November Kit of the Month

Are you ready for the Holly & Jolly season? 🎄 My November scrapbook kit and workshop guide will put you a step ahead this season with a layout worthy of your holiday memories.MissCarriesCreations-NovKOTMLayoutSM

As the holidays approach and your to-do list gets longer, you can check off one thing when you purchase this pre-cut, ready-to-assemble kit. I have designed this kit to allow you to add more photos, if needed, and I have provided plenty of room for journalling.  After all, telling the story is just as important as the photos you display.

Did you know that my team members can receive my guides FREE each month? Comment below to learn how you can get each of my monthly guides sent to you at no charge.

If you wish to cut-out your own layout, you can purchase the “personal workshop guide”. Each guide contains a supply list, detailed photos, cutting guide, layout diagrams, a Design Space™ file, and instructions. If you are consultant wanting to use the guide for a workshop, please purchase the “consultant guide”. MissCarriesCreations-NovKOTM-ChristmasDayLayoutSM

I can’t wait to share more layouts that I have created using the Holly Jolly papers. These bright, traditional Christmas colors create some whimsical photo pages.  Since I will not be hosting any workshops in November or December, my upcoming kits will only be available online.  Please make sure to sign-up for my newsletter so that you know when they are available.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

Feeling So Blessed

Today, I am celebrating five years as a consultant with Close to my Heart, and “blessed” doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel. As I celebrate today’s milestone, I want to bless each of you. I will posting a few personal specials in my VIP group this weekend as my way of saying “thank you” for blessing me these past five years.


Not only have I been blessed by a wonderful company, but I have been blessed by each of you. Through my up’s and downs, crazy creations, and sarcastic humor, each of you continue to follow my weekly adventures, and I am grateful for that. MissCarriesCreations-SoBlessedCardDetail.jpg

I am grateful for a group of people who enjoy creating as much as I do. Grateful for those you don’t look at me oddly or give me that “your weird” look I often received on the playground as a kid. This business is truly a blessing to me and my family, and I thank God each day for leading me to Close to My Heart, each of you, and a group of creative friends.


Like I said earlier, I want to bless each of you as we celebrate my years with Close to My Heart.  I will be posting a few personal specials in my VIP Group this weekend, so make sure to “Join” the group and see what you could win, save, or share with your friends.

I would also like you to consider joining me as a consultant.  This company is different than any you have ever been a part of, full of wonderful creative people, and you would be a wonderful additional to our team.

As always, I can’t wait to see what you create!


Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You

Can you believe that we only have only ten more days before April arrives?!!? Do you know that that means? You just have a little over four weeks to order from the Seasonal Expressions One catalog AND many of our amazing products are already low in quantity. Each of your favorite paper collections are well loved this season and, with our awesome March BOGO sale, many of these paper collections are going to start to disappear off the shelves.

♥ Something Fierce

Can someone say ADO-RRRR-able? The Something Fierce collection is full of child-like patterns that you can use to create some wonderful projects.  You can check-out a few of mine HERE. As you will see, this paper is versatile enough for all ages and genders.


♥ I Heart Us

Rainbows, flowers, butterflies..all of life’s joys. That is what the I Heart Us Collection Celebrates. I personally love the Mini-Album that you can make to display all of your “heartfelt” memories. You can Download the Free Guide HERE.


♥ So Much Happy

Bright, bold, and full of fun! The So Much Happy paper pack defiantly makes you happy and ready for the season of spring. I found that this paper pairs so well with our Flower Market Cricut™ collection and I have created some delightful projects with both.


♥ Feels Like Home

Beautiful farmhouse feel with a softness of watercolors. The Feels Like Home collection makes you feel at home and has been one of my favorite collections so far. I plan on creating an entire wedding album from this collection.


♥ Mix-Ins Paper

Designed to match every paper in our current collection, our Mix-Ins Paper Pack has an array of patterns and colors for you to choose from.   This month, you can get this paper packet for free when you Join My Team as a Close to My Heart consultant.


I am saddened by the parting of another line of products, but excited to see what Close to My Heart has planned for May.  As a consultant, I get a sneak peek of EVERYTHING on April 1st. ♥♥♥♥ I can’t wait!♥♥♥♥  

Speaking of waitingdon’t wait too long to take advantage of the BOGO Sale and snag these papers before they are gone. I am sure you have a stack of photos or a list of cards calling your name. Take a few minutes to scroll back through each of these papers and see which ones will fit your to-do list. There are so many to choose from.
