Scaredy Cat

Treats and tricks and candy.  Ghosts and goblins and witches, oh my! 

Do you love Halloween?  Then I hope you will love these fun Scaredy Cat layouts.  Be sure to take lots of pictures of you little goblins and Halloween parties and decorations.  Here's how you can display them in your albums.  I used our new CTMH Scaredy Cat papers and embellishments for these layouts.  I love the colors and the energy they reflect.

Want to come to a workshop and make these layouts in September?  Contact me for details!

Chalk it Up!

The new Close To My Heart Chalk it Up kit has fresh colors and a fun design.  Here are the layouts my scrapbook groups will be making in September.

You are always welcome to join in the fun--just contact me for details.

The first layout, Celebrate Good Times, has room for 4 square pictures on the large chalkboard mat, while the second page has room for 3 more, plus lots of room for journaling.  Don't like to journal so much?  No problem--just add more photos on some of the journal blocks!

The second layout has room for LOTS of photos because I used Flip Flaps.  I used both the 4x6 pack ($3.95 for 15) and the small assortment pack ($3.95 for 16) which contains the 3x3 size I needed for this layout.  If you haven't tried Flip Flaps, you really should.  They let you add lots of photos to a layout, saving you time and money!  No need to make a page for every photo.  You can add a stack of Flip Flaps to one mat, or just add one--whatever suits your needs.
I also used our new Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape.  Love this stuff! It's so easy to dress up a page with Washi tape.

Here's another example of how to use it.  This page was almost too simple.  I used the Washi tape, our gold shimmer trim and some of our new Paper Fundamentals resist papers.  Added a couple of other Washi tape designs, and cut out the sentiment using Artbooking cartridge, and was finished in under 20 minutes--gotta love that!

Git 'R Done Layout Workshop using CTMH Balloon Ride

Earlier this month we discussed rediscovering the joy of scrapbooking.   After talking with a few of you about that, it occurred to me that maybe I need to do more to help you in that endeavor.  So, (deep breath), I'm bringing back a workshop that I haven't held in a very long time.

Do you remember the "Git 'R Done" workshops?  It's all about (big surprise) getting those layouts done and in your albums. In that spirit, I put together a new Git 'R Done workshop, and had so much fun doing it!   The pages are simple, everything is cut for you and we really just enjoy putting the pieces together and GETTING THOSE LAYOUTS DONE!  You go home with layouts ready for your pictures and a great sense of accomplishment.

I used the fresh and versatile Balloon Ride papers.  Take a look at what you'll create in this fast and easy workshop:

While the pages are simple, they use the fresh and very popular hot air balloon theme.  I can see these layouts used for graduations, birthdays, summer or spring activities, and heritage photos.  Let your imagination soar!

Here are the details.  I will have an afternoon and an evening class for your convenience.
