Do you actually USE all those supplies that you buy?????? Don't worry, you are not alone! Here's your chance to USE WHAT YOU BUY in an all new Scrapbook Club!!!!!!

Join me in a monthly scrapbook club to create 2 awesome Layouts from a club kit.
I am offering to guide you through the complete finishing of the two layouts you see below. The “BASIC” kit will give you ALL the materials to complete these two pages, PLUS enough paper to finish FOUR more layouts and THREE cards at home. If you would like the STAMPS to add the stamped images of your 7 EXTRA projects, you will need to order the “BETTER” kit. (This kit includes ALL of the “BASIC” kit AND the added stamp set(s).) If you would like to order EVERYTHING you need to create everything you see in the instruction sheet as shown (embellishments), you will need to order the “BEST” kit.
