CTMH Australasian Cats and Bats/Falling For You Blog Hop


Hello and welcome aboard our Cats and Bats/Falling For You Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Shaunna Richards – Passionate About Pages then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s Featured collection Cats and Bats.

I am so excited to be finally playing with this range. It perfectly suits school photos! Most people see Halloween however I see Maths with all the origami and the colours match my childrens school!

I have made this page using the Cats and Bats Paper Pack the perfect summary school album page of my sons year at school. I have used one of our amazing ideas books for the layout making it super easy to pop this page together.


The black and white strip is a zip strip found at the top of all CTMH patterned papers and are great for embellishing any page because they are designed to coordinate!


This exclusive Cats and Bats range is only available until the end of the year. Such a flexible range.


This Workshop Your Way collection can be yours for just $42.50.

Cards for Cancer


I am so very excited to announce the release of this line of $4 cards I have made using the beautiful Close To My Heart range. 

100% of the money from these cards will go direct to the 2017 Great Cycle Challenge that my brother in law Randall Oakley is participating in.  He is going to cycle 1500kms in October to raise money for childrens cancers. Such an amazing achievement for him to undertake. 

Postage is available for up to 3 cards in an envelope for only $3. 

Thanks so much for helping me to help Randall and in turn help childrens all over Australia fighting this ugly disease.

Here is a closer look at each of the cards. If you would like to order please email crsds@bigpond.com to let me know which ones you are after and how many. They are each numbered in the picture above. Payment can be made by clicking here
