Happy December!!!! We are right on the brink of a cold front here in Michigan, so it is totally starting to feel like WINTER!!! I am happy to say that I have the majority of my Christmas decorations finished and we put up all our outside lights, too (you know, while it was like 60 degrees!). I absolutely LOVE this time of year, even though I am a little sad missing those family members that we have lost and looking ahead to next year when my son will be away at college. Life changes so quickly, but this is why I scrapbook – to preserve these precious memories that make my heart go bump.
OK – I know. I just released a Christmas kit with Beary Christmas! However, because some of us just can’t get enough of the holidays, CTMH gave us a second holiday kit with Silver and Gold. But, my friends, as you all know – I don’t follow directions very well. I created one Christmas layout (think of showcasing some of your favorite photos from multiple Christmas’!) and the others are entitled Joy, Birthday Cheer, and Love This. I am LOVING the black, white, silver and gold – can’t wait to get my photos on these pages!
Dont’ forget: I know this time of year is crazy town for lots of us, but I wanted to remind you that all of our paper packs in the Holiday Expressions will retire on December 31 (if they don’t sell out before then). Get yours before they are gone so that you won’t be sorry!Continue reading →
Hey, ya’ll!!! I hope your summer is off to a GREAT start! It’s almost time for the Close To My Heart National Convention in Utah – I can’t wait! But, before I head out, I wanted to share with you my latest workshop – Prickly Pear. One of the most exciting parts of this new kit is this:
Do you see those people on that layout from the Seasonal Expressions??? THAT IS US!!! My family. Page 27, to be exact. For the first time ever, I actually submitted some photos to CTMH and they used one of them! So we are now like totally #famousnotfamous. HA!!!!
Ok – enough of my nonsense, back to Prickly Pear. I love the colors in this kit – it will be perfect for your outdoor adventures and summer fiestas! These pages will even work for the Fourth of July with the primary colors – YAY!!!
Woohoo!!! Summertime is almost upon us! I am *so* ready for school to get out (June 14th for my kids and June 16th for the school that I sub at). It has just been gorgeous here in Michigan – lots of sunshine and warmth. I am looking forward to chillaxing! And, of course, catching up on my personal scrapbooking!
So – this latest kit, No Worries. MUST HAVE. MUST HAVE. MUST HAVE!!!!! I kept the layouts simple and fresh because summer is all about spending time *making* memories, not preserving them. Whether you are at the pool, at the beach, at the cottage, on vacation – this kit has something for you! If you don’t boat, leave off the boat accents. If you’re at the pool, don’t use the surf boards. So QUICK and EASY and VERSATILE! Trust me, you are going to want to have this kit for your memories! And – remember to use your flip flaps!!! They keep your pages clean and neat while allowing you to include ALL your favorite photos.
Happy Spring, ya’ll!! I am so excited to watch things bloom and spend more time outside. I love Spring – the beauty, the fresh start, new smells, and the sunshine. After the rain and snow we had here this week, I have my fingers crossed that winter will *finally* leave!!!
Some Kinda Wonderful is a great transition kit for the season! There is lots of green, which will be perfect for outdoor photos. The blue and gray will pick up hints of the sky, while the black helps to keep the bright colors grounded. Super cute and trendy! If you aren’t a fan of hot pink, the opposite side of the paper is a patterned white, so you can still use this kit with boys. I plan on using the “You Make My Heart Happy” layout for Mother’s Day. My kids will have to do a photo shoot with me on my day, won’t they???
Happy JUNE! I can’t even believe it – how time flies!!!
I just wanted to pop in really quick and let you all know that I have both Regatta and GeorgiePage Kits cut and ready to ship! I have a few Happy Times left, as well – but all of these page kits are while supplies last.
