Getting Ready for Christmas Early with BELIEVE

My next scrapbooking workshop is coming up in November and I thought I would share what we'll be doing.   We'll be creating this 2 page layout from the Believe Workshop on the Go.   Look how young my girls are!   Wow does time ever fly by.  

This kit INCLUDES a Believe Level 2 paper pack, Dimensional Element Stars, Olive Mini Medley Accents, Believe C-size stamp and a full color Instruction Guide.   I added a Holiday Pocket to my layout for Journaling.  Isn't it cute!  I also used the new E-size alphabet stamp Trinity with this layout.   Trinity has 3 different sizes of Alphabet.   What a great deal for $29.95!  See the stamp set HERE.

One of the FUN things we'll do is use the blending pen to color Santa and the present.  I've been using the blending pen quite often lately.   The great thing about the blending pen is you only need one!  You can use it and re-use with all you inks!   Just wipe the pen on a scrap paper until the color is gone. Then you are ready to move on to another color!   Here is a close view of the present:

When I finished the layout I still had plenty of paper left to create the optional layout that is shown on the brochure.   The cutting dimensions are found in Magic and you can find helpful hints on my website under Workshops On The Go.   Here is my other layout:

I altered the layout a little bit from the instructions.  Instead of using Holiday Red Cardstock as my base pages, I used White Daisy.  I cut three 5x7 pieces of the Holiday Red CS to mat my 4x6 pictures.  The layout called for 5x7 pictures but I was too lazy to make mine bigger.  I think it actually turned out alright!  

I used the technique trick in Magic for the star on the right page.   It's a spinning star!  This was easy to do.   I used the brad in the center of the small star to punch a hole in my page protector so that the star is attached to the OUTSIDE of the page.  It sits directly on top of the larger star and you can spin it around.  :)

Stay tuned! I'll share a few cards I made with some of my leftover paper and cardstock!
