Create-A-Calendar Club: EXTRA KITS!!!!

I hope you are having a fabulous week!
I have been having fun putting together the kits for the first month of Create-A-Calendar Club.
I have made several extra kits and would like to offer them to you.  There are just a few remaining and they will go to the first to contact me.  Once they are gone, they are gone.

You do not need to attend the classes in person to take part in this create club.  We will meet one a month for 4 months to put together a GORGEOUS calendar that also serves as a Year At A Glance memory album!  I will do all the cutting for you.  You only have to assemble your kits.  All materials are included in the class fee except for the adhesives. My service and instructions are FREE!  I do recommend you purchase some 3-D foam tape and an album and page protectors, as well.  You can pay for the kits month-to-month or all at once!

I am using my calendar for 2017 but also creating 2 more to give as gifts next holiday!  You can crate as many as you want.  

I did a love video on Facebook this morning.  You can hop over to Facebook, find my page and take a peek at it!

If you are interested in one (or more) of the extra kits I have contact me a.s.a.p.  They are available to first come first serve!

Make it a super day!

Every January, Close To My Heart celebrates National Papercrafting Month as a way of acknowledging the pure joy of playing with paper! We scrapbook with it, we make cards with it, we decorate with it—in short, we craft with it! This month we’ll be celebrating the joys of paper-crafted home décor with the beautiful Welcome Home wreath kit. This kit comes with pre-cut pieces you can simply pop out and attach to the sturdy chipboard wreath base, making a welcoming décor piece for your home. Here are all the ways you and your can get the wreath kit!

This kit contains seven sheets of die-cut shapes which make assembling the multi-layered flowers a breeze! The chipboard base provides a sturdy foundation to build the wreath on, lending durability to the final product. The gold foil stickers allow you to personalize your wreath while the additional gold foil pieces add a touch of elegance. The instructional pamphlet included in the kit walks crafters of all skill levels through each step of the assembly step-by-step, truly making this project faster, simpler, easier!
This kit is designed to have everything you need to create a beautifully handcrafted home décor piece all in one kit, which makes it a perfect fit for everyone! Seasoned crafters will love the beauty of this project while novice crafters will be amazed at how quickly and easily this project comes together!

Winter Wonder Bingo Night and 2017 Create a Calendar Club

Happy Early New Year!
Mark Your Calendar!!!!
I am hosting a Winter Wonder Bingo Bash on FRIDAY, January 13th. We will play Bingo, View New Products in the Seasonal Expressions Idea book that goes live January 1st, create 3 fun projects and perhaps win a prize or 2! All those attending will receive a FREE Seasonal Expressions Idea Book~
Details are coming very soon!
and's the news on a NEW Club that begins SOON!
With the start of a New Year, I am begining a New Club that anyone and everyone can be a part of. It’s called the Create A Calendar Club and I think y’all will want to be a part of it!
Would you like to have some special, one-of-a-kind gifts to deliver next year? Would you like to create a special home decor piece for yourself-one that turns into an absolute treasure that will be loved for many, many years to come?
If you answered “yes” to even just 1 of the questions below than Boy! do I have a treat for you!
If you know of anyone who you think would answer yes to one or more of the above questions that please share this!
The Create A Calendar Club will meet once a month for 4 months. Each class will be 3-4 hours. At each class we will create (3) 2018 calendar month pages, as well as a coordinating 2nd page for each month page. At the completion of the 4th class you will have a 12 month calendar, as well as a Year-At-A-Glance Memory Keepsake!
Once each month is over, you can remove that month page and place it beside the coordination page in an album.
This project will consist of all Cricut Cuts from exclusive CTMH Cartridges. I will cut all Cricut Cuts for you.
When you arrive at each class you will receive a kit with all the pre-cut pieces ready to assemble. 
If you participate via mail or with Kits To Go because you are unable to attend the classes, everything will be precut. You will receive written instructions, as well as pictures to refer to. I want you to be able to enjoy the creative process-thus the reasoning for carrying this project out over 4 monthly classes. This will also allow you to create multiple calendars and coordinating pages. So making one for you (as well as, for as many loved ones as you wish) is an easy and fun activity! Thank you to Jen Smith, a fellow Consultant for sharing her ideas with me.
The class fees will cover the materials needed to create the project. My service is FREE. If I need o mail you your kits then postage costs will be applied to your payment.
Payment for each class will be due one month in advance.
If you wish to pay for the entire class upfront, that is also an option.
The first class is $45.00 and the following 3 classes will be $40.00. The first class is slightly more because you will receive the actual 12 x 12 calendar at that class.
Add-on products will be suggested but are not mandatory.
Please let me know upon registering how many calendars/coordinating layouts you would like to create.
You will need to bring your own adhesives to class, as well as a 12 inch paper trimmer & scissors. Memory Glue Dots and 3-D Foam Tape is highly recommended, as well. I am happy to purchase these products for you if you are in need. I also recommend you purchase one of the 12 x 12 Post Bound Album or D-Ring Binder Album and a value pack of protectors. The albums come in a variety of colors to choose from!
Class #1 will be held FRIDAY, JANUARY 20th 6:00-10:00 p.m. at my Studio.
R.S.V.P on/before JANUARY 9th
I am always trying to connect with more individuals and grow my class attendance. If you have a friend/family member whom I do not know sign up with you than BOTH you and your friend will receive a FREE goodie bag ( $10 plus value) from me. I thank you, in advance, for helping me to connect with more individuals. 
If you have not attended classes with me in over 2 years and register for this club you will also received a FREE goodie bag. This is my way of saying “WELCOME BACK!”
If you would like to form your own a Create A Calendar Club you can! Think of it like a private club. The only requirement is that it consist of at least 5 people (including yourself). All those who form their own club will receive hostess benefits. We can work together to schedule different dates for your club to come to class. This option is also available to those participating via mail!
All club members will receive a free Idea Book during the duration of the club. A few other surprises will be sprinkled in throughout the club’s existence. 
The first class is just 4 weeks away so please be sure to register on/before the due date. I will need time to prep each kit prior to our first class.
I hope you can join in on the fun!
Here are photos of the pages we will create at the first class.
