January Blog Hop!

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 EVERYONE!! I hope you all have a WONDERFUL year, and I look forward to sharing it with you! Now, onto what you have all been waiting for, the FIRST Stamp of the Month for 2010!

This month's SOTM is called True Friends (D1406) and it is an amazing set of 11 stamps. I hope you'll hop along with us. I cannot wait to see all of the artwork created by my incredibly talented Close to My Heart "sistahs" as we like to call ourselves!

When you're done here, the next stop is Krista Ritskes' Blog, and don't forget to keep hopping! You won't want to miss all the artwork created. So many different ideas all made with the SAME stamp set!
I have created this card, and a cute little tag for a gift box:



For the card, I used a pattern from our "How-To" cardmaking book, "Wishes". The pattern can be found on page 78 and is titled "Sentiment Secured".
To create these items I used the following products:
D1406- True Friends
X7119B- Veranda Home Level 2 Paper Packet (I'm LOVING ALL the new paper packs)
1244- Garden Gree CS
X5642- Cocoa CS
Z2114- Cocoa Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Z2120- Garden Green Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Z2165- Juniper Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Z1206- Craft Buttons, Basic
3364- DMC Embroidery Floss
Be sure to continue hopping! I know you won't be disappointed! And don't be afraid to leave comments of the work you see! We all LOVE feedback!

Ring in the NEW YEAR!!

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that I have been in a bit of a slump lately, but I am VERY MUCH looking forward to an exciting 2010!! I am working hard to get the January calendar prepared and posted, as well as get other things together.

In 2010 we will be adding a Copic Marker Club!!! Yep, I went to Eau Claire, WI for certification with these awesome markers and am looking forward to bringing classes your way. I have put a lot of time into finding the closest colors I could to the Close To My Heart color palette so that all of our artwork we create with the Close To My Heart products will be as beautiful as can be. So, be sure to watch for upcoming details. The club will start in February, but the deadline to sign up for the first class will be in January. I have to order the markers, and since they are high quality and not inexpensive, I will ONLY order for those that have paid for and reserved their spots. At February's class, you will receive the information for the March class, but it will need to be paid for in February..........

Anyway, there will be another calendar club that will begin in March or April, be watching for that information as well.

The kits of the month this Idea Book cycle are AMAZING! I am having a WONDERFUL time getting the samples together so that you may physically see how beautiful they are. I think I am in love with ALL FOUR new paper packs this go 'round!

Ohhhhh, and do I have something GREAT to share with all of you SOON! I have also been busy playing with Studio J! It is still in it's BETA form being tested by the Close To My Heart Consultants, but should be released this spring for all of our customers. You will LOVE this! I will never fully be a Studio (digital) scrapbooker because I like the feel of the products in my hands, but this sure is a great alternative to play catch up, to make a gift, to experiment with. However, if you ARE into Studio (digital) scrapbooking, you are going to LOVE this product!! NO upfront costs, NO downloading software to your computer, you pay NOTHING to try to product out, to create your artwork.......you ONLY pay when you ORDER your finished product! It's sooooo exciting, I cannot wait to share it with you!

So, although I have been MIA (missing in action), I am gearing up for a FANTABULOUS (yeah I know, it's not a REAL word) year in 2010.

Happy New Year to all of you. Have a safe and happy holiday. Things will be in full swing again at My Creative Clubhouse beginning Monday, January 4th. Hope to see LOTS of all of you!

I created a single page layout using Reflections How-To Program. I random stamped with the Treasures SOTM in chocolate, crystal blue & sweet leaf inks. I then used the Sorbet Exclusive Marker with my NEW airbrushing system (YEAH, going to have LOTS of fun with this) to distress the colonial white cardstock background.

My base page is a 12"x12" chocolate cardstock, along with crystal blue cardstock, a sweet leaf accent piece (base page, sweet leaf accent piece & crystal blue pieces are sanding distressed) and a strip of the NEW Twitterpated polka dot B&T paper!!

Products Used: Reflections How-To Program
Papers: Twitterpated Level 2 Paper Pack, Chocolate CS, Crystal Blue CS, Sweet Leaf CS
Inks: Chocolate, Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf, Sorbet
Accessories: Z1127 Chocolate Collection Ribbon Rounds, Z1218 Brads Basic Collection, Z1206 Craft Buttons Basic Collection.

And for my second creation, I used the new Grace Level 2 Paper Packet, Chocolate Collection Ribbon Rounds and Basic Brads Collection. Inks: Barn Red, Cocoa and Honey.

Now "Hop" on over to Paige Dolecki's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!

Remember, Treasures SOTM is only available until September 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free !

Copic Certified Design Artist

This past weekend, I traveled to Eau Claire, WI to attend some training and certification classes on Copic markers! What a blast I had! First off, the classes were held at "Picture This" scrapbooking store!!! All I can say is "WOW"! This place is HUGE, has terrific selection, the classroom is phenomenal, and the staff is fantabulous (is that a word?, LOL)!!

To top it off, I was able to stay at a scrapbooking retreat, Green Haven Retreat! Not only was this retreat absolutely perfect, but it was right in the same parking lot area from Picture This!!! How perfect is that? Not far to go for classes, shopping pretty much at your finger tips...."WOW"!!

Probably the best part of all? All the instruction offered by Sally Lynn MacDonald! We made some GREAT projects, learned basics of using Copic markers, airbrushing......Sally Lynn is a WONDERFUL, down to earth woman with great talent. I LOVED sharing stories of our kids and our experiences with life in general. What a warm, sweet woman she is!

