Scrapbooking, Cardmaking, and Paper Crafting in Aumsville, Oregon

Are you a paper crafter seeking a place to meet others who love to create with paper, rubber stamps, inks, embellishments, stickers, embossing and so many more products? Then you need to be joining in on all the fun we have at my workshops and clubs as a Close To My Heart (CTMH), Independent Consultant. A typical month consists of a card workshop (six cards) within the first week of the month, a two-page scrapbook layout the second week of the month and a club night either the third or fourth week of the month.

What is the difference between a workshop and club night? The answer is very simply that the six cards and two-page layout workshops are creations I have come up with using CTMH products and various techniques. I then prepare and cut all the materials necessary to make the items. On the night of the workshop, all you have to do is stamp, distress, glue down and embellish the materials supplied at a cost of $10. The workshops are typically 6:00-9:00 pm on Thursday evenings.

As for a club night, the projects are selected by the club members (you and others) from the Close To My Heart Workshops On The Go (WOTG) kits within the Annual Inspirations Idea Book. The kits consist of all the materials necessary to create either 15 cards (5 each of 3 designs) or 2 two-page scrapbook layouts. Supplies included in the kits range from cardstock, background and texture paper, stamp sets, embellishments and the instructions on how to complete the project. I supply the work space, Cricut machine for any required Cricut cuts, Exclusive Inks pads, adhesives, and assistance for completing the WOTG projects. The kits range from $24.95 to $29.95 plus $4.95 shipping. Once the projects are made, all remaining supplies are yours to keep. There is no additional cost for coming to club night. See the right hand sidebar for more information about clubs. The club nights are typically 6:00-9:00 pm on Thursday evenings.

The upcoming November workshops will be focusing on Thanksgiving. Here are the six cards for the card workshop on November 6. Registration is closed, but contact me anyway for a possible opening.
