Christmas Card Workshop!

It is time to make some FABULOUSLY simple Christmas cards! I will be holding 2 workshops for making these cards to try and fit with everyone's schedule. They will both be held on Tuesday, 1 December. The first one will be held in the morning, from 10-Noon, and the second in the evening from 7-9 pm. You can make cards in 5-card increments. The layouts are simple, with only 2 stamps per card, so they will only take about 5 minutes to make once you get the hang of it. Cards are $1 each, complete with envelope! Buy 9 and get the 10th for free, So, $5 for 5 cards or $9 for 10 cards. Your choice....You can make more if you want, too! I have plenty of paper, stamps, ink, ribbon, etc.

Please RSVP to if you can make it! Also, let me know if you will come for the morning or evening session.

Making the Most of Leftovers

I'm sure you've all used super cute paper to scrapbook a few layouts, and you are left with scraps of all that cute paper. Why not put it to good use instead of trashing it? I used a paper pack to complete 2 layouts, and had a good amount of paper left over. I took some white cardstock and added it to the other colors and prints of my "leftovers". It yielded nine cards! Whoohoo! Now I have great Thank You and Happy Birthday cards!

My two original layouts:

Craft Photo Block Workshop!

Are you tired of giving the same old gifts? Try something different! This Photo Block is a unique and inexpensive gift that can be created in 2 hours for only $10! It is perfect for a Dad's desk, or even a Grandma's mantle. With photos on each side, it can be flipped for a different look 6 days a week!

I will be hosting a workshop next Tuesday evening, 24 Nov, from 7-9 pm to create these awesome Photo Blocks. All supplies are provided (Close To My Heart Creations Cube, Emporium Collection papers, ribbons, stamps, brads, glue, and anything else you desire to make your creation YOURS). All you need to do is bring 6 photos. Each block side measures 5in x 5in, so make sure your photos can be cropped to about 4x4.

Please e-mail me at if you'd like to RSVP for the workshop. I hope you can make it!

More Layouts

Yes, I completed another 6 pages yesterday! It only took me two hours using a Level 1 Kit. This one is called Magic Moments, and I love all the fun colors. All 6 pages completed for $9.95! I'm still on track for being about a year behind...haha! So these pics are from last Nov-Dec. One of these days I will get caught up!
