If you have been missing out on the interpersonal connections that come from crafting together with your best crafting buds, we have some wonderful online opportunities coming up next month that we would love to have you join us for!
National Scrapbooking Day Celebration
As you may know, May is National Scrapbooking month, with National Scrapbooking Day being celebrated on the first Saturday of May each year. We are planning a FREE all-day event on Saturday, May 2 to celebrate! The event will be held 11:00 am–11:00 pm (MDT) on the Close To My Heart Facebook Page, and will feature creative projects as well as product giveaways throughout the day. Join us live or catch up on the video after the event has concluded! Get more details and RSVP to the event on the Event page.
We're featuring six awesome creative projects as part of this event and would love for you to craft right along with us as we make them! To make that possible, we have created project bundles containing materials you'll need to make the projects. These bundles include brand new products that are not yet available to the public as well as exclusive items that are only available as part of the bundles!
While purchasing the bundles is completely optional, you will definitely want to check them out to see the fun that we have in store for this special event. Get all the details about these bundles and see the artwork you'll make with each by visiting the National Scrapbooking Day page.
Later in May, we will be holding a virtual Album Retreat, which we are opening to all who would like to join us! At our Album Retreat, we will spend two days putting together an entire album of beautiful scrapbook pages, with an emphasis on elevated artwork techniques. The album we have designed for this retreat features 20 beautiful 12" x 12" scrapbook pages, including 8 two-page layouts, 2 single-page layouts, plus a cover page and a closing page.
This event will be held May 15–16, and to participate, all you need to do is purchase the album bundle! There will be no separate registration fee; you can participate in this event for only the cost of the materials and the preparation work of cutting the projects and packaging them—oh, did we mention that the projects would be pre-cut? They will be! This will free up our time together to focus on technique instruction and assembly. We are even waiving the cost of the instruction, giving you an incredible value for participating in this unique event.
We'll begin shipping project bundles for Album retreat on May 1, so we encourage you to order yours by April 30 if you would like to join us for the event!
