Close to My Heart Craft with Heart Kit: Be Merry


I’m so excited to share my final layout of the year using the Close to My Heart Craft with Heart kit subscription! The December layouts did not disappoint with their festive colors and embellishments, and I created this 24” x 12” double-page layout about the things that make me merry at Christmas!


Supplies | Craft with Heart December Kit, Living My Best Life stamp, 'Tis the Season Compliments, Fern-stitched ribbon, white pearls

By starting with the kit elements, and adding small amounts of coordinating Close to My Heart product, I was able to create a truly customized layout design that fit perfectly with the photos and story that I wanted to share.

Whether you follow the instructions to a “t” or do your own thing with the specially coordinated kit, I know you’ll love what you create! Check out the process video that I filmed while making this layout. In it, you’ll see how I used different-sized photos than the layout example, added a bit more embellishment using the beautiful 'Tis the Season CTMH products and stamped words that fit with my layout with the wonderful CTMH Boutique Scrapbooking Day-to-Day stamp. I also create pockets underneath my photos to add hidden journaling, a technique I use often.
