Introducing Beautiful Friendship 20 Card Workshop


I am so very excited to be able to release the 1st workshop from the 2018 Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog, Beautiful Friendship. This workshop is a teaching workshop, allowing you to show how to create 20 cards from a single sheet of pattern paper.

The great thing about my workshops is that you can teach it in many ways since there are 5 designs you can break it down and teach 5 cards per person, 10 cards or 20 cards.


For the 20 cards, I would recommend at least a 3 hour class.  The beginners I would suggest starting with only 5 cards.  You know your customers best, so you are the best judge on how to offer the classes.  Now let's take a closer look at each card.

CARD 1

CARD 2

CARD 3

CARD 4

CARD 5


Members of my Atlantic Scrappers Team receive the files for FREE from me to aid in their own classes.  To join my team click here.

For customers interested in this workshop, you can purchase a single set (5 cards) with emailed layout instructions from me for $15.00 which includes shipping within Canada. (outside Canada could have additional shipping charges)





For consultants who are wanting the complete files to be able to teach classes the cost is $10.00CAD




Thank you for supporting my workshops!

May Cross Canada Blog Hop - Celebrating Relationships

Welcome to our May Blog Hop featuring artwork inspired by Celebrating Relationships. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop the great part is I'm also the first stop when hopping East to West Coast. If you came from Sheena's blog then you are in the right place!


Since we are celebrating relationships I thought it was fitting to use Beautiful Friendship paper along with the coordinating Scrapbooking Stamp set.  The flower is a 2 piece stamp, base and detail.  The base is stamped in 2nd generation Smoothie Ink, and the detail stamp is in 1st generation Smoothie Ink.  The sentiment is also from the stamp set, and is stamped on Heather Cardstock on the light side, with Heather Ink.  I then fussy cut all images.  The leaves are done in Fern and New England Ivy.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Colleen Dewis.


If you get lost along the way, you can head back here to check the list of hoppers.

For my project, I pulled out the Canary Cardstock from the Cardstock package, using the lighter side of this color.  I decided that I wanted to use the dotted vellum and wasn't sure how to incorporate it, so I pulled out Volume 3 of Make It From Your Heart and found layout that I could use. I used pattern 6 and rotated the design.  I used a zipstrip for the piece between the vellum and pattern paper.  I stamped my title in Smoothie ink, for a tone on tone look, added some stamped Hibiscus flowers and doodling and all done. 

Now "Hop" on over to Brandi's blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!

I used Lemon ink for the lemons and to color the lemonade.  To color the jar of lemonade, I put a drop of reinker on one of my blocks and used my watercolor brush to paint in the jar. The straw and sentiment are stamped in Raspberry ink, and the mat is also Raspberry.  I added some doodling and black enamel dots to finish off the card.
