SCT Sampler January

I was so excited to hear that Scrapbook & Cards Today was putting together a sampler subscription. I signed up as soon as I heard about it! I got my sampler on January 15.

It came packaged in a bag with this adorable hello beautiful card. On the back of the card it outlined who the products were supplied by.

This is just a sampling of what I received. There were sample sized papers, vellum, stickers, die cuts, chipboard & acrylic pieces and other embellishments. It also came with a stamp,and die set that is so cute.

There is a great assortment of goodies with plenty of product to make many things! I made these 2 cards using items from my sampler pack.

There is a lot of product in the small package! My favourite item in the pack was the gold sequins! I put that stuff on everything!

I have been trying to make things for myself. It was a sort of New Years resolution . I am working on my 12 Month Journey Of Craftiness. You can follow it on my Facebook page or on Instagram. (#12monthjourneyofcraftiness #scrapatini)

I have specific things that I want to accomplish for myself in a crafty way this year. My goal is to complete the following goals each month:

✅ 2 scrapbook layouts

✅ 4 cards

✅ try at least one new product or technique

✅ complete at least one PHD (project half done)

✅ to have more fun, contests, and interaction with my followers

It is already January 20 and since I have made my journey a priority, I have completed my monthly goal except for finishing a PHD! I am working on that PHD but I have a ways to go to complete it.

The new product that I have tried this month is coloured pencils from Prismacolor. They are amazing, very high quality colouring pencils. They have a great lay down of colour and are very smooth.

The Prismacolor pencils are available here >>>Prismacolor Pencils .

They are currently on a super sale at Blitsy for approximately 87% off! Regular price $93.66 CAD but on sale for $12.49 CAD. *Sale can end at any time so if you want them go get them now!

I have completed 2 layouts. Both are of my terrific and cute sons from our 2014 Hawaiian vacation although I didn’t theme them as vacation layouts. I used some gorgeous Wild Whisper Designs Paper (company from Calgary, Canada! Yay!) and themed them more as a self-esteem layout.

I have also completed several cards and a wine bottle tag.
