My Designer Paper Bags – CTMH- EBBC crop

Two times a year, I am privileged to be a part of a WONDERFUL crop as a CTMH vendor!  This year, the April crop was held on April 25 – because Easter happened to be on the weekend when we normally have this event. 

This crop is held near Downingtown, PA – at the East Brandywine Baptist Church.  We are inside the gym AND there is Wi-Fi available too!  

The Women’s Ministry at EBBC puts together this day of crafting together – and they do a FABULOUS job!!  If you haven’t been a part of it before, you’ll definitely want to make SURE to join us at the October 2015 event! :)

The crop runs from 8am-8pm and is FILLED with fun activities, goodies, door prizes, etc throughout the entire day!  

The meals  are FABULOUS & INCLUDED with your registration fee of $45!!  You ALSO will receive a $15 credit voucher to use at one of the vendor stands as part of your registration fee!!! Wahoo!!

There are snacks, candy & drinks available throughout the day (the seasoned pretzels are the HOT items!) and there is always lots of inspiration to be shared through all the ladies that attend.

There are always FABULOUS door prizes

….and there is always a layout contest at the end of the day too!

The fun part of the day…. is that you can choose to do TWO free make and takes!!!  I host the one, and the other vendor holds the other class!

When I create this project, I keep a few things in mind…
*what is a product that I haven’t shared with this group before
*how can they use this item in their current scrapbooking project
*it needs to be created in 15-20 minutes

So…it’s always fun to challenge myself to think of & then create something in the “guidelines” that I set for myself.  J

Here is the make and take we created this spring
My Creations_Designer Bags_pocket journaling_EBBC 2015
A fun, creative pocket!!  This could be a journaling pocket, a photo pocket – or use it how ever you choose!!   We used Close To My Heart’s FABULOUS My Creations Designer Paper bags & a few kinds of Washi Tape – exclusive to CTMH. J

I always like to create a 2 page layout showcasing the make and take item.  This is the layout I created using the pocket. 

I used CTMH’s pattern (from the Chalk It Up Workshop – the 2nd layout) to create this 2 page design.  It’s AMAZING how different a layout can look when you use different papers!  Check out the other layout here

Do you see the pocket on this layout?J  What a fun “extra” to add to any of your creative projects!!

Our NEW Word Washi Tape was also used on this project.  If you haven’t already HEARD about this FUN, new Washi – head to my recent blog post where I shared info about our Washi Word tape!!  You will see the MANY words included on this roll & see a card using these words too… CLICK HERE!

Here is a list of CTMH products I used on this 2 page layout in case you’d like to create a similar layout of your own.
