October Scrapbook Class!


In October we will be creating with the Jeepers Creepers Kit.  What a playful kit this is!  I think you are going to enjoy creating with it.  I especially love the little eyes in the assortment pack! You will use 2 different pocket page protector plus designs with this kit.  I also used some of the left over papers to create 9 cards this month!  These cards are generic-they can be used for any occasion.  I love the hello/thanks thin cuts and thought they worked perfectly.  I hope you like them, too!

Class will be held on OCTOBER 13th.  We are meeting early in October because my parents will be visiting.  Thus, I will be placing the orders on OCTOBER 3rd so PRETTY PLEASE have your order to me no later than Sunday! 

Have a friend I do not know?  I will give a 10% discount for each friend who registers with you.  After all, it is more fun to create alongside a friend!  If you have not been to one of my classes in the last 12 months than I would like to offer you a 10% discount as well!

I am forming new scrapbook clubs that will begin in NOVEMBER.  Being a member of Scrapbook Club entitles you to a minimum $25 FREE shopping Spree, the math you are hostess,  a FREE stamp of the month when you are hostess, Free Idea books while you are a member and fabulous layout patterns!  The only requirement is that you place a minimum $35 order each month for the duration of the session (usually 6 months).  I always provide a shopping list for each month's pages and then there are optional add-on products.  If you do not  want the kit of a specific month you can place a minimum $35 order.   All classes are held in my Stamp/Scrap Studio.  You can participate long distance via Kits To Go!  Contact me to sign up today!

I am also accepting orders for completed albums 
(where everything is done for you-all you do is add your photos and memorabilia!) for $275.00

It’s hard to believe that school has been back in session for over a month now.  Before we know it, it will be Halloween, Thanksgiving  and then Christmas and then the year will be half over! “The days are certainly long but the years, they are so so short!” It’s always fun for me (and probably you, as well) to see all the photos posted on social media of kids first and last day of school photos, of field trips, special award ceremonies, concerts, recitals, artwork, etc.

Once these photos are posted, where do all they end up? On a computer, permanently posted on Facebook and social media?  Will your kids have these to go back and look at when they get older?  What about their kids?  A few years back I was visiting my parents and spent the day looking at countless photos of my mom & dad’s childhood.  It was truly a memorable day for me listening to my parents share stories and seeing photos of my mom and dad as they went through school, growing up and changing. They participated in theatre,  Sports, student government.  They were on the honor roll- they even had a few of their report cards!

Don't let your or your children’s photos and school year memorabilia  get 'dusty' on a hard drive.....Let's put all these events in an album!  You may think... ugh.... I would NOT know how or where to began. This is where I come in and you will be surprised at how easy this can be!  PLUS I guarantee you will have fun doing it!

I’m excited to offer a THROUGH THE YEARS - SCHOOL WORKSHOP designed by fellow consultant Dana Kessler.  You will create a 2 page layout for Kindergarten through 12th Grade.   After this workshop, you will have completed pages to add pictures as your child finishes each grade!  No more trying to 'catch up’!  If you children are all grown up then you can do what I am doing and add your photos and memorabilia from years past to your pages after the workshop.  This project is perfect for EVERYONE (those who are pregnant, those with toddlers, those with school age children and those with adult children)!  It is even a great project for YOU to put together your school year memories…just like the memories my parents shared with me several years ago!

Basic School Days Kit - $110 includes the following:
(1) pack of Enchantment Fundamentals Papers (24 sheets) 
(28) sheets of 12" x 12" White Daisy Cardstock

A Perfect Gift Suggestion

Tweens, Teens and even Adults LOVE Instagram. It's all the rage now. I must admit, I Instagram is my favorite social media venue. Our phones are flooded with photos. And then what do we do when we get the warning saying our phone is almost out of storage? We start deleting those precious memories.  
I'm here to offer a solution of what you can do so that you don't have to discard those treasured memories!!
Close To My Heart has a very fun and simple memory keeping system that suits instagram (actually, ALL PHOTOS) photos perfectly. It is called "INSTA-LIFE." These 4 x 4 mini albums start with #Life. Photos from vacations, graduations, and everyday antics will feel right at home with these colorful albums and cards, featuring bold designs and lots of attitude. Everything you need is perfectly sized for portability and sharability, making it fun and easy to remember good times. I can put together a fabulous bundle that makes for a treasured birthday, holiday, anniversary or even a "just because" gift perfect for all ages! Here are images of the product available, as well as some pages of mini albums I have put together. The beauty of this memory keeping system is that you can create an entire album in just an hour or two! Completed albums make priceless gifts, too! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or are interested in me suggesting what to order to create a fabulous gift bundle! I also offer workshops in my studio right here in my home. You can schedule a private Insta-life workshop for you and your friends or attend a workshop I host. You can also schedule me to do birthday parties, or any special occasion. If you are not local to me we can do a workshop via Facebook Live. These are always a lot of fun, as well! It is my passion to help YOU preserve YOUR PRECIOUS MEMORIES! I"d love to help you do just that!
