December 1st and the holidays are right around the corner!  Great day at the Bear Creek HS craft fair today and I look forward to the display tray workshop tomorrow.  Next week we will have our December classes and I wanted to share the class projects with you.

These cute 3x3 cards are made using the stamp set Cup of Cheer (B1404 $9.95)

This fun card using the Pirouette stamp set (B1409 $9.95) will feature the embossing technique.  It is a clean simple card, but looks so eloquent.

Gotta love the new cricut cartridge because of all the 700 fun items you can make with it.  Using the December stamp of the month Year-Round Cheer and one of the swing card cricut patterns, the gals will make one of these at class.  This great stamp set features an icon for each month, so what a great set to use for making calendars.  Remember this stamp set (S1212) will only be available Dec.1-31

This month the layout will feature the Avonlea WOTG kit.  Lots of fun shapes cut out with the cricut gives this one a unique look.  (Can you tell how much I love and use our cricut cartridges!!)

Display Tray Workshop

On December 2nd I will be offering a workshop using our wonderful display trays.  The cost will be $30 which includes the tray, compliments to match the paperpack chosen, background and texture paper pre-cut and a few other fun items.  Those planning to attend the workshop should bring 15-20 pictures so your project will be totally complete when you leave.  You may select the Pear &Partridge, Avonlea or Clementine paper.

This is a close-up of the flower you will make to add to your project.  The flower was cut out from the Artiste cartridge.

The Avonlea paperpack is wonderful to use with your black and white photos.

Look how beautiful this flower turned out!

Clementine paperpack is great to use with all those kid photos!!

November classes

The November classes were split this month due to several craft fairs, but we still had a great time with the projects.  The waterfall card we made using our cute snowman stamp set was a big hit.  Look at their cute little faces!!

The 3x3 cards were made using the scholastic paper pack for the base (pattern cut out using the new cricut Artiste cartridge) and the Pun Fun stamp set.

The stamp of the month (Capture the Date) was a challenge to come up with a card for class.  I did random stamping on our new Whisper card stock and then allowed the gals to create a card with their special date on it.  This card could be used for male or female because of the color scheme.

Hard to believe how quickly the holidays sneak up on us, but I like to do the Christmas layout in November so my customers have one of their holiday pages ready to go.  We used the WOTG Pear and Partridge.  These papers have such great color and design.  They will be gone after Jan.31st, so if you like them be sure to buy a few packs before they are gone for good!

Save the date--Saturday October 13th from 10am-noon, so you can plan to come to my mini album workshop.  You can make one or all of these cute albums for only $10.00 each.  You have four new paper packs to choose from:  Pear & Partridge, La Belle Vie, Dakota and Scholastic.  All papers will be precut for you to make it easy to quickly put these together.  Hope to see you there!!

 This is the front of the Pear & Partridge paper pack album.  The middle of the wreath was left blank so you can add a saying or a date.

This fun album using the Scholastic paper pack would make a great gift for the moms sending their kids off to school or the grandparents wanting to cherish those special school moments.

Hard to believe tomorrow is October already--where does the time go?  The October classes will be held on the 6th, 7th and 8th, so make plans to come and create these great projects!!  These cute gift bags were made using the new cricut cartridge Artiste (exclusively from Close To My Heart) and the October stamp of the month: Very Merry Christmas  S1210.

It is always fun to create a fall card and using the stamp set Fall Harvest (C1504) you will design your own.

3x3 cards are a fun card to make and have on hand for that special bag or gift you have for someone.  The base of the cards were made with the Artiste cartridge also.  This fun stamp set is the Petite perks (available only through a CTMH consultant).

This month the 2-page layout will feature the Clementine WOTG paper pack and our new burlap ribbon.

September Class Projects

Classes in September are just around the corner and with a new Idea Book out, new paper packs will be featured in our class projects.  We always do a card/project with the stamp of the month, a layout using one of the WOTG (workshops on the go) and with the new cricut cartridge "Artiste" I will add fun projects from there.  Check out the fun items we will be making in September--you won't want to miss making these!!

This is the September SOTM and check out this fun card using the Clementine paper.  It folds up nicely to fit into a standard envelop, but is great to display on your table--who wouldn't love getting this in the mail!!

For the month of September you can order this stamp set--It's Your Day-- for only $5 with a qualifying purchase (spend a minimum of $35 in product).  In September you will make one of these cute 3x3 cards using the Avonlea paper pack.

The new Ariste cricut cartridge from CTMH has so many new 3D items and this month we will be making this fun coffin gift box you can fill with goodies to give to that special "ghoul" in your life.

Using the Moonlight WOTG kit and stamp set we will make this fun 2 page layout--just in time to add those Halloween pictures you are sure to take!!
