Cats and Bats Workshop Your Way

Cats and Bats Workshop Your Way

Check out these 6 layouts you can create with the Cats and Bats WYW G1136.  These layouts are from the Studio Sus and you can get the directions for free when you purchase the WYW from my website!  I love that three of the layouts are about girlfriends, best days ever, and birthday party.  I’ve not completed the layouts because I need to get the pictures on them.  I’ll be using some of them for my birthday. =)

You’ll receive electronic copies of cutting directions, pictures for assembly, and a “the rest of the story” to create these awesome layouts.  No into Halloween?  Then remove the Picture My Life cards that are used as titles and replace them with photographs.  Use the backside of the papers are that are “non-Halloween”.

The colors of the Cats and Bats paper pack are fun.  You can see that I changed things up using Gypsy paper for some of the bases. I like the brightness and think adding a shade of purple in, makes things pop more.  Eggplant looks good as well.

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!

Oh Deer WYW

Oh Deer Workshop Your Way

When you purchase the Oh Deer Workshop Your Way (WYW), you will get printed directions from me to create this three beautiful layouts!

I love this layout because it shows how you can use the paper to celebrate a birthday.  This paper captures the elegance of an important event.  It pulls out the color of her dress. The outdoor background fits this paper perfectly.

Here’s another layout showing family, again, not Holiday and Christmas.  The joy and pleasure of this family shows through these pictures. Pulling in the red helps to brighten up the pages.  It’s great that the Workshop Your Way contains the Oh Deer Compliments which provides the great title ” Simple Pleasure”, the pennants, and other embellishments.  The white and gold twine is also included.

This layout shows the joy of the season – family.  This paper is just to perfect for all of the outdoor times you have from getting that Christmas tree, walks in the forest or park, sledding, and more. A lot of these events will happen in January, February, and maybe March.  The sad news is Oh Deer retires on December 31, 2016!  Don’t miss out on getting this incredible collection before it’s gone.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
