Wander Scrapbooking Workshop!

posted in: General Info | 0

I’m super excited to announce that my next workshop will be a scrapbooking kit with the brand new Wander collection! I’ll be using a workshop designed by Tina Lovell. It’s super easy to put together, no stamping!

Here’s a quick look at the pages:

I’ll be teaching these pages the week of August 2, with a video walking you through the cutting first and then we’ll create the pages together on the Friday and maybe the Saturday. All of this will happen in an exclusive Facebook group. If you’re not on Facebook, let me know and I’ll make sure the videos get sent to you after they’re live.

What will you need?

You will receive an email with 2 pdfs, one for cutting and one for assembling. To sign up, just purchase the supplies you need from the above list on my website (click here). I’ll connect with you afterwards.

I hope you’ll join me!

Hillside Cottage Card Workshop

posted in: General Info | 0

I’m back with my second card workshop! I hope that offering these workshops helps you with creative block or even just gets you creating. Creating has been proven to help with all sorts of things and I can guarantee you’ll feel happier once you get inky. 🙂

Hillside Cottage workshop cards
You’ll create these 8 cards in our workshop.

All 8 of these designs were based on card patterns in the brand new Make It From Your Heart Vol. 5. We will be using Hillside Cottage paper and wood shapes, as well as Every Bit of Wonderful (our stamp set to raise funds for Operation Smile) and Blue Belle Glitter Gems, along with the Scalloped Circle Thin Cut.

We will have 2 options for registering for this workshop.

  1. Purchase your supplies from my website (https://simplycreating.closetomyheart.ca/). Order all the required items, or choose a different paper or stamp set, or whatever you’d like. As long as your order totals $30 before shipping and tax (and after VIP credits are used), yo can send a request for the instructions to create these cards.
  2. Sign up for a pre-stamped, pre-cut kit. This means you’ll get all the pieces for all 8 cards, separated in envelopes and ready to be assembled. You will receive full packages of Hillside Cottage wood shapes and Blue Belle Glitter Gems as part of this kit. If you live close to me and can pick up your kit the cost is just $40. If I need to mail it to you, anywhere in Canada, you’ll pay $47. If you live outside Canada and would like to order a kit, we can do that, too. You’ll just pay $40 CAD, plus any shipping costs.

Click on the individual photos below to get a closer look.

Sign up deadline for purchasing the kit is May 25. Once you order the kit, or purchase the supplies, you will be invited to join to my exclusive Facebook group. You’ll receive instructions in the group as well as emailed to you. I will go live in the group at designated times to walk you through the assembly of the cards. I can’t tell you when yet because I will need time to get the kits assembled and in the mail. Not on Facebook? That’s okay. All videos will be uploaded to YouTube and given an unlisted link, which will also be sent to all participants.

Party Time Picture My Life Card Workshop

posted in: Cards, General Info, Workshops | 0

I’m so excited to be back designing workshops and this one will be so fun! Sending cards is such a great way to lift someone’s day right now, while we continue to distance from each other. And what better time to send a card than for that special someone’s birthday. This 20-card workshop will give you a nice stash of birthday cards, along with an anniversary card and some other just-because cards.

Here is what all the cards look like:

We will use the Party Time paper pack + sticker sheet, along with some cardstock and the Black & White dots. I’ll also be showing you how you can dress up the cards even more, with items you may already have. After the 31st I will send you an email with a link to an exclusive Facebook group where I will be teaching through live videos. Not on Facebook? That’s okay. All videos will be uploaded to YouTube where they can be accessed with special links.

How do you get access to the workshop? Place an order of $60 or more on my website and then send me an email or message indicating you’d like the instructions and I’ll send them to you. If you would like to create the cards exactly how I’ve done, you will need the following items:

You may have stamps that will work without needing to purchase the stamp sets I used. You may already have the inks needed. You could use Black ink to stamp, but I would recommend using the colours I listed above. Or maybe you have paper and cards you think might work. The cards have been created around the unique designs of the Party Time set, but you’re welcome to try your hand at other designs!

Remember, also, that with a $60 order you earn the Stamp of the Month at a deep discount, just $6.75. (Or if you are a VIP customer you get it free!)

Don’t wait to place your order. Signups for this workshop will close on March 31.
