Just WHAT is this thing you call "Open Clubhouse Time"?

So, you follow my blog, or you have visited me at "My Creative Clubhouse", attended my workshops, scrapbooking or cardmaking classes...but yet, you just don't "get" what this thing you are seeing on the monthly calendar or hear about is...Let me explain!

"Open Clubhouse Time" is an opportunity for you to visit My Creative Clubhouse, reserve a 6 foot table for yourself to work on your own creations using all of MY TOOLS!  That's right, you can use any non-consumable items here at My Creative Clubhouse to step up your creative processes, all for just $5.00 per hour per person!  Looking for some quality time to spend with your daughter, granddaughter or just your girlfriends?  Come visit and have some creative time as well!

Let me explain further...I want to share all of the tools, machines, stamps, etc that I have invested in WITH YOU!  Many of you have been to crops where other attendees will bring their Cricut cutting machine, and their cartridges to share with everyone, or maybe it has been a stamp set, a Cuttlebug, or how about stamp pads, markers....well, you can find ALL of that here!
Punches, Dies & Embossing Folders

Cricut Expression Machine equipped with Cricut Design Studio & Vickie, my downline & helper :)

I not only have one Cricut Expression die cutting machine for your use, but TWO!  You do not have to worry about whether or not you will have access to the Cricut because it is in use, I am blessed with two machines!

Cricut Shape Cartridges

And what good is a Cricut Expression without cartridges?  I have well OVER 100 cartridges for you to choose from! 
Cricut Fonts, Classmates & Licensed Cartridges
Clear My Acrylix Stamp Sets

More clear stamp sets, and wooden too!

3 FULL Ink Towers!!
 I have THREE full ink towers filled with all 60 Exclusive Close To My Heart stamp pads and markers!
Table Kits
There are also these table kits for your use.  In addition, there are other tools on hand, just can't post them ALL...I would lose your attention if I did, not to mention, it's all a bit overwhelming!

What you need to bring while visiting on "Open Clubhouse Time" will need to provide your own adhesives, although I do have some refills on hand for purchase, however the type is very limited.  You will want to bring your pictures if you are scrapbooking, your preferred trimmer (extras on hand also), papers, stickers and whatever other "consumables" you may use in your creations. 

I do have some Close To My Heart products on hand, in limited quantities, that you may purchase while here.  I hope this helps to clear up what exactly "Open Clubhouse Time" is, and I hope to see many of you soon.  At any given time, I am also available to assist you in learning how to use these many tools, give creative input if you wish, so long as there is not a class, workshop, etc in session.  You may visit for "Open Clubhouse Time" anytime during my scheduled hours.  The hours I am currently at My Creative Clubhouse are: M, W, F 10 am - 6 pm, Tu & Th 10 am - 9 pm, Sat 10 am - 3 pm (winter hours) or Sat 8 am - 3 pm (during the Downtown West Bend Farmer's Market).  Please call ahead for "Open Clubhouse Time" if you see there are Crops or Birthday Parties scheduled as space will be limited for "Open Clubhouse Time"!

Please note: on the clubhouse calendar there are special events held as well...there are some days that my hours may change from the above schedule.  If you should have any questions at all, I may be contacted by phone (262) 338-CLUB (2582), email: or .  You may also visit my Close To My Heart website to shop online 24/7.

I hope I have helped to clear up exactly what "Open Clubhouse Time" really is, and hope to see many of you soon!  As the wall art states right inside my front door, "So many toys, so little time"! :)

Happy Spring,
Tammy Lea Pinchard
