My Grateful Heart Scrapbook Kits & Guides

I really truly enjoyed creating layouts with the Grateful Heart papers.  These may not be your typical “Fall” layouts, but they reflect the types of photos my family has each fall and I can’t wait to record my memories on them.

 

My Grateful Heart Creative Club Scrapbook Workshop uses our New Grateful Heart products from the Holiday Expressions catalog to create three layouts.  Our Grateful Heart paper is so versatile, has a gorgeous color palette, and I only used a half of a pack for all three layouts. I am beyond excited about how each of these pages turned out. Each one is unique to the paper used, and are designed to display your photos and memories beautifully.GratefulHeartCC_ScrapbookLayouts-misscarriescreations

You can purchase these layout kits individually in my online store, or come one one of my Crafternoons and purchase any of my kits to create with me and a few friends.  Each scrapbook kit comes pre-cut and includes all the supplies needed to create each layout. All you need are photos, adhesive, scissors, and a journaling pen.

I will also have Workshop Guides available for purchase in my online store. Each Workshop Guide includes a supply list, cutting guide, Cricut Design Space™ file, full-color photos, layout grid, and detailed assembly directions. I do ask that if you are a consultant using these guides for you workshop, you do not share copies of the guides of the Design Space™ files without prior permission.

All of the HeARTfully Blessed Creations team members receive a substantial discount on all kits and guides, plus free online tutorials.  This is my way of saying Thank You for being a member of our team.  If you have considered becoming a Close to My Heart Consultant, I would love for you to be a member of this amazing group of ladies.

I will be creating many more projects throughout the month using these charming Grateful Heart products.  Make sure to visit me here or on any of my social media pages each week to see more creations.  You can also  join my VIP Facebook group  and see a few LIVE tutorials using our Close to My Heart products.  I can’t wait to see what you create with Boutique!

Boutique Scrapbook Kits

Have you noticed that there are SIX, yes, six Boutique Scrapbooking Workshops Your Way® scrapbook pages in the Holiday Expressions catalog? You may have noticed the change, or you may have been confused by it, but either way, it is something to get excited about.  This is a recent change that Close to My Heart has made to a few of our Workshops Your Way® kits and I am THRILLED about the change.

 

When you look on pages 28 & 29 of the new catalog, you will see both Boutique Workshops Your Way® kits.  On the left is the “Classic” set of scrapbook pages that you can create when you purchase the Boutique Workshops Your Way® Scrapbook Kit.

 

Aren’t they beautiful? I just ♥adore♥ our Boutique products. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these three layouts. They reflect our Classic designs and are great for recording your memories, BUT sometimes we all want just a little bit more.  That is why in this season’s catalog, Close to My Heart has created three additional Deluxe Kits.

 

These Deluxe Workshops Your Way® kits use Texture Paste, Stencils, and that glorious new Sugar Plum Shimmer Brush to add a slash of texture and shimmer to your pages. Depending on your style of scrapbooking, you can create the Classic, the Deluxe, or both sets of scrapbook pages to showcase your photos.

Each set of pages, Classic & Deluxe, do require a full Boutique Workshops Your Way® kit, so you will need to purchase two kits  if you are going to create all six pages.  Close to My Heart has made it easier for you to create the Deluxe pages by giving you a 10% discount on the Boutique Deluxe Bundle. This bundle contains everything you need to add amazing texture to enhance your pages with plenty left over for more projects.

 

I am so excited by the addition of the Deluxe kits and I know you will be, too.  If you are one who likes to add a little more punch to your pages, then these Deluxe Kits are designed for you, but if you prefer the more Classic look, then you aren’t left out. Close to My Heart has three amazingly designed pages just for you.  Which one will you choose? I can’t wait to see what you create!

August Kit of the Month

Each month I create simple, ready-to-assemble kits that are made just for you and delivered to your door.  Each one is designed to allow you to record your memories and are easily modifiable to the photos you have. For the month of August, I used our gorgeous Documented paper pack along with some Cricut®  die cuts to make this “Be Your Own Sunshine” layout.

DocumentedAugKOTM_BeSunshineLayout.jpg

My August Kit of the Month layout allows room for two 3″x 4″ photos, one 4″ x 4″ photo, and two 4″ x 6″ photos.  I designed this layout to allow you to have one large focal photo on the right page. You can easily exchange this 4″x 6″ photo for a special 5″ x 7″ and add more photos through the use of our Flip-Flaps.

You can order this August Be Your Own Sunshine Kit 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, you can 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.   I can’t wait to see what you create with this kit.

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.

Summer Time Crafting

Summer is just flying by and I seem to be adding more and more to my calendar.  As my son said, “My calendar is beginning to look like a Jackson Pollock painting”.  I am sure you understand exactly what I am talking about.  Unfortunately, for most of us, this means our crafting gets set aside for the summer causing the “miss my crafting blues” .  To prevent this, I have set up a few “Crafternoons” at the local library just for you.

RiskItMEME

On June 23rd and July 21st, you can come enjoy some time for yourself to catch-up on crafting, chat with other adults, and have a few hours where you are not saying “no you cannot have another snack”.  I will also be offering a few workshops those days which you are welcome to learn from, but the ultimate goal is for you to have a day of “craft happiness”.

 

Please make sure to RSVP for these events by sending me an email or leaving me a comment below.  Cost for each Crafternoon is $10.00 or FREE with a $30.00 order from my website. All proceeds from these events will benefit Operation Smile.

I hope to see you there!  Have an amazingly, blessed summer. I can’t wait to see what you create!

May Kit of the Month

Usually, I have this posted and ready for you to view by the 15th of each month, but my order for the new supplies took a little longer than expected and, when it did arrive, I had to sadly watch it sit unopened until I could escape life to play.  It was well worth the wait, because the May Kit of the month has turned out lovelier than expected.  This kit features our New Beautiful Friendship papers and is titled “Happy Place”.
