Stamp of the Month

S1911 Family Time is a set of 18 stamps that can be used for any project where you are celebrating the things you are blessed with. When you open your heart and focus on looking for the good in your life, you may surprise yourself in what you find around you, just waiting to be noticed. Could be that autumn leaf with amazing color or a smile from a friend or child.

Paper Collection of the Month

Whew! That’s a lot of goodness to be thankful for in November. I love that we are celebrating our fur babies this month. =)

Last Call Check Out The Swap

Goodness, I didn’t this set this to go live. Still want to share this awesome swap from the last card swap.

This is the last call for getting stamps from the Sept/Oct 2019 Catalog! I’m posting up the swap to share some amazing cards made by a variety of different ladies playing in a card swap. This set of cards give you a chance to really look at all the different sets.

Aren’t these ladies amazing and talented? Just love their work. Some things may still be live today. Hope these cards inspire you to create away!!

Autumn Air

I’m so glad that Fall is here and CTMH is celebrating Fall with this beautiful set, S1910 Autumn Air! I have these three great cards to show off this set:

Each month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set—valued at $18.95—for just $5. Qualify for this special pricing by placing an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products. This month’s set is only available October 1–31.

Enjoy the wonderful, cooler weather right now. Hawthorn and Autumn Air certainly capture the colors and sentiments of the season.

More Reasons to Smile

I’ve been working on getting these layouts done using two layout kits from “Reasons To Smile”. I’m inspired by a few different consultants putting my own twist on this. I plan to use this album for my “Gratitude” Journal for the next year. I’m participating in a challenge to document 3 things each day you are grateful for. I’ll share as I work on this throughout the year.

To do what I’m doing, you’ll need two of these layout kits:

Here are the first 6 layouts. The weather didn’t cooperate yesterday for me to take pictures of the other 7 layouts. I’ll add them when it dries out enough to take pictures.

I have created a private group. When you purchase 2 of these kits from me this month (they are gone after October 31, 2019), you will get an invite to this group and a special “mat pack” from me free (in addition to your Happy Mail). The Mat Pack will have the extra mats you’ll need to create the layouts as I have done. I like my photos matted and thought my customers would appreciate having this option as well. =) More reasons to get your kits to create these happy layouts!

There is so much fun this month with the Holiday Cheer kit, SpookTacular, and the Holiday Expressions going live on the 15th, that getting this stamp set for $5.00 is easy. You’ll want the KOTM for yourself or for a quick gift for a friend.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a creative day!

Reason to Smile

Everyone needs a reason to smile and this kit gives you this. It’s “happy colors”, easy to do, and provides some additional versatility that I hadn’t planned on. So much so, that I’m going to drop doing the calendar, get two of the basic kits, and do a year long album focused on gratitude. This is the basic kit.

Doing this as a scrapbook album is not my idea. The method I’m going to use, is inspired by Sue Brent. I’ll change things up to suit my needs but I’m keeping her basic idea of “not reinventing the wheel”. I’ve created a FB group to do videos of how I’m doing this live as I create the layouts. =) Get your kit – one or two and join me! Here is my first layout:

Isn’t that just fun! And beautiful. And I think on the live, it took me less than 25 minutes to create both.

You’ll need to have some extra cardstock for each layout for the photo mats but that’s it! =) I like to mat my pictures and use flip flops on the pages so I’ll be setting my 2nd layout up to accommodate that. I’ll also be planning some space to write down something I’m grateful for each day of the month. You can see what I did above. I’ll swap out one of the spots to be a bullet journal for this.

Here’s a show of all the layouts/products:

The options this kit presents are amazing. I can’t wait to finish it and use it as part of the tracking with a course I’m taking. What a fun way to do school work! Lots of reasons to smile here.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ve been inspired!

The leaves are done with the “Rock and Roll” technique where you use a lighter ink color and then roll the edges of the stamp in a darker color. Use several shimmer brushes to create the splattered look.
