March projects featuring Stargazer!

It's a new month and I can't wait to show you
the scrapbooking pages and cards we're making
during March using the
"Stargazer" paper collection!

If you're considering joining my monthly scrapbooking
club, we'd love to have you join us now! Here's how...

It's really quite simple. Just plan to purchase and use
the featured scrapbooking kit I offer each month,
and by the end of the year, you can have as many as
96 pages done (that's enough to fill TWO full albums!)

Each monthly kit is $32 (when purchased in-person),
pre-cut for you (by me) and ready for you to use to 
assemble 4-12x12 layouts (that's 8 pages!) every month.
As an extra incentive from me, I also offer what
I call "DONE DOLLARS!" For every two-page layout you
complete (with photos and journaling!) by the end of the
following monthI will give you a credit of $1.00. If you
complete all layouts from the monthly kit, then you will
have earned a $4 credit to spend with me however
you'd like. In addition to this extra motivation to 
complete your layouts, I also reward you for your
consistent participation! When you buy any 6 of our
scrapbooking workshop kits, your 7th kit is FREE!
*There are additional shipping costs for customers who wish
to order online, and non-local customers will need to cut
their own paper (all kits include a detailed cutting guide to
make it easy!), but I do like to reward my online 
customers also with these extra perks from me.

Let's take a look at this month's pages!
If you compare my layouts to the originals designed by CTMH, you might notice some differences. This is because I frequently like to "change up" the pages to include more space for larger (mostly 4x6) photos, because that's usually my preference. Our workshop kits/pages are more versatile than you might think, and I can show you how to make them work for you, even if the photos you have to use on them are not the exact sizes and orientations shown. You are welcome to create your pages exactly like these ones below, or you can use your own creativity to change them up however you want!

Layout #1

Layout #2

Layout #3

Layout #4
These last two pages (above) are ones that I designed
using "Make It From Your Heart, Volume III"
as my inspiration (pattern #28 on page 60).
Layout #4 is a free BONUS layout, that I like to
design and add-on to your kit for you every month!

Each scrapbooking kit does need to be pre-ordered at least
one week in advance, so please RSVP no later than 3/10
if you plan to join us for this month's 
workshop and potluck "CREATE DATE" on
Saturday 3/17 (10am-4pm).
If that date doesn't work for you, I am also hosting
"create dates" in my home on Friday 3/16 (6-9pm) and
every Monday morning (9am-1pm). You also have the
option to order and pick up your kit to use at home
whenever it's most convenient for you.

Now, let's talk about Card-making!!
This month's card-making "create date" will be
Friday 3/16 (6pm-9pm)
and/or you can also plan to join us for the
Saturday workshop and potluck "create date,"
on Saturday 3/17 (10am-4pm) and/or any 
Monday morning (9am-1pm), also or instead.

All cards are $2 each (bring and use your own adhesives).
You get to choose how many of each you want to make
from my "card buffet," whether it be just a few or a lot.
Any customer who has purchased a scrapbooking
workshop kit or who makes a $30 or more purchase,
qualifies for the discounted "club member" price 
of any 4 cards for $5!

The cards this month are so bright and bold and fun!!
(and I've really been needing more cards to give/use
for kids birthdays, especially cards for little boys,
so the timing is just right!)

Birthday Time Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Birthday Time S1803

You may have just arrived here from

Today I'm sharing a standard-size card I created
using the Stargazer paper packet (#X7229B)
with the Super Girl stamp set and thin cuts (#Z4163).
If you look closely though, you'll see that I also used
the March SOTM to stamp the sentiments,
"Hooray for you!" and "It's your birthday!"
I just LOVE how easily this Stamp of the Month
partners up so perfectly with so many 
of our other fun stamps sets!

The ink pads I used include:
Black Archival, Pewter, and Sapphire.
The Shin Han markers I used are: Carmine (red),
Clay (hair), Golden Yellow, Pastel Peach (skin),
and Warm Grey 4.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my card!
Now you can continue on with the blog hop
and be inspired by more creativity using
this stamp set by visiting KATY's BLOG next!
