So, I was chit-chatting with a friend the other day who had asked me to accompany her craft shopping.  She was contemplating buying a Cricut, but I had to admit to her that I wasn’t the one to ask about the latest and greatest Cricut.  I have a Silhouette Cameo and as much as I might like to, right now I really can’t justify the expense of another digital cutter. My husband would kill me… dead.  😀

Anyway, I had sent her some links to a couple of the Meetup Groups I’m in for scrapbooking, trying to encourage her to join me, but said friend told me she wasn’t very creative.  <gasp>  Now granted, you have to have SOME creativity for scrapbooking, but now a day’s the companies make it so easy.  Close to My Heart, for example… they offer Workshops on the Go for both scrapbooking and card-making.  These kits have everything you need – patterned paper, cardstock, embellishments AND an instructional guide to create layouts if you choose to use theirs.  What I also noticed, just the other day in fact, is that on the zip strip  of each patterned paper it lists the colors of ink and cardstock that would go with the patterned paper.  It doesn’t get much simpler than that!  Love it!

So, tonight… I pulled out a Workshop on the Go and headed to Pinterest for a sketch.  Here’s the one I settled on:


And this is what I’ve come up with:



So my friend (who shall remain nameless.. ahem.. Karen)… I DO think you can do this.  In fact, I know you can!  Looking forward to you joining me!

Peace Out!  Ohhhh and check out my CTMH page!!!
