February News

During the month of February, when you purchase one of Close To My Heart’s alluring coated canvas albums you will be eligible to receive a second album of your choice at half price. That is a savings of over $22! These albums are available in a gorgeous variety of colours and patterns in both post-bound and D-ring styles—perfect to pair with traditional, Studio J®, or pocket scrapbook layouts. This offer is only available while supplies last, so make certain to get your order in early to ensure you can choose the styles and colours you love. They’re going fast and are built to last; so don’t delay—place your order today!

I love the February Stamp of the Month (SoM) - A Happy Hello! It is very versatile. I have already used this set to make some pages and cards. Below are just one of each, but come back soon to see what else I have made. 

This is a page that my dear friend, Penny showed me. I just need to add some photos to finish it off! You can see that the A Happy Hello Stamp set coordinates really well with the gorgeous Hopscotch paper pack, the Hopscotch Complements & the Hopscotch Assortment! Don't miss out on the fabulous range which is only available till 31st March 2015!
Another friend showed me how to make this card - you will find a similar one in the Annual Inspirations on page 18 with the A Happy Hello stamp set. You can get this stamp set for just $5.00 with any purchase of $75.00 during February! Don't miss out on yours!

Come back later and see some more projects I have created using this stamp set.

Until then, happy scrapping......                                                                                                                                                             Doreen

.....more Year >> Noted.....

There are only a few more days to get your Year >> Noted Kit celebrating National Papercrafting Month! Don't miss out! With any order of $75.00 you can get this kit for just $10.00 or $15.00 with a mini album!
I used instructions by Susan Williams - a fellow consultant - to create a set of 15 cards to add to my collection.  I love the colours in the papers and am very pleased with how the cards turned out! Don't forget, if you want to make your own cards, you can book in to one of my workshops.

Of course, you could use whatever sentiment you wanted on your cards to personalise them.  Or you could change the layouts - the options are endless!

Happy Australia Day!                                                                                                      Doreen

Artfully Sent Cards

I have had my Artfully Sent Cricut Collection for some time, but not used it much so this year I am going to make lots of cards and more using it! These are the first 6 I have made. I was able to use lots of scraps to add colour to the flowers!

All 6 cards are similar - I just have to add a sentiment to each to finish them off. If you would like to create cards like these, book into one of my workshops.

I look forward to catching up with you soon.                                                         Doreen
