Shopping:  Did you know that you can shop from the comfort of your own home and have your items shipped right to your front door (or wherever your delivery driver leaves them)?  Did you know that my webpage (click the link to be taken to my webpage) has a Clearance and a Going Soon! section?  The deals on these two pages are updated frequently.  When you set up your account you’ll also get the chance to opt in for my monthly newsletter that highlights monthly specials.  Close to My Heart does not sell or share your e-mail address and has a secure check-out.  You’ll also find a link to my current online mystery hostess party – when you shop from there you’ll automatically get a chance to “win” the hostess benefits.  If you’re placing an order over $150 make sure you call me first and I’ll set up your own shopping link where you’ll earn Hostess Benefits all on your own.

Classes:  Don’t miss out on sharing some creative time in the Craft Coop.  I have monthly classes – normally the first Thursday and Second Tuesday of each month.  You’ll find all the details over on my Facebook Page under the Events Section.  Class size is limited to 6, you’ll learn new techniques, tips and tricks and go home with four cards all ready to go in the mail so make sure you get signed up!  I still have a couple of spaces in the evening class on June 6th – please RSVP today if you’ll be able to come.

Thanks for stopping by…if you have any questions about any of the monthly specials or would like to find out more about card-making or scrapbooking please leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you.


Jump Into June

I can’t believe that we are already entering the half year mark and the start of summer!  If your summer vacation includes plans for a road trip then you need to make sure you get your hands on June’s Stamp of the Month!

The Long Way Home is a super cute set of 15 stamps featuring road signs and modes of transportation – the car reminds me of my first car a 1962 Chevy Nova II.  Oh how I loved that car – it was older than me, but I have lots of fun memories bombing around town with girlfriends.  But I digress, The Long Way Home is only available during the month of June – make sure you get yours for as little as $5 with a qualifying order!

June also brings an exciting Flash Sale from Close to My Heart.  The first thing you need to do is head over to my business page and set up your online account.  Then visit my page on Friday for the “Flash Sale”


News flash! During the month of June, we’re offering great deals on bundles of discounted Close To My Heart products every weekend! Check back each Friday during June to find a new set of bundles. There will be lots to choose from at various discount levels and price points, but you’ll need to snatch them up quick, because they’re only available through the following Monday while supplies last!

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me or give me a call.

Thanks for stopping by…enjoy your June!

June is Jubilee Month on the Paper Trail

I’m a farm girl…wow, I never thought I’d hear those words roll off my tongue!

Welcome to the Paper Trail for the month of June where we are featuring the Jubilee papers.  If you’ve reached my blog from Amy’s Blog you are on the right path…if you’ve started here that is ok too, just follow the link at the end of the blog and you will sashay over to the next blog.  If you encounter a broken link you can always come back here where I have included a list of all the blogs at the bottom of this post.

 When I spotted the Jubilee papers in the catalog I was thrilled.  I could think of all kinds of things I wanted to use them for including some of my favorite pictures from around the farm (which I’ve ordered from Studio J, but didn’t allow enough time for shipping) which I put in this little chipboard photo album that was cut with the Cricut.

After finishing my Snap Happy mini album a couple of months ago and having the chance to browse through it and relive the special fun I had I decided to make it a priority to capture my memories in little albums.  Believe me I will not stop scrapbooking in my favorite 12 X 12 size – as a matter of fact I have another order of Jubilee paper on it’s way to complete some scrapbook pages of our multiple trips to the county fair.






 The stamp set that I used was an exclusive set that I received when I attended convention in Dallas a few years ago!  It was a fun set to finally get some ink on and fits my farm life perfectly.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your stop and now you can hop on over to Scrapstories where Connie has some great art waiting for you.

If you get lost along the way you can come back here where you can visit the blogs in order

I’d love to see how you use Jubilee!



Footloose in Hawaii

I’m sure you thought I must have got lost along my travels on the way to the Paper Trail Blog Hop, but honestly life just got in the way.  So if you’ve followed the link from Linda’s Paper Taylor you are on the right path…if you’re checking back for my post Mahalo!

I took the opportunity this month to play a little with Studio J.  My mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer May 17th  and I’m learning it’s easier to drag my laptop along rather than an entire crop bag full of photos, adhesive and paper the 120 miles to visit.   Sometimes the only flat surface I have is my lap and Studio J still gives me the creative outlet I need in these stressful times.

I’ll admit I have been a hold out in the digital scrapbooking world.  It’s not that I don’t LOVE Studio J, it’s just I didn’t think I’d get the same creative outlet.  I was wrong!  Studio J is going to afford me the opportunity to actually catch up.

Footloose was the perfect papers to use for pictures from our trip to Maui this spring.   I removed the ribbon, added extra buttons a pile of embellishments in the corner inserted my pictures and as the Count would say “a la peanut butter sandwhiches” and I was done!

Now, “hula” on over to Connie’s Scrap’s & Stories and see what she has to share!
