Spring Is in the Air in May

Each month I create a different type of project for my monthly Cricut Art Philosophy class. I was so inspired by this video that I just had to duplicate one of the projects for next month's class. Take a look.

So can you guess which project I liked the most?

That cute little box with the sentiment inside. Isn't it adorable?
And here's a picture with the box opened.

Join me as we create this adorable box and card on Saturday, May 5 at 9am and Saturday, May 12 at 10am. Here are 2 ways you can take the class and what it costs:

  • $10 if you own a Cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge bundle - Bring your Cricut and your Art Philosophy cartridge and we'll cut everything together
  • $20 if you don't own a Cricut or the Art Philosophy Cartridge bundle - I will cut all of your paper ahead of time and you can show up 30 minutes late.

So let's "pop" in to spring at my May Cricut Art Philosophy class.

Florentine is now one of my favorites

So I just finished making the pages for next month's Scrapbooking Clubs using the Florentine paper and it is now one of my favorites. I just love these papers. I can't really explain why, but they really highlighted my photos well. I think it's the blues & oranges which have always been a great color combination, but not something I would normally be drawn to. I just love the stripes in this packet too.

I added the Stickease to my project because they were too cool looking. I love the almost tie-dyed look of them. There are also so many sentiments in the set that it makes for really easy titles and journaling.
So if you too want to join us in making these 2 layouts you can. All workshops are held in my Studio above our detached garage at my home in Amelia, VA.

Next month's Scrapbook Clubs will be held:
Sunday, May 6 from 2-5pm
Thursday, May 10 from 6:30-9:30pm
Saturday, May 12 from 2-5pm

Cost of the workshop varies because you get to purchase what you want. Starts at $16 and includes plenty of paper to make these pages and many more. All other embellishments and tools are optional.

Email me today if you want to join us.

12 Cards and a Card Box Workshop

Don't miss my latest workshop. Wouldn't it be great to have a stash of cards and a card box to keep them in? This would also make a great gift for a friend or for Mother's Day.
We will make 12 cards total using 4 new A-size stamp sets. The "Thanks" and "Seashell" cards come together so quickly using the Thanks and Quick Cards - Shell stamp sets. We will also decorate one of the My Creations Card Boxes for you to keep your cards in.
Cost of the workshop is just $25 and includes all of the paper, embellishments, card box, stamps and inks to create your cards.
