Miracle Acrylic Album

A few weeks ago I showed you the 14 cards I was able to make using Close to My Heart's beautiful Miracle kit. Now to show how versatile this kit is, I want to show you the breathtaking Acrylic album I made and thanks to Vicki W. and Pam K. for the inspiration with the design. After you look at the photos, look at the end of my post to see how you can attend my workshop this June and create your own album, 14 cards, or 2 layouts.

Now if you want to make your own Miracle Acrylic Album, the 14 cards, or complete the 2 layouts and a few extra cards then sign-up for my workshop on:

Thursday, June 17th

from 6:30 PM-9:00 PM

RSVP by Thursday, June 10th

All you need to do is order or earn your own Miracle kit and click here for details on how to get your own kit. If you do choose to do the Acrylic album, then please order your album at least 2 weeks before the workshop in order to make sure you receive it in time for class. If you cannot attend the class, you can still take advantage of these special projects. All you need to do is just ask me about getting directions and photos to help you create the project on your own time.

Now the cost is just an extra $6 which will include all the extra Cardstock, accessories, and cutting guide to create your own unique Miracle project. Now if you're like me, you have a hard time deciding which project to create. No worries, just order/earn additional Miracle kits and you can create all of these projects :)

I hope you enjoy the beautiful and bright colors of the Miracle kit, and I know you will love to play with the NEW Irresistible Dimensional Elements that have a resist pattern that when covered with ink or chalk, jut pop through. So easy! Now remember, the Miracle kit is only available through the end of this month or while supplies last, so don't wait to order your kit today and please contact me to order yours.

Just Scrap It!

This last weekend I had a Just Scrap It! retreat and had a fabulous time with all the 39 women who attended! We all got tons of scrapping and crafting done, got little OR no sleep and ate tons of chocolate, so all in all it was a great time. I was a little nervous about running such a large retreat, but everyone was so willing to help me when things got crazy, that I am definitely going to do them again.

In fact I have already scheduled my next one for October 29th-31st at the Green Lake conference center in Lone Tree Lodge. That time of year should be just beautiful with all the leaves changing and since we are so close, you can even make it back in time to take your kids or grandkids trick-or-treating! Here are all the details so you can mark your calendar and come and hang out with me for the weekend!

Friday, October 29th-Sunday, October 31st
Thursday, October 28th-October 31st

Frid.-Sun is just $130
Thurs.-Sun. is just $180

All meals are included as well as the use of all my stamp sets, ink pads, and miscellaneous tools and punches, and the crafting room is very large and roomy so you have plenty of room to bring your supplies and spread them out! The sleeping rooms are all twin beds and have a bathroom for either 2 or 3 people, which is a real plus if you like your privacy. Lone Tree Lodge is located in the Green lake Conference center in Green Lake, WI which is a beautiful area with lots of roads and trails you can walk along and enjoy the fresh air and nature.

If you're interested in coming to this weekend please contact me so we can arrange getting your $30 deposit in and save your spot. If you're still not sure you want to come please watch the slide show below and see the fun and crazy time we all had together, and I bet we change your mind!

Scrap Fest!

I just wanted to invite you all to a great one and a half day scrap event this May, and what's even better then being able to scrap for one and a half days, is that all of the money raised that weekend will go to help a friend of mine and her daughter Maliyah who at just seven weeks old had life-saving heart surgery.Here's the details of the crop so you can mark your calendar and come and hang out with me!

Friday, May 21st from 6 PM-Midnight for $15

Saturday, May 22nd from 10 AM-10 PM for $25

At the WWII Memorial Building in Wautoma, WI

Snacks and beverages will be provided and raffles and make-n-takes
will be available to purchase at great prices!

I love the options for this scrap fest because if you can only attend Friday, you can, OR if you can only attend for even a 1/2 day on Saturday then the cost is just $15. What's even better, is that if you can attend both days, then you only have to pay $35 for the entire time. If it were me, I would try to come and drop my stuff off on Friday night, so I can stake out a good place and crop for a bit, then come back for the whole day Saturday.

