WELCOME to my blog! This is the place to see what class offerings I have. I am also a consultant for Close to my Heart, a company that offers stamping and scrapbooking supplies. Take a look at the products and specials they are currently offering.

I hope you find something of interest to you.


CTMH Consultant Guide available

It's time to be thinking about Christmas cards, and the CTMH Silver & Gold Picture My Life cards make the perfect start to 22 beautiful cards.
Complete cutting instructions and instructions for assembling the cards are included.

If you aren't a Close to My Heart consultant but would like to create these cards, I will soon be posting the information for purchasing a pre-stamped kit that will allow you to put these cards together at home.

These are the cards that you will make with this kit!

 These 22 cards are created using the silver and gold foil PML cards from the packet.  You need 5 different colors of cardstock, but it comes out to only about 2-1/2 sheets of paper, plus one sheet of white.  Each customer will also need a pack of bitty sparkles and red enamel gems, plus about half a pack of cards/envelopes.

There is one Cricut cut used for the wreath from the Flower Market cartridge.  But if you don't have Cricut or that cartridge, I have created an alternate option for the "noel" card using a stamped image.

You can get all of the information to create this workshop with your customers for only $10.  
Use the Buy it Now button below to get all of the instructions, and a Consultant Release allowing you to use this project with your customers.

After you complete your order, please email me at 
with your CTMH website address - your OBA!
I will then send you the e-files for this project and you can start preparing for the upcoming Christmas season. 
If you have any troubles with the Buy Now button, please email me
and I will send you an invoice.

I am so excited to offer this 16-card workshop.  
The Oh, Deer! papers from Close to My Heart are so lovely and the gold & silver foiled complements complete the cards so beautifully.
Everything is cut and packaged so it is easy for you to assemble the cards. 
Photo instructions for the assembly will be emailed to you.

Close to My Heart consultants:
See below to find out how you can get the cutting guide and assembly instructions for this workshop to use with your customers.

Take a look at all of the cards!

The cost for the workshop to create all 16 of these cards is
$37 plus $6 for Priority Mail shipping.
Most everything you need to assemble these cards is included in the kit.  You will receive:
  • 16 card bases/envelopes
  • all the Oh, Deer! papers and cardstock cut for creating 16 beautiful cards
  • all the sentiments stamped on cardstock using CTMH's Very Merry stamp set, and extra pieces of cardstock for each card should you want to use a sentiment of your own
  • the Oh, Deer! complements - coordinating stickers and kraft die-cuts - including some with gold or silver accents
  • 100 adhesive-backed 2 mm Bitty Sparkles 
  • 10 yards of White & Gold Twine
  • 6-page PDF photo instruction document for assembling the cards (plus an optional longer version with larger print), added hints and supply list.  This document will be emailed to you.

There are a few extra items you will need.  You may already have them in your craft stash, or you can add them on to your kit order and they will ship in the same package.  Tax and shipping have already been added to the fee listed when you order.
  • Silver and Gold metallic pens - fine to medium point 
  • Shimmer Brush - a brush pen filled with liquid clear sparkles to add shimmer to your projects

Most of us have our favorite adhesives and fasteners, but if you don't, these items can also be ordered.  They will be shipped separately from Close to My Heart.  A $4.95 shipping fee plus tax will be added if you wish to order these items.  Email me at greetingsfromgail@gmail.com and include your shipping address if you would like any of these items.  I will then invoice you for the total of your purchase plus shipping and tax:

  • Dual Action Glue Pen - can be used for both permanent and temporary bonds
  • Thin 3-D Foam Tape - only 1 mm thick!
  • Permanent Adhesive roller applicator (refills available)

CTMH Consultants:
If you are interested in this kit for your customers, you can either:
  • Purchase the electronic files that include the 10-page PDF cutting guide, 6-page PDF photo instructions for assembling the cards (plus an optional longer version with larger print), consultant release form, and added hints and supply list for only $12
  • Purchase a pre-cut and pre-stamped kit to assemble all 16 cards so you have samples to show your customers for $37 plus $6 for Priority Mail shipping.  The files listed above will be sent to you via email so you can replicate the workshop when you want.  You will need the metallic markers and shimmer brush to complete the cards.
With either option, please email me at greetingsfromgail@gmail.com or leave a message with your PayPal order and include your OBA address.

Are you ready to order your kit?  All prices listed include shipping fees where appropriate.  Please be sure PayPal has your correct shipping address and email address so the kit and electronic instructions arrive safely!

Please email me at greetingsfromgail@gmail.com if you would like to order more than one kit so I can calculate shipping costs for you.  Also, email me if you have any questions. 

I will not be available to ship the complete card kit until Monday, November 28.  I can, however, send the e-files for the consultant instruction kit if that is what you desire.  Thanks for understanding - off to visit my son!
