Chalk It Up to Summer Vacations

Remember the good ole days of summer vacation?  Nothing planned except summer camp and maybe a week or two for a family trip.  Nowadays, summer is a busy time for me.  Not only do I have work just like the rest of the year, I also need to squeeze in out of town trips (that I really enjoy!) for family events because a lot of my family (all of the kids and most of the adults) do get the summer off.  

So I've had to reschedule the Scrapbook Workshop I had planned for August 28th.  This is actually a good thing because if you didn't sign up and you would like to participate, you still have time!  Place your kit order by September 5th and join me for the workshop on Friday September 19th at 6pm.

During the workshop, you will complete two 2-page layouts (pictured above).  You can participate either in person or virtually.  In your kit will be all the materials needed to make the layouts, with all the paper pre-cut and the Cricut cuts completed.  The cost is $20 if you come to my house the night of the workshop or pick up your kit.  The cost for having the kit mailed to your house is $26 and you will also receive a detailed instruction sheet with pictures of the completed layouts.  Because I had to postpone this workshop, I will also be having a Halloween themed workshop at the end of September.  Details coming soon, but it will be a two-page layout and some treat bags.  I hope you can join me!

Card Buffet

I've been very busy lately making up new card kits for my next Card Buffet on August 12th. My goal is to have 24 kits to choose from.  I love making cards and this has been a great excuse to do just that!  Now that I'm close to my goal, I can get back to some other crafty projects.  

My niece wants to make a mini book based on a tv show she likes.  I helped her make one a couple of years ago based on the mermaid show H2O. Maybe we can squeeze in a crafting session before she goes back to school!

Picture My Life

I can't wait for my Close To My Heart Picture My Life workshop!  This kit will help you put an album together in no time, and you'll have plenty of material left for more creativity!

Let me know if you would like to join me on July 17th at 6pm to create a Picture My Life album and a few other coordinating projects.  The cost is $35 and includes one Picture My Life set, a journaling pen, and all supplies to complete the bonus projects.  I recommend adding a My Legacy Album to your workshop so you can take home a complete showcase of your memories!
