Let’s Talk About Class

Let’s Talk About Class

One of the specials this month from CTMH is “You’ve Got Class”.  As we are wrapping up scrapping our pictures of our kids from school or preparing for the next year, this collection offers you the ability to get some of these projects done.  Expand it further, thinking about teacher gifts and you can be ready to go when the kids go back to school in a month (that was a fast summer)!

Preserve the best of your child’s school years with the You’ve Got Class collection of products. This special features a paper collection, exclusive stamp set, and workshop kit all designed to commemorate the passage of those formative years. But act quickly, these products are only available through September 30!

The unique You’ve Got Class workshop contains a set of materials that you can use to create 14 single page scrapbook layouts — an entire album with one page for each school year. The workshop kit also includes our True Fit Folios, giving you a place to preserve precious keepsakes and mementos from each year. Download the instructions for this workshop below!   Many of you ask about True Fit Folios when I see you cropping.  You have all of August to get those ordered!!

Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

“Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?” is a song done by Signing Times (a great series to teach kids sign language) that just sticks in your head.  I was humming it while making this wonderful workshop from Studio Sus:

This one just makes my heart happy inside with the bright colors.  Best of all most of the product used in this workshop is on sale!  Best deal right?

 

This workshop is a nice mix of scrapbooking, cardmaking, with some stamping and thin cuts if you choose to do so.

More on the Postcard Perfect Collection

More on the Postcard Perfect Collection

There are several different product options for Postcard Perfect Collection,  so it’s a little crazy to keep straight.  Here’s the run down.  First you have the Paper Pack with 6 different sheets of background and texture paper, two-sided, so you have a total of 12 different patterns.  There are 2 different patterns of white embossing on vellum included in the packet.

 

The cardstock pack has 12 pieces of cardstock included.   It is important to pick up the cardstock pack with the paper pack because there are colors in the pack that are not available outside of the pack.  It’s fun to have new, fun colors. =)   The workshop for scrapbooking from Studio Sus uses the Espresso cardstock for the base pages.

 

The next option is the stamp set, Postcard Perfect Stamp Set.  The title “Amazing Family Vacation” is great for lots of other pages outside of a tropical or beach vacation.   The tag stamp is create on both cards and pages.

 

If you’d like to have a project that is quick and easy and helps you get pages into the album fast, try this option with the Postcard Cut Above Kit.  This is my favorite Cut Above – I love having the different options – stickers (nice cardstock thickness), punch outs, and easy to assemble:

If you love it all, there is a great bundle with all of the above for $53.95, saving 20% off the $67.80 price.  You get everything you need to have in this bundle.

Need to create a vacation album or just getting started?  You have four bundle options which include either a D-Ring Album or Post Bound Album, journaling pen, adhesive, and the Postcard Perfect Cut Above kit:

 

There are some many amazing workshop options you can pick from, from my collection.

Enjoy this amazing Postcard Perfect Collection.  I can’t wait to see what you all create with it!

Thanks for stopping by to see all that is new in May.  Enjoy this Postcard Perfect Collection.  With all the different workshop you can choose from, you’ll be sure to find it fun and a way to get some great memories scrapped.

Celebrate!

Celebrate!

While I’m up at the Memories Made Here crop, I’m sharing this cute Celebrate card made with Gimme Some Sugar and the April Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1804 Color Your Life.  My pictures are not the best here.  The Peacock Stitched Ribbon and Cork Shapes are so much fun to use.

Bashful Glitter Paper is used to add some bling.  I have used this paper more than I thought I would because it’s a pale pink and I’m not really a “pink girl”.  Prefer bolder, brighter colors to bring in happiness.  The softness of the Bashful color provides a very subtle, elegant look to cards and pages, which works well for babies, weddings, and more.

The sentiments in this stamp set are great.  Large enough to use for scrapbook yet usable as shown above for cards.  Some of the letters are designed to be colored, which is very popular right now.   You can see this in the free layout kit you’ll get when you purchase this stamp set for $5.00.

Did you know you can take the bottom border and use it to make baseball stitching?  One of the joys of acrylix stamps is they are flexible and you can create a curve in them when you place them on the block before you stamp.  I’m going to create a card showing this for Monday.  Using the same card design, you can change the look by changing the paper (part of the fun of two-sided background and texture papers)!

April things to keep in mind:

  • Free Layout Kit when you purchase the April  SOM S1804 Color Your World for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.  I have an album of art up in the FB group. – Check it out
