Something special for you ...and you ... And you...

Hello stamping and scrapping friends!

I've got a couple of things to tell you about -- a special end-of-the-month offer AND the announcement of the next ScrapHappy meeting at the Belle Cooledge Library.

Well, it is almost the end of April and I'm going to throw in a little special of my own to finish up the month. My iPad camera isn't working right, so you'll have to pull out your CTMH catalog, or click on the shopping icon here on my blog.

Here's your chance to try out a new CTMH product FREE.  If you purchase the stamp set For a Friend (D1542, page 99) between now and 8 pm on Tuesday, April 30, I will throw in the Muslin Drawstring Gift Bags (Z1822, pictured just above the stamp set) FREE.

There's even an online video showing you how to make a cute project with this stamp set and the bags.

Send me an email with your order and I'll take care of the rest.


Come to the Belle Cooledge Library on Friday, May 10 to make swing cards from the exclusive, CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge. See my earlier posting on Sunday, March 24 for pictures. (Papers may vary.)

ScrapHappy will start at 6:00. Please RSVP so I will have enough kits on hand.

April Events and CTMH Specials


My partners (Anne and Sally) and I are still working on perfecting our schedule of events, so you’ll notice some more changes this month. We’re going to continue our Second Wednesday project club and we will also offer Card Class every month. Instead of having Scrapbooking 101 every month, we’re going to work some scrapbooking projects into Second Wednesday and schedule some special scrapbooking events throughout the year.

We will continue to offer a variety of projects. We do the up-front work by cutting paper and putting together kits, and we’ll be there to guide you every step of the way. Typically, you’ll just need basic tools and adhesive and we’ll provide the rest. Choose the event that fits your interests and schedule – or try them all! We usually fill all our available spots, so please RSVP early --- we want to have plenty of kits and supplies on hand. Also, we have events at two different Round Table Pizzas, so carefully note the location. Here are the events planned for April.

Second Wednesday

For Always Mini-Album. Sally has designed a mini-album using one of our beautiful new papers, For Always. The classic black and white patterns really pop when you add spots of color. Isn’t it beautiful?

  • When: Wednesday, April 10, from 7:00 – 9:00
  • Where: Round Table Pizza, 9500-1 Greenback Ln, Folsom (In the shopping center with Ace Hardware and Big Lots, near the junction of Madison and Greenback)
  • Cost: $15
Class size is limited. Please RSVP right away.

Card Class
4 New Cards. By popular demand, we are offering card class every month. I am the designer this month. As you can see, we're offering an eclectic mix this month. Don't you just love the chicken card? It was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest -- I couldn't wait to try it. Just to add a little fun, if you can think of a cute chicken-y saying to put inside, add it to the comments below and I'll send a prize for the one I like best!

This is a very popular class and we may have to cap the size, so be sure to RSVP as soon as possible.
  • When: Wednesday, April 17, from 7:00 – 9:00
  • Where: Round Table Pizza, 8822 Madison Ave, Fair Oaks (In the Raleys shopping center at the corner of Madison and Hazel)
  • Cost: $9
Please RSVP by April 12.

Second Annual Birthday Card Workshop

This event was very popular last year and we already have several signups, so it will probably sell out quickly. Sally, Anne and Terri are presenting the class. They are all great teachers and will have two great card designs to share.  You’ll finish the class with six completed cards.
  • When: Saturday, April 27, noon to 4 pm
  • Where: Rancho Cordova (directions will be provided when you register)
  • Cost: $15
Space is very limited. RSVP as soon as possible. Payment will be required in advance, by April 17.

Looking Ahead To May:
  • Second Wednesday: May 8
  • Card Class: May 15
CTMH Special Promotions:
