September Virtual Crop!

 Hi Friends,

This weekend... Actually, today, Thursday is the start of our next Virtual Crop!  

This month we have a team of FIVE consultants presenting techniques, cardmaking, scrapbooking & home decor techniques.  You'll get to see products from our TWO brand new catalogs and win prizes!  

Here's our current schedule!  As this takes place in 4 countries, USA, Canada, Australia & New Zealand we have things planned at all hours of the day.  

I must note this is for customers only, not for current Close to My Heart Consultants.

Please click here to join the Facebook Group.  

I hope you can join us this weekend or in the future.  All presentations are saved and available for replay.  

Comfort & Joy 20 Card Workshop

Hello friends,
I want to share with you my 20 card workshop I created with the all-new Comfort & Joy paper pack with stickers.  Using just half of a paper pack with the stickers, I was able to create 20 beautiful cards that are unique.  No repeats!  Since there's only 1 sheet of stickers in a paper pack, I used the rest of the paper plus the Comfort & Joy Gold Glitter Diecuts X7261E to embellish 20 additional cards.  

With Close to My Heart's gorgeous double sided papers, I'm able to swap papers to create two unique cards from the same design.  This workshop is a dream to cut.  There's a a little bit extra paper so you won't end up short and lots of simple cuts.  

For this workshop you'll want to order the following:  

You will also need 
2 sheets of Scarlet Cardstock
1 sheet of Avocado Cardstock
4-6 sheets of White Daisy Cardstock for Diecuts 
Thin 3D foam Tape

When you place a $25 order on my website or join as one of my downline, you'll receive the cutting & assembly guide for free.  

If you would like to teach this workshop as a consultant, you may purchase the cutting guide & consultant release for $10 below.  

Thank you!

Oh Poo!

Early last month, I showed this Eclipse technique on my Facebook page.  Then when I received my Though Thick & Thin stamp set which is part of the NSD Cardmaking Bundle #1, I knew I had to try it as well.  This bundle is while supplies last in May 2020.

Inside says, "Sorry Corona ruined your ____________"

In short, I random stamped a piece of cardstock. Die cut the sentiment and only colored the die cut. I then reassembled the pieces on a card front and elevated the letters with foam tape.

Clear as mud?  That's why I created a video.  The rose stamp shown in the video is currently available.  It's called the Yesterday & Today Cardmaking Stamp Set.

For the hi card, I used my Cricut.  I centered "hi" in the middle of a rectangle that's 3.75 x 5" on my Cricut mat.  With the letters in place on my Cricut Mat or taped with Washi tape on the back, I stamped the flowers.  You'll need an outline stamp that can be colored.  Stamp in a black ink that's compatible with the type of marker or colored pencil you're planning to use.

I used shimmer brushes on this set.

This kit has supplies for 20 cards.  Just add ink & adhesives.
