Are you organized?

Happy Friday!!!!!

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!
Do you have craft supplies scattered all over your house?  Do you find that you purchase duplicates of certain things because you can not find them?  Close To my Heart introduced a wonderful new organization system back in August when the Autumn/Winter Idea Book came out.  I absoutely LOVE these boxes and foam inserts!  They are perfect for housing all your stamping and scrapping supplies but are also fabulous for organizing other supplies and items, as well.  I recently purchased the medium organizers for my daughters to put all their American Girl doll accessories in.  They had so much fun organizing all their miniature funness and love having everything in one spot that is easy to pick and go play whenever and where ever!

Take a peek at the video to see more!

And don;t forget that Sunday is the last day to purchase the September Stamp of the Month and the NAtional Stamping Month Exclusive Stamp Sets...for just $5.00 each with a qualifying order!

Studio J Express Collections

Happy Friday!

Today I am sharing a video with you about the Studio J Express Collections that made their debut in August.  Have you tried Studio J yet?  I was thrilled when my BFF FINALLY tried Studio J.  She is in LOVE!  She had lost interest in scrapbooking with paper, adhesives, stickease, etc.  She went to my website and started playing with Studio J and fell in love.  She has created over 10 layouts in the past 3 days.  She is hooked and her love for scrapbooking and preserving memories has blossomed again.

Take a peek at the video below and then hop on over to my website to play today!  It is all free.  You only pay for what you purchase!

I hope you will make a layout today!

Make it a wonderful weekend!

Spanning the Space

Today I am sharing another fun technique video that highlights the wonderful Close To My heart Acrylic stamps.  CTMH was the first company to come out with Acrylic stamps and they are, in my opinion, far more superior than any other acrylic stamps in the industry.

The video below will teach you how easy it is to stamp on a variety of surfaces and shapes using the CTMH stamps.  I absolutely LOVE the stamp set highlighted in the video.  I think it is one of my all-time favorites!

post issues...

If you have not already noticed, I am having issues posting videos on this blog.  What I want to post is not actually being posted-something different is and then it is posted multiple times.  I do apologize for this and I want you to know that I am working on getting it fixed.

Thanks, in advance, for your patience!

Clearly The Best, Bend It, Curve It, Stamp It!

Happy Thursday!

It is almost the weekend!!!!  And rain is predicted here in the Charleston area.  Normally I look forward to sunny skies on the weekends but I am actually looking forward to a rainy weekend.  "Why?" you ask?  Because one of my favorite things to do is stamp and create in my stamp room while I hear the rain come down on the roof!  And after viewing the video I am sharing with you today-I am excited to try some new techniques with my stamps...simply by bending and curving them!

I hope you enjoy the video below as much as I did!  I LOVE the artwork that is shared!
