February Scrapbook Class Layouts

Happy Friday!

I love the scrapbook layout my scrapbook class will be creating in February.  I invite you all to join in the fun of preserving your memories on these fashionable layouts.  f you are not able to attend the actual class, Kits to Go are available.

The February class will be held on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26th 6:30-9:00.

Here are the layouts we will be creating and the shopping list will be below the layouts.  We are working with the heartstrings paper.  I created a kit since there is not a Workshop on the Go for this paper pack.

The Add-On Products I recommend if you want your pages to look like mine are:

*Heartstrings Complements My Stickease
*Stuck on You Puffies
*White Shimmer Trim
*3D Foam Tape

I also highly recommend one of your NEW ALBUMS and/or BINDERS (which, by the way, there is a SPECIAL happening during the month of February).  When you purchase one of our new albums, you will receive a second at HALF PRICE!  February is the month to stock up on your albums and binders!

I am forming new groups to start a new session beginning in March.  If you would like to receive a minimum of $25 in free product, a free stamp of the month set the month you are hostess, free Idea Books , be the first to know about upcoming specials, attend free scrapbook classes, create 3 2-page layouts each month, etc then SCRAPBOOK CLUB IS FOR YOU!  All those who join my next session (begins March and runs through September) will receive a FREE LEVEL PAPER PACK of your choice as a gift from me (this is a $10 value!).  Contact me today to sign up!

The monthly kits can be kits to go so if you don't live local or are unable to attend actual classes, you can still be part of the club!  I can mail you your kits. An additional cost for postage will be charged.

All Occasion 15 Card Workshop/Kit to Go

Date: WEDNESDAY, Feb. 25th
Time: 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Cost: Minimum $55-$60 (see options below)
(a postage fee will be added if I have to mail you a kit)

What a super fun workshop this will be!
Close To My Heart created an exclusive kit available only during the month of January in honor of National Paper Crafting Month.
This kit, “YEAR>NOTED was intended to be made into a mini album or scrapbook layout.
I am going to share with you instructions on how to create 15 FABULOUS cards from this darling kit.
I fell in love with the color combinations the moment I began making these cards.
To qualify to purchase this exclusive kit you must place a minimum $50.00 order.
Below are the products required to create the 15 cards you see pictured above.  These products total $40.75 (before shipping and tax).  I have listed the optional products that I used to create the cards.  You need to add another $10 (before shipping and tax) to qualify to purchase the limited edition kit.  You can choose to purchase the add-on products or select other products-the choice is yours-your order only needs to reach the $50 requirement.
You have the option of purchasing the 
“YEAR>NOTED” Kit for just $5.00 (a $35 value)
the “YEAR>NOTED Kit WITH the MINI ALBUM for just $10.00.

Please just let me know upon registering if you want the kit with or without the mini album.
This is what comes in your kit:

*Calk It Up Assortment
*Teal Shimmer Trim
*Value White Daisy Card/Envelope Pack
*”You Mean The World To Me Stamp Set
*Chocolate Stamp Pad

Other suggested products:
*3 x 3 Acrylic Block
*Corner Rounder
*Journaling Pen

Here are photos of a mini album I created using the “YEAR>NOTED” kit, some Hopscotch Cards, Extra Thick Flaxen Twine and the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.
This mini album is intended to be used to document a “day in my life.”  I have always wanted to create a mini showcasing one week in my day-to-day routine.  Won’t it be fun for my grandchildren, great grandchildren, etc to peek at this in years to come and compare their normal every day life to mine!

If you would like to create this mini rather than the cards you are most welcome!  You will need to purchase the $10 YEAR>NOTED kit to create this project.  I will cut the Picture My Life Cards used (from the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge) for you prior to our class meeting.
I have listed below the product you will need to make this project.  The products come to $12.90 before tax.  You just have to let me know what other product you would like to order (a minimum of $38.00) upon registration for the class.

Product Needed for the Class”
*Hopscotch Picture My Life Cards
Extra Thick Flaxen Twine
 *you need to add another $38 in product of your choice

The Mini Flip Flap Assortment would be a super fun product to add to this kit!

This is a must, as the “YEAR>NOTED” Kits will not be available come Feb. 1st.

Retiring Stamp Sets..gone on February 1st

Here are the CTMH Stamps and Stamp Sets that will be retired at the end of this month. If any are on your wish list, I suggest ordering them more sooner than later, as once they sell out, they will be gone forever. You can order them on my website. Click on the "SHOP" tab and then scroll down to the 3rd from the bottom tab "RETIRING ITEMS." Click on that and the stamp sets will pop up.
