Brushed Virtual Facebook Workshop Project Photos Release!

The Brushed workshop event is fast approaching. The projects have been announced, so it is time to prepare for this live event.

Earlier this week, I posted the schedule for upcoming live workshops that will take place on the Close To My Heart Facebook page. That schedule includes the June 30 Brushed workshop where well make both scrapbook pages and cards. These beautiful projects are use a variety of products and techniques. 

The workshop will include seven 12" x 12" pages (1 single page and 3 double page layouts) that are appropriate for a variety of photos. I could see these used for photos from spring or summer, birthday or any happy occaions.


We will also be making eight lovely cards. Sentiments include "Happy Birthday", "My thoughts are happiest with you in them", "This is your special day", "You are loved" and "Always be your own kind of wonderful". 

This FUN & FREE virtual craft event will happen on June 30th at 3 pm CST on the Close To My Heart Facebook page.  Note that Close To My Heart will have prize drawings during the event. Be sure to click "going" on the Event Page for a chance to win.

The basic supplies you need are from the Brushed collection:
  • Brushed Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet
  • Brushed Coordinating Cardstock
  • Your Own Kind of Wonderful Stamp Set
  • A Budding Friendship Stamp Set
All four of these items are conveniently included in the Brushed Product Bundle at 20% off retail price.

In additon to the items in the bundle, you'll also need the following materials and supplies on hand:
You will also need a variety of blocks, your favorite adhesives (I suggest including some 3-D foam tape to add dimention) and basic tools like a paper trimmer, scissors and ruler.

***INK UPDATE: Due to Covid-19, production of our ink has been delayed. If any of the recommended stamp pads are out of stock, other coordinating colors will work. Smoothie can be replaced with Pixie, Candy Apple or Raspberry. Lagoon can be replaced with Glacier. Another option for all stamped flowers is to use scraps of Pixie and Smoothie cardstock. stamp just the outline flowers in Black ink on the colored cardstock. This technique is used on some cards, but could be applied to all of them.

Directions for thes projects will be posted a day or two before the event. I can't wait to craft with you!
