Silver & Gold Blog Hop




Welcome to our Silver & Gold Blog Hop!  We will be showcasing our Silver & Gold paper collection with various projects created by talented Close to My Heart consultants.  If you are visiting from Cheryl's blog then you are on the right track.



Did you know there are coordinating Picture My Life Cards to the Silver & Gold papers?  I grabbed a set and wanted to see how much I could make out of one package.


I started with this scrapbook layout.  Yes, these are last years pictures.  It is never to late to scrap your memories!  I used White and Pewter cardstock as the base and Pebble as an accent color under my photos.  I used Gold Ribbon you can find in the Basics Ribbon Pack as my embellishment.  


I didn't stop there!  Using our Basic Tags thin cuts I cut out a few tags.  I was able to get 3 from one PML card, with a little strip leftover I could use for other projects.  I used the gold ribbon and gray and gold ribbon from the Basic Ribbon Pack to tie on to my tags.  The Basic Ribbon pack is on sale until the end of the month!  You can check out the sale HERE


One of my favorite things to do is use PML cards to create greeting cards.  It is so fast and easy and they make beautiful cards.  I simply cut down the larger PML's to fit onto our white card bases.  The smaller PML's I layered with some of our Basic Fundamental patterned papers (they are on sale too!).  I added some Red Gems.

I have quite a few cards leftover to create even more!  The Silver & Gold Picture My Life cards are a great deal at only $6.95 for a package of 36 cards!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!

Christmas Gifts - 3 Different Designs in 1 Video - Facebook LIVE Video #6




Beary Christmas Workshop - In this video I demonstrate how to create 3 different Christmas gifts using the Beary Christmas Workshop Your Way Kit (item # G1137). Something I forgot to explain in the video, you can make up to 26 gifts from just one kit! You can make 2 mugs from 1 piece of patterned paper. You can make 2 Nugget boxes from 1 piece of patterned paper. You can make 1 gift card holder from 1 piece of cardstock. Cut your big pieces first then use your leftovers to decorate your gifts. I will post more pictures soon to give you ideas on how to decorate. FACEBOOK LIVE SPECIAL: Place an order on my website https://juliescott.closetomyheart.com/default.aspx from NOW until the end of the year, December 31st 2017, and I will send you a surprise gift! Let me know if you have any questions on these projects. I have a few more ideas to share with you for the holidays, so be sure to subscribe to my channel for more Christmas gift ideas!
