WOOHOO!  Stampaganza is back!!  This is the best constant campaign I've seen since I started with Close To My Heart.  I suppose you would like to know what it means?  Purchase two stamp sets and get the third one for free.  In other words - stamp sets are up to 33% off regular price AND purchases qualify toward the November Stamp Of The Month - Around The Block  How great is that!

Grace Workshop On The Go - Registration Deadline October 27th





Our next WOTG will be using the Grace Paper Pack and will be held on Thursday, November 12th from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. This workshop involves preordering of supplies, so the registration deadline will be this Tuesday evening (Oct. 27th) at 8:00 p.m.

This paper pack will appeal to the romantic in you, with the heartfelt saying and flourishes included in the stamp set and floral paper pack that is not too girly for the men in your life. Make either 12 cards or 4 scrapbook pages, or if you are like me (you want it all), you can complete all 16 projects with paper left over to keep on cre8ing!

For $37.50, the BASIC KIT includes: the Grace Level 2 paper pack, Beautiful Flourishes Stamp Set (only available in this kit), Rustic Edge Anchors and a full colour workshop guide.
Grace's BEST OPTIONS include the addition of Basic Craft Buttons for $9.95 and Crystal Blue Waxy Flax for $4.95.
SHEILA'S BONUS - Order any of the stamp pads or markers that coordinate with this paper pack (Barn Red, Cocoa, Honey or Twilight) for 10% off.
Not able to attend the workshop, but would like the kit? No problem, everything you need to complete these projects is included in the kit, with the exception of the Imagine and Wishes how to books, paper piercing tool, an alphabet stamp set and My Acrylix blocks. Many of you will have these items. If you don't, we'll work something out.
Only able to attend for an hour on Nov 12th? Let me know in advance so you can precut your paper and work on the more complicated things at the workshop.

Contact me at 306-736-8196, or cre8yourjoy@myctmh.com .  Hope to hear from you soon!  ~Sheila

Christmas Card Workshop Instructions

This post is for the ladies who are working on their card workshop from home!  The pictures I promised to post regarding our Christmas Card Workshop are below.  To complete this workshop with similar results to the cards posted below, follow the pattern in the Just Because Card Workshop from the new Wishes How-To Book. 

If you are short on time, or want to simplifiy your card making experience, chose a couple of your favourite patterns, cre8 multiples of the same card pattern and leave the rest for another day.  By chosing few patterns to put together you can speed up your cutting time (because you will not have to be referring back repeatedly to the guide and label each piece) as well as the time spent putting the card together, stamping and embellishing when you do multiples of the same card.

I would highly recommend doing this card workshop sometime when you have a day to devote.  If you don't have that kind of time now, feel free to simplify.  Whatever you chose, enjoy the process!!

Probably my favourite card of them all.

Christmas Card Workshop - Card #2


Lovin this Heartfelt Wonder snowflake  :)

Christmas Card Workshop - Card #3


Christmas Card Workshop - Card #4


For this card, I eliminated the piece 4D.  Just preferred the look of the card without it.

Christmas Card Workshop - Card #5


Winter Wonderland and the snow flakes were made using the White Daisy stamp pad and added Prisma Glitter while the ink was still damp.  It's quite a bit more sparkly in person :)
