Miracle Kit!

Celebrate National Scrapbooking Month with Close to My Heart's adorable Miracle kit (available through May 31st while supplies last).

I can't tell you just how beautiful these papers & stickease are in person! This kit is so fun & easy to put together! No stamping required! You can change the look by the ink you use to sponge onto the new Irresistibles™ Die-Cuts chip board. This allows you to coordinate the kit with whatever photos you want, just use an ink that coordinates with the dominate color in your photos. Here I used Pansy purple to tie it all together.

And, check out how fun flip flaps are!

Flip Flaps attach right onto your layout or your page protector and allow you to stack several photos in one spot! The brochure that comes with the kit gives you step by step instructions.

Check out all the details here. If you would like to order the kit you can find it on my website at kellyrobinson.myctmh.com or contact me. Happy Scrapping!

I had a chance to play and order my first pages recently. And, I have to tell you that it was amazing to sit and work on my projects from the computer and if I needed to take a break, I just logged out and came back to it later!

Easter cards & more with Caboodle!

The Caboodle paper pack is so versatile! This pack has a fun color scheme to use for all kinds of themes. Here are a few cards from our monthly hostess club and a few other cards that were sent off to a few special loved ones. I think I've fallen in love with Tiny Tabs! The are simply adorable!
