***Beary Christmas Scrapbooking Class

Monday, October 30 @ 6:45 pm @ my home
RSVP by Mon, Oct 16th

Please note...DATE has CHANGED!!

For October’s Scrapbook class, we will be using the NEW paper collection called “Beary Christmas"!  While you may think the name means the paper is all bears, you are in for a BEAUTIFUL surprise! :)  Take a look at the paper pack that is included in this Workshop Your Way kit...

The bears are "hidden" on one side of the designer paper, and you'll find a bear & his friends among the cut apart PML cards too. :)  The coordinating Complements will have some of those cute bears in them too!
>>>If there is INTEREST to having a daytime workshop class…I would love to have one!   I need at LEAST 4 people (of preferably more :) )to attend, to hold a morning class.  Gather a group of friends together, and let’s get a morning (or afternoon) class scheduled on the same day!! 

“Beary Christmas” Kit contents:
1 – Beary Christmas paper packet (X7225B)

1 – Beary Christmas Complements (X7225C)

6 – cardstock sheets (2 Cranberry, 1 Fern, 3 White Daisy)

1 – Beary Christmas dots (Z4038)

1 – silver shimmer trim (Z1799)

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

  Please RSVP by Oct 16th 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 $26.95 (plus ship&tax).

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 Beary Christmas 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 ”Beary Christmas” 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...October's WYW class you will need...
***G1137 Beary Christmas Workshop Your Way kit - $26.95 & 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!
