Scrapbooking Workshop

Beautiful Friendship 
Scrapbooking Workshop

Thursday, July 19, 2018
5:30 - 9:30
meeting for local scrappers

Other items you might like to add to these layouts are available as well.  Since I'm not sure how I will be using my layouts yet, I haven't added the embellishments except  for the last one that I'll be using for my granddaughter's scrapbook.  I used the June stamp of the month, A Bushel and A Peck for those images.

You can get a better look at all the items from Beautiful Friendship paper suite on my website.

If interested in a pre-cut kit for this workshop ($30 plus shipping) or just the cutting guide ($10), please contact me.  Note, I used other colors of cardstock than those included in coordinating cardstock pack offered in the idea book.

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - A Bushel and a Peck

Close To My Heart 

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our June stamp of the month blog hop.  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun, creative ideas. Glad you could join us today.  If you are coming from Alayne's blog you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Vickie's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop.   If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set, A Bushel and a Peck, features 15 stamps and is available only through the month of June.  You can purchase this set for $17.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant.

My project is a scrapbook page using the stamp of the month along with 
papers from the Beautiful Friendship paper pack.  You might have guessed that 
this layout is earmarked for pictures of my little blondie granddaughter.

Let's take a little closer look.

The images were stamped with black Momento ink and then colored in with the following ShinHan Touch Twin markers: Marine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Barely Beige, Carmine, Light Orange, Clay, Bronze, Golden Yellow, Leaf Green, and Sap Green.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Join me as we hop on to see what creative ideas 
Vickie has in store for us on her blog.  Be sure to visit the other consultants who have joined in on this blog hop for lots of inspiration.  If for some reason, you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating consultants on Melinda's blog to get back on track.
