For November’s Scrapbook class, we will be using the elegant, beautiful paper collection called “Silver & Gold"!  

 Take a look at the paper pack that is included in this Workshop Your Way kit...

“Silver & Gold” Kit contents:
1 – Silver & Gold paper packet (X7226B)
1 – Silver & Gold Complements (X7226C)
5 – cardstock sheets (3 Black, 1 Pewter, 1 White Daisy)

ANYONE is welcome to come to the classeven if you are not a part of my Hostess Club. 

  Please RSVP by Nov 8th OR contact me after this date to see if there is still room available for you to join us! 
  Come join us for our evening of CRAFTING!!  It's always a JOY to be together & this will allow you to see how EASY it is to get some scrapbooking accomplished!!

The  KITS that we use are called Workshop Your Way (WYW) kits & they come COMPLETE with everything you need to create 3 two page layouts!!

You create 3 sets of layouts ….all for just $29.95 (plus ship&tax). PLUS...you'll have lots of extra papers if you'd like to create more crafty items too! :) 

Notice in the photo below, (the 3rd layout) there are 2 different
kinds of our Pocket Plus page protectors used in the middle of the traditional 2 page layout.  These are NOT included in your kit and are OPTIONAL for this class.  

If you'd like to use the cut apart PML (picture my life) cards that are included in the Silver & Gold paper pack, you'll want to make sure you have these fabulous Pocket Plus protectors. 

You can purchase these Pocket Plus Protectors as a 10 pack (as we'll be using these Pocket Plus protectors with all of CTMH's WYW kits) OR you can purchase them by the piece from me directly…$1 each. 

>>>>After creating these layouts…you then can choose to use the rest of your supplies for the following goodies!

Option #1 - Each WYW kit ALSO creates 8-10 cards (Additional purchase of Silver & Gold” cardmaking stamp set required)  OR – maybe you’d like to create more layouts instead…it’s up to you!! 

CTMH has a FREE  online cutting guide available for you to print out or save, & create the exact creations as the CTMH has created (3 layouts & sets of cards)  OR use the paper pack however you’d like.

The WYW kit layouts are BEAUTIFUL, and pretty simple too!  
Believe it or not – there is NO STAMPING on the 3 layouts in the guide…only on the card sets!!

Option #2...I plan to create a 4th layout for this kit as well…as always when I create a 4th set of layouts…we will need to add a few extra sheets of base pages of paper….at least that’s always my goal.   

If you'd like to create this 4th layout, you can bring a long a few extra sheets of  paper (I'll tell you what colors when the RSVP's are in) OR you can always purchase them by the sheet from me too.

For all HOSTESS CLUB members...November's WYW class you will need...
***G1138 Silver & Gold Workshop Your Way kit - $27.95 & then YOUR CHOICE of ADDITIONAL item(s) to equal your $30 monthly Hostess club commitment.  

Please NOTE…**All  classes does need to have a minimum of 4 people in attendance to take place…so spread the word, and make it a GIRLS NIGHT OUT and come join me for a time of CREATING and FELLOWSHIP!
