I am excited about the new MM vacation product (travel and tropical) that just shipped out to stores this month.. here are a couple of layouts I did using it for packaging. I am usually not into vacation themed products, but these papers, stickers, ribbons and tapes are just way cute. (the pictures are of my world traveling friend, Jamie Soucy). I ran into my good friend Heather today at wally's and she told me that our local store, Scrap Coop had it in! They also have a tropical line out which is to DIE for, but I don't have any layout samples of those.
okay! so here is an update on the class kits. The perfect pocket book class kits are sold out. ( I only had a few of those left).. but I still have the lessons learned kits left if you are interested! You can read the post below or click here, if you want to purchase one! I added a few more pictures of all the product you get in the class kit in my previous post. But here is a list of what you get in the kit:
- 10 patterend papers (from these companies: Chatterbox, American Crafts, Scenic Route, Autumn Leaves and Making Memories)
- 1 sheet of black cardstock from Bazzil
- Black Alpha stickers from Scenic Route
- Ledger Chipboard alphabets from Heidi Swapp
- 8"x6" 35 page memory Book from DMD
- Acrylic Stamps from Autumn Leaves
- Flower Chipboard pieces from Making Memories
- 5 different kinds of ribbon
- 2 different kinds of tuelle
- flowers from prima
- buttons from Autumn Leaves
- 2 felt hearts
- 2 paper diolies
- gems from Autumn Leaves.
I haven't taken any more pictures of the insides of the actual book, (just the cover), but maybe I can do that this weekend and post them then. And remember, for those who live close to Idaho Falls, you can take BOTH class at the Express the Moments Expo next weekend. You can sign up here.
I got few e-mails this weekend, asking if I would just be offering the class instructions (the on-line class) for the Lessons Learned class; that people could purchase and then download. So I have decided to offer that as well! The perfect pocket book class is actually going to be an on-line class offered at Scrapbooks Etc's on-line scrapbooking show this fall (Scrap-A-Faire), so I can't offer that one, but you can take that one at Scrap-A-Faire and I will keep you updated on that when registration starts ( i think in August).
So below I have provided a link for the Lessons Learned class instructions ONLY. This will be e-mailed to you on June the 11th and will be a PDF with full step by step instructions and color pictures. It will also come with a complete supply list and any templates you may need to complete the class. The only thing that it doesn't come with is product. The cost is $9.50. Again the class instructions will be e-mailed to you on June 11th. You can purchase below:
Well tomorrow we are headed to Utah for a mini family vacation. I have a surgery follow up visit, so we thought we would take all the kids and stay at my mom's house a couple of days. Hopefully we will do some swimming and just have fun. It's always fun at Grandma's house!
RIGHT NOW i have about 12 kids at my house (6 of which are mine).. but that's how summers are and I LOVE it.. yesterday we had about 20.. Allie and her friend were making and selling snow cones and it ended up that half the neighborhood where here helping out. They had fun though. They made $12.00 (which was good for them only really selling about 8 of them). They love doing stuff like that (selling lemonade, etc). So today.. I won an auction on ebay for a cotton candy machine! I thought it would be fun for them to make and sell cotton candy this summer. Maybe even sell it at the 4th of July parade (not sure on the regulations about that)?? But they are always looking for ways to earn extra money.. so I thought it would be fun. Plus I LOVE cotton candy.. that and swedish raspberries and I can't find those anywhere! My grandma used to give us those as kids. I can only find the swedish fish and although the taste is the same, the texture is slightly different and they swedish raspberries are just SOO GOOD! hum.. sounds like I need to do some on-line investigating.. update: I just found them online and they are discontinuted! AHH! so sad...
Well hope you have a fabulous next couple of days ( I say that alot don't i? well i truly mean it). hugs to you all..
