Creating a Calendar - December 2017 (ft. Little Scraps of Heaven Designs)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Here it is... The final layout for the photo memory calendar. The file used for this layout is the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, December Calendar Friend; Santa Bag, Elf and Presents.

I hope you will take the time to put together a photo memory calendar for someone special. I have given you samples to work from, now take those photos and complete yours in time for a lovely gift at Christmas. When I determine who mine is for, I will create a title page and probably put something on the back page as well.

Stay tuned for a flip through video since I did not video the final three layouts.


Enjoy!

Creating a Calendar - October 2017 (ft. Little Scraps of Heaven Designs)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Work has been busy the past couple weeks, my apologies for being a little distracted. The spring months at the school where I teach has a lot going on, such as an auction, open house, worship night and my seniors' running their businesses. It is now spring break! Yes!

Here is the October Calendar Friend from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs; Ghost, Moon and Bats. There is also a witch's boot which I will be using on an upcoming scrapbook layout. I do not plan to post a process video for the last three calendar pages, but I will do a recap video once I have completed the project.


Enjoy!

Digital Image Project #4 - 2017 Mini Album Title Page, "Sitting Panda" (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Back again this evening to feature another digital image from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, the "Sitting Panda" cut/digital image. I will be working on a mini album soon which will cover a panda bear theme throughout. This title page is my first piece for the mini album.  Again, I have used Microsoft Word to create this page.


Enjoy!

Digital Image Project #3 - 2017 Easter Title Page, "Peep in a Truck" (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

One of two posts for this evening featuring some digital images I have recently used from the past FREEBIE files from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. This first post is an Easter title page using the "Peep in a Truck." Who loves Peeps as much as I do?! They have been a long time favorite of mine, although the excitement has somewhat worn off since they are now available for a lot of our holidays. Oh well! At least if I get a craving I can get them more often than in an Easter basket.

This is very simple as I am learning how to create with digital files. I am currently using Microsoft Windows since I do not know how else, or what else to use for my creations. Suggestions?? Please leave them in the comments. Digital newbie here....


Enjoy!

What Are Thin Cuts?

Hi Paper Crafters,

Sometimes as consultants we promote our products with the assumption that what we say is universal and everyone knows exactly what we are referring to... Do you know what a Thin Cut is?

Here is a video where I explain what a Thin Cut is, what designs Close To My Heart has currently and which ones have coordinating stamps sets. Hang in there to the end of the video where I will show you how to use the Thin Cuts in a die cutting machine, The Cuttlebug.

To order your Thin Cuts today, visit my CTMH Independent Consultant website.

12x12 Scrapbook Layout #9 - School Theme (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

As I was making the layout for this post, I was laughing as it is near the last months of school. This layout is for the beginning of school, lol. NO, I do not want to go back. Bring on spring break...

I just love the bookworm from this Little Scraps of Heaven Designs cut file, September Calendar Friend. I gave him center stage on my layout to emphasize his cuteness. I hope you enjoy him too and consider joining me in creating a monthly scrapbook, or a photo memory calendar.

Click below to see a process video of my process.



Enjoy!

Scrapbook Layout Flip Through - March 2017

Hi Paper Crafters,

I do not have another paper piecing project ready to go, so I decided to create a video flip through of my scrapbook layouts from November 2016 to now. It is so rewarding to take the time to look back and see the progress! Wow, I have made quite a few layouts in a few months time. Plus, I am three months away from completing my photo memory calendar. How are you doing on working through your paper crafts? Using your stash of crafting goodies?

Be sure to check out the Thin Cuts from Close To My Heart, CTMH typically does not have discounts for an entire month. The month of March you can purchase the thin cuts (die cuts) for 25% off. There are bundles available as well which include the coordinating stamp sets. You can find the list here.

Enjoy my flip through... Let me know if you have any ideas of what I should focus on after the calendar is completed.
