Close To My Heart Magnifique Projects

Sharing some new artwork with you using the new Magnifique paper pack from Close To My Heart that will be available for you to purchase on September 1st. Be sure to contact me to get your own paper pack to create these fabulous projects! This card is one that we will make in an upcoming card workshop so if you really like it, be watching for more details about the workshop.
This beautiful work of art is actually a box. It is the My Creations Memory Keeper Box by Close To My Heart and makes a great gift for a loved one. I had fun decorating this box using the newest papers, stamp sets and embellishments that will be available to you on September 1st.
Here's a layout that I created also using the new Magnifique paper pack. I LOVE this layout! I got the idea for this layout from a CTMH publication only available to consultants and had to make one for myself. I didn't copy it exactly but used the same basic design.
Here's a layout I totally LOVE! The reason could be because of the photos of my beautiful daughter. Ya think? Anyway, this layout was created with the Magnifique (getting tired of this paper yet?) paper pack and the stickers that match. Now, I am NOT a huge fan of stickers (as most of you know) but....I really LOVE these as they were so perfect for the photos and really made the layout work! The design for this layout is one that's on the back of the sticker sheet.

I hope you have enjoyed all my Magnifique creations. Isn't it amazing what you can create with the beautiful papers from Close To My Heart? Contact me to purchase some for yourself!

Thanks for stopping in! Have an awesome day!

Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #72~Happy Together

This layout is actually last week's scrapbook challenge but I'm a bit late posting it.

('Magic' will be available starting September 1st and it is a MUST-HAVE book for any 'real' scrapbooker like myself and you, too!) Isn't this an awesome layout with those happy, giggly girls? It just makes me want to laugh, too, and give them lots of hugs! I miss them! : (

Some New Artwork to Share

Well, I guess it's about time I shared some new artwork with you! I have been holed up in my scraproom recently as the creative juices have been flowing freely and I like to take advantage of that!

I have been playing with some new paper packs from Close To My Heart that will be available soon for EVERYONE to play with. Mark your calendars for September 1st and give me a shout to reserve your copy of the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book.

The first project above is a corner bookmark. These are so much fun to make and work up so quickly. They make great little gifts so don't be surprised if one day I give you one! This one was made with the Magnifique paper pack coming soon to an Idea Book near you.

The next card is also made with the Magnifique paper pack and a new stamp set called, 'A Sip'. It is a 3x3 card and if I happen to run into you somewhere, I just may hand you one of these. I am passing them out to just about everyone I interact with as I run my errands each day so you never know if you might be one of the lucky recipients of one of my handmade cards.


The next 2 cards are also 3x3's that may find themselves in your hot little hands as well. They are made with the new Olivia paper pack from Close To My Heart. I just absolutely LOVE the new Olivia paper pack. The colors are definitely perfect for the Fall season that is fast-approaching...sigh...as much as I love the Fall, I hate to see Summer leave us! I have totally enjoyed this Summer! It's been a good one for the most part.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed my artwork for today. I have more to share and may get to it later or possibly tomorrow. If you would like to get your hands on any of the newest products you've seen today, please give me a shout! I'd love to show you the latest and greatest that Close To My Heart has to offer!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great weekend!

Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #71~Silly Girl

Here's my layout for this past week's scrapbook challenge. Can you guess who the silly little girl is? If you guessed my newest granddaughter, Scarlet, then you are correct! She sure is a silly girl and I love her already although I still have never met her. Someday!

Anyway, I was going through some older paper packs a few days ago, looking for something different to work with for this challenge and I found this oldie but goodie...Just Chillin'. It is no longer available but I still had plenty of the papers to use so this is what I created. I still have to complete the journaling yet. Although the journaling is very important on a scrapbook page, it is always the last part I do because I really have to think about what I want to say and don't want to mess it up!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you enjoy the layout and have a great day!

Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #69~Magnifique Water Show


I am once again trying to get caught up as I was out of town for a family reunion. Here is last week's scrapbook challenge and now I can work on this week's and try to finish it before Sunday's new challenge post.

The photos in the layout were taken while in Washington, DC at the CTMH convention. I could have watched those water fountains forever. It was so cool watching them shoot up and down to the beat of the music.

Although I love the new Magnifique paper pack, which is what I used on this layout, I still think the layout is missing something and I haven't put my finger on it yet. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

By the way, the reunion was a great success and I am so glad I was able to attend. I had not seen many of my relatives for more than 20 years! I never realized just how many relatives I had either and they all weren't even there! We rented a pavilion at Harris Hill outside of Elmira, NY and we were overflowing. Couldn't imagine what it would have been like if every single member of the Benjamin clan was able to make it! Unreal! I totally enjoyed seeing everyone! The food was especially enjoyable, too, and what a variety of yumminess there was! I wish I could have tasted everything!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the layout. If you want to know what supplies I used, please let me know because as of right now, I am too lazy to type them for you! LOL

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a good one!
