Wandering Scissors Virtual Stampers Club March 2015 Edition

Have you ever considered joining a Virtual Stamp Club?  Now's the time to give it a try!
I've created a "Virtual Club" that anyone can join! What that means is we don't meet in person, everything is done through mail and email. You can purchase any single kits that you like or sign up for the 6 month club to receive automatic delivery of products from the Close to my Heart current Idea Book.
Your kit includes one brand new stamp set plus 4 pre-cut projects using a variety of CTMH papers and embellishments with pictures and complete directions for assembly. Total cost for these kits including shipping is $30 . You will learn new techniques and see lots of unique ways to use one stamp set! You will need your own tools, blocks, inks, adhesives, etc; but products may be purchased from me and added to your monthly shipment. Bonus: When you participate in 3 consecutive months, you will get $5 off the 4th month.  Pretty cool, huh!?  Have fun while being creative, all from the convenience of your own home!! 
Are you ready for some close-ups!??
 Your March 2015 Kit will include some beautiful papers from the CTMH Brushed Collection.  LOVE!
The beads and all the other products to create these beautiful projects are also included.
 The directions with detailed photographs will be emailed to you.
 The card below is called a Sun Burst Card.  and yup, You will learn how to make one.
 You will even have enough paper to decorate the inside.
 oh my!  Look how adorable that embellishment is!
 It's part of the closure for this sweet little gift bag.
Aren't they lovely!?
If you are interested in joining the Wandering Scissors Virtual Stampers Club or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Oh My Gosh!  I LOVE this card!  I love it so much I haven't even cleaned up after myself  because I was so excited to share it with you as soon as I could!  The card uses almost all 11 the stamps that come in the set FOREVER IN MY HEART.  Yup Eleven stamps in the set! WOWZA!  But wait, I haven't done the inside yet!  I bet I'll be using the rest inside.  Ok, I'll stop blabbing.  Check it out!

I used the Edge Distresser and Sanding Kit to take my distressing over the top. Then using a Sponge Dauber I added Saddle Ink to all the edges.  Even the doily, that I had cut up, got a dose of distress.
To give the card more of a sparkle (we all could use a bit of sparkle, right!?) I sprayed some Glitter Mist all over the card.  It came out so subtle and so perfect for this card.
Always on my mind, forever in my heart.  What a beautiful sentiment.
The stamp set is only available through March, so if this set pulls at your heart and if you need it, I'd hop right over to my Shop and put this cutie on your 'gotta have this' list.
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous day!
