Thank you for hopping with the Joyful Stars!!! If you arrived here from
Helen's blog, you are on the right track.
As the month of July draws to a close, so does the Close To My Heart Spring/Summer Idea Book. All of our lovely paper packs will be departing to make way for NINE, yes NINE new paper lines. They are amazing, I promise you, but I will truly miss many that we have right now. Here is a card that I made as we get ready to say goodbye to "Jubilee"... the quintessential summer paper if you ask me. Here is a better view of all the Jubilee graphic papers. (Six sheets of coordinating cardstock are also included for a total of 12 sheets.)
To make the card I used the stamp set from the Jubilee Workshop on the Go. This kit includes not only a full paper packet, but also everything else you see below.
Additionally, I used the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge to make the daisies, and Colonial White ink on Black Cardstock to stamp the sentiment.
I hope that you enjoyed this stop on the Joyful Stars blog hop. Please visit soon as I have a few AMAZING layouts featuring Jubilee in a way you have never seen it! Up next on the hop is the very talented Krista Hershberger. See you next month!

I decided to use up some of my Babycakes paper scraps that were just floating around my table and taking up valuable space. I grabbed this adorable Camper Crazy stamp set and whipped up this cute little card.
Don't you love this stamp set? Camper Crazy can be yours for only $13.95 while it is still available.

As we approach July 4th, I wanted to share something special with you. My dearest friend Julie, also a CTMH consultant, created these wonderful projects from our CTMH Jubilee paper packet and Jubilee Complements. (They will only be available for a short time now, so be sure to order them while you can.) These projects really feel like Americana to me! And I was blessed when I received all of these projects in the mail back in January when I wasn't feeling so well, as a gift from Julie. I have met many great friends through Close To My Heart, but Julie and I really got to bond during our time at CTMH's Disney World Convention last year. Thanks, Julie, for letting me share your artwork!

I have finally solved one of life's biggest mysteries!!! What to get the in-laws that have everything. They don't need any more silly clutter, and K Cups are kind of boring lol! It couldn't be easier really. Want in on my secret? Here's the story..
My in-laws moved all the way to Florida nearly 10 years ago. We don't get to see them that often, and our 4 kids are growing up so quickly. At times, it can be nearly a year between visits. So, from now on, I am providing them with a means to keep up with the kids while simultaneously providing them with something to brag about with their fellow Villagers. My gift to them arrives on their doorstep, with $5.95 flat rate shipping.
I have decided to create Studio J layouts that they can put into the scrapbook that I bought for them. They can show it off to their friends whenever they want. This batch of layouts features our 2013 trip to Disney, where they spent some time with us.
First up is a layout of my husband and his brother and some of the (grand)kids...
The second layout features my in-laws, Carol and Ed, along with my husband and four kids...
The last layout I will share with you is my favorite, and not because I am in it! It is more the memory that it holds for our family. You see, Carol and Ed aren't nearly the Disney Fanatics that we are. They drove down to have dinner at O'Hana with us. Guess what? They loved the food, atmosphere, and family experience. I won't say they caught the Disney bug, but I think they might now understand what brings us back year after year.
Would you like to create your own layouts? Interested in giving some as gifts like I have done? You can begin by going to my website and creating an absolutely free, no strings attached account. There are countless CTMH paper packs and patterns to customize your own layouts. Here is the link:
Each two paged layout is only $6.95 to purchase, and 4 to 50 of them ship for a flat rate of only $5.95.
