Today's video is the last in my series of making customizable stickers for your Erin Condren Planner. I make two stickers. One is a reminder to exercise (something I definitely need a reminder of) and one to drink your water. Hope you enjoy.
The card for today features the same stamp set, Little Monsters, used in the Halloween layout on Tuesday. It's just too cute. Can you see my mistake on this card? Yes...that's right...I put the front panel on backwards. I figured, what the heck, it's still cute. The person that gets this might think I did it on purpose for Halloween. I used the Nevermore paper pack and Close to my Heart's watercolor pencils to color in the adorable monsters. The sentiment comes from the stamp set as well and I used the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge to cut out the layers of coordinating shapes. The spider web comes from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge. I shrunk it down to fit perfectly on the front of the card. I love that Cricut Design space gives you the ability to quickly size elements to fit whatever project you're working on!
Here are the Close to my Heart products I used to make this card.
Tomorrow I have the last video in my Erin Condren series.
For some reason, probably user error, I had my Tuesday and Wednesday posts go out yesterday instead of one yesterday and one today. So as to not miss a day of posting, I decided to share with you what a bad day looks like for my puppy. I think that once you see this, if you happen to wake up a little grouchy in the morning, this picture might make your day a little brighter.
To set this up, my three month old puppy came downstairs to eat yesterday morning and here's what I was presented with.
Can someone please explain to me how this could have happened? I was not downstairs more than 5 minutes after leaving him at the top of the steps because he decided he didn't want to come down just yet. Is he a contortionist? Did his doggie siblings put this on him as a joke? Honestly, he wasn't even that upset by it. What a goofball! Hope it makes you laugh.
As I talked about yesterday in my Tools to Succeed post, here's another example of two cards you can make as a workshop or gathering project featuring the Zoe Paper Pack. Aren't they adorable? In addition, I tailored the cards to work with the supplies I had on hand by switching the stamp set featured in the idea with a stamp set I had on hand. Quick and easy without having to wrack your brain for ideas. Again, if you have any questions about the Close to my Heart opportunity, please email me at email@example.com or visit my opportunity page.
Here are the Close to my Heart products I used to make this project.
Tomorrow's project is a cute Halloween card...stay tuned.
Today's layout is an example of the tools provided by Close to my Heart to help you succeed. I know that when I was thinking about joining, one of the concerns I had was, "I don't think I'm creative enough". I think everyone thinks that at one time or another and each one of us has times where we have a creative block and just can't come up with that next great idea. That's where Close to my Heart jumps in and provides you ideas for projects to create at workshops or gatherings. Not only do they provide these ideas, they provide them for all of their paper packets so that you, or your customers, can choose their favorite and you're guaranteed to have an idea whether or not you create it yourself. The Halloween layout above was one of these examples. It includes a picture of the layout along with a material list and cutting instructions to make your preparation easy. This is just one of the many great reasons I am happy I became a demonstrator. And you don't have to join just to run your own business. Many people join just to enjoy a discount on the products they already purchase! For more information about this wonderful opportunity, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or read more about the opportunity.

Tomorrow I have another example to show you with two adorable card projects.
Today we have another pocket page layout from my trip to North Carolina. I love these layouts when I'm running behind in my scrapbooking because they require little thinking and they still turn out beautiful. Close to my Heart has some new option in their Picture My Life scrapbooking program so I decided to pull those out. The main cards I used were from the "Going Places" Picture My Life kit which feature blues and greens with a pop of sorbet. I also pulled out the new "Overlay Black" Picture My Life kit which you seen lying over the shark picture and the picture of the cute little boy, Hunter. You don't even have to use adhesive, you just place them in the pocket, right over your picture. I love the effect it has!
Here are the Close to my Heart products I used to create this layout. Only three!
Tomorrow features a Halloween layout that doubles as a tool for success...stay tuned!
Here are my posts and projects for the week ending September 12. I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! For more information on any project you see below, simply click on the photo.
Today's video showcases some new paper products as well as the Cricut Artistry cartridge that I recently received from Close to my Heart. These items are from the new 2015-2016 Annual Inspirations and the Holiday Expressions catalog. Hope you enjoy!
The layout for today features the Cricut Artistry cartridge and the Close to my Heart paper pack of the month, Zoe. I wanted something sweet and colorful and I think this fits the bill. This week I tried photographing the layout in two separate pictures. Not sure if I like it this way or if I like them photographed together. What do you think?
Unfortunately, today's layout does not have a Cricut Design Space file because I had a Design Space Crash before I saved it. I'm SO sorry about that. It also caused me to lose all my measurements. Note to self: Save your file regularly. I'll try not to let that happen again!

Today's card could be used as a sympathy card or simply to send to someone who's on your mind. It features the September stamp of the month set called Paper Garden. The stamp of the month can be yours for only $5.00 with any $50.00 purchase or for $17.95 on it's own. It has beautiful flower and leaf elements. For the oval background, I dabbled in the new watercolor set that Close to my Heart offers. I definitely need some practice but I'm ok with how it turned out.

Tomorrow on the blog I feature a scrapbook layout.
