Postcard Perfect Workshops

To celebrate National Scrapbooking Month, Close to My Heart has created Postcard Perfect – a collection of bright, beachy products available exclusively during the month of May.  I will be hosting three workshops featuring this exclusive collection where you can come create some memorable scrapbook albums and cards.   This collection will be available for purchase on my website May 1st, OR order the papers, coordinating cardstock, or stamp set directly from me beginning April 15th. 

Since every vacation is “Postcard Perfect” and worthy of remembering, I am offering two album kits to showcase your family photos. Choose from the twenty-page Mini-Album featuring places for over forty photos or the full-size Cut-Above Kit with three coordinating layouts.  Each will be perfect for recording those “Postcard Perfect” memories. (The mini-album guide is available for sale in my online store for all my long-distance crafters.)


For all you card makers out there,  I have found an AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL card workshop that is  “Postcard Perfect”.  This card workshop was inspired by the talented Jacquie Paech, and each card has been designed beautifully for any occasion.  

Isn’t this a wonderful way to celebrate National Scrapbooking month?!  Remember, the Postcard Perfect products will be available for purchase on my website May 1st, but you can pre-order your products directly through me beginning April 15th.  

You must reserve your kit before May 10th. Don’t forget to share this event with your friends! Every friend who comes will earn you an additional entry into the drawing for some free Postcard Perfect products. **

I hope you can come to this workshop! It will defiantly be “Postcard Perfect”!

** Workshop must have 5 or more attendees in order for drawing to take place. The more people…the more drawings. 🙂


Relax with No Worries Layout

As you know, I enjoy each week’s Color My Heart Dare Challenge. They inspire me to try something new with a color palette I would not have likely chosen.  This week, we were challenged to use only Cashmere, Glacier, Lagoon, Sapphire, Whisper and White Daisy inks with the No Worries paper pack, so I chose to make a scrapbook layout for some fun summer vacation photos.


This layout is one that we will be making in my upcoming No Worries Creative Club Workshop where you will learn how to use our inks to enhance your scrapbook pages. On this layout, I used our White Daisy Exclusive Ink Pad to add foam caps to the waves.  It really added dimension to the layout.  You can find a list of the remaining supplies I used to create this scrapbook page at the bottom of this post. Please feel free to ask questions about the layout, my upcoming workshop, and the products used on this layout. 

If you are one of my long-distance followers, you can purchase the Workshop Guide which includes a link to the Cricut Design Space file so that you can recreate this layout using our inks and sponging techniques.
