Me...then and now

This is the layout my workshop girlies did at their first meeting.  We used the old Enchanted Level 2 paper pack.  They loved learning how to make the layered flowers and were quite pleased with how pretty they turned out.  I had them focus this special layout on themselves since most scrappers scrap their families and don’t show up in a lot of pictures since they are usually the photographer also. Their mission is to find pictures that tell their story and bring their completed layout to the next meeting.  Notice the pull out on the right hand side with the flower?  It’s for hidden journaling.

Close to my Heart Convention Memory Game

This adorable cube was one of the projects we made at convention. The box comes with 24 3x3 thick chipboard squares. The box is called Memory Game (Z1614), but would be great to use as a daily devotional, get to know you questions, or as a special photo box. What a great gift to make for Grandma with pictures of all the grandkids! That's 48 pictures using both sides of the squares.  We decorated the box with the following supplies:
C1464 Blue Ribbon My Acrylix Stamp set
X7141B Elemental paper pack Level 2
1301 Bamboo cardstock
1388 Colonial White cardstock
X5914 light yellow and orange cardstock shade pack
X7141C Elemental compliments dimension elements
Z1612 Foundty Pin Clips
Z1368 Pewter Brads
Assorted Exclusive Inks and markers
Shapes cut from the Art Philosopy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686)

Happy Holiday Card Set

I know, I're thinking school just started and she wants me to think about Holiday cards already?  Well, yes she does... because I know how busy we all are these days. Time gets away from us and before you know's Thanksgiving!  So I thought this video would help ease you into a stressless holiday card making session.
