Monogram Stamps - A Personal Touch

I was so excited when Close To My Heart introduced these new Monogram stamps.  They are so elegant looking, versatile, and just $2.95.  Take a look at this video to learn more.



Here are some cards that I have made for my Club Members with their monograms.


What is a Club Member you ask?
 
 
Well it's someone who places a monthly order of at least $25.  It can be any product of their choosing OR the product they will need and use at the next Scrapbooking Club Workshop.
 
 
I take everyone's order and put them all together to place one big order and share the Hostess Rewards with the Club Members.  Once every 4 months they receive free product (as little as $25, but up to $40 plus an item at 50% off). 
 
 
How do I join a Club you ask?  It's simple, come to my Monthly Scrapbooking Club Workshop OR simply place a minimum order of $25 each month.  (I can even have the order shipped directly to you.)
 
 
 
Email me for more details or your order to become a Club Member today.
 
Here are all of the benefits of being in The Club:
  • A minimum of $25 in free product (about every 3-4 months)
  • A FREE Idea Book the month before it’s released
  • A FREE Monogram stamp set

La Belle Vie Scrapbooking Club - 2nd layout

Thanks so much for coming back to see the 2nd layout that we will be creating at my Monthly Scrapbooking Club on:
Thursday, January 10, 2013 from 6:30-9:30pm
Sunday, January 13, 2013 from 2-5pm
Cost starts at just $16 and includes a full Level 2 paper packet. You can also purchase all of the embellishments and tools used or you can borrow mine, the choice is up to you.
Contact me by Thursday, December 20 if you want to attend.



 I used the Workshop On The Go kit and a pattern from Make It From Your Heart to create this page.    I really like how it turned out.  I used the Cricut Artiste Bundle to cut, the center bracket, all of the flowers, and the sentiment piece.


I really enjoy being creative with ribbon and using it in other ways than just a border.  Here I sewed one edge of the Black Striped ribbon and then gathered it up and adhered the 2 ends together to create a circle. The bling gem in the center from the Boutique Assortment really finishes it off.


Now I can't take full credit for this idea.  I copied the idea of the little banners from the additional layout created by CTMH.  You use the lamp post stamp from the Workshop on the Go stamp set to create the post for these little banner flags.  If the link above doesn't work like I had planned you can see the stamp set on page 41 of the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.

 
So remember you can purchase the Workshop On The Go kit and Make It From Your Heart to complete this layout and more by shopping here.
OR if you live near Amelia (Chesterfield), VA you can join us for my Monthly Scrapbooking Club where we will create 4 12x12 pages including the 2 seen above at either of the following dates:
Thursday, January 10, 2013 from 6:30-9:30pm
Sunday, January 13, 2013 from 2-5pm
Cost starts at just $16 and includes a full Level 2 paper packet. You can also purchase all of the embellishments and tools used or you can borrow mine, the choice is up to you.
Contact me by Thursday, December 20 if you want to attend.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm working really hard to post more regularly.

La Belle Vie Scrapbooking Club in January

Anyone who has met me knows that pink is my favorite color.  I wear it all the time and my office is even painted pink.  So it's pretty safe to say that La Belle Vie is one of my favorite paper collections. 

I absolutely loved working with this paper (I even used it to decorate my calendar this year).  These papers would be great for scrappin' pictures of your sweetheart, family, delicate little girls, and anything elegant.

 
This is the page created with the Workshop On The Go kit.  You'll need the Cricut Artiste Bundle to cut, the center bracket, envelope, tag, and few other pieces.

The kit includes the Boutique Assortment with those great bling gems.  I also added the Black Striped ribbon

I really like the stamp set that you can only get in the Workshop On The Go kit.  It has this unique lamp post, the eiffle tower, "Ooh la la", and a super cute bicycle.  (You can see it on page 41 of the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.)

 
You can purchase the Workshop On The Go kit to complete this layout and more by shopping here.
 
OR if you live near Amelia (Chesterfield), VA you can join us for my Monthly Scrapbooking Club  where we will create 4 12x12 pages including the 2 seen above at either of the following dates:

THANK YOU for supporting my business!

To anyone who has attended a Scrapbooking Class, Card Workshop, Crop, or any other event of mine - THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!  I am so grateful to you for supporting my business this year.

