You Are My People #ctmh #closetomyheart #jeanettelynton #thesearemypeople #youaremypeople #ctmhconsultants #cutabove #scrapbooking #album #minialbum #memorykeeping #giveaway #birthday #prize #free

As many of you know, March is a special time of year around Close To My Heart: It’s my birthday month! Every year, as my birthday approaches, I can’t help but reflect on life. I like to reevaluate how and where I spend my time, and especially with whom. I’m not perfect, but I believe in making every moment count and living life to its fullest, and when I look at the wonderful people who have walked by my side over the past 35 plus years, I am blessed to know that I am doing just that!

You Are My People #ctmh #closetomyheart #jeanettelynton #thesearemypeople #youaremypeople #ctmhconsultants #cutabove #scrapbooking #album #minialbum #memorykeeping #giveaway #birthday #prize #free

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for believing in me and my vision for Close To My Heart, and for making dreams come true day in and day out. You, my dear Consultants and readers, are MY people! I could not ask for a better group of women to share my life with. I am truly blessed to have you and love you all so much!

For my birthday, I want to celebrate you, the wonderful people in my life. One way I plan on doing this is through the special that we just launched on March 1st, These Are My People. One of my favorite products in this special is the These Are My People Cut Above® kit. (All of the pages that you are seeing today are from this kit, complete with pictures of our wonderful Close To My Heart Consultants! <3 )

A fifth winner will also be picked for a grand prize. This lucky person will receive the album, pen, and Cut Above kit, as well as a $50 (USD) credit to Persnickety Prints, and a Sticky Boy and Sticky Girl stamp (because they are some of my favorite people, too!)!

Beautiful Scrapbooking and Cardmaking Made Fast and Easy

Happy November, everyone! We are so excited for the opportunity to pop in today and share with you how to put beautiful scrapbook pages and cards together in a snap using the Cut Above® kits that are available through our Craft with Heart™ program.

Scrapbooking and Cardmaking Made Easy #ctmh #closetomyheart #craftwithheart #scrapbooking #cardmaking #subscription #diy #easyscrapbooking #fastscrapbooking #easycardmaking #fastcardmaking

The excuse that we hear most often from people for not scrapbooking is that they simply don’t have the time to do it. Cut Above® layout kits are the response to that genuine concern. Each kit comes with all of the pieces you need to complete two coordinating two-page 12″ x 12″ scrapbook layouts, including pre-printed base pages, pre-cut paper pieces and die-cuts, complementing stickers, and simple assembly instructions. Essentially, all of the cutting has been taken out of the scrapbooking equation, saving you tons of time and allowing you to jump right into the artistic and creative side of memory keeping that we all enjoy and love so much.

Like Karen explains in the video, the layout kits included in a Craft with Heart™ subscription are Cut Above® kits. That means you don’t have to try to come up with a  pattern for your layout or even cut any paper. All the parts and pieces come in the box for you. That includes die-cuts, stickers, base pages, and even Memory Protectors™. You just need adhesive, thin 3-D foam tape, a journaling pen, and of course, your photos!

With a Cut Above® kit, some of the details that add a little extra pop to your scrapbook pages are already done for you. The pre-printed base pages for your project could have elements like scallop edges, small banners, circles, and other more intricate designs. Even the ink splatters on the layout Karen created in the video, and shown below, are pre-printed on the page.
