  I will be holding my first Christmas Card Workshop in October!  

Gail Gross an Independent Close to my Heart Consultant designed these lovely cards
 and has graciously allowed me to use them in my workshop.  The cards are so pretty!  Who 
wouldn't want to get one of them in the mail!

The workshop will consist of making two of each of the five cards shown in the photo.   Cost 
of the workshop is $20 for all of the paper products to complete 10 cards.  In addition, each
 participant will need to purchase the following embellishments to finish the cards the way
 they are shown:

Z1263 - Bitty Sparkles - $2.95
Z2012 - Gold Sequins - $2.95
Z3090 - Red Enamel Gems - $3.95

If want to create the card box, there will be an additional $10 charge for the materials to
 cover and decorate the box.  Class date:

Here are two samples of the cards we will be making this month.


There are several new techniques in this class we will be learning.  The first card is the "sunburst" techniques.  This card will be showcasing all six paper patterns from the Sangria paper packet from Close to my Heart.(not the paper pattern in the sample)

The second technique we will be learning is called the "windowpane".  Windowpane cards look great but can be labor intensive.  This card uses a quick, easy method to obtain the paneled look.  Find out what the trick is by attending this months card class.  The third card is a surprise!

You can learn more about these cards on my card page on this blog.

Cost of the card class is $12 to make the three cards and includes all the materials.  Dates for the class are:
Monday, October 12th  9:30 am
Saturday, October 17th  9:30 am or 12 noon

You can email me at to sign up for the class.  Please indicate which day and time you will be attending.  Hope to see you there!
