Fall is my favorite season.  The beautiful colors, the crisp cool air, the trips to the pumpkin patch, I love it all!    This stamp is the PERFECT stamp to celebrate the upcoming fall season!

You can make this adorable card at my workshop on Friday September 14th.  This card has so many possibilities!  The card can be left as it is or you can spruce it up by adding some color to your scarecrow.  It's a super easy card to make and it will be loved by the people who receive it.  You must sign up for this workshop no later than August 31st.  The cost of the workshop will be 10 cards for $10.  Want to make more than 10?  Cards are $1.00 each so just let me know how many to prepare for you!

This workshop can also be done at your house if you're looking for a fun thing to do while getting a few of your friends together to hang out.  If you have 5 or more people sign up for the 10 for $10 option at your workshop, the hostess (you!) will get to make 10 cards for FREE!!!  The question was asked earlier "If I host a workshop do I have to sell stuff?"  My answer is NO!  There is no requirement to sell anything however once you and your friends try our fabulous products there is always the opportunity to purchase any items from the current Idea Book.  If you're not a scrapbooker/cardmaker but think this would be a fun thing to try, go ahead, try it!  There's no commitment to purchase anything and all supplies (minus adhesive) will be supplied.  If you would like, I can supply adhesive for a small additional fee.

Visit CraftedWorks on Facebook and be sure to check back in on my blog periodically for new projects :)

Happy Crafting!

4-H project

I was given the opportunity this past week to work with a sweet young girl who is entering a scrapbook into the fair for 4-H.  Her Mom brought her over with supplies and pictures in hand and she jumped right in!  We talked about the basics of scrapbooking and the project was for her to create a scrapbook herself.  I haven't seen the finished product yet but she caught on quickly while she was here so I'm sure that she did a fantastic job.  She also interviewed me to find out things like what are my favorite tools, how I got started with CTMH, and a few other fun questions.  It was fun to be able to share my scrapbooking knowledge with her and hopefully she enjoyed making her scrapbook.

Yesterday I received a message from her Mom asking if I could create a banner for her to display during the fair.  Maggie is also showing pigs at the fair.  It was a pleasure to make it for her and I hope she does well in the fair and likes her banner :)  (the banner is laminated which is why I didn't add dimension to it)
