Close To My Heart

Recently I joined Close To My Heart as a consultant as I have been going to a monthly club and really enjoying myself there. There are many items in their current catalog that I find to be of the utmost quality and I wanted to share some of them with you.

First up, I really love the album labels. Even though I have albums in various colors and sizes I still couldn't seem to find the one I want when I was looking for it. With these nifty labels, I can now easily browse for the album I want and so can my friends and family should they feel like taking a look.

Next, I really love the ink. Not that I am a super-stamper or anything, but I love to ink the edges of my pages or embellies for added dimension and this ink is so perfect. I love the colors that match all the papers and the packaging with the easy-to-read labels. The storage tower makes my ink easy to store and I got it for a steal when it was my turn to hostess our group!

I also love to use the Sponge Daubers and have one for each ink color. I keep these in the tray on the top of the tower. You can see there is also room for the markers.

I would also like to share with you a few of the pages we've done at our club meetings.

The above page was made with the Miracle papers, Canvas Buttons and The Delight Stamp Set. My scan did not come out quite right on this page, unfortunately.

The Relax page was created with the Wings paper, Mini Medly Black Accents, Wings Assortment Ribbons,  and the Dreams Come True stamp set.

Oliva paper collection, Foundry Flourishes and Mocha Opaques complete the page above.

And just for fun, here are two more pages I made last year from beautiful Close To My Heart papers and stamp sets.

If you would like to make any of these pages or purchase any of the supplies I've mentioned here, go to my link or click on the shopping cart above right. I'll be starting a monthly club soon and welcome new members, whether locally or online!

Such a beautiful work. Just love your lo's.
How are you doing down there? It's so terrible with this cathastrof that has come over you. Just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you.
Lots of love, Elzie
