Fresh Bear Hugs

I loved creating these Bear Hugs cards in bright fresh colours
and it was even better sending them out to friends in the mail.
I think it would even make a great ‘welcome baby’ card.

It was fun creating these cards with the ‘Share the Joy’ Thin Cuts and this months Stamp Of The Month ‘Bear Hugs’ …I even had the girls making them at my card classes too as they had ‘just the right person’ to send one too! Much thanks to Masumi Mizuno for the colour inspiration and idea for these cute cards. You can follow her on Instagram at masuchanmi – Masumi is one of our new Close To My Heart Consultants in Japan, how exciting is this news – Close To My Heart has expanded into Japan and I know they will love it just as we have here in Australia.

Sending sweet bear hugs to you all today.

Happy 6th Anniversary!

This month I’m celebrating my 6th Anniversary with Close To My Heart and, can I tell you, I have LOVED every, single minute of it! Each year brings with it new experiences, I have the opportunity to meet new people and I continue to enjoy sharing all things creative.

In 2017 I had the pleasure of touring Close To My Heart Home Office in Utah, definitely one of the high-lights for me over the past 6 years!

I’m looking forward to the next 6 years and what it will bring …I know the next 6 weeks will be very exciting! I have scrapbooking workshops coming up, card classes, craft fairs, creative training with gorgeous consultants and I’m hosting a Close To My Heart Launch (NEW Catalogue Launch – EXCITING!) with girls from all over South Australia here in my home town Mount Barker, South Australia – just have to say ‘life is good’!

Wishing you a very happy day.

True Love Sparks

Add sparkle to your celebration projects this June with our Stamp Of The Month.

ITS YOUR DAY TO SPARKLE – S1906

We have you covered for all the big celebrations with this stamp set right down to ‘Make A Wish’, Birthday and Anniversary. And, how gorgeous is that cake – I want a piece right now!

Here’s a super quick Anniversary card I made using Eggplant ink and background paper from the True Love Paper Pack. Stamping the cake twice on White Daisy Cardstock meant I could cut out an extra set of flowers to add to the top of the card, so cute!

How sweet is this same cake stamp used as an embellishment on this wedding page layout.
Stamped in Intense Black In and coloured lightly with our watercolour pencils.
Team this stamp with our featured collection True Love
and you’ll have all your celebration memories complete!
Using our Shimmer Brushes in assorted colours will add extra sparkle to your cake too.
