CTMH Gimme Some Sugar

I have some more artwork to share with you today. I’m excited to share it with you!

The featured paper packet at CTMH this month is Gimme Some Sugar. Have you seen it yet?

Pictured above is the entire scrapbook kit.

And here’s the coordinating scrapbook stamp set.

Until now, I’ve played only with the bulk paper from the packet. I’ve decided that I should show you the whole kit and caboodle. So, here’s what I’ve got, so far!

I have another layout in the works, but I’m not quite finished it yet. Stay tuned!

This picture of my daughter worked well with one of the journaling cards from the cut apart paper in the kit. She lost her tooth at school- while eating her lunch- and consequently swallowed it. She was terrified the tooth fairy wouldn’t visit, so she wrote a letter to her, with the help of her teacher.

I’m excited to share more with you from this kit! Hope to see you again soon!

April Card Blitz Creative Projects

I finished April’s card blitz today, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

I realized towards the end that I should throw a couple Mothers Day cards into the mix, since it’s in May! There’s also a mix of birthday, anniversary, wedding, thank you and get well cards.

I’m open for orders right now. If you’d like any one of these cards, or all of them, let me know. They’ll be shipped to you as a kit, along with easy to follow instructions. $25 CAD.

You’re invited to my card blitz on April 29 if you live in the Whitecourt area. It’ll be held at the Days Inn at 2 pm. Bring a friend and get your geek on! In 1.5 hours, make as many cards as you want. There will be a minimal amount of fussy cutting, the rest is already done for you! Scissors are provided, though you should bring your own adhesive. The cost of the blitz is $25.

Will I see you there? I hope so!

April Layout Blitz Creative Projects

The layouts for my blitz in April are complete!

One of them is Christmas themed! If you’re feeling festive, then this event is for you! The deadline for registering is April 7; the fun happens on April 14. $40 gets you these four 2-page layouts, plus I’ll throw in the two bonus single page layouts for $5 each, making your total $50 CAD.

If you can’t make it, no sweat. Just let me know. I’ll make up a kit for you, as long as you’re able to supply the base pages and can purchase the Stargazer stamp set. It’s available only until March 31, so get your orders in soon! I’ll cut and stamp most everything else for you. It costs the same as above, plus the cost of the stamp set if you need it. Find it on my website here.

I hope to see you or hear from you- I’d love to share this workshop and kit with you!

April Layout Blitz Bonus Projects

A new round of workshops begins in April, and I have the bonus layouts complete. Wanna see?

I scraplifted myself both times. Have a look!

You’ll have to excuse the photos in this layout. I meant to create it with photo mats first, then add the pictures once it was completed, but I often forget. Since they’re there, this layout is going into an album I’ve been commissioned to make. I’m trying to make things easier for myself by recycling projects. The top layout is going to be used as the creative project for an upcoming Home Gathering. In addition to being placed into the album I’m making, both these layouts are also bonus projects in my Layout Blitz scheduled for April 14.

Would you like to create these layouts yourself? They’re $5 CAD each, and I’m willing to create a kit for anyone that wants them. (You’ll need to purchase the Stargazer stamp set from my website for an additional fee. Available only until March 31, 2018). Everything else will be done for you. Comment below to reserve your own kit. (Must be a Canadian resident).

Stay tuned for the rest of my layout blitz projects! (And ways to purchase them).

April’s TEDS Events

TEDS, as in The Everyday Scrapbooker, as in CTMH 😉

Lots of events are coming up, and I thought I’d share them with you 😊

In April, I’ve got two public events to share with you: on Saturday, the 14th, I’m hosting a layout blitz. There will be four 2-page layouts to create- make one or all of them! The choice is yours! The cost is $40, and includes two single page bonus layouts for an additional charge. The blitz begins at 2 MST!

Then on the 29th, I’m hosting my card blitz. There’s 11 cards to choose between. In 1.5 hours, make what you’d like. That could be three cards, or all 11. You choose! The fee is $25. 2 pm the fun begins!

Both events will be held in the breakfast room at the Days Inn Whitecourt.

