Here is the kraft tube I made participating in the Big Picture Class with Stacy Julian. 

All products are Close To My Heart, of course, except the marker used on the chalkboard piece. 

Two things about the class:  1.  It was FREE!  and  2.  It was a Pajama Party!

Become A Consultant in May

The Essentials Consultant Kit
Two years ago I became a Close To My Heart Consultant and I have enjoyed every product and experience along the way.  I've met some awesome people that I may not have had the pleasure of meeting if I had decided not to join the CTMH team.  I've had the pleasure of meeting Jeanette Lynton, the Founder and CEO of CTMH, and her spectacular executive team.  Jeanette is a woman like no other and I am a better person for having met her at Convention.  She has a passion for life, her family, her company, and each and every CTMH Consultant. 

When you join my team this month, The Rockin' Stylettes, you get the above Essentials Consultant Kit for $49, a free Dream Pop Paper Pack (see pics below), and a free retreat weekend at Memory Lake Lodge in WI at the end of September.  The retreat weekend is for CTMH consultants only.  You have nothing to lose.  There is no pressure to sell or have gatherings.  If you decide that CTMH is not right for you, the kit and paper are yours to keep, no penalty.  And if you decide later you'd like to join again, that is not a problem.

This offer is good until the end of May 2013.  Don't miss out!  As always, if you have any questions please contact me at

These layouts were quick and easy because I used layouts already created in the Express Collection from Studio J.  I just dropped my pictures in, did a little distressing on some of the paper, and added a few staples (just because I like them.) 

My favorite part of Studio J, when you drop them into the photo wells, they automatically re-size.  No cropping.  No wasting printed pictures.  No planning ahead printing that perfect 5x7 picture.

I also like that you can chose just to buy the digital layouts or get them shipped already printed.  When you order the printed layouts, you also get a digital copy.  Bonus! 

Happy Scrapping!  Chrys

Brrrrrrrr!  It is cold in Wisconsin.  What a great reason for me to hide away in my craft room and do a few videos of things I've made and some things that were made for me. 

Check them out right here.  Look for the Video Bar on the right side, you might notice my red PJ's first. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Crafting and stay warm!  Chrys  :)
