Little Dreamer Blog Hop

Blog Hop cover photo

Welcome to our Little Dreamer Blog Hop!
We will be showcasing items from our new Seasonal Expressions II catalog with various projects created by talented Close to My Heart consultants.
If you are visiting from Gerri’s blog then you are on the right track, if not please start at the beginning with our hostess Carol.

I loved playing with this Little Dreamer kit and made several cards from it, but one of my favorites is this one.
I was inspired by another card I saw on Pinterest and I had to tweak it to fit on my folded card.
Pinterest is my #1 go to for inspiration and learning new techniques.
You can find my CTMH Pinterest board HERE, where I save anything I see that is created with CTMH products.



I love creating this folded card.
With just a few score lines, you can create a card that WOWs!

I used the Little Dreamer Paper Pack, Little Dreamer Coordinating Cardstock, Little Dreamer Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts, the Marvy Journaling pen and the Clear Shimmer Brush to create this folded card.
You can find all the supplies on my website at

Each month I create a card kit, with 4 different designs using a current paper pack & stamp set. For June’s kit, I used the Little Dreamer coordinating supplies.
You can find more information on my kits HERE.


If you have not started at the beginning, you can swing on over to Carol’s blog where it starts for more inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy May!

Welcome to May! Whew does it seem like the year is flying by?
We started our softball & baseball schedule and are busier than ever.

A new month means new specials from Close to My Heart and what kind of consultant would I be if I did not share these gorgeous things!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!
Each year, the first Saturday in May is designated as National Scrapbook Day and why not make it a month long celebration.
Close to My Heart does something special each year and this year is another WOW!

Introducing the Live Beautifully paper pack and stamp set.
This beautiful paper pack and stamp set is only good during the month of May or while supplies last.

Each customer who purchases the paper & stamp set will also receive a copy of this Card workshop that makes 20 cards with just 1/2 of the paper pack by email.

You can make 2 each of 10 different card designs in a short time.

This month’s is called Live, Laugh, Love and I love it.
Whether you love coloring designs in or not, you can choose to add your own flair & color it in or you can leave it a solid color.
