Leadership Announcements

Wow, it seems like just yesterday we were leaving for Long Beach and now the amazing weekend is over! While Leadership may be over, it is just the beginning for the endless new releases from Close To My Heart! Our event began with a beautiful Create and Take demonstrating one of the new paper packs: Twitterpated. The paper is beautiful and the project is from our new Workshops on the Go Program- now featuring CARDS! That's right, each Workshop on the Go guide now has instructions for an exclusive two page layout and three cards using the featured paper pack and an exclusive stamp set! Stay tuned to find out more about this program including dates that we will be holding the workshops! For now here is a sneak peak of what the art work looks like - BEAUTIFUL!

Level Three Layout: look at the cute little stamped mushrooms...... this layout features techniques using sewn ribbon and liquid glass!

Cards: We know our card patterns are versatile, and the card workshop proves it by taking the new exclusive pattern and featuring it three ways. Isn't the little hedgehog just adorable?!

Additional Art Work!

Fridays General Session was overwhelming with all the new idea book releases including soft set eyelets (silent!!!), the new Snapease album system for making it a 'snap' to add or remove pages from your albums, new glitter brads and glitter rub-ons..... and the most exciting new release yet; STUDIO J.
