Craft with Heart Subscription is Here!

posted in: Cut Above, General Info, Layouts | 0

I am SUPER excited about this brand new program that just released on the 1st.  It’s a new scrapbooking subscription.  Imagine, a pretty pink box showing up on your doorstep on a regular basis.

Have you thought or even said these things?

I don’t have time to scrapbook.  I’m not creative enough.  It’s too overwhelming.  I don’t even know where to start!  This pretty pink box is the answer to all of that.  Right now you can sign up for 12 months of Cut Above layouts delivered right to your mailbox, in 3 easy shipments.  You’ll get 4 months of layouts at a time.  Each month’s kit contains 2 double-page layouts.  Take a look:

Aren’t they beautiful?  I know you’re thinking, I can’t make those!  But you can!  Every kit comes pre-cut with all the stickers and pieces needed along with full-colour instructions.  You just follow the steps to assemble, add your photos and tell your story.  The only additional items you need are some adhesive and a journaling pen.  I promise it’s as easy as it sounds.

And there are perks to signing up for the 12-month option.  First, you get FREE shipping!  (Woohoo!)  Second, the kits themselves are cheaper.  (Yay for saving money!)  Third, you get a coupon code from Persnickity Prints for 30 free photos with every shipment!  That’s 90 free photos.  (Canadians still need to pay shipping, but still … free photos!)


So, are you ready to jump in?  Here’s how you sign up:

Go to my website.  Just click here.  It’ll open in a new tab so you can follow the instructions here if you get lost.

Step One:  Click subscribe.

Step Two:  Sign in, or create an account.

Step Three: Choose the number of subscriptions you would like.  Just one for yourself, or give as a gift to your bestie, or both!  Then click Continue.

Step Four:  If you haven’t ordered from my site before, you’ll need to add your address. This is also where you’ll add your friend’s address if you’re purchasing for someone else.  Sorry, kits can only be shipped to one place at a time.  If you want to create a subscription for yourself and for someone else, you’ll need to go through the process two times.  Hit continue when you’re done.

Step Five:  Enter payment info and hit continue. (Getting the hang of it?)

Step Six: Click Subscribe!  At the bottom of the screen you’ll see all the details.  Subscription starts immediately, and you won’t have to pay anything else until Sept. 2019!

And you’re in!  You’ll see this notification that your next shipment will be in January.  That is for the SECOND shipment.  Your first set of 4 kits will be shipping soon after you subscribe.



And that’s it.  You’ll now be able to create 2 double-page layouts every month.  Or do all 8 in one sitting if you’re really hardcore.  🙂

Stay tuned.  I might be starting a monthly meet up to create these pages together.  Either way, I hope you’ll share your completed layouts with me.  I’m excited to get caught up on some of my story-telling.  I hope you are, too!

Happy Creating!


Here’s To You

posted in: Cards, Layouts, Promotions | 0



I promised all the details about the new product bundle Close To My Heart released on the 15th and here it is!  Here’s to You has a wedding theme, but it also can be used to celebrate any friendship or relationship.

This set of products includes 4 exclusive stamp sets and two special discounted bundles of products that allow you to create a one-page layout and a set of cards if you follow a set of instructions created just for this special.

Here are the projects you can make:

Aren’t they pretty?  And you can easily make this layout to celebrate a new marriage or an anniversary.  The cards are flexible as well.  The samples, and the instructions, require the use of the Artistry Cricut cartridge, or you can make it your own using whatever you have access to.  For those with an Explore, the instructions include a link to a Design Space file, so no need to guess which images and what size!  Love that.

So, the details about the bundles.  There are two options, one with a Rose Embossing folder and one without, which is great since I already have the folder as some of you may too.



This the kit.  Here’s what it all includes:

1 – My Acrylix® To You Stamp Set (B1597)
1 – My Acrylix® Wishing You Joy Stamp Set (B1596)
1 – My Acrylix® Flourishing Friendship Stamp Set (B1599)
1 – My Acrylix® Sending Sunshine Stamp Set (B1600)
11 – cardstock sheets (1 Bashful, 1 Glacier, 2 Juniper, 1 Lagoon, 2 Linen, 1 Pacifica, 2 White Daisy, 1 silver glitter)
1 – Vellum sheet
1 – White Pearls (Z3370)
1 – Rose Embossing Folder (Z3343) (or without this)
7 – white cards & envelopes







If you want to do the projects as pictured, you’ll need to make sure you have Glacier, Pacifica and lagoon inks, as well blocks, you adhesives and Foam Tape or Foam Dots.

Here’s a close up of what those stamps look like:

You can get them all individually as well as part of the bundles.  Just a note, the red line shows the Cricut cut, it’s not part of the stamp image.

Cross Canada Hop: Central Park Workshop Your Way

posted in: General Info | 13

Hello everyone!  I have the pleasure of returning to the Cross Canada Blog Hop as the official Workshop Your Way “reveal-er”.  We are focusing on a particular paper pack each month and I get to show you the Workshop Your Way kit.  If you came from Sheena’s blog you are on the right track.  If you just popped on my blog first, be sure to keep clicking the links at the bottom of each post until you get back here.

This month, our featured paper pack is Central Park.  I love the super fun colours and the Complements that come with this kit are perfect for so many things.  My layouts will show, that although most of it looks like summer, you can use this kit for more fun things.

First, let’s show you what comes in the kit.

Here’s what’s included:

1 – Central Park paper packet (X7231B)
1 – Central Park Complements (X7231C)
4 – cardstock sheets (1 Pacifica, 3 White Daisy)
1 – Central Park sequins (Z4178)
1 – Central Park alphabet (Z4197)
printed instructions
photo placeholders

Here are the three layouts you’ll get to create with this kit:

I had to cut the one branch of the tree so it didn’t cover my son’s head, but I think it still works.  🙂

In the instructions for this one, there shows a red heart in the cluster on the right page, but there is no heart in the kit.  You could cut one I guess, or just leave it off like I did.  I don’t miss it at all.

I think this one might be my favourite.  (If my photos are blurry I apologize.  Not sure why and I’ll be working on it to make sure it doesn’t happen next time.)

Now you get to hop on over to Brae’s blog to see what she created with this fabulous paper pack.  If you like what you see, contact your consultant to place your order.   Stay tuned to our hop next month where we will showcase Documented.

Happy Creating!
