Workshop on the Go

What a week! Hope you all had a wonderful, blessed, Easter. Our weather was wet, cold, and dreary. The day was spent with family though, so our hearts were full of warm sunny smiles that kept the dreary weather at bay. Seeing all the spring color dresses helped me to remember that warmer weather is just around the corner.

 I’ve been busy. I created my first scrapbook pages from Close to my Heart's Workshop on the Go Jackson pack. It came in my new consultant pack. This is the first time I've used a Workshop on the Go scrapbooking kit and I can tell you, I was impressed!
2 Double Page Layouts & still lots of scraps to make cards

OMG! Where were these kits when I first started scrapbooking?  They would have given me a real jump ahead when I was first starting out.  Not that this kit is for beginners only. It helps you create a great layout. Well actually 4 or may be 6 layouts. But if you are a busy person this kit includes all the paper you’ll need, a very nice stamp set, some embellishments and directions for creating your layouts, if you want to use them.  The directions are particularly helpful if you: 
1. Are new to making scrapbook pages.

2. Have a creative block. Yes, we ALL get them on occasion.

3. Love the paper but can’t decide what direction to go with it.

4. Don’t have time to have a scrapbooking marathon.
5. Need a springboard to help you dive into a project you want to do 
All you need are your photos, adhesive, stamping ink, scissors and about an hour of your time. The hexagons and trees where cut using the Cricut Artbooking collection. I don't have that cartridge so I used Create a Critter for the trees, Freshly Picked for FarmFresh, Winter Woodland for the hexagons.


 As you can see you don't have to use these as a double layout. Both pages can stand on their own.

Next week I am going to a craft retreat with my sister, my daughter, and her mother-in-law. I am really looking forward to the getaway. I'll be posting pictures next time so come back and hear all about our crafty weekend.
TIP:  to make my paper go further I cut the center out of the cardstock I am using for a background border. This is the back of the brown cardstock I used for the border around the colonial white scrapbook page. I got enough to make a card or mat several smaller photos.
