Don't You Just Love it When....

So I decided to buy myself something I had been wanting for awhile. When it comes to my craft supplies I'm pretty sure none of my family has a clue what I would want or need (or what I already have for that matter). So hoping to receive a new Cricut cartridge as a Christmas gift was not going to cut it. I took matters into my own hands and just placed the order myself.

I ordered the Close to my Heart Exclusive Artbooking cartridge. Let me tell you, it has way more than what I was expecting! There's a font, Scrapbook page layouts, Whole and half page overlays, mini album pages, page titles and card sentiments, icons, borders and so much more!

I can't wait to start creating with it and share those projects with you!

January is a special month for papercrafting,

In celebration of National Papercrafting Month, Close To My Heart invites you to reflect on the things that make you who you are and on what you want to accomplish in the coming months. Then, with the help of the Year >> Noted paper kit, record your experiences and goals!

During the month of January, with a qualifying purchase of $50, you are eligible to purchase the exclusive Year >> Noted paper kit (which has a retail value of over $24 USD / $27 CAD for only $5—that’s over 80% off retail! Or, for an additional $5, you can order the Year >> Noted paper kit with an accompanying My Creations™ kraft mini book. The paper kit for both options includes a C-size stamp set, stickers, cardstocks, and B&T Duos™ papers, all specially designed to coordinate with the My Creations™ kraft mini book so you can have a yearlong scrapbooking experience. This means you will receive over $34 USD / $37 CAD worth of product for only $10 if you purchase the kit with the accompanying mini book! But the fun doesn’t end there—included on the sticker sheet, you will find a large golden seal. Once the year is done and all the pages are filled, seal up your book and create a mini time capsule that you can open years from now. Remember, this deal is only available for January, so make sure to get your own Year >> Noted paper kit today for the perfect start to a crafty year!

And last, but not least I want to share with you my "word for the new year" it has become a tradition (for me the past 3 years) to select a word to represent your goal for the new year. You may have seen this around facebook, you may even do this yourself?!
So my word - gratitude
I'm keeping a gratitude art journal and I'm sharing my joy all over social media when I can. You'll see my Twitter, facebook and Instagram posts with the Hashtag #ArtitudeofGratitude
I believe changing your outlook will change your quality of life.

Do you choose a word for the new year? If so I'd love you to share it in the comments :)
