Farewell to May!

Hi guys! Wow, its Wednesday already! Where does time go?!

Before I dive in to sharing with you what I’ve been up to recently, I’ve got some news to share with you. We’re having a Flash Sale today! We’re celebrating Close to My Heart’s 35th anniversary in the paper crafting industry, and we want to celebrate with you! Starting at 3 pm MST, receive up to 35% off select product, and as always, its while supplies last. During these sales, items fly literally off the shelves (people find that items they had in their shopping cart disappear when they’re ready to finalize their orders), so do not wait. Don’t be one of the casualties that has items mysteriously disappear out of their shopping carts before they’re done shopping. Its frustrating, and I would hate for it to happen to you!

Where do you find the sale? There’s two ways: visit my facebook page, and hit ‘Shop Now’ at the top of the page there (it’ll bring you straight to my Close to My Heart website), or go directly to my Close to My Heart website by following this link. Looking forward to seeing you there!

I should note that anyone that places an order during the flash sale will receive a set of 3 mini (3×3) pre-cut greeting cards they can assemble themselves! That offer ends at midnight tonight!

I’ve been very busy in my haven, and I’m excited to share what I’ve created. Have a look!

Pocket page scrapbookers- Here’s looking at you! I wanted to offer something that may inspire you, so I’m creating Project Life/PML- style layouts the traditional way. I don’t currently have PML Memory Protectors, so I’m doing my best to make lemonade from lemons! Stay tuned for more artwork in this area in the coming day!

Next week, I’d like to share the fall workshop schedule, as well as what’s on tap for the month of June. I hope you’ll join me! Till then, stay inspired!

CTMH Saffron Be Thankful Layout

Hello friends! Welcome to December!  Our elf, Snowflake joined us today but my kids don’t know it yet. She left thrm some oreos and hot chocolate (k-cups) to snack on when they come in from playing outside. Do you participate in this tradition?


I just had to scrapbook this picture of little miss A. It was the morning of her second birthday party (A few days prior to her actual birthdate) and we were preparing for a huge bash. In the pic, she was waiting patiently for her breakfast.


I layered some Jillibean Soup,  EP and CTMH cardstock papers, as well as created the title using corkboard letters I found at the dollarama. I cut the pumpkin with my cricut and layered thanksgiving stickers on top of it.
I hope you join me again soon for another layout!
If you like CTMH products and are interested in learning more about the products, please visit me on Facebook or visit my CTMH website. During the month of December, there are fun contests, sales and giveaways happening- check them out! Notably, this week ONLY is CTMH’s CYBER WEEK sale.

Hi, hello friends! How is everyone enjoying the wonderful  horrendous snow we’ve been experiencing all over Alberta (by now)? Has the southerners gotten it yet? I would tell you how much snow we got yesterday, but that’ll ruin the challenge I have happening over on my business page! What would that be, you ask?

I didn’t think it was possible, but I *finally* reached 750 fans! Yes! To celebrate, I’m holding a small giveaway, and you’re invited to play along, too! The rules are simple: answer the question (without cheating), and I’ll pick the winner that either correctly guesses the answer, or is nearest to it. The winner will receive a card kit, valued at $15 CAD (including shipping). Not too shabby! Its open to everyone; the more that play, the merrier! Tell your friends!


How much snow fell on Whitecourt (my hometown) on Monday (yesterday)?

Contest closes on Friday at 11:59 pm MST. The winner will be announced on Saturday. Either submit your answer here (by way of comment), or visit my business page to enter to win. It will be the pinned post at the top of the page.

Good luck, and I hope you play along!
