August with Close to My Heart

There is a lot going on over at Close to My Heart this month! Boy, its going to be an exciting month! There’s a few things I can’t wait to get my hands on- such as the new Annual Inspirations catalog that was unveiled today- its available for purchase over on my website. You can also browse through it before you decide to purchase it. Check it out! I haven’t done it yet, but I’ve heard its filled to the brim with fabulous new products. (Which I wouldn’t doubt, because they always carry fabulous products!) I can’t wait to see what’s in it! (That will be next on my days’ to do list…)

Not only is there a new catalog to whet your appetite with, there’s also a new stamp of the month. I’ve been dying to order this stamp, because I’m working on improving my school themed scrapbook stash. This stamp set fits the bill, and I seriously can’t wait to play with it! When you place a qualifying order of $50 on my website (or with me), you’ll receive this stamp set for just $6. Its regularly $27 CAD. You can purchase it on its own, too.

School is definitely cool with this fantastic stamp set. How would you use it? I’m already envisioning it on my layouts and maybe some teacher appreciation cards, too. They’ll look so durn cute!

Lastly, if you noticed the image at the top of this post, you’ll know that Close to My Heart is also hosting a warehouse sale through the month of August. Every week the sale is different, so make sure to stop in every Tuesday to see what’s up for grabs. This week, you’ll find an ultimate embellishment bundle, Swan Lake paper packet and paper bundle, Thin Cuts bundles and more! All retired and all 50% off! I’ve got my eye on the Swan Lake paper bundle. But, don’t wait! These items are limited and will sell out fast! Message me to add to my monthly order, or head right now to my website to place your order. (You can find the link a bit further up in this blog post).

Also, I just want to remind you that I’ve got my own events coming up later this month and in September. I’ll share more details about them tomorrow, because I think this is enough info to absorb at the moment. But, seriously- don’t miss out! There’s a lot of fun stuff going on, and you should get yourself in on some of it. Some of it will stick around for the entire year, and some of it will only last for the week (possibly less). Get ‘er done!

Mid Summer Fiesta CTMH Online Crop

Summer is a busy time for a lot of people. It usually is for us, too, but it seems we have a lot of down time on our hands this year. We don’t have any real camping trips planned, and I couldn’t get the kids into swimming until late in August, so we’re scratching our heads on a (nearly) daily basis trying to think of things to do. Its also been hot, so we’ve been spending a lot of time in the basement, where its cool.

Even with all this downtime, I don’t seem to be able to get in my craft room for long- or at all. If I do, the words I hear most is ‘mom, mom, mom…’ and ‘I’m bored’. Tell me that again. I have LOTS to get done around here! I can easily put you to work! Can any mama’s relate? It wears a person down, especially when its on a constant basis.

I finally told my kids that I needed some ‘me time’ yesterday, and I played in my craft room for a couple of hours. While I was playing, an idea struck me. (Which also seems to account for the lack of playing in my craft room these days. The brain never stops working!) Sort of like the computer with 2785 tabs open meme that’s floating around these days. I know you can relate to that!

I have a couple card club workshops planned for September. Did you know that? I have one planned for my hometown, Whitecourt, and another for my home city, Edmonton. If you live in or around either of these areas, I’d love for you to join us! We’ll be creating 9 cards using three different designs. The club fee is $30 and covers all the materials you’ll need to create all those wonderful cards. It may also be less than $30. There will be times we’ll need less materials, so it won’t cost as much. It’ll also be a great time to meet new people and relax for a bit with out kids underfoot saying ‘mom, mom, mom…’. I’ll even provide the wine! How about that! Ha!

But, then another idea struck me. Why not host an online crop for those that are dying to get into their craft rooms, but aren’t able to, just like me? It’ll be a wonderful afternoon- gather whatever snacks and bevvies you want, skip on over to your craft area, turn on the computer, and join in the fun! I have a couple simple challenges planned (nothing more difficult than creating a card, layout- with a twist, of course- and an off the page project.) Anyone and everyone is welcome. If you don’t scrapbook or make cards, there’ll be something for you, too. And, the best part: there’ll be some prizes, too! Make sure to invite your friends and spread the word- there may be a prize for that, too. (The catch is they need to attend!) Your projects won’t need to be completed by the time the online crop is over. I’ll allow some time once the event is over for projects to be completed. Then I’ll draw prizes for the best project in each of those three categories. Doesn’t that sound enticing?! (I hope so!!)

