Happy New Year 2021

Welcome to 2021 – THIS is going to be a good year!

I’m bringing in the new year with our gorgeous new catalogue from Close To My Heart. I remember looking through this catalogue for the first time and thinking how gorgeous each and every product is! Just by looking at the sweet details on the front cover you can see the goodness to come. With 2 new paper collections ‘Happiness Lives Here’ and ‘Sweet Safari’ along with our every popular Mix In Paper Packs there is something for everyone.

HAPPINESS LIVES HERE – this paper collection is so beautiful with its soft colour palette which makes such an impact on the projects created.

SWEET SAFARI – right up my alley at this stage in my life with my 9 month old grandson Charlie. The papers are so bright and fun.

You can view and shop all of this and more in my online shop

Wishing you much love and a very happy start to your new year.

Blue Skies Cards

It’s been a great National Scrapbook Month with the gorgeous ‘Blue Skies’ collection up for grabs during May – it’s not just for scrapbooking, this fun, bright coloured paper is something for card makers as well!

How cute are these cards I created thanks to Close To My Heart ❣ any chance to make a card is sweet. I love sending hand made cards in the post to brighten someone’s day (especially during this pandemic we’re going through) in these isolation times.

I hope you have the chance to create a card for someone special to you.

Thanks for popping by – stay safe.
