September Workshop- Magnifique

This month's class was all about "MAGIC!"  That is the name of our new how-to book.  It is full of interactive layouts that are sure to bring the oooh's and awww's from everyone who looks through your albums.  On this first layout (above) the big chocolate circle with the flower on it is attached to the outside of the sheet protector and swivels to the side to reveal the hidden journaling.

I often have more photos then will fit on a two page layout but not enough to justify a second layout.  The solution is our amazing 12 inch flip flaps.  They come in 3 sizes- 4x12, 6x12 and 8x12.  They are great for adding just a little more real estate to your layouts to add those last few photos.  They are easy to attach with the adhesive strip and are made of the same material as the sheet protectors. Do you need a lot more space? Add more flip flaps!

This last layout is of my sweet baby Allie. I have to admit that her album starts out with pictures from her birth and first day home from the hospital and then jumps to this layout where she is one! Apparently I have some catching up to do on her album.

In this layout I have a hidden picture that when you slide the left photo on the right hand layout over it reveals the hidden photo behind.  It might sound complex but with the step by step instructions and illustrations in the new Magic book it is slick and easy to assemble!

Did you miss the class but would like to create these layouts? Here is a shopping list:

All the items on this list can be purchased either by contacting me by email or phone or online anytime from my Close To My Heart website.

Straight From the Stock

Don't you feel good about using up supplies that you have been storing for way to long.  I always tell my workshop members that the great thing about how I run my workshops is that we become scrapbookers instead of scrap-collectors.  Even I have paper packets and products that I have bought with intentions to use and haven't yet.  Well as of yesterday there are 2 less level 1 kits in my drawers!  For some reason I had 2 of the level 1 kit Building Blocks.  I used both kits to finish duplicating these 4th of July layouts.  Yes I duplicate layouts so that each of my family members have their own albums. It wasn't such a crazy idea when I only had 1 child.

Level 1 kits are fast and easy to assemble and with a little bit of accessories including eyelets (Yes that is right eyelets! When was the last time you used an eyelet?) and stamping these layouts are cute, done and ready for the albums. Oh and for icing on the cake there is a little more room in my paper drawer.

You can shop online anytime for level 1 kits on my website.  Or if you would like to become a scrapbooker instead of a scrap-collector join my workshop group! Email or call me and I will share with you all the details.
