A Burst of Sunshine Video Tutorial

Kristine and Monica show us how to make a card using scraps of paper!  It's nice to know I'm not the only one who keeps small pieces of leftovers! ;)

The stamped saying Monica used is from All the Details (D1555) stamp set.  The set can be found on page 101 of the Fall/Winter 2013 Idea Book.  The sunburst base shape can also be found on that carrier sheet.  Remember, if there is a red outline around an image, there is a corresponding Cricut cut.  And if you look below the stamp set name, the cartridge is mentioned.

Fall into CTMH's Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Today's video highlights two keys from the Artbooking cartridge.  Jill also mentions looking beyond the grouping of the images.  For instance, as she points out, the arrow overlay and photo mat (containing an arrow) would be great for Valentine's day.  But it would also be great for any occasion that needs highlighting -- prom, summer, a special award or accomplishment.  While we're at it, the tree can be used in a family tree page or a generational picture.  It could symbolize Spring cut in greens and vibrant colors.

So let your imagination go and enjoy where it takes you.  Make sure you jot down notes, though, so you'll be able to remember later!  ;)

Remarkable Wreath Workshop Breakdown

It's been awhile since the workshop and I thought I'd share with you the cards in more detail.


With Spring comes new growth and color.  Chantilly paper was perfect for this season and is accented with Sweet Leaf and Buttercup cardstock.  The Wreath was stamped with Sweet Leaf ink (leaves) and Cotton Candy (flowers and bow).  The card may look familiar if you look in the Wishes card program book on page 27 -- I've modified Lucky Layers.  Sparkles add a touch of whimsy.


The leaves have fallen off but there are plenty of flowers still around in summer.  This card features Sarita paper packet and accenting colors of Gypsy and Twilight.  The bow is Cotton Candy.  Make it from Your Heart Vol. 2 is where this pattern comes from and can be found as pattern #24.  Sparkles are added to, well, make it sparkle!


Huntington paper packet brings out the colors of Autumn wonderfully.  The leaves of this wreath were made by sponge daubing three colors randomly -- Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta, and Barn Red.  Another Make it from Your Heart Vol. 2 pattern here -- #28 -- along with opals gives the card just the right look.  All papers were sponged with Barn Red ink.


Finally there is Winter.  Frosted paper packet and color combinations make this a soothingly warm card.  Notice the background circles?  Those were made from the new Stitch Guide (Z1852)!  I love that you can make circles, stars, chevrons, and more with this tool.  And where did this pattern come from?  Take a look at page 89 in the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book and you will see a similar card.  I took that Make it from Your Heart Vol. 1 pattern #20 card and made it my own!

Lindsey Creates Studio J Layouts

Remember I told you Lindsey and I biked across California in the Spring?  Lindsey captured some of her memories with Studio J.  I only helped her with technique, and access to the pictures.  She did the rest!

These are the first two days of riding.  Not too shabby for an 11 year old!

Holiday Craft Workshop Projects

We are set for October 5th, 2013 from 12 to 5pm to make some Holiday Crafts and Gifts.  Four consultants have been hard at work creating kits for you to purchase and assemble (or you can take them home).

Here are 6 completed projects of mine.  More of mine will be there too.  : )
As you can see, I'm not too into Christmas yet.  You see a Hanukkah card because Hanukkah starts November 27th this year.  Impress your Jewish friends with this card.

The purse next to Hanukkah card houses a small pack of gum -- a great gift!  Actually, all of these items are perfect to give away.  There are even two Halloween cards for those who love that holiday.  The rectangle with the flower on top is a tissue holder and in the upper right you'll see the candle that goes with the "votive holder" (without the bottom).

All of the projects are priced from $1 to $5 and is a pay-as-you-go event.  You can come anytime and stay for as long as you want between 12 and 5pm.  The address is 13612 Poinsettia Dr, Poway 92064.

I hope to see you in 5 days with your scissors, adhesives (liquid glue and tape runner would be good to bring), and cash!!

Which Cricut Cartridge is the Best?

The answer to that question is, "It's a three way tie!".  Seriously though, it does depend on what you want from the cartridge.  In this video, Kristine  talks about the focus of each of Close to my Heart's Cricut cartridges.

Remember that each cartridge comes with 700 images, three coordinating D-sized stamp sets, and three sheets of dimensional elements.

Let me know which one is your favorite!

  • Come and go anytime between noon and 5pm
  • Pay for the projects you want
  • Get gift ideas
  • Get gift ideas and samples/gifts completed before the onslaught of the holidays
  • Time enough to order and make more gifts from home
  • Projects from 4 consultants
  • Prizes will be given out
The first raffle ticket you can earn is to RSVP to me (or leave a comment) by October 4th that you are coming.  The second raffle ticket you can earn is to bring along a friend (one I haven't met yet) with you.  Get two bonus tickets by RSVPing by Sept. 27th!

