Zoe Blog Hop

Welcome to the Zoe Blog Hop where we will be featuring some delightful projects created with our Zoe Paper Collection. 57451166_10156402517817686_3140454059333386240_nIf you have come here from Melinda Everitt’s blog, you are on the right path!  When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next site. This blog hop is simple, fun, and full of ideas from some very talented Close to My Heart consultants. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

The Zoe paper pack was one of my favorites the first time around and, I am once again, sad to see it go at the end of April.  This adorable set of papers and stickers is full of happiness and sunshine. When I saw the little “Camera” in the sticker packet, I knew that I needed to use it to create a layout with some fun photos of my kiddos that were found on my phone years ago.


How many of you have photos just like this?? Our kids snag our phones, play with the filters, make silly faces, and we end of finding them later.  I know that many of you post them to social media or upload them online, but have you ever considered printing them to record your thoughts and memories?

This is exactly what I chose to do. I wanted to record the memories of when I found the photos, record the relationship between these two goofballs, and record the fun many kids of their age have with cellphones. The stickers in the Zoe Paper Packet and  So Much Happy Complements were perfect for adding some of those thoughts to the page.


I not only used stickers to add to my journaling, but I chose to add some fun statements to a Filmstrip Border I created using our Artistry collection. As a special gift, to you for stopping by my blog, you can have a copy of this Design Space™ file to create your own Filmstrip border.


We often think of these photos as an everyday occurrence, but there will be a day that your kiddos no longer “sneak” silly photos for you to find. There will be a day when that silliness is gone and their relationship matures, and they are no longer big goofballs with their mom’s cell phone.

This is why we record our memories.

Now ‘Hop” on over to Gina Brandstetter’s blog to see her artwork! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas. Remember, the Zoe Collection is only available while supplies last through April 30th. Contact your CTMH Consultant, or visit my website to order this delightful set before it’s gone.

Seasonal Magnolia Frame with a Design Space™ File

It’s National Papercrafting Month, and our Magnolia Frame-It-Up Kits are perfect for creating a year round home decor piece that is unique to your home.  As many of you know, I decorate my home for each season, so, when I saw this kit, I knew that I needed to get out my Cricut™ create something that could be used all year long.


How cute are these? My original intention was to only create four holiday icons, but I had so much fun playing with my Cricut™ that I ended up making a full year’s worth. (I guess a month away makes this Cricut™ addict want to play.)  Each image attaches to the background using some hook & loop dots and is stored in a 12″ x 12″ Paper & Stamp Envelope that is attached to the back of the frame.


My Seasonal icons were created using images from our exclusive Close to My Heart Cricut™ collections.  The color palette was chosen to match my home, but when you download the file, you have the ability to change each one to match your personal home decor.


I am sure you are wondering how you can get a hold of the Design Space™ file to recreate this Seasonal Magnolia Frame-Up kit.  All you have to do is make a purchase of $50 or more on my website or Joins My Team during the month of January.  As a special Thank You, I will send you the Design Space™ File with all twelve icons along with a supply list.


Some of you many not have a need for all twelve. By making a purchase of $30 or more, you can choose any SIX icons that you would like for your Magnolia Frame and I’ll send those to you in a Design Space™ file.  This is my way of saying Thank You for supporting my small business.

Don’t forget that the Magnolia Frame-Up Kit is only available while supplies last through January 31st.  Anyone who purchases this kit from my website will receive a link to my live class.  How fun is that!?

I can’t wait to see what you create!
