'Create Kindness' Cardmaking Workshop with Cutting Files!

OH My Goodness! How SA-WEEET are these?! I can hardly wait for you to get this GOODNESS into your hands! :) 

Did you know September is National Stamping Month?! Yup! and once again (in FINE FORM) Close to My Heart has given us a Fabulous Campaign to Celebrate the occasion!

Let me introduce you to the 'Create Kindness' Kit! 

The 'Create Kindness' card kit contains all of the supplies needed to create (24) beautiful handmade cards that you can use to brighten someone's day! 

Thanks to the pre-printed card bases, these cards come together in no time, leaving you more time to do something thoughtful for someone! 

The 'Create Kindness' card kit (CC1145) includes (24) pre-printed card bases with envelopes, (8) exclusive M-size stamp sets, a 2" X 2" Acrylix block, and an archival black mini pigment ink pad, all packed snugly in the My Acrylix Mini Stamp Organizer! 

The 'Create Kindness' products can be purchased as a bundle for a 15% discount or you can purchase the products separately - the choice is yours! The Link to add this to your shopping cart is HERE

Okay, so you KNOW I couldn't just create them the way you're supposed to, right?! (HAHA) I HAD to stray and do my 'own thing'...cause that's what I do, right!? (Wink) 

Remember my 'Adventure Fundamentals' (18) page scrapbooking workshop I released a couple of weeks ago? 

I created all (18) pages using only HALF a package of the Adventure Fundamentals paper collection (adding Black & White cardstock) and I promised that I had something else in the works to use up the remaining half?! 

Well Feast your eyes on THESE! 

SOOOOO Cute, right?! Can you believe that this workshop features (48) Cards (Yes, FORTY EIGHT!) using the 2nd Half of the Adventure Fundamentals Paper collections, a few sheets of Black & White Cardstock, Cardbases, and products from the 'Create Kindness' Campaign!? 

Okay, so here is the run down...Since the 'Create Kindness' Campaign features products to create (24) cards I have split this workshop into (2) sets of 24 cards.

(24) cards will feature the use of the Envelopes, 3" X 3" pre-printed card, pre-cut circle, and the featured stamp sets. (Photo below of 1 each of the 12 different designs)...

The 2nd set of (24) cards feature designs using the 'Create Kindness' Stamp sets only! (Photo below of 1 each of the 12 different designs)...

If you'd like all (48) of your cards to feature the 'Create Kindness' Envelopes, Pre-Printed Cardbases, and circles all you need to do is purchase a separate set of those (remember, you can get the products in a discounted bundle or purchase them separately). You can see all of the individual products HERE

The really neat thing about the structure of this workshop is that the cutting guide does not change whether you choose to create the cards with the additional 'Create Kindness' supplies or without them! So you can choose how you create them! 

I love both versions! With or Without, Your choice! Here are a few 'side by sides' to give you a peek at a few of the designs up close! :) 



As you can see, I have used the pre-cut circles (provided in the 'Create Kindness' kit) on the front of the card as an embellishment OR attached to the front of the smaller 3" X 3" Card (tucked inside the envelope).  

I think the envelope on the front of the card would be a super cute way of holding a Gift card, Ghirardelli Chocolate, or any small treat you might like to include! The possibilities are pretty endless in regard to making this kit unique to your own crafting preferences! 

So, now I guess we can get to some more of the details... 

Just like my previous workshop packages, I will send the files and cutting guide via email to my customers ordering the workshop supplies (see supply list below) from my CTMH Shopping Website 

I spend many days (weeks) working on my files and I am super proud of them! As you can see, they are both professional as well as easy to read. (the files below are from a previous workshop - I have not photographed the 'Create Kindness' Files yet)
