Julep: Colour Of The Year

With the new release of our main catalogue comes a new colour of the year – drum roll please 🥁

  1. This gorgeous shade of green, called ‘Julep’, is Close To My Hearts colour of the year!
    It all begins with an Exclusive Julep Stamp Pad with a matching re-inker. The two tone Julep Cardstock with its white core is so sweet and to add that pizazz to your paper crafting projects we have the shimmery Julep Glitter Paper. Embellish your projects with the Julep Glitter Gems and the ever shining Julep Sequins AND look at this, Close To My Heart has made us a Julep Shimmer Brush (LOVE) you can wrap it all up with the softest Julep Velvet Ribbon. 

    I’ll be offering a special bundle with a collection of the Julep colour of the year products with a bonus 10 FREE Julep Cardstock sheets just for you and stay tuned for sweet as projects showcasing these Julep products.

    Happy days.

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.
