What's NEW??

Today, I put LOTS of updates on the site!  Take a look at the tabs for "What's New", "Winter Crop 2014" and "Classes and Workshops".  I'm also updating the Stamp of the Month set (even though it doesn't officially start until the 1st.)  I hope you enjoy reading and that you find something to participate in!

We have an official date for the January crop and I've opened up registrations.  And, there are lots of classes and workshops, including a new Layout class with the Sparkle & Shine paper and the ** HOT ** Flip Flaps! 

I'm also trying something new with a special Tags, Favors and Gift Cards class that allows you to choose which projects YOU want to make.  For example, if you only need favors, then you make favors - each project has a container with all the products needed to create that project, including a sample.  You take the container to your seat and complete the projects that you need!  Some people might make one of each project - they want to learn the techniques or make samples - but others might need 3 gift cards, so they make those.

Don't forget to check out the "What's New" tab too.  Throughout the year, I sort of secretly offer some of these opportunities, but at the holidays, I try to SHOUT THEM OUT LOUD!  LOL  Take advantage of some of these great options!!

Starting tomorrow, the Stamp of the Month stamp set will be:  Illuminate.  This is a great set for both card makers and scrapbookers!  The sentiments are great for cards and the lights will work great for making collages on a scrapbook layout.  Best part?  You can get it for $5 with a $50 purchase!

I hope that your crafting is going well and if I can help, please just let me know!!  Kath*

October - Fall is here!

It's October.  Where has the year gone?  It's back to thinking about Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas, among other holidays.

If you are looking for some crop time, please join us on Oct. 19th at Good Hope Lutheran in Garden City.  We will be cropping all day ( 9 am - 9 pm) for $35.  There will be lots of fun, surprises and prizes too!  I've even added a class that is totally HOT right now... Flip Flaps!  It is an additional $6, but you get that in product for you to use in your own albums.  Email me at scrapbookaddict @ att . net (without the spaces) for more information and a sign up form.

If you are looking for gifts - I've got that too!  I can help you earn your products for free or help get a wish list to a loved one.  I'll even wrap the gifts, if you let me know.

There are lots of classes going on.  I have a Halloween layout and Scandinavian Christmas layout projects, as well as a Halloween mini album!  Here's the Scandinavian Christmas layout.  Each class offers a Basic layout (the first photo) for $10 and includes the paper and Cricut cuts needed to create the layout.  The 2nd photo is the "Bling" version and it includes additional products.  I have a list of items that I used - for example, this layout used the Scandinavian Wishes Stamp set, which is our Stamp of the Month and a packet of Ruby Mini-Medley Accents.  You could add these items as an additional order!  Make sure to order your additional products at least 7-10 days ahead of the class.

Photo: One more layout... (Been busy tonight!!)  This is a Scandinavian layout using the stamp of the month set.  Again, basic and Bling versions are available.  This class is at Hobby Lobby in Canton on Oct. 15.
Basic Version - $10

Sweet Life! July Stamp of the Month

Are you living the Sweet Life?  Or just dreaming of it?  Well, this stamp set is absolutely wonderful for cards, scrapbook layouts and home decor items!

Here's a photo of what Corporate made with the set...

The set is like it was hand drawn!  Here's a photo of the actual stamps...

This is my take on the set...

I lightly colored the branch and buds with ink and my Blending Pen (3174, $3.95) and stamped the apple on a piece of Cranberry Cardstock (1272, $14.50) and did my favorite fussy cutting around it.  It is dimensional using 3D Foam Tape (Z1151, $5.95).  Other products used Black Cardstock (1386, $14.50), White Daisy Cardstock (1385, $9.50)

We also used this stamp set for our July Card Workshop...  On the first card, I edged all four squares with Black Ink to make it look dimensional.  You could also add Foam Tape on all (or just one square, for more focus.)  You could color all the squares - See my Facebook page for more samples (made by Card Workshop participants.)

The ink on all 3 cards is Black (Z2105, $5.25) (although you could use ANY color!)

Want more?  There is a group of Consultants who do a SOTM Blog Hop each month.  Here's a link to the beginning of the Hop.  There are quite a few Consultants that participate!  Take a look at what can be done with this set...  START BLOG HOP HERE

The best part?  You can buy the set for $17.95 OR get it for only $5 with a $50 purchase.

I'm going to be posting some great ideas for Summer on my Facebook page, all throughout June, July and August.  Make sure to check it out at

February Update

Hi again!  Do you have a lot of scrapbooking to catch up on?  If you said yes, that's pretty typical!  Now is the time to get caught up.  I'd like to help you do that!

If you need product, as of today, we have a NEW Close To My Heart Idea Book.  Gorgeous papers, new ribbons and material (something new for us!) and of course, lots of FUN new stamps.  You can take a look at the Idea Book online - see the link to the right - - - - >
Or I can deliver an Idea Book to you locally or mail it to you for the cost of shipping.

I am also offering a personal special.  Each person who places a $40 order a chance to get $40 more in product for FREE!  You can order through me or online.  You can also host a party - traditional in-home, catalog or online - and earn another chance.  (Each party must have qualifying sales of $150 or more - which would cause you to earn MORE free product.)  Contact me to participate!

If you need instruction, I offer card workshops on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.  You make 5 or more cards that you can take home.  You can use the techniques to make more or on your scrapbook layouts!  If you have been "bored" with your scrapbooking, this workshop can be just the thing to liven everything up.

If you are a busy person and can't seem to find the time to scrapbook, this is the month for you.  We are offering our Studio J layouts for only $5 for a 2 page layout!  This is VERY quick, it's all done online and there is NO cost until you are ready to purchase.  You can COMPLETE an album in a couple of hours for around $25 - no joke!  Start at and click on Studio J.  Try it today for FREE.

And, if you are looking to earn some extra income, I can help with that too.  I have a growing team that is earning income!  We have a SUPER new kit that includes the Chantily Workshop on the Go and several stamp sets, ink, instruction/idea books and so much more.  It's only $49 to start!  We have bonuses you can earn with your first sales too.  There is NO commitment to sell - although, I will encourage you and help you learn how.  ;)
