Getting Ready for Christmas Crafts

I love fall and the Thanksgiving season.  It makes me sad that Thanksgiving seems to get skipped over as everyone starts preparing for Christmas.  However, if you are a cardmaker, you probably want to get started on your cards soon.  Close to my Heart has some great options this season for your Christmas crafting and it doesn't matter if you are a beginner crafter or an advanced one, there is something for you.  Click on each picture to be taken directly to my Close to my Heart site.  If you make it to the end of the post, you will see some great deals that I have posted for the month of November.  You don't want to miss them!

Cut Above
For the beginning crafter (or the one who is running out of time) there is a fun option for making your own treat bags and cards.  The Cut Above kits come with the pieces pre-cut and all the embellishments you need to put your project together.  Just add your stamps, inks and adhesives and you are ready to go.  Though the project itself is disposable, the stamps and inks will last a long time so you can use them on other projects.

Cut Above Holiday Treat Bag Kit
Other items needed to complete the project:

Cut Above Holiday Card Kit
 Other items needed to compete project:
Cut Above Christmas Card Kit
 Other items needed to complete the kit:
Did you notice that all 3 of these kits use the same ink color and that the 2 card kits use the same stamp set?  That's a great way to stretch your budget even further!
Workshops on the Go
Workshops on the Go are great kits that come with all the paper, stamps and embellishments you need to create great cards or scrapbook layouts.  The stamp sets are "D-sized" sets worth $17.95, making these kits a great value.  Plus, they are exclusive to the Workshop so you won't find them anywhere else in the catalog.
Snowhaven Workshop on the Go Cardmakers Kit
You can make 15 cards with this kit.  All the instructions are included.  Just add ink and adhesives and you are ready to go. 
Yuletide Carol Scrapbooking Workshop on the Go
You will receive full instructions for this gorgeous 2-page layout which uses the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  Don't worry if you don't have the cartridge, because alternate instructions are included for not using it.  Plus there will be enough supplies left over to create an additional 2-page layout.
Love to make your own designs?
Don't worry, because Close to my Heart is full of great stamp sets and paper packs to make your own cards or scrapbooking layouts.  Plus, we have 4 amazing Cricut bundles that expand your possibilities even greater.
Ready for a great deal?
Every month Close to my Heart offers a "D-sized" stamp set for $5 with every $50 (before tax and shipping) stamp set.  These sets are only available during the month they are featured so you don't want to miss them.  This month's stamp set is:

However, if you purchase $50 from the "Christmas Card" Gathering at my site here by November 30, you will receive one ink pad of your choice absolutely free. - OR - Purchase $100 and you will receive a free paper packet of your choice.  Don't add it to your cart.  I will contact you to see what color of ink or what paper pad you would like and will send it out in December after the gathering closes.These two offers can not be combined, though you may still purchase the Stamp of the Month for $5.  Isn't that a great deal?

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
