20 Card Workshop

I am really loving the new WISHES how to book. There are card workshops where you can make 12, 16 or 20 cards complete with cutting diagrams! It's a fast and fun way to get several cards made quickly. For end of the year gifts for my son's teachers I made the 20 card workshop and split it in half (10 for each person). I put them in a decorated box with envelopes. They were very much appreciated. Here's the picture of them. I'm having a 16 card workshop at my house in July. If you're interested email for all the details!

I'm almost done with the Back Country layouts but need to get the photos printed and mounted. Hopefully sometime soon!

In the mean time I made two graduation cards for some friends. Hard to believe but these are for a set of twins that I used to babysit about making you feel old!! I wanted to cards to be complimentary but not identical. I found two great cards in the new Wishes book. I love all the cards and have been playing with if a lot!

I'm Officially Blogging

Well I've finally figured out this blog thing! It's taken me a few weeks to get it the way I wanted but I've finally done! For me this is no small accomplishment. I am excited to have an outlet that I can easily share the papercrafting hobby I love so much. My plan is to post ideas, techniques, thoughts and some how to projects.

I'm currently working on putting together the Back Country Workshops on the Go. This paper is one of my favorite because I have lots and lots of great outdoor pictures to scrapbook. If you aren't familiar with Workshops on the Go let me quickly explain.

This is a great program that will help you get your scrapbooking moving in a direction. With a level 2 paper pack, My Stickease, a few embellishments and an instruction booklet you will complete 6 layouts with enough paper left over to at least 4-6 more layouts and some cards.

Each month I hold a workshop where you will put together these layouts. The workshop is $25 for the basic kit (this kit can be upgraded to include extra emblishments or coordinating stmap sets).

Just think 6 layouts complete each month for you to just add pictures to!! What a great way to get your scrapbooking moving. I'll post pictures of my completed layouts soon.
