A New Day...March Layout of the month

Finally I have pics for you. Not the best pics but it is late and the lighting isn't the greatest.
I think it looks better in real life but I may be biased. My husband thinks it looks good but he
most definitely is biased. I will try to take better pics in the morning and replace these.

The first class is this Wednesday March 9th at 11:30AM at Scrapalicious.
The second class is on Sunday March 27th at 1pm.
It is the first layout I have done in a while that has no stamping on it, just a bit of inking on the die cuts. There was to be a bunch of stitching on this layout but the circle stitch template has gone AWOL. If I have time on Tuesday and I can get my hands on a replacement, I will add the stitching.
Anyone interested can book your spot by calling the store at 905-614-0085

Hope to see you there.

Totally Smashing!

Here is a quick, easy and fun way to keep some of those mementos that traditional scrapbooking does not lend itself too. It may be that we have tickets from a movie or an amusement park that we want to keep. Maybe a love note from our boyfriend (husband, child, girlfriend). Or a magazine clipping for a trip (car, jacket, sofa) that we are dreaming after. What ever it is, here is the perfect little book to keep those little treasures in.
Once you have made one, you will want to make a few and keep them on hand.
Here I have taken paper from my stash, die cut some embellishments to add as I go along, and stamped on a few pages. I will keep an envelope with my scraps in it for future embellishments.
In this 3 hour workshop you will be able to create your one-of-a-kind book from a selection of pattern papers and cardstock and then bind it all together. I will bring in tons of dies so you can create some embellishments and I will bring in a large assortment of stamps. I may even have some embellishments from my stash to share. It is suggested that you bring some of your own to use and share with ours.

This workshop is scheduled for Wednesday March 16th at noon until 3pm. There is also a 3pm workshop.
If there is interest, an evening or weekend workshop could be added to the schedule.

You will need to bring you basic tool kits. I recommend a glue stick to adhere your paper to your chipboard cover. Since you will have access to a multitude of dies, I would also suggest you bring your BigShot if you have one.
Children who are able to use a trimmer etc independently are welcome to attend but must be accompanied my an adult.
Here are some of the pics from my book. I have made the samples from papers in my stash. These papers are NOT available as I have had these hoarded for a few years now.
