While I love to scrapbook and to tell my stories, I don’t think of myself as a particularly creative person. That probably sounds like an oxymoron, but it’s true. I have a hard time coming up with scrapbook designs, and may be the slowest scrapbooker ever. That’s why I love Close to My Heart’s scrapbooking kits, called Workshops on the Go. They are fast, easy, and make creating beautiful layouts a breeze. Even for someone as creatively challenged as me.
Here are just five benefits of using Workshops on the Go:
1. Everything works together
Every Workshop on the Go kit includes six sheets of patterned paper, eight sheets of cardstock, two packs of embellishments, and an instructional guide. What I love about the kits is that all of the products coordinate with each other perfectly, so all of the hard work is done for me. I don’t have to think about finding embellishments or the exact shade of cardstock to match my patterned paper.
2. Create at least 4 pages (+ more using the leftovers)
Since there are six sheets of patterned paper, I know that there is going to be enough to complete at least two 2-page layouts, with plenty of scraps left over. Normally, I follow the instructional guide, which leads to benefit #3…
3. Cutting guide
The instructional guide included in the kit always has two 2-page layouts to complete using the papers and embellishments. Close to My Heart gives the exact measurements to cut each sheet of paper. It is so easy to create a layout using this guide, like following a recipe in a cookbook. No guesswork!
4. Stamp set that is exclusive to the kit
Each kit also has a 6×6″ stamp set inside. This stamp set is exclusive to the kit, so you can only get it with the purchase of a Workshop on the Go. It also matches the theme of the papers, so you can stretch your supplies and create your own embellishments or use the stamps on cards.
5. Discounted price
The cost of all of the items included in a Workshop on the Go have a retail value of over $40.00, if purchased separately. However, when purchased together as a kit, the cost is only $29.95. Instant savings is always a bonus in my book, especially on scrapbooking supplies.
So, as you can see there are some real benefits to using Workshop on the Go scrapbooking kits. The kit I have featured today is called “Confetti Wishes” and is perfect for birthday and celebration layouts. However, CTMH has 8 other kits in multiple themes. Plus, they are updated with each annual catalog. If you would like to see all of the Workshop on the Go kits, click here.
