Olaf

I have one last layout to share with you this morning. I used up more of the delicious Chelsea Gardens paper to create it.

There is a bit of blue stitching on Olaf’s foot in the picture, and I wanted to pull that colour into the rest of the page. Chelsea Gardens could do just that.

I found these adorable Scottish terriers on my Cricut, and used them to create a border near the bottom of the page. I added a moustache for a bit of fun. Lastly, I cut the circle, Olaf’s name and the bone all with my Cricut.

So simple and super cute.

Freddie has a love-hate relationship with his Olaf’s that just kills us. He brings him to bed and loves on him until it’s time to sleep. You should hear the whining that comes out of him 😃 We love it!

Hopefully I’ll be back soon with more creativity to share with you!

Fine & Dandy

Dropping in quickly to share yet another layout with you!

Once a year, I get the privilege to spend the weekend with my friends and scrap from sun up until sun down. It’s the one weekend per year that I look forward to. I snapped this selfie while I was waiting around in the parking lot to find out where we were supposed to be staying and playing. (It changes slightly from year to year).

I mixed Stargazer with Beary Christmas again. If you have coral shimmer trim, did you know it coordinates perfectly with the Beary Christmas paper, as well. The colour very closely resembles Poppy, which is the colour ink I used to stamp the flowers.

I’m hoping to find time to join you again tomorrow. I have one more layout to share with you. Until then, enjoy your day!

Oh My Stars

Here in my neck of the woods, it’s Family day. We were going to go out to watch a movie, but no one was interested in getting ready to go. So, we enjoyed a relaxing day at home. I got to play some more. Yay!

I got this stamp set- the Gimme Some Sugar scrapbooking stamp set- as a gift from my upline. Looking through the catalog, I didn’t think I’d get much use out of it, but I’ve proven myself wrong! It worked well on this layout, and another I hope to share tomorrow with you.

I mixed Stargazer with our (now) retired Beary Christmas Paper. Honestly, I think they were meant to be paired together. It’s a perfect match! I played up the ‘Shining Star’ portion of my daughters school award by making the title ‘oh my stars’ and stamping stars around it. It’s hard to see, but the little word bubble says, ‘are you kitten me’? So stinking cute. 😊

By the way, how great does Pacifica cardstock look with all that papery yumminess? It’s s nice change from using a Glacier all the time!

Hey Y’all

Hello friends, just wanted to share a layout with you that I created.

Pretty in Pink is in full force still, and I’m trying to create projects with that in mind. Believe it or not, this layout was made entirely of scraps I already had on hand. Look at all that pretty pink! It’s perfect for a pic of Bella with her best puppy friend Freddie. 😃

It’s A Circus

Friends! Happy Saturday!

I have a new layout to share with you today. I made it for myself. NOT for a workshop. How great is that?! 😃

My life is a circus these days. I’m sure some of you can relate. 😳

At least this circus is one that everyone would look forward to. It came to town a few years back. We watched as they set up their tents- it was a great way to build anticipation and excitement. When the day finally came for us to go see it, we were nearly bursting at the seams. It was a lot of fun. One day we’ll make it back 😊

I used some Stargazer to create this spread, and paired some Beary Christmas and poppy cardstock with it. It looks great together! The ticket and title located inside it, and the sweet little elephant, were all cut with my Cricut. It’s saved to my Cricut, but is not set to public. It could be…if anyone wants to create this layout, too! Comment below 😉

CTMH Pretty in Pink

February is going to be a busy month. Not like January wasn’t, just in a different way. Last month was full of family drama (for lack of a better word); this month will be full of CTMH business action! I’m excited and overwhelmed and nervous. So, even though I haven’t been checking in here, I have been busy. Wanna see?

First, I should mention that February is Pretty in Pink month at Close to My Heart. Select pink and gold product bundles are 30% off their regular price, while select individual items are 25% off. There are great products in this campaign! Go have a look- it’s on my website now! (Link will be provided at the bottom of this post.

With February’s constant campaign in mind, I created these projects:

I do have another motive for creating these projects, one of which is a home gathering that’s coming up in a couple weeks. (That’s the cards). The layouts are for another event that’s coming up, and it’s got me overwhelmed. And honoured. This is a huge opportunity for me. (And the cards actually. They’re pulling double duty). I won’t share more than that about my huge opportunity until I get the official word.

That’s all for now. I’ll have more to share again soon! Thanks for joining me today!

Friends Always

Hello friends! I’m dropping in to share another two page layout with you!

I’m crushing hard on Gimme Some Sugar. I love the colour pairings, the pattern (the flowers are great for fussy cutting and using as embellishments. Did you know that?!); it’s bright, fresh and summery. I can almost smell summer with this paper. (The pictures enable me to hear the sounds from the event- rodeo- we were at, too. I love it).

This layout is the third instalment in my layout Buffet. It’s coming up on March 24, from 5-8 pm. Kids are welcome- childcare is free at Bugz & Beanerz on Wednesday evenings! If you’re in the area, treat yourself to an evening out!

Join me again tomorrow so I can share the last project we’ll be making. You won’t want to miss it!

Out of This World

Happy Wednesday. How did we get here so quickly? A minute ago it was Monday! I’m currently working on another project, but wanted to take a quick break to show you my latest layout.

How cute is this paper?! It’s called Stargazer, and it’s perfect for all your astronomy lovers, boys and science geeks! (My daughter is one of them). I tried tying horses and space together…how did I do? 😂

This was their first experience riding a horse, and I’m sure they’d tell you it was out of this world. Their minds were blown, and frequently ask when they can go again.

This is project two in my layout buffet. Stay tuned to see more. More is coming!

XOXO Layout

I have a new layout to share with you today. I scraplifted myself when I created it, using the new Gimme Some Sugar paper to put it together.

I haven’t filled in the journaling yet, and I’m not really sure why. I came upstairs from my haven to snap this picture before I got that done, I guess. I’ll fill it in at some point- before it’s put into an album, likely.

This layout is available as a bonus kit for those that are attending the layout buffet on March 14. If you’d like to make this yourself, all that’s required is to purchase the supplies I used and I’ll email you the instructions for free. (There’s only four items on this supply list). Embellish as you see fit!
