Today marks the start of CTMH’s Annual Convention–well, actually, today is Leadership Day and Day 1 of Convention begins tomorrow. But even if you’re not attending Leadership (which I am & am so excited to be doing so!), you’re traveling to get to Convention and the excitement is surely building. Many CTMH Consultantswill tell you that this occasion is definitely a holiday in their books. An event NOT to be missed.
And this year is even more exciting because Convention is back in Salt Lake City (it hasn’t been there for 10 years!) so they will be offering a Home Office tour to all attendees. A behind the scenes tour. How exciting!
There are many standard activities that occur while at Convention aside from the regularly scheduled activities. Card swapping, Team Meetings/Celebrations, Roomie Gifts, etc.
I’m excited to have several of my team members joining me at Convention this year–the most so far! These are just part of the gifts that I will be giving to each of them. I wanted to share these today because they were easy to put together, but look super cute!
I started with some fun foil star bags I found in Target’s Dollar Spot (that place gets so much of my money; there is always something cute in that section!) The stars seemed perfect to go with CTMH’s Little Dreamer Collection so I used CTMH’s Retired Cricut Art Philosophy Collection to cut some tags and then stamped and cut out images with the Little Dreamer Cardmaking Stamp Set + Thin Cuts die set.
To close it up, I used scraps of the Little Dreamer Paper glued to some basic clothespins with Liquid Glass. Then I added some stars I cut with the *NEW* Stars Basic Shapes Thin Cuts dies using Silver Glitter Paper. Crazy easy to do and completes the look nicely. And even better is it doesn’t take any hard to find items to make. Just some cute bags (you could even make some out of paper you have at home if you liked!) and clothespins (Don’t have any? Check your local Dollar Store.)
Close To My Heart’s exclusive Cricut Flower Market Collectionhas an amazing assortment of images. Today, we’re going to explore one of the keys in this collection that is perfect for creating tropical vacation scrapbook layouts or even fun mini albums to document those vacations.
Father’s Day is right around the corner. Honestly, I can’t believe today is June 1st! How did that happen?!?
So if you are looking for a quick and easy (and great looking!) card to use for Father’s Day, look no further than Close To My Heart’s Father’s Day Cardmaking Kit!
Now don’t let the name of this kit fool you. It has much more to offer than just making Father’s Day cards. I mean how many of those do you really need, right? The kit comes with 2 different card designs that you can make 2 different ways–meaning you have a total of 4 options if you wanted! You receive enough supplies to create 12 cards which is pretty awesome.
These first 2 pictures are of the 2 layout designs for this kit. The first picture is what I created. You’ll notice that I tweaked it a bit from the original designed one.
I kept a white border around the entire card. This allowed me to raise up the layers with some 3-D Foam Tapeand wrap the twine around without creating a bulky bulge to my card. I also decided that a bow didn’t seem as manly to me so I did a couple of knots instead. The final difference was that I used less of the Black Dots. I really like how it turned out. But I also really like the original, too!
So if you’d like a fun card kit that has wonderful interchangeable designs perfect for Father’s Day and beyond, grab yourself a Father’s Day Cardmaking Kiton MY ONLINE CTMH STORE. There’s still time to make a homemade Father’s Day card!
