Zoe Card Workshop

The Zoe paper packet from Close to My Heart is so versatile and has so many possibilities. I also am a firm believer in having cards available to use on a moment's notice. I tend to not create well under pressure! All the materials to create this great kit (14 total cards), including the stamp set can be purchased for $36. The paper comes pre-cut for you so all you have to do is assemble and stamp. All you need is adhesive and ink (which can also be purchased from CTMH)

Zoe Mini Album

I am having so much fun playing with the versatile Zoe paper packet from Close to My Heart. I saw this cute mini-album created by Australian CTMH consultant Doreen Watkins. This great mini-album would be perfect for a mom going back to work or a grandma to show off her grandchildren!   

To create this great mini-album I used one sheet of white daisy cardstock and then left over pieces I had from creating layouts. This would be perfect in any of the CTMH paper packets.

Paper Fundamentals Layout

I love how versatile the Paper Fundamentals from Close to My Heart are. Each paper piece has two designs, one mono-tone and one with a white patterned.

I have spots in my scrapbooks for a few one-page layouts so I used pictures from a VBS for this quick one page layout.
