Art & Soul

Now you can find the first episode of Art & Soul on my webite. When you watch this first episode, you will get directions for making this special memory box, which is a great way to save and display all those momentos that don't lend themselves to a flat scrapbook page.

You can watch this show by going to my website and clicking on CTMH TV.

If you'd like to make your own, you can order the items needed (and get a 20% discount) right from my website by ordering item #w9918.

Scrapbook Cover Page

I always have a hard time making a cover page for my scrapbooks. When I saw Close To My Heart's stamp set called Today's Date, one of the sample layouts reminded my of a clock, so I improvised and created this page.
