Christmas in October - card workshop

It's that time of year - the weather is getting a little cooler, and it is time to start thinking about Christmas cards!  You can get a headstart on creating your cards by attending this month's "Christmas in October" card workshop.  Classes will be offered on Friday evening, October 29 and also on Saturday afternoon, October 30.  Note that none of the cards use traditional Christmas paper or colors, and only two stamp sets are used for the front of all four cards. 

A cute prancing reindeer from the I Believe stamp set, with a shiny red Sparkle for a nose, appears to be ready to fly away into the night.  Cardstock used is Gray Flannel and Gray Wool, and the snowflake stamps are from the same stamp set.

Another monochromatic card using the Santa image from the same I Believe stamp set.  The green patterned paper is from the Passages paper kit, and is used with Olive ink and New England Ivy cardstock.   

A third card using the same I Believe stamp set.  This card is definitely more colorful, using papers from the Hooligans paper packet.  A small amount of Liquid Applique is added to the 'cuff' of the stockings, and a Bitty Sparkle is in the center of a snowflake on each stocking.

The inside of the stocking card is completed using a sentiment from the Peace On Earth stamp set.     
Finally, an adorable little tree from A Timber stamp set, paired with paper from Magnifique paper packet.  .    

The "Christmas in October" card workshop will be offered on Friday evening, October 29 (starting at 7 pm), and also on  Saturday afternoon, October 30 (starting at 1 pm).  You will create three of each of the four projects (total 12 cards) for a workshop fee of $10.  Allow two or three hours to complete your projects.  Please be sure to bring your favorite adhesive.  All other supplies are provided with the workshop fee.  All stamps and papers used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

As an added bonus, place a $50+ order from the Close To My Heart  Spring, Summer, or Autumn/Winter Idea Book - and your workshop fee is waived.  Depending on total orders received, there will be a drawing for Hostess Rewards - so you could earn $25 or more in FREE product from CTMH.

Please let me know if you would like to attend one of the "Christmas in October" card workshops.  Feel free to leave me a comment on this blog, send an email to, or call 913-485-4355.
