We are all creating with the Workshops Your Way® No Worries Scrapbooking Kit. This kit is featured by Close to My Heart in June and is available until the end of the new Seasonal Expressions Ideas Book.
1 – No Worries paper packet (X7220B)
1 – No Worries Complements (X7220C)
4 – cardstock sheets (4 White Daisy)
1 – No Worries sequins (Z3322)
1 – white burlap ribbon (Z3323)
Use the materials in this kit and the online instructions found on all consultants websites (click here find the instructions if you don't have a consultant) to create three coordinating scrapbook layouts.
I made the pages first using the cutting guide and then the cards as per the instructions except for a few minor changes that made a massive difference. As I usually do, I use a variation of the cards and pages just by turning over the double-sided papers. I wasn't a huge fan of the large print palm trees, so I turned those sheets over and the pages turned out quite different. I love them. I also used my scraps plus some Kraft cardstock to make another set of 2 pages, giving me 8 pages in total. I haven't shown them here because I haven't added photos and they look a bit plain without anything on them. I really love the natural look of the timber and thatched paper and how fun and playful the blue striped paper is.
The pictures below are from the CTMH head office team and are shown in the catalogue.
I also made the cards as per the instructions (using two sides of each paper to create different samples) but didn't use the stamp set as instructed because I don't have anyone I know retiring. So my cards are waiting on titles and empressions on them. They are perfect for a masculine card or gender neutral option.
So after making 8 pages and 6 cards I still needed something I could show everyone on the blog hop.
I LOVE the wooden paper and using one of the Picture My Life cards of wood I cut the 4x6 card down to 4x5.25 to have a border on my 4.25 x 5.5 sized cards (4 1/4" × 5 1/2" White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack).
Then I added True Love Stamp set with the solid heart stamp in Whisper Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then I stamped over "This card is a PAPER HUG" with Black Memento™ Ink Pad on 12" × 12" White Daisy Cardstock offcuts.
This stamp set True Love is the Operation Smile stamp set so $7 US dollars from the sale of every set of this stamp set goes to Operation Smile - operations in third world nations on children to repair cleft lip and cleft palette issues. Its a truly amazing stamp set. So sweet and versatile.
To finish off my card I used 12" × 12" White Daisy Cardstock offcuts to cut out a thin cut heart. I adhered the thin cut hearts with Bonding Memories™ Glue Pen and the title with 3-D Foam Tape.
I will finish the 8 pages and 6 cards I've made and post them at a later stage. So please come back again soon to view my Blog and see all the things I've made with this kit!!
