Kathleen Rensel

Dearborn, MI

Hello! In case we haven’t met, I’m Kathleen. My passion is making scrapbook layouts and cards. I’m a Maker with Close To My Heart. Basically, what that means it that I walk alongside you as you create, as you tell your family stories and as you celebrate those special moments in life through photos. I'd love to be a resource for you! Close To My Heart has some amazing, quality products that I can share with you. I also offer opportunities to create whether it’s in your own home (Zoom Crops) or with a small group in Dearborn, MI. If you are new to paper crafting, I’m happy to show you the basic tools you will need and help you get started. I can also help you learn how to use that Cricut you have in the closet. You can get more benefits by being a VIP or a Team Member!
