CTMH Fundamentals Sale

Great news! During the month of November, receive 40% off your order when you purchase any of the Fundamentals bundles at Close to My Heart. If you don’t want the bundle, that’s ok because you’ll receive 30% off individual Fundamentals products. Bundles are made up of a Paper Packet, Complements and ribbon. “Individual” means purchasing any of those items on their own. Good deal, right?!

A couple months ago, I put together a mini album to use as a sample for an upcoming workshop I hosted. I used one of the Fundamentals bundles, and I thought sharing it would be a great way to show you how the fundamentals look when it’s in use. 

We used the Adventure Fundamentals Paper Packet, coordinating Happy Moments Complements and Adventure Ribbon pack. 




I included the prices in the pictures, so you could see how much they are while you drool over the colours and patterns. 

Below is what I created using these products. Keep in mind, the pages are 6×8 inches- much smaller than what I normally work with!









I chose the Adventure Fundamentals solely for the name- I thought it would work well to document whatever adventures happened during the summer. I also thought the kids would like the bright colours. I loved the soft watercolored patterns and the vibrant colours to match.

The next bundle I want to get is the Basics bundle! All I can say about it is pretty! It’s full of feminine patterns and just the right touch of pink to make it utterly classy. 


This is a graphic of all the bundles, but you’ll see the Basics in the top left corner. Yummy, right?! How dreamy is the cloud complement in the bottom left? That must be why dream is on it, because that’s what it is! Dreamy!

Anyway, which is your favourite? Which would you buy first? (Or are you like me and feel like you need it all?)

I’m organizing an order that I’d like to place tomorrow. Any Canadian residents that want to add to it can comment below with their requests and you’ll save an additional couple dollars on shipping just for adding to my group order! If you miss tomorrow, that’s alright. Gather a couple friends and place your order together. The same deal will apply. Saving on the Fundamentals products lasts until November 30, 2017. Don’t miss out!

CTMH Beary Christmas Album Workshop

Happy Tuesday! I’m working in high gear this week trying to get caught up and this weeks’ chores done before we head to the city again on Thursday (actually tomorrow night) for more appointments. Life is good, but so crazy these days! We have a wind warning for this afternoon, as well- I’m not looking forward to my hair being blown to smithereens. All that work this morning for nothing! Hopefully it doesn’t hit us until we’re done gymnastics tonight- at 7:30. Then it can blow all it wants. Has the wind hit your area yet?

So, my workshop last weekend was a success. All of the girls enjoyed scrapbooking and are looking forward to the next event. The wheels in the attic were turning while the girls were over, and I asked them how they felt about possibly adding to their current albums (if their parents were ok with it, of course). They thought it sounded like a good idea. I ran it past all of the parents involved, and they are game for an add-on, too.

So, introducing my newest workshop, scheduled for January 2018- Beary Christmas (Everyday Life) Album Workshop. Its for kids only, from ages 5 to 11, and its just $26 + the cost of shipping unless you invite a friend that confirms his or her attendance. Then shipping is free! (You’ll get $10 off your order). Great deal and good incentive, right?! I think so! I created this workshop with the girls that attended my last workshop in mind, but that doesn’t mean newcomers can’t participate, either! Newcomers just need to add the cost of their Everyday Life Mini Album to the total ($26). There’s three beautiful albums to choose from! Everything else is supplied. (Think tape, paper trimmer, Beary Christmas dots, coordinating cardstock and patterned paper, etc.) We’ll set aside a couple hours to get our craft on, a snack will be provided (there’s no extra cost for that!!), and I promise your kids will not want to leave. They didn’t want to leave this past weekend- in fact, one of the girls is coming over again this Saturday for an impromptu crop with the twins. Fun, right?! I might even join in the fun this time!

Want to see the materials we’ll be using to create our Christmas pages with? See below:


Next up- the extra supplies I’ll have on hand for the kids to use (no extra cost):


And, if I have newcomers to the workshop, here’s the album choices:

Choose your favourite album- you only need one! I love both the Sea Glass and Bashful albums (mint and baby pink), but the kids all seemed to love the Black and White stripes. Go figure! The Bashful album will only be available for a limited time (as is the Sea Glass, I believe), so I vote for either of them!

Thanks for joining me today! If you’re interested in signing your child up for this event, please comment below. The deadline to register is December 28, 2017. (To register, please send the workshop fee + $10 CAD for shipping to theeverydayscrapbooker@gmail.com via email transfer. The supplies will be ordered on your behalf on December 29, 2017, allowing enough time for it to ship and still get here on time!) Only available to residents of Whitecourt and/or Edmonton, Alberta.

See you again soon!