If you are interested please contact either my friend Jodi Gustke at 920-787-0064 or you can talk to me and I'll get you set-up.

Studio J is Here!

I've been a little busy this last week and didn't have a chance to finally start talking about Studio J. So today I thought why not talk about it and encourage you all to start playing right now! There is a short and informative video that you can watch here.

Studio scrapbooking is for EVERYONE: those who already love to scrap with papers and embellishments will love adding this to their scrapbooks, those who already enjoy scrapping digitally will be blown away by this new program, and those who have never scrapbooked now have a great reason to try! See what I mean...EVERYONE!

Some of the most popular questions I have been asked lately about Studio J are the following

* What is Studio J™ Design Software?
Studio J™ is free online scrapbooking design software brought to you by Close To My Heart. Studio J helps you easily create custom-printed two-page layouts using our foundational scrapbook patterns, exclusive color palette, and themed designs all delivered in 12" × 12" custom prints ready for your albums. It’s a snap!

* Is Studio J easy to use?
Studio J software is extremely intuitive and easy to use. The program walks you through five steps that include:
1. uploading your photos;
2. choosing your desired themed kit;
3. selecting an exclusive layout pattern;
4. adding photos, embellishments, titles, and journaling;
5. and purchasing custom-printed layouts ready for a cherished album.

* I love Close To My Heart products. Will Studio J use the same great papers, patterns, colors, and embellishments?
Of course! If you love Close To My Heart’s scrapbooking philosophy, then you will love Studio J.

* Do I need to download any software to my computer to use Studio J?
Not at all! You only need an Internet connection, and then you simply log in to your Consultant’s MyCTMH website to get started. Feel free to design to your heart’s content—you are not required to buy anything or provide any personal information to get started!

* Can I save what I am working on and come back to it later?
You bet! You can create a customer profile that allows you to save and return to a project in progress at a later time. Your active projects will be saved for up to 90 days, giving you plenty of time to work on them. You extend that timeline for your active projects by 90 days each time you make a purchase, and your purchased projects will remain archived for one full year after purchase.

* Do I need a printer that can print 12" × 12" pages to use Studio J?
No. Your Studio J layouts are not available for you to print from a home computer. In fact, we take care of the printing for you. When you purchase your designed layouts, we print and ship them quickly and directly to you using only top quality printing technology and archival-quality papers.

* What is the price?
You are not charged a thing until you order your custom prints. The price per printed two-page layout is $12.95. We also offer some fantastic rewards for larger orders. You can receive FREE Memory Protectors® to protect your layouts in your albums, and FREE shipping/handling based on the number of layout prints you purchase in a single order as follows:
o For 5–9 layout purchases: You’ll receive a pack of 5 Memory Protectors FREE!
o For 10–20 layout purchases: You’ll receive FREE shipping/handling PLUS a FREE pack of 5 Memory Protectors for every 5 layouts in your single order.

* When can I begin creating with Studio J?
You will be able to start creating layouts with Studio J right now by accessing my website and setting up an online account.

If you are still not convinced then click here to see the Studio J gallery and check out many of the beautiful layouts that have been created easily using Studio J. You can also contact me to see my own personal Studio J layouts that I've created.

Luau FUN!

Last week I invited everyone to come over to my house for a Luau, and also get the first look at the Close To My Heart Summer 2010 Idea book. Somehow we crammed 30 of us in my living room which was decked out in tropical decor, complete with a Tikki Hut (thanks Diane B) where I revealed some of the NEW products and two 7 foot palm trees that I borrowed from my friend (thanks Laura H.)

The night was a lot of fun and I wanted to share all the fun and crazy pictures of the night. You will notice that in a lot of the pictures, my 8 year old daughter Emma had to be part of the action. I think I have a future CTMH consultant in training :) I do a themed party 3 times a year and reveal the newest Close to My Heart Idea book, so look for my details this August as I reveal the 2010 Autumn/Winter book and hopefully you can come and and be part of the FUN!
