Just wanted to remind you that the January kit is a few days later this year due to the busy holiday season. We didnt want anyone to have to worry about missing out. It will be launched on Jan 4th I believe. (I am sure Kari will correct that if I am incorrect)
Exculsive papers and Bellies again! Lots of fun stuff and oh so creative.
I will be posting my layouts and cards in the next few days. I had a lot of fun with it.
Dont forget that Embellished is closed on Tuesday for New Years and is closing early tomorrow. If you are planning on scrapbooking like me......dont forget to get to the store to stock up on essentials - adhesive and cardstock being the top of my list!
Have an awesome New Year whatever you end up doing.

Thank you to all the lovely ladies I have met this past year during classes. Everyone has made my classes so enjoyable. I look forward to seeing you guys more next year!
Safe travels to those going elsewhere. Drive safe, fly safe, be safe.
Enjoy the moments of the season. Take lots of photos, but hand your camera over and let someone else capture you too.
Happy holidays everyone! See you soon.

Are you making anything special for someone special? I made up a few Christmas ornaments, but I haven't had a chance yet to take photos of them to show you. I'm hoping to put up my tree this weekend, so I'll take a pic or two then.
Are you making cards for your family and friends? The last time I was at the store, I saw some wonderful ones made up by the other girls there. And there are always ideas on the internet or in a magazine you could follow. I picked up some of the "Figgy Pudding" (from Basic Grey) and I love it so much, I almost hated to cut it up! Beautiful paper!!
I'm afraid that I don't have any photos to show you of what I did with the latest kit... I'm making huge puppy dog eyes at Shelley, or Kari, or Mel, or Tammy... and hoping that they'll take some pics for me and show you guys just how great that kit is! I love the double sided papers, and how not all of the colours aren't the traditional green and red. Aren't you loving the Embellies??
Anyways, I suppose I should go back to work! Happy holidaze!!! :)

I just wanted to share this link to the Maya Road Creative Corner. It lists templates for all their chipboard books (so you dont have to trace from the book) and printable templates for the binder books - journal sheets, day timers, etc. Just click on the group of templates you are looking for and then the correct template.

Hopefully this will help you with last minute gift ideas using the MR products available at Embellished Memories.

It is an advanced class, but I'm thinking I'm going to rename it to "Ronni's Remix." I'm taking two of my layouts that have been displayed in the store, and I'll show you how to re-create them at home. You'll love it. I'll break down some of the steps I did, give you some hints and tricks, and best of all, these layouts use 4x6 photos! It doesn't get better than that.
So my friends, take care, and we'll see you Friday night!
Wednesday, September 19, 2007
Just to tease you a bit (ok, if you know me, I really mean A LOT!!!) hehe
OCTOBER's kit is amazing!!!! The colours are so warm and yummy :) I had so many layout ideas. I kept coming up with ideas, they just kept flowing and I actually ran out of photos to use!!! Can you believe it? I hardly have any paper left over
I had the chance to sneek a peek at Ronni's and Tammy's layouts and you will not be disappointed!
Be sure to get yours EARLY! I know they are going to fly out of the store when they are released. Watch the blog for postings of our layouts once the kit is released.

Can you believe it!! I am amazed at the response to our kits...and to disappointment to some I will have to say they are all gone. I would make up more, but too much in the kit would have to be altered to give you one. (cardstock, and some of the patterned paper)
Thank you to all....and you won't want to miss the next one!!!
More Layouts of this kit will be posted as promised to those of you who purchased...
Saturday, September 1, 2007
I just checked out all the amazing layouts at the store and am so impressed. I love how we all took the kit and have gone with our own ideas and creativity. There are 3 totally different styles for you to check out.
I am the first to admit, I am Basic Grey challenged!!! But I LOVED this kit! I was so nervous, but it worked so well with so many of my photos. We included two different feels of colour in the cardstock and both look great on their own or with eachother (one is the pink/lime green the other is the orange/tealish). Go, check out the layouts, see what we came up with and have fun with it!
Feel free to take a picture and email it to Kari at the store, or bring it in and we can take a photo of it for you. We would love to post it on the blog to show everyone!
Let us know what you think!
ps....keep your eyes peeled for my October card class. We are going to have FUN!
Dont forget now that the kids are back in school (or will be shortly), we have some awesome classes for you to partake in too! Check out the website for the calendars and the samples in store.
