Are you feeling merry today? Well, it’s November now and you might as well get used to the Christmas jingles and décor every way you look. For me, the Christmas season doesn’t start until a certain coffee shop releases their holiday cups… That’s right. I get giddy inside and I instantly want to hoard keep my first empty cup in order to scrapbook it later. I am immediately ready to tackle the season head on while I fill up my planner with parties and traditions. It’s pretty much the most exciting time of the year! Isn’t that right? Fa La La La La! You should be singing Fa La La La La, if you noticed how the branches of the tree were raised in the photo above. That’s right, its an amazing framelit from Stampin’ Up! that coordinates with the Peaceful Pines stamp set. Quite easy and quite amazing. Christmas…

Hi everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here today with a card I made for a special friend who is going through a difficult time battling breast cancer.  Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I would share this card with Canadian Scrapbooker readers. I pulled out my Close To My Heart watercolour supplies and pink cardstock and got busy! Did you know CTMH has all these wonderful products for you to indulge your inner artist? First I used a couple of the pink watercolours to paint the 3 heart balloons. After this dried, I outlined the balloons with a black permanent fine-tipped marker and also drew balloon string words. I wanted to add more pink colour to the plain white background so I brushed some wet watercolour pinks onto a piece of plastic and then pressed the card face down into it to pick up the paints.