The event is posted to my Facebook page– have you ever been there? Now is the time to check it out if you haven’t. If you scroll down a bit, you’ll find the event posting. If you can’t find it, comment on this post if you’re interested in joining! You’ll also find a bit of everything on my Facebook page, too- my projects, news, and blog posts. Get it all in one spot.

Even better, here’s the event posting. How’s that for efficiency!

Mark August 20 @ 1 pm (MST) on your calendars. That’s when all the fun begins.

*Just a note- there is NO fee to join the online crop. This is all just in the name of fun. The prizes will all be CTMH, as well. Depending on the popularity of this event, I may offer it every summer to kick off the pending years events’ following it. Join me and have some fun!

 

Five Ways to Use Your CTMH Scrap Papers

Since I got my new cell phone, I thought it would be a good idea to upload the pictures I’d taken to the computer. In less than a month, there was over 1400 pictures on my phone! I might be just a little camera crazy. I may have also been on vacation, and had a lot of things going on! LOL

And, since I uploaded the pictures from my phone to my computer, that also means whatever projects I had saved to my phone were also transferred to my computer. They were transferred out of order, unfortunately, and as a result, I accidentally shared a layout a bit sooner than I had planned. Minor little accident. I recovered the layouts that had been sent to my trash can on my phone, and will continue adding layouts here from there for the time being. There’ll be less confusion that way. Now I’ll be back to my regular order. I had better get some crafting done…I’m getting low on content to share with you!

So, back to Christmas in July. I have this layout and one other about Christmas in April, and then I’ll move on to something else.

Do you have a scrap pile that seems to keep growing instead of shrinking? Looking for ways to cull some of that scrap paper stash? Here are 5 ideas that I consistently use in my own crafting that you may find helpful!

Make your own journalling spots. I most often use my White Daisy card stock for things such as this, but I find that a lot of scraps end up in my box that are a good size for journaling on. (That’s usually about 3×4 or slightly larger). There’s still some room to stamp on the journaling box in addition to your notes. But, don’t limit yourself to White Daisy! Any solid card stock would work!

Make your own embellishments. All those scraps are perfect for stamping on, and then fussy cut to your hearts’ content! Use them to create embellishments to scatter around your project, use them to create punched borders, or pennants…the list goes on. In the layout above, you’ll see a star, bracket, flower, presents, and a pennant with a message stamped inside it. Those were all created from my scrap White Daisy papers.

Create the illusion your photos are matted. Rather than physically matting your photos on a large piece of patterned paper or card stock, trim it down and adhere it next to your photos. Your favourite papers’ life will be drastically lengthened this way! While it may add more to your scrap box (if the piece of paper you’re using is on the larger side), you’ll still have enough of that beloved paper to use on future projects instead of using it all up (or the majority of it) on one! I used this technique on the layout above. The City Sidewalks paper is adhered on either side of my photos on both pages. Think of them as the ‘book ends’ or brackets surrounding the photos.

Use your Cricut! Some of those scraps will be large enough to cut icons or titles from. If that’s how your paper originally became a scrap, use the space that’s still left for photo mats, journaling mats, borders, stamping and/or punching smaller items. You’ll likely have to trim off the pieces of paper that were cut, but you’ll be surprised to see how much paper is still left if you trim them down. Think outside the box. What can you do with the paper you have left after using your Cricut?

Alternatively, don’t be afraid to throw your smaller scraps through your Cricut, too. It is possible to use them, you’ll just have to make the items you’re cutting smaller. Sometimes, that takes a bit of trial and error, so maybe use a scrap of paper that you don’t care much about to get the sizing correct. Then, use your favourite paper to cut the final item! I cut my title using my Cricut. I used both White Daisy and Willow card stock to create the title.

Mat your photos with your scraps. Both patterned papers and card stock works to mat your photos. If you got really creative, you could also use scrap washi tape, shimmer tape, zip strips, stamps, or twine will work, as well!

All of the suggestions I listed above are ways that I use up my scrap paper stash. Most often, I stamp on my scraps and use them as photo mats and journaling spots on my layouts, but its not limited to just that. There’s no right or wrong, and the sky’s the limit. Get yourself outside the box, and do something different. Also, the suggestions I listed are probably just the tip of the iceberg. What are some ways you use up your scraps? I’d love to hear how you use them up!

