Close To My Heart Sangria Card set and stand | Extravaganza Convention project

I had the privilege of creating artwork for the Close To My Heart Convention 2015 this past summer. This is one of the projects I made using the new Sangria paperpack and coordinating embellishments.  My topic was the Base & Bling jewelry line with CTMH and in this project I show how you can use this product in your card making and paper crafting in general.

I donated this item to the Operation Smile silent auction.

Thank you so much for watching!

Filofax Pages - February 2015

I realized it has been a while since I posted so I decided to share my Filofax pages for February 2015. I started to use a Filofax about 1 1/2 years ago to try and organize myself with respect to my scrapbook events and Youtube channel in particular. I decorate my weekly pages and I have made some videos on them. Let me know if you would like me to post more of the videos here or you are welcome to check them all out in my Filofax playlist on my youtube channel here.

I hope this gives you inspiration and ideas for your own agenda or daytimer that you own or are thinking of getting. It is so fun and a great way to use some of your scrapbook product!

Thanks for watching!
