'Taste of Summer' Workshop with Cutting Files!

It's HERE! I am ALWAYS SOOO Excited for May! 

In 'Close to My Heart' World we Celebrate National Scrapbooking Month in May! We always get a Fabulous Campaign each year and this year did not disappoint! 

Wait til you get your hands on THESE papers! :) The 'Taste of Summer' Papers are Just Incredible! 

Once again I have created a 'Studio Sus' Workshop using this Cheerful Collection! Check this ouuuuuut! 

This Kit stretched SO FAR, it was just Crazy! I can hardly believe how many projects came from just (1) Paper collection from adding some White Cardstock and Card Bases!

The 'Taste of Summer' Campaign includes a couple of MAY 2015 EXCLUSIVE Items! We can purchase a Paper Pack with (12) Double Sided Cardstock weight Patterned Papers! 

The Backsides are Just as Adorable! And How CUTE are those Zip Strips?! 


The Paper Collection is only $8.95 with NO Purchasing requirements or Quantity Limits! You can purchase as many paper packs as you'd like for only $8.95 Each! :) 

They have also created an Exclusive Stamp set to coordinate with the 'Taste of Summer' Paper Collection! And it is CUUUTE! Super 'Punny', right?! 

The Stamp set is a 'D' Sized (6" X 6" carrier sheet) and can be purchased for $17.95 only during May, the Campaign Month!

I had already planned my workshop before the stamp set was made available for Consultants to order so my workshop does not use the Featured stamp set but I have access to additional Workshops that DO feature the Stamp set and will be happy to send those to you if you add it to your shopping cart! 

So, Let's get to the Good Part, Right!?

My Workshop will Create (12) 12" X 12" Scrapbook Pages and (16) Greeting cards just be adding in some White Daisy Cardstock and a few Card Bases/Envelopes from our Bulk Pack! 

Here are each of the Projects in detail...

Layout #1 

Layout #2

Layout #3

Layout #4

Layout #5

Layout #6

And here are some photos of the Cards! You will create (2) each of (8) designs. 

Just like  my previous workshop packages, I will send the files and cutting guide via email to anyone ordering the workshop supplies (or any order of $25) from my CTMH Shopping website.   

These are files from a previous workshop as I have JUST finished creating the 'Taste of Summer' files and have not yet had the opportunity to print/photograph them! But, As you can see, they are very detailed, professional, as well as colorful and easy to read. 

The entire set of files include; 
- Taste of Summer Welcome Letter/Cover Sheet
- Taste of Summer 23 page color cutting guide 
- Taste of Summer 'The Rest of the Story' 
(Photo suggestions, additional notes and tips to assist with workshop completion) 
- Taste of Summer Layout #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, and #6 (detailed color photos of each of the completed layouts for assembly assistance)
- Taste of Summer Cards (detailed color photos of each of the completed cards for assembly assistance) 

Close to My Heart Consultants purchasing this workshop with the intention of distributing my files to their own customers (benefiting their own business) will also receive; 

- CTMH Consultant Release Form
- CTMH Consultant Information
(Supply List, suggested coordinating 'up sell' items, etc.) 

CTMH Consultants may purchase the 'rights' to use my designs and files to support their own business simply by placing any $25 order on my CTMH Shopping website.
