Save 35% on pocket cards

It's a Pocket Card Celebration!

This month we're celebrating our 35-year milestone with special, limited-time savings on our Picture My Life pocket cards! These packs coordinate perfectly with our paper packets, taking the paper designs in fun new directions.

See the whole selection >>

These savings are only available through March 31, while supplies last! 

Scrapbooking technique ideas



I love to learn new techniques for my layouts, 

don't you?



Once again, I am blown away with what I learn from watching Jana take a layout from the Craft with Heart Kit and step it up a notch. Even if you don't have the kit she is demonstrating, she has so many wonderful tips to share. If you are interested in the Craft with Heart subscription kits, you can find them here.
 
Join me in watching Jana create on this video.

                          

The original layout in the subscription kit looks like this -- which is wonderful in itself, but I just love to see what you can do if you'd like to make it your own.

March SOTM Blog Hop - This Happened


  
Welcome!  

Glad you could join us today.  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas.  
If you are coming from Lauren's blog you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Brenda's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop. If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set, This Happened, featuring 9 great stamps is great for mini-albums, planners, and scrapbook pages, although I suspect some consultants in this creative group will come up with many other ways to use it.  That's why I love the blog hops!

  This stamp set is available only through the month of March.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.  You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here.


For my project, I used this stamp set with papers from the I Heart Us paper pack.


Here's a closer look at some of the stamping.



Thanks for stopping by today.  

Join me as we hop on to see the creative ideas using this stamp set on 

Be sure to visit the other consultants who have joined in on this
 blog hop for lots of inspiration.

If for some reason, you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating consultants on Melinda's blog to get back on track.
