WOTG Classes

  WOTG Class
Classes are held on the first Friday night of each month starting at 6:30. As a group we decide on what paper packs we want to create with & in what order. We also pick accessories. You will need at least a "basic"  kit to be able to complete the projects & you may want to upgrade to the "better" or "best" kit. Many projects will include products from better or best kits. "Basic" kit cost is generally $30 & $35 (plus tax & shipping.) I send out an invite 4 weeks prior with all the products listed for each kit & you order online from the invite. Your order will be shipped to your home.

Here's what you need to bring to class:
*Adhesives, (glue pen, pop dots, glue dots & tape runner)
*Tool kit  (including: paper piercer kit,  good scissors, sanding block or sand paper & any of your favorite scrapbooking tools 
*Treat to share
*Your own drink
*Any of your favorite CTMH accesories that may be used on layouts ie: DE, buttons, brads, rhinestones, ribbons, ect
*Neutral CS, White Daisy, Conlonial White, Black, Bamboo, Desert Sand

December 7th, “Two for One!”  Scrapbook Class

Friday Night 6:30


This month we will be working with “La Belle Vie” a French Victorian beautiful kit and “Clementine” a fun calico kit in soft neutrals and twilight blue as an accent color, very pretty.

La Belle Vie has a touch of an old Victorian feel in pinks, rich mauves and neutrals. With its graceful script and flowers collage look including elegant butterflies and subtle patterns. These pages will work perfect with your Mother’s Day, wedding, baby girl, prom or heritage photos. The versatile neutrals will go with any theme.


Clementine’s soft neutrals and rustic calico patterns will blend well with most any theme. I like that the patterns in this kit are so easy to work with for maximum creativity. This kit has my favorite “Compliments” 2 6”x12” sheets of canvas stickers. If you haven’t worked with our canvas compliments yet you will love how easy it will be to embellish your pages and how the texture will add another dimension.


Join us for the next Scrapbooking Class using “La Belle Vie” and/or “Clementine” on Friday Dec. 7 @ 6:30. We will be putting together some awesome pages. You are welcome to choose one or both kits to work with. We’ll be creating at 11790 7 Mile, Lowell, 49331. Turn west on 7 mile near Grattan Auction House & Slayton Lake off Lincoln Lake road.

Special Announcement

Velvet Rub-Ons Discontinued Soon
The vendor we use for producing our velvet rub-ons will no longer be supplying these products to us, which means that all velvet rub-ons are now available on a “ basis and will be discontinued when our stock is depleted. The products affected by this are:


Z1742 Parlor Velvet Rub-Ons
Z1743 Festive Velvet Rub-Ons
Z1700 Dark Chocolate Tapestry Velvet Rub-Ons
Z1733 Black Tapestry Velvet Rub-Ons


We regret this unexpected outage. We anticipate running out within a few days of this announcement, so if you had planned projects using any of these products, I urge you to place your order immediately.


I am so sad about this, these are one of my favorite new products in our catalog. They are very rich and luxurious looking. I love the texture and they give my layouts and the designs are perfect. I’m definitely going to order some before they are gone. Please make sure to get the Z1742 Parlor Velvet Rub-Ons as we will be using them with our Avonlea Kit in January. Make sure to order right away as every ctmh consultant is going to be stocking up on these and letting all their customers know so they will go fast.
