Making Memories Scrapbook Layout or Calendar

Memories in the Making

This year’s National Stamping Month special features the Memories in the Making Cut Above® layout kit.  These products will be available in September only! 

You can create 13 single pages, or add a few additional products to turn this layout kit into a calendar!  For all my loyal crafters that prefer 2 page layouts, I have designed a 20 page (10 two-page layouts) using the Cut Above Kit, some extra cardstock and an amazing new stamp set from our new Story by Stacy line.

I will go through the kit options at the end of this post, but first let me show you the workshop kit and tell you how you can get your hands on the instructions to convert this amazing kit into 20 pages. Check it out... 

You have 2 options to get your hands on the cutting file for this amazing workshop!  Additional Supplies listed below.

1. Purchase the Making Memories Cut Above Kit (either alone or part of an order) and email me at once your order has been confirmed and I will email you the digital file.

2. Click the Buy Now button below and get this file for $10 USD

In order to complete this workshop, you will need some additional cardstock, ink and a stamp set.  I have also include the Cricut Design Space file so you can easily add the images you see on the layouts.  You will need CTMH Artistry, Flower Market and You Are Here in order to use the CDS file.  Many of these items you may already have in your stash!
