Mother and Daughter Mini Book Workshop

Front cover and inside first page
The Mother and Daughter Mini Book Workshop is being held on May 7 at 1:30 pm. This is my sample book so you can see what you can potentially make with the book. This was a pretty quick book to make up. I used the Beautiful You Picture My Life cards and the My Creations Black Mini Book for this project. I accented with the gold foil tape as well as heat embossing several pages.
Pages 2-7
Pages 8-13

Pages 14-19
Last page
The other options for this mini book is the My Creations Kraft mini book. You can then choose your own set of Picture My Life cards from the many available. You will be purchasing at minimum a book and a set of cards to take part in the workshop (you are free to use prepurchased PML cards if you already have some).  Each pack of cards was enough to do 2 books depending on how you use the cards and how many pictures you use. I will also have accents, such as the gold foil tape, silver foil tape, washi tape and ribbons and of course many different colors of embossing powder to use along with the multitudes of stamp sets available. These extra accessories are included in the $5.00 workshop fee.

Please remember to bring along a tape runner, scissors, a paper trimmer and an assortment of pictures that can be reduced down in size to under 4"x6". 

Registration for this workshop will close next Thursday, April 28th at 8:30 pm. Please contact me with your choices of book and PML cards by the RSVP deadline.

Scrapaholics Unite Session 4 Class 12

Happy...whatever! This layout can go any which way - to a birthday, wedding, or even just a happy day. This is the Heartstrings paper pack from 2015, but I had lots left and thought it was quite festive. I did an emboss resist technique for the cake so that the stamp detail is white, while the cake itself is inked in different colors. I finished the layout with some washi tape pennants and a little saying. There is lots of room for pictures so the format can be changed any way you need it to. I used the May Stamp of the Month for this layout, it made the cake and the accent piece.

Scrapaholics Unite Session 4 Class 11

Welcome back to the Urban paper pack. We used this paper in a previous class for a family layout. I also purchased this super cute Teacher Appreciation Stamp Set that had this cute owl in a Grad cap that I've been dying to use (I loooove owls). I obviously don't have a real graduate, but Archer did get professional pics done for his preschool graduation last year that are just too cute. Now I just need to print the pics from his ceremony and doesn't the cool blue paper from Urban go so well with the school/graduation theme?

As for the layout, I used a cut out piece from the CTMH Artiste cartridge for the large blue background piece and accented with the slate backside of the Urban paper. The title is a cut from the Artistry cartridge and I popped in a polaroid shaped stamp from the April Stamp of the Month. You could turn this layout into a picture page as well and use all the funky cameras from the April SOTM instead of the graduating owl (there is also a globe with a grad cap on top in case you don't want the owl).

Scrapaholics Unite Session 4 Class 10

I'm not sure if anyone remembers this paper, but it's call Summer Celebration. It was a promotion a while back and I've always wanted to use this paper with the coordinating stamp set, but just couldn't find a the perfect layout. Well I saw some inspiration with the right page and all the little strips of paper and thought it made the very bright prints work really well together. This is a great layout for a paper pack you have left over that you don't have lots of paper left, just a few pieces, it could really work any which way, either horizontal or vertical. I added some cardstock as well as the cute phrases to play up the summer fruit theme. It could also be split up to be 2 separate one page layouts since I used the "Orange you sweet" on the left and "Pucker Up" on the right. The little piece on the bottom says "You're Berry Special". I'm thinking of using some pictures from berry and fruit picking in Kelowna on this layout. I finished it off with some glitter tape and some glitter gems.
