Fall is in the Air! It's a great time to preserve those memories!

I love the cool crisp air, beautiful leaves on the trees, and the first snow of the year on top of our mountain range... Fall is such a beautiful time of year and it also means the hot Summer heat is gone for a few more months!!

For the month of Sept. I created some fun layouts to celebrate a wide variety of adventures!
This first layout I origanally had planned to title it for the fair. Then several ideas come to me so I left the title off so it could be titled when the photos go on the page. Ideas I thought of were Fair, Rodeo, Circus, Carnival to name a few, I would Love to hear of your ideas!!

This layout is also a great layout for many types of photos! if you think the flowers are to girly for your liking you can always leave them off and have the fun hexagons!!
Who doesn't like a road trip!! We love to go see different parts of the world and have been to many different states! We went to Cheyenne for a couple of weeks before Draven started school So I am sure I will have to add flip flaps to my layout!

Let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to order a set of these for your Fall photos!!

Celebrate Summer with the bright fun pages using Calypso!!

I love the bright cheerful colors in the paper packet Calypso!! I have created a variety of fun pages to celebrate Summer!!

The first layout I completed and then took my Grandson to the zoo to take some photos to put on the layout and there were no Flamingos at the zoo! So I will title it differently and show case some different photos on this fun layout!!
 Who doesn't like to cool of with a Popsicle on a hot summers day? We Love popsicles and ice cream around our house!!
and then take a dip in the pool, lake or ocean to enjoy the sun!! The cuts are from  several different cartridges and well as the fun Kate files...

This last layout I left untitled until I put photos on it... It has so many possibilities for a fun Summer, Boy, or just some fun selfies!!

You can order Calypso here until the end of Aug. to create some fun layouts for your Summer photos!!

Close to my Heart the perfect opportunity to make a little extra $$ while doing what you Love :)

3 Reasons Why You Should Become a Consultant Right Now!


Being a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant has a lot of perks: You get to make money doing what you love, plan your work schedule however you’d like, meet women with similar interests, and save big on products with your Consultant discount, just to name a few. But during the month of July, there are three MORE reasons to become a Consultant: Adventure, Whimsy, and Enchantment!
What are we talking about? Our brand new Fundamentals paper collections, which feature 24 double-sided sheets of beautiful patterned paper. And we’ve also created Complements (stickers and die-cuts) that coordinate with each Fundamentals collection that have three themes—everyday moments, baby, and school.
If you join as a Consultant in July, not only will you get to preview these products before everyone else (they’re not available to the public until August 1!), and not only will you get to order them before anyone else, but you will get one paper collection and its coordinating Complements for FREE! You can choose any of these three collections you want!
Did we mention that it only costs $75 USD to join, and you get $50 in Select Product Credit, which means you basically join for $25? Yeah, it’s a great deal and super low risk!
Because seeing is sometimes believing, we want to give you an exclusive look at the beautiful layouts you can create with these new Fundamentals collections and their coordinating Complements. Ready to be amazed?
3 reasons you should become a Close To My Heart Consultant right now! #ctmh #closetomyheart #beyourownboss #startyourownbusiness #scrapbooking #crafting
First up is our Adventure Fundamentals and Good Life Complements. There’s no stamping on this layout—all the embellishments you see—including those flashy gold die-cuts—come with the Good Life Complements, which are designed for everyday scrapbooking.
3 reasons you should become a Close To My Heart Consultant right now! #ctmh #closetomyheart #beyourownboss #startyourownbusiness #scrapbooking #crafting
Here are our Whimsy Fundamentals and the Baby Girl Complements. If you choose to go with the Whimsy papers, you could also choose Baby Boy Complements instead, which feature silver foil instead of gold. And don’t worry, the papers can just as easily be used to create a layout featuring pale blues and greens instead of pinks!

Here’s a re-cap on why now is the best time to join Close To My Heart: If you become a Consultant during the month of July, not only can you order all of these new collections and see all of our other new products before anyone else, but you’ll also get one Fundamentals paper collection and its coordinating Complements for FREE.

May your month be Magical!!

I love the name of the paper "Magical" it just seems to make me happy and full of anticipation when I hear that name!!  This set of layouts will be perfect for any Amusement park, Carnival, Fair memories.  If you are interested in purchasing a kit for your photos please contact me dbrinkerhoff@ubtanet.com!!
I think it is so crazy how different the page looks just by turning the photos mattes. On any page you can turn the mattes to fit your photos, but I put the page together and posted to show you the layout is the same the photo mattes are just turned on some of the photos!!  I lightly tack my photo mattes down and that way if I need to change one to a horizontal or vertical matte when I am adding my photos I can easily lift it and turn it to meet my needs!!
 It seems I always need 1 more photo matte! this layout gives you option of placing the PML card as it is a 4x6 rectangle or cutting the title out to make room for 1 photo by using one PML as a red matte and cutting the other one apart and placing it at the bottom of the page...
I just can't say how I love Close to my Heart papers and how versatile they are making them!! This pack can be used for so many fun occasions!! make sure  to order yours package of Magical today it is only available through the month of July!!!




A fun switch up to a regular card base!! Fold the front base in half back over the top of its self and then adhere your papers to that half of the card front... Then your sentiment is only attached to that piece as well...  The photos show you can watercolor to add a little color to the card or leave it plain and simple!


I love the dimension on this card...  I actually popped the Star overlay to give add a fun and different look to the card!!  A versatile card for many occasions!
