More Virtual Events coming in August! (Summer Vibes & Happiest Place)

Close To My Heart continues to create free online workshops just for you!

Updated 7/27/2020 to include the Born To Shine Kids Crafts Workshop!

These virtual sessions will be held on the Close To My Heart Facebook page. Be sure to RSVP to these events by selecting "Going" for each of these events so that your name will be in the prize drawings! Attendance is free, but you can order the kits on my CTMH website if you'd like to create along with us!

Summer Vibes Workshops

The next two events will feature workshops from the Summer Vibes suite of products. 

Cardmaking Workshop

Tuesday, August 11 at 3 pm CST

At this workshop, we'll be making the 16 just for fun greeting cards, four each of the four designs below. You can order the kit on my CTMH Website. In addition to the paper, cards/envelopes, stamp set and embellishments included in the kit, you'll basic paper crafting and stamping tools, plus the ink pads listed on the site. To finish them as shown, you'll also need watercolor paints and a brush --- I recomend our small waterbrush.

Scrapbooking Workshop

Tuesday, August 18 at 3 pm CST

At this workshop, we'll be making the three 2-page 12" x 12" summer layouts below. You can order the kit on my CTMH Website. These layouts use custom die-cut pieces and stickers. There is very little prep work, but you will need a paper trimmer for a few cuts. The sample layouts include sparkly highlights created with Cool Mint stickles. If you'd like to recreate that affect, be sure to add a bottle to your order!

Happiest Place Workshops

At the end of August, we have three days of crafting lined up! Each afternoon from August 26 - 28, join us to make a project from the Happiest Place Collection. If we can't travel to our happy place this year, we can at least celebrate it with some creative projects! So grab photos from past trips or get ready for your next one with these projects!

(Sample projects. Actual cardmaking & scrapbooking workshop projects will be posted soon.)

The basic materials for all three of these workshops are included in the Happiest Place Product Bundle. Each of the items inclued in the kit (stamp + Thin Cut set, Paper Packet with Sticker Sheet, Coordinating Cardstock, Cut ABove Workshop and Acrylic Shapes) are available individually, but you save 20% when you buy the bundle. You can also buy individual products separately.

Cut Above Layout Workshop

August 26, 5 pm CST

The Cut Above workshop kit makes a sixteen gorgeously decorative 8.5" x 11" scrapbook pages. This kit can be purchased separately or as part of the product bundle. The pages will come together quickly thanks to die cuts and stickers. You also get photo placeholders and printed instructions. Memory protectors and albums can be purchased separately. (Memory Protectors ARE included in the bundle.)

All of these events will happen on the Close To My Heart Facebook page. You can watch them live or on replay at a later time that works for you. Over the last few weeks, CTMH has hosted workshops to make cards and layouts from the Aurora, Stitched Together and Brushed collections.
