Just Checking In & A Beach Party!

Hi everyone!

I just received a big Close to My Heart order with some awesome beach-themed stamps! Take a look at this pretty paper, scrapbook page, and card ideas! Aren’t they super cute??? You can shop this collection on my website HERE.

The new beach kit is called Beach Party, I ordered the Scrapbooking Kit, and some matching stamps and thin cuts! (Below) Don’t forget to add the super cute Stamp of the Month, Voice of the Sea, which is only $5 if you spend $50, or it is FREE if you are a VIP customer and spend $50.

Smitten Product Bundle – Last Chance!

I am “smitten” with this line of products from Close to My Heart! The design paper is adorable and is great for card making or scrapbooking! One side of the paper is pretty neutral too for any kind of pages.

Last chance because there are limited quantities left! You can shop my store page HERE to order yours today!

Here are some of the sample cards I made using the supplies from the kit.

I also took my leftover papers and stickers and created my own layouts.

You can shop on my site 24/7 at http://sweetpiecesbyme.closetomyheart.com. Thank you for visiting my blog! Happy crafting!

CTMH Boo Crew, Pumpkin Spice & Slimline Celebration

Hello stamping and scrapbooking friends! I’m so excited about some super cute new products by Close to My heart! Now that the holidays and cooler weather are nearing, I was thrilled to see CTMH come out with their new collection called Pumpkin Spice and the Halloween line called Boo Crew. They also have a new Slimline Celebration collection to celebrate National Stamping Month (NSM) in October. I’ll share each of the collections, some links and photos! Be sure to pop on back to my site to see some adorable projects and cards using these products.

First up is Boo Crew. So cute for scrapbook pages, mini albums, or treat bags! Speaking of treat bags, I am working on some cute smarties candy treat holders that are adorable…video coming soon! You can also join in on the workshop once you purchase your kit. Just go to the event page on CTMH’s Facebook page HERE. This event will be on October 12th.

Next up is Pumpkin Spice! I don’t know about you, but we had a long summer here in Colorado, so I’m ready for boots, sweaters, firepits, hot chocolate, and pumpkin spice everything! 😉 You can join in to watch the Facebook live event using either the Cardmaking or the Scrapbooking kit, or both! The cardmaking one is on October 19th, and the scrapbooking one is on October 26th. These are free, live events, and there are usually giveaways!

Quick & Easy Phone Mount & a Quick Project Life Layout

Here is a quick video on how to make a super easy and inexpensive phone mount for making crafting/stamping videos! Yes I know the video is sideways (ugh!). I didn’t realize that I had to turn it before uploading it. Hopefully my next video will turn out much better!

I also made a Project Life 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page in the 2nd half of the video. I used the Let’s Get Away Project Life Bundle, #140300 $34.00, 12″ X 12″ Project Life Photo Pocket Pages #135295 $7.00. You can purchase any of these items on my Stampin Up website HERE. It was super fast and so cute! I’m in love with all of Stampin Up Project Life Kits. It makes scrapbooking SO easy!

I hope you enjoyed this quick video, that it helps you in some small way…and I promise they will get better! Ha! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! ❤
