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.

The 11th Day of Christmas!

On the 11th Day of Christmas My Consultant Gave To Me...

Purchase 3 stamp sets and get the 4th set FREE!

The Close To My Heart My Acrylix® stamp sets are premium-quality decorative stamps that offer crisp, precise stamping at a fraction of the cost of rubber. They’re easy to use, simple to store, and most importantly, offer creative control and artistic precision every time you use them.
If you're buying your first My Acrylix stamp sets, you’ll want to purchase the recommended My Acrylix clear blocks to go with them. Be sure to check out the My Acrylix Block Starter Kit featuring three of our most versatile block sizes.
Thanks to the natural stickiness of our stamps, you can stick your stamp to a block and take it off again when you’re done, making it so that each block can be used over and over with different stamp images.
The stamp sets in the Holiday Expressions will RETIRE on December 31st.  If they sell out before the 31st they will not be restocked.  If there are any sets on your wish list TODAY would be a great day to order and earn some free sets!
