Lucky Paper Pack (Great for Father's Day!!)

Hi Everyone!!

Last night I started making a layout and cards with a new paper pack called Lucky. It features the colors Desert Sand, Olive, Outdoor Denim, and Sunset. It's very masculine and will be great for Father's Day! Here are some pictures of the things I made. I made three cards and a layout. I will be making another layout with this paper pack also. I'm going to put some camping pictures on this layout once I get them printed.

Here are the three cards I made with this paper pack also. I love the wooden buttons and the hemp. It really makes the cards stand out!!



Finally these two pictures are of SOME of the things I received in my new consultant kit. I think I received eight stamp sets, 5 inks, 3 acrylic blocks, a stamp cleaner, two gorgeous albums (look to the right, you'll see one of them!), and much, much more. If you're thinking about becoming a consultant, I’d love to help you get started. The kit is half off right now!! It’s very easy to get started and CTMH gives you all the tools you need!

I hope you have enjoyed the pictures! I'd really like to have a workshop either June 3rd or June 5th from 7 to whenever we finish. I want to get it in before Father's Day so you can have a card for your father AND husband!

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to show you some pictures of the things I made yesterday with Cheryl. They are very cute and I cannot wait to give out the cards!

 I did not finish this card above. Cheryl had stamped her bookmark with a girl who was jump roping. Since i don't know any children and I dont have any teachers in my life, I left it blank so I could add something to it when I needed a card.
This is a bookmark that is detachable from the card.

This below is the layout I completed at the class.

Sorry I did not face the pictures the right way, but you get the idea. The class was very fun! Thanks again Cheryl!

Good night everyone!

She had wonderful projects and I really enjoyed completing them. I will post pictures tomorrow of these things too.
Well I hope everyone is having a wonderful night. I’m very happy that the world did not end!!
Good night!

If there's one thing I’ve figured out while attempting to make a semi-decent blog is that I am NOT a coder. Meaning, I completely don’t understand code, html/css, whatever.

With that said, here is my first post on my new blog!

This will be a blog where I will upload videos (Hint, Hint.. my birthday is coming up.. and I need a video camera!!) or upload pictures, as of now, to show you how to make cute cards and inspiring layouts.

On to the next thing, I am a Close to my Heart Consultant. It is an online scrapbooking company that has revolutionized the scrapbooking world and finally made scrapbooking "faster, easier, and simpler!" They sell paper packs that coordinate with stamps, ink, and accessories. Feel free to check out their idea book, http://www.ctmh.com/en/Products/Online_Idea_Book.aspx. They offer great deals every month including monthly stamps that you could earn free with a purchase.

I will be starting monthly classes in June or July. My plan is to also make these kits available for everyone (even if you don’t live in Austin, Texas). I will pre-stamp your papers so there is no need for you to buy the inks and stamps (but I'm sure you'll want to!). If you are interested in this, please let me know. The kits will range from $10 to $30 depending on the number of layouts you could make in the kit.

Thank you for visiting my new blog!
