May Scrap Club Layouts

These are the layouts for my May Scrapbooking Club - they were SO fun to make!  I used the papers from the new My Reflections kit Cherry-O.  This kit features Tulip, Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue, Colonial White and Chocolate.  I stamped titles, images and trim detail using the following stamp sets:  You're Sweet, Field Trip Alphabet, Headline Alphabet, Boutique Borders and Simple Stitches.  I also used some Colonial White Bigger Brads for a finishing touch. 

My scrapbooking club members get to make gorgeous layouts each month with the latest new products from the CTMH idea book.  Here are details on this fabulous club.  I started my business with this club five years ago and it's still going strong!  I'd love to have you join us....

CTMH Scrapbooking Club
- Would you like to have a designated time, once a month for you to get caught up on your scrapbooking?
- Have you ever wanted to start scrapbooking but feel a bit overwhelmed?
- Do you feel like you are just too far behind to even get started?
- Do you currently love to scrapbook and want to expand your knowledge in techniques & layout design?
- Do you like to scrapbook but never seem to find the time and have pictures piling up?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then THIS is the class for you. Come and learn how fun, creative and quick scrapbooking can be. I will teach you several different page concepts and you will go home each month with 2-4 ready to go TWO-PAGE scrapbook layouts!
What: Come and experience HANDS-ON how easy scrapbooking really is. Each month you will learn new concepts for your pages and go home with a finished 2-page layout. You’ll receive a packet of pre-cut paper and embellishments you need to complete your layouts, and have access to my stamps and ink pads. All you have to do is bring your adhesive and your photos if you’d like. You will have your choice of themes and colors to be sure that you are making pages you can use with your pictures. I will have those choices available to you the month before the class.
***If you need to miss a class, you can make it up!***
Cost: The class is actually free! The commitment however is to a $25 purchase of Close To My Heart products each month (before S&H). The fun part is that you are guaranteed to be the “hostess” one of the months that we meet. On that month, you will receive $25 in FREE product of YOUR CHOICE. If you’d like to complete additional layouts above the one included, you can add on each additional 2-page layout for only $2.00.
Commitment: The commitment is for a full 6-months. You can join the class during any month! If, for some reason, you are unable to attend one of the classes, all you need to do is give me a call with your class order. I will save your packet and you can do it the following month or attend one of my make up classes.
Call me at (503) 393-9146 or e-mail me at to join!

Cards from Miracle Kit

I had some leftover papers and embellishments from the Miracle kit (CTMH's awesome National Scrapbooking Month promotion kit), so I decided to "whip" up some quick cards with them and I am SO pleased with the results.  These came together super fast, thanks to the Wishes book.  I used the leftover My Stickease and Dimensional Elements from the kit, added a few Just Blooms flowers and stamped sentiments from the Thank You stamp set (one of my all time faves) and voila!  They were done in a flash!   I even still have a little bit of paper left from the kit.  You still have the rest of May to order your awesome Miracle kit.  It's just $10.00 with a $40 purchase, $5.00 with a $60 purchase or FREE when you sign up to be a CTMH consultant.  Get yours now!

New Idea Book Cards - Last Day!

This is one of my favorites!  It is a cute little 4.5x4.5 size and the Chocolate paper piece actually is a band around the entire card that slides on and off!  It uses the papers from the new Cherry-O kit again, which features Sweet Leaf, Chocolate, Tulip, Crystal Blue and Colonial White.  I used the Cherry-O WOTG stamp set and the rock and roll stamping technique on the bowl and the cherries.  Finished it off with some Chocolate ribbon and a Tulip brad and there you go - super cute and easy!

New Idea Book Cards - Day 3

Today's card is a 5x7 size and uses papers from the new Cherry-O kit - I LOVE how cute this kit is!  Super fun.  My stamping was done with the You're Sweet stamp set, along with the Cherry-O WOTG set.  I used the masking stamping technique and added some Colonial White brads for accent.  The colors for this kit are Tulip, Sweet Leaf, Chocolate, Crystal Blue and Colonial White.  I added some Blush as well for my little strawberry.  Check back tomorrow for one more "sweet" card!
