Some before and after pics for 18 pg workshop!

Hi all- I'm very excited to host my first ever 18 page workshop (thanks to CTMH consultant Robin Garrows for the template!). We will be meeting this Saturday night to make the 9 layouts. The ladies will have all the pieces pre-cut and ready to assemble. Then they can embellish, title and put pics on any way they like.

Here are two layouts- the first picture is the basic layout and the second one is my completed layout!
Layout #1-

Finished Layout #1- I added some mattes and buttons. I also stamped and cut out some "beachy" embellishments-

Layout #2-

I am very pleased with the way these pages came together! I can't get over how versatile this paper pack is and how many different types of layouts I can make with it!

I am thinking of trying this workshop with another paper pack- any suggestions? I was thinking maybe Emporium or Bella.

Don't forget to vote for the paper pack you think I'm making Emily's dance recital layout with!!

Also- don't forget to pop over to Scrap and Share to vote for Denise's layout to win!

Have a great day-

Jean :)


  1. I was going to see if you would consider using another paper pack and do this again! Of course, I have no idea which pack to suggest since I match everything to the pictures...but I do have a baby boy, baby girl, and wedding album to make as gifts soon!

    Thanks for the plug!

  2. I really enjoy looking at your blog. I enjoy that you get to know the person who is creating the artwork as well through some of the stories you share. Thanks so much.

    I would like to present you with an award - found on my blog.

  3. I too am inspired by your blog and it is on my visit list to do at least once a day.

    I have a present on my blog for you and your inspiration. Thank you.

    Hugs for a blessed weekend. Iona
