Crafting with Kids & Close to My Heart

Get the kids in your life excited about crafting with the CTMH Kids Crafts virtual event! What is more important than spending time with your kids recording all the details of their life right now. Time is precious and fleeting, and every little moment needs to be recorded.   I would love for you to join me on August 21st, for very special event, geared toward a younger audience.


Introducing…CTMH Kids Crafts! This kid-focused event will be hosted by Maya Wihongi—Monica’s 9-year-old daughter—and will walk kids through each step of creating a fun mini album, just for them! Kids will love crafting along with Maya, honing their own creative skills.

This event has a dedicated bundle of products to help your little ones get the most out of this fun crafting experience!


Here is What You Get in Your Kit

Additional supplies needed:
Intense Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad
Black Journaling Pen (.01)


This child-focused event will walk kids through each step of creating an adorable mini album with the exclusive Born to Shine Album Kit! This kit includes a specially designed stamp set, a mini stamping block, Picture My Life™ Cards from the Summer Vibes collection, and a fun Story by Stacy™ 4″ x 4″ album. Kids will love crafting with the Born to Shine Album Kit and honing their own creative skills through the CTMH Kids Crafts event!

What if I have more than one kid?

I know the feeling – we had a small team at our house most days.  If you have more than one child participating in the event, you can chose to purchase a kit for each child OR purchase the following supplies and share the stamp, stamp block, journalling pen, and ink.  


The CTMH Kids Crafts virtual event will be held on the Close To My Heart (Official) Facebook page and streamed into my VIP Facebook Group. This event is free for anyone to watch, but in order for your kids to fully participate, you’ll need to order the Born to Shine Album Bundle along with those additional supplies listed above. 


This is the first time we’ve EVER offered anything like this!  We love providing opportunities for people to get excited about crafting, and we’re excited to help the younger generation get excited about it, too! There will be a special prize drawings during the event, so be sure to mark yourself as “Going”, at least 48 hours prior to the event, so your kids can be entered to win!

The Born to Shine album is a fun, easy project for all ages! Make sure to invite your kids or grandkids or host a special watch party on August 21st.

Here is What Comes in Your Bundle


With so many great products in one convenient package, this is the ideal bundle for hours of non-stop crafting fun! BUT the fun doesn’t stop there, my friends.  For those who enjoy cutting out their own images to add to their designs, Close to My Heart has TWO exclusive Happiest Place Digital Files just for you. 

These digital files can be used with any cutting machine you own.  I personally love how easy it is to upload these designs in to Cricut Design Space.  If you are not sure how to do that, you can view a short little tutorial HERE on my blog and view the video below. 

This is one of my first videos created. I am in the process of creating a new tutorial for you.

 If you love these Happiest Place products as much as I do, I would love for you to join me at the Close to My Heart THREE DAY Happiest Place virtual crop. This is a FREE EVENT hosted by Close to My Heart on August 26th – 28th, which I will be streaming to my VIP Group.  Now is the time to purchase your Happiest Place items for this crop while they are priced at a discount.  For a full list of the supplies you will need for the crop – click here . Cutting guides will be made available the week before the event.

REMEMBER: The Happiest Place collection is only available for a limited time while supplies last, so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to get these exclusive products. The discount will end on July 31st, so make sure to stock up on those 20% off bundles while you can.
