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.

January Fun Day in Brisbane.

I had a super day sharing the ‘Some Kind Of Wonderful’ collection with the consultants in Brisbane last weekend. Senior Director Shirley Dionysius from Queensland organised this amazing day where all Close To My Heart consultants were welcomed to attend…and attend they did!


With over 100 girls and 1 guy coming along to learn new ideas and tips to use
in their own personal Close To My Heart business’s.
Look at the bright, vibrant colours below… As you can imagine there were lots of fun pages, cards and other creations made on the day.

Workshops Your Way® Some Kinda Wonderful
Scrapbooking Kit (G1120)


They were kept busy all day with projects I created for them. I love that they created these projects to suit their workshops and classes. I also loved that they took the ideas and created them to suit their own personal albums eg: they didn’t have ‘girly’ photos so, they changed up the pages to suit ‘boy’ photos.

It was a lot of fun hanging out with the girls. Some of them I have known for years, it was so good to see them again. It was also fun meeting the brand new girls who recently joined  with Close To My Heart…one thing ALL the new girls said was ‘I wish I’d joined up sooner’ reason being, as they all love scrapbooking and cardmaking and LOVE that they can get their products at a discount now they joined up!


Lots of ideas on show!


Lots of laughs!


Lots of girls (and Bruce)!
