Frosted WOTG

Hi Gang!  

January is the perfect month to work on the Frosted WOTG!  I love love love this set!  Here's what we created with the this past Tuesday night...

inspired by Pamela Thorn
Love the stampset for this workshop on the go as it many of the images can be used in conjunction with the Artiste cartridge.  We stamped the snow flake in whisper and then stamped the six pointed star in twilight, cut it out and attached it to the snowflake.  (note, when stamping a circut image, try putting a darker piece of cardstock under it for easier alignment.)

Cherish layout Elegant Context p. 16-17
CTMH stickease is a great way to add  easy embellishment.  CTMH designs the stickease and complements and accents to coordinate wonderfully with each kit!  And when there are left overs, they are fun to add to cards as well!  Use them up!! 

Cherish layout Asymmetric p. 18-19
Happy Accident... I really liked the snowman sticker, but it looked small in the space and so I put it on a scrap of colonial white ... but then, it didn't stand out because it the background was colonial white.  Then I found a piece of slate that had the edge punched... and it was perfect... just cut it to size.

Still working on another layout... check back for more ideas!!!

Hi Hi!  what a fun layout!  

For Hostess Club, we created a movie night layout using the Artiste Cartridge... the Movie and the film strip are set at fit to page and the popcorn box is cut from the box... and we added strips to make it look like a popcorn box... We also used the ribbon roses as popcorn and sponged crem brulee on them.

Special thanks to Tami who ran the cricut and kept things humming!

Picture My Life Scrapbooking Programs

How exciting it is to announce a new program!  

You will love the quick and colorful solution for your favorite photos.  Chose from eight Picture My Life (PML) scrapbooking programs, each based on a versatile theme, bursting with 122 double sided cards in 3"x4" and 4"x6" Horizontal and vertical designs and a 12"x12" cover page to bring it all together. 

Each cardstock-weight card features journaling space one side and versatile sentiments or icons on the reverse.  The PML programs are designed to pair with approximately 100 photos to fill the 10 included Memory Protectors nicely, but feel free to mix more or fewer cards and photos  to create the album that's picture perfect for you!!

Just add photos....

Each PML scrapbooking program touches on a theme, sports, travel, love etc... but also incorporates everyday titles and designs to capture a wide variety of memorable moments.  Mix and match the cards fronts and back with photos to create the perfect groupings for your story. 

And don't be shy about mingling cards from different programs-- the designs are super flexible!!  Until your cards and photos are ready for your album, safely store them in the new My Creations journaling cards box or the medium organizer.

Pick an album... 

Give your photos and PML cards a great home inside a new My legacy Album ...with two fun patterns in D-ring or improved post bound, your completed Picture My Life album is just a hop, skip and a jump away.

See it clearly....

Included with the Picture My Life program are 10 memory protectors with various sized pockets to hold your cards, photos, and cover page.  You can include the two different card sizes in both horizontal and vertical formats on the same page! Need more?  Protector options are also available separately.
