Bloom with Grace

 For today's Workshop, I want to focus on a workshop that is currently available until the end of October. Today I am featuring the Bloom with Grace kit. 

This kit is perfect for your fall photos! It's a little bit country, a little bit southwest, giving you lots of options! This paper suite is also available in a card kit. The great thing about this kit is the large sticker sheets, so no fussy cutting! There is also a Bloom with Grace stamp + thin cut available so you can add your own embellishments, or make additional layouts or cards with the leftover paper scraps! This collection also coordinates With the Bloom with Grace Cricut collection, which can be purchased through my affiliate link
Now, when I cut my kit, I went a little rogue. Instead of using the full sunflower sheet for the last layout, I used a piece of cardstock as the base, then I cut the flower sheet to fit the empty space, giving me most of the flower sheet to use as extra! 

There are a ton of things you can do with the extras. You can make cards, or there is even enough for another layout! What did you make with your scraps? Let me know in the comments! I will show what I made with the scraps in another post. 

If you would like to order your own kit, It comes with all of the paper you need, plus instructions with color pictures. If you would like to build the kit exactly as shown, you will also need Espresso ink and the Bloom with Grace stamp set and thin cut. You can order your kit HERE

I told y'all that I would share the cards I made from the extra paper I had left, and here they are!
I made a total of 5 cards, but I could have made a couple of more if I wanted to. I still have a little bit of paper left. 

This paper pack is still available until August 31st, or while supplies last. 

AND it's apart of the BOGO sale that is happening this month! You can check the sale out HERE.

I used Archival Black ink, Raspberry, Lemon, and Carolina ink colors through out the cards. I also added a little ribbon to help give the cards a little bit of shimmer. 

I got the idea for this last card from the current catalog, Pg 159. It's the August stamp of the month, which is available for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase OR you can purchase it on it's own for $18.95. You can get it HERE, or you can ship anytime just by clicking on the Shop Now link at the top of the page.

I hope you enjoyed the cards! Keep checking back, soon I will have some NEW goodies to show you that will be coming out Sept 1st!

Until then, Happy crafting!

So Many Candles

I just finished making these cards, and I have to tell you, they were so easy to make!
They are from the So Many Candles Workshop Your Way kit. The kit includes cutting instructions, except for the ink, blocks for the stamps and adhesive. You can purchase the workshop kit HERE. It is also apart of the BOGO event that CTMH is having this month.

I even had enough paper left to make more cards! Or I might scrapbook with the paper scraps.. once I decide what I want to make with the scraps, i'll definitely post them here for you all to see!


The BOGO special is while supplies last (of course) and ends when our current catalog ends, which is August 31, 2019. you can shop our current products HERE

That's all I have for today, it was great chatting with you!

We've got A LOT of things happening with CTMH! The current catalog is ending at the end of this month, and a new one starts in September! 

I wanted to touch base with you, to show you what the specials are, and to let you all know I am still here! (the few of you that still follow me :) ) 

Ok, 1st. We have the current special of BOGO. This is for some of the work shop your way kits (WYW) 
This sale is available from now until the end of August, while supplies last. You can click HERE to see what's available!

We also have a special for those that are thinking of becoming a consultant! I love the friendships I have made, and the support from CTMH is wonderful, no matter if you are a hobbyist, or looking to build a business, there is a place for everyone! check out the join my team tab at the top of this page for more info! OR you can click HERE

One of my favorite paperpacks from this catalog is featured in another special. 
This special is also available until the end of this month, (while supplies last, of course) you can get more info HERE, and once I get my kit finished, I will show it here on the blog. It makes a great gift (which is what I am using it for) or for that special occasion.

Good afternoon!

I hope everyone is doing well on this fine Thursday afternoon. 

I have been slacking in my blog posting duties. I ended up having surgery in August, then school started, then the kids had swim practice, swim meets... you get the idea. 

I am finally feeling better, and I am starting to get crafty again. I have done some crafting, These 1st 2 layouts come from the Oh What Fun workshop your way kit, which is a fun Holiday/Christmas kit, that has more contemporary colors for your holiday photos. (It kinda reminds me of the colors form the movie The Grinch). If you are more into Traditional Christmas colors, you'll want to click HERE  for our 'Tis the season kit. 

The layout below Oh What Fun is from Hello Pumpkin, which is still available, and makes cute layouts, not just for Halloween! They make great sports pages, fall pages, and the plaid is just great all by itself.  The work shop your way (Or WYW) come with everything you need to create beautiful layouts or cards (we have card kits too!) all you have to do is add photos, and you are done! 

I am hoping to blog more regularly, and I hope to hear from you! Leave me a message letting me know you stopped by!

Take care,

CTMH convention


This past weekend was the Close To My Heart annual convention, held in Las Vegas! It was soo much fun! We stayed at the Red Rock Resort hotel, which was absolutely beautiful! We had business classes, new product info, and beautiful artwork I can't wait to share with you all! For now, I have a few pictures to show you of my time at convention. They have announced that next year's convention will be in Provo, Utah. I am excited for that, as I have never been to Utah! We will be close to the home office for CTMH, so maybe we will get a tour! (they had a tour of the office at last year's convention, but I wasn't able to go)

These pictures: Sticky boy and his bride Sticky girl! A couple pictures of the hotel, The new Holiday SE that will go live in September (look for updates and pics soon!) Last picture is the artwork I shared at the Consultant showcase.

I will be posting new product info soon, as well as a few changes for the upcoming year.

Thanks for reading!
