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 Workshop

Each month I create kits and guides using our delightful paper packs, and since next month’s paper pack has not yet been revealed, I am giving you just a few sneak peeks of my scrapbook kits and guides for the month of September.

 

 

My Boutique Creative Club Scrapbook Workshop uses our New Boutique papers from the Holiday Expressions catalog to create three layouts.  The Boutique paper pack is full of texture and color, making it one that was a joy to create with. 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.

You’ve Got Class School Album

How many of you have a stack of school photos with great intentions and hopes to scrapbook them? Well, my friends, here is an A+ project just for you. Close to My Heart has created a way for you to preserve your child’s K–12 school progress with the You’ve Got Class Kit. This unique project even includes special folders made for preserving standout schoolwork and other memorabilia. What a great way to preserve the highlights from each school year in one scrapbook!

YouveGotClass-misscarriescreations

 

Our You’ve Got Class special features an exclusive paper packet, coordinating cardstock, and stamp set.  Each one is school themed and designed to create some extraordinary paper crafting projects.

We also have a special You’ve Got Class workshop kit that you can purchase at a 25% discount.  This kit includes the patterned paper, cardstock, True Fit folios, and embellishments needed to create fourteen 12″ x 12″ single pages, one title page and a page for each grade from kindergarten through twelfth grade.  We are bringing back True Fit™ folios just for this special workshop. These 12″ x 12″ White Daisy file folders allow you to store all your school-related memorabilia and fit inside your Memory Protectors™ in your album.

This kit would pair perfectly with our Pocket Memory Protectors™. You could easily add a few of these after each main page, add the year’s photos, a few embellishments and PML cards, and you have an album full of memories.

So, now that Close to My Heart has provided the kit, I am going to provide the time. I have designed four workshops just for you to be able to complete this entire album.  Each workshop will provide you with a pre-cut kit, stamps & inks, and time set aside that allows you to complete a few pages for your child’s album.   I can’t wait to see what you create!

Dog Days of Summer Layout

Now that my kids are grown, most of the photos on my phone are of my sweet little fur baby.  Yes, I am one of “those” dog mom’s who spoils her fuzz ball with all kinds of treats and toys.  To be honest, the first time I saw the Central Park Paper Pack, I knew I had to create a page just for my pup. This “Dog Days of Summer” layout is the final layout in my Central Park Workshop series.

CentralParkCC_DogDaysLayout

If you missed the previous layouts, you can view the “Life is a Beautiful Adventure” and “Sun Kissed” layouts in my previous blog posts. All three of my Central Park layouts can be created using a half-pack of Central Park Paper, the Coordinating Cardstock, Central Park Sequins, and Cricut® die-cuts from our various collections.  You can even individualize each layout by adding some Central Park Alphabet stickers and Flip-Flaps.

 

 

You can purchase the Full Workshop Guide in my online store, or purchase just the single Layout Guides you wish to create. Each guide includes a supply list, full-color cutting guide, Cricut Design Space™ file, detailed photos, layout grid, and assembly instructions.  You are also welcome to purchase the kits if you would like. Each kit comes pre-cut and ready-to-assemble.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

Sun Kissed Layout

I truly enjoy creating scrapbook kits and guides using our delightful patterned papers.  This month, I have been working on a workshop kit using the Central Park products.  I hope you enjoyed the “Life is a Beautiful Adventure” layout I created last week, because, if you did, I know you will enjoy this one.

CentralParkCC_SunKissedLayout

This layout is titled “Sun Kissed” and is designed for you to record those summery, “sun kissed” memories.  When you are born a carrot-top, you are often kissed by the sun (in more ways than you wish), so I created this layout for those “I really should have used sunscreen” moments.  As I assembled this layout, I thought it would also make the perfect backdrop for some beach baby photos. You know, the ones where they are running around in their new swimsuit, belly pooched out, diaper sagging, and all red cheeks.

If you have a few treasured “Sun Kissed” memories that need scrapbooked, you can purchase this Scrapbook Kit or the Cutting Guide from my online store. Each Cutting Guide comes with a supply list, cutting guide, full-color photos, Design Space™ file, and assembly instructions.  I have one more layout to showcase in the Central Park series.  Make sure to keep an eye out for it later this week. It’s sure to make you “dog-gone” crazy for this paper pack. I can’t wait to see what you create!

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!
