We are all creating with the Workshops Your Way® Some Kinda Wonderful Scrapbooking KitThis kit is featured by Close to My Heart in April and is available until the end of the current Seasonal Expressions Ideas Book which is TWO WEEKS FROM NOW (Yes that is panic in my font, only 2 weeks left to get these beautiful things before they're gone for good!!).
Kit contents:
4 – cardstock sheets (4 White Daisy)
1 – Black & White Dots(Z3314)
1 – White Twine (Z3216)

I decided to make a birthday card using the paper from the Some Kinda Wonderful kit and the Sweet Birthday Stamp + Thin Cuts.

I cut a strip of the Some Kinda Wonderful Scrapbooking paper to have just the circles and cut it to fit the 4 1/4" × 5 1/2" White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack card. I cut out four of the little party hats from the Sweet Birthday thin cuts on White Daisy Paper and stamped them with Black Memento™ Ink Pad
I coloured in with my shinhan markers and cut the fourth stamp to fit both the edge "faces". Then I stamped on all the different little faces from the Sweet Birthday stamp set. I stuck it all together with my new favourite adhesive Tombow® Permanent Adhesive.
I sliced a quarter inch strip of the black paper to line the bottom of the faces and stamped Birthday Wishes title from an old stamp set with Memento Ink. I think it turned out really cute!! What do you think?

Next I made some pages using the 4-3-2 pattern that I am teaching at my National Scrapbooking Day workshop coming up in May. I really like this versatile fast formula for getting pages completed so I was having a play with these papers too. Ask your consultant to explain this and give you the cutting guides. 

I used the black cardstock to mat my photos (when I get them printed) and they are cut at 4x6 and 3x4 sizes. Once I know what photos I'm sticking onto this page then I'll add my complements and accessories for titles... to complement my photos. 

Remember Workshops Your Way® Some Kinda Wonderful Scrapbooking Kit. is only available for a limited time and the seasonal expressions catalogue FINISHES THIS MONTH so make sure you get it soon, so you don't miss out! Go to my website or your consultants website and order today. 

Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest projects. I'm really interested to hear what you think about it, so I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop on our Australasian Blog Hop which is Shaunna Richards Passionate About Pages.
