Everyday Celebration Card Kit

This Card Kit is awesome!! The best thing about it is you can make it into a Scrapbook Kit too!! The kit comes with 4 - 12 X 12 patterned papers and 2 full sheets of cardstock (CS), an exclusive stamp set, a package of chocolate embellishments, chocolate ribbon, a full color Step by Step Instructional Guide, 16 card bases and envelopes, and even two small distressing inks! You will have everything you need to get what you see below (except clear acrylix blocks, if you don't already own them).

I loved these exclusive papers so much that I only made 1/2 of the cards so I would have enough to make these 2 pages. I had to add 2 sheets of Colonial White CS and about a half of a sheet of chocolate and half a sheet sweet leaf from my stash. I will be offering a FREE workshop in November for anyone who purchases this Everyday Celebration Kit from me, and I'll throw in those extra pieces of CS I was talking about when you attend! Come to my New Idea Book Extravaganza on Wed the 16th or the Make-up day on Sat the19th to see this kit for yourself!! Be sure to RSVP for some goodies!!
Here is a picture of the stamp set. It will be unavailable after Sept 30 th!! I love that bracket/flourish image!


Here is a pic of the card base, an envelope, the foam squares and the embellishments. The cards are sweet, they come with that diecut edge!! Who ever you make these cards for will surely think you are a professional!!! (they don't have to know you got a little help from Close to my Heart!!)!

The Instructional guide gives you step by step directions on how to cut your papers, where to glue them down, what to stamp and how to embellish.........Easy Peasy!! If you follow the directions you will make 16 cards (2 each of 8 designs)
Here are the first 4 designs: See the diecut edge on those cards and how the patterned paper "peeks" from the inside of the card to the front!!!
And the other 4 designs:

See on my sidebar, to the right how you can get one of your own Celebration Card Kits!

Playdate Workshop for October

Grace Playdate Workshop

Details: I made 8 pages using the Basic Kit, with a lot of supplies left over!

I'll throw in those pieces of CS for FREE when you attend my playdate workshop!
All you need to bring is a 12 inch paper trimmer, standard adhesive (whatever you use for your pages) and ribbon adhesive (I use the Tombow and/or glue dots).

The Basic Kit includes a full pack of Grace Level 2 paper, the Beautiful Flourish stamp set (this is an exclusive stamp set, only available with the Basic and Best Kits!), a package of Rustic Edge Anchors and an awesome Workshop Guide that you can use over and over again!! The guide even includes instructions to make cards as well! This kit is so versatile....you can make only scrapbook pages, only cards or some of both! Whatever suits you best! This Basic Kit has a retail value of $33.85, and the company has discounted it and you pay $29.95! How sweet is that!!

Best Kit = Basic Kit + add ons $41.85
(the add ons are Basic Craft Buttons and the Crystal Blue Waxy Fax)

"Make it your own" Kit = purchase paper pack of your choice and other products totaling at least $30. This kit was added on so you could customize your own "Playdate Kit" If you happen to not like the monthly Kit I have featured you can make your own and it still counts toward "Playdate Points!"
