May 2016 - Creative License

Tricia Morris

We are so excited to take May's Creative License collection for a spin! The masculine style and color palette is a classic.



Our team had a blast at the Milwaukee Scrapbook Expo and managed to add some wonderful new members to our family. (Welcome!) I taught five one-hour workshops at the show and was able to tweak our efficient method even more. As a result, I've made some format changes to the Deluxe instruction document this month.

All paper trimming diagrams will be found on pages 2-4, and each individual piece is labeled with a layout number. We recommend sorting the pieces into seven piles or file folders during the trimming process. Then, simply distribute the trimmed pieces to the corresponding layout pairs for quick assembly. (Many of you are already doing this.) We hope you enjoy this update to the instructions and that it saves you time, as well.

Our team hopes to see you at the Great Lakes Mega Meet in Novi, MI, this weekend. If you're in the area, be sure to stop by the booth with your friends for a free make 'n take.


Catalog your summer memories with June's Boardwalk collection. With rich blues, sage and a pop of color, you'll "sea" your photos find a happy home with this kit!

The sky's the limit with the fourteen layouts created with the Deluxe kit. The silver key and car charms looped with ball chain add fun accents to the distressed-style artwork. Delve into your personal stash of other metal embellishments such as brads, rivets, and eyelets to enhance the look.



Occasionally, we include a complete project in a kit. The "On the Go Album" is a substantial 5x5" book featuring three heavy-weight CD holders linked together with folded 100# cover weight papers. Five 12x12 papers and a sheet of cutaparts will be trimmed assembly-line style and used to adorn the book. Check back on Wednesday for detailed assembly instructions. You're going to love it!

We have some fun card styles in the Greetings to Go kit with the addition of a few circular and oval shapes. If you're not a fan of cutting a shape, simply leave it on its rectangular or square base, and layer onto the card.


Looking forward to a great month!
