#Disney A-Z is HERE!


OH MY GOSH!!! I am so excited about this kit!

Seriously it was SO fun & I hope you know I had every page with YOU and your pictures in mind.

It is over 58 pages, 156 Picture spots with room for MORE! and PURE FUN wrapped into one AMAZING album!

I really tried to focus on Magic Kingdom specifically for this kit. And the pages are generic enough I think you could use them for everyday photos too! :)

Sit back & watch as I go through the entire ALBUM or skip ahead an purchase it below!

PRE-CUT KITS & E-FILES are available. 

E-FILES $44 reg. $82

This includes 

  • ALL the Cricut Files
  • Cutting Guides
  • Photos
  • Technique instructions 
  • AND an invitation to our Crop-TAS-TIC Disney Virtual Even in September!
  • PLUS 80+ Hours of Design Time!

Please note: Because I am SO grateful for all your support, I generally have one kit a year I give you a special deal on. This is 58+ pages / 28 layouts. The regular price would be $3 a layout. This is 48% off.

Cricut is releasing a final update for Sept 1st & I want to make sure the files work perfectly for you. I also want to make sure we take our time to proof them. The Files will be ready to download by Sept 4th in the afternoon pst!


Disney A-Z Pre-CUT Album Kit $219.95

This is for the ENTIRE Disney Album kit, 58 pages, 156 photos, protectors, embellishments, printed photo copies & my time FREE!

It does not include the Photo Mats OR The Albums. I am offering an add on bonus when you check out for the photo mats & shimmer brushes.

If you add all this up it would equal much more than I'm charging. PLUS to give you some perspective, CTMH is charging $250+ tax + s/h for an 18 page kit. This is 58 pages! And for one of my everyday 10 page kits the price is generally around $80. This is 5x larger. SO its an amazing value & I truly believe it is some of my BEST work to date! If you are a DISNEY fan, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this kit!

My 4 Brand NEW Shimmer brushes died with this kit & I LOVE adding the photo mats. By bumping up your order, I could apply the additional Hostess Goodies to your kit. Giving you the $46 value +tax+s/h for ONLY $30! Whoo Hoo!

Craft with Heart Disney Style!

Craft with Heart is Close to My Hearts Scrapbook subscription that comes out Monthly, Quarterly OR Yearly! The pages are FUN and easy to dress up. They are super fast & a blast but sometimes they need a little something.  For this quarters kit, the pages and colors were JUST right for Disney!

THERE are 3 ways to ORDER THIS!

This is an Add-On Kit for the Craft with Heart Pages only.

1.) Order just the Add on Kit for $39 which includes 20 sheets of Cricut cuts & additional papers, $15 Bling bundle, Colored Printed Instructions, My time FREE for cutting them AND Shipping to you!

2.) SAVE 50% OFF - Order the Quarterly Subscription 4 Months option on my CTMH Website. The Link is below. THEN you will need to order the add on kit.
Once you order the subscription I will send you an email for $19 OFF the ADD On kit!

3.) GET it FREE! When you order the Yearly Subscription you will get the ADD On Kit for FREE! Plus Free shipping from CTMH, Free Photo Prints & you'll be locked in for the whole year of FUN!  I can tell you the next quarters are BEAUTIFUL! EEK! Can't wait!

HURRY these pages go away August 31st 2020.

If you are interested in my E-Files. I'm sorry for this kit I don't have them available. There isn't really any cutting guides to speak of. Plus in Cricut with the CTMH images being SVG I can not share them. They will NOT cut so you'll have to insert your own. AND I used Disney images that are no longer for sale if you don't currently own them. SO really I would feel awful about selling them to you. You may purchase the Add on Kit & I will send you the instructions & all the Cricut cuts.

NOTE: If you previously purchased the yearly subscription let me know!

Gnome Matter Card Kit

OOHHH My Goodness. Did I actually do this? 
Card kits are NOT my strong suit & yet this cute set completely inspired me! SO if you want me to continuing designing them please be sure to click the link and ADD it to your cart.

The coloring was quick & simple and just enough for those of you that don't like to color. I used the water brush and the coordinating ink pads so you don't even have to match colors. On a few things I used markers. Color them, Don't Color them the choice is yours. 

The kit includes the Gnome Stamp & Thin cut set + the perfect sentiment set! Along with all the cricut and card pieces cut for you. WARNING: I can see this cute set of thin cuts selling out early.
