September Scrap Club Layouts

Here are the layouts for my September scrap club ladies. I loved making these using the new stamps and papers from the gorgeous Grace kit in the brand new Autumn/Winter 09 CTMH Idea Book! The stamp set I used is Childhood Portrait and I just love the little child silhouettes, they are so fun to create with! On the first layout, I used heat embossing with these stamps, inspired by the layout on page 17 of the brand new book.

Scrap Club Layouts for Autumn/Winter:
September - Grace, October - Twitterpated, November - Sweet Home, December - Jingle

**Now is a great time to sign up for one of my clubs! Here are the details on the monthly scrapbooking club - look for details on my other clubs in the days to come**

- Would you like to have a designated time, once a month for you to get caught up on your scrapbooking?
- Have you ever wanted to start scrapbooking but feel a bit overwhelmed?
- Do you feel like you are just too far behind to even get started?
- Do you currently love to scrapbook and want to expand your knowledge in techniques & layout design?
- Do you like to scrapbook but never seem to find the time and have pictures piling up?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then THIS is the class for you. Come and learn how fun, creative and quick scrapbooking can be. I will teach you several different techniques and tips and you will go home each month with 2-4 ready to go TWO-PAGE scrapbook layouts!

When: 1st Monday evening of the month. – 6:30-8:30pm

What: Come and experience HANDS-ON how easy scrapbooking really is. You’ll receive a packet of pre-cut paper and embellishments you need to complete your layouts, and have access to my stamps and ink pads. All you have to do is bring your adhesive and your photos if you’d like. You will have your choice to do the featured layout that I’ve made, or your choice of themes and colors to be sure that you are making pages you can use with your pictures. I will have those choices available to you the month before the class.
***If you need to miss a class, you can make it up!***

Cost: The class is actually free! The commitment however is to a $25 purchase of Close To My Heart products each month (before S&H). The fun part is that you are guaranteed to be the “hostess” one of the months that we meet. On that month, you will receive $25 in FREE product of YOUR CHOICE. If you’d like to complete an additional 2-page layout above the one included, you can add one additional 2-page layout for only $2.00.

Commitment: The commitment is for a full 6-months. You can join the class during any month! If, for some reason, you are unable to attend one of the classes, all you need to do is give me a call with your class order. I will save your packet and you can do it the following month or attend one of my make up classes.
Call me at (503) 393-9146 or e-mail me at to join!
