Urban fun!

Being a mom of 2 sons, I have to say the Urban paper collection has to be my Favorite!  I'll share a layout and some other items I have created with this paper with you soon, but I wanted to share the video that our Home Office published about Urban.  Enjoy the video and you can click "Here" to purchase any of the products featured in the video. 


Rust. Metal. Peeling Paint. Wood grain. Scrapbooking. Wait, that doesn't seem right. Or does it? Meet our Urban collection–it has a personality as big as a city. Watch as Monica shows how to capture that energy and bring it to life in your artwork. 

After enjoying all you've seen in the video and wanting to purchase some or all of the items featured, here's a list of items used on projects for your reference.












Until my next post, happy crafting!

CTMH ~ Christmas Cards

Today I'm sharing a repost of the Close To My Heart's blog post with you!  If you love Christmas and making your own Christmas cards, then you will love this post!  You can shop HERE for items shown below to make these cards.

Get Ahead on Your Christmas Cards!

by Close To My Heart
There are two types of people in this world: those who barely let Halloween pass them by before pulling out the Christmas decorations, and those who keep every sprig of holly tucked away until at least December 1. No matter which type of person you are, you can’t deny that Christmas is the busiest time of year. So get ahead of that Yuletide dash by preparing your holiday cards now!
Why? Well, if you get started now, you’ll have time to create beautiful and detailed artwork like this:Get ahead on Christmas cards! #CTMH #closetomyheart #ctmhwhitepines #christmascards
Isn’t this family postcard adorable? The gold embossing adds such a festive feel, especially when paired with the White Pines paper packet. White Pines also makes a cheery statement on the Christmas tag. Customized gift tags like this are a wonderful way to brighten up your Christmas wrapping! The gold sequins add such a thoughtful detail. Speaking of details…Get ahead on Christmas cards! #CTMH #closetomyheart #ctmhwhitepines #christmascards
…there’s that gorgeous gold again! That stylish shimmer really makes the sentiments shine, while also adding a unique texture to the card. For even more texture, try using an embossing folder to create an embossed pattern like you see on the Chocolate cardstock. These details add a touch of class and luxury to your cards, don’t they? Ah, the power of details.
Get ahead on Christmas cards! #CTMH #closetomyheart #ctmhwhitepines #christmascards
But maybe you are looking for another solution for your Christmas cards, perhaps something you can duplicate quickly and easily. If that’s you, we recommend our Workshops on the Go® White Pines cardmaking kit! This kit comes with all the supplies you need to make 15 cards, plus a guide that gives you step-by-step instructions for how to cut, stamp, assemble, and accessorize the three different Christmas card designs.

November ~ Simply Fundamental Scrapbooking!

Hello and welcome November!  A new month and a brand new Amazing Special that Close To My Heart has created for us!  I have to tell you I am super excited for this special!  I read about it and couldn't wait to get to creating these fun layouts!  Are you ready to start creating beautiful layouts for yourself or for the New Year?  You could make these as a gift for someone special.  Or are you or someone you know new to scrapbooking?  This is the perfect starter bundle for you or them!  It would make a wonderful Christmas gift also!  

The Simply Fundamental Scrapbooking Bundle includes the following items:

Album style and design of your choice

Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Paper Pack

Fundamental Stickers Enchantment Pack

Fundamental Assortment - Peacock

Three sheets of White Daisy Cardstock
Memory Protectors Value Pack of your choice - Top or Side Load

This bundle has a retail value of approx $93, but you can purchase it by clicking here for only $71.80!  With this bundle purchase you automatically qualify to get the November Stamp of the Month stamp set for $5.  It has a great New Year's theme, you can see it later in this post.

Also included with this bundle is the new Simply Fundamental Scrapbooking workshop featuring five double page layouts you can make using all of the supplies in your bundle.   I have already made these 5 layouts and will show you my layouts below.  

Layout #1 - Lovely Day Layout

Layout #2 - Memories Layout
On this layout, you see the 2 small yellow squares on the right hand side, those 3x3 squares are not actually part of the workshop cutting guide, it shows pictures placed there, but I wanted my layouts to be ready for pictures in all spots.

Layout #3 - Laugh Layout

Layout #4 - Be Happy Layout
On this layout, you see the 2 small yellow squares on the left hand side, those 2x2 squares are not actually part of the workshop cutting guide, it shows pictures placed there, but I wanted my layouts to be ready for pictures in all spots.

Layout #5 - Hello Layout
On this layout, on the left page you see the 2 yellow squares, those pieces were not actually part of the workshop cutting guide, it shows pictures placed there, but I wanted my layouts to be ready for pictures in all spots.


After creating all 5 of these layouts, I had ALL of the following supplies left over.  And anyone that is a true scrapbooker knows, with all of these supplies, keep on creating ;o)
So that's just what I did!  I looked at the supplies I had available, I pulled out my How-To Program sketch books and I created the following layouts by adding a few more sheets of cardstock as the bases for the pages and ta-da, I have 7 more pages to share with you!!  My 2016 album is started, just add pictures!

On this single page layout, I used the November Stamp of the Month stamp set called Cheers, 2016! 
to stamp a random background to make my starter page for my new 2016 album.

Next, here are 3 more double page layouts I created using my left over scraps.



How great is this that I have an album already started for my 2016 pictures!!  I have my starter page and 8 double page layouts done in just a short amount of time!  If you place your order for the Bundle with me, I will help you create the above layouts I did with your left over supplies as well!

Here are the paper scraps I still have left after creating those additional layouts!  I think I'll create some cards using these pieces next.  Or maybe squeeze another layout out of them!

Since I shared those paper scraps, I might as well share also, here are the other Fundamental items I have left to create with!  This Bundle Special is one you do NOT want to pass up this month!



Until my next post, happy crafting!
