Cherry-O Mate

I fell in love with the Cherry-O from CTMH. I have used it for just about everything! I covered a 12x12 box to store the stationary set and pens I made. I decorated little vases, and flameless candles. I even decorated a reed infuser that happened to be cherry scented, and wrapped the reeds around a bunch of cherries. OK, I'll admit, I may be slightly obsessed...but just a little. I have been dying to find some paper that went with the pics of the little girls back in January, and let me tell you, THIS. WAS. IT!! I have done a recipe box from this paper pack, made boxes to hold your Silly Bands, and it was the paper I chose to use to make my Convention Swap Cards. The possibilities are endless!

I will be holding a Cherry-O workshop later this month. But one more picture before I go.

Why I do what I do.

People often ask me once they find out that I love to craft and create, "What is the one project you are most proud of?" My answer is always the same, "My five kids!" They are the reason I have been scrapbooking for so many years. I want to be able to capture their childhood through pictures, and evoke emotion through the art of scrapbooking. I found a wonderful company, Close To My Heart (CTMH), that allows me to do just that. Their breathtaking line of paper packs with coordinating embellishments and stamp sets take the guess work out of scrapping, and they are a huge time saver. And let's be honest, when it's fun it's easier to get a project done. Once I discovered CTMH, I decided to become a consultant so that I am better equipped to share the joy I feel when preserving memories that will be passed on for generations to come.

Another benefit to using Close To My Heart products is the versatility they offer. Not only do you get to create and protect your precious memories by scrapbooking, but you can also use the paper packs and embellishments to create personalized and unique cards as well as sprucing up your home decor. I love having the ability to transform a simple photograph into a piece of art I am proud to display in my home or give as a gift to a special person.

It is not the amount of 'creative talent' but rather the level of interest and passion you possess that will determine what we are capable of accomplishing together. Let me show you how simple, quick and most importantly fun scrapbooking and paper crafting can be.
