Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #127~Holly Jolly

I wasn't too crazy about the new Believe paper pack from Close To My Heart until I made this layout for last week's scrapbook challenge. It is so cute! Don't you agree? The design for this layout, Hat Trick, comes from the Magic how-to book. I also used the Holiday Magic stamp set that is the Stamp of the Month for October. This set is just perfect for all your holiday cards and scrapbook pages but is only available until October 31st so give me a shout if you'd like to purchase one. Ask me how you can get it for just $5.00!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make it a good one!

A Cool Gift Card Pocket



This cool gift card pocket was inspired by a Close To My Heart sister by the name of Vicki Wizniuk. You can see her awesome artwork by clicking here. Vicki posted this recently on the bulletin boards for CTMH consultants and I absolutely loved it! I immediately had to try my own version and this is what I came up with. Isn't it just too cool?


It is, however, not a super quick project but was lots of fun to create. I made it with the Dreamin' paper pack from Close To My Heart and the Hooray Bouquet stamp set. The second photo shows the inside tag that holds the gift card.



And the third photo is where the gift card is stashed. Although I don't have one inserted, it would go on the top part where the cutout is. It's a pretty snug fit so it won't fall out. If you'd like to make one of these gift card pockets for yourself, click here for the instructions.

Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #126~Be Yourself

There's nothing better than 'being yourself'. After all, isn't that what makes each and every one of us uniquely special? I have always told my children to just 'be yourself'. You are who you are and no one can change that!

This week's challenge layout features photos of my lovely daughter who has just got to stop getting older and better because that means I am also getting older and I'd also like to think I'm getting better, too! Haha! Although I am very proud of the wonderfully beautiful woman she has become, I do long for those days when she was just a cute little blond-haired (yep, she used to be a blond) toddler running around, dressing up and totally entertaining me with her happy silliness! She was always happy and smiling every day that you couldn't help but feel happy, too! Oh, where did the time go?

I created this layout using the Studio J online scrapbooking program from Close To My Heart. The design used is Performance from the Magic how-to design book. If you haven't tried Studio J yet, click here to start playing. It's FREE to play. You only pay for the layouts you want printed out by Close To My Heart. You've already got all those photos on your computer, right? Well, what are you waiting for? Upload them to Studio J and get them scrapbooked before your computer crashes!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make it a good one!

Close To My Heart Scrapbook Challenge #125~2 Cute

Here's my layout for last week's scrapbook layout challenge. I used to always be on time with posting these weekly challenges but lately I don't know what my problem is. I can't seem to be on time for anything anymore. I guess I really need to get more organized and I know that's easier said than done. But I'll give it a try.

Anyway, here's a list of the supplies used for this layout which was created using the Salsa design from the Imagine how-to book from Close To My Heart.

All supplies are from CTMH unless otherwise noted.

  • G1017~Sweetheart WOTG Kit
  • B1370~Sweetheart stamp set
  • B1269~Journaling Jots stamp set
  • C1441~Affection stamp set
  • Z2193~Cotton Candy ink
  • Z2105~Black ink
  • Z1386~Sweetheart Level 2 Assortment
Unfortunately, the Sweetheart WOTG kit and stamp set along with the Level 2 Assortment pack are no longer available to purchase but if you already have these supplies, you could certainly duplicate my layout if you wish.

Thanks for stopping by today!
