Workshops Your Way™ Guides

Occasionally I am asked about where to find the instructions for the Workshops Your Way™ Kits offered by Close To My Heart. The Guides are files you can download in PDF format to your computer, tablet or phone that you can either use by reviewing them on your screen or printing them on your printer.

The instructions for Workshops Your Way™ Kits can only be downloaded while the Idea Book they are pictured in is valid. All of the WYW instructions for kits that appear in Seasonal Expressions 1 will be removed from my Online Business Address at 11:59pm Mountain time (where CTMH Corporate headquarters is located) on April 30, 2017.

When you are shopping for a Workshops Your Way™ Kit is the best time to download the instructions. While you are waiting for your package to be delivered you can review the instructions and contact me if you have any question so you can dive in as soon as your kit arrives.


On the product description page there are two links for downloading the Guide for that WYW; the links go to the same PDF. The first is right under the button to add the item to your cart and the second is at the bottom of the written description.

If you [left] click on the link, it will open the PDF in a new browser tab (this is the default in most browsers, but if you have changed the settings in your browser you may get a new window or a prompt asking what action you would like to take). When the document is open, you can either print or save from there.


The above screenshot was taken from Firefox, but is very similar in Chrome. There is a difference when you click the download button: in Firefox on Windows, the download is saved to your default Download folder and there is no option to change folders before the download begins while in Chrome a "Save As" dialog appears and you can choose where to save the file (see below for an example of the "Save As" dialog.

If you are using Microsoft Edge, I found you have to click somewhere on the screen before you will see the icons in the upper right for printing or saving. The icons are similar to above.

If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, I found you have to move your mouse to the bottom of the screen to get the save and print options to appear.


Whether you are using Microsoft's Edge or Internet Explorer, the save button works the same. When you click it a "Save As" dialog appears and you can choose where to save the file (see below for an example of the "Save As" dialog.

Alternatively you can right-click on the link to save the PDF to your computer.

In case right-clicking to save a file to your computer is a new-to-you concept, here are a few screenshots from a Windows 10 computer that I hope you will find useful:



If you use the Chrome browser, this is what your screen will look like:


Select "Save link as..." and then the familiar "Save As" dialog box will appear on your screen (see below if you are not sure what I mean by "Save As" dialog box).



If you use the Firefox browser, this is what your screen will look like:


Again, select "Save line as..." and then the familiar "Save As" dialog box will appear on your screen.



If you use the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, this is what your screen will look like:


Select "Save target as..." and then the familiar "Save As" dialog box will appear on your screen.



If you use the Microsoft Edge browser, this is what your screen will look like:


Again, select "Save target as..." and then the familiar "Save As" dialog box will appear on your screen.



After you have selected the option to save the PDF, you will see a "Save As" dialog box similar to this (no matter which browser you are using they are similar enough on a Windows computer that I only took one screenshot):


The file name will likely be auto-filled for you, but you can change it to a friendlier name so it is easier to search for in the future. You will most likely want to put the file in your Documents folder. I have a CTMH folder inside the Documents folder and a Workshops Your Way sub-folder. Use the location that works best for you.

I do not have access to a computer with the Mac OS to test and take screenshots, but from when I used an Apple computer last the concept of right-clicking and saving was not too different.

I hope this helps you to find and save the instructions for the WYW kits you purchase.

The current Workshops Your Way™ Kits are:

To make this information easier to find in the future, I created this page. This page will be available via a link to in the green bar above. There is also a link in the right side-bar.
