Subscription Kits Available!

I love subscription kits and I love the Cut Above Kits that CTMH has - anything that gets those scrapbook pages done faster is awesome in my book!  Well...CTMH has now combined the two!  I've ordered the year subscription and plan on creating videos to show you how to put each monthly kit together.

Keep your creativity flowing with Close to My Heart’s new Craft with Heart subscription, where you receive regular deliveries of project kits that will keep you connected with your passion.  

The Craft with Heart subscription sends you a Cut Above layout kit for every month. Each kit comes with pre-printed base pages, paper pieces, die-cuts, and stickers to make two two-page scrapbook layouts - that's four pages total, plus the kit includes three 12" x 12" Memory Protectors! Take a look at the layouts included in the upcoming box. What a great way to get some beautiful pages done and in your photo album quickly!  You can see bigger photos and more info HERE.

You have 3 Craft with Heart subscription options depending on how often you want to receive your deliveries. Note that only the 1-year subscription is available for pre-order now. The other options will be available on Sept. 1, with the release of the new Idea Book - wait until you see the new idea book! 

I think the 12-month option is definitely the best deal due to the lower price for each kit and the free shipping.  This option also includes free 4x6 prints from Persnickety Prints!

Note that the Craft With Heart subscription does not work in conjunction with the stamp of the month or Hostess Rewards. In order to give you these awesome discounts and free shipping, it is its own stand-alone program.

2017 Fall Craft Fair

I've been spending lots of time getting ready for the fall craft fair at my church next Friday and Saturday.  I got a lot of my ideas from lyriclover810 on YouTube.  Her ideas are wonderful and she is so generous to share her talents!!  I was looking for ways to use a lot of my stash and her projects were perfect for that purpose.  Here are pics of some of the items I have made:

Swan Lake Blog Hop

Welcome to the Craftin' and Stampin' Crew 

Blog Hop!

Myself and some of my Craftin' and Stampin' Crew members decided we wanted to share 
some of our creations on a monthly basis with the monthly featured paper collections. 
This hop will be featuring the October Featured paper from Close To My Heart called Swan Lake

My team has put together TONS of amazing inspiration to help you 
get crafty with this AMAZING paper packet and coordinating pieces!!

I chose to create the six scrapbook pages in the Workshops Your Way project sheets.  Even after making these cute pages I have loads of supplies left.  I'm estimating that by adding in card bases I will be able to easily create 15 greeting cards.  These kits are so awesome because you get everything you need to create (except your adhesive of course) all in one package.  They are great to throw in your bag when you are going to a crop or just to pull out at home when creativity is low.  Once you start digging in you will find all sorts of other ideas will pop into your head to use the leftovers.

Your next stop is Angela!

If you lose your way along this hop, please see the line up below:

Jeepers Creepers Blog Hop - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Welcome to the Craftin' and Stampin' Crew 
Blog Hop!

Myself and some other Craftin' and Stampin' Crew members decided 
we wanted to share some of our creations on a monthly basis with the 
monthly featured paper collections. 

This hop will be featuring the September Featured paper from
Close To My Heart called Jeepers Creepers! 

Our team has put together TONS of amazing inspiration to help you 
get crafty with this AMAZING paper packet and coordinating pieces!!

I am finishing up our band of wonderful crafters but if you missed anyone, 
just click below to see their wonderful creations:


We went on a fun trip earlier this year to celebrate my 50th birthday.  One of our destinations was Universal Studios Orlando.  I am a huge Harry Potter fan and I was not disappointed!  When our blog hop this month tasked us with using the Jeepers Creepers paper from Close To My Heart I knew instantly that the cute lightning bolt paper was screaming for me to use it to capture my memories from this awesome trip.  I also used some of the Jeepers Creepers Compliments, Jeepers Creepers Washi Tape, and some retired epoxy bubbles (to get a similar look you can take our Clear Sparkles and color them with a black Shin-Han (or another type of alcohol) marker - make sure you let it completely dry before touching it).

I surprised myself by not using any stamping or Cricut cuts on this layout.  However, I have some ideas for the rest of the paper packet and some Cricut cuts from our new cartridge Flower Market.  There is a sugar skull on it that is too adorable?!?  I've just got to use it!!
