Sparkle with JOY Banner

This weekend I noticed a LOT of my CTMH friends were using glitter paper.  I think we all needed a little extra sparkle.  I created this banner with a LOT of sparkle!

I love our new 3 packs of Glitter Paper that have all 1 color.  I'm using the super shimmery red and the icy white for this project.  And a little leftover Snowhaven that's been retired for a couple years.  I had been wondering how I could use up this paper with the bold Nordic striped pattern on the other side.  Now I know!

Every bit of this banner was created with the newest CTMH Cricut Cartridge Flower Market.  This is the SURPRISE banner on page 5.  In Design Space I used the contour button and hid the design at the bottom red banner pieces.

I have lots of layers here.  The only thing that I adhered with Bonding Memories are the holly berries to the Willow colored holly border.  Everything else is attached with the original 3D Foam tape for maximum lift.

Right now I have it attached to a closet door.  Here's a pic to give you an estimate of size.  Each piece is 5.5" tall and 4.15" wide.  I used just over a yard of ribbon.  I also have a LARGE version where each piece is 11.5" tall and about 8.5" wide.  Did I mention how I love that each pack of glitter paper now has 3 sheets of the same color?  It makes projects like this one so easy.

Materials List

How to get this banner
1.  Order a pre-cut version below for $7.  Need it shipped for $2?  No problem.
2.  Order the supplies from my website ($15 minimum) and I'll send you the Design Space File
3.  Join my team and receive all of my files to use for free!

3 Christmas tag workshops

Tags, tags & more tags!  Here's 3 sets of tags you can order or complete at one of my holiday workshops!

First the workshop dates:  Both workshops are at my home in Everett, WA
Saturday, November 12, noon - 4pm
Saturday, December 1, 6:30pm - 9pm

Now the tags.

 Set #1 

This set I designed!  Last year's tags were so popular I wanted to do this again. You'll get 12 tags total, 2 of each design.  All it takes is a Bonding Memories glue pen and a few bits of 3D foam to assemble.  No stamping required.  Where else are you able to get cute little mason jar tags?  

Cost $8/dozen tags.
$2 will be added for shipping.  US addresses only.

If you'd like the Cricut Design Space file for the this tag set, you can place a $15 order on my website or PayPal me $5.  These tags were made using the CTMH Artistry & CTMH Flower Market Cricut Cartridges.  (The new City Sidewalks Christmas Cartridge wasn't used)
Just leave a note that you want my Christmas tag workshop.

Set #2 is this burlap bag & tag set 
The burlap bags are 5.5" x 4.  They'll hold a 3 x 3 x 1" box (or a 3" CTMH Acrylic block).  They're a perfect way to dress up a gift card with a few wrapped candies.

Make 3 sets for $5.  These bags are on clearance and may sell out.  
This bag tag was designed by CTMH for the Pinners Conference.

Set #3 is the shimmer of gold foil glitter & Kraft!  

The Cut Above kits are pre-cut kits that you just stamp and assemble.  
The kits are $9.50 with tax & shipping to my door.  You can also order them online here.  There's several individual stamps designed for this set that are available separately.

I have the Merry Christmas, Joy and Happiest Holidays available at my workshop or you can order your own.  There's Spanish & French versions too!

To request a kit, RSVP on Facebook or better yet, email me so I know when to look for your pre-payment.  I'll need your payment about 2 weeks prior to the workshop so I can order/pre-cut your kit.  I accept PayPal or you can mail a check.  

Don't forget about my card workshop too!

City Sidewalks Holiday Card Workshop

The City Sidewalks 20 card workshop is ready to go!
Like my fall workshop with Swan Lake, it uses just a quarter of a pack of the X7213B City Sidewalks My Reflections paper pack plus cardstock, extending this beauty to up 80 cards if you cut up a whole paper pack.

How to get it

  • RSVP w/ payment to one of my Saturday workshops on October 8th, 10-3pm or November 12th, 12-4pm

  • Order the supplies on my website and get the instructions for free.  

Want just the cutting diagrams and the ability to use this with your own friends & customers?  Keep reading!  Then hop on over to my website.

This snowflake is 3" in diameter!  And the silver glitter paper cuts beautifully without a lot of glitter floating around the house. This workshop uses the brand new Snowflake Thin Cut dies from Close to My Heart and just a little M-sized stamp set!

Here's the second snowflake.  It's a bit smaller at 2" but just as beautiful.

Workshop Details:
  • 20 cards:  3 each of 6 designs plus 2 of design #7 
  • 20 card bases & envelopes
  • All papers pre-cut
  • Includes your choice of M-sized stamp set
  • 1 pack of red enamel gems included (tons left over)
  • Cranberry & Peacock inks needed, available at my workshops
  • Full color assembly guide included.
  • Bring your favorite paper adhesive & mini-glue does
  • Place your order by Friday, October 28 & receive your choice of a second mini-stamp set for free!

Here's the 5 recommended stamp sets for this kit.  They're also available in Spanish & French.
View them on my website here and let me know when you place your order.

20 card kit: October 8 or November 12 or local pick up in Everett, WA

Add-ons (shipped or local pick up)
List additional stamp set here

Kindly order your kit at least 10 days before a workshop if at all possible so I have time to order supplies and cut your kit.  Kits will be shipped just after the 15th or 30th of the month, depending on when I receive the supplies for your order.  I may need to order your stamps and or snowflake thin cuts.  This kit will only be available until December 10, 2016.

DIYer & Consultant Guide Available:
If you'd like to create this workshop for yourself or your customers, place a $25 order on my website or use this PayPal link to receive the cutting guide, photos for assembly and consultant release.  Files will be sent to the email address on your PayPal receipt within a day, usually in just a few hours.  No items will be shipped.
