CTMH January SOTM

Welcome to a brand new year! Can you believe its 2019 already?! How has the new year treated you so far? I rang in the new year with a wicked cold. I’m still not sure I’m over it yet, but I feel way better than I did two days ago. The year can only go up from here!

There’s a lot to look forward to this year. There’s even a lot to look forward to this month! Starting with the new stamp of the month. I’m currently waiting on my SOTM to arrive. I should have it sometime next week, and shortly afterwards, I’ll have artwork to share using it! I’m also waiting on Heart Happy, an exclusive paper packet that came out this month. You’ll have to wait on artwork using that, too! In the mean time, I can show you the artwork Corp created using both these products. I will be away tomorrow, and unavailable again on Saturday, so I’m taking advantage of the time I currently have to share with you!

How cute is this card?! First, I’m loving the color combination- pink, grey and black looks so smart together! Secondly, the watercolored background is a lot of fun, and lastly, the squares and stitching look great, too. I love it all! I think I’ll be lifting this- or, at least, turning it into a layout. I can’t wait!

This card showcases a lot of stamping from the stamp set, and I think its absolutely adorable. Did you know the thread is new to CTMH? Its pretty popular, too! Lots of people love working with it. Find it at the back of the catalog, along with all the ribbons we currently have in stock. The squares and rectangle you see in both cards are from one of our Thin Cut sets. They’re a hot ticket item, and I think will sell fast!

I suppose you’re wondering what the actual stamp set looks like, and I suppose I should show it to you! That sounds like a great idea.

Look at all those beautiful fonts, all the wonderful sentiments, and all the ways you could use it to customize the perfect card for your friends and family! Everything you need in just one stamp set! The little heart and Just a Note are speaking to me. I can’t wait to get them onto a project! Sending you sunshine and rainbows, too. The number of ways to use this stamp set is endless. How would you use it?

This stamp set is $24.75 CAD if you buy it on its own, with nothing else in your shopping cart. When you add a few more items to your cart, when you shop online, it drops to $6 when your order total reaches $50. The same discount applies when you order through me, as well. Isn’t that an amazing deal?! That’s like a 75% discount! Its our way of saying thank you for supporting us, and we hope to see you again!

There’s only a limited time to purchase this stamp set, before another one takes its place. From now until January 31, you can take this stamp set home for just $6 (unless you just want the stamp set. That’s ok, too!) If you try to order it after that, a new one will be in its place! You’ll be too late! I can guarantee you won’t want to miss out on this stamp set. There’s so much you could create with it, for a wide variety of reasons! Why wouldn’t you want such versatile stamp set in your stash?!

Also available this month is Heart Happy. This exclusive paper collection has me all googly eyed because of the colors and patterns in it. Its perfect for your galentines, valentines and more! I’m really digging the artwork, too.

The card with the pie chart in it???? I’m all 😍 over it and the tags in this kit. Yes, tags are included in this kit! They’re all super duper cute! So, in addition to layouts, and cards, you’ll also get to create a bunch of adorbs tags, too! That’s thinking outside the box- I’m not aware of any other kit CTMH has produced thats ever included something like this. You know how else they take it a step further? You’ve got two options for purchasing Heart Happy. Choose either the kit above, or the kit below!

Heart Happy is available in Everyday Life mini album form! How great is that! Just like the Days of December album was specifically designed to memorialize your Christmas season, the Heart Happy one follows closely in its footsteps! Now you just need to decide whether you want the coordinating stamp set to come with your kit, or separately! (I personally suggest ordering it with it. Its a better deal).

What’s the price point for something like this? Well, lets take a look at it.

There’s your options, with the stamp set and without, including a closer look at what the actual stamp set looks like. Just keep in mind that this exclusive offer is only available until the end of January (the 31st). I ordered the workshop kit, but all the options are fantastic!

There’s lots to look forward to this month!

CTMH Kitchen Traditions Cut Above Kit

Getting back to you took way longer than I anticipated. Life. It’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it?

Here’s what I wasn’t able to share with you earlier. Remember this layout?

I created it using a mixture of Whimsy and Basics Fundamentals. The coordinating Whimsy complements and our stamp of the month, Bloom & Grow, made sneak appearances, too.

Since it’s been so long, you may not remember the post where I shared the Gimme Some Sugar layout and the promise I made in that post. View it here.

The coordinating set to Gimme Some Sugar comes from the Kitchen Traditions Cut Above kit! Available as a set or separately, preserve your cherished recipes and their authors in this stunning collection.

The price may seem daunting, but it’s worth every penny. It’s actually a great deal for all you’ll get with it. Aside from the recipe cards (sixty 4×6 cards), page protectors (10), stickers (2 sticker sheets) and Bashful Everyday Life album, you’ll also receive the coordinating stamp set, which on its own is over $20! Great value, if I do say so myself.

Kick off National Paper crafting month with CTMH Love Letters. It comes as a kit and includes flower die cuts, rose gold accents, sturdy chipboard letter bases and letter stickers. Choose any letters you want; purchase 5 and get the 6th free! OR, join my team and it’ll be added to your consultant kit- whichever kits you choose! I think that’s great incentive for joining!

Thanks for your patience and joining me today!

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?)

Visit my website to save! http://www.theeverydayscrapbooker.ctmh.ca

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!

Summer Adventure Fundamentals Kids Workshop

Hello friends! Just dropping in briefly to share some highlights from yesterday’s Adventure Fundamentals Everyday Life Album workshop. Enjoy!

Three of yesterday’s participants want to have a Christmas themed workshop- they want to keep adding to their albums! So, stay tuned for another KID friendly Everyday Life workshop!

(For those that are returning, this event will be a continuation of what we started- but we’ll be playing with Christmas products, instead. If you’re new, it’ll be a new event to you).
