My friend and fellow consultant Noreen Petty just had the chance to go on a fabulous adventure to Close to My Heart headquarters and have a crazy 3 minute shopping spree! I laughed so hard when I saw this video, especially when I saw how much she stuffed in her pants. Take a look and have some laughs and joy.

I love Close to My Heart and the fun contests they provide for us consultants.Remember the month is half-way through but there is still time to sign-up as a consultant and take advantage of the crazy deal of getting the consultant kit for only $49 PLUS you get a FREE Damask tote. See this post here for all the details.

So if you do the math, you get around $180 in products for only $49 (plus shipping and handling). My "Rockin with Paper & Scissors" Team is growing each month and is a great place to share ideas, get some inspiration, and gain some special friendships. If you are interested in learning more please email me and I would love to talk to you more about the great benefits of CTMH.

Clementine Kit of the Month

Our family just returned from a two week road trip to visit Washington DC and other various points of interest on the way and back. I am sure I will have lots more to share about our trip later!

 I know many of you have been waiting to see some artwork from the NEW Idea Book and also which kit my Cherish scrap classes will be ordering this month to create in September. The wait is finally over and I am in LOVE with this next kit called Clementine. I actually got to know this kit very well over the summer because it was the kit I was assigned to create with for my class I taught at the Close to My Heart convention. I was given 6 paper packs of Clementine, and some new accessories and was told the sky was the limit. So I lived and breathed Clementine for six weeks.

 The following photo is what the outside of my booth looked like--I had to create 4 display boards plus fill a table with 3D artwork. Of course the star of the whole convention was the newest Cricut cartridge called Artiste and I was able to focus on 4 different keys. I will share lots of my artwork in more detail along with some how-to videos over the next month. So keep checking my blog each day.

Here are the 3 layouts that I made using Clementine for my Cherish scrap groups and I used 3 of my layouts that I created for convention as inspiration.

Layout #1
Layout #2
Layout #3

The basic kit includes the following:
  • Clementine Level 2 paper pack--$9.95
  • Clementine Canvas Stickease--$4.95
  • Cottage Assortment--$5.95
  • 50" Burlap Ribbon
  • 2 Sheets Colonial White CS, 2 sheets Kraft CS--$2.25
  • Cutting diagram for all 3 layouts--FREE
  •  Total: $25.10 (plus shipping/handling and Tax)
Now if you really want the most bang for your buck you will want to purchase the Deluxe kit which includes everything in the Basic kit PLUS:
  • Clementine Stamp Set-$13.95
  •  Pearl Flourish--$4.95
  • 1 Sheet canvas alphabet--$3.48
  • Brown/Tan sparkles--$2.95
  • Total: $44.58 (savings of $5.85)
Some additional products you may want to add to your order, especially if you are not ordering the Deluxe kit are:
  •  Pearl Flourish (in deluxe)--$4.95
  • 1 Sheet canvas alphabet (in deluxe)--$3.48
  • Brown/Tan sparkles ( in deluxe)--$2.95
  • Saddle ink pad (used to distress)--$5.25
  • Twilight ink pad--$5.25

 Please contact me to place your kit order and you can either put your Clementine kit together on your own, or attend one of my 8 Cherish classes in September.

If interested please contact me at and we'll see which class might work in your schedule, or if you are long distance we can order you a kit and I'll email you the cutting guide so you can create them on your own.

Project Inspiration: Scroll Album and Advent Calendar

I am so in LOVE with Close to My Heart's newest Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea book and a whole NEW category that they have added to their product line are some beautiful Home Decor` projects.

I was able to make the eye-popping Scroll Album at convention this summer and it looks perfect on my mantel above my fireplace. I also have plans to make the adorable festive Advent calendar that has 25 drawers that are perfect for stashing some little treats or gifts each day. You can even type up an activity that you can do as a family each day as you lead up to Christmas.

Watch the following video for more info, then contact me at to order your own. Or want the workshops now, then head to my website and begin shopping right from your own home!
