July Monthly Group Pages

Here are the pages my groups will be making this month!  I LOVE them!  They are using our Magical paper pack.  This is a great paper pack for all those Disney pictures...but it doesn't have to be ONLY for Disney!  You can use them for anything (but you might want to take the Mickey head off the 2nd layout...LOL)  I will also be making a 4th of July layout using this paper stay tuned for that!

You can add our Complements to these layouts and make the more Disney...or not...this is what I LOVE about Close to my Heart's products.  They are so versatile.  

If you would like to join us for my July groups...make sure you check out the Upcoming Events tab here on my blog!

4th of July Banner

Want a QUICK and easy way to show your pride for this 4th of July? I LOVE this took me about 15 minutes to make. I used the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy Circuit Cartridge to cut the banner and stars...then I cut 1/2" pieces of white scraps. Attached some white twine and DONE! So easy!

Now it's time for you to create your banner for your 4th of July parties!

Everyday Life Album meets June Stamp of the Month

Here are some samples that I made using our Magical Picture My Life cards and adding in Close to my Heart's June Stamp of the month! If you are traveling this summer...or in the past, you NEED this stamp set! It is awesome! 

I put these cards in our Page Protectors and in one of our Everyday Life Albums (Z3208 $10.95). It is a 9 x 8 - 3 ring album that is PERFECT for road trip memories. I can see having the kids do one of these too! This is a gift for a fellow traveler. Can't wait to give it to them!

One in a Melon Stamp set

Can you tell I just LOVE this One in a Melon stamp set!! LOL LOVE IT!
But, what I wanted to show you with these cards is, how you can add a bit of cardstock to change the look of cards.

These are the cards Close to my Heart made using the Calypso card workshop. But I changed them up a bit.

So the the first card, the watermelon one, I added the Cotton Candy cardstock to the top. That is all. I forgot to take a picture prior to putting the Cotton Candy cs on, but you get the idea. Then the 2nd one, the yellow pineapple card...the first one is the one Close to my Heart made (now they are using what is in the paper pack, I added things that were NOT in the paper pack...and you can do...I bet you have a few left overs!) I added Pear Cardstock and shortened the dovetailed piece. Then on the last card in that series, I flipped the pattern paper and used the black side. Easy!

Then the 3rd card...the "enjoy the things" card...the first one is what they used, and the next one is me adding Cotton Candy cardstock and I also added a pineapple from the One in a Melon set. It is amazing how different they look by adding some scraps!

You need this stamp set and paper pack don't you! LOL Contact me or go to my website ( to order yours!
