Grace level 1 cards

I have seen so many neat things done with the level one kits.  I hope to experiment with them enough to utilize them so well.  I want to say thank you to Pam Wallace for showing me the template and examples.  Here are my nine cards. I don't know if I should scrapbook with rest of the kit or make more cards.

My favorite CTMH product

When I first discovered Close To My Heart, I loved the coordinating paper packs. They are still my favorite but for a different reason. I love how CTMH shows you new ways to use the paper packs, like Home Sweet Home for a football layout.

Sneak peek at my Mistletoe Scrapbook Workshop

I still need to add a title on the last layout and a few embellishments after the pictures are on the pages.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Home Sweet Home

I was so amazed when the catalog showed a football page done with Home Sweet Home paper.  Here is my version.
