July Collection of the Month: Prickly Pear

I'm a little late publishing this month due to the CTMH Convention and family vacation. But here we are...

Each month, I pick one of our scrapbooking collections to feature in my workshops and blog posts. When you order from the featured collection, you get bonus items! What to play along?

The July collection is Prickly Pear which features cactus and bright cheerful colors that are great for card-making as well as scrapbook pages. You can even pair it up with Fiesta Time (C1681) stamp set and make fun party invitations.

In July, when you order the Workshop Your Way (or a total of $26.95 from pages 24 - 33 in the Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book) from me, you will get the Together (M1173) stamp set free! (Please call or email your order to me to take advantage of this offer.)

This workshop includes the following coordinating items:
- Prickly Pear Paper Pack (12 double-sided sheets of printed cardstock) 
- Prickly Pear Complements (stickers and glitter chipboard pieces)
- Prickly Pear Sequins
- Blue Burlap Ribbon (5 yards)
- 4 sheets solid cardstock (1 Poppy & 3 White)

On my resources page, you can print directions to use these products to make these three 2-page layouts.

Two sheets of paper in your workshop are filled with Picture My Life cards -- portrait on one side and landscape on the other. You can use these directly on your pages or put them in divided memory protectors or pocket plus protectors.

The instructions also include details on how to make 9 cards (3 of each design) using your left over paper!

To make the cards you will need these additional supplies: Prickly Pear Cardmaking Stamp + Thin CutsInk Pads (Emerals and Sapphire) and White Cards & Envelopes. Color with Alcohol markers or watercolor pencils for fun!

If you have questions about the bonus stamp set or any of these projects, please just let me know.
