Whether you are a scrapbooker or cardmaker, you will love having this monthly club to give for new ideas and to easily complete your pages and cards!

Here are the basics:

Each month you have the choice of three kits:

1.    Scrapbook Workshop from the Idea Book:
These are AMAZING kits designed by the art department at Close To My Heart.  They always contain a paper packet, sticker sheet, cardstock, exclusive die-cuts, embellishments, page protectors, and directions.  I increase the value by adding more things that I think fit well with the kit.
2.    Scrapbook Workshop Uniquely Designed by Brenda:
I will design a scrapbook workshop each month that cannot be found elsewhere.  They always make three two-page layouts and include a paper packet, sticker sheet, cardstock, complements and embellishments designed for the paper, and any other product I think that you will enjoy working with!  Directions will be emailed to you and posted in the Artistry in Bloom 3.0 classroom.

Postage will be extra to mail your kit(s).  I have crops every month, so you are always welcome to pick up your kit there or stop by my house for it.

Invite a friend to join you!

Oh, look at this beautiful blend of Candy Apple, Pixie, Raspberry, Ballerina, Glacier, and Lemonade.  Would ever think that these would go together so beautifully?

The Oh My Heart workshop kit includes:
  • 1 – My Acrylix® Oh My Heart Stamp Set (CC12013)
  • 1 – Oh My Heart paper Packet + Sticker Sheet (CC12010)
  • 16 – cardstock sheets (2 Ballerina, 2 Candy Apple, 1 Pixie, 11 White Daisy)

When you purchase the workshop, you download the instructions right on my website.  
Here is what the finished workshop looks like.


And here are a couple of layouts that I've made with this paper and stamp set.

For this layout, I used the pattern in the workshop but I changed the paper for a boy layout.


I found a heart background cut file on Instagram by Nicole Nowosad.  I thought it was perfect for the next page I created.


Grab your Oh My Heart soon so you can get started on those Valentine's Day!