Now, I have a little secret to share with you. National Scrapbooking Day is coming up. It’s on May 5, the first Saturday in May. I’m planning a special event for NSD, and I’m hoping to make it a monthly event. Isn’t holding paper crafting events such a great idea for NSD?!

The event I’m planning? It’s a Day Crop! And, the best part is that there’s no registration fee!! Instead, place a small order of $30 on my Close to My Heart website, and that will count as your registration fee! There will be no workshops, either. Bring what you’d like to work on, and that’s all you’ll need. Supper will be provided. Join me from 11 am-11 pm Saturday May 5. It’ll be a great day!

As always, if you’re interested in hosting a Home Gathering, or would like to join my team (perhaps do both??), comment on this post or send me an email. I’d love to help you with both!

Friends Always

Hello friends! I’m dropping in to share another two page layout with you!

I’m crushing hard on Gimme Some Sugar. I love the colour pairings, the pattern (the flowers are great for fussy cutting and using as embellishments. Did you know that?!); it’s bright, fresh and summery. I can almost smell summer with this paper. (The pictures enable me to hear the sounds from the event- rodeo- we were at, too. I love it).

This layout is the third instalment in my layout Buffet. It’s coming up on March 24, from 5-8 pm. Kids are welcome- childcare is free at Bugz & Beanerz on Wednesday evenings! If you’re in the area, treat yourself to an evening out!

Join me again tomorrow so I can share the last project we’ll be making. You won’t want to miss it!

Out of This World

Happy Wednesday. How did we get here so quickly? A minute ago it was Monday! I’m currently working on another project, but wanted to take a quick break to show you my latest layout.

How cute is this paper?! It’s called Stargazer, and it’s perfect for all your astronomy lovers, boys and science geeks! (My daughter is one of them). I tried tying horses and space together…how did I do? 😂

This was their first experience riding a horse, and I’m sure they’d tell you it was out of this world. Their minds were blown, and frequently ask when they can go again.

This is project two in my layout buffet. Stay tuned to see more. More is coming!

XOXO Layout

I have a new layout to share with you today. I scraplifted myself when I created it, using the new Gimme Some Sugar paper to put it together.

I haven’t filled in the journaling yet, and I’m not really sure why. I came upstairs from my haven to snap this picture before I got that done, I guess. I’ll fill it in at some point- before it’s put into an album, likely.

This layout is available as a bonus kit for those that are attending the layout buffet on March 14. If you’d like to make this yourself, all that’s required is to purchase the supplies I used and I’ll email you the instructions for free. (There’s only four items on this supply list). Embellish as you see fit!

Supplies Used:

All these products are available on my website. Visit it here. Message me if you need help ordering!

Seasonal Expressions 1 Layout Buffet

Hi friends, I have a bit more to share today about a new workshop I’m organizing.

Coming up in March- the 14th from 5-8 pm, to be exact- I will be hosting my very first layout buffet! From my (limited) experience, this type of workshop is fairly new and considered “uncharted territory” by a lot of consultants. I’m excited to try it out, and I’m excited my customers are willing to experiment with me!

There are 4 double page layouts we will tackle, challenging ourselves to complete them in the 3 hour time limit. There will also be two bonus single page layout kits available for purchase, for $5 each. The fee for the buffet itself is $40. All the materials will be pre-stamped and pre-cut; everything will be supplied. Bring along your tape runner, if you have one, and just assemble!

Here’s how I envision it’ll work: to simplify the process for everyone, printed and illustrated instructions will be found for each layout spread at each of their respective stations. The sample I made will be displayed as well, with my pictures attached for a good visual. The samples are also posted right to the event page on Facebook- with and without my photos.

The bonus layouts will also have instructions included- for free. They will be displayed along with my sample double page layouts.

I’m currently still working on the projects we’ll create in this workshop, and I’ll share the rest here as I complete them. Here’s what I’ve created up to this point:

Project #1 with and without pictures

Bonus single page layout #1

I’m so excited about sharing these projects, I can’t remember what else I needed to share with you! Well, if I think of it, I guess you’ll be hearing from me again rather soon!
