Happy Everything Operation Smile Blog Hop


Welcome to our Operation Smile blog hop!


You can change the life of a child with just one stamp set.  When you purchase the D-sized Happy Everything stamp set at full retail price anytime from now to August 31st,  2015, Close to My Heart will donate $3* of the proceeds to Operation Smile.  Since it's founding in 1982, Operation Smile has performed over 220,000 surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children.  It only takes an hour for a volunteer medical teams to perform these life-altering surgeries that will give children confidence for a lifetime." 
Please take a moment to visit the Operation Smile website and make a donation.


 If you have arrived here from Nikka's blog your going the right path.  If you get lost or wish to start at the beginning of the hop see Melinda's blog for the complete list.  This month 31 consultants are participating in this featured hop.

This is the  featured stamp set. 
One of the happiest days in a parents life is the birth of their child, and every child looks forward to their birthday.  Smiles make these memories  happy days.


I've made a birthday card to showcase this set, yet you could also use the set for invitations, and for scrapbook pages to emphasize happiness.  





I used only current Close to My Heart items.  
  • Cardstock:  Lagoon, Smoothie, & Pear
  • My Reflections B & T*:  Blossom
  • Exclusive Inks:  Lagoon
  • Tools:  Dot embossing Folder

I adore the blossom paper pack it's a favorite among consultants and customers.   I'm personally picking up another pack since it is on our retiring list along with many other fab products.  Make sure you grab your favorites before they are gone.  

Now it's time to hop to the next blog.  Your on your way to Krista's blog were your going to see more fun artwork!  

Thank You for viewing our hop!

On another note I'm off to our annual convention, which is at Disneyland this year.   I'm looking forward to the cooler weather 80's beat 105's!  I'll get a sneak peak at what will be arriving this Fall, so stay tuned!

Life is Wonderful



Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop brought to you by-
  This month our stamp set is Life is Wonderful (S1507).  It's a nice set that lends itself more towards scrapbooking then cards, but that's just my opinion.



  If you have arrived here from Angela's blog your going the right path.  If you get lost or wish to start at the beginning of the hop see Melinda's blog for the complete list.  This month 46 consultants are participating in this hop.

I lost a day this month, so I was super surprised when I realized I needed to get something together for our blog hop.  I'm always on the edge with getting things done due to health, but I try to make sure I have my item done on time. This is a fast and easy layout that I put together using the Reflections pattern book.  I used the Title Topper-Photo's pattern.  The pattern books are a great  fabulous resource and a must in any card maker or scrapbooker's library.  All 6 books and the 2 Make it From Your Heart volumes are available on your consultants website.

I stayed in Korea for a month with my oldest daughter and her husband...a remarkable experience.

The page is still lacking a bit of journaling, but I usually keep that hidden. I'm a goof ball and I like to keep my thoughts and handwriting elsewhere.

I used all Close to My Heart items:  Crystal Blue Cardstock, Wanderful My Reflections Paper Pack, Life is Wonderful stamp set, Wanderful WOTG stamp set, Black Stars, , Exclusive Inks Black, & Gypsy.  If you would like to see more exclusive Close to My Heart products visit your consultants website or mine at www.priscilla.ctmh.com.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our hop.  Please continue on to Jacquelin's blog to see her artwork.
