Avonlea "Create it Quick" Kit

I hear time & time again people saying that their biggest obstacles to scrapbooking their memories are 'time' and 'ideas'.   My family schedule this year has forced me to cut back on the number of classes & workshops I host, so I wanted to come up with another way to teach & help you overcome those obstacles!  And so, my "Create it Quick" Kits were born!!

Before I introduce my first kit, just a reminder that Close to My Heart also has predesigned workshop kits for purchase that make scrapbooking faster, simpler & easier.  You can see the 13 kits currently available HERE.  Also, be sure to check out my info on the ongoing Kit of the Month Club that I run!   Each of the CTMH designed "Workshop on the Go" kits creates absolutely beautiful projects - everything from scrapbook pages, to cards, to 3D gift items.  Each project features new techniques and stamping.  I highly recommend these kits & use them in my own papercrafting all the time.    I have heard from some of you, however, that you'd like to see some kits that are even QUICKER & EASIER!    So, the kits I have designed on my own will not incorporate stamping (unless I provide a pre-stamped piece) so that you can get your photos into your albums even sooner & with less fuss!

My first "Create it Quick" Kit features the new CTMH paper pack Avonlea.   The kit includes the materials and detailed instructions to create TWO 2-page layouts (with leftover materials for additional projects).  

The layout designs for all of my kits will come from the CTMH Make it From Your Heart publications.  The first time you purchase a kit, you'll need to add the Make it From Your Heart magazine to your order as it includes your cutting diagrams and sketches.  But you'll only need to purchase a sketch book at most once per Idea Book cycle as all my kit designs during that Idea Book cycle will be from the same magazine.  (Hope that makes sense!)

The Avonlea "Create it Quick" kit will create the following two layouts:
Layout 1 base

Layout 1 with photos & embellishments
Layout 2 Base

Layout 2 with Photos & Embellishments
