*This target date is not guaranteed, but I will be working hard to meet it. I will be completing the Boutique and Memories in the Making (National Stamping Month) projects first. If you'd like, I can mail the these projects early so they arrive to you by September 1. Let me know and I'll include the additional shipping in your invoice.
I love that Close To My Heart designs beautiful workshops and kits for us to sell. Although we have a beautiful full-color Idea Book, sales soar when customers see the products live. My sales are always higher when people can see these beautiful, completed workshops in person.
However, it can be daunting to make samples for each one: ordering supplies, cutting, stamping and assembly. Also, there is the expense of purchasing the stamps, paper, embellishments and adhesives. I have often wished the CTMH sold us completed samples of these projects.
A couple years ago, I was putting together my workshop samples and it occurred to me that it would not take significantly more time to create multiples of the layouts as it did to make my single sample. I had long wished that "someone" would put together my samples. It was a "light bulb moment" and the idea for these samples for others was born.
So save your money, time and adhesives and let me make samples for you!
All samples are consultant quality and packaged in ziplock bags for protection. Layouts and Picture My Life sets include white cardstock placeholders for photos so that they have a finished look. If you have photos, you can either replace the placeholders or trim your pictures leaving create so that the placeholder creates a white mat.
You can choose to receive your samples display-ready in Memory Protectors or Clear Bags.
