November Scrapbooking Workshop

Join us November 25th for the Magnifique Workshop on the go.  The workshop will run from 10am - 12:30pm in Barrie. 

You have 2 choices when taking part in the workshop.  You can purchase the full paper pack for $20 (taxes and shipping included) and use my stamp set during the workshop.   Or you can purchase the full kit for $40 which gives you a full paper pack, an embellishment package and the exclusive stamp set to go with this months workshop.   This is a great value as it retails for $40 before taxes and shipping.  

If you love the paper and exclusive stamp set only available with this set but are not able to attend the workshop, you can still order the kit.  The kit will give you full cutting and assembling instructions plus instructions for 3 cards.  So now you an complete the workshops even if you are not able to join in on the fun :)

Please order your basic kit or the full kit by October 29th by e-mail

If you live further away and can't attend the workshop but would still like the kit.  Feel free to order the kit on-line through MYCTMH Site Go to the Workshops on the go tab and have the kit shipped directly to you! 

This photo shows you the paper pack you will receive,  the instructions booklet to make the featured layout, embellishment kit and the exclusive stamp.   It also shows you the 3 card designs that are in included in the instruction booklet. 

Here is a close up of the layout that CTMH made.  
And to show you how versatile these layouts are.   Here is my version of it with some slight changes to make it work for the photos I wanted to scrapbook.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I used a different title that says "Happy Birthday" and a different journal box on the right hand page.   I also used a different stamp image that wasn't floral as this layout is for my son's album. 
Since you get a full paper pack you get enough paper to complete several layouts.   For our workshop this is the second layout we will be completing.   You can also recreate this layout at home if you order the kit.

Scrapbook pages as promised :)

Okay, I finally remembered to get some photos of the recent scrapbook pages I made.   So here they are.

This Fall page was a layout I made for a swap with other CTMH consultants.   I added the pictures this week after getting these fun shots of my son playing in the leaves. 

I finally was able to scrapbook my daughter's 1st and 2nd birthday photos.  Both use Magic Moments paper and the layouts are from CTMH's new Magic book.
 So far I have one album per year for both my children - we will see how long that continues for ;)   Anyways these next 2 layouts are for the front page of each of their books.
My little man started JK this year.....oh, what a sad day that was!    He was so excited until the bus came along and the fear hit him.    This is the page I created using CTMH papers and stamps.

This layout was actually one that we created last fall in one of my workshops.   I just didn't have the pictures to put on it.  So when my daughter was jumping in the leaves last weekend I snapped tons of pictures to ensure I could get the right sizes for this layout.
This is also another layout we did in a workshop last year.  I sadly never got around to putting pictures on it.  So I finally printed off some pictures of my son last year at Halloween and completed this page, bringing me up to date with his Halloween pictures :)
My son played soccer 2 summers ago now and I also was finally able to get a layout done for that as well.
And last but not least this layout was actually done by my friend Kim for the swap we just did with other CTMH consultants.   I was thrilled to be able to use her great layout for Halloween pictures from last year.    There, I am official caught up on Halloween layouts.  Now to makes sure I scrapbook this years events shortly after Halloween before I get behind again.

Well this week was a bit of crazy one and I totally neglected this blog.....sorry.    So here is a quick run down of the cake projects this week.

If you would like to learn how to make these fun little Turkey treats visit my Cake Blog for a picture tutorial. 

Here is another cute little turkey cookie that I made up this week to send to my son's JK class for Thanksgiving.

This was a cute little cake  I made to send with my daughter's daycare for their Thanksgiving celebration.  
And this fun and interesting cake was made for a very special person ;)     Click here to read the story behind this cake.  
Wow, I was just wondering why I am so tired today.  Looking at this post, I understand why!   I have one more cake I am working on today then I need to start working on some figures for next weeks order.

I also still need to take some pictures of my recent scrapbook pages and I will get those posted for you soon.
