Library Card

Okay, I am all set for my Library class in the morning. Here is my second project we will be making. I used our Inspirations to make a simple card using the "Have A Happy Day" stamp set. Not knowing the crafting level of everyone attending, I did not want anything too confusing that might run a new scrapbooker off . Excited to see how things go tomorrow.

Library Class

Last month I signed up for three free computer classes at our local library. It is my 2015 goal to attempt to learn more on using my computer and quit relying on others to help me use it. While signing up I asked if there were any scrapbooking or card making classes available. She said the lady that held a class was no longer doing them. Great news to me. When I left that day, I had volunteered to start another class. My first class is this Tuesday and is free to the public. Whoever signs up to take the class will bring their own supplies. I will furnish the stamps, punches, die cuts, etc. This month is going to be a "spring" theme. We will be making two projects this month. One of the them will be this cute gift bag. I am forever needing a small gift bag for my Grands teachers. I used one of my most favorite retired paper collections from Close To My Heart for the bag. I love that our papers are double sided. Perfect for this type of project. Enjoy!

March "Craft & Create With Cheryl"

I loved using the Hopscotch paper collection and the ‬"Have a Happy Day" stamp set in my March class. This stamp set is one of my most favorite and needs to be in everyone's collection. These pretty papers are in the Seasonal Expressions1 and are retiring on March 31st. If you would like to order these before they are gone, please visit my website at   Along with these papers and stamps, I used the Lagoon, Sorbet, Dessert Sand, Sweet Leaf, and my current favorite ink Flaxen inks. I also used 23" of the Extra Thick Twine to tie of bow on the bottom of my card and for a little bling, I added three of the Clear Assortment Sparkles.  Included below the picture is a full list of the products and items numbers that I used to make this fun card. Enjoy!

Studio J...Day One

Have you ever been interested in using your computer to digital scrapbook? Don't have the room at home or maybe the extra money needed for scrapbooking supplies? Would you like to knock out several pages over a weekend or maybe complete a complete album in no time? I would love for you to check out Close To My Hearts free "Studio J" software program. I have never done digital scrapbooking before, but with my love of making cards, scrapbooking my pictures has gotten forgotten. I would love for you to go along with me on my journey into digital scrapbooking. Here is the first video of the series I will be posting to get you excited and wanting to get started.
