Today I’m in Salt Lake City – Utah at the Close To My Heart 2017 Convention and, as luck would have it, I’m celebrating my 4th Anniversary with CTMH today 1st July!
These past days meeting new consultants from all over the US and Canada has been fabulous. The chatting, laughter, hugs, meeting new friends, card swaps, catching up with old friends, training, fabulous creative sessions, seeing and hearing about the NEW product releases AND the NEW Annual Inspirations Ideas Book, a special Australian luncheon with Brian Holman and Monica Wihongi, lots of FREE new product and many, many selfies taken along with a wonderful tour of our CTMH home office and the absolute highlight for me was, when I was setting up for Creativity Showcase I turned around and met face to face with Jeanette Lynton – Oh WOW!! She came to see all the consultants art work, this was very special.
Saturday morning we heard from Jeanette and what’s she’s up to. She is so involved in every aspect of Close To My Hard and she is one funny girl!
Thanks for reading today, I’ll share more fabulous memories from my US trip and CTMH Convention soon.

Many fabulous memories have been made this May for my family and I and one I’m extremely proud of is the Live Beautifully 20 card workshop I created for
Close To My Heart. This was such a joy to make and was made available to all consultants all over the world to share with their customers.
There are 10 designs and you can make 2 of each card.
I think they are so pretty.
Especially for National Scrapbook Month, Close To My Heart made available
the ‘Live Beautifully’ collection which included a gorgeous paper pack, stamp set and
Cut Above Kit.
The Live Beautifully Paper Pack and Stamp Set.
The Cut Above Kit has all the product you need to create 10 beautiful page layouts.
All you need is your favourite adhesive to bring it all together.
I held my 2017 Creative Escape last weekend with the most amazing group of girls and they all loved creating pages and my card workshop over a weekend of fun and lots of laughter.
If you’d love your own ‘Live Beautifully’ collection of papers or a Cut Above kit email me firstname.lastname@example.org

Our Mum is the BEST! I love that she lives around the corner from us and I love that I can send her a message saying ‘come up for dinner’ and she can come ’cause she not far away. She is there whenever we need her, she always makes time for us, makes a great coffee and will always help to mend clothes (but she won’t sew in new zippers!). I love that she has recently updated to an iPhone 5 AND then she googled where she used to live in Amsterdam …that is SO cool. Not only is she there for my sisters, brother and myself she is there for all the grandkids and has unconditional love for them all. As we always say the best place in the world is at Oma’s house!
To celebrate mums I’ve created two cards which we will be making
at my April Card Buffets.
I love tags, thanks to my Opa and Dad, and I’ll tell you all about that another day. These tags I cut on my Cricut machine using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. Cricut machines are so much fun for crafting. They cut the best shapes, as these tags, the rose, which I rolled with a quilling tool and is held together with Liquid Glass and the leaves are all cut with my Cricut Explore Air machine and Close To My Heart cartridges. These are available now in Australia by hosting a party with me and with sales of over $400 you are eligible to purchase your own Cricut Machine with a bonus Flower Market digital cartridge. Email me at
if your interested in getting your own Cricut Explore Air machine.
Both these cards are made with the Hello Lovely Collection which is about to be retired at the end of this month.
My ‘Bunch Of Flower’ card uses the Corner Rounder and the main design was cut with the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. It’s tied together with the Fern Ribbon from the Enchantment Ribbon Pack. Close To My Heart has a fabulous range of ribbons to match perfectly with the gorgeous papers in their collection and you can see them all at
look under Shop and Embellishments.
Don’t forget, the products in this Seasonal Expression will be retiring
at the end of this month.
Hope you make the time to create something beautiful for your mum this May.
It’s been a wonderful Easter with an abundance of loved family time and being together at this blessed time of the year.
My Easter page is just right for recording all those special memories.
I used this gorgeous sheet from the Dreamin’ Big Paper Pack as my background with White Daisy and Pixie Cardstock on my page and I snuck the border from the Hello Lovely Paper Pack. The cute chicks (in Canary and Goldrush Cardstock) and Happy Easter title (in White Daisy Cardstock) were cut using the Cricut Flower Market Cartridge. I hand cut my banner embellishment in the top right corner and the sun is cut from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge. After such a full weekend with loved ones I’ll definitely have to make a couple extra pages for all the fun photos taken!
I hope you enjoyed a blessed Easter with family and friends.
Easter Tags are fun to make to add to special gifts – gifts to share with loved ones at this blessed time of the year.
On my Colonial White Tags I stamped this cute bunny in Pixie ink and the Easter sentiment in Sweet Leaf ink.
Very quick and easy!
I popped Easter treats into clear cellophane bags and added my bunny tags with fun, bright ribbon.
Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter.
