Scrapbooking and Cards Fun Day

Next Saturday, March 27th from 1:00 - 4:00ish, come and scrapbook or make cards with me.

Cards - $1.25 per card, all materials supplied and many examples to choose from or let your creative juices flow and use your own ideas. Make cards to your hearts content, as many or few as you want to.

Scrapbooking - If you don't have your own supplies, I do. Bring your photos and make 12" x 12" - 2-page layouts from $5.50 - $6.00 per layout, using cardstock, patterned paper, stamps, embellishments, etc. from my cupboard. If you have your own supplies, bring them along and scrapbook with me. Make as many layouts as you like. I have a lot of examples to assist with designing pages and am here to help you be creative. Close To My Heart's motto is, "Let me show you how".

Remember: Scrapbooking and making cards is relaxing and fun. It allows your creative mind to operate and relaxes the analytical side of the brain.

Please let me know if you will be attending and what your interests are by email or phone at 250-763-6780. Looking forward to scrapbooking together next Saturday.

Okotoks Scrapbooking Convention

I had a wonderful time at the Scrapbooking Convention in Okotoks, which was a fundraiser for the Rowan House Women's Shelter. We were able to take classes of choice and I chose the photography class and the CTMH Studio J, which will be available to everyone soon. It is an online scrapbooking with a single price for a layout (2 pages) and all the embellishments you desire. Studio J is user friendly and the best program I have seen. Your pages will be delivered to you with page protectors ready to add to your album. Of coarse you can add 3-D embellishments when you receive your pages. There were almost 150 ladies scrapbooking and making cards. Lots of free prizes were given away and we played some games and entered contests. I won a huge basket full of scrapbooking supplies by winning the reverse bingo game. Good thing I had an empty suitcase to bring it all home in! What a lot of fun and good fellowship. I am planning to go again next year.
