Birthday Card

Here is a birthday card I put together for my daughter to give to one of her friends.  Being 14 can be tough, and when all you want to do is stand out from the crowd it helps to have a mom who can ‘bling out’ anything!  My daughter loves to craft with me, but she has been terribly busy as of late with school and her horseback riding so I had to do this one solo.


I used the ‘Wings’ paper pack from CTMH.  What 14 year old girl these days doesn’t like butterflies and green? I wanted to do a more sophisticated look for a young lady, but keep it hip and fun.

I also have a habit (good, bad or indifferent!) of decorating the envelopes as well.  it takes an extra 5 minutes, but I think it makes it eve more special for the recipient.

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.