For those ladies that purchased monthly or attend my monthly Scrapbooking Club I held my 2nd annual (free of charge) Club Member Christmas Party Crop this past Saturday, December 8.  Everyone brought a dish to share and a gift to exchange plus tons of scrappin' supplies to work on their projects.  We had a blast!

 
 
Each person also received the supplies to create this Make-N-Take page.  I took everyone's picture and provided them with all of the paper and embellishments.  I also offered amazing specials on my inventory as well as discounted and free product for orders.
 
This was just one of the ways that I could say THANK YOU to them for supporting my business. 
 
Ladies, THANK YOU again from the bottom of my heart.  You are true friends and I am forever grateful.  Jaime

Thanks for coming back today. Here I have the 2nd layout for the Scrapbook Club in December using the Flirty Workshop On The Go kit (G1050).



This layout was created by CTMH and was part of our make-n-takes from our annual Convention this past July.  All of my regulars just loved this page and the circles and decided this would be the additional pages for the Scrapbook Club. 
The circles are punched out at 1 1/4" and there are over 30 circles on this entire layout.

I used the Flirty Complements Dimensional Elements along with Sparkles and the Autumn Lane Assortment to embellish the pages.

 

If you live near Amelia, VA you are invited to join us in December for the monthly Scrapbooking Club that meets in my studio on the following dates:

Thursday, December 6 from 6:30-9:30pm
Saturday, December 8 from 2-5pm

Flirty Monthly Scrapbooking Club

I never thought FALL would be my favorite time of the year, but it definitely is.  I just love the colors of the leaves and the weather.  It's not too cold, but cold enough that you can start to bundle up and cuddle with a loved one.

This year's Fall collection is a must have for your pictures of pumpkin patches, raking and jumping into leaves, and of course that big family get-together.

This layout was designed by CTMH using our Flirty Workshop On The Go Kit (G1050).



The Flirty Workshop On The Go kit includes the following:
Flirty Paper Packet
My Acrylix® Flirty Workshop Stamp Set (C-size)
Colonial White Cardstock Sheets (2)
Sparkles Clear Assortment
Flirty Complements Dimensional Elements
Instructional Guide
Featured Colors: Flirty Raspberry, Flirty Yellow, Goldrush, New England Ivy
 
This kit includes the Flirty Complements Dimensional Elements (pictured above).  Who doesn't love that tree.  They are so easy to use; just "punch" them out of the sheet apply some adhesive and adhere them to your project.  You can even apply 3-D Foam Tape to the back of them to add even more dimension.

I also added the Autumn Lane Assortment to the pages.  I just love the flowers and the look that metal adds to a page.

If you live near Amelia, VA you are invited to join us in December for the monthly Scrapbooking Club that meets in my studio on the following dates:

Thursday, December 6 from 6:30-9:30pm
Saturday, December 8 from 2-5pm

Pear & Partridge Scrapbook Club - Pages 3&4

Thanks for coming back today.  Here I have the 2nd layout for the Scrapbook Club in November using the Pear & Partridge Workshop On The Go kit (G1052).



I have to admit that I had some help on this one.  My sister, Shannon Hensley, helped me (over Skype - that was fun) to create this layout. 
 
The inspiration for this layout came from our new Cricut Artiste Collection.  The "Merry Christmas" title is one of the 700 images that you can cut with this cartridge.  I just had to use it for the Scrapbook Club.  I added some of our Glitz Glitter Gel in Almond to really make it stand out.
 
 
And aren't these candy canes adorable.  They are part of the Pear & Partridge Complements Glittery Rub-Ons that come in the Workshop Kit.  I just added some sparkles to really make them shine.
 
 
This is a combination of rub-ons, stamps, and sparkles.  The cranberry swirls are stamps.  The flourish, bird and flowers are rub-ons with some sparkle added randomly because who doesn't love a little bling.
 
 
 
If you live near Amelia, VA you are invited to join us in November for the monthly Scrapbooking Club that meets in my studio on the following dates:

Thursday, November 8 from 6:30-9:30pm
Sunday, November 11 from 2-5pm
(I only ordered 3 extra paper packs, so contact me TODAY to guarantee your seat.)
Cost varies, but begins at just $16 (which includes a full level 2 paper packet with 12 sheets of paper).

