Hello there! Recently my friends at Close to My Heart contacted me about their Craft with Heart kit, and asked if I wanted to give it a try. I'm all about kits that help me get my memories documented quickly, and after I saw the kit images, I was all for it! These kits are beautifully designed, and include the paper, stickers and die-cuts that you'll need, as well as instructions for how to complete two 24" x 12" layouts in each kit. All you need to do is add photos and your journaling. These kits also coordinate beautifully with their gorgeous paper collections included in the new Holiday Expressions Idea Book. There are also three different subscription options, so be sure to check out all of the details on the Craft with Heart website.
I started out with the September kit, and decided to document a special family wedding, because the colors in the kit were perfect for all of the brightly colored clothes (and accessories!) that we were wearing for the wedding day. Sticking to the kit and instructions would have created a beautiful layout, but I wanted to take it a step further by adding more embellishment and (of course!) STAMPING! It's just what I do! I'm so happy with how my final layout turned out:
This kit was perfect for documenting a special day, using my own photos and memories! You can see what the layout would have looked like had I stuck to the kit instructions, and find out how I had to change things up a bit to reflect the photos that I had on hand, in this process video:
Be sure to check out the Craft with Heart kit subscription options, and stay tuned for another layout next month, using the beautiful October kit!
Note: I was asked to be a Craft with Heart Ambassador by Close to my Heart, and I chose to do that because their kits are lovely, and I think that they will be great for you, my blog readers and video followers. I would only recommend product that I myself would use and enjoy. I hope you enjoy it, too!
