Scrappy Saturday

For this edition of Scrappy Saturday I am featuring artwork created by my
CTMH team leader Brenda Rose.
Brenda made me this 6 x 8 page as an award.
Isn't it adorable?
I asked Brenda if I could share her artwork and of course she said "yes".
She is very generous like that!
If you join my Close To My Heart "Kraft-y Heart" team you also get to be part of the
Rose Blossoms (that's Brenda's team) and the Pacemakers (that's 
Karen Pederson's team).
Both these leaders help and share soooo much. 
They love CTMH and their team-mates.
Karen and Brenda are so amazing that they are on the CTMH incentive trip right now!
They are soaking up sun and enjoying adventures in Puerta Vallarta.
One of these years I hope to be joining them on a CTMH expense paid trip.
But, for now, working full-time and doing CTMH part-time I am happy with 
teaching workshops and sharing my love of CTMH on a bit smaller scale.
I love that CTMH welcomes consultants to create the opportunity that works best for them.
If you just want to enjoy a nice discount on your scrapbooking/cardmaking supplies or if you want to create a successful business like Karen and Brenda, Close To My Heart has a place for you.
There is a great incentive to sign up this month. 
Sign up as a Close To My Heart during February and in addition to the normal benefits of signing up, you will also receive the February, March, and April Stamp of the Month sets FREE—an additional $53.85 in retail value! 

You can read more about it HERE.

Here's another look at the February SOTM which will only be around a few more days.
Look at this detail of Brenda's coloring.  Just beautiful, right?
You get this cute stamp set FREE when you sign up to be a consultant this month.
If you have any questions
I would be happy to chat with you!
Now hop on to a wonderful weekend.
I guess the snow and winter weather is returning to Indiana.
Oh well, more crafty time!

In the Pink

Today I have two more cards to share with you created with the
stamp set from the
These cuties feature a pink and yellow color combo from the
Same sketch (included in workshop instructions)
just different patterns of paper and sentiments.
I love how you can mix and match any color within
a Fundamentals collection.
Whimsy is perfect for Spring!
After the tease of the warm weather I believe I have Spring fever!

Hello Baby!

Here's a slight variation on the card sketch that
goes with the
I used the general idea but combined it with
patterned paper in Pixie and Glacier.

I wanted to show my Card Club members how you can continue to use the stamp set with other papers.
The touch of Shimmer Trim on the side adds just the right sparkle.
Tip: you can paint White ShimmerTrim 
with watercolors to customize to your project.
These cardmaking kits are a great value, especially since you can use the stamp sets forever!
Thanks for visiting.

Happy Spring?

I know it is still February but with the
Easter Bunny Stamp of the Month
and the unseasonably warm temps we had this weekend
I am feeling like Spring!
Fort his card, I cut out the watering can using
the Flower Market Cartridge.
The bunny, sentiment, and the floral images are from the
February Stamp of the Month
It's so cute and only $5 with a $50 order or $17.95.
Here's another look at the set.

Sugar Rush

This layout is one from the
I was happy to add photos from my great-niece's first birthday party.
Her mom, my sweet niece, had the cutest decorations and the cake colors could not have matched the Sugar Rush papers better, lol.
Sweet Sadie Jo is now one and I am happy to be a great aunt.
Just wish I could see all my "greats" more.
 On Monday I will host a workshop where participants will make these 6 pages.
I love sharing the Close To My Heart Workshop Your Way kits because they make scrapbooking quick and easy. Just add photos later.
Here are the other two layouts.

Sorry about the wonky photos, the pages really do match up, lol.
Have a sweet Sunday and Monday!
Happy to have the day off Monday so I can get some organizing home projects done.
They will be some crafting time in there too!

More True Love

Back to share a few more cards created with
True Love.
This stamp set is so adorable and this sentiment is my fave.
$7 from the proceeds of this stamp set goes to

I love supporting such a great cause.
The papers I used are from the

I am loving the juicy, bright hues.
Here's another look at the stamp set.
Have a great weekend!
