Feb. Workshop – Frosted


Yeah!  We saved the best for last for this current catalog. I love the Frosted Workshop on the Go!  I love the look of these layouts!

The workshop dates are Sat. Feb 22 at 3 pm and again on Monday night Feb 24 at 6 pm.  The cost is 29.95 plus S & T.   You will make the below two layouts. You have to let me know before Jan. 31st.  I can not order the kit after that date.  (Getting ready for the AWESOME new catalog that goes LIVE Feb 1st!!!)  IMG_1360IMG_1361IMG_1359IMG_1362


National Papercrafting Month – I’m on “Cloud Nine!”


Close to My Heart is celebrating National Papercrafting Month in January with a special “Cloud Nine” cardmaking kit.  With this, you can create 10 cute cards (2 each of 5 designs) using three sneak-peek accessories from the upcoming Spring/Summer Idea Book, a new D-size stamp set and exclusive Cloud Nine paper.  It’s only available during the month of January with your qualifying order (spend $35 and get the kit for just $15!) (the January workshop – Sparkle and Shine – would qualify you for this special.) You can also get the kit for FREE when you sign up to become a Close to My Heart consultant in January and you submit $300.00 in orders before June 30th.

January Workshop


I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year.  May 2014 be the best year!

Below are pictures of my January “Sparkle and Shine” Workshop.  We will be using the Sparkle and Shine Workshop on the Go kit and the Sparkle and Shine Dimensional Elements. The layouts were designed by talented, consultant Dana Kessler.  They are even more AWESOME in person! LOTS of BLING.  We will make 3 layouts using most of the product!  You will also get a D – size stamp set to use in future projects. Since we are making 3 layouts, I will precut and prestamp where possible prior to the workshop!  All you will have to do is assemble how you like.  If you can not make it to the class, you can still get the kit (everything precut and stamped) – just follow the included pictures of the layouts.   I had to purchase the kits prior to Jan. 1st and only purchased 20 kits.  Half of those are already spoken for, so if you would like a kit, please let me know soon.

Workshop dates:  Friday, January 17th, 6pm

Sat. January 18th, 3pm

Both workshops are at my shop behind my home.  Cost of the products for the workshop is 39.90. Fee for my time is included in the cost of the products.
