National Scrapbooking Month ~ Blue Skies Specials

May is officially National Scrapbooking Month!  Close To My Heart has been celebrating with several free, live digital events AND a new exclusive patterned paper collection and suite of coordinating products. This bright, cheery Blue Skies collection is one of the best collections I have seen.  I can’t wait to share everything with you!! 

Before I share all of the Blue Skies collection,  I wanted to let you know that you can still view all seven instructional segments from the National Scrapbooking Day Celebration.   You can view them under videos on the Close To My Heart Facebook page and each one of the kits shown can still be purchased on my website. 


Are you ready to see all of the Blue Skies Collection?

Like I said, this is one of my favorite collections to date.  It starts with a breathtaking Paper Pack, Sticker Sheet, and UV Coated Cardstock. 

The incredible Blue Skies paper packet features 12 double-sided paper sheets, two each of six double-sided designs with the option to purchase it with or without the Sticker Sheet. That sticker sheet is definitely something you are going to WANT.   It coordinates perfectly with the papers and has glossy UV-coated designs just like the Blue Skies cardstock. 

This cardstock is exclusive to the collection and has a raised pattern design.  I have had so much fun playing with this stuff!  To add to the collection, there are also TWO coordinating stamp sets and a Pinwheel Thin Cut die. (LOVE THIS!)


But it doesn’t stop there my friends…

Close to My Heart is Celebrating BIG this year! For those who love all things paper craft, Close to My Heart has created FOUR kits just for you.

A New Year Full of Inspiration

With a new year, comes change. I know that many of you are currently surrounded by a mountain of paper, gifts, and leftovers, and cannot even begin to think about the new year, but, for me, it’s be a month of prayer, planning, and wrestling with the brain monsters as I have struggled over what would be best for you and me in the upcoming months.

I have made the decision to go back to doing what I love, which means that there will be some changes made to my list of classes. My goal for the new year is to be true to myself, inspire, and teach, and with those goals in mind, I am excited to share with you what I have planned in the coming months.

 

Coming Spring 2020

I have made the decision to discontinue my Kit of the Month, Workshop Guides, & Local Scrapbook Classes. Thank you to all of you who have supported me this past year and have purchased my kits, guides, and have signed up for workshops.  I have NOT forgotten you and I KNOW Memory Keeping and photo journaling is important to all of us, so I have decided to OFFER YOU SOMETHING EVEN BETTER!!
