Close to my Heart Launches in Brisbane

What an exciting night! Our new company had it's official launch in Brisbane last night. There was such a buzz of excitement in the room with nearly 400 keen scrappers packed into the Mercure Hotel in the city. We got to meet some of the Close to my Heart team from the U.S.  and see all the gorgeous products  & pages, cards & more that had been created.
Then  it was our turn to be creative! We were shown how to make a beautiful card so easily with stamps & a double page spread using the gorgeous NEW Chantilly paper pack & accessories. We were then able to keep all the supplies we used...inks, stamp, papers, bling & more!! Over $48 worth! WOW! This company is SO generous!
Can't wait to show you my creations at one of our scrapping events  & tell you all the goss. Or better...come to the HUGE Expo at MtGravatt Bowls Club next Saturday 27th July from 9.30am - 12.30am...see my Events tab above for more information.
SO LOVE Close to my Heart!!
Thanks to Lorraine Lynch & Eleanor Durre for coming last night...I'm pretty sure they had FUN too!

All our goodies we received for just coming! Awesome!

Kara...one of my team meeting Monica from Head Office in the US.....think she was a tad excited!

Hello & Welcome!

This week I started my new journey with Close to my Heart - an exciting scrapbooking, stamping & card-making company! I can't wait until my new kit arrives with all new goodies in so I can start playing with them.
I've also delved into this new world of blogging so please be patient with me while I work all this out! It's been a HUGE learning curve for me. I hope to update you all here at least once a week.
I hope all my readers here are able to drop by next week & see all the new things & ideas. My classes can be found on this page under the top Events tab & just drop me a line if you would like to book in to see all the exciting releases & learn some great new techniques & ideas.
Looking forward to catching up with you all & helping you with your precious photo projects.

Happy Scrapping,
