Another Month Gone By

Oh, my goodness. It is so hard for me to believe that another month has past. I hope everyone had a happy and healthy Memorial Day. This was a very creative month for me. So many special events to remember. I finally got to do my layouts with my two new favorite Close To My Heart paper packs: Animal Cookies and Tinkerin.

I also got to use the paper in my Tickled Pink kit to make 4 layouts as well as a couple of cards and some "thank you" bookmarks. So much fun and the kit was great. I still cannot believe all that came with it.

Next month will be an exciting start to summer. I look forward to creating with the Moon Doggie paper pack. My new favorite thing is hosting workshops. They are a win-win for all. Those who are just starting scrapbooking can come to a workshop where we use level 1 paper packs and I walk you through making a couple of layouts. This is great with showing our first timers how simple and awesome Close To My Heart products are. I also chose a special item that is original and an be used for yourself or as a gift. Things like the My Creations Cube and awesome accodian albums are examples of some.

These are the Days!

Here we are in the month of May. It is only the 11th day and I have celebrated two very special moments so far this month. The first being my middle daughter's First Communion and the second being Mother's Day.

What two great things to scrapbook and journal. Did you ever ask yourself "what should I get my mom this year?" Well, what mom doesn't like pictures and journaled memories of her children and/or grandchildren? I took the opportunity to make a great gift at my "Life's Delights" workshop. This great accordian album was the perfect "mom" gift. The best part was Close To My Heart's great price...only $12.95 for everything you need: accordian album, paper, cardstock, stickease, and embellishments. I can't forget the easy guide to follow to put it together. Best of all, mom loved it! It is something she will always cherish. Take a look at the Summer 2009 catalog to find other great ideas for gift giving. Nothing can be more personal than jotting down your thoughts and scrapping your favorite pictures for that special person in your life.

May is here!

Well, we are through with April, and with that, starting the exciting month of May. May is National Scrapbooking Month and also when we celebrate those special women in our lives, our moms. Now is the time to journal and scrapbook your mom's life. Take this time to document her life and share those pages with her or tell your mom's story and reflect on her in a creative and fun way. What a great way to keep them in our hearts always. It is a good time to put our creative senses to work.

I am excited about the "Tickled Pink" scrapbook kit available for purchase until May 31st for $34.95 or get it FREE with $60.00 in stamp set purchases. The kit includes what is needed for 2 two page layouts and includes stamp set and embellishments. I am finally through with my layouts and thrilled with how they came out. The paper is beautiful and brings out the cheeriness of Spring.

For anyone wanting for me to host a party for you, May is the month to do it. What a great "Stamp of the Month" not to mention the awesome hostess rewards! Ask me for what days I have available. This is the perfect time to get together with friends and share your love for the "Close To My Heart" products. I feel so fortunate to have my fellow scrapbookers and time to create together.

The time has come! You can now order from our amazing summer '09 catalog. Whether you are a big fan of "Animal Cookies" or you may really love "Tinkerin", either way, you can now purchase those items. Go to and shop online.
