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.

These Are My People Custom Card Workshop

Hello friends!
Are you sending more cards like I have been?  Here's a fun, colorful and simple card workshop using all new goodies from Close to My Heart.

Last month, CTMH released a new Cricut Collection called Everyday Moments.  You can only find it in the Cricut store through my link.  It's complete Card and Scrapbook projects.  They're beautiful but as a cardmaker, I sliced and diced many of the fun elements out just for card embellishments.

And this month they have a wonderful paper collection "These Are My People"

All Around Creativity

There's a 6x8 Scrabook Cut Above kit, a 12x12 Scrapbook Workshop, Stamps, Stickers and with my latest addition, you can have a 32 Card Kit!

My kit is not a bundle, it's one you'll need to add to your cart separately.

Supply list:

· Cardstock:  1 sheet of each: Canary, Green Apple, Pixie, Smoothie, Sapphire, Carolina, 3 Sheets of Black and White Daisy.  YOu can use the CUSTOM12 built your own Cardstock pack for a portion of this

Want just the cutting diagrams sent electronically without a website purchase?  They can be purchased for $6 here.  

You can use this guide to host workshops, in home or virtual, but you may not share the files with your customers or down line, but use them for cutting and creating kits that you sell.
