A Floral Wreath For Your Home

Do you enjoy creating personalized home decor for your space? Close to My Heart created an amazing wooden wreath kit that I fell in love with and wanted to create for my home.  After looking through the kit, I realized how easy it would be to personalize to match my decor. 

Each All Around Creativity Kit comes with a sixteen-inch wooden wreath, laser cut flowers and leaves, and an easy-to-assemble bow. Since I wanted to personalize this for my home, I chose to add a Cricut® cut deer image from the Artistry collection to adorn my wreath and make it unique to me. 

Even though this kit comes with four paper background designs, I chose not to use any of the paper circles behind my wreath. Instead, I trimmed down one of the paper circles to fit my Cricut® mat and used the background paper to cut out yellow polka-dot antlers. How cute are those?!

To personalize it even more, I inked the leaves, added stain to the wood wreath, and shaded the paper flowers using Red Candy Apple Ink and Red Shimmer mixed in a Spray Pen. If you wish to see how I did this and how I added all the unique touches to my design, you can view the process video below

I hope that today’s project inspired you to try something new and gave you a desire to create one of the All Around Creativity kits. These kits are available through February 29th, while supplies last, so make sure that you pick out one for your home, or special occasion, before they are gone.

Don’t Forget to Take Advantage of these January Specials

For me, the month of January just flew by. I am not sure if it was due to the fact that I had two weeks off from work or that time just seems to go by quicker now that I am older. Either way, if you are like me, you may have forgotten about some of the Exclusive Specials during the month of January. 

For National Paper Crafting Month, Close to My Heart designed a beautiful Wooden Wreath Kit for you to create. Each All Around Creativity wreath measures sixteen inches, includes laser cut flowers, leaves, and a bow, and is super easy to assemble.  You can choose from five different sentiments to match your home decor or the occasion you are celebrating. 

Each kit also includes FOUR different paper patterns to choose from to create your background. As a special added bonus, I am offering a FREE ONLINE CLASS to anyone who purchases one of the these All Around Creativity wreath kits. In this class, I will show you some tips and tricks for creating the wreath, how to color your wreath and flowers, and show you how I added some simple touches to personalize it for your home or special occasion.

Here’s peek of a project from one process videos I created for the online class.


January is also the final month for our Urban collection.  This popular collection was brought back for those of us who enjoy that distressed, metropolitan, steampunk look in our paper crafts.  

This collection of papers and stickers along with the workshop kit and stamp set will no longer be available after January 31st.  I have been able to make some fun creations using the Urban collection and I plan to make even more in the future. 

I hope that you have enjoyed this month’s creations and that you are looking forward to what is to come. During the month of February you can still purchase the two Valentine Specials (Oh My Heart paper pack & the Be Mine Banner) and you will have the chance to save 50% on one of our most popular products. Can you guess what it is?

You will have to wait until the first of February to find out. Make sure you are receiving my Newsletter and are following Miss. Carrie’s Creations on both Facebook & Instagram to find out what we have to offer you in February.

Come & Create at My February Workshops

This past week, I have fought a nasty virus that knocked me down cold. I had hoped to have a few creations for you, but ended up in bed most of the week so, instead, I have decided to show you I have planned for my upcoming Local & Online classes. 

Let Me First Tell You How My Classes Work

  • If you are attending a local class, you will need to register online and pre-pay for the class.  Once I have received your registration & payment, you will receive a confirmation email reserving your spot and kit. 
  • If you are attending an online class, you will register online and pre-pay if necessary (some classes are free with purchases from my website). In your confirmation email you will receive a link to a PRIVATE Facebook group full of content for you to learn from including cutting guides, videos, and a live video. This content is available to you for 45 days so that you can refer to it as often as needed. 

I like to make sure that each class teaches you new techniques and ways to use your supplies. It is important that you “leave” each class with a completed project and are inspired to try something new. 

Here is what you have to look forward to in the coming weeks
