Black Friday and Merry Christmas Special:  Place an order of $20 or more from the 2013 Fall/Winter Catalog or the Holiday Gift Guide from now until December 6th and receive a coupon for a 20% discount on a future order.  Your Black Friday order will entitle you to be placed in a drawing for a chance to receive the Hostess Rewards for that online party.  Be sure to check out the list of Retired Products that aren't going forward in future idea books.

You're invited to scrapbook with me at my home on Wed., December 4th or Wed., December 11th at no cost.  I'll make a pot of soup and you may bring your projects from 9:30 a.m.-9:00 p.m.  Working?  Come after work to relax and unwind. 

Upcoming workshops :

Dec. 10th- 1:00-4:00 or 6:30-9:30     Sparkle and Shine:  I will provide the Sparkle and Shine paper pieces cut,  the Silver Shimmer Trim, and silver metal flower  to create the 4 "Believe" and "Joy" scrapbook pages pictured, as well as my stamp set(s) and stamp pads for you to use. You may use your own embellishments or else purchase some from me, if desired.

Dec. 18th- 1:00-4:00 or 6:30-9:30  Frosted WS on the Go:  Create the 4 scrapbook pages with precut pieces from the Frosted paper pack and my stamp pads and stamp set.  Embellish as desired.

December 30th-1:00-4:00 or 6:30-9:30 Sparkle and Shine WS on the Go:  Create the 4 scrapbook pages with precut pieces from the Sparkle and Shine paper pack and my stamp pads and stamp set.  Embellish as desired.

I decided to use some Whisper cardstock as the background for this layout instead and save the Ruby cardstock provided for a future project.

Please RSVP for all events and workshops well in advance so that I can order any necessary supplies.  315-331-1407

Cost is $20 for workshops, payable in advance or $15 with a $20 purchase, or purchase your own WS on the Go Kit and either you or I can cut out your pieces and the class is free for those.  Please bring scissors, tape runner, a straight edge, if desired, pop up dots, and your Versa Mat, if you have one, for stamping on.  If you are unable to attend, but would like to make any of the projects shown, we can make other arrangements.

Layout Using the CTMH Sparkle and Shine Paper Packet and the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

The ornaments and the title, "Joy," were cut out with the new Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  I embellished each ornament at the top with the Silver Shimmer Trim (Z1799).  The title was cut out of Twilight cardstock and could be placed on either page, depending on the placement of your pictures.  Further embellishments included Clear Sparkles (Z1752) and Red Glitter Gel, along with the Lagoon Paradise Assortment Twine (Z1702) and a silver metal flower.
