Happiness in a Cup!

Happiness in a Cup!

This super fun card is “happy” because of all the bright colors and that for some of us, coffee is happiness.  Love the smell of fresh coffee beans and coffee brewing.  This card is linked to the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  Stop and check out all the great cards. Better yet, whip out your own coffee project and join the fun.   It’s also made using the Freshly Made Sketches 292.

The papers are Prickly Pear.  The colors in the paper pack are nice and bright, just right for Summer.  Love the rainbow paper in the pack.  

The sketch is simple and fun to make.  The dies for the circles are from CTMH.  The coffee cup is Sugar Pea Design’s Coffee To Go Cup die set.  The sentiment is from Stamplorations Coffee Happy.

 No Worries Family Layout

Wanted to share another great layout from the workshop you can get free when you place a $25.00 order.  Cocoa cardstock is the base for all of the layouts in the workshop and you can get it for 25% off.  The No Worries sequins and the Enamel and Glitter Blue Dots Duo add the bling to the pages.

The title “Family” comes from the No Worries Compliments.  The mix in the Compliments is kraft chipboard and stickers.  On the arrows, put a piece of the scraps from one of the background and texture papers.

You can add flip flaps – 4×6, 3×4 and 3×3 – to get more pictures on the layout.   Here’s some close ups of the different elements from the pages that I just love.  You always need a layout for family events.

Together Under The Sun

Together Under The Sun

The 2nd layout for this workshop shows of the paper packs great patterns.  Love this combo.  The stripes along with the blue and ombre palm trees.  Add the word paper and it’s great.

The Cocoa paper sets of the colors in the paper.  It’s so easy to see why this paper is the #1 selling paper in this Seasonal Expressions!  I predict it will be sold out before August gets here.

The burlap ribbon is great and the title is over a Picture My Life 4″x6″ card where you can add your journaling to it.

The ombre affect is really popular and it’s captured nicely on this sticker.

This final cluster looks great over the pennants.  Use your thin and regular 3D foam tape to crate the different heights for dimensions.  You have several elements happening between the layers, textures, and patterns and it flows well together..  With a $25.00 order on my website, you can get the cutting guide FREE.  Check out all the great specials below

No Worries – Smile!

No Worries – Smile

Here’s the first layout of one of 6 from the Workshop you can get FREE when you place a $25.00 order for the workshop supplies on my website.

You can get the Workshop Your Way and have most of the elements used.  I added in some silver shimmer tape, the heart die cuts, Blue Enamel and Glitter Duos, and silver glitter paper.

The compliments are kraft and have a white overlay on some of the like “Happy Place” and several of the other elements.  Some are plain.   The wood grain sequins are fun and you have plain ones as well.  These are ones I’ll stock up on because they are neutral enough to work in several different elements.

Layer the burlap ribbon or twine over one element and under the “Smile”to tie things in.

Add a combination of the Blue Enamel and Glitter Dues with the No Worries Sequins to add very subtle bling to the pages.

I used the heart thin cuts to create this heart from the silver glitter paper. Use your journaling pen to doodle around the sentiment blocks.

You’ll need a pack of Chocolate Cardstock which is used for the base of the pages.  Best news?  It’s 25% off!  With this pack and the Workshop Your Way, you can have most of the elements used in this workshop, and the workshop FREE. Great deals all around for you!

So Perfect with No Worries

So Perfect with No Worries

Ready for your summer vacation?  Here’s some great paper and layouts to help you preserve those memories forever.  The colors are perfect for those beach pictures where you can celebrate being able to be barefoot, toes in the sand…what could be more perfect?

The No Worries compliments are a lot of fun with a choice of stickers – the “Relax” title along with the the kraft chipboard pieces, like the starfish.

I love the ombre effect on the paper for the sunset look.  The burlap ribbon adds some nice texture to the layout.  Create a cluster of compliments up in the upper left corner.

