Good morning, all....been spending time on another layout using Laughing Lola from the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book from Close To My Heart.  With a little help from my Cricut Artbooking cartridge exclusive to CTMH, I was able to complete this 2 page layout.  I will be adding this to my "Back-to-School" collection.

The overlays for this Layout were made by cutting one overlay in half :)....added some of the coordinating Dimensional Elements and some embellishments from the Lola Assortment.....there you have it!

Back-To-School With Laughing Lola

Hello, all!  So I have been spending my summer time wisely so far.  I have been inspired on so many notes and faced with some tough decisions that call for some major changes in my life right now.  I have been able to focus on doing things I truly enjoy and feeling a true sense of fulfillment and self reward……all while spending quality time with my family and just enjoying life-cherishing every second of the experiences we have together.  After all, that is what life is all about, right?

So with that said, I am dedicating more time to preserving those precious memories by scrapbooking each day, even if it means just cutting and preparing the papers I need and want for my layouts.  Labeling all as I go allows for me an easy assembly.  I am absolutely thrilled that at my last class I heard one of my scrappers announce that she was ready to get back to the craft she loved to do and that was very important to her as she is creating keepsakes for her children.  LOVE IT!!!!

I wanted to share with you all how I used the new “Laughing Lola” paper pack from Close To My Heart’s Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book.  Before you know it, the kids will be returning to school, so I went ahead and started getting my pages ready for Back-To-School.  This paper is AWESOME for all three of my angels as 2 are middle schoolers and 1 is heading into her final year of elementary school (ugh, I am getting old).  Anyway, thanks to my Cricut E2 and the Artbooking cartridge exclusive to Close To My Heart (available to all customers August 1!!!!!) I was able to make this pretty but easy layout!

Close To My Heart Summer 2013 111

What is awesome about this cartridge is not only does it offer 15 themed layouts, but it also allows you to make all your cuts for your 12x12 layouts proportionate to your page.  No more guess work!

Stay tuned as we will be creating cards using the “Laughing Lola” Card Workshop On the Go in August!  We will create 5 each of 3 designs…here they are:

Happy crafting!

Rediscover Close To My Heart

Hello, all, and happy July!  Whoosh!!!!  What just happened?!  The past week has been nothing but an amazing whirlwind!  I just got back from the "happiest place on earth", Disney World (Orlando) where I got to attend the Close To My Heart annual convention at the Coronado Springs Resort.  If that isn't enough excitement, I was blessed in that I can extend my visit and have my family with me so we can all enjoy Disney together.  What a great way to kick off the summer!  I have so much to share with you all so I will just jump right in.

First, the new Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book was unveiled and boy is it loaded with great stuff!  I think you will all be pleasantly surprised.  My customers can start ordering from this Idea Book August 1st HOWEVER, if you just have to have what's in the book, like yesterday, you can get it a month in advance by joining my team today.  And if that's still not enough, you can get the product at consultant discount!  Yep!!!!  That's + earlier than everyone else = AWESOME!  If you are interested in joining my team just go here and see what you get.  OR visit the "Join My Team" page.  Here is the new Idea Book
So what is in the Idea Book you ask?  OMGosh!  So many new and fun things including 6 new paper packs, new stamp sets, new textiles and kits that allow you to extend your creativity into creating jewelry and accessories, new home decor products, our new CRUSH book (if you love to SMASH you will love to CRUSH!), and so much more!   OOPS!  I forgot to mention that Close To My Heart also unveiled there NEW......wait for it....Cricut cartridge!  The new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge is absolutely amazing and will open so many new avenues for your scrapbooking. 

More about what this cartridge can do for you coming soon!  But for now it has 700 images including 10 mini books, fonts, layouts, etc.  This is a must have for all my scrappers!  The bundle is $99 and comes with the cartridge, three coordinating stamp sets, and three sheets of coordinating dimensional elements.  Artbooking will be available to my customers starting August 1st, but again, join my team today and you can get your cartridge early plus at a discount!

So that is a very small taste of what is to come.  I will post daily giving you more info as there is just way to much to share in just one post.  In the mean time, take a look at this month's classes and maybe consider hosting a workshop/class of your own as you can earn FREE stuff plus get a project completed.  Let me show you how!
