Roxie Workshop, 1/21/12 2PM

I loved this paper when I first saw it last July, and I finally was able to play with it today! I usually use the Workshop on the Go for my scrapbooking workshop, but for Roxie I decided to use stamp sets I already have and just use the paper pack. I used the stamp sets B1369 Rosy Regards, the December Stamp of the Month Mad about You S1112, and I will use the C1474 10 Things for my titles once I chose my pictures to go with the layouts. For embellishments I cut shapes on my cricut to match the Mad about You set, the bling assortment Z1466 and black waxy flax. I added 1/2 a 12x12 sheet of colonial white for the embellishments, plus 6 more sheets of colonial white for bases. I also added 2 sheets of desert sand.

The cost of the workshop is $9.95 for the paper pack. You will be able to use my stamp sets at the workshop or at crops. You can also add additional embellishments if you desire. I am placing an order on 1/1 or I can send you information to order online. It will be a lot of fun and I hope to see you on 1/21!

Elemental Scrapbooking Workshop, 1/14/12 2-5PM

I'm really early in posting about this workshop, but better early than late, right? :) I loved working with this paper and the stamp sets and embellishments with it. The stamp sets are so versatile, I know I will definitely use them again, especially the one in the Workshop on the Go! If you participate in this workshop, we will make the WOTG layout (first layout) at the workshop and you will receive cutting guides for the four additional layouts along with color pictures so you can complete them on your own later. Or come back to a crop to finish the other layouts!

Since this workshop uses the cricut and a lot of new techniques, it will take the entire time to make this layout. You will learn how to use the cricut to accompany the layouts, stamp images cut from the cricut, and color and make the rolled roses. I loved this workshop and I am sure you will too! Please let me know by 12/23 if you are interested in participating.

Another Quick Layout!

I've been all about quick and easy layouts recently, trying to catch up on my scrapping! This is a really quick layout I did of pictures from last fall. It came together so quickly using an Imagine layout and some coordinating embellishments. And have I mentioned how much I absolutely love this cork alphabet set??? They are so quick and easy, add texture and look cool, and they go a long way for only $5.95!

A quick layout

This is a quick layout I made of our Thanksgiving last year. I used the Olivia papers from last year, the new cork alphas which I absolutely love, and some other miscellaneous embellishments. A quick and easy layout!! I've been all about those lately...trying to catch up. :)

Wonderland Workshop, 12/10 2-5PM

This paper is so perfect for snowy, winter layouts, or for cards. I made this workshop using the workshop on the go and the embellishments included in it and added 5 more layouts! When you participate in this workshop, you will receive a printout with cutting guides and color pictures of these layouts. We will complete the WOTG layout in the workshop and then depending on how fast you work, you may get the bases of these pages completed. Then you can come back to crop and use my cricut and snowflakes stamps to embellish if you need to! It's a great deal - you can purchase the WOTG for $29.95 + shipping and tax, or if you don't want to stamp, you can purchase the paper pack for $9.95 + shipping and tax. There are also a lot of embellishments that coordinate that I used in my layouts. Please contact me if you are interested in participating!

Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

This is a card I made a while ago, but wanted to wait until after I gave it to post then I forgot. I cut everything from the new cricut cartridge and I was really excited about how well it turned out! I love the 3-d flowers we can cut and then roll. They add so much dimension!

More Believe Layouts

I have to be honest, when I saw this paper in the new Idea Book, I wasn't crazy about it. But then when I saw it in person it grew on me. Then I ordered the Believe Workshop on the Go and once I started playing with it, I love it! The colors are so bright and cheery and went so well with my playful Christmas pictures. I also can't believe how much I've made from the pack - 3 2-page layouts and the Advent Calendar! And I still have some scraps left!

Advent Calendar Workshop, 10/8

If you liked the Advent Calendar idea on page 54 of the Autumn/Winter Idea Book and wanted to make it too, this workshop is for you! We will make cover the memory game box and the 24 pieces and decorate them too! Below is the picture of the one I made, minus the green ribbon I still need to order for the box! If you are interested in this workshop, please contact me by 9/24 so we can order supplies. Thanks!

Believe Workshop on the Go 11/12

We will make this layout at the workshop on 11/12. If you look at this layout in the Idea Book, you will see I changed it up quite a bit. I used different sides of the patterned paper and different color of cardstock. I thought it went with these pictures perfectly! I will use the rest of my paper for the advent calendar and hope to post it before the weekend is over. If you are interested in participating in this workshop, please contact me before 10/29 so we can order supplies.

Sonoma Layout

This is one of the Sonoma layouts we made at the Sonoma workshop a couple weeks ago. At that time I did not have pictures or embellishments on it. I decided to use it for some snow pictures I had from 2010 instead of heritage type pictures that were shown in the Idea Book. I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut the snow flakes from Petal and Kraft cardstock and used the Bronze glitter gel and bling buttons to embellish. (alphas are not CTMH) Love the way this turned out!!

Dreamin Scrapbooking Workshop, 10/29

I loved this paper when I saw the new Idea Book, but I love it even more after completing the workshop on the go and the samples for this scrapbooking workshop! The paper is just gorgeous and went so well with my pictures from last fall. The workshop on the go kit is $29.95 and should be ordered 10/15 if you would like to participate. If you wish not to stamp, you can purchase the level 2 paper pack for $9.95 and the stickease for $4.95. Please let me know if you are interested in participating, it will be a lot of fun! I also used the stamp sets Harvest Happiness (C1463) and Unscripted (C1465) as well as a LOT of new embellishments! Here are the pictures:

Dimensional stars, pearl paint, I used the spray pen with the pearl paint, and the cool new embellies! Please let me know if you are interested in this workshop.

Can you believe this card is made with a Halloween stamp set??

I decided to try to come up with alternative ways to use this month's Stamp of the Month set, Wicked. I'm not a big Halloween fan, but I have to say this is one of the cuter Halloween sets I've seen. I loved the background stamp and used it with some of the colors of the new "Dreamin" paper - Pacifica, Goldrush, and Chocolate. I made the Pacifica flower using the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge! So easy and it's cute too!! The Stamp of the Month set is $17.95 or $5 with a $50 purchase. You can see the set here.
