Saturday, December 1, 2012
12pm-4pm
Fee: $15

This fun, annual workshop includes 12 cards, 4 each of 3 designs and a cute little box to hold your card creations.  You will fall in love with this traditional and elegant paper pack: Pear & Partridge. All of your supplies will be precut and ready to assemble. All you need to bring is your own adhesive and your Christmas spirit! Need more than just a dozen cards? Additonal card kits are available for $10 each.



In addition to the Christmas card kit, I am offering a special papercrafting project for just $15! You will make this beautiful handcrafted star which perfectly compliments your Christmas cards!

If you choose to add the Pear & Partridge Star, I recommend purchasing Liquid Glass ($6.95) and Bonding Memories Glue ($6.95), if you don't already own them. You will need them to complete the star. (Special thanks to Brenda Rose for inspiring this design!)

All New and Exclusive Cricut Cartridge!

Exciting news from Close to My Heart!

All new Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book (available August 1)

 
If you follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed my posts last week about the Close to My Heart annual convention in Dallas. Woo hoo! We had a great time and there was a lot of exciting news announced during this fun, annual event. The biggest and best announcement for me was the brand new and exclusive to CTMH Cricut "Artiste" cartridge that just joined the CTMH catalog of products. My "Art Philosophy" cartridge (released last year by CTMH) has lived in my machine for the past year. Both of these cartridges are exclusive to CTMH and can only be purchased through me. There are some SERIOUSLY COOL things on this new "Artiste" cartridge! From cupcake wrappers, party ensembles, sun and clouds, mustaches, pinwheels, font, ferris wheel and merry-go-round, to strawberry boxes, cupcake boxes, treat boxes, coffin box, rosettes, interactive cards, pop up cards, fancy envelopes and more this is a 700 image packed cartridge!

Click here to take a look!


But wait! There's more!

* This cartridge comes with 3 "D" size stamp sets (retail $17.95 each, yours free with the cartridge)that coordinate with the images on the cartridge and are exclusive to the cartridge bundle!

* You will also receive 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard elements (free) with your cartridge bundle!

* Price is just $99 plus shipping and tax.

* You can purchase the Stamp of the Month for just $5 with your cartridge!

*  Orders begin on August 1st, 2012 for all this awesomeness! I'm taking preorders now! Just $25 down to reserve a cartridge for yourself. Last year, the "Art Philosophy" sold a year's inventory in just two weeks!  So don't delay!

* Or order directly from my website (beginning August 1) and have it shipped to your door via Fedex from our corporate warehouse - CLICK HERE to visit my website now!

I was able to order "Artisite" a bit early as a consultant so I will be sharing FUN projects using Artiste and our some of our new papers and stamps starting the middle of next week! 



And....If you've ever thought about becoming a Close to My Heart consultant now is the time to take the plunge because they just announced a brand new $49 Consultant Starter Kit that is full of $130 in product!  This kit is perfect for scrappers and papercrafters and/or those just starting out, who may want to try the product at a great price!

Not only that, starting August 1st and while supplies last, they will send you a beautiful CTMH branded damask bag! I'd love to have you join my team and share the fun!

Final Dotty for You Techinques

This is the final post in my series on extra techniques that can be found in the limited edition Close to My Heart Dotty for You paper pack....

Technique #4: Creating Visual Transitions



Carry the neutral foundation color, in this case Grey Wool, onto the other elements of your art piece to help the eye easily transition between elements, like the colorful chevron box top and the sides of the box.


Don't forget the Bonus Projects included in the Dotty for You insert!

Technique #5:  Use Neutral Inks for a Crisp, Clean Look
To create a card with a clean, crisp look, use the dominant neutral color to stamp your sentiment.


Want your own Dotty for You paper packet?

Dotty for You Techniques!

Continuing my series on extra techniques that can be found in the limited edition Close to My Heart Dotty for You paper pack....

Technique #3: Using Patterned Paper

Helping Adjacent Patterns POP!



To help two adjacent patterns stand out individually, separate them with a sold color.  Notice the butterfly B&T* paper is backed with cocoa cardstock and the polka-dotted B&T* is layered with the kraft cardstock. (*B&T refers to patterned paper that has background and texture.)

Creating a Bohemian Look


Combine several B&T paper patterns and colors to create a trendy, bohemian chic look. You can find this technique on the Simple Pleasures card.

Continuing my series on extra techniques that can be found in the limited edition Dotty for You paper pack....

It's National Scrapbooking Month!


You will love the colors and textures in the new Dotty for You paper packet, available only while supplies last during National Scrapbooking Month!  I love the fabulous artwork you can create! Each promotional paper packet includes an insert with a picture of the artwork, recipes, and a unique technique to inspire you.

Tor order the Dotty for You paper packet, simply go to my website, http://jillk.myctmh.com!

I'll be sharing extra technique ideas, not included in the paper packet insert but using the same artwork, over the next few days, so follow my blog for lots of ideas!

Technique #1: The Polaroid Snapshot (found on the Sisterly Love layout)



Create a Polaroid snapshot look by first cutting out a rounded-corner rectangle the size of your focal point. Then, cut a larger rectangle around the negative space, creating the look of a Polaroid. For example, if your subject is 3″ × 2″, cut a rounded 3″ rectangle using the Cricut® machine then discard the rectangle and keep the negative space, cutting that piece at 4″ × 2½”. Add journaling to the empty white space at the bottom and attach it to the layout at an angle using 3-D foam tape. You’ll now be able to create the Polaroid look for any kind of picture without needing a Polaroid camera!