More details to follow soon.  :)

September's Remarkable Wreath Card Workshop

The kids are back in school which means there's some much needed "me" time.  Workshop dates are Monday September 16th and Wednesday September 18th from 7 to 9pm at my house.  Please RSVP by September 8th if you'd like a kit.

When Remarkable Wreath first came out over a year ago, I wanted to do this type of workshop.  I didn't do it right away though, and I almost lost my chance because the stamps were set to be retired.  I jumped for joy when I saw them in this Fall/Winter idea book!  Thus, procrastinating is not always a good thing.

Come make these cards with me.  You'll make two of each design.  The class fee of $15 will  include everything to complete the project and a set of sponge daubers to take home.

Big Picture Pajama Party Tonight!!

Don't forget this afternoon is the afternoon to watch how Artbooking Cricut Cartridge is going to make scrapbooking so much fun and easy!

Tonight at 5pm at Big Picture Classes!

Studio J Layout Revisited

A few days ago I showed you my Disney Cruise layout, and I mentioned I added some elements to the layouts.  This made it a hybrid layout.

Today I wanted to mention a few other things I did to the layout.  The first thing to mention is the paper packet used for the layout is Surf's Up.  The default colors of Surf's Up are Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Ponderosa Pine, Sorbet, Surf's Up Gold, Surf's Up Teal, and White Daisy.  These were not going to work with Disney Colors!  Tommy paper packet colors -- Cranberry, Desert Sand, Honey, and Outdoor Denim -- were a much better choice.  However, I didn't want the nautical patterns of Tommy, and I liked the paper from Surf's Up better.  Surf's Up will fit the vacation pictures much better because there are more pictures then just the ocean.

I loaded the Surf's Up paper for my pattern of choice.  Problem solved by changing the colors of the paper!
The patterned blue paper used to be shades of teal.  I wanted this paper to represent water, but, as you can imagine, wouldn't go with my pictures as teal.  Similarly, I changed the color of the paper to the left (Surf's Up Gold previously) Honey, and to the right Outdoor Denim.  And finally, I added Desert Sand and Bamboo to the mix.

For the buttons, I made them a mix of colors because I wanted one more point of red on the page (triangles are pleasing to the eye and I had two chimney stacks in the picture).  The Cranberry button helps with the other dots of red.  But if I had all three buttons Cranberry, it would have been too overpowering.  That's why I changed the colors of the other two buttons.  The Honey one helped with the triangular look and the Outdoor just looked right.  Don't be afraid to experiment as you create!

Something else I'd like to point out is the stitching along the curves of the Outdoor Denim.  You can see it well in this picture -- look under "Destination".  Stitching can be added but doesn't have to be.

The flag cluster was added after I received my layout -- they are Tommy Assortment -- therefore I didn't have a choice of color, so my other color choices were based on that cluster (I knew I wanted to add the cluster while I was putting together the layout).

The final technique I wanted to share with you for this layout is with the under the flap picture.

The layout came with three photo wells at the bottom of the layout.  I wanted to showcase the interaction of the cousins with Grandma more, so I wanted a larger picture.  To achieve this, I dropped the same picture into both photo wells and enlarged them to the desired size.  Then, I moved the pictures in the wells so that they overlapped.  Whalaa -- you have one large picture!

The flaps (there are two 3"x3" ones) were added once I got the layout back.  Those pictures were slipped into the flaps which were then adhered to the layout.

Nice?  Nice!!

Studio J Layouts from Disney Cruise

I realize I haven't posted many layouts.  I do scrapbook!  Here is a layout that I created from our family cruise last year.

My in-laws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by taking the families on a Disney Cruise to Alaska!  Bummer for me, I had to go (lol)!!

The top picture is the left page of the two page spread.  The middle picture is the right page as you first view it.  The bottom picture is the right page with a flap revealed which includes my journaling and another picture.

This layout came from Studio J.  But I went a little beyond that.  On the title page, I added the accents from Tommy just above the "L" of Alaska.  I also added opaque pearls to the letter "L" and "A".  And I carried the pearls to the right page among the buttons (which are part of the Studio J layout).

You can see how beautiful the weather was.  It stayed beautiful for the whole week!

2013 CTMH Convention Roomie Gifts

I gave potted flowers for my roommate gifts this year.  I had been inspired by something similar when I was at a physical therapy appointment.

Okay, the coloring isn't the greatest because the paper I used was from Dream Pop.  Bright pinks and yellows!

Everything came from the Cricut cartridges Art Philosophy and Artiste.  The candies are Rolos, Hershey Milk Chocolate kisses, and Hershey Cookies 'n' Cream kisses.

There are two "types" of flowers.  The Kisses flowers are the same but with different paper.
It looks like I goofed and didn't write the cut sizes in my notes so I'm going to guess - you will want to verify for yourself though -- sorry about that!

