Woo Hoo, more free stuff!!!

Well, as you may have guessed from my lack of posting and little pic a few posts back, I just got back from one awesome vacation to Disneyland with my hubby and 3 adorable little boys. I'm now ready for my next vacation ;) We didn't take a shuttle once, and boy did we walk a lot. Anyway, more on that later. I want to share with you the super crazy and super generous special from Close to My Herat this month. With a $100 order, not only will you get the super cute thank you stamp set ($22.95 value) for free, but also you get to choose any A-D stamp set for free too. That's ANY in the idea book!!! I have my own little specials going on to, just email me to hear more about those: createdtocreateit@myctmh.com

Gotta get me some free stuff!!

So, I just read on Facebook that there's a little contest to win $50 worth of goodies with Close to My heart. All you have to do to enter is post a tid bit on your blog about what you fav product of theirs is.
As much as I adore nearly every paper pack they come out with and the super cute embellishments that coordinate with everything, it's got to be hands down their acrylic stamps. I've bought off brand acrylic stamps before, but they just don't come close to the quality of Close To My Heart's. I'm so proud to be an independent consultant for a company that prides itself on high quality products that will last.

Mistletoe Card - home for the holidays

After making my little Christmas album with this stamp set, I decided to make some matching cards to go with the workshop. Here's the first one I've made using the B&T paper from the Mistletoe Level 1 pack.

Mistletoe mini album

Wow, I can't believe I'm posting again already. Anyway, hubby had the day off yesterday and the day before I'd worked really hard around my house in prepartion of my folks coming to visit once we return from Disneyland. So, in light of that, I thought yesterday that I had deserved a day of crafting. Hubby being the awesome guy he is, helped out with the kiddos and I got this little album made. It's using Close To My Heart's Mistletoe level 1 paper pack. Just click on my title and you'll see where you can purchase it, or contact me about purchasing a kit to make your own mini album.

Magnifique Christmas card

Here is a card I whipped up the other day while watching Iron Man 2. It's inspired by a card made by fellow consultant Leana Ott. I used the Magnifique paper pack by Close to My Heart. If you like the paper too, you can purchase it at my website here http://createdtocreateit.myctmh.com
Here is Leana's card:

Animal Cookie Baby album

Sadly the paper pack used for this album is now retired. It's CTMH animal cookies, probably my all time fav for making baby albums. Anyhoo, I got the inspiration from fellow CTMH consultant Vicki Wizniuk on her Miracle album. Click here to see http://wizardshangout.blogspot.com/2010/03/sneaky-type-peek-at-new-miracle-kit.html
isn't her album adorable.?I highly recommend following her blog. I've never met her, but she sure is an inspiration to me with her artwork. Seriously talented lady. Anyway, here is my version.

Summer Fun...

This Summer so far has been soooooooooo fun for my boys, Jackson (3), Dominick (1) & Jonas (4mth). We've been to England to visit my parents and family. Of course the boys were totally spoiled and got a lot of quality time in with Grandma and Grandad. We brought our niece Rachel with us to help out on the very long flight. We visited Edinburgh, London and so many fun places. I'll post a few picks in the upcoming weeks.
Here's just a few cute pictures of Jacky and Nicky playing in the front yard and one at Grandma and Grandad's house in "Ingel-and" as my 3yr old would say it.

My adventure begins...

I'll start my blog off by telling you all how much I love being a mother and wife. However, I have another great love and that is scrapbooking and card making. I hope to post here frequently to share my creations with you and the ups and downs of life.

Over the years I've used numerous different brands of crafting supplies, but have found myself right back where I started, and that is with the wonderful company of Close to My Heart. I have been an independent consultant of Close to My Heart for a while, but today I've decided to give it a shot at making it a business or at least to make more of an effort to share what I love about them with my friends, family and all those that come in and out of my life. There are numerous links on my blog here that will lead you to my personal shopping website where you can browse or simply just check out the Close to My heart Idea book which also doubles as a catalog.

Look forward to being able to share and glean from all you crafty gals out there.
Have an ab-fab-tabulous day :0)
