Pemberley Streamlined Scrappin' Kit

This is the full Pemberley Workshop on the Go kit, the $35 one. You can use my stamp set if you don't want to buy your own this time. The layout we're doing has tons of flowers on it that I will cut out for you on the Cricut, you'll stamp them and assemble! We will also use this stamp set:

Aren't those big flowers to die for??? Love them!!

I will post photos asap of the three layouts we'll be making. I just returned from a quick trip to Florida to go to the Scrapbook Expo with my friend Penny, so I'm not so motivated today to get out of bed!!

The History of Scrapbooking

I found an interesting article today on Scrapbook is the link!!  And did you hear that Scrapbooks, Etc. is ceasing publication this summer?? So sad, that's my favorite scrapbooking magazine.

Stella...Studio J style!

This Friday my Streamlined Scrappin' Club is working with the Stella Kit. I thought I'd share a Studio J layout using Stella as well. So cute! One thing I really love about Studio J is unlimited My Stickease use--you can use the same images over and over, resized and rotated, and embellish that layout!

Somerset NJ Scrapbook Expo!!

Are you going to the Somerset NJ Scrapbook Expo June 29th and 30th?? I am always there working in the booth, but THIS year I will also be teaching a WORKSHOP!!! I am so excited!! In the previous three years I only worked in the booth--doing make and takes, demonstrations and helping customers. Now I will be teaching a class called "Footloose and Fancy Free Spray Inking!" You can go check it out by clicking HERE to go directly to the workshop page.

Please come on by the Close to My Heart Booth when you visit the expo, and sign up to take my class too! We're doing a two page layout with a bonus page that we'll use with the 12" flip flaps.  Our featured technique is spray inking--not only will we spray the background but we'll also be doing some other cool stuff with spray ink. It's going to be LOTS of fun and if you've taken any classes with me before, you know that it's true that I like to have FUN with scrapping!! 

I can't post pictures of my layout--I assume that they will post them up on the website eventually but we're using the Footloose paper pack and some coordinating stamps as well. Join me!!!

May Stamp of the Month: Friendship Bouquet

Isn't this gorgeous?? Do you like to color in your stamped images?? I see this stamp set as a perfect one for Copic lovers, waterbrush lovers, or watercolor pencil lovers! You remember the deal--buy the set outright for $17.95 any time in May, or order $50 of products to get it for just $5! And, if you order that $50 in May to get this set, you might as well add the Dotty For You Promotion for $5--it's a gorgeous pack!!
