Flock Together

Hello to you!

April’s Stamp Of The Month is all about being with the ones you love and it really has ‘them Partridge family feels’ – we all know …together is the best place to be!

Flock Card Pink
I made my card with the gorgeous Sugar Rush Paper Pack, Complements & embellishments.
(the Sugar Rush Collection will be retiring 30th April, get yours now before it’s gone forever!)
I added a strip of ribbon from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack and Pink Twine from our Adventure Ribbon Pack. I was so happy how it all came together.
Total inspiration for this card came from US Consultant Senior Director – Brenda Rose.

Dreamin’ Big this March.

This month we will be creating projects with a brand new collection by Close To My Heart called Dreamin’ Big. The papers are adorned with soft Lemon and Glacier tones along with beautiful Junipers, Slate and Poppy to make the background & textured papers pop!

My first creation using the Dreamin’ Big collection was my Operation Smile donation towards an auction held here in South Australia at one of our Consultant Fun Days. I love creating and this project was definitely a favourite and knowing it was going towards a good cause was my top priority!


 It was great to see the girls bid on this item at the auction knowing it would help, along with the other items on offer, as Close To My Heart partners with Operation Smile.
Operation Smile is a non-profit organisation that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates in children. Operation Smile’s mission is to give every child access to safe, quality surgical care and a future filled with hope.

dreamin-big-op-smile-workshopThis is the 10 x pack Dreamin’ Big Papercrafting Workshop I created for this special Consultant Fun Day event. And, it was well received.
Congrats to Consultant Val Jackson who was top bidder! Val and her customers will have total fun creating these gorgeous boxes.

Hello Lovely hand crafted tags.

There is nothing more rewarding than making something special for special people in your life. I had the chance to do just that for a special girlfriend’s Soirée.


My gorgeous crafted tags where made with the Hello Lovely collection.
The sweet colours along with the blossomed background and textured papers match the theme perfectly. The tags were cut on the Cricut using our Artiste Collection.

Create something special for someone special in your life today.
Have a happy day.
