Blossom Cardmaking Workshop

The spring edition of the Seasonal Inspirations from Close To My Heart includes a darling card workshop called Blossom.  It comes complete with paper, accessories and coordinating stamp set for $24.95 (Item G1095).  Best of all the included instructions and stamp set can be reused with paper you already have. Who has too many birthday cards?  I've made the following cards using leftovers from the Hopscotch paper kit.




This card kit is available through August 2015. Order yours here.

CTMH Hopscotch Scrapbook Layouts

You had me at Hopscotch. As soon as I saw this kit in the Seasonal Expression I catalog from Close To My Heart, I knew I had to have it - all of it: paper, stickease, assortment, workshop kit.  Here are two layouts I created with the workshop kit.  The first one was heavily inspired by fellow CTMH consultant, Dana Kessler. Hurry and order this kit before March 31st when it goes away to make room for new products.






Have a memorable day,
Sheila
