What You Need To Know... June 29, 2015

Hi Paper Crafters,

Tomorrow will be the end of June, the first month of summer break went WAY too fast. Now we are in a heat wave which makes it seem like we are in the month of August. Of course, I am not wishing for the last month to be here already, it is just rare to already be at such high temps for such an extended period of time. I have been enjoying being in the house with the air conditioning and my craft room.

What's up in July with Close To My Heart?
July Stamp of the Month - Life Is Wonderful

An Evening of Synergy... June 18, 2015

Sally Sells Seashells by the Seashore... That is what I am going to have to do in order to afford yet another stamp set. Yes, one more that I did not even have on my original Annual Inspirations "wish list". Now I need to purchase the Seaside Greetings stamp set D1609. Look at how Cassie made her background for the third layout in the Seaside WOTG Scrapbooking kit G1089.

Seaside Greetings
Cassie's Background Paper (Cocoa Exclusive Inks)



Cassie's Version of the third layout made from Seaside WOTG scraps

What You Need To Know... June 18, 2015

Awaiting a new arrival... just before I began typing this week's "What You Need To Know," my sister-in-law texted that my niece is in labor. Yay!
 
Are you keeping up on what I have been working on? Be sure to follow my Facebook Group and blog (all noted below) for all the latest paper craft projects created by myself and the evening of synergy where I feature how paper crafters have taken my samples and made them their own.
 
Not coming to workshops?! Join us on June 25th 6:30-8:30 for an evening of visiting and browsing the Close To My Heart idea book. You will also get to create a card for FREE. This will be a great time to get to know other paper crafters and hear what they love about this craft and why they enjoy coming to workshops. Doris Berry will be the hostess for the evening, all sales go towards hostess rewards for Doris.