Actually, the VERY BEST part of all is that I walked away as a Copic Certified Design Artist!! That's right, I can now teach classes with the Copic markers and products! So, I will be taking a few weeks to practice up, get some classes together, and also put together a Copic Club (details to follow)! The artwork that can be attained with these gems is unbelievable. The key is knowing HOW to use them, what can go wrong, etc.

I will be sharing some blogs soon that got me hooked on the look of using Copics, so be sure to visit me regularly!

Technique of the WEEK-Masking

This week's technique is masking! Learn how to mask and image to only use part of it for stamping. This week, you will have a chance to use not yet released products from the Autumn/Winter 2009 Close To My Heart Idea Book!

Aren't the stamp set and papers adorable? Okay, my photography stinks, but trust me, they are adorable!

This technique will be taught this week, August 17th through August 21st. It is taught Tuesday evenings, 6 pm - 8 pm or any other time during the week that I do not have other classes scheduled.

Don't forget to join me on Facebook! You can join "My Creative Clubhouse" group where I will post the schedule and other events!

Hope to see you here this week for this great tecnique!

Technique Tuesday Becomes Technique of the WEEK!

Yes, you read that right! Technique Tuesday is NOW Technique of the WEEK! Due to some changes at My Creative Clubhouse, the technique will be offered Monday through Friday! I will have one table set up to accommodate the technique of the week.

Basically, due to the fact that I still need to help out at our family business, Auto Pro, the Tuesday hours of My Creative Clubhouse have changed to 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm. The technique class will be held Tuesday evenings 6 pm - 8 pm, BUT you may also come in throughout the week WHEN THERE ARE NOT OTHER CLASSES being held to receive instruction for the technique of the week! You will still need to Pre-Register & Pre-Pay just like always.
So, are you ready to see what the technique is for the week of Monday, August 10th through Friday, August 14th? The technique is "GHOSTING", and here is the project we will make:

I hope you are looking forward to learning this technique as much as I am to teach it! I really had fun making this card and know you will too, so hurry and reserve your spot! Hope to see you there!

2009 Autumn/Winter Idea Book Coming Soon!

UPS Warning About the NEW CTMH Fall/Winter Idea Book!!!

I just had to share this... LOL

This time of the year has come around once again. Close To My Heart is releasing the New Idea Book and Catalog. Please be extremely cautious of Close To My Heart Consultants (CTMHCs) for the next two weeks.

How to Deliver the New Idea Book and Catalog:

1. Be sure you have fixed your squeaky brakes - if not, park your truck two blocks away so the CTMHC can not hear you coming.

2. Put in your earplugs and secure your safety glasses.

3. If you see children looking out the window, put your finger up to your lips and say "SHHHH".. They are on a "lookout" for you and are being paid to "alert" their mothers (CTMHCs) when they see you coming to the door.

4. Approach the front door and very quietly, set the package down in front of the door (Make sure you place it in FRONT so when she opens the door, the box will be in the way and give you a little more time to escape).

5. Back up as far as you can and reach for the doorbell, (BE READY TO RUN !!!). Ring the doorbell and make a mad dash back to your truck and drive away....DO NOT LOOK BACK !!!

The UPS corporation is informing you of this because in the past years, CTMHCs have been known to scream at the top of their lungs with excitement and try to tackle you with hugs for delivering their catalogs. After you have been smothered with appreciation for getting them their catalogs on time, watch out for flying packaging material as they will open up the box before you have had a chance to leave, or they have gone inside.

They have also been known to drive up next to you at a stop light in their mini vans and SUVs and ask if you have a package for them. Turn up your radio and pretend you cannot hear them. Do not let them approach your delivery truck at an intersection. CTMHCs have been know to stop traffic and throw all your packages off the trucks until they find their new Idea Book and catalog.

Best of luck to you with this mission, and remember: Let's Be Safe Out There!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed this little story, I know I did! And being one of those CTMHCs I have to agree with the excitement that is explained above!

So, keep your eyes open for my Idea Book Revealing Party coming soon!

ALL DAY CROP!

You have been asking for it, and it is FINALLY here! An all day crop at My Creative Clubhouse!

WHEN: Saturday, July 25th
TIME: 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM
COST: $50.00 per person

Lunch will be included! Hurry, spaces are filling up, be sure to reserve YOUR spot today!

Clarification........

It has come to my attention that there is a misconception out there of what exactly My Creative Clubhouse is, so please let me clarify!



My Creative Clubhouse is a CREATIVE STUDIO, not a STORE! I teach classes & techniques, hold workshops, all day crops, etc. If anyone has any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me regarding this issue. My cell phone number is 414-640-0412. I'd be happy to discuss this with anyone.



For those of you who are fellow Close To My Heart consultants, I AM NOT looking to steal your customers! I am doing nothing different than any of you do by teaching classes, workshops, etc only I PAY RENT to do so because I do not have the space or the family support to do this out of my home.



I have been in contact with corporate. I am NOT in violation of any corporate policies. If you would like to better understand what I am offering, and are local, please stop by! I am at My Creative Clubhouse Mon, Wed, Fri 10 am - 6 pm, Tues 5:30 pm - 9 pm, Thurs 10 am - 9 pm and Sat 8 am - 3 pm. I would be HAPPY to show you around, and even share my space with you for YOUR unit meetings, open houses, etc.



I hope this clarifies things for anyone who is wondering!
