Where Have I Been?

It's been over a month since I've posted, and I thought I'd better tell you a little bit about where I've been!  I've received several e-mails wondering if I was okay, and I wanted to let you know that I am certainly okay!  

At the end of September, my team held our yearly Operation Smile crop with 72 lovely scrapbookers.  What a wonderful event full of heart, love, and generosity!  This year we raised 34 smiles - over $8000!

My team members created over 60 items for the Silent Auction.  From card sets to scrapbook pages to home decor, there was something for everyone!  This next photo is all my team members that attended.

Also during the month of September, I earned the Thailand Incentive Trip!  I am beyond thrilled to be taking my son on this trip with me.  He is so excited about the food and culture, and I am so grateful that I work for a company that still rewards hard work.  Thank you to all of you, my downline, and my family for helping me achieve this goal!  Close To My Heart will be providing airfare to Bangkok, Thailand, and Phuket, Thailand, and all of the accommodations.  The trip is at the end of January, and I can't wait to tell you all about it!

I just returned from the Close To My Heart album retreat.  It was in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ, and it was two solid days of scrapbooking.  We learned so many new techniques that I will be incorporating in my scrapbooks and into classes.  We left with a completed album, and I will treasure that time!

Here is a photo of my team members that attended with me and the first page of my album.

One more thing I want to let you know...

I will post my Kits and Workshops on here, but I will also have them posted in the Shop section of my Facebook business page.  I will always link them when I show them here, but I do want to streamline my blog and make it easier for you.  You are still able to purchase through PayPal, so it will be the same easy process!

I want my blog to be a clean, quiet place when you come to visit, and I want it to be a place where you are inspired to create.  

It was good to catch up with you!  Thank you for popping in today.  Make your day be blessed!

Holiday Expressions, the September Special and a Drawing for Free Product!

It's time!  The beautiful new Holiday Expressions is here!

Inside these pages you will find a fun and fresh Halloween paper packet, a gorgeous fall paper filled with rich, warm colors, and TWO Christmas papers!  One set is filled with fun patterns, and the other is so elegant.


September is National Stamping Month at Close To My Heart, and we have a wonderful special for you!  From the Heart is so beautiful, and it was designed with the stamper in mind! 
Take a look at these lovely easel cards.

Aren't they gorgeous?  The exclusive From the Heart card kit gives you all the materials you need for creating 12 interactive cards, including an E-size stamp set with heartfelt sentiments and stamps you can layer together for exquisitely artistic cards. Available only during September, this card kit is a must have that will help you create elevated artwork from the heart.

You can buy the card bases and stamp set separately, but when you purchase the two together, you will save 20%!  The whole kit is just $34.95, and here is what you will receive along with directions on how to create the cards:

Once you run out of cards, you can order more separately during the month of September so that you can create more easel cards.  This is such a beautiful and creative kit!

Once a year, I run a personal special simply because I love having you as my customers, and I appreciate you so much.  I thought this was the perfect month because I love the From the Heart kit so much.  I am giving away $315 in product!  Simply place an order of $50 or more in September, and your name will go in the drawings.

He Has Made Everything Beautiful

There is a new stamp set called Inspired Words, and it is my favorite stamp in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.  It is a set of 21 inspirational stamps in beautiful fonts.  Let me show you what I made, and then I will share the stamp.

I am so glad the sun is shining today so that you can see the beauty of the Bashful Glitter paper.  I used a couple of other stamps on this card, too.  There is a triple line stamp on the Thanks a Million stamp, and I used that with Bashful ink to make the background of the card.  I embossed the flowers from Happily Ever After with white embossing powder on vellum, and then I water brushed the back with Bashful and Willow ink.  The diagonal stripe paper is from Basic Fundamental paper pack.

This is the Inspired Words stamp set.  Such a beautiful set!

We recently took a little getaway up to a lake in central Minnesota for a few days.  I am so thankful that when we only have a few days, we have such beautiful weather!  This cartridge was perfect for adding elements to a page!

I used the new Adventure Fundamentals for this page.  Wait till you get your hands on this watercolor-look paper packet.  Don't you think the Pacifica piece is perfect for the background?  I want a whole pack of that paper for out lake photos!  

I used the following keys to make my Cricut cuts:
K - the sun
M - fish and fishing pole
O - rest & relax
P - sunscreen
Sunshine Key - sunshine phrase

This will easily become one of my favorite cartridges!  It makes you want to go and do just so that you can make pages!!

Now it's time to move on to Lynn.  You are sure to love what she's created!!
