"Free To Be Me" just 10 days left

The month of May is all a blur. It is going so quickly. Well I have to say the highlight of the month of May was the Rediscover event I attended. We were honored to have Close To My Heart head office come to Winnipeg for the first time ever. It was an amazing night of inspiration in s many ways.
There are still a few more days to take advantage of the May specials. If you purchase a minimum of $50 from my personal website there are a few great offers. 
During National Scrapbooking Month in May, you can get the Free to Be Me paper collection for just $5 with your qualifying purchase of $50. The paper collection features exclusive printed cardstocks, vellums, and B&T Duos™ and, with a retail value of $11.95, is a fantastic deal for products you can’t get anywhere else. Plus, with your $50 qualifying purchase, you will also qualify for the May Stamp of the Month for an additional $5 (retail value $17.95)! This means May is the perfect month to double up on promotions, getting the paper collection for $5 and the May Stamp of the Month for $5—that is a savings of nearly $20! So make sure to get your Free to Be Me paper collection in May for just $5 and let your creativity take flight!
Here is a picture of the "Free To Be Me" paper-

If you place an order that includes this great paper I will also email you a workshop that highlights this paper collection and includes two layouts and three cards. This is my take on one of the layouts.
Enjoy- Chris!

Published Layout with CTMH

I am very excited to say this is my first layout published with Close to My Heart product. I loved the page ever since I completed it. It has a few of my favorite photos from my photography class that I took last winter. It was an amazing class. It just feels good to understand my camera a bit better.
The paper is ProPlayer and it is still available until the end of the run of this Idea Book in July. If you are interested be sure to head over and do some shopping.
The magazine is called Create and a great resource if you like to work from sketches. Check them out here.
Enjoy! Chris

Bling into Spring

I believe I have posted before about my "Bling in the Spring" parties. At the last one I remembered to take a few pictures. So I am going to share them today. They were all so much fun! If you are interested in hosting your own please let me know. The project doesn't take very long and it is just a fun evening with your girlfriends.

I have to say a few people got away with out photos, but I will get them next time. The funniest part is there were two ladies there that were not sitting close together but had been friends since grade four. They made the exact same pendant without even knowing what the other had done.
Enjoy! Chris

A Birthday Card

So today is Cinco de Mayo and my sisters birthday. Time to whip up a quick card. It is using the Ariana paper from Close to My Heart. It was quick and easy but I think it turned out cute!
The stamps I used were Funky Blossom and Holiday Tags. If you have any question don't hesitate to ask and don't tell my sister about it yet!
Enjoy! Chris
