Convention Highlights

It had been almost a month since the North American Convention and my brain is finally beginning  to wrap itself around all the new products, the artwork, and the amazing people I met.  Some of you even took the time to come introduce yourself as one of my “followers”.  (You would not believe how honored I felt.)  I feel especially blessed to have met these five amazingly talented ladies who presented at the Extravaganza with me.

Each one of us was blessed with the opportunity to use the new upcoming Holiday Expressions products to create some stunning artwork.  Each one has a unique style, awesome talent, and presented some great ideas for using each of the new papers. I would love if you took the time to check out their blogs. They are each uniquely talented and full of great inspiration.

And who made this all happen? The delightful Jill Broadbent, who is extremely talented in her own right. I can’t imagine all the work that went into making this happen, and I speak for all five of us when I say that we are beyond grateful at the opportunity we had to present at this year’s Convention.

Convention Bound

I am  excited, nervous, and all aflutter to be headed to the North American Close to My Heart Convention.  As an Extravaganza Creative Presenter, I have already had a chance to view some of the stunning products that will be arriving in the fall, and I can’t wait to see what else Close to My Heart has to offer you.


I am always fascinated how their Design Team is in sync with the current trends and fashions.  Each season is full of incredible paper crafting products that reflect the current styles.  I can’t wait to be able to show you what the future holds for Close to My Heart!

If you are as excited as I am about these products, you should consider joining my team as a Close to My Heart Consultant. The HeARTfully Blessed Creations Team is supportive, creative, and small.  I have enjoyed getting to know each of the women on my team and would love for you to join us.

Continue to watch my blog, Facebook page, and Instagram for updates on the upcoming products.  I will be posting little teasers over the next few months, and some of the artwork I created for the Convention.  I can’t wait to see what you create!


Top Secret Packages

I would love to say that this week I have an phenomenal Tuesday Tutorial for you, but I do not.  Don’t panic, my paper crafting, Cricut® addicts.  I will have more in the future. While you wait, I encourage you to spend this week looking up some of the past Tuesday Tutorials that you may have missed. So, why no tutorial?? Well, a few weeks back I received this “Top Secret” package in the mail full of unseen, soon to be released, amazingly wonderful Close to My Heart products.


Along with these paper lovelies came a prior email requesting that I accept the assignment to be a Creative Presenter at the upcoming Close to My Heart Convention. First response…this has to be a spam email.  Have you seen my out-of-the-box oddities made of paper?  Well, I guess they had and decided to choose my “weirdness” to be represented in front of a boat-load of amazingly talented ladies across the world. (insert panic attack here.)

So here I am sitting in my partly finished, newly designed, crafty space, full of stickiness and ink reveling in all that is to come.   Who knew that an oddity like me who is full of “weirdness” and a passion for paper would be chosen? Lesson of the day: if like this can happen to me, well it surely can happen to someone like you, my paper crafting, Cricut® addict.  I would love to see your name on the list of next year’s Creative Presenters.

As a Close to My Heart Consultant, you have an amazing opportunity to share your love of paper (and your weirdness) with others as well as earn a discount on supplies, free products, and the chance to show off your love of paper and all you can create. PLUS during the month of June, you will receive your choice of Create the Rainbow cardstock bundle for FREE!


Hey, if I can be chosen, so can you.  I would love to see you at the 2019 Close to My Heart Convention sitting next to me and the HeARTfully Blessed Creation team members.  God has truly blessed me with the opportunity to work in a business I love, and He has blessed me even more with some amazingly talented team members.  I would love for you to be a part of this team and share in our love of paper crafting. I can’t wait to see what you create!
