of the journaling cards from the cut apart paper in the kit. She lost her tooth at school- while eating her lunch- and consequently swallowed it. She was terrified the tooth fairy wouldn’t visit, so she wrote a letter to her, with the help of her teacher.

I’m excited to share more with you from this kit! Hope to see you again soon!

CTMH Postcard Perfect

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share some artwork with you today! Do you have pictures of a vacation you took in an exotic location- or just a fab vacation that you’ve been waiting for the perfect papers to scrapbook them on?

This will interest you if you’re one of those people! I have to admit, I had to go searching for anything even remotely holiday related, but I did find a couple pictures in my pile to scrapbook 😃

The beaches and margaritas are calling…they want you to join them for rest and relaxation. Or, at least, re-live your rest and relaxation on the beaches, or on your cruise, or in the remote wilderness of Alaska. I re-lived beach day at school a couple years ago. The twins dressed up in their grass skirts and lei’s for the occasion.

I’m so excited to share this paper packet and coordinating stamp set with you! All the papers in it are reminiscent of the beach- from wavy patterns, to Hawaiian floral patterns, to super cute itty bitty polka dot bikini type of patterns (no bikinis, just polka dots).

The best part of the paper packet is that there’s 4 sheets of printed vellum in it! There’s a gorgeous palm leaf pattern and another polka dot pattern! There’s two sheets of each of those patterns! There’s also two sheets of a cutaway paper that adds the perfect accent pieces to your projects!

All the sheets in the paper packet- and there’s 24 of them- are printed on both sides, so you’ll get twice the mileage of one sided sheets! There’s also a wide range of colours that coordinates with it- including mint, white daisy, peacock, and our colour of the year- bashful. You’ll see those four colours displayed in my layout above.

The stamp set has a variety of images and phrases to choose from, too. I created a sort of vintage- Las Vegas-esque postcard to the right of my pictures using them. So, the palm trees, let’s go image and adventure awaits image are all included. So is the hisbiscus flowers, as well!

Want to get your hands on this exclusive kit? It’s available May 1! Contact me to order yours- I’d love to hook you up! And, in the mean time, stay tuned for more inspiring artwork!

April SOTM- Colour Your Life

I didn’t share everything that’s happening at CTMH this month. I thought spreading it out might be a good idea, too!

There is a new stamp of the month for April, too! I love that CTMH highlights one stamp set every month, and attacheS such fantastic savings to it, too!

Savings, you say?

Yes, this stamp set- on its own- is $23 CAD. It’s a D-size stamp set, meaning it’s one of the larger stamp sets we carry. When you purchase this size stamp set with other items equaling $50, the price drops to just $6. That’s where the savings comes in. Pretty great deal, right?

I can’t help but see opportunity with this stamp set. Opportunity to colour, heat emboss, and watercolour. Life, Courage and Kind are great for colouring in using pencil crayons, markers, pens and watercolours. Some of the icons would look great coloured in or water coloured, too. All the italicized words and some of the icons would look so pretty embossed. I guess that’s why it’s named Colour Your Life! What kind of potential do you see in it?

If you’d like to purchase this stamp set, visit my Close to My Heart website. Look for the Fabulous April! party on my homepage. Click ‘join’ and start shopping away!
