Everyday Life Crush 36-Card Workshop with Cutting Guide!

I am SOOOOO Excited about this workshop! I know, I ALWAYS say that but I am totally STOKED this time around!

I have not created a 'Card Only' Workshop for over a year and I am SO excited about this one! 


I butchered up the 'Everyday Life' Crush Pages (Found in our Seasonal Expressions Idea Booklet Volume #1) 

I think the Crush pages made the CUTEST card set ever! 

This workshop creates 3 Dozen cards! Yes, 36 Cards!! The supplies ended up being SUPER affordable! 

The Consumable products (without tax & shipping) only came out to be $38.55! That means each card only cost $1.07! (Holy Smokes!) 

When I figured in my tax rate & shipping it brought the 'per card' cost up to only $1.23! I almost couldn't believe it, I did the math several times to be sure! 

You will also have left over embellishments! So you can further embellish OR use your left over scraps of Crush pages to create even more cards! 

Have a look at the supply list!

-          My Crush Everyday Life Pages #Z3210  $7.95
-          Grey Enamel Gems  #Z3089  $3.95

Guess what the best part is about this stamp set?! It has a Coordinating 'Thin Cuts' Die set! Yes! Close to My Heart has introduced Metal Dies to our Product line! 

The Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts Dies are only $13.95! 


You can find the stamp set as well as the matching Thincuts right HERE so you can easily add them to your shopping cart! 

As you will notice in my artwork I did NOT use the Thincuts, I was trimming the flowers on a road trip with my family and using scissors was a bit easier than using my Cuttleug in the car!

Studio Sus 'Fundamental 14' Workshop Featuring 'Live Your Day'!

Okay, so I might be in LOVE with this one! Each January Close to My Heart celebrates National Papercrafting Month in a BIG WAY! 

This year we get the CUTEST Picture my Life Card Set! *Just in case you are not sure...'Picture My Life' is CTMH's product line of Pocket Scrapbooking! 

Except you know me....I'm a rebel (HA!) and I love using things in their alternative form! So.....check out what I DID! (EEEECK!!!! Love!) 























I couldn't just leave the cards alone, I had to create something a bit more WILD! Whoop! I call this the Studio Sus 'Fundamental 14' Workshop! It creates (14) 12" X 12" Scrapbook pages and (14) Simplistic Greeting Cards! I Looooooove this kit! 

Now! Before we move any further I MUST tell you that the 'Live Your Day' PML Cards are a January 2016 EXCLUSIVE! Campaigns like these are 'While Supplies Last' so Order Early to secure your set! Don't Delay! 

So when I decided I wanted to create a Workshop using the 'Live Your Day' Cards I thought for a while about which direction I wanted to take it....

For those who know me personally know the struggles we've faced during 2015.  I will be SOOOOO Glad to see this one on the way out! This year has kind of taken my family, chewed us up, and spit us back out. It has been very rough with many changes...sad and devastating changes. 

So, I have declared that 2016 WILL bring better things for our family and I plan on documenting each one of them! 

I have created 6 of the 7 featured 2-pg layouts with a 'monthly' focus including plenty of pull out journaling cards to keep our memories and milestones well documented! This year is going to be as much about the MILESTONES as it is about the PHOTOS and I want to remember BOTH! 

I'd love for you to come along this journey with me throughout 2016!

So let's get to the PRETTIES why don't we?! :) 

Here is Layout #1 Featuring January and February!

















With carefully placed adhesive on the top, bottom, and left edges I created a 'pocket' to hold the journaling cards! Sa-weet, right?! 


Here is Layout #2 featuring March and April!















Again, as before...lots of space for the pull out journaling cards! I plan to document our many HAPPY Milestones throughout the next year in the hopes of healing our hurt just a bit!




Here is Layout #3 featuring May & June! 





Here is Layout #4, featuring July and August. 




Layout #5 features September and October. 




Layout #6 features November and December.

















Layout #7 was using some scraps (Why do the 'Scrap' Projects ALWAYS turn out SOOOO Cute)?!




I still had MORE scraps after (14) pages so I created a few simplistic cards as well! They are Super Simple and Super Cute! :)


I Love the look of these cards! They were a Breeze to Create! One of my Goals this year is to send more cards so these will help replenish my Personal Card Stash! 

I used one of our Brand New Stamp sets from the Seasonal Expressions Volume #1 Idea Booklet called Stamps of Approval C1637  It's such a Versitile Set and I love that it coordinates with our new Cricut Artistry Collection

Okay, now for the details...
