I love the first of the month because that is the time I place my personal order for the month. I consider the supplies that I use for crops and workshops my personal order because once the class is taught those layouts go into my albums so I get to enjoy them for years to come.
This month it is even more exciting because the Seasonal Expressions II catalog is now live!
If you are coming to Crop or Workshop in April - I will have your free copy waiting for you. If you can not make it then you can add the catalog to your online order and it will be sent to you directly from CTMH.
The first of the month is also when I place any Studio - J order that I have been working on. This month is it the Seattle layouts that I did during the March Crop Night.
Studio - J has now become my "go to" to get those vacation photos scrapped and in an album before the fun of the vacation fades. I am still scrapping the "family" albums the traditional way but getting the vacation layouts done and in an album is not only a huge time saver but it is a huge load off my mind.
As I started working on this particular set of vacation photos I thought "Seattle" was going to be in an album of it's own - but I am very happy to say that because it is only 11 (2 page) layouts, I think I will have a "girls weekend" album filled with our adventures.
There are no fears about running out of photos to scrap the traditional way - I am still 5 years behind on the yearly family albums! I am currently working on 2010... And to think I thought I was going to be bored when I stopped working outside of the home.
