Rustic Home Fundamentals Long Distance Scrapbook Kit & Consultant Option

If you've been following me, you know I've been working through all the Fundamentals in our Annual Inspiration Idea Book.  I've been teaching a monthly class called Make It From Your Heart...Fundamentally.  We've been talking about why scrapbooking is important, and why YOU are the only one qualified to tell your story.  I highly recommend that you follow Stacy Julian to learn more about your story telling.

This is my Rustic Home scrapbook kit, and I love it!  There are so many stories in these 8 pages!!  I've used it for a variety of themes so that you could see that this paper goes way behind our homes.  But truly, don't our stories always start at home?



You can choose dog or cat for the next layout.  If you don't have a pet, you can use the All Together Complements in place of the pet pieces.






Workshop includes all pre-cut materials (including cardstock), as well as dies using Thin Cuts and the Cricut.  Your directions will be e-mailed to you with a cutting guide that you can use on future layouts.  The cost is $46 plus shipping.  Click the BUY NOW button below to order your kit!




Long distance kits will be shipped starting January 30th!

You will receive the directions when you place a $25 order on my website.  This allows you to teach them to your customers.  Place your order HERE.

Rose Blossom Blog Hop


Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop!  We are so glad that you joined us in the new year!  We have changed up our blog hop schedule a bit.  You will see us once a month on the 15th at 7:00 pm.  I hope that you will come to visit!

Today we are going to show you a whole bunch of new products from the Seasonal Expression 1 Idea Book.  Do you have your copy?  You can view it HERE, and when you place an order, you will get one FREE!  The artwork, the papers, and the stamps are just beautiful!  This hop is a big circle, and all you need to do is follow along.  If you get lost along the way, I have a list of all the blogs at the bottom of this post.  

So let's look at some artwork.  I created a card box using my favorite in the book, and it's called Hello Lovely, and I've used the Workshop Your Way to complete this project.  I love the roses in this paper, and I love the calming feeling of the colors!


It was quick and easy to make cards with the complements, too!



On the two bottom cards, I chose to use sentiments from the stamp set in the Flower Market collection.  Other than that, this is all from the Workshop Your Way!  You can find the directions for the card box HERE.

Here's a little close-up for you.


It's hard to tell from the photos, but I have used the clear shimmer brush on all the flowers, and it is stunning!

 I want you to head over to Marg's blog now, and I happen to know she has some amazing scrapbook layouts to show you!!

Thank you for spending your time with us!!

Stamp of the Month Team Award

During the last couple of years, I have sent Stamp of the Month cards to team members for top sales, top team building, etc.  I decided that this year I would switch things up a little.  We carry the beautiful Everyday Life Albums, and they hold 6" x 8" layouts.  I thought layouts would be a perfect way to add these awards to their planners or albums.

This award is for November sales using the January Stamp of the Month.


These are the subtle colors in the Sugar Rush paper packet.  I used the silver side of the All About Gold Fundamentals for the circle.  The hearts were made using the Hearts Thin Cuts.  I liked leaving the floral stamp without color, and I wish I could effectively show you the clear shimmer on the petals.  That really adds a pop!

The two albums available for 6" x 8" layouts are the Everyday Stripe and Sea Glass.  We also sell memory protectors in that size so that you could easily do a mini album.


Can you tell I love this month's Stamp of the Month, Adore You?  I want to show you that this stamp is for so much more than Valentine's Day!  I love our whole stamp of the month program.  Every month you can count on a beautiful stamp of the month for $5 with a $50 purchase.

Thank you so much for stopping in today!  I hope that you are already finding your 2017 blessed and happy!

Be Mine, Valentine

I so love Valentine's Day!  I love having a holiday that celebrates love and friendship!



I made this card using Sugar Rush paper, cuts from Artbooking, and the January Stamp of the Month, Adore You.  I also put a little white glitter paper behind the heart banner, and of course, I used the clear shimmer brush on the hearts.

So that you can easily recreate this card, here is the Design Space file - https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/52052428

Be Mine, Valentine!

I adore the January Stamp of the Month, Adore You.  After all this time, I can't believe that you can purchase a stamp of the month for just $5 with a $50 purchase.  That is the best deal in town!


I used the Gold Shimmer Brush on this card.  It was a fabulous complement to the paper and design of the stamp.  If you don't have one, you'll want to make sure you get one of them!!
I stamped the main image directly on the pink Sugar Rush paper.  I colored the leaves with the Leaf Green marker.  Because of the triangle pattern on the pink paper, the stamped design was left with a fun look!  I love fussy cutting, so it was fun to cut that image at the top!


Oh what fun you will have with this stamp set!  I know you will create beautiful things!!

Sugar Rush Themed Layout Workshop - Long Distance & Consultant Option

Time to let you know about my Sugar Rush Themed Layout Workshop!


There are a lot of patterns in this paper kit, and you will have a lot of paper leftover to play with.  I wanted this class layout to be gender neutral so I chose to pull out the Whisper, Pomegranate, and Sea Glass.  This Workshop Kit includes the entire Workshop Your Way!


We will also create a center pocket protector to put in between the pages.  What I love about these is that you can decorate them, like I show you in the workshop, or you can just pop photos in them!


If you'd like to come to my home to create this workshop, here is the info!
