April Workshop and Specials

Hello everyone,
Well I took March off and didn't really get anything extra done. Where does the time go?? I am so excited about April with Close To My Heart. I think you will LOVE,LOVE, LOVE the workshop and there is a great special starting on the 15th. It is a spectacular kit that includes glitter paper, a stamp set, die cuts, mini-medley accents and a foam texture tool - all with a brocure that shows ideas for using this beautiful kit. It's called "Tickled Pink" and you can earn it for FREE with the purchase of $60.00 in stamps or by hosting a Home Gathering with a minimum of $400.00 in sales!! This is one of the BEST specials I have seen since starting with CTMH - I will post pictures as soon as they are available! Call me to schedule a gathering anytime from April 15 - May 31 to earn this great kit.

I will be posting my April Hostess Club project soon and also will post the workshops for May soon so keep checking back.
Happy Spring,


This fishing themed "World's Best Dad" set is just in time for summer fun photos and all of those man-cards you will need for Father's Day and Birthday's. Earn this set at a discount with qualifying purchase.


Join me for a workshop that will show you how to make 18...that's right, 18 cards from one Level 1 paper pack. I add some cardstock and a few embellishments and you get 18 gorgeous cards for the great price of $16.00. That is less than $1 per card. You will also learn how to do this with ANY Level 1 paper pack that we sell. The workshop is on April 18th from 10am - 12:30 pm. You must sign up by April 1st. Call or email me ASAP to reserve your spot!!

March Happenings

Well, it has been awhile since I posted. I decided not to schedule any workshops in March. I really need some time to reorganize and let my creative juices get flowing afresh. So, I am posting the layout we will be doing at Hostess Club this month. We are doing an "All Boy" layout this month and will balance it out by doing an "All Girl" layout next month. The techniques we are learning this month are sponging to color in line stamps and paper piercing.

I am offering a special of my own this month: FREE SHIPPING on orders $50.00 or more. Don't forget the Stamp Of The Month Special. The March stamp is Butterfly Wings: it is elegant and beautiful. If you spend your $50 to get the FREE SHIPPING, you will get Butterfly Wings at half price too!! Contact me at shock@fidnet.com or give me a call if you have any questions. Also if you do not have a catalog and would like to view our products: the website is:


I am working feverishly this month to come up with some simply amazing workshops for next month, so please check back in a couple of weeks to see what is available. In the meantime, take a few hours to do some scrap booking or card making on your own. I know that it refreshes my soul to do something that is about me expressing myself just for me. I know that my art does bless others when I see my family looking at the scrapbooks and laughing and remembering or when I give a handmade card and see the appreciation on someones face. But, essentially, I do this for me. Even if no one appreciated it, I would be taking what is in my heart and making it touchable. There is something healing and satisfying about that. So, set aside a little time and just make it happen....you will be glad you did
