Scrapbook Layout Workshop!

Time for a fun workshop! I've got 8 "You & Me" Kits from Close to my Heart. The original retail price was $39.95 but I got them on sale and will pass that discount onto you! For the price of $25, you can join me for a 2 hour workshop where we will complete two full 12x12 Layouts (4 pages). The kit will be yours to take with you, which includes a CTMH stamp set (retail value $17.95!). The kit includes everything you need to complete the layouts; cardstock, ribbon, pearls, chipboard, and stamp set. {I have the ink and sponges}.

Layout #1

Layout #2

The "Kit"

The cool stamp set, it's yours!

You will need to bring your:
Paper cutter, choice of adhesive (I recommend removable Dotto), and photos. The pink/brown layout requires 3 4x6 photos, and the green/grown layout requires 1 6x6 photo, and 3 3x4 photos (just crop a 4x6 for these...). You can complete the workshop without the photos and add them later. I also have extra paper cutters if you need to borrow one! So, basically remember your adhesive and $25, and you're set! :-)

I am hosting this workshop twice because I am capping each event to 4 people for space and supply reasons. The dates/times are:

Thursday evening, 23 Feb, 7-9pm
Sunday afternoon, 26 Feb, 2-4pm

I hope you can make it to one of the workshops! We will have fun stamping and cutting paper, and learning new scrapbooking techniques! Please RSVP soon and tell me what date you want (Thurs or Sun). Only 4 spaces available for each day.

Valentine Card Workshop

Need to make some Valentines for friends, family, or your husband? Come on over for a card workshop on Tuesday, 7 February! I'll be offering both a morning and evening workshop. Kids are welcome at the morning workshop! 0930-1130 for the morning, and 7-9 at night. Cards are $1 each to make, or 11 for $10.

There are 6 examples to choose from, only 1 says "Valentine's Day" so you could actually use these year round when you want to send a lovey dovey card. We'll be using Close to my Heart papers and the CTMH Cricut cartridge which is rockin' awesome and cuts the shapes before you stamp them (all hearts in this case).

Please RSVP if you can make it, and give me an idea of how many cards you plan to make. Hope to see you!

"THANKFUL" Banner Workshop

Looking for something to hang across your mantle for Thanksgiving?

How about joining me for a fun 2 hour workshop where we will cut, glue, stamp, and decorate this adorable "THANKFUL" Banner. We will start by using the CTMH Chipboard Banner, measuring 7x6 for each banner flag. The solid chipboard will last for years to come, so this cute banner can be packed away and used again! Everything is included in the workshop fee of $15. The banner, ribbon, glue, adhesive, cardstock, embellishments, etc.

The pictures don't have enough light to do the banner justice. It really is cuter and "brighter" in person! I made use of the Fall color palette as well as my "leaves" stamps.

I'm holding the workshop TWICE on Thursday, 27 Oct. The morning workshop will be from 9:30-1130am, and the evening workshop will be from 7-9pm. Please RSVP soon to hold your spot because I only have 5 CTMH Banners. If I have a handful more of RSVPs by this Wednesday, I can place another CTMH order in time to get here by next Thursday. RSVP Soon! Thanks!

Katelyn's Arrival Announcements

I was so excited to make PINK {birth} announcements! Woohoo!

Katelyn is obviously not a baby, but I still felt she should have an announcement! After designing the card and buying all the supplies, I quickly changed my plan from mailing them to my "Christmas Card list" over over 100 people, to about a dozen immediate family (and one cousin) who would put them on the fridge or something! I apologize to all my friends who didn't get one. It's nothing personal, I really just made them for my sisters/brother, mom, mother in law, sister in laws, and Brian's grandparents. That's it! Oh, and Cousin Patty because she thinks she is my sister. LOL.

I hope you like them! I think they turned out super cute!!!

Time for a WORKSHOP!

I know, I know... it's been a while, but I'm back! And I have plenty of good excuses as to why I haven't kept up with my scrapbooking blog...most having to do with our new DAUGHTER Katelyn! We've been home from China for exactly a month, so it's time to get back to scrappin!

This workshop will be fun AND cheap! We're going to make chipboard albums and the workshop fee is only $5~ I found these albums for cheap so I'm passing the savings on to you. The workshop fee includes everything to make these cute 5 page albums, you just need to bring 5 small photos! The "flower" pages are about 6x6 inches, but with the shape, you will have to crop your photos to 4x4 or even 3.5x3.5. It's a simple, 5 page payout and it'll take about 2 hours to complete (that's factoring chat time, ladies!).

I'm holding the workshop THIS Thursday, 13 Oct, from 9:30am to 11:30am. Bring your kids and they can play with Katelyn while we get to scrappin!

Please RSVP my commenting on the blog or e-mailing me at

Space is limited to 5 people! Thanks and I hope you can make it!
