Last 2 Christmas Cards

Happy Friday!! Scrapbooking Club tonight! FUN.....I truly enjoy getting together with woman that enjoy preserving memories for their loved ones. We all have a common bond that ties us together..... We love our families, we love our lives enough to use our God-given creativeness to scrapbook the precious moments we have. It is really a blessing to me to have met and gotten to know so many wonderful people since starting my Close To My Heart business. I am so lucky!!

Here is a little "thank-you" gift that I am giving all of my club members tonight. It is the last night of their club together. Most of them are starting over next month along with a few new members but I wanted them to know how much I appreciate them so this is just a little something to let them know. These are the final 2 cards that we will be making for the Christmas Card Workshop. The first workshop is FULL but never fear..........there is another one with plenty of openings available on October 27th. Call or email today to sign up!!Remember if you click on any of the pictures in my blog, you can see them larger.

September Club Layout

This month in Hostess club we are using the new Twitterpated paper pack and the Many Thanks stamp set. This is my favorite new paper. We are learning a cool technique called emerging colors. You can see a close-up of it on the second picture below. We are also using the Rock-n-Roll stamping technique and the blending pen to color the veins on our leaves.

I used pictures that show a few different events that are traditional for the Fall season for our family. One thing I love about this paper is that although I am using it for "Fall-ish" pics, you can use it for anything at all. It is so versatile. The color combo in this paper is just plain fabulous.

Next month, we will be using the "Grace" papers also featured in the Fall/Winter Idea Book. I hope to have those pages posted early next week. Stay tuned..........

Happy Scrappin',

Christmas Card Workshop

It has been way to long since I posted anything on my blog!! The summer flew by and it was fun but busy. The kids are already back in school and the leaves are just beginning to turn colors. I absolutely love Fall. It is my favorite time of year and a BIG part of that is the upcoming HOLIDAYS. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I am excited to announce my 2009 Christmas Card Workshop. We will be making 12 cards. There are 6 different designs and you will make 2 of each design. I have pictures of 4 of the cards and I am still working on the other 2. We will be embossing, using glitter, some new patterns and lots of "bling" on our cards this year. I am using the color scheme and paper from the new "JINGLE" paper pack shown in the Fall/Winter Idea Book which just came out on September 1st.
