CTMH New Colors Coming Soon!

Beginning September, Close to my Heart will release 8 new colors!! I had the chance to win two colors in advance and I played with them today making my own background and texture paper with two of the new colors - Pear and Smoothie. The colors I "peared" them with are desert sand and creme brulee. LOVING the way it all turned out!!

New Storage...

I am getting four of the little carry all bags that will each have a saying on it: Stamp Shark, Card Shark, Photo Shark, and Ink Shark. Then they'll fit into the square utility tote. I'm loving the way I can organize my scrapbooking stuff with Thirty-One.

Photo Box

This box from CTMH has so many great uses. Not only can you store photos in it, but it could also hold recipe cards. I purchased mine intending to organize my photos, but after seeing how fast and easy it was to make this box tonight, I can see myself making more and more for lots of different things. This paper is part of the Zippadee packet in the current Idea Book.

Recent Projects

I've been trying to play catch up around here and re-manage my time to get caught up on cards and pages I want to finish. The splendor packet of paper has been one of my faves in this current catalog. I wasn't even excited at all about the Passages collection but it's the theme of my upcoming team meeting and I was able to get it in a hostess collection so I decided to give this a whirl. I don't ordinarily like working with paper that looks this masculine but as a result, I never have handmade cards to give to men. So I'm really liking it as it turns out. I'm a little unhappy with the balance of the card. I may move the circles up and to the left a little to make it less heavy in the bottom right side with the stamp I used. We shall see!

Hoping to post a lot more as I get more organized and trim out some of the excess headaches going on in life recently. Trying to make more time for things I enjoy....