CTMH ThankFul Heart Layout

Remember the post I shared a bit ago where I shared the sponging technique? I mentioned in that post that I’d created another layout using this particular technique, but I felt it was a bit over the top. Some time has passed, and I still feel the same. But, I’ll share it here and see how the inter-webs feels about it! Maybe you’ll like it better than I do!

I began this layout by sponging the background using Juniper, Pacifica and Flaxen inks. Then, I stamped over top of it in Peacock and Smokey Plum inks. I absolutely loved the way it looked, but I felt that the background was too plain. That’s where the ‘over the top’ comes in. I began by pulling colors directly from my picture, matting the photo with Flaxen and Peacock card stock. Then I matted the original sponged piece of card stock to another piece of Peacock card stock. I drew a larger box around that, and left it white. I drew two more boxes, slightly larger than the next, and sponged those. I should have left the largest box (on the outside of the page) white instead of filling it in, too. I feel like its too much sponge.

On the bright side, I absolutely love the inside box, with all the sponging and stamping, and how it showcases the photo. Its just beautiful. I stamped directly on the photo using Jet Black Staz On ink. The title was cut from Flaxen card stock using my Cricut, and I stamped and fussy cut a few more leaves and attached them to the upper right corner of the picture. One leaf was attached with foam dots for depth. (This is Pyramid Lake in Jasper, by the way). It makes me feel like we’re due back for another trip there one of these days. I love the mountains. Don’t you?

Just a question- how do you feel about sponge daubers with a larger, broader base? Or just sponges in particular? Do you find they blend ink more evenly, making it look less mottled? Its almost stained-glass reminiscent, isn’t it? I have never used anything other than the small sponge daubers, and I’m curious to know the difference between all the products out there. I did have a round sponge from CTMH at one time, but I think I’ve sold it. I no longer have it here, that I know of. Maybe I should attempt to answer my own question and try it myself. After I purchase another sponge or dauber. What is your favourite sponge/dauber product to use?

CTMH Make it Merry Double Page Layout

Its Christmas in July again! Or, still, because I am not sure I finished sharing Christmas themed layouts before we went on holidays. Think cool thoughts with me today- its going to be another scorcher! The kids and I are going to hibernate in the basement until we need to leave the house.

I’ve been hoarding my City Sidewalks patterned paper for a long time, so I was relieved that I got the opportunity to use it up with all the Christmas layouts I’ve been sharing with you. Just in time to prepare for this years’ Christmas season! I’ll be hoarding that paper until the next time I come around to scrapbooking Christmas pictures. I love being prepared!

This particular spread is of Christmas in…April. Whether my in-laws are able to visit at Christmas depends on the weather and the road conditions between our town and theirs. There is at least 600 kilometres, maybe more, separating us. Winter can be a nasty time of year. What might be nice for us sometimes isn’t as nice for them. Vice versa, too. So, we celebrated Christmas, Easter and my husbands’ birthday all in one here.

Do you find it interesting that most, if not all, the layouts you see created by CTMH consultants are double pages? What is your preferred style? Single layouts, double pages or a mixture of both? While I’m finding I really enjoy creating double page layouts, I mostly prefer single page ones. There’s only certain occasions throughout the year that will have a plethora of pictures to choose from. Since I like scrapbooking everyday activities as well as the special ones, I save the double page layouts for the occasions that have a ton of pictures. Those tend to be few and far between.

And, I’ve also started to wonder why double page layouts at CTMH are a thing. Why don’t they do more single page layouts? Its encouraging me to stick with my single page layouts- to help set me apart from the rest- and stay true to my personal style. I am toying with the idea of selling kits based on single page layouts. In addition, I’m also thinking of creating and selling card kits, as well. The entire kit, along with a cutting guide, will be available to purchase locally; the cutting guide will be available to everyone. Any orders outside the country and overseas would require that individual to make their own product purchase. Would there be any interest in this? Please let me know your thoughts! Because, not everyone enjoys creating double page layouts. Sometimes, there just aren’t enough pictures to create them; other times, there’s too many, and its impossible to decide which ones to scrapbook! (Luckily, there’s flip flaps…I’ll get into those another day). But, wouldn’t it be refreshing to have single page layouts mixed in with those double page layouts? I’m still learning and feeling my way around this idea, so nothing is set in stone yet. Please share your thoughts and feelings with me. I’d love to know people’s feelings on this!

I created the title and the mat that its layered over with my Cricut. The mat underneath was cut sometime in the past, I don’t know when. I pulled it out of my scrap box to play with. And, to create some depth, I stamped it with one of the snowflakes from the Shreddin’ The Slopes stamp set in Glacier ink. (If you look back through my blog posts, you’ll notice that Glacier is one of my go-to ink colors. I absolutely love it! Desert Sand is also another staple in my crafting).

