Sweet Memories from our Salt Lake City Convention

Today, I wanted to share with you a special picture that deserved a special layout. 


In June, I traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah to the Close To My Heart Convention. I spend four days with some of the most lovely people in the world, many are in the photo above. These are my people, the Scattered Hearts team and our leader, Tina Sutton (holding the white heart in the front row).

In addition to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones, a highlight of convention is playing with all the new products. This layout was one of our projects and it uses papers, embellishments and stamp sets from the new 2017 Annual Inspirations Idea Book. I love how this layout has lots of layers created by a combination of papers, stickers, Cricut-cuts and pearls.

Recipes for Featured August Stamp of the Month Projects

Each month, my Close To My Heart features beautiful projects made by home office artists using the current stamp of the month. This month's projects are perfect to help make the first day of school a big success!


As you know, most teachers operate on a very low budget and supplement supplies out of their own project. Wouldn't your child's teacher love that bundle of pictures with a handmade tag to show your appreciation. Another idea is to create one of these featured cards for a personal note to slip in your child's lunch box or back pack to let them know you are thinking of them through the day. And of course the layout is a must to show off those adorable first day of school pictures.

Below I'd added the list of projects needed to create these projects.

Remember the Stamp of the Month, School Year, is only available in August 2017. In addition, you can get it for just $5 with a $50 purchase. So look over these supply lists, make your list and then be sure to add the stamp of the month.


Keep in mind that the Jack paper pack and some of the other products in these project retire at the end of this month. Retiring items are now while supplies last and items are starting to run out, so don't wait to place your order. Also, when you order $26.95 of items from the Jack product line in August, I'll send you a bonus stamp set!


Be sure to review all of my August specials which I posted earlier this month before you submit your order. Please let me know if you have any questions about these projects or the product used. 
Keep creating,
Rebecca
