Holiday Craft Workshop Projects

We are set for October 5th, 2013 from 12 to 5pm to make some Holiday Crafts and Gifts.  Four consultants have been hard at work creating kits for you to purchase and assemble (or you can take them home).

Here are 6 completed projects of mine.  More of mine will be there too.  : )
As you can see, I'm not too into Christmas yet.  You see a Hanukkah card because Hanukkah starts November 27th this year.  Impress your Jewish friends with this card.

The purse next to Hanukkah card houses a small pack of gum -- a great gift!  Actually, all of these items are perfect to give away.  There are even two Halloween cards for those who love that holiday.  The rectangle with the flower on top is a tissue holder and in the upper right you'll see the candle that goes with the "votive holder" (without the bottom).

All of the projects are priced from $1 to $5 and is a pay-as-you-go event.  You can come anytime and stay for as long as you want between 12 and 5pm.  The address is 13612 Poinsettia Dr, Poway 92064.

I hope to see you in 5 days with your scissors, adhesives (liquid glue and tape runner would be good to bring), and cash!!

Which Cricut Cartridge is the Best?

The answer to that question is, "It's a three way tie!".  Seriously though, it does depend on what you want from the cartridge.  In this video, Kristine  talks about the focus of each of Close to my Heart's Cricut cartridges.

Remember that each cartridge comes with 700 images, three coordinating D-sized stamp sets, and three sheets of dimensional elements.

Let me know which one is your favorite!

Holiday Craft Workshop Is Coming

Believe it or not, the holiday season is fast approaching.  I've teamed up with three other CTMH consultants to bring you gift giving projects galore.

Now, I know it's early in the season, but this workshop may include some Halloween and Thanksgiving ideas too.  We are hoping to have a follow-up  workshop in November, but we are still working on the details.

Some advantages of coming to the workshop on Saturday October 5th from noon to 5pm in Poway:
  • Come and go anytime between noon and 5pm
  • Pay for the projects you want
  • Get gift ideas
  • Get gift ideas and samples/gifts completed before the onslaught of the holidays
  • Time enough to order and make more gifts from home
  • Projects from 4 consultants
  • Prizes will be given out
The first raffle ticket you can earn is to RSVP to me (or leave a comment) by October 4th that you are coming.  The second raffle ticket you can earn is to bring along a friend (one I haven't met yet) with you.  Get two bonus tickets by RSVPing by Sept. 27th!

More details to follow soon.  :)

September's Remarkable Wreath Card Workshop

The kids are back in school which means there's some much needed "me" time.  Workshop dates are Monday September 16th and Wednesday September 18th from 7 to 9pm at my house.  Please RSVP by September 8th if you'd like a kit.

When Remarkable Wreath first came out over a year ago, I wanted to do this type of workshop.  I didn't do it right away though, and I almost lost my chance because the stamps were set to be retired.  I jumped for joy when I saw them in this Fall/Winter idea book!  Thus, procrastinating is not always a good thing.

Come make these cards with me.  You'll make two of each design.  The class fee of $15 will  include everything to complete the project and a set of sponge daubers to take home.

The month of September is National Stamping month and CTMH is celebrating as always.  This year we've put together a TRIPLE stamp set!  You'll get not ONE, not TWO, but THREE D-sized stamp sets for $10 with a $50 minimum order.  That's a savings of $42.85!!!

Take a look at this video to see how cute and versatile the stamp sets are:

Don't wait too long though because this offer is only good through September 30, 2013.  Click and join the National Stamp Month gathering on my website.
