(Consultant guide(s) coming soon! See very end of post)



 I  am super excited to share with you my HELLO PUMPKIN options! I loved creating with this line in both traditional and non-traditional ways! I created 2 separate workshops and they are both 14 pages each.  Though they have base similarities, they are DIFFERENT workshops. Each has it's own Design Space file and each has it's own Instruction and Cutguide.  Option 1 workshop contain fun and "spooky" Halloween themed layouts including my own custom images Spooky, Witches Cauldron, Scarecrow, Witches legs, FaBOOlous title and more (created with basic shapes and CTMH Cricut Cartridge images).  I added in a few Fancy Tags from our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts and a Shaker Window (Shaker Window Thin Cuts) on each workshop as well!  Option 2 workshop contains everyday  life themes including birthday, crazy fun, smile, and all occasion themed pages.  This workshop also contains custom created images including the scarecrow, Cricut Pen Title, Altered Shaker Window Title, and Custom made letters with cute little shapes embedded in them.  Option 1 Titles include:  Hey There Pumpkin, SpOOky, FaBOOlous, BOO, It's Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus, Trick or Treat, and It's Been a Scary GOOD day!  Option 2 Titles include:  Hey There Pumpkin, Snapshot, Everyday Life, HellO, It's Just a Bunch of Crazy Fun, Party Time, and Live Out Loud.

Let's look at how you can get each of these workshops and a closer look at the Supplies and individual photos!


OPTION 1:  Place a $25 order on my shopsite and receive an e-file that contains the workshop guide, instruction guide and Design Space file.  You receive my guide via email and you create your workshop yourself!  Every $25 order you place gets you the option for an additional guide so $25/1 guide, $50/2 guides, $75/3 guides and so on!  These workshops are SEPARATE so if you want BOTH workshops you would need to place the $50 order to receive them both.  PLACE ORDER HERE
OPTION 2:  Place a $50 order on my shopsite and receive an e-fil that contains the workshop guide, instruction guide, Design Space file  AND also receive all of the CRICUT cuts needed to complete the workshop in the mail from me FREE.  Once your order is placed, I will reach out to you and ask you which version you would like and will cut them and send them.  I do not create the thin cuts (if used) or do the stamping (if used) on my workshops for OPTION 2.
OPTION 3:  Order a PRE-CUT Workshop for $95 and receive the entire workshop of your choice pre-cut for you.  ORDER PRE-CUT WORKSHOP FOR $95 HERE  You may also choose to add items onto your PRE-CUT order at a discount:

I will have BOTH guides available but it will be at least 2 weeks. My goal is always to get guides out as soon as possible every time I complete a workshop.  Please be patient and know I work a full time job plus have a busy CTMH business so please know that in order to offer guides to other Consultants it does take me time!   Each  guide is different with a different DESIGN Space and slight variations in paper sizes and paper choices even though they use "essentially" the same materials.  You will need to purchase each guide as a separate purchase but if any of you want BOTH guides, I am offering the duo at $16 for both vs. $20  so you would get both DS files and both sets of instructions/cut guides.    Please designate in your PAYPAL notes Option 1 (Halloween), Option 2 (Non-Halloween), or BOTH.

I have created a facebook group:  Snips By Kelly Guide Group for all Consultants who have purchased my guides.  It is by request only as I do not want to automatically put any one in the group unless they want to be.  It will have tips, tricks, and visuals to help you with the guide/workshop so you can in turn help your customers and it can provide a platform for questions.  This is an experiment based on what I have seen others try!  Simply request if you would like to join and have access to the videos/discussion.

Thank you!!

Consultant Guide is Complete!

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)

Layout 3:  BELIEVE

Layout 4:  Hello Today


Layout 6:  REMEMBER

Layout 7:  BE YOU

Option 2: Place a Minimum $50 order on my shopsite and receive my instruction guide, cutguide, Design Space file, and all of the special CRICUT CUTS FREE.

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 **UPDATE as of 8/31/18 Cutguide is complete!  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.  See updated supply list above for exact amounts.

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.
