February Constant Campaign Hearts for Haiti

February Constant Campaign
Hearts for Haiti

Our hearts go out to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti, and like so many of you, we’re eager to help. We’re excited to announce Close To My Heart’s February Constant Campaign, Hearts for Haiti—where customers can get a great deal while doing great good for those affected by the devastation in Haiti.

From February 1-28, 2010, our 12” x 12” textured cardstock combo packs are buy one, get one FREE—and with every offer purchased, Close To My Heart will donate $2 US to Operation Smile’s Haiti relief efforts.

Operation Smile is always a fantastic charitable partner—offering free facial reconstruction surgeries to needy children throughout the world. They’ve currently marshaled their medical teams and resources to provide emergency relief in Haiti, and the donations given as part of Hearts for Haiti will be used exclusively for Operation Smile’s efforts in Haiti.

Birthday cards for moms. - Yeah, I am finally back!

HELLLOOOOO! Finally I am BACK! My family and I went away in the middle of January to Punta Cana. I was busy packing and trying to find some summer clothes for my little guy who outgrew everything! We really had an amazing time, the kids had a blast! The weather was not Hot, but enjoyable which was perfect for the kids. Yep, I have no tan. :)

I used the following CTMH products: CTMH Topstitch Level 2 Paper Packet, Piece Of Cake ( February Stamp Of The Month )

This is the card I made for my mom. I emailed a little late...

I used the following products from CTMH: Liquid Glass, Piece Of Cake Stamp Set ( February SOTM ), White Daisy Cardstock,Summer Posies Flowers, White Daisy Flower Brads

BrrrRRrrrr , It is COLD! I wish I was still on vacation. :) I went out to scrapbook Friday night and it was -21 Celsius at Midnight!

Felicity layouts and Reindeer - gifts

Hello There! Finally I had a chance to post some layouts I made. Whew, it looks like things are starting to get back to normal... Chloe is back to school, I took the Christmas deco down on the weeekend ( I still need to put it away in the crawl space, but at least it is in the basement! )

Here is a Reindeer "layout". I found this idea on the internet, isn't is so cute?! And it is so easy to make. Just trace the kids hands and feet, cut it out, glue them down, find 3 buttons and that is it you'll need.

I used CTMH Juniper cardstock, CTMH Brown bag cardstock, Chocolate buttons from CTMH and Believe Caps and believe Lowercase Stamps sets, Perfect Day paper kit from CTMH.
The date stamp is from CTMH-December Stamp of The Month.

Here are a few Layout I created with the New Felicity Kit Collection! I just love these colours, they are perfect for my little pumpkins' pictures. I also use the following product from CTMH: Liquid glass, Chocolate cardstock, Chocolate Ribbon Rounds Collection and buttons, Natural Hemp,Chocolate brads, Crystal Blue cardstock, White Daisy brads.

Enjoy your day,