Kiss flowers: from Art Philosophy
Inner flower: <flower1><shift> or Column 1 Row 1 (= C1R1) <shift> at 1.75" (pg 21)
Middle Flower: <flower7><shift> or C9R2 <shift> at 2" (pg 39)
Outer Flower: <flower6><shift> or C9R1 <shift> at 2.25" (pg 29)
Leaves: <leaf1><shift> or C2R5 <shift> at 3.5" (pg 62)

I colored skewers Juniper (leaves were cut from Juniper paper) and then glued the leaves around the skewer with liquid glass.  The flowers were glued together and then glued with liquid glass to the top of the skewer.  I held the skewer until set.  The following day I glue dotted the candy on.

Rolo flowers: from Art Philosophy
both are the same shape - <flower3><shift> or C7R4 <shift> at 1.5" and 2" (pg 57)
stem: <flower3><LAYER><shift> or C7R4 <layer><shift> at 3.5" (pg 57)

These skewers were colored Sweet Leaf to match the paper.  The flower and stem were glued on with liquid glass, and then the Rolos were added the next day.

Flower Pot: from Artiste
<f><3D Object> or C4R3<3D Object> at 6.25" (pg 54)

Other items:
I've already mentioned the skewers.  Mine were 8" long thaen cut in half.  Modify yours as you see fit.  I grabbed some florist green blocks that I cut down to size for the pot, then glued some brown crimped paper to the top of the block.  Insert skewers.

I don't recommend traveling with this project.  They weren't as pretty as pictured here, and were a little tattered.  I had taken them apart for the flight and assembled them at the hotel.  It wasn't my problem as to how my roomies got them home!  ;-)

Hook and Loop Dots

For the longest time I would buy hook and loop strips and cut them down to close the projects I wanted to be able to open and close.

I no longer have to do that with Close to my Heart's Hook and Loop Dots.  I also no longer have to clean the glue off of my scissors -- an added bonus!

Here's a quick video demonstration (and great scrapbooking idea) of the hook and loop.

Of course there are always other ways to place your dots.  At the end of the demonstration, Brian placed a dot on one side of the folder and eyeballed the placement of the second half.  Instead, place the second dot on TOP of the first such that the hook and loop are together.  Then close the folder and push to adhere the second dot to the proper position!  Quick and easy!  That's how projects should be!

Thank You, Benny

There comes a day in every dog owner's life for a tough decision.  Today, my sister had to make one -- the right one -- for her dog of 10+ years, Benny.

Give your dog, any pet... give your child(ren)... your spouse, significant other... your friend... a hug and tell them how much they mean to you.

Benny will live on with all of us, because we'll talk about him and his antics for many many years to come.

Thank you, Benny, for sharing your life with me.  :)

A Tool That Makes Stamps Clean

I don't know about you, but I like  my stamps clean every time I use them.  One of Close to my Heart's overlooked tool is the Stamp Scrubber.  In this video, see how easy it is to use it.

You can also spray the scrubber with the cleaner if you'd prefer that to spraying the stamp directly.  Another thing that isn't mentioned in the video is the size of the scrubber.  Did you see how small it is?!  I love the fact that it's compact size means I can pack more fun accessories when I pack to play with my friends. :-)

Using Punches and Cricut Cartridges for Impact

Get the most out of your stamped images by pairing them up with our punches and/or Cricut cartridges.  Watch this delightfully informative video on just that.  I know some of the information may not be useful anymore (Mother's Day has passed), but you can apply what you've learned to other events.

If you have any questions, please feel to ask!

Retiring Product for 2013

It's always a bitter sweet time for me when the retiring product list comes out.  My reaction usually involves several, "Nooo, they can't retire that!" and "that's a bummer".  At the same time I'm excited to see what new product I'll get to introduce to you.

The new Idea Book goes live August 1, 2013.  Product listed that hasn't been depleted beforehand will no longer be available.  What does that mean to you?  If you've been waiting to purchase something, now is the time to do it!! If you wait much longer, it might be gone forever.

June 2013 Card Organizer Workshop

Where do you store your cards?  If you answered "anywhere", and then hunt for them, you don't want to miss this month's workshop.  This month we'll be making an organizer that holds up to 6" x 6" cards.  The 5 dividers (birthday, thank you, celebrate, just because, and thinking of you) will also keep you organized so pulling a card will be a snap!  You will even want  this organizer if you *gasp* purchase cards.
Workshop dates are Tuesday June 18th and Wednesday June 19th, both from 7 to 9pm.  Cost for what you see is $17 (the box will have a white clasp).

Sign up by JUNE 7th with a commitment to come to the class or purchase the kit (if you can't attend.  If you are local, I will deliver your kit to you).  If you aren't local, you can still purchase a kit to make this awesome organizer, just contact me so I can get your kit to you.

It makes a great gift for your crafting friends!
