New Heartfelt Die Cuts!

I was sitting here, going through Close to My Hearts awesome artwork on the consultants bulletin boards and found a great display of our new Heartfelt Die Cuts thanks to Helen Onulak. There are so many great options and things to create with this kit but unfortunately our newest Idea Book doesn't showcase them as well as I wish they did. Believe it or not, there are over 160 pieces included in just one package. The options are endless!!! Look at all that you get!

Here are the die cuts in Twilight. I love the swirls, the snowflakes and the stars! The snowflakes were used in the idea book in several different designs - just add a little Bonding Memories Glue and Prism Glitter and they sparkle beautifully!!!

The Chocolate cuts are so cute and so make me think of the Twitterpated paper when I see them. I love the Bambi. I actually saw one in our yard yesterday - it took me a minute to make sure it was a deer because it was so small I thought it was a dog. It was so sweet and wonderful. A definite smile from heaven!!!

The olive cuts are awesome for Fall and Christmas too! Add our new Glitter Brads on the trees to spice things up and give them a true Christmasy feel - they look amazing! I love how versatile these are! Give them a try and let me see what you can do with them! I can't wait to see!

Scrapbooking Up a Storm



The last few weeks have been so busy! Last weekend was my all day crop. We had a great time, ate A LOT of food, sang and scrapped the day away.



As I was having fun scrapbooking the rest of the family was doing a walk for another half of our family. My nephew was diagnosed with Autism a couple years back and so the whole family did a walk at the Nashville SpeedWay in support of him. It was a mere 40 to 45 degrees outside and was freezing! I know, I know - to my family in New York, this is nothing but to us new southerners - it is cold!!!! Here are a few pictures of my poor family during their walk. It is amazing how resilient kids are.





Last night was my monthly workshop. We had a blast. It was a smaller group than usual, but sometimes that means that people will come out of their shell more and the evening comes a live! Ms. Kris was a blast to watch as she created her layouts.




We had such a good laugh at Kris's expense as she had made her own pair of bifocals. She refuses to go to a stronger pair of lenses for her glasses so will double up the pairs of glasses she wears when she HAS to. She was hilarious!!!


We had a blast making our Twitterpated layouts. Here are some photos of the layouts we created.



I'm having a hard time coming up with just the right title for this layout. Any ideas? If you can come up with the perfect title for me, post a comment with your title suggestion and you will win a FREE stamp set.

Here are pictures of next months main layout and alternative cards.





To find out how to join me on November 20th to create this layout and/or cards, check out my website at http://www.heatherhicks.myctmh.com/. Would love to laugh and scrap the night away with you too!

I'll be Twitterpated!

I love our new Twitterpated papers! You will see many posts here soon showing several different layouts using our new Twitterpated papers. Tomorrow night I have private Workshop at a customers home. The hostess requested the theme to be a back to school layout. Here is what I came up with.

I hope you like it. It isn't your traditional back to school layout but I thought it was a fun layout non the less.

I've mentioned before that I am in a swap with some other very talented consultants so I thought I would show off the Twitterpated layout and a card that Amanda DesJardin created.



Here is something else that I have been working. I will have more coming soon but this is our new card "Around the Holidays". Here I have changed the cards into an ornamanet/card that can be used as a quick Christmas gift and card all rolled into one. These are so fun and easy to do and almost everything shown here came in the kit, including the ribbon and 3D Foam Squares.
