Charlotte Workshop Your Way!

I was really excited when CTMH announced the new Workshop Your Way kits!  As a quick overview – there are currently 3 Workshops Your Way – one for each of the new Season Expressions 1 Paper Packets.  Here’s what’s different:

 

  1.  The Paper Packets include 12 sheets – 2 each of 5 patterned B&T Duos and 2 each of a cut apart sheet that work great for pocket scrapbooking, cardmaking, or additions to your traditional layouts. (You get extra cardstock just with the WYW)
  2. You get awesome embellishments (a packet of complements, puffies, washi tape or ribbon)
  3. You get instructions for 3 double page layouts and 6-9 cards, and you also have the cut apart pages for a pocket page.
  4. There is no stamping or Cricut cuts – unless of course YOU want to add those.
  5. To make the additional cards according to the directions, you’ll need to purchase additional items (or take the basic design & use what you have)
  6. Instructions are available on line and will be available for a full year – download/print the PDF file.  There’s also a YouTube video if you’re more of a visual learner!

Here’s what the Charlotte WYW looks like – These layouts came together so quickly with the easy to understand instructions & pictures.

The Celebrate sticker looks odd because I left the backing on until I add pictures

I hope you’ll try these new products – as a working mom of 2 very busy boys – the new Workshop Your Way kit is is a great value for both your money (you get 3 double page layouts, pocket scrapbook layouts and cards) and your time – the heavy thinking is all done for you – everything coordinates, the instructions are easy to follow – just add your pictures and your personal touch!

Enjoy!
