Confetti Workshop on the Go

The Confetti Wishes Workshop on the Go is so much fun to put together. With the great Workshop on the Go for only $29.95 I was able to put together 2 two-page layouts and 2 birthday cards. I still have enough paper to create more cards or another layout. 

Interested in this kit and live in Spokane, join me Thursday March 19th and we will put this kit together. I cut out all Cricut cuts ahead of time. Here are the layouts I created:











Here are the cards:



Here is a picture of the kit:

Close to My Heart Shadow Box

I have had so much fun with the new Close to My Heart home decor products. This past week I decided to play with the new Shadow Box. The Shadow Box is a wooden frame with hinged back that opens for easy loading. The box holds a 12" x 12" layout and the tray is 1/2" deep and 1 1/4" deep when the frame is closed. Here is a picture of the frame when open:




I create this layout for a Shadow Box workshop on Friday February 20th. Here is the layout we will be creating to put in our frame:



The cost of the workshop is $40 and includes the shadow box and all supplies to create this one page layout.  RSVP by Thursday February 12th.
