Just a Little ‘Favor’

This is a super quick project that is sure to brighten up any goodie bag!  I used a stamp from CTMH Boutique Borders for the background, and in the middle of my standard mailing address label I stamped the sentiment from a Stamp of the Month set that will be available later this year. After letting the ink dry (honestly all I did was put some wash from the washer into the dryer) all you have to do is peel and stick the label to a Hershey’s Nugget candy.

These I put together for my friend to pop into some goodie bags for a fundraising crop she is holding this weekend.  All told, to do 50 favors it took me almost 20 minutes (and yes that’s with the drying/laundry time).  And the great thing is that with so many stamps available from Close To My Heart, the theme possibilities are endless!

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.
