Sneek Peek Part Four!

Well I am slowly devouring this new Close To My Heart Idea Book, page by page and it is deeeee-licious! I love all the changes - well really they truly are upgrades - to all the products, CTMH never ceases to amaze me!

For the next sneek peek, I've got my trip to Toronto on my mind . . . it is torturously hot there right now, and as one who is not so fond of the heat, I'll keep these next images in my mind to try and stay cool . . . check out "Wonderland":

I just love these colours together too! Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Grey Flannel and Twilight. Almost makes me wish for winter . . . I said ALMOST!

Happy Scrappin'!

Sneek Peek Part One!

Eeeee! The new Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book is AMAZING!!!! So many wonderful new products and papers my wish list is humungous (did I spell that right?!), I will have to sell my kids to get it all!!! Ok, so maybe I'll come up with a better money making idea :-) Besides, if I sell my kids then what will I have to photograph and scrapbook?!

Ok, so do you wanna sneek peak at what's comin'? I'll post a little bit each day until I leave for holidays and then on August 1st you can view it online to see it all - even better you can SHOP online 24/7!! And shipping rates are improving too - man it feels like Christmas already :-)

Here is your first sneek peek at the new Roxie line - absolutely perfect for that Divalicious Darling in your life, or the Diva in you! It has my DD written allllll over it for sure!

Hope you enjoyed your first sneek peek! See you tomorrow (or maybe tonight . . .) for some more!
Happy Scrappin'!

Close To My Heart teams up with Cricut!!!!

So Close To My Heart released their preview of the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book to the consultants at midnight last night, and OMG!!! What excitement! I have not been this excited about an Idea Book release in a long time. When I saw that Close To My Heart had paired up with Cricut for the Art Philosophy cartridge my jaw hit the floor!! I JUST got a Cricut last week as a gift from my grandmother, so the timing on this could not be more perfect in my life, whoo hoo! I will be starting up more clubs and workshops this September and cannot wait to share this new wonderful tool with all my friends and customers :-)
I tried to post the YouTube video here but apparently still not that tech savvy, so I'll tell you, if you search Close To My Heart Art Philoshopy Cricut you should find it, check it out for a small sampling of what's coming out on August 1st!!

Happy Scrappin'!

I am thrilled to be the sponsor of the prize giveaway for this week's sketch over at Let's Scrap! I have a box full of Close To My Heart goodies for one lucky scrapper who submits a layout based on this week's sketch. Do you want to participate? Head on over to Let's Scrap ( and sign up - you'll LOVE it!
Here is this week's sketch:

and this was my take on it - yes, I do realize I did a single layout, I know that does not happen often with me, I'm truly a double-double gal :-) but this is the back page to Jessica's 3rd album:

Since I never got around to posting last week's sketch I'll add it in here too, as well as my take, which was our family trip to Disney World in 2008 - almost done that album!

Well, it is rainy and yucky out here today, so this means it's a scrappy day! Going to work on some more Let's Scrap sketches and the Fancy Pants challenge :-)
Happy Scrappin'!

Family Memories Explosion Box

Last week on Let's Scrap the Design Team challenge was to make an Explosion Box rather than a traditional layout. Well at first I was going to skip out on this challenge, but then I decided I would give it a try after seeing all the wonderful creations being posted . . . and I'm so glad I did! This was so easy to make and has been a big hit with everyone I've shown it to so far. My DD wants me to make them for her next birthday party now!

Happy Scrappin'!

Digi, Digi, Do!

No idea why the silly title, just a silly mood I suppose! Check out my very first Digital layout . . .

I made this using Close To My Heart's Studio J and I must say, SUPER easy peasy! Though I will not ever convert to Digital - getting my hands dirty with ink and glitter is just too theraputic to stop! I will enjoy the occasional digi with this easy to use site :-)
Wanna try it?? Log on to and click on Studio J, make yourself an account and start playing! You only pay for what you want to buy :-)

Happy Scrappin'!
