May gardeners’ digest

A layout including stamping, sewing, stickers, Instagrams and of course washi tape.

Some stellar layouts in the gallery. Here are some projects from those taking my Collect & Create workshop (click on the layouts for more detail and info):

1. 12X12 D-Ring album – I should probably avoid choosing an item from my own collection, but I truly love this album. And after receiving many emails asking when it would finally be in stores, I couldn’t resist making it one of my picks.. Hope you all understand!

2. Pieces of Me exclusive kit – It sounds silly but although I really love everything in this kit, I mainly couldn’t resist buying it because of that exclusive stamp set. I’ve already used it and am so looking forward to digging into Maggie’s workshop.

3. October Afternoon Tidbits – These look adorable and will be perfect for both Project Life and layouts. And mini books. They are just perfect.

4. Lace washi tape – It’s a bit thinner than most of the tapes in my collection and just so happens to match Sketchbook very nicely.

5. These alphas. I realize they were on my list last month, but I have ordered even more in every single color. They really are the perfect size and come in both lower and upper case, which I can’t seem to resist.

Workshop: Through the Kaleidoscope (Amy asked me to be one of her contributors and I was happy to oblige! The class concepts and projects are all amazing!)

Cost of class: $25

Do you wish you could add more color to your scrapbooking projects? Have you ever wondered how to mix manufacturers’ products and collections with ease?
