Cape May Crop

I had such a wonderful time scrapbooking with my convention buddy & fellow Close To My Heart consultant, Judy, in beautiful Cape May at the Crop Classix crop. It was great to meet some new friends and share ideas throughout the weekend. In particular, I wanted to share some of the beautiful cards made by one of our scrapping friends, Janice Corrado. She was very humble and insisted that these were 'nothing special' since they were mostly "scrap lifted", but I beg to disagree since each one was personalized with her own style and artistic touches. They were simply gorgeous. As usual, photos do not do them justice, but I hope they provide you with some ideas and inspiration. I know they did for me! Thanks for allowing me to share these, Janice. They're wonderful!

Retiring Stamp Sets

I wasn't sure if I would get to checking on retiring stamp sets before the end of the month, but I'm glad I did! There are quite a few TERRIFIC ones that won't be available after Jan 31st. Oh no!!
I've attached a link for each one so you can easily see a picture of the set. I've also put MY FAVORITES in capitals, as well as making a couple of notes for ones that I think might be interesting for you. I hope this helps! :)

CTMH Spotlights Customer Creations!

How fun! Jeanette Lynton (CTMH founder) has decided to include customer art in her 'Spotlight On Art' blog feature. Each week Jeanette will feature a piece of artwork - - either from the CTMH design team, a consultant or CTMH customer. This gives YOU a chance to be a scrapbooking Rock Star.
Click here to visit Jeanette's blog for more details. Jeanette has also included some great tips on photographing your artwork. Be sure to check it out!


If your artwork is selected, you'll also receive a free exclusive gift. Awesome! Even if you're not interested in submitting your art (but I hope you will!), it will be fun and inspiring to see how other people are using the CTMH materials and techniques to create their own original projects.
I know I'm going to enjoy this new feature and I'm sure you will, too!
