Jingle all the way workshop

On November 29th we all got into the holiday spirit while we were working on these adorable Jingle all the way blocks! Featuring: Echo Park's "The Story of Christmas".

Gary hand cut and sanded all the sets of 7 blocks!! he is such a good man!! in total we sold over 60+ kits!! that's a lot of cutting!! and many evenings out in the wood shed shivering!

But so worth the effort!!


 We also created a beautiful twisted easel card

The beauty of this card is that instead of using the patterned paper on the front flap, I had suggested that a family photo could be used, what a great gift for the grandparents or a loved one!!

It was a very busy day, 29 ladies all ready to get festive!! learn a few new tricks and have a bunch of fun!!

Claus & Co Workshop

We are so thrilled that Vicki Boutin is coming back to our neck of the woods to teach a workshop featuring Simple Stories Claus & Co line.
If you have ever attended one of her workshops you will know that she is amazing and a very talented designer, but this album will be above and beyond any others!! Filled with 100+ pages including a planner!

The cover is gorgeous, I think there will be a lot of inky fingers after this one! stunning stencils, inks, stain, paints and more!
Vicki has added a few other companies to this album including; American Crafts, Core’dinations, My Mind’s Eye and more!!
This album is much bigger than the regular Sn@p albums, more room to add all of your memories and all the goodies that she is incorporating in this beauty. The binding is a beautiful red covered in white Christmas sentiments, such a pretty album and matches the Claus and Co paper line exactly!
We have added more spots due to the overwhelming response to this workshop, please email or call a.s.a.p. to guarantee your space! A whole Snap album done in a day! wow!!
