NEW “Stretching Your Workshops” Program!

Seaside WOTG kit

I’ve been busy the past few weeks getting together a new program that I like to call, “Stretching Your Workshops.” If you are familiar with Close To My Heart products, then you have probably seen the Workshops On The Go (WOTG) Scrapbooking (and Cardmaking) Kits that are available. If you aren’t familiar with them, see below.

For anyone that has ever purchased and completed one of these WOTG kits, you will have noticed that you have a TON of products left over. Right? Although the kit is generously packed with an entire paper packet, an exclusive stamp set, and full packages of accessories, the instructional brochure only guides you through a complete 2-page scrapbook layout. Although there is an additional layout that is suggested, you have to search for it online, and own the corresponding CTMH How-To publication to help guide you through the layout. Even after this layout is completed, you will still have a lot of left over supplies.

Here is the layout that the Seaside Workshops On The Go Scrapbooking Kit will help you complete (with or without Cricut cuts):

This is a gorgeous layout, but don’t you wish that you had more? After I complete my WOTG main layout, I am always left with so much product. Of course, I always put it to good use by designing a few more layouts. However, I know that a lot of people purchase kits like these for the guidance, and would appreciate ideas for even more layouts… especially since there is enough product in the kit for so much more. That is why I have designed the “Stretching Your Workshops” Program.

What is the “Stretching Your Workshops” Program?

The “Stretching Your Workshops” Program was designed to get more out of your pre-purchased Workshops On The Go (WOTG) Scrapbooking Kits by Close To My Heart. This program does not substitute for the WOTG layouts themselves, but rather complements them by using up some of your remaining papers and supplies!  You will still create the main 2 page layout shown in your WOTG kit!

With this program, you will create 2 additional layouts (4 pages) and still have leftover paper pieces for smaller projects, such as cards. Two pieces of Colonial White cardstock (or your own cream colored paper) will be required to complete these layouts. These extra papers are not included in your kit but are required as “base pages” for your layout.

Here are the extra layouts you will be able to make with this program:

So how much is this program and how do you get it? First of all, it’s completely free. What?!?! Yes, FREE. Well, actually it’s free for those that have purchased their Seaside Workshops On The Go Scrapbooking Kit from me. It is an added value item that I would like to give to you as a thank you for your purchase. I LOVE to see people get the most from their products, and I am hoping that this program will help!

I have created a 20 page color guide for you! The program includes instructions and tips, FAQs, a guide to paper and color matching, a 7 page cutting guide for each paper used, and pictures of completed artwork to be used as a guide for assembly.

To get your copy of the Seaside “Stretching Your Workshops” Program emailed to you as a PDF file, simply order your Seaside Workshops On The Go Scrapbooking Kit on my CTMH shopping site HERE, and then send me an email requesting your files! It’s THAT easy!

If you are a CTMH consultant wanting to use this program in your own business (i.e. customer workshops), simply place a $30 order on my OBA for ANY products you choose, and then email me a request for the Seaside PDF files.
