And the Winner Is...

Good Morning crafty ones! What a busy week I have had: prepping all of our new goodies, hosted another fun All Day Crop, celebrated my hubby's 50th birthday and of course all the kiddo responsibilities and those of my full time regular job.

I am almost officially ready to kick off the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book, but first there is a pending Giveaway winner to announce...

The winner of this cute stamp set....


Congrats!  Your stamp is will be in the mail shortly!

Tonight I am having some "new to me" crafty ladies over to chat, share and make something fun, and I decided to share with them one of my all time favorite quick and useful projects, the Cricut Artiste Gift Card Holder!

This cute gift card holder is cut at 5" and you can fit (2) to a page!  So if you ever wonder what to do with some of your leftover stash, this is a great option!

The paper used is from the Ivy Lane collection, which will be retiring at the end of the month! There are still lots of fabulous items retiring, so be sure to check out the picture list here to make sure you do not miss out on any of your favorites!

Post here and share your favorite retiring product!

Can't Wait to SHOW You!

It am giddy with delight and so excited that the date is almost here to share with you our new Close to My Heart Annual Inspirations Idea Book! 

It has so many wonderful and diverse products and will keep us busy for hours on end. This Saturday is my next ALL DAY CROP and as a treat, I will be sharing this new catalog with my loyal customers and attendees! I also wanted to share with you two great projects that I will be offering throughout the season for GATHERINGS! 

Most people at gatherings still want to create something, which of course, does not surprise me. But I wanted to find a way to offer affordable projects that even the beginner crafter can enjoy and all will leave feeling quite accomplished!

So here it is - Creative Insider. You will have a choice of project, either a (10) card class for $15, a (2) page layout for $15 or a single card for Free.

And here is the layout option:

Glad to be back to the Blogosphere!

Hello Crafty ones! After a year long hiatus from blogging, but certainly not from crafting, I am glad to be back with you in this forum! Please check regularly as I will be posting often and sharing some crafty fun, giveaways, recipes, and pure nonsense! Don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY at the END OF THIS POST! 

So I just came back from Close to My Heart's Annual Convention in Anaheim, California and boy, was it ever a blast! All the new tools, papers, colors and collections will keep us busy for an entire year for sure, but the experience of spending time with my team and other fellow CTMH sisters cannot be beat.
Memories by Design Team 

We had some really great creative sessions, like this cute card set featuring a new paper collection called Confetti...

And of course, Close to My Heart unveiled our new Annual Inspirations catalog, a STUNNING, 193-page book which launches on AUGUST 1st!
