Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Happy Thanksgiving!
I want to wish y'all a very wonderful holiday! I hope you are surrounded by those you love!

I created this All Sorts Mini Album for my parents. It is filled with fun photos we took together while they were down here visiting. I used the Twitterpated Paper Pack and a variety of accessories. All products came from Close To My Heart which you can order right from my website (amy.myctmh.com). The All Sorts Mini album makes wonderful gifts for every theme, event, holiday, etc. And they are oh so fun to put together!

December Scrapbook Club

Sorry I have not posted in a few days. I have actually been trying to be creative in my new "happy place." I am so excited about the layouts my December Scrapbook Club members will be creating. I will be sharing all the details very soon about the December Kit and the add-on options but I did want to share two of the layouts with you now.
I used the Heartfelt Die-Cuts on one of the layouts. I actually used both the "Wonder" HeartFelt die-cuts (item #Z1210) and the "Whimsy" HeartFelt die cuts (#Z1145). They are so much fun to create with! I have one other laoyut I am finishing up as we speak. I will post that one tomorrow.

If you would like to join my scrapbook club or try one class to see if it is somehting you would like to join please contact me. I have club members who are local and a handful that participate via mail. I'd love to have you join in on the fun!

My Happy Place Complete!

Here are some photos of my finished "happy place." I hope you enjoy! This is a photo of my mom and I. As I mentioned, my parents were a huge help in this whole project. I could not have done it without them! My mom was able to actually take a class in the room while she was visiting. I wish she lived closer so she could take lots of my classes! My parents will be back in January to baby sit our three children while Stan and I travel to New Zealand with all the other incentive trip earners. While they are here my mom is going to make table skirts for my computer table to hide all the stuff under the table! She might make curtains for the windows, too! Oh Boy!

Work in Progress!

As promised I am sharing more photos of the progression of my new scrapbook room. These photos show the room once it was painted this pretty buttercup color. Tomorrow I will share the actual finished room! Enjoy and thanks for letting me share this transformation with y'all! This is my daugther, Molly saying, "What a mess!"

Thank you Chris!

It's me again-this is my 2nd post of the day. I neglected to thank my dear friend, Chris in the first post. Chris came with me to the Crop last weekend. My assisant, Kim had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. I called Chris and she was delighted to come help me. THANK YOU CHRIS!!!! I truly appreicated it. Your company meant the world to me!


Chris was also the gal who inspired me to re-do my scrapbook room. We were talking one day after a class she took and one thing led to another and the next thing I knew, we were busy rearranging and then I got it stuck in my head that I wanted my room painted a different color.

My scrapbook room is actually the living and dining room in our house. We do not have living or dining room furniture and once my business started to gow (about 1 year after moving down here) I convinced Stan to let me make the living and dining room my scrapbook room-don't I have the best hubby in the whole wide world?!!!!! THANK YOU STAN!

My parents came down for a visit October 22nd and just left last Saturday, Nov.7th. We spent the first week of their visit moving back into my new "happy place." A friend of ours painted the room and Stan and my dad helped. My room is HEAVEN!!!!! I love it! If you are local you need to stop over and see it-better yet, sign up for a class so you can create in it. It is WONDERFUL!

I am sharing some photos of the whole process of how my new happy place came to be. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see more photos!

Thank You Columbia!


What fun I had in Columbia this past weekend. I enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends! Thank you to all those who visited my booth and shared their stories with me. I look forward to seeing you at future crops! Here is a picture of one of the "Create & Take projects I offered at my booth this past weekend. It is a mini 4 x 6 album using Close To My Heart's exclusive Flip Flap Memory Protectors (#Z4114). You get 15 in a package for just $3.95! We also used the Jingle Creative Basics (#X5808), Holday Trinkets Stamp Set (#D1366) and the Chocolate Large Alphabet set (#E1010). We used the Tulip Ink Pad (#Z2166) and the B-lack Ink Pad (#Z2105), as well as some Prisma Glitter(#Z134) and the large White Daisy Bigger brads from the Basic Assortment (#Z1218).

The other Create & Take Project was this fun paper wallet.

It was created using the Grace Level 2 paper pack (#X7117B) and the Many Thanks Stamp Set (#D1371) and honey Ink and Barn Red Ink (#Z2161) and (#Z2104). I taught the "stamp rolling" technique using the leaf image. I love how this came out. It really brings the leaf to life!
As you can see from the 2nd photo, you can add photos to your paper wallet and/or journaling. In the birthday theme wallet I added all photos. I hope this photo will give you an idea of how the paper wallet looks once it is filled with photos and memories!

november Stamp of the Month-Around the Block

Here are some cards I received in a recent card swap using the November Stamp of the Month; Around the Block (item #D1377) and the Sweet Home Paper Pack (item #X7116B). I fell in love with this stamp set when I saw it in the Idea Book but then I fell even more in love with it once I started playing with it! It has so many different uses and it is such fun to just build all different styles of houses using the many images in the set. Some of my fellow CTMH consultants/friends have really gotten creative with this set and created gingerbread houses and lobster houses and churches! Fun Stuff!

Lastly, my parents have been in town visiting for the past 10 days. they are here until Friday and then will go back home. This was the first time I have seen them since last Christmas, thus, I have not been putting in the work hours I usually do. I apologize if I am behind on anything but I promise I will be back to work full time next week. I will be out of town working a Crop in Columbia Friday-Sunday but then will get back at it next Monday morning. thank you, in advance for your patience!
