My Crush Constant Campaign Blog hop

Welcome to 
Close To My Heart's 
June Special of the Month

My Crush Albums

If you are coming from Brenda's blog on the My Crush blog hop, you are on the right track.  This month we are featuring various projects using the My Crush albums.  There are so many different ways to use these wonderful albums.  Beside using the albums as designed, you can take the pages out of the book to use on traditional scrapbook pages, to make cards or any other paper project you might think of.  So hop on board and see the creative ideas of over 30 consultants.

For my project, I've decided to start the garden journal I've been wanting to do for the past several years.  My intent is journal what I've done so far in my perennial garden and yard this year and and continue throughout the summer and fall with notes, thoughts, and pictures.  My first few pages include some of my favorite pictures from last fall as well as pictures from this spring.

Materials used in this project are:
My Crush Bluebird Book
My Crush Favorites Assortment
Canary, Smoothie, Slate, and Flaxen cardstock
Oceanside Sequins
Coral Reef Sequins
The buttons and brads used are retired CTMH products.

This link will take you to my website to see samples of the various My Crush Books, assortments, and coordinating stamps sets available.

Don't forget to take advantage of the special this month -- buy your favorite My Crush Album, the matching assortment package, and get the coordinating stamp set FREE. ($9.95 value).  I will add a free workshop for anyone who lives in my area that orders this special and would like to start an album or journal project of your own.   

Your next stop on the hop is Michelle's blog.  Enjoy!

If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete blog list on Melinda's blog.
