Tips and Tricks of the Trade: Albums

On my Facebook Business Page, I recently posted about a fantastic deal as well as a Tip and Trick of the Trade on Albums.  (Note:  if you would like to LIKE my Facebook page, please click here on this link.)

Many of you take your good albums with you to the crops to fill up as you work. I’ve been having conversations with some of you about this and how you could use a D RING Binder as a “WORK IN PROGRESS” album to bring back and forth (instead of wearing/tearing your good albums).

Here’s why:  If you buy a D Ring binder/album and add the value pack (25) of top loading page protectors, you can scrap anything (freeing you up to put any layouts in a D Ring without being in order). Then you can choose to move them into your actual GOOD albums when you are ready to showcase them as finished pages.

If this sounds like an excellent idea to you, there are 3 canvas D RINGS binders on CLEARANCE for $17.50 (originally $34.95) on my site @

Now, that’s a great deal and an excellent Tip and Trick of the Trade when you scrapbook your layouts.  Make a D ring binder work for you!  Make it the place to store both completed layouts … or if you are in my Kit of the Month Club, to store your artwork and plug in the photos.  Keeping your layouts available to you, will make it even easier to add your photos, or even duplicate a layout again using different papers and embellishments.

I hope you found this helpful.  There are quite a bit of deeply discounted items in the Clearance Section on my website here. 


A New Start is in Full Swing

It’s been almost 3 months since I’ve been off the social media grid because of ‘BOT Bugs that Bite’ and leave severe damage behind.   It’s been a very long, frustrating and challenging road to see my way through.  Even though my old site was up and running since 12/24, many … oh so many … OF YOU were not receiving my posts since the day I thought my worries were over!  Well, how much worse could it get?  We’re not even going to go there …!

With the help of some wonderful friends (Sherry & Mark: you both have been so KIND and GIVING, and I am SO THANKFUL), we had to extinguish the old site (too many BUGS to fix). They have spent hours upon hours helping me get back on track and to this point.  So … CHANGE is GOOD and I will be starting off with a simple blog (for now) which will be ‘somewhat under construction.’  Please be patient as I work through a new system and create a site that is better maintained, easier to navigate and striving to be ‘mobile’ friendly too!  I can’t wait!  So, thank you for hanging in there and I look forward to sharing Close to My Heart with you on a regular basis soon!

In addition, you can LIKE me on FACEBOOK on this LINK as I continue to use this media while under construction.

I’m still OPEN for Business on my Website @
