Sweet Pickings of Strawberries πŸ“ & Watermelon πŸ‰makes for a sweet 30 card workshop with 15 designs!  

I've created this colorful workshop with 15 card designs for a total of 30 cards using 1 pack of the May-June Mix-In paper and Sweet Pickings.   There's 3 designs that have shaker elements with an option to make 3 more designs into shakers as well.


The Tutti Frutti shapes not only make fun shaker bits, but amazing, yet soft and flat card front embellishments.


  


These fun cards are easy to cut and assemble.  There's no fussy cutting required if you have the Thin Cut dies that accompany the stamp set.  Only 4 ink colors required.  If you mail them, no extra postage required!   These cards have tons of customizability with your choice of sentiments.

Happy Boxing Day!


December 26th is Boxing Day in Canada & Britain.   Originally, servants would receive a box of gifts and the day off from their masters so they could celebrate Christmas with their own families.   Now it's almost as exciting as Black Friday as retailers clear out boxes in their warehouse with fantastic sales.   

With Close To My Heart in Canada,  Japan,  Australia & New Zealand as well as the US, they're happy to share this tradition with Americans.   

Happy Shopping! 



But the American "Bigger Is Better,"  theme is taken seriously at CTMH.   They will be celebrating with DAILY sales thru 12/31.  

So every night at Midnight MST new items will be part of the Boxing Day sale.   


Don't forget,  you'll receive a free kit from me when you get the Stamp of the Month for a discount!   AND... you'll also be offered a complimentary copy of the next catalog.  Be sure to add it during checkout!
