Blossom Cardmaking Kit--buy the kit or sign up for the workshop!

Okay, I may sound like a broken record here, but I think this is my FAVORITE Cardmaking Kit that Close to My Heart has ever created!  First of all, I adore the stamp set--the images are cute and great for making birthday cards, which is what my customers most like to make.  You can ONLY get this stamp set as part of the Blossom Cardmaking Kit, and the kit is a great value at only $24.95.  You get two full accessory items (Coral Reef Sequins and Glacier Twine) plus all the paper, card bases and envelopes you'll need to make 15 cards.

You can sign up to attend my local workshop on Thursday, June 4th, or you can order the kit online through my WEBSITE (just click on "shop" and add item #G1095 to your cart) and make it at home.  The kit comes with a full color cutting guide.  If you're completing the kit at home, you'll need Black, Pear, Smoothie and Honey stamp pads.

Fifteen total cards--plus you'll have leftover paper and accesories that you can use to make more cards or other projects.

THIS KIT IS NOW OUT OF STOCK!  Check my most recent blog posts to see what new kits I have to offer!

I've been a Close to My Heart Consultant for 18 years, and from the very beginning, I've been designing layouts and cards for my local workshop clubs.  I've now decided to offer these projects to anyone who would like to purchase them!   For my very first Kit of the Month project pack, I'm featuring the Jackson paper.  You'll love the masculine colors--great for outdoor photos or "guy" pages.

Your $15 kit includes everything you need to create this beautiful layout page and three coordinating cards:  pre-cut papers, embellishments (sequins, twine, etc.), pre-stamped images (where needed), envelopes, a package of Jackson Complements (stickers) and a handout with instructions for putting the cards and layout together.

 Some close-up details of the layout featuring the Jackson papers and Complements.

Three coordinating cards

To purchase this kit for $15, click the "Buy Now" button below.  Once I receive payment, I will send it your way ($4 shipping applies)!  If you're a local customer, e-mail me directly to purchase.

May Stamp of the Month--Just Sayin'

A new month means a new Stamp of the Month!  What I like about this set (Just Sayin') is that you can add the little tags and accents to any layout or any card. . .the neutral shapes and designs will work with anything!   You can get the Stamp of the Month for only $5 during the month of May (with a $50 purchase) or you can buy it for $17.95 retail. 

This layout is featured in our current catalog.  I think they used at least seven images from the Stamp of the Month to add accents to this layout.  Note how they used the triangle shape to create a pennant across the top right corner--so cute!!