Here is the zip strip with the cute starfish.  You can use every part of the Workshop Your Way (WYW) when created the layouts and cards.  Take a look at the sequins. Can you see the stripes on them to give them a wood-like effect?  Super cute.

In the Worshop Your Way, you get all the different components of the No Worries collection to create this layout and 2 more layouts plus 2 cards if you desire by purchasing the additional stamp sets (with dies for easy cutting).

Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Here’s the first layout of this wonderful workshop that you can get free when you order $25.00 or more on my website!  A list of the supplies is available on my website here. The pictures don’t really do the layout justice.

I made my pages with gold and silver glitter paper because, initially, I only had the silver glitter paper.  When I got the gold glitter paper in, I decided to add some extra hearts in. In the end, I like having a combo instead.  The CTMH heart dies make it really easy to create different sized hearts with the same shape (hearts can have different shapes). Size and layering are important in having this work well.

The title of the pages comes from the My Girl set of compliments:

This is really a fun set of compliments.  Full of goodness and sayings you can use beyond a girl.  I think this is a great graduation saying.  What kid at high school graduation isn’t happy, to at least be done with school, and has big dreams?  SG is going to be testing for her yellow belt and is super excited.  I can’t wait to capture her face when she passes her test!

 

Here’s the 2nd page:

More hearts and and titles with fun glitter embellishments.  The black paper with the white rose outline looks really good on the black cardstock.  I like how the papers pop on black.  Don’t forget to use your zip strips!  Little borders can add a lot to the page.

Best Friends Layout

Best Friends Layout:

This is another layout that you can create with the Some Kinda of Wonderful Workshop Your Way kit.  The directions are available for you to download on the website unless you purchase it through my cash and carry at the crops where I’m vending or the my house.  My store is open on Tuesday and Thursdays for cropping and shopping as well as various weekends for CropTastic. Even if you don’t come to crop, you can come to shop and visit with us.

This layout would be good for a sleep over, a spa day with the girls, a girls’ night out, and whatever fun day you might have with your girlfriends or your daughter/niece and their friends.

The title is created using the Compliments over the top of the zip strip with the “Best Friends” stickers and the glitter crosses.

The glasses are super cute with the heart shapes.  They are one of my favorite stickers in the pack.  I have some pictures of two of my friends and I having a spa day a few years ago.  I’m going to pull them out and put them in these pages.  =)

Here is one of the Workshop Your Way layouts you can create.  Directions are available for you to download.   The directions come with a cutting guide as well as assembly directions.  So nice to have these done for you when you are looking for your creative mojo.  The guide will ensure that you use almost all of the paper pack to make 3 three layout and some cards.  No waste.

The black glitter compliments are wonderful.  They really pop out for making the title as well as being embellishments.

One of the great things about getting the Workshop Your Way kits is that all the matching products are included in them.  You can now purchase a matching cardstock pack separately to make even more layouts.  The compliments are great to add little clusters around the layout for added character.

Here you use the Picture My Life cards as part of the embellishment cluster and you could still add some journaling in there if you wanted to.

Don’t forget y0u can use that zip strip from the top of the paper to add to your layout out! Nothing wasted, LOL!  If you are a non-stamper, these layouts are perfect for you.  Stampers, this is another opportunity to use your stamps as embellishments!!

Flip Flap Winter Wonderland

Flip Flap Winter Wonderland:

As most of you know, when I create classes for the crops, you can purchase them in levels.  This time, it isn’t so because the My Reflections City Sidewalks Paper Pack sold out completely by the end of December!  Well, I had already created these snow layouts so it was what it is.

Kids and animals love the first snow (unless you are my 14.5 year old dog who has not time for this anymore).  I knew at some point, we’d have a first snow thus I created this layout for that.  It was the first snow ever for our pups, Huck and Finn (8 month old Mini Aussies).  SG and Ryder just love snow for snow.  I love watching them all play.

