 Clubs are starting up right now for September through January 2017!  Why not give it a go for 5 months to see how it works for you?

Just a little note:  I have been offering clubs since the early 2000′s and have had hundreds of participants over the years.  Some have been with me for a long, long time and others take a break and return when it fits their schedule. It’s a testament to a quality CLUB program that has worked like a charm for this many years.  I love it when people are excited by my creations and can’t wait to get started!  It’s very rewarding and I commit to creating 6 scrapbook pages (or more) each month and have added card workshops to the program as well.

FLORENCE is the August Kit of the Month

This is one of those kits that you can create a myriad of layouts using the products from Florence Workshop Your Way.  NOTE:  it RETIRES in two weeks (8/31) or while supplies last.  Take a look at the papers here:

Florence paper

The colors work for school (red, yellow, blue, flaxen) and also a trip to Mexico (thanks Deb G!). These are soft patterns so they are easily combined for a variety of layouts (or cards). Look at this page CTMH created for a road trip using the June Stamp of the Month (A Long Way Home):

The Long Way Home lo

Here are the first two pages using Florence Kit of the Month:

Florence 2

I really enjoyed thinking ‘out of the box’ with this kit and handcrafted 6 uniquely styled pages with extra personality (at least I think so!).  Check out pages 3 & 4 here:

Florence 3

Love how MY GIRL came out.  I had to think about cutting some letters to make the title but it worked!

Florence 4

My Bonus pages, ALL BOY:  I turned over some of the kraft complements to make mud splats as well as stamping a few with the D1660 Ink blot stamp set.

Florence 5

To order the supplies for FLORENCE:

Florence/A Bunch of Love Card Workshop:  If you want ADDED VALUE and enjoy creating cards, I used my scraps leftover from Florence to make all of these (and you can create even more):

A Bunch of Love 3

You can easily add on a few things (shared in the shopping list), but the stamp set I used, A Bunch of Love is perfect for many types of cards/sentiments you need:

A Bunch of Love 1

Plus if you own a cuttlebug, big shot or die cutting machine, the THIN CUTS makes stamping a breeze!

A Bunch of Love 2

I enjoyed using our Watercolor Paints (left) & Shin Han Markers (right) to create two of each card design with each method of coloring in. You’ll want the small round water brush to dip into the paint.  I love this new tool! Here’s a sample:

Back from Ireland and new WEBSITE Look for you!

FB_IMG_1470660048464

This was a trip of a lifetime!  Rick and I explored Ireland for 2 weeks and enjoyed so much of the Emerald Isle.  40 shades of green can be found in the meadows and pastures.  Millions of sheep dot the countryside along the cliffs and valleys.  Cattle afford the creamiest butter to be made and tasted and the breads, scones, desserts … scrumpcious!  The people are so warm, inviting, friendly and sincere. This place should be at the top of your bucket list and we thoroughly enjoyed the finest hotels and food while visiting.  The top of my list would be Mount Juliet (we ate at their Michelin star restaurant and the grounds are stunning!) and who could resist a night or two in Ashford Castle?  Bagpipes await you!

A NEW LOOK … MY WEBSITE has some fantastic features

Here’s a very helpful and useful tutorial on all the *new* features that adorn my Close to my Heart website that recently went through an overhaul.  I think you’re going to love the *new* changes:

NEW OBA page

In the picture above, each # is explained below: 

  1. New WEB addresslynncomo.closetomyheart.com … (you may want to bookmark this)
  2. New SEARCH button … you’ll want to know where it is because it’s been moved
  3. Shopping CART now STORES your “wish list” for up to 30 days!  Fantastic! (See more below)
  4. LOG In section … this is where you can log in with your password to find your saved items in your cart (if you stored any within 30 days).
  5. The front Marquee (photo of promotion) changes … see these little circles? Each one showcases something different with beautiful artwork and links.
  6. Stamp of the Month along the bottom for the current month …
  7. Join one of Lynn’s Gatherings … Hostesses and Monthly Club Members will use this LINK to JOIN an online show/gathering.  It helps a hostess accumulate more rewards when someone places an order under their name.
  8. Most important … SHOP … click on it to get started!

When you click on SHOP, you’ll be brought to this page for categories. I love this *new* look and itemized section of interests. The page automatically defaults to the first link (KITS), but click on the left side of specific products you may want to investigate and learn about.  I like this clean, simple look and finding things should be easier than before.

