"A mother's love is like a cup of tea....

they are always there to comfort you." 


These are the 4 pages I  designed and assembled for everyone to make at the May Workshop. Everything to make all 4 pages is provided at the workshop. Everyone gets a complete package of the Mini-Medley Accents Pacifica Collection (Collection Contents: 1 - Frame, 2 - Square Tags, 2 - Slider Tabs, 8 - Buttons, 6 - Bigger Brads, 12 - Brads, 1 yd. Ribbon). All you need to bring is your adhesive and scissors. As always, I have extra adhesive and scissors on hand for you to purchase, if needed. The cost of the workshop is $20 this includes the cost of your kit.  You can order a workshop kit, if you do not live local for $20 + shipping.

I used the Pemberley Paper Pack to make all of layouts.  The spoon was heat embossed using the VersaMark Ink Pad and Silver Embossing Powder.  The VersaMark Ink Pad lasts a loooong time!  I have had mine for several years without adding more ink to it! 


The teacups and spoon are from the "A Sip" stamp set. The flowers on this page are from the "Card Word Puzzle" stamp set.

Baroque Alphabet (includes 30 stamps 1.5" tall).  The flourishes are from the "You and Me" stamp set.....this was a limited edition stamp set.

The metal frame around the "M" is from the Mini-Medley Accents Pacifica Collection.

The teapot and teacups on this page are from the "Tea Time" stamp set.  The flowers are from the "Card Word Puzzle" stamp set.

I designed the photo mat (pictured above) to have three large pockets for tucking away journaling, adding tags or extra photos.  I put tags in the side pockets just for these photos.

I designed this page with 5 pockets.  The darker blue printed square has 1 huge pocket open at the top.  The 4 small squares that are glued onto the darker blue printed square also form pockets that are open at the top!  So lots of pockets for adding extra photos, tags, etc.
Stamp Pads used on all layouts:  Outdoor Denium, Pacifica, Indian Corn Blue, Tulip, Goldrush, Honey, and Desert Sand

I hope you have been inspired!  Be sure to leave me a comment, if you can.  Comments are always loved and appreciated!
