This super cute Slide & Stand card is easier to make than it looks.
All you need is a sheet of cardstock, a sheet of patterned paper and your latest favourite stamp. I've used October 2021's Stamp of the Month, Wildflower Friendship.

Join a class
I offer face to face and online events and classes. They vary in length from a few hours to full weekends. Fun album challenges can span several weeks.
Every event is suitable for beginners through to advanced scrapbookers - you will find something new to learn each time you join in.
My lovely customers tell me the laughter and community is as important as the tips and techniques I'm sharing.
Close To My Heart Products
I am a Maker with Close To My Heart , selling their products because I know the quality is outstanding. I am continually delighted by the beautiful array of papers, stamps, thin-cuts and embellishments they offer. There is always something new and on trend to excite us all.
Monthly specials offer variety on a budget for those wanting to try new things.
I love the VIP program which showers shoppers with free product of their choosing. Regular shoppers also have the opportunity to join a hostess club and earn half price items from me. This is an awesome way to get those big ticket items you desire.
Start your own Close To My Heart Business
If you are a committed memory keeper or paper crafter, chances are you’ve thought about turning that passion into a business.
I'd love to share a simple system to get started making sales to the people you know and love. This is a fun business that you can run part time around your other commitments or work up to full time.
I haven't wiped the smile from my face since I first joined in July 2013. Check all the details about becoming a Close To My Heart Maker and get back to me if you have questions. I'd love to have a chat to see if we are a good fit for each other.
I fund raise for three of my favourite charities over the course of the year.
Operation Smile is Close To My Heart's chosen charity. Funds are raised throughout the year by adding a small donation to your order (every cent counts) and the purchase of exclusive stamp sets. Create a "Smiles for Christmas" gift in November's fundraiser.
Alzheimer's WA is very dear to my heart. My lovely mum and my mother-in-law have been living with Alzheimer's for many years and the knowledge and support shared by this organisation has been so helpful. Join me for the 'Stories I Love' project in June.
Save the Children is dedicated to making the lives of children better. They work here in Australia and internationally on a variety of community based and aid based programs. Make a special album for a child close to you in the 'You are Loved' fundraiser in September.