CTMH Jack Layout

Is the sketch you’re using smaller than you prefer to work with? Is there a layout you want to scraplift, but it’s too big for what you’re comfortable with? 

Do situations like this scare you? They shouldn’t! Consider this an opportunity to stretch yourself creatively, and go for it!

I’m speaking from experience here, and I highly recommend you try it. Don’t let the size scare you- if it’s too large, scale it down and eliminate a few things; alternatively, smaller layouts afford you the chance to add more elements (if the desire strikes you). If not, you Layout may wind up looking like this:


Clean and simple- and it’s perfect just the way it is! If you go out on that proverbial limb, you may just surprise yourself! I adapted this layout from a smaller sketch. I believe it was an 8.5×11, but it works just as well on a 12×12 inch layout. All that white space is heavenly!

Quick Note

Hello friends. Just popping in quick to let you know I’m on vacation today! I’ll be away with my family until Sunday, but if you follow me on insta or my personal fb, I’ll keep you posted with pictures. 

See everyone again next week!

CTMH My Life Layout

I like finding different ways to use up my paper stash. I had this leftover sheet of Balloon Ride patterned paper that was cut in half diagonally, and when I found a sketch online that was similar, I ran with it.

I don’t think the sketch originally showed the page parted this way, but its how I interpreted it. I worked with what I had, and I quite like the outcome.

The filter I used to edit the picture (I don’t know what it is anymore) matched the creamy hues in the Balloon Ride paper, which is why I paired them together. There’s also hints of blue throughout the picture- both my daughters had on blue fleece coats and the merry go round they are riding on is blue.

I don’t know where ‘This’ took place or when, but I had to scrapbook it. A lot of the time, I choose pictures based on how they make me feel. In this particular picture, I absolutely love the goofy grin on my mom’s face. There was no question, it had to be scrapped. I’m fairly certain my sister was the photographer here, and they must have been out doing something with the twins while I was off having some alone time. Choosing my pictures this way helps me be more selective when I’m browsing through them and preparing them for printing. (I sift through all my photos and save the ones I want to print to a flash drive. I then bring them to Walmart and have them an hour later. I love it! I used to order through Apple, but I hated having to wait 10+ days for them to arrive on my doorstep. This works much better for me!)

How do you choose the pictures you scrapbook?

CTMH PML Layout

As it turns out, the layout I shared yesterday is a huge hit! Even though I’ve experienced a negative in my life by losing pictures due to a technical malfunction, its still a positive. Sometimes, its just all in the way you look at things. (Which, more often than not, is a major personal struggle for me). Its a good lesson to learn!

And, as it turns out, there will be more layouts heading your way in the future that don’t have pictures in them. I remembered that I kept a bunch of paraphernalia from our last trip to Las Vegas (which I happen to be scrapbooking right now), and I wanted to make some layouts using that. Since I don’t have pictures to coordinate with the paraphernalia I kept, I’m creating them without! (The first one is my boarding pass; the second one- and more importantly- is Burgr. That is all I’ll say right now).

Do you create very often with journaling cards? Are you a project lifer, or do you use the PL cards in different ways? I’m a mixture of both. I like doing the occasional Picture My Life layout (CTMH’s version of PL), but more often, I like using them in my traditional scrapbooking. The layout I’m sharing today is just that type of layout.

I used some journaling cards that I had left over out of the CTMH Charlotte paper packet. I trim the ones I don’t use down, and store them in a little container along with all my other PML and Project Life inspired cards. (I don’t own any official PL cards). I thought the Charlotte ones worked well for this layout of my daughters’ lovey. Both daughters have had their own lovey’s since they were babies. The ones they have currently they’ve had since they were probably about 3 years old. They’ve lasted the longest! (Meaning we haven’t lost them yet!)

I inked the edges of the white card stock to try and eat up some of the blatant white space, and then inked a piece of scrap Forever & Always patterned paper for some depth. I’m loving this color palette- so fresh and bright! A pop of black doesn’t hurt, either!

CTMH Picture-Less Layout

Happy Friday! Its overcast and dreary here this morning, but the weather network is telling me its going to be a warm and sunny day. I’m looking forward to it. If the weather warms up as much as they say it is, I’ll take the kids on a picnic tomorrow to the local splash pad and we can spend the afternoon there. Fingers crossed its nice enough!

