It’s So Sad to Say Good-bye

Spring is coming, plants are budding, and our Seasonal Expressions is retiring. I am eager for a new season, new catalog, and new products, BUT before we get too excited, I wanted to remind you of a few important things you might want to snag (like free project guides) before they disappear at the end of April.


As the end of April nears, most of these items will start to disappear off the shelves.  If you have had any of these on your wish list, make sure to you order sooner then later.

♥ Paper Packs, Complements, & Coordinating Pocket Cards

I have enjoyed the patterns from all FIVE papers packs this season. The boyish prints in Something Fierce – the vivid colors of I Heart Us – and even the country prints in So Much Happy. My utmost favorite was the Feels Like Home collection.  The farmhouse images, the soft prints, and the french country patterns made my heart sing.

Not only do we have gorgeous papers, we also get matching Stickers, Die Cuts, and Pocket Cards. Each of these complements our papers so well and can be used on just about any project.

Scrapbooking & Card Making Kits

How many of you love kits? I know that when my creative brain needs a rest, kits are my best friend. This season, Close to My Heart “wowed” us with not only Basic Scrapbooking kits, but Deluxe Kits as well.

For those who love making cards, our Cardmaking Kits are a great deal. With each kit you get all the supplies to make TWELVE cards. Which one is your favorite?

Free Workshop & Project Guides

Close to My Heart creates project guides for cards, scrapbook layouts, and home decor items in each catalog.  These are FREE to download and print for future project ideas. I take advantage of these guides each season, and often make pages like my “This Happened” layout where I used the So Much Happy guide for a layout using Something Fierce papers.  You can download each of the guides by going to the Kits section of my website, selecting each kit, and click “Download Guide”.

I also like to download the recipes for all the projects in the current catalog.  YES, THERE ARE RECIPES! You can do this by going to the Catalog on my website, then scrolling down to “Recipes”.

So….are you excited about a new catalog arriving soon? I have already been thumbing through it and am IN LOVE! As a Consultant, I get a sneak peek of everything AND I GET TO ORDER IT one month ahead of time.  This is just one of perks of being a consultant.  (FYI: If you join this month, you get new catalogs, new papers, and some additional freebies.)

Don’t forget that all the items in the catalog will be gone April 30th and many will begin to disappear from my website throughout the month as people snag those last minute items.  I suggest that you purchase what is on your wishlist sooner than later.  I would hate for you to miss out.

 I can’t wait to see what you create!


Adorr-rrable Scrapbook Layouts

Those who follow my blog know that I fell a little behind with my kits this past quarter, but, after a much needed rest, I am ready to share all of my completed layout kits & guides created using the current Seasonal Expressions papers. Today, I am going to start with the Something Fierce papers – bright, bold, adventurous, and full of fun.


This first layout is titled You Are Awesome and it takes advantage of the bright colors in the Something Fierce paper packet.  Those bright blues, yellows, and greens play so well together making it perfect for your “awesome” memories.

My Cute-A-Saurus layout is for your lover of reptile beasts.  I couldn’t resist using the the images from our new Cut-Apart papers.  Each one brings so much personality to this adorable layout.

Speaking of personality, adding Cricut™ cuts to my What An Adventure♥ layout added personality and dimension. I always incorporate some type of image from our Cricut Collections™ into my layouts, and, even with the cut-apart images, I feel that  handmade embellishments add to the pages.
