Halloween mini-album

Here's a quick little mini made with the Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge, "Artbooking".  What an awesome cartridge with tons of options! If you'd like to see more, you can go to my website to check it out and to order: .   These are just a few of the pages and the entire mini is made with cuts from the cartridge - oops - except the white circle on the front happens to be from Martha and has a wiggle piece to make the bats have motion!

December Daily for 2013!

I just returned from a weekend crop and am happy to say, I had a great time and made 3 solid projects!  The first, my December Daily, is a big switch from last year's 'Daily because this one is considerably smaller and dedicates a page per day.  Below are a few of my favorite pages, though I expect as I use it in December, each page will become a favorite!

Make-It-Take-It Card

Notice the cool corrugated cardstock on this! It came in a 6X6, DCWV pad with a variety of colors and you'll notice that it is thin enough to mail ! Bonus!!!

Two sassy cards!

I created these two cards from the "Laughing Lola" set from Close To My Heart !  It is really a fun set because you get matching papers, embellishments and a matching stamp set to make scrapbooking pages, cards or other projects! and the paisley and colors make everything look sassy!!
You can order this set, parts of the set and much more from the CTMH idea book on my website:

Click here to go to my "Close To My Heart" web page!


My hopes for:
a great time with friends,
sharing with them some of the papercrafts I've made,
introducing my new career as a Close To My Heart resource and
getting ideas for future workshops... all things came true yesterday at my open house. 

Here's the set-up, but I had so much fun chatting and eating and laughing and doing a little show and tell, along with the Make-and-take, that I didn't take pictures during the party! :-/
                "Close To My Heart" table!

                    Make-it-Take it         
The afternoon reaped some great ideas for future workshops so be sure to check back often for dates and times~ and thanks so much to those who came over yesterday and helped my launch to new good times!!
