Scrapbooking Therapy with Happy Times

Scrapbooking Therapy with Happy Times

“Scrapbooking is my therapy.” And when I say that, I really use it interchangeably  with card making.  My latest card workshop makes me happy!


Not surprising since it features the Happy Times paper kit  & the Tickled Pink stamp set & thin cuts. If you’d like to make the cards in this workshop, please contact me soon since the Happy Times paper & stamp set is only available through the end of May 2016. 1605-cc-happy-times

In fact, engaging in any creative hobby is proven to reduce anxiety. So if anyone ever doubts your coping methods, you’ve got science on your side. Check out this post from the CTMH blog, Make it From your Heart for 5 reasons scrapbooking is good for your health!


Calypso Workshops Your Way

Calypso Workshops Your Way

I love the new Seasonal Expressions!1605-se-cvr

One of my favorite new kits is Calypso, which is a fun summer themed kit with a great variety of papers that could work well with any number of photos.7d243b7a-6308-4179-a3f6-bd0a7e19a50c  The trendy  flamingos & pineapples are so fun. The Workshops Your Way™ kit comes not only with the paper pack, but also with the  die cut & sticker complements, washi tape, & sequins.68774197-5e5c-4c11-93e0-9c1815ff11cd

 Use the materials included in the WYW Calypso kit (G1109) in addition to this guide and some basic papercrafting supplies, such as a paper cutter and adhesives, to complete these layouts.


To complete the fourth Picture My Life™ layout, you will also need your choice of pocket scrapbooking Memory Protectors™.

If you’re a cardmaker, never fear! Calypso is fun for cards too:1605-se-calypso-wyw-cards
