 Happy New Year! Wishing everyone a Healthy 2021!!!

I'm beginning this year with the first of the new papers from the New Close To My Heart catalog. This collection is Happiness Lives Here. What a great way to start a new year with the words Happiness Live Here. It's a good thought to keep in your head considering the trying times we've been going through. 

I've created several videos showing you layouts and cards that are not using the scrapbook and card workshops we offer. The first video is a cutting guide that is in real time, meaning after you purchase the papers, cardstock, you can cut along with me! The second video shows the scrapbook layouts being put together. In the third video I put together 10 cards for various situations.
