The Month of February is one crazy month for us! We have so many birthdays and we have many friends as well that celebrate a birthday this month! My Son's birthday was on the 4th along with my mother! It was a special day for us but an overwhelming special day for her! Then my oldest daughter, Kayla, will be 16 on February 13th! Wow 16!!! I don't know why time has to move so fast! My niece Allie is celebrating her birthday today! It also marks the anniversary of our sweet Granny's death. February is a month of many joyous and sad occasions for me!
This past year Max has become more fascinated with my Cakes that I bake. He is always helping in the kitchen and loves each cake I make! So this year I let him decide what theme and cake he would like for his special day! Spiderman was his first pick! So Spiderman it is!!!
I made a fast banner for him using my Art Philosophy Cartridge for my cricut! This cartridge has over 700 images and you would be amazed how many different ways to use each image. I needed to make Spiderman's head and immediately thought of the egg cut on the cartridge! Perfect! My loving Daughter Kayla has a talent with art! So I had her draw the face! She's so talented! Then we made little handle bags using my white daisy cardstock from CTMH for the gift bags!
It was a last minute decision to make all of it, and we did it 4 hours before the party! So anything is possible with your Cricut!! I love that machine!!!

Happy New Year!!! I am so excited for this year to start off great! Last year I had many ups and downs. I'm looking forward to living better and doing better in 2013! I plan on making more crafts and hopefully will start making something new every day! I started the New Year with making cute little hair bows for my Baby Girl, Ruby! Sadly she still hates them, but I can only wish one day soon she will love them!
New Year Resolutions?! I usually hate making new year resolutions because I never follow through with them! I would love to know how many people actually keep them! I want to make one that I know will help me this year! Focus on my business with Close To My Heart! This year I will make a monthly resolution and strive to do my best in sales! I will also make sure to get out more and focus on making new friends that love making crafts and those that love scrapbooking!
And what a great time to start! The new Spring/Summer Catalog is coming out next month and it is amazing! I couldn't stop saying WOW when I turned each page with amazement! So many beautiful colors and so many different ways to use their paper. It's not all about layouts anymore! Which I love because I adore making crafts with CTMH paper! The quality is perfect and I'm never disappointed!

I wanted to make an Advent Calendar this year but I didn't want to do the entire 25 days since the kids are still a little too young to understand and no patience! So I came up with my own 12 Day Countdown to Christmas Banner!
I researched many ideas on the Internet and found some real cute ones made out of toilet paper rolls. I was actually saving rolls to make a scrapbook but then decided I would attempt the banner. This is the link that gave me the inspiration for my Advent Calendar. I did several things different but overall I still was able to recycle and they are so strong. I know that once I pack this up after Christmas they will stay safe until next year!
The paper color is our Ruby collection, the decoration paper is made from our Pear and a Partridge packet. I cut up small ribbons from the burlap then added three dimensional elements for the numbers. The numbers are a bit hard to see so I may change that next year but for now I love it!
Add yummy candy and you're set!
I hope you love this as much as I do!
Merry Christmas to all!

I have only been an independent consultant for Close To My Heart since April and already I have learned so many new things! They are so great with teaching you their fun ways to make your scrapbook layouts look Fabulous! I am more of a home crafter and love to make things such as banners, coasters, and cards with our product. But recently I have been wanting to do more layouts because they are teaching me easy ways to complete a page! It is taking me a while to complete a page but I have put so much detail and attention into my work! It is very rewarding once you've completed your masterpiece!
I want to share with you my latest creation! I love the Stella Collection from Close To My Heart! I wish they would continue to sell this wonderful paper packet! It has so many different styles and so easy to love! I decided to try out our new ruler with the guide holes for stitching! I love it! It did take about an hour for my hands to master each stitch but I did finish! Other than the thread this layout has all Close To My Heart products! The ruler only costs $9.95 and is the best ruler I've ever owned!
The flowers are crafted by CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge for the Cricut! This is a must have for every
Now I have to decide which pictures to add to this lovely layout! This is the hard part for me! I always make layouts without any type of pictures in mind and have to come up with a photo shoot just so I can complete the page! Let me know what type of background would go good with this layout! Give me some ideas! I can always use them!!!

It's time to make some cards! This time of year is especially fun because who doesn't love to receive holiday cards! I started with Halloween! I love Close To My Heart's Moonlight paper packet! It has so many different ways to use it! I love the colors! I already need to order more because I've used it all up! This is one paper packet that I didn't hesitate to hoard! (All you scrapbookers know how that feels!)
The Cards below are made using older Close To My Heart Halloween paper that I actually was hoarding and decided to give it a new home! What do you Think?!!! I love Halloween!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
I am so excited that Halloween is almost here! I am however a little behind on the costumes for the kids. But I'm sure I'll get them soon enough! I love Halloween! You get to see so many creative ideas and eat yummy recipes! Halloween is a time for the kids to use their imaginations and become someone that they dream to be!
I have started using my imagination in decorating! I have made a banner for the occasion and some Halloween Cards too! I think every wall in the house will have handmade decoration by the time I'm done! I love my cricut and I love my Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge! It is a wonderful tool in decorating just about anything!
Such a beautiful Ballerina!
