Central Park CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

If you arrived here from Vandra’s Virtual CTMH Craftroom, welcome. Join in and hop around!

This hop features our Central Park collection. The vibrant palette of Bashful, Glacier, Lemon, Mink, Pacifica, Poppy, White Daisy, Willow is perfectly fresh and playful without being too bright.
I set myself the challenge of using only the Paper Packet + Coordinating Cardstock. I originally made these pages with no idea what photos I would use. (Does that happen to you too? Happens here all the time.)

I volunteered for Le Festival, Brisbane's French Festival last weekend. My red shirt just happens to perfectly go with this dotty paper!
One of the fun features of the festival was an instagram booth. Take any picture during the festival, upload it to instagram using the designated hashtags, and within minutes your photo popped out of the onsite printer. I may have printed a few of them! 😇

I was really not happy with this yellow paper and I couldn't see what I'd use it for. (Yellow is not my color.) Late one night I had a sudden brain burp. "Use it as your page bases!" Duh, of course! I could use it as my bases and plop other designs on top. So that is exactly what I did. Problem solved! 😉

To make these projects, I used my basic toolkit plus these materials. Click through to purchase or contact your consultant. Basic Toolkit: (Versamat, Trimmer, Ruler, Adhesive Runner), Central Park Paper Packet and Coordinating Cardstock, Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 3, My Legacy™ D-ring Album and Memory Protectors™ Top Load Value Pack.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment below and pin my projects before you pop over to Lauren Moore's CTMH Craftings.

Toolkits

With the start of a new Holiday Expressions book just around the corner, it is a great time to round up your tools, note what needs replacing or refills, and stock up your stash. Everyone who attends my studio for any workshop must bring their own set of tools.

Why do I require you to bring your own toolkit? It's very difficult to get any significant crafting done when many crafters are all needing to use the same tool at the same time. When everyone has their own tools to use, you can craft at your own pace and enjoy yourself!

A decent stash of basic tools for any crafter.
Add some versatile adhesives for more crafting options.
For crafters who want it all.
I've bundled together the absolute basics that are essential to getting the most out of your time in studio with me. It is much easier (and enjoyable) to complete your projects when you are equipped with the right tools. All tool kits are shipped directly to you for your convenience. They arrive at your door in one box, ready to craft. These kits aren't quite what you need? Contact me to create a kit that suits you!

AHSC 271



Did you really think I'd go for something floral for this sketch?😄


It's July and while I may be an Aussie, I was born and raised in the USA. Every year I do a 4th of July dinner. Usually it's burgers, baked beans, and potato bake. This year it is sausages and potato bake with brownies for dessert. This pocket card will perk up my pages for this week.

The digital kit used was found on Pinterest. For the life of me I can't find the pin!

Stampaganza 2018

Happy Stampaganza!!!
Buy any two stamp sets and get a third stamp set of equal or lesser value FREE! Add stamp sets to your cart and free sets will be determined automatically!

Courtesy of the Australian Government, GST is now on all orders.
No, I don't have a way around this.Yes, I'm forced to pass this additional cost on to you. Yes, I have to pay this unfair GST on all of my own personal purchases too and I'm not happy about it. Starting on July 1, you'll see 10% GST added to your order when you get to the confirm payment page. From September 1, all items on my website will show GST-inclusive prices.

What does this mean for you? Prices are going up across the board. As such, the prices for my listed July workshops and beyond will increase to cover the additional cost. I don't like raising my prices however in this case with such an increase in my cost, I have to do it.

S1807 Highlight Reel is the newest stamp of the month.
Each month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set, available for one month only, for just $7.50. When you place an order of $75 or more in Close To My Heart products, you qualify for this special Stamp of the Month pricing. Highlight Reel features 23 images. Here’s just one example of this set in use.
I recommend using the Versamat and Stamping Starter Kit for best results. Save $7.00 off the retail price when you buy the Stamping Starter Kit instead of the separate pieces. It's a great value kit and perfect to start your stash! Purchase additional blocks as needed to build up your collection and stamp happy!

Central Park is July's featured paper collection.
June workshops revolve around Central Park. Create layouts, cards, and so much more in my studio! Bookings are essential with full payment due no later than the cutoff listed for each event. Click through the links for more details and to book.
