When I started out I was strictly interested in scrapbooking pages to keep my mountain of photographs on.
I just couldn't understand all the fuss and hoop-la about making cards. Now that I know about a billion scrappers that only make cards, I am starting to get it. I still find it difficult to give my cards away to anyone that doesn't know what goes into making these miniature works of art. Now giving them to fellow scrappers or artists like myself is another story. They (you) appreciate what it takes to design, cut, stamp, paste, tie, punch...... You get the idea.
I have had a few gals ask if I would be interested in holding a card class/workshop and of course I jumped on the idea. During the last 12 months of being with Close To My Heart, I have learned how to scale down the pages I was used to and now really enjoy making the smaller version to share (or horde in my stash) with friends and family.
Here is the set of cards that I have made for my first card class/workshop. I have to mention that the middle card is one I saw that Mary Thomson, a fellow ctmh consultant, had posted on pinterest-I think.
I was going to try and add this text down the side of the photo but haven't learned that yet.
The first, or top card is a layered piece that was stamped on separate pieces of white then matted between the layers. You can see that the stamped design is continuous across the front of the card.
The second, middle card, is a take on the quilted style that I am loving to work with.
The third, bottom card, is one that happened by chance when I sat down to play with my papers and punches. I used the ek punch for that darling lace edge on the front of the card. The denim blue strip is actually on the inside and helps to make the lace show up so nicely.
Also included in the class will be the envelope liners that I think add a classy finishing touch to the collection.
I feel that you could be proud to present any one of these to a special friend or loved one.
How to get a kit:
If you contact me and come to my home class/workshop- the cost is $5.00 to make the three cards/envelopes. If you order and plan to make 2 sets for $10.00 you will get a bonus card.
I will be holding my in-home class/workshop April 25th, 2013 at 6:00pm. Please e-mail me by
April 20th to reserve your spot.
If you chose to order the kit and have it sent to you, it will come pre-stamped so you will mostly need to just assemble your cards and envelopes with minimal cutting.
The cost for the three card kit with pre-stamped pieces is $7.00 (+shipping to you)
You might like to order the six card set (two of each design) for $14.00 (+shipping to you) and I will include a bonus card/tag (still to be designed but will coordinate with these.)
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to order either of these sets.
I do not have a paypal set up yet and will request check or money order for pre-payment.
If you have questions I will be happy to help via e-mail.
Thanks so much for checking in on me and what I have been up to. I look forward to hearing from you!
