Upcoming Events

I enjoy hosting local events where I can teach you fun crafting techniques as you create something new and I have quite a few fun events planned for you in May.  Not only do we have a new catalog arriving (which you will get free at each event), but we are also celebrating National Scrapbooking Month!

Coffee & Cards

Totally Techniques

Create with Cricut

Scrapbook All Day Crops

Weekend Retreats


Being a Consultant means that I have a stack of new products sitting in my work-space ready and waiting for you to play with, BUT I am only allowed to give you a few sneak peeks. Don’t be upset, though, because I will have samples of future workshop creations at each of these events for you to see.

Here is what you can make in May

May 3rd – May 5th Ladies Spring Crafting Retreat
(I still have two spots open)
Come celebrate National Scrapbooking Month with a weekend of crafting fun. Relax, Craft, Create, and Win Prizes!

Adding More Photos to Layouts
We all have those few photos we hate to throw out, but don’t want to create a new page for. Come learn new ways to add more photos to your album without adding more pages.


I am also looking for TWO PEOPLE who would like host a crafting club in their home or church each month (or quarterly). All of my hostesses receive a FREE Stamp of the Month and a few extra goodies from me for being willing to let me come teach you some new crafting techniques.  If this is something you are interested in, please send me an email and we can start planning.

I can’t wait to see what you create!



Beautifully Tea-Riffic Workshop

I am always amazed at all the new products that Close to My Heart creates for our Seasonal Expressions catalogs.   This month, we are featuring this adorable Beautiful Friendship collection full of fun florals, polka-dots, and tea images.  On May 19th, you can come play with this amazing collection of papers as we create a Tea-riffic Teabag Holder and Beau-Tea-ful Card.


The cost for this kit is only $7.00 and includes everything you need to create both the card and the gift.  You will have the option to make additional Tea-riffic gifts using other papers from the Beautiful Friendship collection. If you would learn more about this workshop and the kits available you can contact me or visit my Beautifully Tea-Riffic Workshop Page.

The deadline to register for this event is Friday, May 13th.  If you plan on attending this event, you are also welcome to come to my CTMH Crafternoon where you can spend some quality time catching up on your projects, talking with friends, and enjoying time away from life’s demands for only $10.  To sign-up for this workshop or the CTMH Crafternoon, please email me at misscarriectmh@gmail.com and let me know which kit(s) you would like to purchase.  If you cannot attend, you are welcome to purchase the kits or guides through my online store.

I hope to see you at one of my upcoming workshops.  Each person will receive a FREE copy of the Seasonal Expressions Two catalog and a special treat from me.  I can’t wait to see what you create!
