Happy National Scrapbook Month!
How are you celebrating this fun month of memory making and memory keeping? One of the ways I celebrate is to host the annual Scrapbook Fiesta event and share some creative time with friends. Scrapbook Fiesta is a fabulously festive day full of scrapbooking and crafting for everyone. After all, what could be better than a day set aside where you can create to your hearts content and visit with friends at the same time?
These are a couple of pictures from last year’s celebration. As you can see, Scrapbook Fiesta is truly and fantastic way to celebrate and there is something about sharing a crafting day with your buddies (new and old) that makes for a lot of happy moments. We laugh, create, and have a wonderful time together.
I provide plenty of space for crafting, lunch, music, give-aways on the hour, along with Cricut machines, embossing machines, fonts, stamps, papers…everything at your fingertips. You just bring your basic tools, supplies, photographs, and project materials that you have pulled together for the things you want to work on during the day.
Scrapbook Fiesta is a great time to get photos on pages and add completed stories to your albums, but it is a perfect time to make cards or any other paper crafting projects you would like. There is even free Wi-Fi so you can come and make scrapbook pages using Studio J, Close To My Heart’s online scrapbooking option.

These are the scrapbook pages that I have designed to be a part of this day. A full Workshop Kit with everything to make these pages is included with your Scrapbook Fiesta registration.
I chose a bright color palette for this year that coordinates with the new CTMH Carnival Washi Tape set that is shown below. I really like the variety of tape widths and messages that are included in the washi tape set. I also chose some die-cut shapes and titles that I cut on CTMH Crictut cartridges that have a little “signs of today” with hashtag titles and accents. The pages are easy to put together and definitely have a lot of possibilities for preserving so many different types of memories.
Special Note: If you are unable to attend Scrapbook Fiesta, you can order a Workshop Kit To Go for $20 (plus tax and shipping) The Workshop Kit will come with everything you need to make all four pages.
Do you have scrapbook pages that are ready for photos or photos you need to get off of your cell phones and computers? How about unfinished crafting projects sitting around your house? Or has it just been too long since you’ve had some time set aside to get into your creative groove? Scrapbook Fiesta is a fantastic day to just enjoy doing the creative things you like to do.
If you are in the Boise area I would love for you to come and enjoy this year’s Scrapbook Fiesta. It’s going to be great fun.

A couple of SPECIALS to make the celebrating even sweeter…
You can also celebrate National Scrapbook Month with Close To My Heart’s exclusive “Taste Of Summer” Paper Packet and Stamp Set. These two great new products are only available in May, so it’s a small window. I have been having lots of fun creating with them and I think you will, too.
Featuring bold, vibrant colors, this limited edition paper packet is perfect to pair with your sweet summery memories and so much more. It’s super cute and provides delicious designs for your layouts, cards, and paper crafting projects.
In addition to the great paper packet, this D-size stamp set is overflowing with sweet potential. The stamp set includes 15 different stamp images with a fantastic combination of solid designs, messages, and accessory pieces. You get all of these great images for only $17.95 and only in May.
Creating with these stamps will be so much fun. It’s definitely designed with faster, easier, simpler projects in mind. See how the strawberry is separate from the step and the little berry dots are not attached to the vine? That makes it so much easier to quickly stamp them in different colors to have a multi-colored looking print image without any masking. Love that!
And just in case all of that is not exciting enough, there are even two workshops available to go with the “Taste Of Summer” Paper Packet – one for scrapbooking and one for card making. Close To My Heart designed two workshops that are complete with cutting diagrams, instructions, a list of other supplies you might like to use, and pictures. I have already used these workshops to make some cards and scrapbook pages. They are quick and easy to use. It’s awesome!
If you are attending Scrapbook Fiesta and would like to have this terrific paper and stamp set to enjoy during the day, you can add it to your registration fee and I’ll bring it to Scrapbook Fiesta for you. You can even make the card or scrapbooking workshops while you are there.
If you cannot attend Scrapbook Fiesta, no worries. I can send them to you with your Scrapbook Fiesta Workshop Kit To Go, or you can find them all on my website. There is no qualifying purchase required to get in on these terrific National Scrapbook Month specials and you can order as many sets as you like. Click here to enjoy the ease of shopping online and order your sets at your convenience. Just remember, there are only available for the month of May.
Happy National Scrapbook Month and however you decide to celebrate, take some pictures, make some memories, and carve out some time to put your stories on pages where you can revisit and share the moments.
