Workshop Your Way kits–by CTMH

close to my heart - picmonkeyHave you ever tried Close To My Heart’s (CTMH) Workshop Your Way kits? 
If you haven’t – I encourage you to read along on today’s post to see what they are all about! J

These kits are FABULOUS, as they create both scrapbook pages & card designs…so you get a mixture of both kinds of paper crafting!!
So…what are the Workshops Your Way kits???
With Workshops Your Way™, you create…
* three beautiful scrapbooking layouts with no stamping
* a fourth layout featuring Picture My Life™ cards
*and the option to create an additional cardmaking project featuring stamping and other techniques—all with one workshop kit!
(You'll also need a few basic tools you may already have.)

So…let’s take a look at the MAGICAL kit – this is the kit we used at this month’s Hostess Club Scrapbooking Class….
Close To My Heart’s “Magical”
Workshops Your Way (WYW)
Magical WYW

What a BEAUTIFUL fun kit!!  While this kit can be seen as  “Disney” themed kit, I encourage you to think “outside the box”!  This could be used for birthday, Graduation, Summer fun – all come to mind, of ways this paper collection can be used! J   

Here is a list of ALL the items that are included in this Workshops Your Way (WYW) kit...

Workshops Your Way™ Magical  Kit Contents:
1 – Magical Paper Packet (X7209B)      
1 – Magical Complements (X7209C)     
4– Cardstock Sheets (3 White Daisy & 1 Sapphire)
        1 – White Twine (Z3216)
1 – Magical Sequins (Z3214)

Featured Colors: Black, Cranberry, Crystal Blue, Honey, Sapphire, Whisper & White Daisy
CTMH has a FREE  online cutting guide available for you to print out or save, & create the exact creations as the CTMH has created OR use the paper pack however you’d like. J The new WYW kit layouts are BEAUTIFUL, and pretty simple too!  Believe it or not – there is NO STAMPING on the 4 layouts in the guide!!

(You can view these complete recipes, full-color photos, and helpful hints for the additional projects through the entire cycle of the idea book they’re featured in.)

Let’s take a look at each of the layouts you will create with this kit…
Magical WYW layout 1

Magical WYW layout 2
Magical WYW layout 3
Magical WYW layout PML
Each WYW kit ALSO creates 8-10 cards (Additional purchase of A Fairytale Birthday stamp set required) J OR – maybe you’d like to use the “extra” paper to create more layouts instead…it’s up to you!!
Magical WYW cards
As part of my Hostess Club, I often will “re-vamp” the layouts & cards to suit what I know YOU love!  It’s been fun to have this starting base, cutting the papers as CTMH has designed, but then adding a stamp set, or maybe another few sheets of cardstock to give it a “Krista touch” for these workshops. Smile

I liked how CTMH designed these workshops, but I wanted to use a few more of the Complements (that are included in the kit) PLUS I ADORE the “Carnvial Fun” stamp set (retiring Aug 31,2016#)– and wanted to incorporate that into my creations too….Check it out!

PLUS…I then “scrap lifted” (yes, copied – LOL!) my good friend, Gina Brandstetter, on the card designs she created.  I LOVED her cards when I saw them…they were so similar to the cards I wanted to create using this stamp set!!  Smile 

  These card designs are the SAME design & paper pieces that you cut from the Magical WYW kit for the orginal cards (shown above)…but they use the Carnival Fun stamp set instead of the Fairytale Birthday stamp.

I added some liquid glass….can you see the dimension this adds to my stamped images?

Do you love to Papercraft??? Check out my NEW VIP page!!

I am excited to share with you that I have set up a VIP Close To My Heart group that is ALL related to Papercrafting! :) 

This group is for ANYONE who enjoys papercrafting, cardmaking, scrapbooking & who would love to learn what classes, events and projects & specials I am personally hosting. And of course - we'll also know what is the latest & greatest that's happening at CTMH too! :) 
(As much as I would love to have other CTMH Consultants as part of the group, my VIP group is specifically for my customers and their friends. Thank you for understanding.)

I also came to realize that many of you, although you have liked my CTMH business facebook page, are missing out on the events & specials that I post on my daily feed.
By being a VIP member of my Krista’s Crafty group, you won’t miss those special announcements, artwork, tips & techniques, videos and of course - giveaways too! I will still be posting on my CTMH Business Page, but I plan to have a bit more FUN & interaction with you on this VIP page. 

I’m excited to have this group that is geared towards my wonderful customers…although I can't call you customers; I am so BLESSED to have you all as friends :)....all because of our enjoyment of papercrafting! :) Please feel free to invite any of your friends that you know would enjoy this page too!

I look forward to having you join me at “Krista’s Crafty VIPClose To My Heart Group”! Hop on over to the link above to join me today! :)

Blessings to you for a WONDERFUL day!!!