Want your own Dotty for You paper packet?  Here's how:
Celebrate National Scrapbooking Month in May by mixing and matching to your heart’s content with our new Dotty for You paper packet! The trendy patterns on the front of the papers coordinate perfectly with the dots on the reverse side, giving you lots of options for crafting colorful layouts, cards, and other projects. Dotty for You includes 24 specially designed, coordinating B&T Duos® sheets (2 each of 12 patterns) and an artwork idea insert to get your creative juices flowing.

There are three ways to get this exclusive Dotty for You paper packet, valued at $19.95:

Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
Adhesive
3x3 Post It Notes

Use the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the following:
Cocoa Cardstock 3 ½”, card, square 2 (p. 33)
Lagoon Cardstock 3”, square 1 (p. 23)
Stella B&T 2 ¾”, square 1 (p. 23)
Colonial White Cardstock 2 ¾”, flower 3 (p. 57)



Directions:

1. Assuming a standard size Post It Note pad, score the Cocoa cardstock at 3 ¾” and 3 ¼”.

2. Stamp the flower frame image on the Colonial White cardstock.

3. Using second generation stamping, stamp the petal image in Lagoon ink on each petal of the flower.

4. Using the rock and roll stamping technique and second generation stamping, stamp the outside edges of each petal in Olive ink.

5. Using a ½” x 2” strip of Colonial White cardstock and Cocoa ink, stamp the “A note for you” message. Trim the edge of the strip to form a “v”.

6. Sponge all edges in Cocoa ink, if desired.

7. Wrap the Cocoa cardstock around the Post It Note pad and adhere the back of the Post It Note to the Cocoa cardstock.

8. Use Cocoa ribbon to wrap the spine of the Cocoa cardstock cover. (This will cover the original scoring from the Cricut.) Add some adhesive to the inside of the spine and the top of the Post It Note pad and press firmly.

9. Attach the flower (with a pop dot, if desired) and squares to the cover.

10. Attach the Durables Stud to the center of the flower.

11. Tuck the “A note for you” just under the stud and adhere.

New Creative Products!

I am eager to showcase some new products and I wanted to bring it to ALL of you today!


Color Ready Ribbon is a great new product that you can change the color of by sponging with ink (in one or more colors); markering; stamping on or chalking would work too. However, one of my favorite things would be to spritz it with water and crush it in your hand and let it dry. The crumpled look definitely gives it a vintage feel. This great product has 10 yards of ribbon and is only $6.95 (plus tx/ship).



Our new wooden accessories ROCK! Check out our garden collection … it really adds quite a bit of pop to either cards or scrapbook pages. Just sponge in with our ink pads, stamp with filigree stamps to make a unique look, or leave as is!


The wooden shells are showcased in our catalog … showing you how to add pearl paint and markers to make a slight but interesting difference.



Have you ever used VELVET RUBONS? Well, we have a new collection that come in dark chocolate or black and can really add a fabulous texture to your creations.

The sheets of velvet can make a great addition to our creations. You pick out the scrollwork you like and add it to your card, layout, or 3D item. Here you can view them on our 3D Cricut Cut Art Philosophy Boxes:



They work so well with the March Stamp of the Month!

If you feel they are inspiring you and you would like to make a purchase, go directly to my website http://jillk.myctmh.com or email me at JillLKaale@aol.com to place your order for you or answer any questions.

Before you say YES or NO.... read the story below....I borrowed this from Tina Sutton, a CTMH super star...but it's my story, too!


Once upon a time, there was a lady who had a favorite scrapbooking store. She absolutely loved the product quality of everything she purchased at this store and decided she wanted a career with this company. So one day, she walked into the store and asked to speak to the manager. She said, "I love your products and want to have a career with your company. This is what I would like to do....


I want to make 22%-35% commission on everything I sell.


I know I will want to play with new products when they arrive, so I would also like free product credit each month!


Also, I scrapbook and papercraft at home, so I want a discount on all products that I purchase.


In addition for each new person I bring into the business and train, I'd like to receive a bonus as well as commissions on everything they sell too.


I want inspirational training opportunities and the opportunity to learn from others in the business.


I also want a chance to earn fabulous prizes and vacations.


Oh, and I'm not into the 9-5 thing, my family always comes first!!!!. So, I'll work when it is convenient for me.

Well, what do you think the store manager said to that? (I can't type that here! LOL) But what I can say is that he or she would be speechless or laugh. But if you asked me those questions, I would not laugh at you!

THAT IS MY STORY WITH CLOSE TO MY HEART!!!!!

I get free products each month. The more that I sell, the more I get! I can use that credit monthly or save it up- the choice is mine!

I get one heck of a discount on my own supplies.  I really just do this to support my "scrapbooking habit".

You can earn the best rewards with Close To My Heart- everything from free products to Brighton Luggage to cruises and other exotic trips.

I work hard, but my schedule is flexible. I work the hours that I want to work!

Join my team in March and get a FREE CRICUT ART PHILOSOPHY CARTRIDGE OR $100 in free select product!
