Workshop Full of Fun - Sophia Scrapbook Layout

This little tag with the Flowers on top, is actually a hidden journal tag! You just pull up & there is your story! I left the Title open so that you can add whatever title you need for this layout. Perfect for Spring, Mothers Day, Easter, & whatever you prefer!

You have been asking, & asking for some affordable workshops, so I finally got a little bit of time & made up this fun 2 page layout using Sophia B&T papers, & coordinating Cardstock. It is a very simple layout & I used a template out of the all new Magic Scrapbook program from Close To My Heart. One approved from CTMH, that you will be able to get the copy of the instructions when you come to the workshop!
This workshop is only $6!
The flowers I cut out with my Cricut, but everything else is Close To My Heart.
You can do this workshop at any of my Workshop Full of Fun nights. Just contact me to RSVP so that I can have the available supplies on hand ready for that night.

New Workshop Full of Fun project - The Chore Cube

They can even roll it & get a chance to take a break with you for a moment to either read to you, or you read them a book!

This side opens up to laminated doors to write your own rewards, or kid's goals to their rewards.

I don't know about you guys, but I have tried plenty of job charts & such to get my 4 boys to help around the house. Each one works for awhile, but then they get bored. So I was playing around with Close To My Heart's My Creations Cube, & thought, what will they do if I combined a whole bunch of different "clean up themes" instead of just one. So I made up this Chore Cube. Now they have multiple options all in a "game cube"! They roll the cube, & whichever the side it lands on, is the side they get to do. Some of the options are to certain jobs listed by numbers 1-6, & when this happens they roll the cube again & it is a dice cube too! Some of the chores listed have a reward, & some of them the kids will actually get to choose a reward. My boys are excited to use it & I love their enthusiasm, maybe this one will work out!
So I figured that, why not make it a workshop too, so if your interested in something different for your kids to try out, then here's your chance!
The Chore Cube workshop will be $15! Almost all the products used are Close To My Heart, & some like the laminate is from Xyron, dry embossing from Cuttlebug, Cricut, & vellum are non CTMH product. The $15 for this workshop includes your Cube, & all product to complete this cube! Contact me today to sign up for the Chore Cube workshop. Watch for the Chore Cube project or any other fun projects under my Workshop Full of Fun.

March's Blog Giveaway - 5 Lucky Items to have in my craft room, under $5

For March's Blog Giveaway, I wanted to tell you about 5 Items I am Lucky to have in my Craft Room! The BEST part about these 5 Lucky items are, they are each under $5 dollars! I am going to tell you about each one of them, & why I am Lucky to have them in my craft room, then I want you to post here & tell us about why you are Lucky to have these items, or if you don't have one, why you would be Lucky to get one! I will have 5 winners, & each of you will get randomly picked for one of these items!

Lucky Item #1 - The Sponge Z697 $1.25. One of my most used items in my craft room! I cut it into about 8 pieces, & then I can sponge away on my papercraft projects! Love this tool, & I don't know what I would do without it! And how can you complain about that price!
Lucky Item #2 - Glitz Glitter Gel Z1313 $2.75. I LOVE this Gel! I love the look of the prisma glitter, but absolutely hate working with it. I end up wearing it, all over, which just doesn't work with me, since I live in a house full of boys & glitter doesn't blend in here! When they came out with this, I was so happy! To finally have something easy to use & not messy!

Lucky Item #3 - Rub & Remove Eraser Z1207 $2.95. Have you ever glued in the wrong place, or accidentally dropped your glued paper on your project & then had that mess to deal with? This little eraser is such a wonderful tool! No more obvious mistakes from the glue, just let the glue dry, & rub away with this eraser & your project looks like it was suppose to before the big oops!

Lucky Item #4 - Sanding Kit Z1294 $3.50. I love Close To My Heart's cardstock just for the white core alone! I love to sand it & create a whole new look to my projects. This little sanding kit comes with everything you need from a fine, to rough grit, & who would have thought to make it look so pretty! The new kit looks completely different, so check it out here if you want to see what it looks like.

Lucky Item #5 - Spray Pen Z1380 $3.95. These all new Spray Pens are the best! Once you get used to using them, it is amazing what you can create with these! I love the many different techniques you can do with these, & the best part is the kit comes with 3 all for just $3.95!
So, now you have the run down of why I am Lucky to have these wonderful tools in my craft room, now it's your turn to tell us about why you are lucky to have them in yours, or would be Lucky to have them if you do not have them yet!
Don't forget to follow, if your not a follower of my blog yet, do so this month & get 2 chances to win any of these items!
On April 1st I will post my 5 Winners, & what Lucky Item they won!
Good Luck to all of you!
