ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFIQUE~O!!!!

This is my Level 1 Scrapbooking Workshop for January. You will get the 6 pages pictured, the two 6" x12" sheets of cardstock stickers pictured, and any leftover papers. You will complete the two-page layout pictured at the workshop.

Everything (ribbon, fibers, pop dots, extra cardstock, rhinestones, and use of my stamps, inks, embossing powder, etc.) you need to create this two-page layout (pictured above) are included in the workshop, except adhesive. I will have adhesive for sale the night of the workshop for those who need it.


These are the four pre-made pages you will get. All you have to do is add your pictures and stickers (pictured below) to finish these pages for quick, easy and beautiful layouts!



Two sheets of cardstock stickers....6" x 12" each sheet.


This page was created using patterned paper, colonial white cardstock, chocolate cardstock, Circle of Love stamp set, Buttoned Together stamp set, silver embossing powder, Pacifica stamp pad, Lagoon stamp pad, Pear stamp pad, Chocolate stamp pad, Sparkles from the Blue & Green Assortment, and Sassy Strands fiber.








This page was created using patterened papers, Chocolate cardstock, Colonial White cardstock, Buttoned Together stamp set, Lagoon stamp pad, cardstock feather sticker, ribbon, Sparkles from the Blue & Green Assortment, Sanding Kit, and Prisma Glitter.


This little mini-album was made to allow for adding more photos and/or journaling.




I used Chocolate cardstock to make a pleated paper ribbon.



The cost of the workshop is $20 and must be paid by Dec. 12th, so that I can order the supplies for the workshop. If you do not live local and want a kit, it is $20 plus the cost of shipping. I accept Credit Card or PayPal payments for your convenience.

HOW TO USE YOUR OLD CHRISTMAS CARDS

Do you hate to throw away all of those beautiful cards that your family and friends send you for Christmas? I have always kept mine! I started running out of space to store them, after many years. So, I made this album several years ago using 3 white paper bags. I decorated the pages with old Christmas cards from family and friends.





This shows a pocket formed from the opening of the bag. You can add photos, journaling mats and keepsakes to the three pockets in the album.








The word "JOY" is added to this frame using Gold Glitter Glue. The top of the frame was left open to add a photo. The circle and swirl were cut from Christmas cards with punches. On the page to the right, I added part of a card to form a pocket for the tags.



These Christmas tree lights were cut out of a patterned gift box. I drew them on the backside of the box, cut them out and added sequins.




The purple frame was left open at the top to add a photo.




This was torn away from an envelope that one of the cards came in and then the edges were inked with red ink,




Please leave a comment on this post, if you liked my Christmas Card Album Idea, letting me know that you liked it. Thank for looking and don't throw those cards away!!!!

SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS


I found this cupcake Christmas Tree Ornament at Wal-Mart for $2.00. I love cupcakes and my favorite color is pink! So, How could I resist? Can you believe I wanted my bedroom furniture painted this shade of pink when I was a little girl? and my mom did it!!!!! Only the love of a mother!

Something else I love is antiques, beautiful china, teapots, teacups, and cupcakes. I found this beautiful antique tray when I was on vacation this summer. The dessert plate is from one of my china sets, "Old Country Roses." The yummy cupcake my husband bought me and is was so delicious. I enjoyed every bite.

Then, there is my love for scrapbooking, stamping and paper crafting!!! Are you surprised that I made a cupcake card!!!! This card is on an older post and has all the details about what products I used, etc.

I think all artist and crafters find a way to incorporate the things they love into their designs!
