Jubilee! Workshop on the Go

Close To My Heart's Workshops on the Go really are a thing I use on the go. Every Tuesday evening, while my boys are in their 2-hour Tai Chaun Do class, I have free time to scrapbook and paper craft! This is such a win/win situation. Their classes are at our church, so I'm in the building and can easily set up and get started on a project quickly. The Workshops on the Go are the perfect take-along project!

Yesterday, I worked on the Jubilee Workshop on the Go. What a fun project! I used some pictures from last summer when my boys were learning meteorology and had set up shop to watch and analyze a strong thunderstorm that had tornado warnings.

Enjoy browsing through the details of my layouts, reading the brief descriptions below each picture:


This (above) was my first layout. I love how the Jubilee papers add character and depth to the story I wanted to tell with these pictures. The colors are perfect and the country feel of the papers goes very well with my theme.


I stamped the images on Colonial White card stock, then cut them out. Mounted in a cluster, they add charm to the layout in no time.


I did some stamping right onto the Kraft Cardstock for a rustic look.


This bonus one-page layout captured my son setting up his gear for the weather watch. 


I'll do my journaling later, but you can see my journaling strips ready to go. I use my own handwriting for journaling on most of my layouts and this one will be no exception.


The Jubilee Workshop on the Go has these pre-printed papers that make a layout quick and easy!

You can find this Workshop on the Go in our current Idea Book, along with all the accessories you'll need to make your own memories shine! 

Happy Crafting!

How Far Can You Go with a Workshop on the Go?

Recently, while busy falling in love with our new Ariana Workshop on the Go, I realized just how far one of our workshops will take me! I was thrilled to be able to complete 5 full layouts and have enough paper and embellishments left to do another! I even have enough left for a few cards! Take a look at what I created using only the Ariana Workshop on the Go:




After doing all 3 of the above layouts, I still had all this left over!

Ariana Love

Tuesday evening is turning out to be a very fun, creative time for me. My two teenage sons take Tai Chaun Do classes at our church on Tuesday nights and while they are in class, I use the time to do some scrapbooking projects. What a win/win for everyone! This week was no different and I took the Ariana Workshop on the Go with me. What a fun, girly workshop! It was perfect for some gorgeous pictures of my darling granddaughter that were taken last summer!

 Even though I haven't yet done the stamping and journaling on this layout, I wanted to show you the beauty of this workshop. I used one 5 x 7 pic and three 4 x 6 prints. I trimmed the one 4 x 6 down to 4 x 5. It's the one set an an angle.


The details in this kit are gorgeous! The tiny bows are just the touch for a girly-girl layout. And, they are self-adhesive, making it oh-so-easy to attach.


The papers really showcase the beauty of this kit and coordinate perfectly together! 


If you don't already have the Ariana Worskshop on the Go kit, order yours today!

Happy Scrappin'!
