Scraptacular Memories Workshop Time!

Super excited today!  I have finally finished the layout for my first ever Scraptacular Memories Workshop!  I have been doing card workshops (now they will need a cute name as well,) for several months and I decided to go for it and begin to hold scrapbook layout workshops as well this year.

Here it is!  I wanted to keep it low stress to see how it flows, so I am doing one double page layout for starters.  :)   We will be using one of the brand new stamp sets in the new Close to My Heart Spring and Summer Idea Book-- # 1545, Wheel of Life. 

Using spinners is a hot new trend in papercrafting, so I cannot wait to do this one with you!  The Juniper color is really hard to photograph because it looks so different in various types of lighting.   Just pretend there are actual pictures in the mats on the right.  I have to find them, lol...don't worry, you can totally customize this layout to your photos and their orientation.  The photo mats will not be pre-cut.  ;)

Here are some of the details:

Waxy Flax faux stitching technique and the brand new Black Buttons!

Dimensional adhesives for the spinner to POP!

Burlap Ribbon, baby!

Ink distressed edges anyone?   Lettering is all cut by hand--JUST KIDDING!!!  It will all be pre-cut by my trusty workhorse--the E2!  These are made with the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.

Gorgeous little journal tag from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge tucked inside one of our new Paper Pouches! (I broke down and bought them, Stephanie!)
