Scrapbooking Prep and Organization

One of the newest releases from Close To My Heart is "Workshops Your Way".  WOW!  These are packed full of the fun items that you need to complete three 2-page scrapbooking layouts, but it doesn't stop there.  There is enough extra paper and embellishments to make 9 cards and 2 Picture My Life Layouts.  However, it should be noted that these kits don't include stamps or page protectors.

Now with 6 different projects in one complete packet, you have to find a way to get them organized when you are cutting them apart.  This video will show you how I organized mine to get ready to put all these fabulous projects together.  Come back soon to see it all finished.  In the meantime, head over to my business page at Close To My Heart to get your own Workshops Your Way Kit by clicking here.

Planner Quick Tip - Bullet Journaling



So I needed to add something to my planner line-up for tasks that weren't getting done.  After a lot of research, I decided to come up with my own form of Bullet Journaling.  Now this is not done like the original Bullet Journaling, but is my own take on it.  Here are some quick snap shots.

Birthdays and Bowties

I finally took the time to pull out the latest cartridge from Close To My Heart.  I have to say, Artistry is pretty cool.  I can't wait to explore this fun cartridge more.  Now to really throw a twist into things, I used the La Vie En Rose paper packet to make a MASCULINE card.  Ready?


Surprise!  La Vie En Rose is more than just frilly girly paper.  There are some fabulous black and white prints and I'm loving it.  Of course, I had to finish off the inside too.  Isn't it fun?


Here's what I used:
Artristy Cricut Cartridge
La Vie En Rose paper packet
Lagoon paper packet
Black Exclusives Ink
Stamp set from the Artiste Bundle
