Santa’s Workshop Memories & More (scrapbook)

Santa's Workshop Memories & More, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, StampinBJ.com, Advent CalendarStampin’ Up! has created an AMAZING Memories & More Card Pack.  Yes the intention of the card pack is for scrapbooking I took the card pack and stepped it up to a different type of scrapbook.  Sort of a cross between a journal, advent calendar and scrapbook page.  I created 31 “pages” with my pack and used the number stickers in the pack to create a page for every day in December.

Santa's Workshop Memories & More, Stampin' Up!, BJ Peters, StampinBJ.com, Advent CalendarHere are a couple of the pages I created.  I showed the project to my youngest grandson and we talked about writing on the cards his Christmas wishes, things he has done to be nice and well maybe a couple of naughty things too.  It will be fun to look back on the scrapbook calendar in future years to read his words!

I know your next question is – will there be a class packet for this project – and the answer is YES!!!!!  Get your Class Info Here – Reserve your Kit early to avoid the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Packs going on backorder or worse yet sold out!

I hope that you have enjoyed this sneak peek.  This elf has been busy creating inspiration and fall classes for you!   Details coming in the September 1 newsletter!  Be ready to reserve your spots early!
