I’m sure only once in a lifetime this will happen to me – I fell in love with a page layout and with a slight change of the title made it fit for one of my fun, family photos.
When I first saw this AWESOME page layout by Close To My Heart , I knew I had to do this! Here is my play on the title ‘Sweet as a Peach”.With this photo of my gorgeous girls I took the layout, with a slight change of 2 letters, made it a perfect title for our fun, family page!
The original artwork from Close To My Heart it’s SO pretty. The Gimme Some Sugar Collection is SO pretty too. You can view the entire collection in my online shop
Have a sweet day.

I love creating special cards, like this ‘hugs’ card – there is always someone special who needs a hug. If you can’t give them a hug in person you can send them your love and a ‘hug’ through a sweet, personalised card.
This week I’m hosting my March Card Buffet. A fun event where you make 6 cards for just $15. Everything is pre-cut, the stamps are set up on blocks, the inks are in the basket along with any other ‘special’ products you need to complete each card. You choose a card and begin to create. It’s a whole lotta fun and a great way to build your own personal stash of cards AND, I LOVE that you have the chance to play with crafty product you normally wouldn’t use! This ‘hugs’ card is just one of the cards on offer this week.
Join me this Wednesday and Friday for my Card Buffet 10.00am – 12noon for more details email email@example.com
Hugs to you.
I earn’t this amazing trip of a lifetime with Close To My Heart – a Mediterranean Cruise.
It was exciting, amazing and a fabulous experience and to share it with my husband Paul made it even more of an awesome adventure!
We did so much and saw so many places I am keen to share with you all.
I LOVE this photo!
Anyone who knows Paul knows he is the last person on this earth to want to have his photo taken but I cornered him on the ship with this photographer and it pretty much sums up our happiness from our time overseas – we had the best time, seeing amazing places with some amazing people.
Over the next couple of weeks in between my scrapbooking classes, card classes, paper crafting days and preparing for our 2018 Australasian Close To My Heart Convention, to be held in Melbourne this month, I’ll be sharing our story, our amazing trip of a lifetime thanks to Close To My Heart.
A shout out to all the wonderful Close To My Heart girls who also earn’t this amazing trip. So many amazing moments spent with these girls, so many heart warming memories made with these girls – I LOVE this photo to of us all on the Swarovski Crystal Stair case on our cruise ship MSC Meraviglia – so sparkly!
…and this is what we call work!
Happy days and happy memories.

On my page here I paired the Chelsea Gardens Paper Pack with the Charcoal Cardstock to give it a solid cornerstone. The Chelsea Gardens Compliment pack made for quick and easy embellishments along with a couple of Charcoal daisy’s cut from the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge (I love these daisy a lot!) The title came from our January Stamp Of The Month and I finished my page off with a sweet Scallop Border made with our Thin Cuts.
This cute card I made with our White Daisy Cards and Envelopes using the sweet striped paper and floral paper from the Chelsea Gardens Paper Pack. I’ve fallen in love with the Charcoal Cardstock and find it tones in well with a lot of background and textured papers in our range so I added it to my card to give definition. I stamped my title with the January Stamp Of the Month and finished it off with Whisper Twine and a couple of Chelsea Gardens Dots and Gems.
All these wonderful new products are available now – out of our NEW Seasonal Expression 1 Ideas Book.
