Last Chance: Seasonal Expressions I

This is your last chance to get your hands on the Seasonal Expressions I kits, Hopscotch and Heartstrings before they retire at the end of March. These papers and embellishments make wonderful layouts and other art projects, perfect for spring or summer fun.

The Heartstrings WOTG helps you make 15 cards.  Hopscotch is a fun scrapbooking workshop that only takes a few hours to complete.  Click on the images below to take you to the Heartstrings and Hopscotch items available until the end of March.

SE1: Embossing Folders

 When I saw four more embossing folders in our Seasonal Expressions I book, I was really excited.  THEN, I looked closer and found my new favorite one.  Do you see it?  It's letter "D" in the list below.  Why?  Doesn't it look like fish scales? If you know me, you know what my occupation is and how much I love water and the things in it.  I am super excited to be able to use the new folder on all of my "fishy" cards and layouts.

Are there other things you can "see" in the embossing folders?  Chain link fence or a basket?  Kelp seaweed?

Many people across the country have had to deal with a lot of cold weather and snow.  Even though we don't have much cold weather here in Miami, it is always refreshing to see spring around the corner.  That means, bright blooming flowers, pretty spring dresses, and colorful Easter egg hunts.

Two of our new colors, Glacier and Flaxen, are featured in this month's My Reflection collection, called Hopscotch.  The stamp set coordinates with several cuts from the CTMH Cricut Artbooking cartridge to help make your layouts and cards stand out from the rest.

STOM: Choose Happy

Choose Happy

Sometimes we just need to be reminded that we feel the best when we are happy.  There is a reason why Pharrell's song, Happy, was a huge hit.  It wasn't just the snappy beat, although that certainly helped.  The lyrics talk about being in such a good mood, that nothing can bring you down. 

Choose Happy

This month's stamp set reminds me to be thankful and happy for what I have and the greatness that is what's to come. Use the different frames to showcase your loved ones and celebrate the joyous occasions.  They are the perfect size for mini-albums, or to frame sentiments on handmade cards.  

Also, I am offering a special for crafters who sign up as a consultant during the month of March.  When you sign up, you will receive not only the consultant kit, but also the NEW shoulder tote for FREE!  If you are interested in checking out a great group of people who share your interest in crafting, check out this opportunity.  This year will be my 10 year anniversary with Close To My Heart.  I wouldn't give up the experiences I've had with CTMH for anything.  I've met many wonderful people while being a part of a great forward-looking company, and supporting the thing that keeps me sane in a hectic life. Here's to another 10 years, because...

I choose happy.
