Kaleidoscope Pages


At my December workshop, I will be featuring the fun Kaleidoscope range. These pages were created using the paper and compliments along with the stamp set - Friend Tree (D1677). I love the bright colours in this range. 












I have also included Sorbet, Pomegranate, Canary, Pear & Thistle cardstock, along with Silver Foil tape. These pages are now ready to add some fun photos to.  

I have also had fun creating some Christmas gifts for Ali's teachers, and friends using Kaleidoscope, along with some Christmas cards.





Come back again soon to see what else is new and what I have been creating.

Urban Projects

During November, CTMH is featuring the Urban Collection - along with White Pines. Last weekend, I held my annual 12 hour workshop. Along with other projects, everyone had the opportunity to create with Urban. These are some of my layouts using this range. 

I plan to add some photos of our pets to this layout - when I get them printed!

 This page is based on the layout on page 88 in the Annual Inspirations (catalogue). I have used some of the Urban Complements to finish off the page.



For the pageabove, I used some of the Embossing Folders & Diffusers - featured on pages 122 & 123 of the AI to add some texture to the page. This page is based on the layout on page 122 (as is the one to the left using Pear, Sapphire & Crystal Blue Cardstock)  of the AI.  And of course, the page above goes with the layout I shared a little while ago that I entered into the Page Competition at our Annual CTMH Convention in the middle of October. I will share it again below - just because I love the page, but more especially the story. 


And don't forget the Simply Fundamental Scrapbooking Bundles available during November! Don't miss out on your choice of album as they are selling fast and some are already sold out! You will save $29.50 with the purchase of every bundle!

Come back again soon and see what else I have been creating and what is new!

Everyday Life™ Planner

Have you purchased your 2016 planner/diary? Do you like to personalize your planner? Then let me tell you about the Everyday Life™ Planner System from Close to My Heart which will be available to order in late November and will make a perfect Christmas gift!

The Everyday Life line introduces multiple products that work together seamlessly to create a planner, a My Crush book, or a product of your own creation!
It all starts with the Everyday Life album ($17.00), a beautiful, black three-ring album with gold foil design that measures 9 3/8” x 8 ¼”. This album size makes the album multi-purpose, allowing you to decide what you put in it. To fill up your album, the Everyday Life line will also include:
• The Everyday Life 2016 planner pages ($24.00): 154 planner pages, 12 monthly dividers with tabs, a pocket folder page, a designed page finder, and four sheets of stickers. With monthly and weekly spreads and printed dates, these pages have all the features you need to stay organised—and look good doing it!
• Everyday Life Perfect Plan roller stamp ($13.50): This fun and functional roller stamp coordinates perfectly with the label stickers, enabling you to customise your planner even further.
• My Crush® Everyday Life pages ($12.00): A set of 60 double-sided, gorgeous My Crush pages. These pages can be used on their own to create a beautiful My Crush book, or they can be combined with the planner pages to give you more room in your planner for preserving your memories while giving your planner even more flair.
• Everyday Life Washi Tape ($6.50): because every My Crush book needs a good washi for attaching photos and other memorabilia to your pages!
• Memory Protectors ($11.50): we’re introducing two new styles of pocket memory protectors sized to fit into the Everyday Life album. One has two 4” x 6” pockets, the other four 4” x 3” pockets. Use these to add your favourite Picture My Life™ cards and photos into the mix!
Altogether, the Everyday Life line gives you ultimate flexibility in creating a planner/My Crush book/pocket album uniquely customised to you. We anticipate most of these items to be available late November, with the exception of the washi tape, which will be available mid-December.
To add even more excitement, you can also get a discounted bundle for purchasing the album, planner pages, and roller stamp together. This bundle will give you these innovative and exciting products for just $45.95
This planner would make a great gift idea for family and friends! Or perhaps your partner could purchase one for you! Contact me to pre-order yours!

And I will gift wrap it for you too!
Come back again soon and see what is new and what I have been creating!
