Father's Day Cards with Jack

I love love the Jack collection! First of all, it contains most of my favourite colours/designs - black, white, grey, red & plaid. And since I live in a house full of boys (who are my main focus of scrapping) this is just the perfect collection for me!

I decided to make some Father's Day cards using the Jack Paper Pack and Jack - Cardmaking stamp set. Love that little bear and all of his accessories!


I can't wait to make some more 'manly' cards with this Paper Pack!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jack Paper Pack - X7222B - $12.75 CAD
Jack - Cardmaking Stamp - C1678 - $17.75 CAD

Dreamin' Big Layouts

Hi everyone! I'm here today to share a few layouts I made with Close To My Heart's Dreamin' Big collection. I love this collection, it's so perfect for so many different types of photos! I've been using it with some photos from our trip up to my parent's cabin last summer. The colours are fabulous, and the complements pack has such great sentiments and stickers.

Here's a look at Layout #1


Layout #2


Layout #3


I love getting the Workshops Your Way kit - it has all the elements you need to create great pages. I still have a bunch of it left, and some more pictures from our trip that I want to scrap too! I'm thinking I'm going to do some pocket pages to get a bunch of the pictures in there :)

Supplies Used (all Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted)

April Specials and Stamp of the Month

Wow, it's hard to believe we're into April already! It feels like it was just January 1st a few weeks ago. We've been having some beautiful weather around here lately, and it's making me excited about sunny days spent outside coming in the (hopefully) near future!

Also exciting - Close To My Heart is offering their Cut Above layout kits for 50% off for the month of April!


These kits are awesome for beginner scrapbookers (they take all of the guess work out of putting a spread together), or even experienced scrapbookers looking to put together a gorgeous spread in a flash.

Choose between two designs—Little One and Forever & Always—and then follow the simple assembly instructions to create your beautiful two-page layout in minutes. Add even more memories using the coordinating pocket cards and pocket Memory Protectors included in the kit. You’re going to love how quickly you can preserve your memories with Cut Above.

And a bonus for new consultants! Anyone who signs up in April will receive their choice of either the Little One or the Forever & Always Cut Above™ Layout Kit in their New Consultant Kit at no additional cost to them! If you're interested in joining my team, let me know!

*Offer available 1 April–30 April 2017 while supplies last. Shipping and handling assessed on retail value.

And now, a look at the April Stamp of the Month, Flock Together:


Those little quails are so adorable! And I love the sentiments for either cards or a layout. I haven't played around with this set yet, but I'm looking forward to it! Here are some examples of some work done with it:


If you spend $50 in my shop, you can get the SOTM for only $6, or can purchase it full price this month for $23.  You can find these and so much more here: www.craftwithnicole.closetomyheart.ca
