Frosted Workshop on the Go...with a few changes

Here are the pages from the layout in the brochure for workshop on the go

of course I made some changes, notice the extra large bling(left over from another project)

also changed out the  "wreath"  at top of banners by stamping them on colonial white paper

then i added bling on the wreaths in a circular pattern

 Then i also used a different paper in the center area than what was called for and added bitsy bling to snowflakes

"My Creations kraft 3 ring binder" by CTMH

Here is the new 3 ring binder(z1871 @ $5.95) made into a Christmas Mini Album using "Artise" cricut cartridge. So fast and easy. The cover is originally designed by Rosilyn Kelly, another talented CTMH consultant and I loved it so much I just copied it!!!!! The pages I made using the Artise Cartridge and the Frosted paper pack, felt embellishments and sparkle flourishes. It was fast and easy and an inexpensive hand made from the heart gift.
