Close To My Heart Craft with Heart January 2019 - Wild Child Layout

All I can say, is WOW!

I just love watching Jana work through a layout.  I learn so much each time watching and listening to her brainstorm as she works.

Today, Jana is working with a page from the January Craft With Heart 2019 Kit - Something Fierce.  Take a few minutes to just sit back, enjoy and be inspired!




You can find out more about the Craft with Heart subscription program here.

Or you can find the Something Fierce Paper Pack and other parts of that paper suite here.


Happy Scrapping!

them in with ShinHan Markers.
