September Club Project - Christmas Card Tin

Below is the project we will be making with my Creative Club in September. We will be using the beautiful new Around the Holidays Card Kit (to released on September 1st.) Everyone will get four cards, four envelope flats, a full sheet of matching Stickease, some Chocolate Polka Dot Organdy Ribbon, some Mini Foam Squares, along with a fun round tin to hold the cards. We will spruce up the cards with Prisma Glitter, Liquid Appliqué, Fun Flock, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, and more. Or if you choose, you can just use the Stickease to decorate your cards. You will also have the opportunity to decorate your envelopes. (I LOVE this card kit and think you will too!)
We will use one of the cards to decorate the top of the tin. I used a little Prisma Glitter on the tree to add a little sparkle to my sample below. (It is hard to see in the photos.)On the card below I used CTMH's Jingle Borders stamp set with some Clear Detail Embossing Powder to spruce up the large ornament Stickease and some Fun Flock on the dove.
The card below has a dab of Liquid Appliqué added to the snow to make it 3-D!My Creative Club meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7pm at my house, however, you do not need to be local to be part of the club. My long distance members get their kits mailed to them and any orders they place, get drop shipped to them directly from the Close to my Heart office. (Sometimes they even get their orders before the local gals!) Next month's club is on Wednesday, September 9th. If you would like to attend or order a kit, please contact me no later than September 1st so that I have enough time to order the supplies.

Here is more information on the Creative Club:
You may join the club at any time and there is no commitment to stay in the club for any length of time or to place an order. There will be a $5 fee for the supplies used for the projects we make which will range from cards to small gift items, to scrapbook pages, and more. Each person who signs up for this club will have their name added to the bottom of the hostess list. The person whose name is on the top of the list will get the hostess rewards that month. In order for your name to keep its “place” on the list, you must place a $25 minimum order whether you attend the class that month or not. If you do not place a $25+ order that month, then your name goes down to the bottom of the list. If you do place a $25+ order, then your name continues to move up the list AND you will not be required to pay the $5 supply fee for that class. It will be free! Long distance members pay an additional $5 to have their project kits mailed to them.

Club members will also receive:
  • A free current Idea Book/Catalog
  • Free Hostess Rewards during your hosting month
  • $5 or free optional monthly classes
  • Optional opportunity to hold a home workshop or party to boost your hostess benefits
  • $5 discounts on all workshops while you are a member
  • Lots of other freebies and surprises...
Contact me at for more information, to sign up for next month’s class, or to order your own club kit(s).
