Jackson Nature-Inspired Masculine Set -- and special announcement for June!

I'm really enjoying getting familiar with all of the new Close To My Heart products.   They've made things so fun and easy!    

This awesome new set of Picture My Life (PML) cards is now available for only $8.95 for 56 double-sided artwork-filled cards.    It is featured in the new special Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog edition and can be ordered online, as well!

PML is a really fun, stress-free way to scrapbook .. you mix and match two sizes of double-sided cards and place them into pockets of a pre-designed layout page protector.  Fill in with your photos and add a few lines of text, and you're done!

PML isn't just for scrapbook pages ... they are very fun cards with a wide variety of purposes ... which brings me to my new announcement . . . 

COMING SOON - June Workshop  
In early June, I'll be offering a workshop which will feature the Jackson PML set.  You'll learn step-by-step how to make a wonderful mini-album and a set of greeting cards.   The colors are woodsy and nature-centric and perfect for dad, grad, or friend.    

Space will be limited, if you'd like to hold a spot, please email me at Anyone on the list will be given first choice once the workshop details and dates are announced.

Grand Opening!!

After taking several years off, I am excited to be back with the Close To My Heart family as an independent consultant!

So much has changed, and yet the quality and selection of beautiful products offered by CTMH remains unparalleled.   I'm looking forward to spending some time with the new papers, ink colors, and awesome acrylic stamp sets and sharing what I make with you.

I plan to start putting together monthly workshop events in Wilsonville, Oregon.   For those who can't attend in person, I will be offering kits via mail with everything you need to complete the projects, including complete instructions with photos.  Keep an eye out here if you are interested and want to join in on the fun!
