Didn’t get the supplies last month?  Here’s an updated version of the list.  Order now and you can still come, have a great time with us!  There are some modifications to the list as the Rainbow Sale is not longer applicable.

July things to keep in mind:

Cheers To You

Cheers To You

This is a fast and fun cardmaking workshop – Cheers To You – using the Central Park colors along with this fun hot air balloon! Instructions for cutting and assembling are in the kits now.  The embellishments are there too.

 

These cards have celebration sentiments on this – “Best Wishes” and “Cheers To You”.

I like the watercolor look of this “dots” paper.  How it overlaps and “mushes” into each other.

Making Memories

Making Memories

While I’m here at the CTMH Convention making memories, I’m sharing this great layout using the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and the Studio Sus Workshop.

Because I’m going to use these layouts to scrap pictures from our Appalachian Trail Adventures last year, I really enjoyed getting these layouts done.  These adventures with Aunt Lauren are a once in a lifetime adventure as she does not plan to hike the trail again.  Too much humidity for her!

The Picture My Life cards that you can cut out from one of the papers in the kit provide some great titles and journaling spots.   “Real Authentic Family Memories” with the word “Escape” through it, works so well because out on the trail, it’s real, it’s an escape, and we created some awesome family memories this way.

“Making Memories” is cut from the Thin Cut Alphabet.   Use the Fresh Air Compliments to make layers or clusters in different areas.   I used a number of different embellishments that I had around.  I love scrapping from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Take some time this summer to celebrating making memories.  Time comes and goes fast.

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

You can get two better topics together with the Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air paper.  It’s really an awesome “marriage”.  I’ve started working on our jaunts from last summer to see parts of the AT when my sister hiked it.  This layout is from the Studio Sus Fresh Air Workshop Guide (you can get it free with a $25.00 product purchase from my site).

Here are some close ups of elements from the pages.  I used silver foil paper rather than gold.  There is no stamping in this workshop.  It’s done from the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and a few extras, like the Silver Foil (or Gold Foil) paper and a few extra embellishments I had on hand.

I’m finding that I use the Thin Cut alphabet more than I thought I would. It makes crisp, clean titles for pages.

 

This cute cluster is from the Fresh Air Compliments:

The wooden embellishments from Fresh Air Shapes are a nice change.  They add a lot to the pages.

June things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Have a creative day!

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!
