Announcing... Brenda's Workshop Your Way Hostess Club!

I am so excited about this club because it allows me the opportunity to give back to you!  I am so appreciative that you purchase my workshops and shop with me, and I want you to earn Hostess Rewards!  So let me tell you all about my Workshop Your Way Hostess Club.

  • 6 Months (September 2018 – February 2019)
  • $40 In-Home Class (pay at class)
  • $45 Virtual  (billed monthly on the 1st of the month and this price includes shipping)
  • We will use the Workshop Your Way for this Hostess Club.  However, the layouts will rarely look like the Workshop your Way.  I like to switch things up to further enhance the patterns and give you even more ideas!
  •  Kits will be pre-cut, sorted, and mailed directly to you.  They will include any Cricut cuts and specialty items I use.
  • During the six-month period, you will be a Hostess during one month.

  • You will receive one half-price item during your Hostess month.
  •  I will have a Virtual Classroom for the Workshop Your Way Hostess Club.  I want my long distance members to be a part of the fun!  At least once a month, I will do a Facebook Live video showing you how to create your layouts and explaining the changes I have made.  When you come to the in-home class, you will automatically be added to the virtual group.  
  • When you join the Workshop Your Way Hostess Club, you will receive a free package of Flip Flaps from me in your first class kit.  You will receive a Christmas gift from me in your December kit, too!
  • Finally, when you sign up for this club, you will go into a drawing for a FREE Craft Organizer!  These are BRAND NEW and will hold 12x12 paper packets, cardstock, your Versamat, and much more!
       Doesn't it sound great?!  I am so excited to work with the upcoming papers and bring some special pages into your life and memory books!

Hi There

I have been in a stamping mood the past few days, so I've been playing with our stamps.

The background of this card is a square stamp that is part of the Documented Scrapbooking stamp set.  It was pretty easy to stamp the square with Bashful, and I like that it's not perfect.  I used some of our Thin Cuts - the Scalloped Border, Hi There, Circles, and Stitched Circles.  They are so easy and look so nice on a card.  Finally, I finished it off with a strip of White Glitter Paper, white ribbon, and Documented Dots.

No matter how busy you are, take some time to play.  It's really important that we create.

Make today your best day!

Documented Scrapbooking Workshop (Consultant Guide Available)

This is the last paper I have to show you from Seasonal Expressions 2, and I love working with it.  There's something very unique about the patterns, the colors, the thought behind it.   I paired the Workshop Your Way with some Cricut cuts and designed this workshop for you!

Let's take a closer look at each layout:

This first one helps you document stories about home.

The second layout can be about any journey - whether it be life or travel.

And finally, a layout to tell the story of you or a special person in your life.

I told you, didn't I?  It's quite an eclectic mix of papers and elements, and I loved creating this!

This $35 workshop includes:
  • Documented Paper Packet (pre-cut)
  • Cardstock (pre-cut)
  • Circut Cuts and Design Space File
  • Documented Complements
  • Documented Wooden Words
  • Documented Dots
  • Photo Place Holders
  • Instructions
Kits will ship on approximately August 1st.  I know you are going to love having these pages in your memory albums!


If you are an active Consultant, you may purchase the cutting guides for $12 with a release to teach your customers!  You will receive the guide within 24 hours.
