July Kit of the Month

Long, lazy afternoons, picnics at the park, a glass of sweet tea, and very little crafting time – that’s how most of our summer days are spent.   We take lots of pictures, but have minuscule amount of time to create a way to record those memories.  When my kids were younger, I often turned to scrapbook kits as a way to save time (and conserve energy) because most of my days were spent keeping seven or more children from causing mayhem in the neighborhood.  That is why I now create these kits for each of you.  I want you to be able to have a simple way to record your story with uncomplicated, painless, ready-to-assemble kits that are easily modifiable to the photos you have.

CentralParkKOTM_SummerPicnicLayout.jpg

My July Kit of the Month was created to record your memories of those summer days spent picnicking at the park. This layout allows room for three 3″x 4″ photos and three 4″ x 4″ photos, but can easily be modified to hold 4″ x 6″ photos instead.  I have designed this layout to hold even more photos by using our 4″ x 12″ Memory Protector. This “half-page” insert holds four additional photos and fits directly between the two pages, aligning perfectly with the background.

You can order this July Summer Picnic Kit of the Month or the Workshop Guide in my online store.  The Workshop Guide includes a supply list, cutting guide, assembly instructions, full-color photos and a Cricut Design Space File™ with custom designed images using our Close to My Heart Cricut® collections.

If you enjoy my kits, why not subscribe to the Kit of the Month club and have one of my kits delivered directly to your door each month. Yearly subscribers pay only $10.00* per kit and receive additional perks each month. This month, they will have the option to add one of the 4″ x 12″ Memory Protectors to their kit.

Well, my friends, I pray your sweet tea is always ice cold, your porch is always welcoming, and your days are full of memories.  I can’t wait to see what you create this summer.

December is Delightful

This time of year becomes busy for most of us.  We spend our days counting down until Christmas, reviewing all of our lists, and filling up our calendars, yet, we forget to take a time to relax.  This year, I encourage you to make December delightful by taking time to rest and create.  Start by making an amazing gift with the Through the Year Calendar Kit.

1712-cc-fb-cover

The Through the Year Calendar kit includes all of the supplies needed to create a beautiful calendar that you can use for yourself or give as a gift.  I love that this is a 12″ calendar because when the year is over, I plan on disassembling it and creating a delightful scrapbook full of the year’s memories.  On December 16th, I am offering a FREE Calendar workshop where you can come, spend some creative time with friends, and make this calendar.

I have two other workshops where you can come and enjoy some creative fun.  Learn Cricut® Design Space as you create a Wintry Scrapbook or create a sophisticated Family Layout and three Thank You cards.  Bring a friend to either workshop and receive a FREE Petite Perks Stamp set.

Don’t have time to come any of the December Workshops? You can still order the kits and sneak away for a little creative time to make any of the cards, scrapbook pages, or home decor projects that I have available in my online store. Make December even more delightful by giving yourself  an early Christmas gift of my Kit of the Month club. Treat yourself to a ready-to-assemble Scrapbook layout kit each month.

Not only can December be delightful, but Close to My Heart has made it “punny” with our A Little Bit of Pun stamp of the month.  Visit the “Promotions” tab on my website to learn how you can get this set for only $5.00. I will be posting ideas through the month using this stamp set, so make sure to “Follow” my blog, sign-up for emails, or visit often.

I hope that you take a little time to make December more delightful as you make something new.  I can’t wait to see what you create!
