This is my longest post every - but I feel it's a very important post for all of you that are scrapbookers and for you that are wannabee scrappers - for two reasons. One, I truly feel the Memory Works monthly Express Kit is an awesome value - so far I have scrapped four completed pages and four prepped pages using the materials from the kit. I have a good start on this mini Chipboard Album for my Mom for Mothers Day and still have lots of materials left over. Scrapbookers This Is For You - the layouts are all created with the HELP of Close To My Heart Cherish - and Memory Works Express Kit "Homemade Blessings" - here is a photo of my latest project with some of my leftovers - not showing: envies, tags, labels and alpha letters.
Close up of the mini photo album I'm making for my Mom for Mother's Day. She lives in South Carolina but has a small house up here in Ohio - the mini album will be filled with family photo's from her house in Ohio. Just about everything is from the kit - except the pin, waxy flax and gold heart. Used Close To My Heart Liquid glue for gluing the pattern paper to the chipboard and adhering everything else in the album - it holds the best of any of the different types of glue.
These are four layouts I made using the Memory Works Homemade Blessings Express Kit with the help of Close To My Heart Cherish.
The nuts and blots of Scrap Booking - Cherish. Cherish has 50 two page layouts referenced in the front of the book - the sample you see below is of the reference section. So that would be 100 layouts - but - you can turn each of those a quarter turn giving you a total of 400 layouts.
The reference guide also lists how many photo's you can get on each of the two page layouts - now turn to the page of the layout you've chose: You will see exactly how many sheets of plain cardstock you need and how many sheets of pattered paper you need - and how to cut the paper with the least amount of waste. Each piece is marked so it corresponds to the layout diagram.
The Memory Works Monthly Express Club Kit is another fantastic gift to all of us scrapbookers and card makers - As you can see the Homemade Blessings Kit from April helped create some beautiful pages and a darling mini album and I still have plenty of supplies left for cards.

Again, I am sharing this with you because it has made my Scrapbooking a breeze.
