12-Hour Paper Crafting Crop - February 2nd

It's time for another paper crafting crop!  We had so much FUN last weekend, and we hope you can make it to the February crop.  It's a GREAT time of socializing and being inspired by other paper crafters.  Whether you make cards, pages, or mixed media, this would be the right place for you!  Here are the important details:  
  • February 2nd
  • 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
  • $25 (includes table space and a table gift)
  • Best Western Plus (10580 Baltimore, Blaine - next to Super Target)
Please bring:
  • Long extension cord and power strip for your electronic machines
  • Your favorite beverage.  There is a water cooler and coffee at the hotel.   
  • Bring a snack to share during the day.
In effort to keep your costs as low as possible, I do not provide meals during crops.  I want you to have a place to spend time paper crafting with like-minded people so that you can make good progress on your projects.  Culvers is right outside the hotel doors, and there are several restaurants, as well as the Target deli within a mile.

If you haven't been to one of my crops in awhile or you have never joined us at all, I truly hope you will be able to attend!  These are wonderful events, and I have so much fun seeing what everyone is doing!  I changed locations this year, and it was been well received by all who attended last weekend!  If you have any questions, CLICK HERE to email me.  If you cannot make it and would like to join my Facebook group for crops, just let me know!

Otherwise click the link to pay for your spot.  Your spot is guaranteed once you pay the crop fee.  I look forward to seeing you!!

January Stamp of the Month

If you are a card maker, you are going to need this stamp set!!  It's called Card Captions, and it has 19 sentiments and 6 icons.

I have made a lot with this set (and I am thinking about a card kit later this month...).  Here is a 6x8 layout that I made for the Top Sellers on my team.

I love using sentiment stamps for a background.  Isn't it a fun idea?  The butterflies are from a new set, too, called Butterfly Friendship.  The tags are from a set called Custom Tags.  You would love that one, too!!

The stamp of the month is always $5 with a $50 order.  It's the BEST special we have every month!

January 2019 brings a whole new Idea Book!  You haven't seen the papers yet, so I am going to share the first one with you here today.  It's called Something Fierce, and my goal was to design a workshop that took this paper out of the box.  It was so much fun to create this for you!!

Here are the layouts I created with this paper packet!

This $40 workshop includes:
  • Something Fierce paper packet (pre-cut)
  • Something Fierce complements
  • Something Fierce Picture My Life cards
  • Pre-Cut Cardstock for Photo Mats and Cricut Cuts (Bashful, Pewter, and White)
  • Stamped Sentiments on Layout #3
  • Mink Twine (full package)
  • Silver Shimmer Trim (4 feet)
  • Silver Glitter Gems (35)
  • Printed Instructions
This workshop will start shipping on January 2nd, and I will ship throughout the month of January!

I will no longer sell cutting guides for my workshops. 
If you would like the guide, you will need to buy the entire workshop from me.

If you are on my team, you will always receive my cutting guides FREE OF CHARGE to use in your business!

Everyday Life Album

I created another Everyday Life album using one of our fun workshops that is available right now.  This is another Important Things album, but this time I followed the workshop guide and then did my own thing with the journaling.  I absolutely love the bright and bold colors in this album and thought it was perfect to record the memories from the Operation Smile mission in Bolivia.

I would love for you to get your hands on this book, and I am willing to do the cutting for you.  All you have to do is add your journaling and photos.  It's that IMPORTANT to me that you record your memories!

I have just five of these kits available, and they will ship the week after Christmas.  You can order the workshop with or without the album.  Here is the breakdown for you:

Kit without Everyday Life Album and Black & White Dots ($30.00 plus an additional $7 shipping):
  • Important Things Bundle (Pre-Cut Paper, Die-Cut Title, Hearts & Stars, 4 Flip Flaps, and 9 Memory Protectors)
  • Perfectly Imperfect Picture My Life Cards
  • Black & White Washi Tape
Kit with Everyday Life Album and Black & White Dots ($55 with FREE shipping):
  • Important Things Bundle (Pre-Cut Paper, Die-Cut Title, Hearts & Stars, 4 Flip Flaps, and 9 Memory Protectors)
  • Perfectly Imperfect Picture My Life Cards

This would be a wonderful album to have in the New Year!
