I love to share what I have learned in the art of scrapbooking and paper crafts.

They Are Here!

My bundles are here and I'm so excited!  I can't wait until I have time to play.  Wait till you see what I make with these exciting new products.  Meanwhile, I'll share a few of my layouts that I made at the beginning of this month.

These are a layout I made telling about my son's homecoming from Iraq.  Sorry, I tried to get the whole layout in one picture, but it wouldn't landscape!  Yikes! I have so much to learn about the blogging world!

While we were visiting my son and his family, my four year old granddaughter had her birthday.  She thinks that we will be going to New York each year for her birthday now!

Lucky For Me

I have to say that I am so happy that Lucky made it into the Fall/Winter Idea Book. It has to be one of my favorite paper packs. It is definitely my choice when I'm scrapping masculine pages or making masculine cards. Here is one I made last month. I'm really getting into layering my embellishments.   I'm sorry that the picture isn't the greatest. I'm working on my photography skills.

Patience is a Virtue......

Okay, so I have to work on patience!  I'm anxiously waiting for my new product to arrive this week and can hardly stand it.  It doesn't matter that I have plenty of paper and ribbon and bling to work with already.  I want the new stuff.  CTMH has done it again.  Every time they come out with a new Idea Book I never expect to be so excited and every with every new Idea Book I am more excited than I was with the previous Idea Book.  So, while waiting, I'll be giving sneak peeks of what is to come.

Drum roll please..............   We have a Cricut cartridge all our own called Art Philosophy.  But wait, there's more.  We don't only have a Cricut cartridge, but stamp sets that coordinate and coordinating chip board shapes.  Watch the video as Christine shows you how we do things Faster ~ Simpler ~ Easier!

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I love being a wife, a mother, and a grandmother.  There is nothing like it in the world!  Another love of mine is Close to My Heart.  I love the paper.  I love the ribbon.  I love the bling.  Can you tell where I came up with the name for my blog?  I returned recently from Convention held in Anaheim, California.  It was truly the happiest place on earth when all the consultants got a glimpse of the new products and new Idea Books!  Here is a recap of our Convention.  Now you can see why I love this Company!
