Oh My Goodness! I am moving at a snails pace lately!  I was SOOOO Happy to get this workshop done, I've been looking forward to butchering this paper since I first set my eyes on it!

We have already had some items added to the retirement list because they sold out early! Please do not delay with making this purchase if you'd like the City Sidewalks products. :) ** 


This workshop will create (16) 12" X 12" Scrapbook Pages and I think each of them turned out super cute! 

Before we get into the details let me show you the pages up close!

All mystery boxes will be available beginning November 25, 2016 at 12:00 am (MST) while supplies last—so grab a box (or BOXES) for your stash before they’re gone! 

NOW...you KNOW I wouldn't advertise a deal this good without adding a little 'Studio Sus' Bonus to it, right?! SO, Exclusively from me (this is my own personal promotion and not offered by Close to My Heart Home Office) I'm adding something a bit sweeter!

Happy Holidays 'Workshop Your Way' Card Kit PLUS!

Greetings Peeps! 

I am soooo Excited to get to share with you another Quick (yet stunning) card workshop offered by Close to My Heart Home Office! I have been knee deep in other projects but the very moment the Home Office uploaded this darling workshop I just HAD to create it right away! 




Oh My Word! Aren't those cards stunning?! These will surely be a treasure to any who receive them! And HOW CUTE are those coordinating envelopes!? 







This workshop actually uses the 'Happy Holidays' Card Kit with a few additional Supplies! 




The Card Kit is only $19.95 (THRIFTY!!) and that even includes a stamp set! :)

The workshop uses the Heat Embossing technique - which I don't do often! It was SO much fun to break out my tools...Heat Embossing has always been a 'Look, it's Magic' kind of technique to me! (LOL) 

Here is the Supply List provided with the workshop: 

- G1115 Happy Holidays 'Workshop Your Way' Kit
- Z3237 White Glitter Paper (1 sheet)
- Z3090 Red Enamel Gems
- Z2060 Thin 3-D Foam Tape
- Z4003 Thin Cuts Snowflakes
- Z2807 Willow Ink Pad
- Z2816 Cranberry Ink Pad

**If you don't wish to Heat Emboss your cards you can easily just use our White Pigment Ink Pad #Z2863 - remember you will need to let the ink air dry for a bit or use a craft heater to set it as pigment ink remains 'sticky' for a while unlike dye based ink that dries instantly!**

Here are the additional supplies needed for heat embossing with this workshop:

- Z891 VersaMark Ink Pad
- Z2068 White Embossing Powder
- Z555 Craft Heater
- Z1382 Tweezers
- Z2045 All Purpose Mat

The file for this workshop includes step by step directions for creating the cards AS WELL as information on the steps to achieve perfect heat embossing! So if you've never learned how to Heat emboss this is a perfect time! 

All you need to do is place an order on my CTMH Shopping Website for the Happy Holidays 'Workshop Your Way' Card Kit and email me to request the cutting guide and instruction files! I'll be happy to send them right over to you!


I just LOVE the way these cards turned out completely different than the original workshop! I'm so Grateful for the Close to My Heart office to provide this additional workshop for us! I know you will enjoy creating it as much as I did! 



Also, just in case you have not seen the announcement earlier this week, all of my Studio Sus Workshop Cutting files are now available with Paypal purchase (yes, even the brand new ones)! 

Now you have an additional way to receive these files! You can still receive them FREE with any $25 purchase from my website OR you can purchase them directly from my Blog via paypal - CLICK HERE to see all files available! 

Have a Blessed Day friends! :)

HAPPY HAPPY Christmas Workshop with Cutting Files!

Happy Happy Christmas a bit early peeps! 

Close to My Heart is promoting a Brand New Workshop and it was SO CUTE I couldn't resist putting it together myself! 

Have a look at these...!! :)














Okay.....SO CUTE, Right?! 

So here are the details I know you're waiting for! 




During November you can purchase the 'Happy Happy Christmas' Products as a Discounted Bundle OR you can purchase them separately! Here is the link to the Bundles so you can see each of them in detail

Did you notice all of the Additional Projects you can create? (Yes, addition to the 10 Scrapbook pages!) and YES, the Cutting guide reflects pieces for every project shown! 

We (as consultants) didn't even have access to purchase the additional (retired) products early so I couldn't create and photograph the projects for you but here are the photos from the Home Office Art Gallery! 







Cute Again, Right?!  Your investment is stretching CRAZY FAR! 

Okay, so you know me....I have to 'do my own thing' so I had to jazz the layouts up juuuuuuust a tiny bit with a couple additional products! So my layouts shown are going to have just a few 'upgrades'. (wink) 

But let's get to the Supply list so you can get these ordered (or at the rate I'm talkin' we'll be here all night)! 


  • - My Crush Happy, Happy Christmas $7.95 #Z4020
  • - Picture My Life™ Happy, Happy Christmas Cards $7.95 #Z4019
  • - City Sidewalks Complements $6.95 #X7213
  • - Oh Deer! Coordinating Cardstock $9.95 #X7214D
  • - (12) Sheets of White Daisy Cardstock (24 bulk pack $9.50) $4.80  #1385 
All of the supplies above are a portion of the discounted 'Happy Happy Christmas' Bundle PLUS the bundle includes your choice of Album and a package of (10) Page Protectors!

LINK HERE!!  

Soooooo....you have the option of grabbing your favorite bundle and head for the checkout! or if you'd like to Jazz up your projects (as I have done) you can add the (2) following products to your shopping list as well...

- Silver Shimmer Trim $4.95 #Z1799
- Snowflakes Embossing Folder $8.95 #Z4000

I also added Cocoa Cardstock to serve as 'Faux Photos' since I don't  have photos ready for these pages just yet but that isn't really an upgrade as it will be covered by YOUR photos anyway!

See why I LOVED adding the Snowflakes Embossing Folder?!










Oh My WOOOOORD, it truly added so much to the pages! I almost didn't end up using it but when I tried assembling one of the layouts without the embossed pieces it looked bare so I tore it apart and used the embossed pieces! You will LOVE having this folder in your craft stash! 

And of course the Silver shimmer trim just 'made sense'...LOVE ME SOME SHIMMER TRIM! I only used a portion of the roll so just toss it back in your stash and pull it out for more projects in the future! 

So after you've placed your order just shoot me an email over HERE,contact me at my Business Facebook Page, or just leave me a comment on this blog post to let me know you'd like for me to send over Close to My Heart's Cutting guide for the 'Happy Happy Christmas' Workshop and It will be my Pleasure to get it right over to you! 

Okay...so remember, time is of the essence - the Additional retired products are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST and you won't want to miss these - what FABULOUS Christmas Gifts they will make!! 




And don't forget! While you're shopping be sure to grab the supplies to create the cards in my 'Merry and Bright' (50) card workshop (Link Here!!) The consumable products ended up being only .68 each! Whhhhhhat!? FOR REAL! I filmed a quick video of half of the cards over here on my Business Facebook Page, you are invited to hop over to have a peek! 

I think that's all for today gang! Thanks for joining me, you are such a BLESSING!
