Fun and Productive

I was thinking to myself the other day..."Chris...(that's what I go by during internal conversations) you really should keep a few 'all occasion' cards on hand. Target can be a hot mess, and CVS doesn't have a very good selection..." And that's what prompted me to create my very own "Card Emergency Kit".

What the heck in the world would you keep in such a kit one might ask? Well, there is a "love" card, a Hello card, a Christmas Card, a Halloween card, a birthday card, a general "thinking of you" card, a thank you card, and a get well soon card.

Then I asked myself..."Where are you going to keep these cards so you can get to them when you need them?" And then the idea of a pretty box popped to mind.

So off I went to my CTMH stash, and produced this in no time flat. I had such a great time, and happen to think it is a very good thing for every household to have on hand.

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.
