Where Did July Go?

It has been brought to my attention that my summer is almost over.  I am sad to say the least!  It cannot be time to go back to school because I have new toys that have not been played with yet and others that are going to require more crafting time because I love them so much.  

I have been working to finish up a few business projects so that I can move on to some "play" projects.  I always participate in a display swap with some of my other Close To My Heart gals so that we have class card and layout samples for each paper pack.  Those of you close to me know about my obsession with denim so of course I had to choose Dakota.  These are the things I came up with to share.

(The layout was modeled after one we created at convention, the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card is a pattern from the Idea Book, the 3x3 just seemed perfect for the pocket and the 3D item is a gift card holder cut from the Artiste cartridge.)

August Fun

There are so many awesome things going on in August, especially if you have ever considered starting your own CTMH business.  Join my team this month (Aug. 1 - 31 or while supplies last) and you can get this fabulous bag free with either your Essentials Kit for $49 ($130 value) or the Masters Kit for $99 ($280 value).  You set your hours, you create your classes and hold your Gatherings OR you can just be a hobbiest and purchase your goodies at a discount.  FLEXIBILITY is yours!
 The Essentials Kit $49.00

The Masters Kit includes everything from the Essentials plus     
                      additional business supplies $99.00

Hostess Club Gatherings

We just finished up our round of Hostess Club so September starts a brand new group.  If you would like to join in on the fun, NOW is the perfect time!  What?  You don't have time to come have fun, laugh a little and break bread with friends?  No problem!  I would like to try out a new, fun way of joining in on the fun.  You can be a part of hostess club WITHOUT attending.  You can submit your orders via email or phone the night of the gathering, all projects created that night will be in your bag of goodies to be picked up and since you will not actually be here to serve your favorite dish, you will receive 1/2 of your Hostess Rewards during your month and I will provide the meal.  Does that sound like something that would fit nicely into your schedule?  Your $25 commitment will ensure your spot in our Hostess Club and you will be able to purchase all of those goodies you are eyeing in the fabulous new Idea Book plus guarantee you some of your wish list items for FREE!  Contact me today for more information or to reserve your spot.

Are you ready for some fun and need to complete layouts, cards or just want to learn something new?  Grab your calendar and pencil in some upcoming workshops:

I have been working on a worksheet for a beginner Cricut Class and am looking at Saturday, August 11th; I  previously mentioned August 4th but will not have everything together in time and my back is not cooperating much at the moment.  The class will be $10 to cover supplies, snacks and door prizes!  RSVP  by 8/5/12, so that I save you a plug!  You are welcome to attend even if you do not have a machine because I will gladly share with you.  This will be BASIC Cricuting 101 and I am planning on a follow up with a project workshop.  More details to follow!
