The current Constant Campaign is:
Buy 9 Studio J layouts, get the 10th one free.

Below are my layouts and notes on anything I changed.  I did not order the workshop kit on this one.  I just ordered the paper pack and used my own supplies to create the layouts.  One note if you do this is that you will most likely need extra cardstock (note that all the workshops come with extra neutral cardstock).

(I’m not quite done with the first layout.  I will post when it’s finished.)

I switched up the papers on this one and I used the grey as the background for the second page and cut the striped paper at 1 1/2″ x 12″ (this also saves on paper).  I rotated the second page to fit my photos.  I used the Typeset stamp set which is retired but if you are one of my club members you most likely have this one in your stash!  Notice that I staggered the letters of Brave in my title.  This is a great option if you need to shorten your title or have a hard time lining the letters up straight.  I did use black hemp…so glad to wrap it around the page and almost have it all used up.  It was difficult to make a bow look right so I just did a knot.  I prefer waxy flax.  I used the square studs instead of the round.  Other options would be black/grey sparkles, black assortment, or slate assortment.

Product Highlight – My Acrylix Stamp Scrubber

Z1782 My Acrylix Stamp Scrubber $12.95

This new stamp cleaner provides lint-free cleaning and drying of your stamps. It has raised bristles for cleaning large stamps and rubber feet for grip. It is quite small at 2½” × 4″ but I just love this.  The small size fits well in my “go-everywhere” basket as well as on my desk.  At only $12.95, I’ve already purchased a couple, one for use at home and one for in my away-from-home bag (I try to keep the essentials in this so I can grab and go).