Shop link

The next TAB at the top, PROMOTION has two drop down boxes.  It will always showcase the current month’s special and stamp of the month, which are exclusive and available during the time frame.

  • Note how the Marquee changed which showcases the current promotion, “Basically the Best.”  
  • You could also click on the Stamp of the Month for easy reference. 

Promotion Link

The third TAB, “PRODUCTS” consists of 4 links:

  1. Idea books … you can easily view our catalog online by clicking on this link.
  2. Workshops … Did you know the current kits have workshops with photos and instructions for you?  All you need to do is click on the artwork/class CTMH has created if you.  See photo below (note: my signature artwork is not found here, but on my blog @ LynnComo.com, under My Creations Tab).
  3. Cricut Collections ... you’re going to love this one if you are a CTMH Cricuteer!  You’ll find Comparison Charts, Tips and Tricks, our Collections for sale as well as Sample Shapes and Indexes for you to print out per collection!  Now that’s amazing!
  4. How To Patterns Books … links you to our fabulous HOW TO books (Make It From Your Heart; Magic; Imagine, Cherish, Reflections, Cherish & Wishes) with recipes and corrections available to you.

Workshop Link

The LAST TAB, “What We Do” showcases the white highlighted area for “Be A Hostess,” “Be A Consultant,” “Operation Smile.”  You can click on each one for the details of that category.

  • Did you know we support Operation Smile and every $250 collected offers a a great smile to a child in need?  See below for more information.

What we Do link

When you place an order on my site, you always have the option to ROUND UP or add a donation to this worthy cause.  At convention, we saw a video where our VP, Monica Wihongi visited and helped OS in another country.  Truly amazing work and so simple an operation that is not afforded by these people who live there.  Only YOU and I can make a difference …

OS link

Also in the “What We Do” section is a great resource for you:  click on CTMH TV link.  There are tutorials, videos, how to ideas, artwork and more showcased here.  You probably had no idea it’s been hiding on our websites for years …

  • When you click on CTMH TV under “What We Do,” you’ll see a variety of ‘channels’ you can click on.  All the RED STARS are a part of this section.
  • As you click on your interest, there will be “Related Videos” for you to check out.
  • I think you are going to be so surprised by the amount of videos and tips that are showcased here.
  • What I enjoy most … it’s all in ONE PLACE for you to peruse instead of googling a title, file, category, etc.  Easy, peasy!

CTMH TV

Created these with my scraps

If you own the Close To My Hearts How To Program IMAGINE,  as well as Calypso Workshop Your Way, you can easily create this two page spread (with a little tweaking).  It’s the Monologue layout .. one of my favorites!  I used the E1030 Handwritten Print Alphabet stamp set to create “Coolin’ Off.”

20160704_165842

Why stop there if you have more paper to work with? I had some of the ‘suns’ precut and cut “fun in the sun” (all from Artbooking Cricut Collection).  I really liked the sun glasses zip strip … so what do you do?  How about this fun layout using 3×12′s and 2×12′s in the bold stripe pattern.  Cotton candy cardstock under the zip strips and the photos wells are 4×4 and 4×6 from the scraps.  By the time you create all 12 pages, nothing but confetti is left!  Love consuming it all!

20160704_165905

Calypso is our Kit of the Month for JULY.  Here’s the original 8 pages I created first before the extras above:

Calypso 1

This kit is a summer keeper and will be retiring on August 31st!  So, I would suggest buying a kit now if this is your kind of thing.  I’m not sure when I’ll be seeing you at a Crop and can’t guarantee I’ll have much left in my inventory until then.

Here’s the details for Calypso:

I can’t take the credit for these beautiful cards, but you could enjoy creating ALL of 20 ideas using Calypso, stamps … details in the shopping list above:

Calypso Card Workshop

Lastly, this Album Project (21 pages in all) was designed by Chris Lothian using the WHIMSY Fundamental Collection (but you could use any of the four fundamentals collections).  Here’s a sample of a two page spread:

Whimsy 1

Isn’t it pretty?  The workshop includes a Title page for your album and 20 pages (that’s 10 (2) page spreads).

As of July 31st, the whole Paper Fundamental line is RETIRING.  All the Cardstock combinations (Enchantment is already sold out); the coordinating sticker packs (4 sticker sheets with LOTS of letters, titles, icons, labels and more) PLUS the Fundamental Assortment line (8 colors) that consists of so many wonderful items (6 bows, wood labels, 8 tabs and a glitter sheet filled with peel and stick stars, hearts, circles, triangles in 3 sizes each):

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!

