We had a fabulous time this past Saturday at my ‘When You Wish’ Celebration & Crop. There was lots of wonderful fellowship, food & fun…and lots of time to create!
Upon arrival, everyone that RSVP’d was presented with a new Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book and a special gift from me.
For my special gift, I made mini gift bags using the new exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy collection and a darling exclusive My Acrylix stamp set that all attendees received at the Awards Banquet at Convention…I had so much fun playing with my new exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy collection!!!
The ladies that arrived by 10 a.m. put a ticket (cut and stamped with the exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy collection) with their name into my on-time drawing bowl and the winner received this adorable card gift set that was inspired by the fabulous Lisa Stenz…
Congratulations to Sarah for being on time and winning!
Everyone in attendance also got the opportunity to see how the new exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy collection worked and they all made a cute little pillow box that was just the right size for a gift card.
Almost everything for the pillow box was cut using the new exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy collection. The only piece I had to cut with my Euro Personal Paper Trimmer was the 3/4” Dreamin’ B&T Duos® Paper!
Yes, even the sentiment and flower were cut using the exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy Cartridge.
Here’s a little tip and a look at just ONE KEY on the pad…
See the red arrow? I learned that it’s helpful to label the rows of your key pad (A,B,C,D,E) and then the columns (1-10)…not literally on the key pad, but in the booklet that comes with your cartridge. This is especially helpful if you have a hard time seeing the little picture of the key pad and the red button that is below the main images in the green box.
Well, I think that about wraps up my recap! I had a wonderful time sharing about my convention adventures and all the amazing new products Close To My Heart has for this Autumn/Winter.
