"Thinking of Spring" - card workshop

To introduce some of the fabulous new stamps and paper packets that will be available in the CTMH Spring/Summer Idea Book, I will be hosting a "Thinking of Spring" card workshop on February 11 and 12.   Even though there is a lot of snow on the ground right now, you can escape the winter chill and create some fun cards for upcoming birthdays.

This year, Close To My Heart is changing to a bi-annual Idea Book release,.  The new Spring/Summer Idea Book will be available from February 1 through July 31, and includes some fabulous new stamp sets and eight new paper packets.  Attend the card workshop this month, and you can take home your own copy of the Idea Book, along with 12 cards handmade by you.      

A wonderful old-fashioned bicycle from the Enjoy Life stamp set is used along with a sentiment from the Card Chatter-Birthday set and papers from the Lucky My Reflections kit.  The card base is made using a new Kraft cardstock, which has a nice 'rustic' feel. 

One of my favorite new paper packets is Mayberry.  It has such a bright, springtime feel and is used with A Posy and Card Chatter-Birthday stamp sets to create this card.  Inside the card, the sentiment is complete with "I'm just extending the Celebration!"   

After featuring this card in the New Product Blog Hop, I thought it would be a great workshop card.  Features a dancer and sentiment from the beautiful Aspire stamp set along with gorgeous Sweetheart papers. 
The "Thinking of Spring" Card Workshop will be offered on Friday evening, February 11 (starting at 7 pm), and also on  Saturday afternoon, February 12 (starting at 1 pm).  You will create four of each of the three projects (total 12 cards) for a workshop fee of $10.  Allow approximately two to 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 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 the Card Workshop this month.  Feel free to leave me a comment on this blog, send an email to, or call 913-485-4355.
