Operation Smile Bolivia - And How YOU Can Help!

I am leaving in about 36 hours to go to Bolivia on an Operation Smile mission.  
I still have to pinch myself sometimes to know that this is actually happening!


This mission is being sponsored by Close To My Heart's amazing generosity.  Three other Consultants and the President of CTMH, Monica Wihongi, will be going, too, and I am excited to spend this time with them!

Recently, my team and I held a crop to raise money for Operation Smile, and through generous donations, we were able to donate 60 smiles!!  This is amazing - 60 lives will be changed forever!

I still want to do even more! 

Everyone that places an order will automatically receive a hand-stamped gratitude card in the mail from me when I return from Bolivia.

Thank you in advance for opening your hearts.  It is life-changing!

Holiday Sparkle Christmas Card Workshop

I am so excited to announce a Christmas Card Workshop for October!

Holiday Sparkle creates 12 sparkly shaker cards (5" x 7"), and the kit is the special for October.  I created a little more sparkle by adding white and silver snowflakes.  The snowflakes are not included in the kit, but I am including them as an extra sparkly embellishment when you purchase your card kit from me or come to my class!!

Saturday, October 20th at 10:00 am 
Brenda's Home

You can sign up by e-mailing me, and then pay me at the class.
There are two options for you to choose from!

Want to hear the details?



OPTION #1:  These cards are so easy and so beautiful, and I can't wait for you to make them!  The card bases are pre-printed for your ease, sequins, shaker windows, instructions are included.  They even includes envelope stickers!   The card kit alone with the glittery snowflakes is $35.  



OPTION #2:  The optional stamp set has perfect sentiments for the inside of your cards.  I love this set, and I know it will be a keeper to use in years to come.  If you choose to order the stamp set with the card kit, there is a 20% discount!  The cost is $45.


You are going to LOVE these cards!!  I will show you how to create the shaker window, add sequins, as well as share some ideas for stamping on the inside. 

You can also purchase your kit long distance.  You will order the kit on my website, and then I will send you the snowflakes as well as a link to a video that will help you see how to put the kits together!


You won't want to wait till the last minute because this one could sell out quickly!!

Hello Pumpkin Halloween Workshop - In-Home Class or Kit

Hello Pumpkin is such adorable paper, and I so love these pages!  I like it because it's not scary paper, but rather it's cute.  Our son was never one for the scary side of Halloween, so I will be taking out some of his little boy photos to put on this set of scrapbook layouts.

You can come to my house:
Saturday, October 6th
10:00 am - Noon
(RSVP by October 1st)

or you can order a long distance kit.

Either way, everything will be pre-cut for you and ready to easily put together.  Here are the layouts:



This workshop is $45 ($5 extra for long distance), and look at all it includes!
  • Hello Pumpkin Paper Packet (pre-cut and sorted)
  • Hello Pumpkin Coordinating Cardstock (3 pre-cut and sorted sheets of Lagoon, Nectarine, Willow, and Black Glitter paper)
  • Hello Pumpkin Complements
  • Hello Pumpkin Shapes
  • Hello Pumpkin Washi Tape
  • Cricut Die-Cuts

Memories in the Making Cut Above Layout Kit

It's National Stamping Month, and this year’s special features the Memories in the Making Cut Above layout kit. With this kit, you can create 13 single pages, or add a few additional products to turn this layout kit into a calendar! This special includes two exclusive stamp sets: Memories in the Making — Days, and Memories in the Making — Months. Use these stamp sets to add months, date numbers, and other details to your calendar.

Let me show you the details, and then I will share photos of the pages!

You can buy the Cut Above Layout Kit on it's own.  You would have everything you need to create 13 lovely single pages.  All you would need to bring is adhesive!  The cost for this kit is $29.95.


These one page layouts are perfect for a calendar.    That's why we have paired them with a calendar for just $1.00 more!  The Cut Above Layout Kit with the calendar is $30.95, and it's perfect for someone that has the alphabet to make titles and numbers.  


The next option is my very favorite and truly the best value.  It is the Cut Above Layout Kit with the Calendar, Months Stamps, and Daily Stamps with icons.  This set retails at $87.80, and we are selling it during National Stamping Month at just $60.95!  That's a savings of 30%!!


 Now let me show you the lovely pages this kit makes.  I also want to tell you that it took me about 90 minutes to put the whole kit together.  Yes - 13 pages in less time than it takes to watch a movie!!


If you'd like to see the pages up close, just click on the photo to make them larger.  Didn't I tell you that they were wonderful pages?  Watercolor splashes, words, splatters - and it's all built into these pages and pre-printed.
