If you haven’t checked out my new blog yet, be sure to read my “A Big Thank You & Celebration” post! You’ll also get a look at the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Collection.  Mine will be here soon; I can’t wait! I’m really ready to start scrapbooking my Hawaii photos and to finish some […]

Creative Weekend!

I completed a layout while cropping with a friend last night and another one today on Studio J!  I love weekends like this.  Only 1 1/2 weeks left of school and then I hope to spend my summer in many such creative endeavors.  Be sure to check out the video on my new blog, Studio […]

More Studio J Tutorials

I’m really excited about the Studio J tutorials I’ve made over the past couple of weeks.  Studio J is so quick and easy, so it is perfect for beginners.  Yet, it is also ideal for those of us with some digital scrapbooking experience and Photoshop skills.  I’m going to start making tutorials to help advanced […]

Creating & Embellishing Journaling Strips in Studio J

I had a great New Year’s Eve with my husband and friends last night.  We always share our goals for the new year, but this time we are finding inspiration from the one little word post by Ali Edwards.  My guiding words for the year are balance and write.  I want to find balance in […]

You Make Me Happy

I discovered a Sketchabilities contest last night and fell for sketch #20!  Even though I have a ton of school work to do, I decided that, after the stress of the past couple of weeks, I needed to relax and scrapbook.  So, I’ve been working on this layout on and off throughout the day.  I know […]

Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book Sneak Peek

I’m not really a Halloween person.  For years, Neal and I ignored the holiday, turned off the porch light, and went to a movie to avoid having candy in the house.  Luckily, our house was never egged by disgruntled trick-or-treaters!  Even so, I find it amusing that, for the past two years, I’ve had a […]

Studio J Sneak Peek

Close To My Heart’s Studio J will launch in a few months, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone I know! Since I attended Leadership, I was given early access to Studio J but have only now had a chance to play with it. I placed my first order a few minutes ago […]

Creativity Challenge Update

Wow! It’s a little embarrassing that I haven’t updated my Weekly Creativity Challenge for 3 months! It’s not that I haven’t been creative; it simply is that my blog took a backseat to school, my online classes, my CTMH club, and my sick kitties. I’m on winter break now, so I’m going to get back […]

I’m shocked!

I have to tell you, I am absolutely shocked right now; so much so that I’m posting a quick blog during lunch at work…I never do that! I just discovered that I won 2nd place in the August CTMH “Make it from Your Heart” Contest for the “Trick or Treat” card I submitted to a […]

Learn Something New Day 10

I really wanted to get caught up on my digi LOs today, but this was all I was able to finish. I need to spend the rest of the evening exercising and grading papers…fun times! I rotated the designerdigitals.com template I used yesterday since this LO will be on the facing page. I also included […]
