CTMH Convention 2013

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

What a fabulous time I had in Orlando, Florida at the Close to My Heart annual convention! DSC_1200

We stayed at the beautiful Coronado Springs resort. It really felt like a resort, with the charming south-of-the-border style buildings and extensive gardens and walking paths.

Disney world

Close to My Heart was generous enough to give every attending consultant a twilight pass to a Disney park of our choice, and I also stayed one extra day, so I was able to enjoy two visits to the Disney theme parks!

It wasn’t all parks and vacation, convention is also about learning and teaching. I was lucky enough to be chosen again to teach extravaganza, a huge undertaking but I love sharing with my fellow CTMH sisters.

Thanks to Haley Bell Dyer for taking my photo during my presentation.

I was assigned the new paper pack, ProPlayer. If you’ve been wishing for a masculine teen paper pack, this is the one for you. In my class I focused on expanding a limited color palette with color theory and theme selection. I’ll be sharing lots of my artwork from my class in upcoming blog posts.

Here is one of the cards I created for my class display, using ProPlayer paper. You’ll be able to start ordering this new paper pack beginning on August 1.

Big news! There will also be a new exclusive Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge available next month. The Cricut Artbooking Collection will take your scrapbooking to new levels with layouts and mini albums that you can create with just a single key and dial size. I received this cartridge to create my extravaganza artwork and I have to tell you, it’s amazing! I’ll be offering a pre-order special on this new cartridge, so check back next week for more details.

Convention was super fun, and you taught am amazing class! Thanks for showing me lots of possibilities with ProPlayer that I probably wouldn't have found on my own.
