New "Just the Basics" Kit Program

Years ago, I sold paper piecing kits and premade pages on Ebay and worked with a friend making page kits.  We often dreamed of making a larger scale business out of it at Expo's and other scrapbooking shows.  However, they remained just that...dreams.  This friend and I attend all the scrapbook shows we can and tend to spend the majority of our money on page kits.  Honestly, I love page kits!  I love that someone else has done the work and all I have to do is assemble. Typically, when I attend crops, I take my kits to work on, because I don't have to worry about taking all my embellishments, paper, etc., because the kits already have what I need.

Over the past several months, I had several ladies share with me their desires for scrapbooking projects.  In essence, they were looking for quicker layouts that did not have any stamping and projects where everything, except the assembly, was pretty much done for them.  As one customer said, "I don't want any left-over supplies.  I just want the layouts that I can put together with minimal tools and supplies and smack my photos down."

With these things in mind, I decided to start a club called "Just the Basics" where the attendees make original layouts using precut paper with only the needed embellishments.  For my regular "Beyond the Basics" Workshop-on-the-Go customers, I added the Just the Basic kits whenever they added the Complements/MyStickease to their monthly wotg orders as a way to show my appreciation for their loyalty.

So now I'm going to offer these layouts here on my blog for ordering.  You'll always be able to find the details at the top of my blog under the tab "Kit of the Month" so you don't have to scroll through multiple posts to locate the information.  You can select the layouts individually for $15 or select both layouts in a series for $25.  Each kit comes with everything you need to create the layouts (minus tools), as well as full color pictures and instructions.  Shipping is a flat $5.  Sorry, but I'm only shipping to the U.S. at this time.

The first one I'll share with you is the Huntington Layout #1, called "Simply Delightful".

The Layout #2 in the Huntington series is "A Joyous Life".

Here is the Laughing Lola Layout #1, called "That was Epic". (I used a sanding block to distress the papers.)
 Here is the Laughing Lola Layout #2, called "Follow Your Heart".

If you should get a "sold out" message, please feel free to email me and I will let you know if more will be available.  The ability to create additional "sold out" kits will depend largely on the availability of the supplies.

If you are a CTMH consultant and would like the cutting guide and instructions for any of these layouts, simply place a $10 order (per guide) on my website and I'll email you the pdf files for the project of your choice.  So if you want two project guides, place a $20 order; three project guides, $30, etc.  

Since this is my first time offering kits through my blog, I'm bound to have missed some detail.  So please feel free to leave a comment or email me with questions.

Until next time...
