Want to press the easy button on beautifully decorative scrapbooking pages? You need to check out our Workshop Your Way Kits! One of our newest kits is Chelsea Gardens. This kit includes the paper and other materials needed to create these three lovely layouts (6 pages total):

The kit includes a Chelsea Gardens paper packet (X7230B), Chelsea Gardens Complements (X7230C), additional cardstock sheets (2 Pewter, 3 White Daisy), Chelsea Gardens dots & gems (Z4155),cream ribbon (Z4154) plus printed instructions.

The directions will walk you through each step including cutting, assembling and decorating your pages. Ideas for pocket scrapbooking are also included.

As a bonus the directions also includes instructions for creating 6 cards with the left over paper and embellishments (2 of each of the 3 designs shown).

These cards use the Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking stamp + Thin Cuts set (Z4158) and a few additional supplies.

If you like the cards but are not a scrapbooker, you can print the directions from my website and just order the supplies needed for the cards. If you have questions about any of these projects or products, I'd love to help you out!

Be Patient with Yourself Card

Here's a card I made using the January Stamp of the Month, Bloom & Grow.

To achieve this look, I stamped the seed packet frame with Versamark on white paper and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder, then heating it to set.  I sponged ink over the top of this starting with Canary in the center and working in Juniper and Crystal Blue toward the outer edge. Because of the "resist" pattern created with the embossing, the design stayed white while the rest of the paper absorbed the color. Once this was completed, I stamped the sentiment with Black ink.

The paper, ribbon and dots used on this card are all from the new Chelsea Gardens collection.

As you can see from the image below, there are lots of great garden related phrases in this stamp set. Remember it is only available in January 2018. You can order for full price ($17.95) or get it discounted for just $5 when you place a $50 order.
