Olivia's Beautiful Banner!

I have been such a busy bee this week getting ready to vend and at my first scrapbook event; Crazy for Croppin' Spring Getaway 2011 in Leominster, Ma.  So, if you're around pop in and visit!! I will be there tomorrow night through Sunday.  I have put together two small create and take workshops as well as a whole bunch of artwork to share with hopes to inspire some new friends!  I am so excited to share this banner that I FINALLY made for Olivia's room!  I have had the banner and paper since the new catalog came out.  I am so happy with the final product and if you can believe it, it looks even cuter in person!  The Sophia paper pack from Close to My Heart couldn't match Olivia's room any better, I think they designed it just for her! Haha!  If you love it and need to have one of your very own contact me!  I would love to show you how to make one or I can make you a custom one for your little one!

Hope for Japan Fundraiser!

I just thought that I would post again to show you the beautiful artwork that Close to My Heart has come up with using the gorgeous Hope for Japan stamp set.  I can't wait to get my hot little hands on this set to play and create some of my own artwork.  From now until April 30, when you purchase the exclusive Hope for Japan A-size stamp set (A1118) for only $5, Close To My Heart will donate 100% of the profits to the American Red Cross efforts in Japan.  Please remember, that I do not receive commission on this stamp set and am just excited to promote this wonderful fundraiser!  You can order the stamp set here or contact me at for more information or to order.  There is no limit to how many you can order, so feel free to collect orders from your family & friends to save on shipping. Every little bit of hope we contribute will help those in need.

Sweet Sophia

This post is going to be short and sweet but it's been a while since I have shared some artwork with you!  So here are two layouts that I created at my crop last weekend.  The layouts below are of my gorgeous little SEVEN (I can't believe almost eight!!) month old daughter using one of my favorite new paper packs, Sophia. 

The title is stamped using the new Bohemian stamp set and that adorable rosette border is a part of the pink designer ribbon assortment.

I embellished this page using paper strips, a layered flower using Heartfelt Treasures stamp set, button, and bitty sparkles and accordian paper flowers

Stay tuned because I am creating a workshop for the Crazy for Croppin' event using these papers and another one using Lucky!  Come visit me at the crop!

Hope for Japan Fundraiser

I must start off by saying that I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing company!  With all devastation and sadness caused by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Jeanette Lynton, the CEO of Close to My Heart has created a special stamp set fundraiser.  ALL of the proceeds for this fundraiser will go to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund! 

Starting today through April 30th, to help you can purchase this gorgeous stamp set for only $5 (normally retails for $7.95) and like I said, 100% of the profit will go to the American Red Cross to benefit relief efforts in Japan!!!  Not only will you get this awesome stamp set but you will be helping in a BIG way! It's a win-win! I will not receive any commission on this set and am just so excited to promote this wonderful charity!

Like Jeanette Lynton said; "If we all do a little, together we can do a lot. Let’s show our support and together, provide real HOPE for Japan!"

Best Stamps on the Block Baby!

Ok, so yes I may be biased but CTMH does in fact have the best stamps around!!  There are so many things I love about the My Acrylix Stamps...just to name a few; I can see exactly where I am stamping and how much ink is on the stamp, they are easy to store and great quality so they won't rip or tear.  I have rubbermaid boxes full of rubber stamps that I just had to have but never used for fear of stamping crooked or a partial image and ruining my artwork. 

To prove that CTMH does have the best stamps on the block you must read on for the March campaign! For the month of March only, if you purchase $25 in stamp sets (before shipping and tax) you will receive an acrylic block FREE.  You will have your choice from two of our most versatile acrylic block sizes: the 3" x 3" block or the 2.5" x 6". How cool is that!?!  Contact me for more details  This offer is also valid when shopping on my website.  Before you check out, you will be prompted to add the block to your shopping cart.
