January 2017 CTMH News

It's Time for a New Expressions!

Hopefully, your holidays were merry and bright and this new year is starting off well for you. Time just keeps on going and January is already in full swing. Let  me share some of the fun new things Close to my Heart and I have in store for you this year.

Welcome Home

Decorate your home with the beautiful Welcome Home wreath kit.

Welcome Home Wreath
Every January, we celebrate National Papercrafting Month as a way of acknowledging the pure joy of playing with paper! We scrapbook with it, we make cards with it, we decorate with it-in short, we craft with it!
This year, we're celebrating the joys of paper-crafted home décor with the beautiful Welcome Home wreath kit. This kit comes with pre-cut pieces you can simply pop out and attach to the sturdy chipboard wreath base, making a welcoming décor piece for your home.

There are four ways you can get the wreath kit:

  1. Buy it for $18.95-no qualifying purchase required!
  2. Get it for free with a qualifying $60 purchase!*
  3. Get it for free by hosting a party that reaches the second level of Hostess Rewards.
  4. Get it for free when you sign up to be a Consultant!
No matter how you get your Welcome Home wreath kit-or how many you get-you are going to love how easy this kit makes it to add a little more papercrafted beauty to your life.

Check out my blog how you can get a free class with me to help you put this wreath together!

These wreaths we have for just this month are an ideal item for even the "non-scrapbookers" or "non-card makers". They are a fun craft to put together, there is no cutting, no stamping - everything is ready for you. You just need glue!

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
