February Paper Crafting fun!

Hello and wow …it’s February already!

25 weeks ago, our lives took a turn literally, around the corner – onto sweeter ground. This week I feel like I (personally) have finally settled – we’ve felt so much comfort from the day we moved in and I’m having a ‘feel good’ morning sitting here, listening to the birds outside (yes, I know!!) After all the busy-ness of moving in, setting up home, post op recuperating, laying new grass (lol) Christmas, family and our first summer with lots of swimming NOW the new year is into its full swing. I want to thank ALL my customers and team for supporting me and my CTMH business throughout these past 6 months. Together we have seen beautiful new products released and have created beautiful scrapbook layouts, SO many creative cards and had so much fun with papercrafts. Lucky the corona virus didn’t stop us in our tracks (only that one lockdown here in South Australia thanks to the pizza delivery man!)

I’m looking forward to sharing so much more Close To My Heart throughout 2021 with you all. Here are a few of our specials for February. To see these and more ‘wonderful’ paper crafting goodness check out my online shop

Perfect Match

I’ll be sharing this delicious collection all week long on my Sweet Paper Passion – Jacquie Paech fb page.

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.
