I am a mom to three sons and have been married to my sweetie for more than 31 years! I have been paper crafting for 18 years and was introduced to Close To My Heart after being invited to a home gathering 11 years ago. I immediately fell in love with the beautiful paper packs, see through blocks and My Acrylics stamp sets. It added a level of ease to creating cards and scrapbook pages. In 2013, as I eagerly awaited the release of the latest Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge, Artbooking, I decided it was time to take my passion for papercrafting to the next level. I so enjoy being creative and love learning and sharing fun, new techniques and I know you will enjoy Close To My Heart's quality products too!
