OMG, I am so excited the new Close to My Heart catalog has landed in Adams house today! I woke up this morning and at 10 a.m. it is delivered right to my anxious little hands. I've been going through it all day long in can't wait to share it with you!
Everyone is in my workshops are the first among people to receive a brand new catalog. In addition new members, will also receive a new catalog!
I can only give you a sneak peak
Send me your contact information and we will make sure we connect over a new copy of the spring/summer catalog.
This week I was given the oh so awesome Echo Park - Chillingsworth. Some really like it and others are unsure how they feel about it. I myself love it.
Here is what I came up with.
I cut the hunted house using the Silhouette and made sure to roof the house using the Chillingsworth paper. There are also some steps covered with the paper pack and stickers from the collection pack.
I really enjoyed working with this paper pack that I might be able to squeak a few more things out of it.

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far.
Today is another Scrap Happy day. Candy and I are down here helping Susie out in the store so my workdesk is an entire store!
Hopefully I will have some fun stuff to show you later.
Make sure to stop by the store or hop over to the website. Scrap Happy Ohio
Ok, so I finished this last week and I have been a little behind getting things up on the blogs and everywhere else. Sorry everyone.
This card was made using the For the Record Documented by Echo Park. I also used the saying tag from Jillibean's new release. The banner tails were cut using Scrap Happy Die.
This is a simple yet useful card for any occasion.
Hope you enjoy this card. I can't wait to show you the project I'm currently working on for design team.... You are going to love it.
On with the September stuff. I'm sorry I missed AGAIN WOYWW, but I was getting ready for the garage sale this week and was not able to get it posted. I will make sure that I get that done this week. Now I have a couple of things that I need to address. The September stamp of the month for Close to My Heart.

Every now and then we all have goals we try to reach and there is one in particular I am ooh so close to reaching. With Close to My Heart, there is a program called Straight to the Top. It works like this:
Straight To The Top Sales
|Time Period*||Sales Required||Reward|
|First Month||$300||$25 in select product credit**|
|First Three Months||$1,200||$75 in select product credit**|
|Three Month Totals||$1,200||$100 in select product credit**|
So this week I have not been very busy in the craft room, but I have been very busy. I will first start off by letting you know that I am trying to keep an even flow of craftiness and family time going over the next couple of weeks but at this point I am not certain how often I will get to post. My grandmother fell on Thursday of last week and broke her humerus bone in her arm, the bone between the elbow and shoulder. This has caused great stress and the need for a lot of family interaction since she is still in the hospital.
I have never asked for cards in the past, but would love if you felt the gumption to create a get well card, to do so. All cards can be sent to

Thank you, if you choice to help brighten her day. She is not doing so well and I think this would help brighten a darkened day.
Ok, now on this the cheery stuff. Since I haven't been able to be in my room to much in the past week, I have been trying to quickly get things done. This is the card that I made for design team.