When you are a scrapbooker ….

there are a few things I find are important to note when taking photographs.  Now, I’m not a professional photographer, nor claim to be one.  But I do feel like a scrapping queen (been doing it a long, long time) and just thought I would talk about it a little.

20160606_070057

You are probably going to be taking a lot of photos this summer, right?  And if not you, then the person taking the photo (with you).  I want you to remind yourself (he/she) to turn the camera and take some VERTICAL shots.  For some reason, people have an aversion to turning the camera … and it really is simple but not a reflex action.  So, a 90 degree turn will do wonders for your layouts!

pumpkin picking

Step away from the object!  Ha! And get some landscaping shots.  I absolutely love 5×7, 6×8 or 8×10′s of fabulous places, interesting things that need to be enlarged, not printed in 4×6′s.  Larger photos can also make a great impact when telling your story of a particular place, scene or celebration.  Perfect for a Title page of your album too. And with 5×7 flip flaps coming in August, the more the merrier … Woo Hoo!

Hawaii 1aa

Tiny toes, hands, feet and oh … details!  Yes!  Sometimes you want to capture the little things (in the case below … priceless facial expressions), the details that describe your story in vivid color or black and white. It can be quite stunning to have these printed in 2×2′s, 3×3′s or 4×4′s squares, and aligned on a page.

20160526_132116-1_wm

Even the littlest details of your vacation, places you travel, road trip, signs, food … oh yeah!  You get me on this?  I love food photos!  LOL … but seriously .. it adds depth, style and true details you can’t write about and see the same way.

20160607_135253

Remember … to capture a ‘photo layout’ in your minds eye when taking shots. Meaning … don’t take 1 or 2 photos and move on to something new. Try to take a sequence of photos that you are truly excited about and think about a layout design (or if you are in my Club and do the pages, think of the photos wells).  I usually try to take a dozen photos (give or take) and then weed thru and only use the best ones.

An example of this would be taking only 1 or 2 shots at halloween.  What am I supposed to do with that?  Scrap it… how?  Give me treats, treaters, candy bags, kid crowd out on the town, visit to gram’s, a fantastic home decorated to celebrate the holiday.  THAT’s what I’m talking about …. BUT unfortunately, I didn’t take a photo of the completed layout. Trust me .. it was cute!  But here’s the original layout and I added my photos AFTER I had created the two page spread.  Scrapping is so much faster this way (I’m always using up my Kit of the Month pages when I can.)

Scaredy Cat 1a

But here’s another example where I did what I said NOT to do. I love, Love, LOVE this layout below.  I had only a few prints of the scene on the left and only a few prints of the scene on the right.  I just wasn’t gong to create 4 pages (3 on each layout … geez, Houdini I’m not!). So using the paper, a few colors, I designed a layout where the TITLE helped to bring it together.  It amazes me that it all worked! I adore when that happens and I use up my scraps too!

20160516_133124Oh, that’s another thing though .. less is more,  Do you really need to print out 5 photos of the same thing?  Yes, if you are capturing a sequence of movement or something like panoramic scenes.  But 5 photos of  the same look or view? Wouldn’t two really good ones for printing be better?  Add perhaps more detailed shots or closeups would help tell the story.  Below is another layout I did some time ago but I did have a lot more photos to choose from, but narrowed it down to these.

DSC_0011

I hear so many people comment on my albums at a crop and the details of the layouts.  How the photos are the main stage of the layout and everything looks really put together (thank you for that!).  I’m not a professional photographer, but I do like to change things up, use a variety of sizes, only PRINT what I need (never 250-500 photos at a time) and enjoy vertical photos even more than horizontal. HA!

By the way … did you notice how many 4×6 photos I had used in the layouts above? Change it up and be versatile with your photos as you add them to your layouts. It definitely becomes more interesting than a splatter of 4×6′s all over the pages.  Just my two cents on the subject … :)

lensSo, as you look through the lens, try to change it up and see things through the perspective of a scrapbooker.  Enjoy the journey, create an adventure and have the photos bring the story to life!

Happy Scrapping!

PS:  If you are a one photo kind of scrapper, my hats off to you! I find that a challenge to do with so much space.  Maybe I’ll get there someday …
