NEW "MAGIC" CLUB FORMING NOW!

Close To My Hert Has a NEW Scrapbooking "How To" book coming out on Sept. 1st. It is called "MAGIC."


With this "How To " Book you will be able to bring Magic to your scrapbook layouts using clever interactive techniques. You’ll add hands-on excitement and dramatically increase your photo and journaling space using pop-ups, pull-outs, slides, cascades, and more! “MAGIC” also includes 35 gorgeous 12 x 12 layout patterns that can be used on their own or with the interactive techniques. A DVD is also included!


Because this book is a MUST HAVE for every paper crafter on earth, I decided to form a "MAGIC" Club. Here os how it will work:


You will purchase the "MAGIC" book ($35.00 which includes shipping and tax). Then you are invited to a FREE CLASS at my workshop each month where I will guide you in creating a layout from the "MAGIC" book. A different club member will select a layout each month that the entire club will create. You will bring your own cardstock and/or Background & Texture paper to class to create your layout. This way everyone is creating layouts with the paper they choose to use! You also want to be sure to bring along your basic tool kit (12 inch paper trimmer, lots of adhesives, pencil, glue dots, scissors).


I'd like to have 6-8 members in a club so we will form as many clubs as we need to. We will have a mystery hostess drawing if enough individuals sign up for the club so YOU could be the LUCKY MYSTERY HOSTESS AND EARN FREE CTMH PRODUCT, along with FREE MONTHLY CLASSES just for purchasing the"MAGIC" HOW TO Book! HowCool is that!

I would like to offer morning and evening class times for this club. Once all members have signed up a schedule will be made.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT SO PLEASE CONTACT ME TODAY TO JOIN THE "MAGIC" CLUB! Sign-ups for this clubs ends on FRIDAY, AUGUST 20th. that is just 5 days from TODAY! Payment must accompany your registration.


SUPER SIGN-UP SPECIAL!

I am currently working on the SEPTEMBER scrapbook and card club projects...both of which use NEW Workshop on the Go Kits in the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book. Oh my goodness, what fun I am having creating these AWESOME projects!!!!!! These products and projects are just too good to not share with everyone and everybody! So...I am offering a SUPER SIGN-UP SPECIAL beginning today (August 16th) up until TUESDAY, AUGUST 31st. I encourage all those already in a scrapbook or card club to invite a friend(s) or family member (s) to join the club along with you. Not only will they learn how to create wonderful layouts and/or cards each month and get top of the line products to take home with them, but YOU and YOUR FRIEND will receive a special gift from me! To the existing member, you will receive a FREE LEVEL 2 PAPER PACK of your choice for every individual you recruit AND each new person you bring to club will also receive a FREE PAPER PACK, as well. These paper packs will be awarded once the club session is over. If you have been in a club in the past but have taken a break OR if you would like to join a club (and are not with another friend already in a club) then you will receive a FREE PAPER PACK at the end of your club session, as well. This offer is available for both local and out of town individuals. If you live out of town or even out of state, I encourage you to gather your friends and form a club today! Then you can meet to work on club projects together OR just create them in the comfort of your own home, all while enjoying the club benefits! I hope to see lots of new clubs forming all month long!

Summer is coming to an end

It is hard to believe but this is my kids last week of summer. Yup, they head back to school one week from today. I am not ready for summer to be over!!!!! Last week I created this layout. The photos were from the first day of school last year. My or my how my children have grown in the last year!
As you look at the 2nd photo you can see the 4 x 6 flip flaps that I used on the layout. I love these flip flaps! They are the perfect solution to including more photos and or journaling on your layout!
We will be busy this week doing fun things and taking advantage of being outside as much as possible before the kids are in their classrooms all day long starting next week! I am also working on our annual "Back to School Family Fun Day." I'll share all the fun we have once the day is over!
