Personal Photo Journal/Yearbook


I am excited to offer you a very fun, easy and VALUABLE experience that you (and your loved ones) will treasure for many years to come.
In this age where everyone is filling their phones up with photos, text messages and snap chat posts, NOW is the time to get those memories off phones and document them in a hands-on tangible keepsake before they are lost FOREVER.

I am here to help!  Please let me offer my services to you in creating YOUR PERSONAL YEARBOOK.  I will provide you with a selection of supplies each time we meet and guide participants in creating a one page layout (sometimes a 2-page layout)  using the product in your kit.  Each project will also have an option to purchase a “BETTER” or “BEST” kit.  So you can make your one-page stories as simple as you please OR step them up by adding various optional products.  
At each session I will:
 *demonstrate a new technique/tool/idea and then the remaining time together will be spent working on your own personal stories.  
*set up an embellishment and “add-on” product buffet that you can purchase a-la-cart product from to enhance your pages, if you wish.
*offer my help to those who need guidance as participants tell their stories through this creative process.  
You can add more than just photos to your Personal Yearbook
*tickets stubs *cards *report cards *ribbons *certificates earned *medals

I will supply:
  *use of my stamp sets *ink pads *cricuit machine & cartridges, 

Ideas of what to document:
*All About Me Page*Rush Events*Fall Activities*Field Trips*Sporting Events*Dances/Formals*Dorm Room*Campus*Friends*Family*Your City/Town*Hobbies
*Favorites: food, color, books, movies, snacks…

The Basic Kit for each session will cost about $3.00
Deluxe Kits will be available to those wanting to add more to their yearbook.
These kits will consist of the Basic Kit Items, as well as, some more product.  This kit will be in the $7-$10 range
The Ultimate Kit will consist of some higher products (Ex: organizers, tools, etc).

There is a Start-Up Fee of $35.00

*This will cover:
 6 x 8 Everyday Life Binder
(you can choose a black/white stripe or a bashful (blush) pink.  Seagrass Green (mint green) is available only while supplies last.

Exciting Happenings in September!


It's September 1st and that calls for a celebration!  The Close To My Herat Holiday Expressions Idea Book went live this morning!   This 68-page publication is full with fabulous new stamp sets perfect for the fall and winter holidays, every day moments and celebrations galore.  The new paper designs are tremendously trendy to spotlight your  treasured photographs AND for creating those special cards for those close to your heart, not to mention also being perfect for all your paper crafting projects.  The new accessories will totally take all your projects to the next level!  If you do not have copies of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book and/or the holiday Expressions Idea book please let me know.  The Idea books are just $5.00 (you are required to pay the postage cost if I have to mail the books to you) but I will apply a $5 discount to all those who place a mimimim $25 order.  

Several years ago CTMH declared September NATIONAL STAMPING MONTH.  To celebrate, they have come out with an innovative card kit available this month only.  

The "From The Heart Card Kit" contains materials for creating 12 interactive cards, including foil-stampeded card bases and an exclusive My Acrylic Stamp Set.  Yhe set is designed to make it easy to create beautiful, rich stamped artwork using three layers of stamp images and thoughtful sentiments.  The card kit also includes envelopes and step-by-step instructions and is available at a 20% discount off the retail price!  Brighten someone's day with a hand-stamped card From the Heart.  The retail value is $43.90 but you only pay $34.90.  You can also buy additional card bases and envelopes to make even more cards ($13.95).  Or you can also buy the From The Heart stamp set separately for $29.95.

The stamp of the month for September is called "Feel So Blessed."  It is a set of 26 images that you will use all year long for so many different occasions and themes.  

My goal this year is to meet and share my love of CTMH will as many individuals possible.  I am currently scheduling private parties for everyone who would like to invite family and friends for a morning, afternoon or evening out.  These private parties can be held right here at my home in my studio, if you would like-no cleaning for you and ample space for all your guests to come play and create a fun simple project.  I have a special gift for all those who decide to help me and host a party.  This is my way of saying THANK YOU for helping me to spread the CTMH love , as well as, to help pay for my children's tuitions.  

I am working on a handful of fun classes revolving around fall, Halloween, Christmas and holidays.  My monthly scrapbook club will kick off this month using the "JACK" Workshop Your Way kit, followed by each of the 4 new kits in the Holiday Expressions.  There is still time to join the club and take advantage of the club member perks.  The classes are also available to those not in the club and those who can not attend the actual classes by purchasing a Kit To Go and putting it together in the comfort of your own home.  If you are interested please let me know!

My monthly card club will be starting up again.  Each month we will create 5 different cards.  The $15 class fee covers all products needed.  All you need to bring is your favorite adhesives.  If you place a minimum $35 order at the monthly class the $15 registration fee will be waived.  

I am also working on some specialty classes, as well!  Details will be coming soon!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
