Current project underway...

The CTMH Logan Ladies and I held our monthly Craft Day yesterday as the Ipswich Papercraft Show has been postponed to September. I was hoping to have my National Scrapbooking Month goodies on hand and to make my samples yesterday. Those are in delivery land limbo (grr) so I dug through my stash to try out a new pattern. This is what I got up to!


Hubby and I have been doing online trivia for a little over a year and have amassed a playing group from Woodridge to Kingston to Kangaroo Point to Sarina to Adelaide! Eventually I'll have pictures from all of our different households plus the trivia host (Isolation Trivia - Livestreamed for Lockdown) to put on here.

To create this layout I used the following products. Click through to purchase! Sea Glass Toffee and White Daisy Exclusive Cardstocks, Skylark and Home Sweet Home Paper, In This Together Stickers, Stamping Starter Kit, Espresso Lagoon and Charcoal Exclusive Inks, In This Together and A Typeface Stampsets, Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 5, Trimmer VersaMat™ Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors and Adhesive Runner.

Howdy!

It's been a while since I've introduced myself. Let's get started!


Hi there! I'm Creating with Kara Davies, your resident Ausmerican* scrapbooker... and cardmaker... and stamper...  well, you get the idea. I love crafting!

I'm Glenn's wife, Julia and Evan's Mama, big sister to 3, sister-in-law of 4 (almost 5), AunnieKay to 1, and Auntie of many. I'm also the proud leader of my team Heartwork Sisters.

I enjoy coffee, cooking, baking, coffee, photography, blogging, chocolate, coffee, and scrapbooking. I love my Jesus (and my coffee)!

I'm also one of the CTMH Logan Ladies. You'll see me behind the register at CraftAlive Logan, CraftAlive Gold Coast, and Ipswich Papercraft Shows.

My passion is teaching and empowering people to get their photos in albums, cards in mailboxes, putting smiles on faces and hearts touched.

I do this by showing people how to unleash their creativity using Close To My Heart products. Want to know more? I can show you how!

*What's an "Ausmerican" you ask? I'm an Aussie of American origin AKA "I wasn't born here but I got here as fast as I could"!
