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 a pre-cut kit to pick up or arrive via mail
  • 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 

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.

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.

Leap Into the Holidays!

Every year, I say to myself, "I need to get a jump on the holidays."  This year, let's do it!

1st Leap Day:  Saturday October 8, 2016  10-3pm in Everett at Pinehurst Baptist Church.  
2nd Leap Day:  Saturday, November 12, 2016, noon-4pm at my home in Everett

If you want to attend the October leap, please RSVP by October 1, 2016.  There's no crop fee, but you will want to bring a snack and or potluck lunch item to share and your craft tools & supplies.  We'll be joining a few ladies from the Pinehurst Baptist Church crafting group.  

The plan is to bring or order kits to work on of your choice.  I won't be teaching a specific workshop.  I will have a small basket of adhesive & other items to buy.  Please plan & pre-order. 

The Close to My Heart Holiday Expression debuted last week and has some wonderful kits and of course I've cooked up a couple of my own.

Everyone can order these kits, even if you're not local or attending.  Shipping may vary and some items may actually be a little less if directly shipped to you if you have a lower sales tax.
