Crafts with Heritage Makers

If you're looking for a great gift or home decor, you can make any number of things using your own Heritage Makers account!  If you don't have one, you can get one (they're free) at

I have been selling Heritage-Makers-crafted decor (holiday, home decor, gifts) for a few years now at local craft fairs.  I recently created a Facebook Page so anyone can "shop" online.  (You'll have to e-mail me with your order, but you can see all the pictures and product information, including number of items currently in stock, right there on the Facebook page.)

If you "like" the Facebook Page on Facebook, you'll get updates when new items are added, too!

Here's the link to my online Crafts with Heritage Makers shop!  Check it out--and be sure to "like" it.  Ordering information is there in the first (pinned) post.

Here are some examples of what you'll see:

All About Heritage Makers 2015

This is the latest and greatest--everything you want to know about Heritage Makers.  I made a similar video several months ago, but this one has the updated Club HM information.  Club HM was streamlined in October 2014, making it much clearer to understand with the addition of wholesale pricing and Club discounts being taken at checkout now.  Plus, prices come out a tad cheaper, too!  Watch this video for everything you want to know about Heritage Makers, but be sure to skip 39:15-40:15 where I had some technical difficulties.  :)  I only spend a short time in this video on the actual how-to of making a book because I've already recorded some more thorough tutorial videos called Getting Started With HM.  There are four of those, so if you want to see what all the fun buttons in Studio do, and how to simplify some things as you're creating pages, you can find those on my YouTube channel also!  Happy Heritage MAKING.

new pop-out cards!!

I am in love with this new product!!  I've actually imagined something like this before, but this is AWESOME!
So it's an invitation-style card (just a front and back--doesn't open) and the middle pops out to become an ornament!!  I've seen several templates with family photos right there in the middle.  How darn cute is that??  These come in packs of 12.  Be sure you're a Club HM member (free to join) for the best savings!

how to make a Heritage Makers canvas (tutorial)

I just recorded a little demo about making a Heritage Makers canvas.  It's really simple, and the results are gorgeous and very high-quality!  (The video tutorial here is 20 minutes long, but I do some explaining first--it really takes about 5 minutes to make a canvas!)  There are a few things that are different when you make a canvas in Heritage Makers than, say, a scrapbook page or a page in a book (namely, the wrap-around part of the canvas), so that's why I've dedicated a tutorial specifically to canvases.

For more details about using Heritage Makers' Studio (the program where you create all your goodies!), see the Getting Started With HM tutorials on my Youtube channel.  The one called "One-of-a-Kind Valentine Gift tutorial" is also a very basic walk-through of making something in Heritage Makers--I made a greeting card. 

Enjoy this little demo about canvases!  And please share!

the purpose of Heritage Makers!

This is so true.  Taking photos and then doing nothing with them actually disconnects us from the memories that we wanted to preserve when we took the photos!!

If organizing your photos is overwhelming, let me help!  Getting a handle on them is the first step to doing something with them.  Once they're organized, they're ready to slide into beautiful Heritage Makers templates (or create your own design!!) where you can also tell the stories that belong to your photos.  This is the INTERACTION with photos that's quoted above.  (And I can help with that, too!!)

The whole idea behind Heritage Makers is to preserve HERITAGE and get it into the hands of your family, which is where it belongs.  You can't choose anything better to do with your time (or money) than preserving your own memories, the traditions of your family, and your heritage!