If you aren't local I can put a kit together for you with my cutting directions and mail it to you.  Simply email me at jaime_llewellyn@yahoo.com to purchase your kit today.

Have a great day!! Jaime

Pear & Partridge Scrapbook Club - Pages 1&2

I just love scrapbooking Christmas pages and this year's Christmas paper packet is a must have.  CTMH used very traditional colors with a hint of Smoothie (a pink) thrown in and they are beautiful.  Here is the layout that CTMH created with the Pear & Partridge Workshop On The Go kit (G1052).
 


The Pear & Partridge Workshop On The Go kit includes the following:
My Acrylix® Pear & Partridge Workshop Stamp Set
Pear & Partridge Paper Packet
Colonial White Cardstock (2 sheets)
Pear & Partridge Complements Glittery Rub-Ons
Sparkles Red, Pink, & Purple Assortment
Instructional Guide
 
 
Here are some pictures of the stamped images on this layout.  The tree was stamped with Olive Ink on Olive Cardstock. 
 
The border below was stamped in Cashemere ink and the "half" snowflakes were stamped in Cranberry. I also added our new Glitz Glitter Gel in Almond for some extra sparkle. 

 
 
 
 
I used our new Rub-On Tool and it worked "like butta".  Simply cut out the rub-on that you want to use, remove the protective backing sheet, and rub it on to your page.  It's that easy. 
I just love the bird.

 
 
If you live near Amelia, VA you are invited to join us in November for the monthly Scrapbooking Club that meets in my studio on the following dates:

Thursday, November 8 from 6:30-9:30pm
Sunday, November 11 from 2-5pm
(I only ordered 3 extra paper packs, so contact me TODAY to guarantee your seat.)
Cost varies, but begins at just $16 (which includes a full level 2 paper packet with 12 sheets of paper).

Very Merry Christmas Gift Tags

So each month CTMH comes out with a Stamp Set that is only available during that month and gives you the opportunity to get the stamp set at a discount.  It's our Stamp of the Month program.  These stamp sets are regularly priced at $17.95, but with just a $50 purchase you can get the stamp set for only $5.
 
This month's stamp set is called Very Merry Christmas.

Here are some gift tags that I have created using this stamp set and both of our Cricut Cartridges (Art Philosophy and Artiste).

 
I just love how easy the Cricut makes things.  What a time saver that I don't have to cut the paper.

 
Both of these gift tags are Dimensional Elements (chipboard).  Each of the Cricut cartridges come with 3 sheets of our Dimensional Elements.  Art Philosophy comes with a sheet of gift tags.  So this tag is really sturdy and will hold up on a gift to a special someone this holiday season.
 
Be sure to check back tomorrow as I've got even more artwork featuring this month's Stamp of the Month, Very Merry Christmas.
 
Have a great day! Jaime

"A Gift For You" Card

So yesterday I shared the "A Gift For You" card that I created using the October Stamp of the Month, Very Merry Christmas

 
I mentioned that the ornament was cut using our Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  Well, the card itself was also cut with this cartridge.  That's how I got the scalloped edge around it and......

...a pocket to hold a gift card on the inside.  Isn't that just perfect!  Where else can you make your own cards to hold a gift card?  I just love it!  It's so easy and inexpensive!


Be sure to come back tomorrow to see more artwork using the October Stamp of the Month.

Have a great day!!

October Stamp of the Month

The October Stamp of the Month, Very Merry Christmas, is a "must-have" for your collection.  It features tags for your Christmas gifts, mittens, and sentiments that can be used for Christmas or winter in general.  Best of all 5 of the images coordinate with our Cricut Artiste Collection.  That's right!  You don't have to cut out your stamped images - your cricut will do it for you.  Woot Woot!!

Each of the images above that have an outline around them coordinate with the exact same image on the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  And it gets even better, the carrier sheet (pictured above) also tells you what page the image is on and what size to cut the image. 

Do you see next to the mitten in the upper left corner - 2 1/2" and p.79?  That is telling you that the image of the mitten is on page 79 of the Cricut Artiste Cartridge booklet and it should be cut at 2 1/2".  How easy is that?  (Close To My Heart's philosophy is Faster, Simpler, Easier and this is just another way that they prove that.)

So here is one of the many things that I have already created using this stamp set.


