September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to CTMH's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring the Autumn inspired "Fall Favorites". Whether you are coming from Lalia Harris's Blog or just starting here, you are on the right track. This blog hop is a circle - if you get lost along the way, click here to start from the beginning.

This stamp set is only $5 with a $50 order.

I hope you like my scrapbook layout below. I combined papers from both the NEW Moonlight and Flirty on a New England Ivy cardstock base. "Pick of the patch" is stamped on Cricut Art Philosophy cut shapes using CTMH's new exclusive inks mini pigment ink in saddle, then embossed with clear powder. I added accents from the new antiqued gold mini-medley, super-fun burlap ribbon, and a color-ready arbor wooden shape colored with our all-new gold metallic marker. 

Now it's time to continue on to see what Judy Burger has come up with on her blog!  Thanks for stopping by!!

My September Is All About Family

 September is a time to start over - it's our second chance of the year to start resolutions (after New Year's, of course).  To be healthier, more organized, spend quality time with the family, and most importantly, make time for ourselves - so we can be better at all of the above!!  To help my fellow scrapbook enthusiasts do something that makes themselves feel better, I'm offering the following schedule for classes, crops. and introducing a new special Savings Club!

My Scrapi classes this month will feature the timeless and stunning Avonlea paper because it is all about the family!!

Classes will be held on Thurs., September 20 at 7 p.m. Cost is $25 for three 2-page layouts.  (If you cannot make this class but are interested in doing this kit, just let me know and we can see if we can get some folks together to do an alternate or makeup class)!

Makeup Class:  I am also doing a makeup class for summer's "Footloose" kit on Wed., Sept. 12 at 9 a.m.

I offer Scrapi Crop Time on the second Friday of every month.  It's free time to come get pictures on your layouts, make additional layouts, or just get organized and have fun with both new and old friends!  The September Crop is scheduled on Fri., Oct. 14th at 5 p.m. - ?  Just bring a snack and/or wine to share and we'll order pizza if anyone is interested!  Just RSVP to me at so I save you table space!

Sometimes you just can't order every everything you want!  It's a lesson we are constantly teaching our children.  It still doesn't make it any easier especially when you are trying to make time for yourself to enjoy your hobby. If you are a scrapbooker, you not only have "wants" but lots of "needs" (and yes, we can always argue with ourselves over what is really a product "want" or "need").

My Scrapi Savings Club is designed to help you enjoy your hobby and get the supplies you need by budgeting your monthly spending.  In doing so, you'll be rewarded with additional free products! This offer is open to local, long-distance and Studio J customers.

To take advantage of the Savings Club:
  • You need to be spending a minimum of $30 a month through my Scrapi Classes, Scrapi Home Studio Shop, or website. 
  • You can spend for up to five months and then get to use hostess rewards based on the total you've spent (see page 4 and 5 of the CTMH Idea Book for reward levels). 
Special Notes:
- You can always cash out your savings club before the five month period is over if you are eager to use your rewards and/or have already reached a level you are happy with.
- You are welcome to collect outside orders from family and friends to help you reach a level (or even host a party to maximize your reward).

Last pics from Scrapi Kid's Camp

Here's one last post with pics from this summer's Scrapi Traci Kid's Camp.  Love the picture above - lots of tables to use but the girls just loved working on the floor. And if you look closely in the background, you see my daughter Haley and her friend Mouse at the Cricut. My Cricut has been getting a workout during this camp and would you believe that the only two cartridges the girls were interested in - both CTMH new Art Philosophy and Artiste. What more do you need, right!!
One of my craftiest campers came up with the project above and below using CTMH's My Creations College Cubes.  Just fabulous!!

Scrapi Kid's Projects Extraordinaire

Here are some of the projects my Scrapi Kid's campers did this week. Above and below, we used Modge Podge to adhere scrapbook paper and girls come up with their own clever designs!

One day we worked on cards as our project and I was so impressed by both the above card and the one below  with "consider yourself hugged". Loved their creativity!
Here is a CTMH's My Creations Card box project we did another day.  Again, just love seeing their own individual styles!

Artiste 3-D Projects A Hit with Scrapi Kids

Today is the last day of a week long Scrapi Traci Kid's Summer Camp that I offer every summer!  This year I had twelve girls from 2nd grade all the way up to 7th grade participating.  Each morning we put together two scrapbook layouts, then work on our own pages and finish the morning with a project.  For today's project, they each got to pick out one of the awesome 3-D Objects from the NEW Cricut Artiste Cartridge Collection.  

I have raving reviews from my Scrapi kids for this new cartridge. We spent hours putting together several of the cool new creations.  Check out my Scrapi girls below - Stephanie and Callie - with their Artiste "mailboxes".  Just love how they even (all on their own) came up with a stand for their mailboxes!  Fabulous!!!
