My favorite project - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

One of my favorite Close To My Heart products is the "My Creations Memory Keeper". I have made four of them now, and this one is still my favorite. I used Jeanette Lynton's pattern without any changes. You can view a tutorial on making this box, as well as written instructions and cutting directions, by watching MyCTMH TV's Art and Soul episode "Scrapbooking the Non-Traditional" here.

The Memory Keeper is a sturdy box (approximately 10" x 10") with a magnetic closure. A cool feature is that it closes flat for shipping, so it makes an awesome gift.

I'm currently creating a Wedding Keepsake Box using our elegant "Silhouette" paper pack. When finished, I'll post it here. I'll be offering a workshop for anyone who would like to make one for either their own wedding treasures or as a cherished gift. I'll also offer a kit version for those of you out of the area.

Here is the inside cover, complete with vintage tags. The tutorial leaves the inside blank, so I ceated this part on my own.This paper packet is "Notebook" by Close To My Heart. I also used coordinating Stickease and Big Pinks Just Blooms.

Well, I'm off to watch my beloved Dodgers beat the Astros (I hope so, anyway)! Their games are rarely televised here in Florida, so I drink them in whever I get the chance!

Sweet dreams,