I cut the ornament out of Colonial White paper and stamped it with our new Cranberry pigment ink, then  heat embossed it with Cranberry embossing powder.  Here's a closer look at the ornament.

 
I also added some sparkles to really highlight the ornament.  

Remember that this Stamp of the Month is only available during the month of October.  With a purchase of $50 you can get this stamp set for just $5.  Click here to start shopping.

Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what is inside the card.  Does anyone have a guess?

Be sure to tune in tomorrow as we switch gears to the October Stamp of the Month.
This stamp set is available for $5 only during the month of October.  I'll show you everything that I have created with it (and boy is it alot more than I realized).  It's definitely becoming a go to stamp set.

Moonlight Card with Silver Shimmer Trim Ribbon

I know I keep saying it, but I LOVE the new Silver Shimmer Trim Ribbon and the Moonlight Paper pack.  Here is a card that I made that I think is elegant enough for a wedding.


This is the card that inspired the scrapbook page in the previous post.  The rose and the scalloped oval are both cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  These roses are so beautiful and so easy to roll.  The rose was cut out of Colonial White Cardstock and then painted with our Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint.  Simply set is aside to dry, sponge the edges with Slate ink and then roll it up.

Here is a list of the products used:
X7161B Moonlight Paper Packet
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
D1525 Casual Expressions
Z2503 Exclusive Inks Mini Pigment Pad Sets Basics Assortment

Scrapbooking Club uses Moonlight paper packet

I can't believe how much I love this paper.  I never thought I would be saying that a Halloween paper collection is my favorite out of 7 others.  Well, I don't know if it is my favorite, but I do LOVE it.  Here are the 2 pages that CTMH designed using the Moonlight Workshop On The Go kit.
 


Yes, that's me in the pictures - I think I was almost 2.  When I saw this page that CTMH had created I thought of these pictures.  Now since I don't have children of my own I wanted to create the other page so that it could be used for something other than Halloween and I love how it turned out.
 
 
 
I added the Silver Shimmer Trim Ribbon to the pages to dress them up.  I can't get enough of this ribbon.  First, it is adhesived backed and you can color it with our alcohol markers - need I say more.  You can purchase it by clicking here.  Check back tomorrow for a card that I created with this paper and the silver shimmer trim.  The card was actually my inspiration for this page.
 
If you are local you can come and make these 2 pages during the month of October.  At this workshop we will also use the blending pen to add just a touch of color to the mummy and the lamp.  

Remember if you aren't local, I can put together a kit for you with directions.

If you are local, I hope you will join us in October for the monthly Scrapbooking Club that meets in my studio in Amelia, VA on the following dates:

Thursday, October 18 from  6:30-9:30pm
Sunday, October 21 from 2-5pm
(I only ordered 3 extra paper packs, so contact me TODAY to guarantee your seat.)
 
Cost varies, but begins at just $16 (which includes a full level 2 paper packet with 12 sheets of paper). You can check out the Workshop On The Go kit here.
 
Email me to attend the workshop or place your order here for these great products!
If you aren't local or just can't make it to the workshop that's okay too. I'll put together a kit for you with my cutting instructions and detailed directions on putting the pages together on your own.  Simply email me at jaime_llewellyn@yahoo.com.

Clearly The Best

I have always known how versatile Close To My Heart stamps were, but this video "clearly" shows you just how much.  Discover the ease of creating new designs from stamp sets you already own. Personalize by using this new stamping technique. The versatility of clear My Acrylix® stamps makes it simple to bend, curve, and mix and match stamps to produce a completely unique design!



Don't use just love it!  I want to go back to my stamps and take a closer look to see just what else I can create.  Simply click here to see all of our current stamp sets available.

New Alcohol Markers

I have to admit that I have never been fond of coloring stamps, until now.  With our new alcohol markers they make coloring so much fun.  I hope to have some artwork to share with you soon, but in the meantime I hope that you enjoy this video on how to use our new alcohol markers.



Also, stay tuned for an upcoming class featuring our new alcohol markers.

National Stamping Month is September and we are celebrating early

I just love CTMH promotions and this is a great one.  Did you know that September is National Stamping Month?  Well at CTMH we are celebrating early with another double stamp set promotion.  Take a look at my page "Monthly Specials" for all of the details and watch this video for some ideas.



I plan to create a project with this stamp set and offer it as a class in October.  I hope you will plan to join us.