The directions are adjusted for cutting bigger picture spaces to accommodate having mats under the flip flaps.  You can put them down without this, I just feel it has a more finished look with mats.  This layouts has them double matted and both mats showing.   Both vertical 4×6 pictures can have flip flaps. Even the top 3×4 picture can have them as well.  I just did not have enough pictures for that.

I hope you were able to get Cozy Christmas as it’s retired now.  I love having thin cuts for my stamping. =)  The snowman is super cute.

While this pictures shows you the flip flaps, I want to draw your attention to the stamping.  1st and 2nd generation stamping of the trees, then stamping Winter Wonderland on the top.  Add the tree in Willow using the thin cuts to add more layers and dimensions.   I cut off the bottom on the tree and the top to have it be more like a tree outside than a Christmas tree.  The glitter snowflakes are from the City Sidewalks Compliments if you have them.

Here’s the right page.  I know my top, big picture is blurry – forgot to switch over to action. What I love is SG’s face – the joy of the snow and playing outside.  Blurry or not, it’s captured the moment of joy.  I used the thin cuts to create the trees as accents and the glitter embellishments come from the Compliments again.  I have some of these products left in my inventory should you want them.  =)

Flip Flaps:

This is the same flip flap book shown two different ways.  I’ve put 6 additional pictures in the space where only 1 was planned.  Means 7 pictures in one 4×6″ space!  That just saved me making one more layout (time and money).  Flip Flaps are inexpensive, between $3-$8/pack.

In a one picture slot, I put 4 pictures using the 4×6″ flip flaps.  I put a journaling block under the pictures. It’s one of the PML cards from the City Sidewalk paper pack.  You could also put another 4×6″ picture if you trimmed it down a 1/4″ on each side. =)

 

The bottom pictures are set up for 3×3 pictures and you can use 3×3″ flip flaps with this on all of them.  Again double matted.  I have added 2 more pictures to one of the 3×3 pictures.

I have opted to put my flip flaps on the page it’s self with the plan to cut the page protector and pull them through.  You do not have to do this.  The flip flaps can be used on top of the page protector.  I do recommend you limit the size of the “book” (using multiple flip flaps together) to 2 or 3 max as the weight will pull on the page protector.

With all the flip flaps, I’ve added a total of 12 extra pictures to the layout.  This would have been two more layouts or not using all the pictures.  Flip flaps just save you time and money.  They are amazing.  They change your whole perspective on how you scrapbook.  I have a $6.00 class where you get $6.00 of product to use in your albums.  Or you can have a layout class like above to learn to use the layout.

Winter Wonderland – Harbor Scrapbooking Jan Layout Class

Winter Wonderland

Nothing fills kids and dogs with more excitement than the first snow of the year.  We groan because that could mean days out of school, shoveling but for kids and dogs, it only means one thing – playing.  I created this layout with these pictures in mind.  I’ll show you on Friday the layout using the full City Side Walk packet (sold out which is why it’s not offered).

You can order this layout to make in class at the Harbor Scrapbooking Weekend Event (there’s room for more to come and scrap with us) for $12.00.  It comes with color directions and cutting guide.  I will make it and ship it for $15.00 (some of the cutting will be done and all the stamping will be done) plus shipping.  I used the Cozy Christmas stamp set with thin cuts (also retired).  Isn’t this snowman so dang cute!

I did some adjustments to the cutting guide to accommodate flip flaps.  You know me, I just love those things and everyone should be scrapping one event between two pages (it will save you time and money) using them.  You’ll be getting some 4×6″ flip flaps and some 3×3″ flip flaps.  If you need more, I’ll have them for sale at my store.  =)

We’ll get Winter no matter what so this is the perfect layout for it.  Please RSVP your layout so we can get them made up for you!  =) You can do this over in my Facebook Group.  This group is for my customers.  If you are a CTMH consultant, please email me directly if you want one.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
