Open House Thank You!

This was my very first Holiday Open House with Close to My Heart. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, "Thank you so much!" to everyone that was able to get here this past weekend. I really hope you enjoyed the event. The house smelled of apple cider all weekend, it can't get much better then that! So again I really appreciate all the customers and friends that were able to make it out.
Thank you! Chris

I do have to say this one took me a bit to come up with my idea. But I love the way it turned out!
I took the Designer Creations Ruby Paper Bags and turned them into a multi-purpose gift card holder. This is great when you want to give just a little bit more then the gift card on it's own, creating more of a present. Who wouldn't want to get one of these as a gift??
These are the detail pictures! Enjoy! Chris

I do have a few different workshops at this time of the year. One of my favorite ones is the "Calendar Class". Everyone needs a new calendar! I have designed a Workshop project that customers can do together or at home alone. 
The workshop is created around Close To My Hearts Flip Stand, a great product that is sometimes over looked. The general idea of the workshop is that everything is pre-cut and ready to go. The kit including the FlipStand is $30 (and must be local) or you can order your own Flip Stand a purchase the workshop kit for $15+shipping. Now the photos....

 The kit includes a cardstock background, a MyReflections paper front, a colour cardstock mat, a monthly calendar and a mat. The matted piece above the calendar can be used for a photo or stamped for decoration. Everyone can then use their own embellishment to decorate how they wish.
It is a wonderful way to spend an evening with some friends!

Studio J November Promotion!

There is a fantastic promotion from Close To My Heart this month called the Lucky 5! Studio J is trying 5 years old and they are celebrating! There are so many fun and exciting uses for Studion J pages. Why not have some fun and start to play today. Here is where you can find out more!


November marks the five-year anniversary of Studio J®, and that means it’s your lucky month, with five amazing ways to win through Studio J and Close To My Heart social media!
First, throughout the month of November, all layouts purchased in Studio J are $5! That is a savings of over 25% off of retail—an unprecedented deal! 
Your second chance to win big must come by sheer luck: every fifth order placed in Studio J during November receives a FREE surprise Close To My Heart accessory in its shipping box! The accessory has a retail value of $5 or more.
If luck doesn’t smile on you in that way, you might stumble upon it by finding a little extra something in your Studio J box. Five “golden tickets” will be sent out during the month of November with randomly selected Studio J print orders! This “golden ticket” is redeemable for one of Close To My Heart’s new D-ring albums* loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors™. 
For a fourth way to win, simply create new, gorgeous layouts in Studio J, select your favorites, and then post pictures of them on Close To My Heart’s Facebook page using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. After November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries based on their artistry and creativity and each of these winners will receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!
And there is one last way to win: take your new Studio J artwork and post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. Just as it is with Facebook, after November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries to receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!