I’m switching gears today. I have a layout to share, but its a picture less one. Its picture less because 2014 and 2015 on my computer go absolutely haywire. This was about the time that I began having problem with my computer (if you can remember way back to before I quit blogging for a time at the end of 2016/start of 2017). My desktop computer was having issues, and finally got resolved (I thought), and then I began having problems uploading my Android cell phone to my computer AND problems again with my desktop. It resulted in my desktop computer dying and a new one being bought. Apple transferred everything on the old computer to the new, but it didn’t translate. I’m missing all of 2014, and the little of it that I do have, somehow took place in 2015. And, I know they didn’t happen in 2015. This is the reason I’ve created a layout without pictures.

I know of one other event that I need to scrapbook that will be picture less- when my husband was diagnosed with a tumor on his pituitary, and the subsequent health diagnoses he’s had in the time since this initial diagnosis. The tumor is benign; hormone replacement therapy has been managing it quite well, so nothing else is needed for the time being. Now, rather than visiting his endocrinologist once every 6 months, we only need to see her yearly or every year and a half. Its great news! Now he just needs to get the rest of his health straightened out! (And, it can all be reversed if he just changed his lifestyle. It hasn’t happened yet…I’m hoping that’ll come).

So, back to the layout I want to share today. What have you done when you’ve run into a problem such as the one I’m dealing with? How did you overcome it? I’ve learned that I should refer frequently to my Instagram and Facebook pages, because they are better timeline references than my photos folder on my desktop computer. There’s way more pictures there- and there’s pictures there that I’d love to have printed but don’t! Argh! As a result, I’ve also learned that I should be printing pictures from Facebook at the moment rather than from my photos folder! Live and learn. So, my mindset now is to turn this negative into a positive, so I’m planning to make a mini album of the ‘missing years’ after I’ve scrapbooked the pictures I already printed from my photos folder.

Is your head spinning yet? Mine sure is. I’m pretty choked up that my memories are gone, but I’m thankful that there’s still a few left to scrapbook. All is not lost. Thank heavens there’s social media platforms like Facebook and Insta- if they didn’t exist, I’d have next to nothing to scrapbook!

I had Facebook in the back of my mind when I created this layout. I wanted to recreate an ‘unknown’ profile picture such as you’d see on Facebook if someone doesn’t have a profile picture uploaded to their personal page. I found a girl silhouette image on my cricut, and cut it out from Glacier card stock. I also cut a large question mark and layered it behind the girl silhouette. I chose the girl because 99% of my layouts are about my children. I only thought it fitting for this layout. I wasn’t sure people would realize that I had tried placing a question mark behind the silhouette, so I stamped a second smaller one onto the silhouette. (My daughter immediately clarified for me that people *would* understand what it was…she told me she liked it after I’d finished it. Phew!)

I filled in the two empty journaling mats with stamping and inked the edges with Sea Glass ink. I matted the journaling spot with Sweet Leaf card stock and layered it over some scrap Kraft and sponged White daisy card stock that were floating around on my desk. I sure love this technique! I think I’ll try to incorporate a lot of this technique into most of my layouts from now on. At least, until the novelty wears off. Ha!

I sponged part of my title too, so that it would stand out a bit better against the Kraft portion of paper that it covers. It was also cut from Kraft card stock, and it got kind of lost without the sponging. I just used a tone that was slightly darker than its original. I love the texture it adds!

I also paired all the stamping and CTMH products with a single sheet of patterned paper from Stampin’ Up. I like that the arrows kind of helps draw your eye down towards the centre of the page, or up from the bottom of the page. Mission accomplished!

I also have posted to my Facebook all the stamp sets I’d like to destash and part with. There’s nothing listed that’s more than $15 Canadian; I’ve also created some ‘bundles’ if you can call them that. One stamp set coordinates with a sheet of patterned paper I have, so I’ve listed them together. There’s also a set of three stamps that come together, so I’m selling them together, as well. View it here. I will share it in more detail here tomorrow…probably next week. Tomorrow is Saturday and I’m not sure I’ll make it here if my husband is home. I hope this will do until then! Some stamp sets have already sold as well (thank you to those that have purchased from me! I hope to see the rest of these go, as well!) If you live outside of Canada and you’re interested in broadening your acrylic stamp stash, give me a shout. Maybe we can work something out. Shipping charges will apply to both my Canadian friends and those abroad.
