Happy July! Welcome to my new Close To My Heart Business!

I just signed-up to be a Close To My Heart Consultant on the 1st of July!

My New Consultant Kit has just arrived and I cannot wait to share our new product range with you! You can check-out the online catalogue at my website and you are welcome to place orders now!

I will be offering Gatherings, (like a Party), where the Host receives benefits and discounts. Let me know if you would like to be one of the first to Host a Gathering for me with my new business. I know you are going to love the new products! In addition to Scrapbooking our range has been extended by three times as many products to include a wide range of papercraft and stamping supplies!

My next Workshop event is Saturday the 10th August at Cowes, Phillip Island and I will be holding an Open House/Gathering at Mt Eliza soon.  Let me know if you would like to book in for these events!

I am so excited about sharing with you the samples I made at the official Launch event that we had in Melbourne and if you can’t wait to see the products or to talk about the business, please feel free to call and make a booking for a one on one discussion.

And of course you are welcome to join my team! This is a ground floor opportunity with an amazing company! I am so happy to share more information if you are interested. And if you have a friend that you think might be perfect as a CTMH Consultant I hope you'll consider bringing them along to my next Workshop/Gathering  in August.  Close To My Heart is the 'show me how' company and we are so excited to be bringing this brand new business opportunity to Australia and New Zealand!

I look forward to seeing you soon! I will have great project ideas for you in August using new products!

Digital Pages from my USA 2011 Album

Just love my Storybook Creator Plus program, it makes my Digital Scrapbooking so easy.  These are three pages from the latest Album I have had printed and I'm so glad that now "Mystory" will now be printing these Albums with the same high quality that I love.

Digital Scrapbook page of Paris sights

I have now sorted all my photo's from my trip into Sort boxes and folders with my Creative Memories Program "Memory Manager" . I scanned tickets, brochures etc and have followed up with journalling. It took ages to get it all the way I wanted and now I have moved it all into Creative Memories Storybook Creator, which is a Digital Scrapbooking program. It has been a while since I have done anything Digitally and so I have my book of Techniques out and trying a few different ideas. This is a possible heading page for Paris!

photo's in Europe

Just some quick Mugshots of me on Vacation! Hot Air Ballooning over the Loire Valley, on the Funiculaire going to Crans-Montana, Switzerland for the Reunion and outside Petit Paradis one of our hangouts 20 odd years ago!

Reunion Photo's

I have been so slack at keeping my blog up to date! With the Reunion in Switzerland and my extended holiday around the world, I have been busy working to pay for it. Top photo is at the Gala Night and the other is of a group of us at the Monk'is Bar, in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. I am now at home and back to making a Digital Album of my travels and making my Christmas Cards.

Reunion in Switzerland....

For those of you who don't know, I studied Hotel Management at "Les Roches" Hotel Management School, Crans Montana, Switzerland years ago and we have finally been able to organise a Reunion for August 2011. I am getting really excited and have booked the accomodation in the same Hotel that I lived in over 20 years ago! NOW FOR THE DIET AND EXERCISE.

Christmas Cards from S_U_I_O Group

I was spoilt with lots of Christmas cards from the Stampin Up In Oz Group. These are from Fiona Platzer and Diane Hobden.

Where have I been????

My husband was out of work for over 4 months so I had to become the bread winner and try to keep my sanity. Did a little cardmaking and Scrapbooking but just didn't get back to the Blog to post. Sooooo... I plan to add to the blog at least twice a month and may even surprise us all!!

Digital Classes

Now that I have the Storybook Creator Plus 3.0 program I have been trying out new Techniques and finding my way around both the Computer and the program. I can't believe how many fantastic things I can do with the program especially as it only costs $79.00 Australian. I have just finished doing a Surprise Album for my brother for his 40th, 62 pages long! The above photo is one of my beginner pages which uses a photo in the title, changed the hue of the background paper and lined up a border of individual chairs and made them all the same size and distance. Look out for more pages this month.


From Jenny Hubbard
From Kerri Donsky Look at the beautiful cards I received in the mail last week, both from my "Stampin Up In Oz" friends. I haven't made cards for a while now as I have been busy with my Scrapbooking, but they have inspired me to pull out the stamps again.

Secret Sister Gifts I sent

We have had another round of "Secret Sister Swaps" from the Yahoo Group "Stampin Up In Oz". I sent a matching card, bag with cards inside and a box full of chocolates for one of the 3 months. Now that it has finished I can reveal that I was sending surprises to Sandra A who is a Stampin Up Demo, which made me a little nervous but she sent a lovely card to thank me for all the gifts.
