La Belle Vie Extra Layout #1

Here is my version of the "My Stickease" layout coming straight from the catalog!

Aside from the My Stickese set, I used the Mocha Opaques Adhesive Gems to spice it up a little!

A huge seller so far!!

And here is what the set actually looks like:

And while I actually have made a tag from this awesome set, I have no photos to show for it yet.
So if you'd like to see some artwork, head over to Kristine's blog where you can also begin the blog hop of many consultants who have made different things with this particular set of stamps!

Remember, this set is available ONLY IN OCTOBER, and for just $5 on a $50 order!

Avonlea Extra Layout #1

Here is my first of 5 extra layouts from the Avonlea line.

As you may be able to tell, I did end up ordering the filigree charms for this layout, and used some of the hemp I already had.
I actually still have plans of using the chocolate marker when it becomes available to purchase on this layout as well, but as I have no idea when that will be, I figured I'd post this without!

Next Workshop CLUB starting November

To save myself some time from trying to reinvent the wheel, I decided to steal some of this from my old post about my Workshop club. 

Firstly though, we'll be starting this next workshop in November. The night/time has yet to be determined and will be based on the availability of those interested in joining. So let me know as soon as possible whether you're interested or not and we'll get the dates all set. We'll likely meet within the first or second week of each month.

If you are anything like me and need some structure and commitment to actually get some scrapbooking done, then I have a solution!

Workshops on the Go Club

Close to My Heart has created 10 Workshops on the Go kits that anyone can purchase and use however they'd like. The kit includes the following:
  • 14 sheets of paper 
    • including 6 - 12"x12" B&T Duos (2 of each 3 double sided designs)
    • and 8 - 12"x12" solid colour cardstock sheets)
  • set of stamps (exclusive to the kit)
  • 1 or 2 different sets of embellishments
  • instructional brochure (detailed instructions including measurements and cutting guides)
The kit promises that 2 full double page layouts (4 12"x12" pages total) can be made with the materials, plus if you add only a small bit of extra material, you can make the bonus project which is usually a set of 5 cards. I have now done 7 different Workshop on the Go kits and I've made the 2 layouts they outline, and I kept going and I have some sets where I created 3 MORE double layouts, some with 4 MORE double layouts, and I believe I'll be getting 5 MORE double layouts out of Avonlea as I'm currently working on that one. The only things I've had to add have been some cardstock for backgrounds plus a single pack of extra embellishments (but I didn't have to, I just happened to have them). Some of the extras I've done in the past can be found here: Stella, Sonoma, Pemberley, Victory #1, Victory #2, Victory #3, Florentine #1, Florentine #2

I have decided to run a club type format to have a commitment from a group of 5 to 8 ladies (men are welcome too...but at this point I don't know any who scrapbook) for 5 to 8 months (each to be hostess once).

I have outlined how they will look here.

But basically, we'll meet once a month, each club member will purchase a kit for $29.95 for each month and we'll work on them together with a goal of finishing them completely on the night of the club. This way, you are actually using what you buy, and getting your photos into beautiful scrapbook albums!

**There are options to deviate from this if you do not like the entire kit chosen for that month, or if you do not want the stamps that are in the kit. Check out my entire page dedicated to Workshops On the Go.

And seriously, let's actually get something accomplished with our photos this year!
