Tonight was my 1st ever BINGO Event and I think we all had a great time!   I wanted to do something different this year instead of holding an annual Open House to showcase the new Annual Inspirations (which goes live to customers on September 1).

If you missed it, I'll share some pictures of what we did!  We played 5 Bingo Games.  Each game winner won a fabulous Close To My Heart product.  The final winner in our Cover All game won the best prize of the night - a Rolling Tote and a Gift Certificate for Close To My Heart products!

Each attendee got a Goody Bag filled with brand new product that we were going to be using on our projects. These Goody Bags are My Creations Designer Bags.  The "Scrap Happy" and Scissors images are both cut from the new Artistry Cartridge.  The colors used here are each of the new colors in the Enchantment Color Pallet.

Our first winner of the evening was Pam Martin.  She won 2 Hostess Rewards stamps from the new book.  These stamps can only be 'purchased' by Hostess so they are exclusive!

Our first project of the night was this card:
The cute polka dot paper is from the Zoe Paper Pack.  The glasses overlay are from the new Artistry Cartridge as well as the banner. The "Be Happy..." stamp is one of the stamps that is included in the Artistry Cricut Collection.   We used Shin Han Touch Twin Markers to color.  We accented the card with vellum Zoe compliments, Coral Shimmer Trim and Green Enamel & Glitter Gems.

Our 2nd Winner of the night was Laura Harbour.  Laura won a new Accessory Tote!

For our next project, we created a Picture My Life Page using the new Through the Year PML cards and 2 pocket cards that were cut from the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.  We accented our cards with more Zoe Compliments and Green Enamel & Glitter Gems.

Our 3rd winner of the night was Brittany Clinton who won a Through The Year PML kit with a Variety Pack of Page Protectors.  

On to the next project!!  We created a 2 page layout using the Zoe Paper!  Again, we used more Zoe Compliments and Green Enamel & Glitter Gems along with Coral Shimmer Trim.

Our 4th Winner was Pat Davis who won the Shoulder Tote along with a Zoe Paper Pack!

For our last project, everyone got to create a Cut Above Christmas Card!  Sorry - No picture here but you will see it soon once the book goes live on September 1.  These cards took only minutes to put together!

Now for the Grand Prize Winner!!  Everyone got a chance to purchase extra Bingo cards for more chances to win the grand prize! All of this money was given to the Grand Prize winner in the form of a Close To My Heart Gift Certificate.   So... Maureen Nokes won the rolling tote and now she gets to fill it up with $165 worth of Close To My Heart products!!  Way to Go Maureen!

Well that wraps up the night!!  I want to give a special shout out and HUGE thank you to my Downline Cathy Swank who helped me out tonight!   THANK YOU!!

Don't worry if you missed out on the Bingo Night fun and prizes!  You still have a chance to win!  On September 1, I will put an open party on my website titled BINGO NIGHT!  It will be open the entire month of September.   For every $25 order you place, you will have a chance to earn Hostess Rewards!  At the end of the month I will draw a winner (or more than one winner depending on the amount of total sales).   You MUST join the BINGO NIGHT party when you place your order to qualify for the drawing.

Stay tuned to my blog during the month September as I begin showcasing LOTS of new products!

Get Organized with the August Special!

August is half way over!  Have you taken advantage of our Get Organized Special?  During the month of August when you purchase the new Marker Tote you will receive Balloon Wishes for FREE!   Both of these items are new products that will be found in the new Annual Inspirations on September 1 but Close To My Heart has made them available to our customers one month early! 

I love my new marker tote!  It rolls up perfectly and I can throw it in my rolling tote (they match!) or I can place it into one of my medium organizers.  When I'm using the markers I just unroll it and I can all 24 colors perfectly.   I created a card with my FREE stamp set and used my ShinHan Touch Twin markers.  I paired the stamp with our new Zoe paper (which is ALSO available to order now!).

The colors in this card make we want to celebrate!! 

Also available now is the Accessory Tote!  Purchase the Accessory Tote and you will get 2 new style sheets for FREE!  Order yours today!
