10 pages scrapbooking workshop 

Hi everyone I am super excited to release my newest 10 pages scrapbooking workshop using the Fresh Air range from Close To My Heart. 

This is a great event where we work through the workshop together and no one is left behind.  
These papers work perfectly with scout, holidays, camping or country photos.  However I have actually used them with Easter photos and it looks great! 

Registrations for all events are here or by copying this link 

Registration closes on 1st August 2018. 

Retiring CTMH products list – Don’t miss out! 

Hi everyone,  

The retiring list has just gone live snd I wanted to share to avoid you missing out on something you love. 

What I recommend you do is go through both your Annual Inspirations book (the big fat book) and the Seasonal Expressions book and circle what you love and then reference to the list. 

You can order by clicking here or by using this link

Please remember after the 1st July the Australian Government has introduced 10% GST on all purchases from overseas and this will effect all purchases from Close to My Heart. Beat the price increase while you can. 

Happy Crafting

I feel like I am playing Jenga!! 

Hi everyone I am working through my social media platforms at the moment and gaining clarity. Feels a little like Jenga but I am aiming to make your connection with me much easier. 

My blog, this is it, is to be for inviting you to special events, blog hops and of course inspiration. 

My business Facebook page will no longer advertise events however it will share inspiration and specials. 

My updates group on Facebook will share workshops, events and specials. 

My premade store is where you can book in for events and pay online at 

My website is my Close To My Heart site where you can shop at any home for craft supplies and have then delivered to your door from anywhere in Australia. Let me know if you plan to order over $200 so I can set you up a party where you will get a minimum of $30 free cash to spend! 

My Instagram as always is for the pretties  lots of inspiration! 

And … I am always here for you.  You can email at or send a message at any time using any of my social media platforms. 

Happy crafting
