As a Consultant with Close To My Heart I would love to show you how to organise your memories and get them out of those boxes and into beautiful albums using quality photo-safe products from a huge range of new and exciting products. Your projects can range from the very simple to whatever your creativity can dream up. Not into photo-scrapping but love the idea of making your own cards and craft? I can help you with this too. If you are interested in learning more contact me for further information.
