 During the month of April, you have the opportunity to score a deal every day with Close To My Heart! What deals are we talking about? Each day during April, while supplies last, we’ll feature a random grab bag filled with current and retired Close To My Heart products available for purchase at a major discount. 

To grab your bag, simply place any current, full-priced item in your online shopping cart a and you will then be eligible to purchase as many grab bags as you wish (while supplies last)! 

Grab bags will be featured at five different price points throughout the month, ranging from $35 to $150 . 
Some grab bags will contain product with more than DOUBLE the retail value of the price you pay! 
Grab bags will be available for 24 hours starting at 3:00 pm MDT each day and only while supplies last—so visit often and early! 

Remember that grab bag tiers will be featured on a random schedule throughout the month, so seize the opportunity to purchase from the grab bag tier you’re interested in when it becomes available because it might not come around again!

I AM Hank with Process Video

I'm hosting another sketch challenge today for My Scraps and More Sketchathon. I'd love for you to come over and play along.

Here is my sketch for today.

And this is the layout I created with it. I have made several layouts with the Simple Stories I AM collection and I'm still in love with it. It's perfect even to scrap our furry friends.

On A Journey with Process Video

My Scraps and More is having a month long Sketchathon and I'd love for you to hop over and play with us. Today I'm  hosting and this is the sketch I've created for everyone to follow.

And here is the layout I created with the sketch. I used the fabulous Simple Stories I AM collection to document the relationship between my daughter and I during a particularly rough year for both of us. We were spending a lot of time together and grew very close.

Here's a look at the process

Scrapbook Haul

There are some new collections finally coming into the store that have been held up by all the dock strikes on the west coast. I decided to go heavy on the embellishments this month because I still had quite a bit of paper left. Even though I ordered 3 different lines they're all going to go really well together. I can't wait to start creating with them.

If you want to see more of my Disney projects you can find them all at the links below

I thought I'd share some of my favorite Disney pages I've done recently. You can click the links if you'd like to see more info about any of them.

I could go on and on. I love scrapping Disney! I hope I never run out of Disney photos to scrap because they make me so happy!

I store my memorabilia from our trip in these and keep with my photos so I can use them on my layouts.  I then add them to the back of my albums after I'm completed it to store any leftover memorabilia that I haven't included on the pages.

You can find Tracie at
Her blog:

She is a busy busy person. LOL

Disney 50's Prime Time with Process Video

Today I'm hosting a Mix it Up challenge at My Scraps and More forums. Be sure to hop over and join in.

The challenge is to
1. use a new collection
2. Use Die cuts (either electrical or manual die cutter)
3. Layer up. Layer your papers, your die cuts, photos, etc

I decided to work with the new October Afternoon Saturday Morning collection. I used my silhouette to cut my title and embellishments. I layered up all my papers and used at least 3 layers on my die cuts.

Here's a look at the step by step process

Today with Process Video

I had a few more photos from our 1st anniversary get away that I shared yesterday so I decided to pull out another background paper that I'd been hanging on to. I wasn't sure how to go about using it either so I decided to do a grid layout and keep the printing on the paper to finish out the grid.

To emphasize the grid even more I decided to use my stitching guide and hand stitch a grid using some teal embroidery floss. It really gave the page an extra pop.

Here's a look at the process.
