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…

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

A Layout For All Your Summer Memories

If you are like me, summer is full of activities and, when it all comes to an end, you realize that you have a bunch of random photos sitting in your phone gallery.  My August Kit of the Month, has been created just for you and your mess of randomness. It’s time to get those photos off your phone and record all those summer memories.MissCarriesCreations-AugKOTMSliceofSummerLayout-SM.jpg

I have titled this month’s kit “A Slice of Summer”.  As a Kit of the Month Club subscriber, you will be receiving this kit in the mail in August. If you live locally,  you can save on shipping by arranging to pick-up these kits at one of my local workshops or crops.

I used the Craft On papers , on this layout, along with various images from our Cricut™ collections. I included plenty of spaces for photos and a journal card that you can use to tell your summer stories.

(NOTE: If you are a consultant, you can use the Craft On papers on this layout. Members of my team receive a 25% discount on all kits and guides.)

I designed this layout to allow you to display NINE photos. You can add more using our Flip-Flaps or by exchanging the larger photos for smaller ones.  If you are not a member of my Kit of the Month Club, you can visit my online store to purchase my kits at full price. (Subscribers receive a discount on each kit.)

Order this Kit or Cutting Guide

Individual cutting guides will be available for purchase to those who wish to use their own supplies to create this layout.  If you are a consultant who plans on using this for a workshop and would like to make multiple copies of the guide, you can purchase the Consultant Guide. (You can make unlimited copies, but you are not allowed to sell or post the guide or share the Cricut file.) You will need to own the Cricut™ Collections I used to cut out the images in Design Space™. Please make sure to choose “Electronic Shipping” when purchasing cutting guides.

PLEASE NOTE: GUIDES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL FRIDAY AUGUST 2ND

 I can’t wait to see what you create!
