All Sorts Mini Album Workshop

This is a workshop I created (partially inspired by Jayma Malme) using the new Jingle Paper and the 6x6 All Sorts Mini Chipboard Album. The new twinkle brads are adorable and so cool with the matching glitter. I love how they set off the crocheted flowers. As a gift to anyone who reads my blog I would be happy to email you a copy of the instructions to make your own with a complete list of supplies used here. Just send me an email or leave a comment.
On the left page below I used Photoshop Elements to create a bracket that I used as a template to make this page. You can have it, just email me or leave a comment and I'll email it to you.

Here's a creative way to use the little chip board pieces you punch out of the holes. On the left page below, I colored them with markers and used liquid glass to make them look like brads. I

Scrapbooker's Extravagana

And the Winner is.....
Bonnie Faulk

Here is the Grand Prize she won at yesterday's Extravaganza with Heart.
Inside is the following:
1- Party Stamp set ($6.95 value)
1- 1x1 block ($3.95 value)
1- Pewter Designer Brads ($3.95 value)
1- Chipboard Flower Album
My Accent Assortment: Brads, Edge Anchors, Photo clips, Crochet flowers, and buttons

Here are some of the items that were on display.
I created this fun gift with the tube from my children's bath crayons. (yes I did wash it out first) The candy was more full until I spilled it before taking this photo. I bought the colored candy corn at Wally world. It's Apple Cider flavored, not bad, but odd as a candy. However, don't you love the colors, sorbet, brown and white?
This is what I used to show my upcoming available dates for workshops and gatherings. I remember seeing something like this at convention last year and thought it would be perfect for a booking tree. This is an acrylic clipboard I picked up for under two bucks at walmart. What you see is the paper on the backside of the board. I love this because, I'm a wedding planner and can use this pretty clipboard at my events. The back side is also pretty, and that's what everyone sees so I love using this. It's practical and useful. I used CTMH's liquid glass to adhere the paper to the board and then I used ModPodge to seal it on the back side.
Here is my display board for the Grace Workshop on the Go. You can see more photos of the cards and the accompanying layout by scrolling down a bit. I'll have to get a better photo of this card later. I cropped it as an afterthought. I love how it turned out. I'll post the work shop photos later. I'm off to clean. I'd love to know what you think about what you've seen here. Please drop a comment in the box. ;-)

Old Pattern New Spin

I've been a little under the weather so to say. So here's my first post in a little while, but now I'm on the up swing and ready to create. This is for a future workshop I'll be hosting. (Details to come). I can't take credit for the template it's from CTMH. Actually it's from the April 2007 Workshop on the Go. It was fun to create with our new line. This project uses the new Twitterpated line from Close To My Heart and the Many Thanks stamp set. This cute card box holds 12 3x3 coordinating cards. All products are CTMH.

This workshop creates 12 3x3 cards (2 of 6 designs) and this adorable card box to hold them in. Crop attendees in Oct. will be able to make this for an additional cost.
