For Always

For Always GreenHere is another sneak peak at one of our new paper packs.                                            For Always has been one of my favorites to play with.  Who doesn’t love Black and White?  and then throwing in some green!

For Always Green 3

The coordinating stickers are beautiful and are perfect for creating titles and these beautiful little embellished clusters.

For Always Green2I just love the way this layout turned out with my black and white family photos.  If you love this layout you can create it with me on February 16th at my all day crop.  I will have all of the new products and new catalogs.  We will be creating some beautiful layouts!

Whooo’s your Valentine

So I love GLITTER but I hate it getting everywhere.  I mean seriously I would love everything to have a little sparkle but…I just hate cleaning it up.  Enter in one of my most favorite additions to the new catalog…Glitter paper!  It is just beautiful and in 6 different colors.  You can’t order out of the new catalog until February 1st but if you order $35 worth of product with me through January 31st you can get the great Whooos your Valentine kit which includes (drumroll) silver glitter paper!  I am in the process of making my Valentines but I bought the super cute monkey placemats (My inspiration picture in the previous post) and just had to get a layout made.  Valentines

I loved all the different hearts in the Whooos Your Valentine set.  I also loved the patterned background stamps so I decided I wanted to make my own patterned paper using the hearts and chevron stripe.  Keep in mind all of the the white space will be photos.  I cut hearts out using my Artiste and stamped the coordinating stamps on them.  I cut the I Love You out on the Artiste and I think it completed the page.  It came together pretty quick and I just love how the glitter paper makes it pop.

Here is the deal if you spend $35 with me through this month you qualify for the Whooos Your Valentine kit for $10.00 (retails for $40.00) which takes your order to $45.00.  Spend $50 and you qualify for the Stamp of the month for $5 (which retails for 17.95).  01_13_SOM_Valentine_stamps.ashxSo through the end of January you can spend $55.00 (before tax and shipping) and receive $93.00 in great Close To My Heart Products.  To put some icing on your cake spend $55.00 with me and order the Whooos Your Valentine  Kit and I will send you this layout all cut out and stamped.  All you have to do is put it together and add your pictures!    You don’t want to miss this one!  Contact me or you can shop here.  After you place your order online shoot me an email or comment under this post that you took advantage of my $55.00 deal.
