Don’t Forget to Take Advantage of these January Specials

For me, the month of January just flew by. I am not sure if it was due to the fact that I had two weeks off from work or that time just seems to go by quicker now that I am older. Either way, if you are like me, you may have forgotten about some of the Exclusive Specials during the month of January. 

For National Paper Crafting Month, Close to My Heart designed a beautiful Wooden Wreath Kit for you to create. Each All Around Creativity wreath measures sixteen inches, includes laser cut flowers, leaves, and a bow, and is super easy to assemble.  You can choose from five different sentiments to match your home decor or the occasion you are celebrating. 

Each kit also includes FOUR different paper patterns to choose from to create your background. As a special added bonus, I am offering a FREE ONLINE CLASS to anyone who purchases one of the these All Around Creativity wreath kits. In this class, I will show you some tips and tricks for creating the wreath, how to color your wreath and flowers, and show you how I added some simple touches to personalize it for your home or special occasion.

Here’s peek of a project from one process videos I created for the online class.


January is also the final month for our Urban collection.  This popular collection was brought back for those of us who enjoy that distressed, metropolitan, steampunk look in our paper crafts.  

This collection of papers and stickers along with the workshop kit and stamp set will no longer be available after January 31st.  I have been able to make some fun creations using the Urban collection and I plan to make even more in the future. 

I hope that you have enjoyed this month’s creations and that you are looking forward to what is to come. During the month of February you can still purchase the two Valentine Specials (Oh My Heart paper pack & the Be Mine Banner) and you will have the chance to save 50% on one of our most popular products. Can you guess what it is?

You will have to wait until the first of February to find out. Make sure you are receiving my Newsletter and are following Miss. Carrie’s Creations on both Facebook & Instagram to find out what we have to offer you in February.

Magnolia Frame-It-Up Seasonal Wreath

Call me crazy, but I take pleasure in a piece of Home Decor that I can change each season.  Maybe it’s the creator in me or the indecisive hormones, nonetheless, having the ability to change my home decor intermittently is something I enjoy.  This week, I decided to create a simple wreath that I can change throughout the year using the components from the Magnolia Frame-It-Up kit.  This simple project is something you can easily recreate for your home.

My wreath base was cut at 11″ in diameter and  1½ wide from a piece of Foam Board, then wrapped it with Cotton Twine. By creating it from Foam Board, the wreath can be hung on a hook flush with the frame. After assembling the base, I began working on the leaves and flowers.  Since Magnolia leaves are naturally glossy, I used a foam brush to paint the front and back of each of the paper leaves in the kit with Gloss Mod Podge.  If you are not a fan of Mod Podge, you can use our Liquid Glass to achieve the same effect.(I happened to be out when I made this.) 

The Magnolia Flowers in the kit have a grey center, but since my home has Americana decor, and I wanted to bring some red into my flowers. As I contemplated what shade of red to use, I thought,”Why not add glitter?”, (you can never have enough glitter) so I grabbed my Red Shimmer Brush and brushed the center of each flower.

The gold center of each flower is beautifully designed, but I felt like it could use “a little more” so I added some Gold Pearls. This product is currently retired, but you could either paint our White Pearls with a Gold Marker, or use some of our Gold Gems instead. (If you would like instructions for creating ‘realistic’ flowers, sign-up for my online Frame-it-up class on Facebook.)

Assembling the wreath was very simple. The leaves were glued directly to the Cotton Twine around the wreath base and the flowers were attached using Foam Dots. I punched out a few of the “Gold Twigs” from the kit and glued them randomly around the flowers and hung the wreath onto the frame.

This was a very simple project and one that I can’t wait to display in my home. My plan is to show you the additional wreaths as I build them through the year. If you choose to create this Magnolia Frame-It-Up Wreath, make sure to sign-up for my newsletter so that you can see the other wreaths. I can’t wait to see what you create!
