Consultant Guide Coming Soon-see end of post!

DOCUMENTED Scrapbook Workshop is complete! Documented is our CTMH featured paper line of August and I am cutting it close to the very end of this Idea Book as it has been a whirlwind summer  so if you are loving it and wanting to do it--get your supplies very, very soon!  I will be working on the Instruction Guide this next week. It is 14 Pages and I hope you like how I incorporated the tabbed journaling PML cards. I had my eye on them for a long time! I ended up loving the eggplant rich. It was a challenge on the last layout when down to just tiny scraps but I worked hard to squeak out as much as I could with every last scrap! I love the gorgeous layered flowers from our Cricut cartridges and the "Dandelion Puffs" ended up being pretty cool looking "weeds". When I was a child-if you blew on a dandelion puff and made a wish--it was said to come true! I was likely spreading weeds--but in a child's mind I was spreading wishes-what a great thought!

Let's take a closer look! (Supply List follows the photos)

CONSULTANTS:  Guide coming soon!  PRE-ORDER GUIDE 
My guides are $10 and buy 3-get the 4th free--they include a cut guide, instruction guide, DS LINK, Picture Collage Advertiser and a Consultant Release that allows you to use for personal and business use.  As always I try to do as quick of a turn around as possible with my guides but the scrap workshop is hot off the table.  I am going into a busy time-expecting a new Grandbaby anytime in the next 2 weeks, end of summer activities and lots of "day job" duties.  PLEASE be patient with me and while knowing I will be working on it every spare minute I can--and it could be as soon as August 25th, it also could be as late as September 7th.  This is not normal for me to give such a long range but I am dodging the uncertain!  If this time frame doesn't work for you, please don't purchase a guide as I already put undo pressure on myself to get things out quickly and I don't want happy scrappy to turn into stress! Thanks in Advance!  

I listed the supplies above with the "extra" paper not being exact--meaning Kraft and White--as I won't know exactly until the guide is done but will update the supplies as soon as I get an accurate count.

These are the CRICUT CARTRIDGES I USED and that you NEED TO OWN for the DS LINK to work:  these Cartridges: Artbooking, Artfully Sent, Artistry, Flower Market, Season Of Joy, Cricut Basic Shapes: Square.

I have been trying for awhile to figure out a system to say THANK YOU to all of the Consultants who have supported me this past year by purchasing my guides.  I tried to catch up with as many of you as possible at Convention with hugs, gifts of tea and jelly but it was near impossible and a blur trying to keep track of everyone! It was an exciting convention with so many names and faces.  Some of you have been with me since my very first guide a little over a year ago and have been with me through the learning process and you should have had a formal THANK YOU by now in addition to the thank you's I give in our emails back and forth.  I have kept my guides at $10 feeling like it  is a good set point even though many others charge $12 or more simply because this has been a learning year and I literally spend days upon days working on the guides and I create very large workshops.  However, I am ready now with a better tracking system to start rewarding my loyal Consultants that come back time and time again and you bless me with your support!  Thank you! Thank you!  I will now have a buy 3 get the 4th free Consultant Guide Special.  I shouldn't call it a special as I think it will just stay that  way!  It will start  from this date forward as I don't want to have a tracking nightmare going backwards!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the support, kind words, and encouragement and praise you have given me this last year.  I hope I can continue to keep you all happily scrapping for another year to come!!

If you wish to add multiple guides onto 1 order, simply use my paypal me account and add the total of the guides and state in the notes which ones they are for and which one is free.  My account is this address and then add the dollar amount on the end: dollar amount here

My Sincerest Thanks,
