The Ivy Lane Workshop On the Go Cardmaking Kit is not in our club rotation so if you are in club and would like this one you should add it to one of your orders or substitute it for a different workshop.
The Ivy Lane Workshop On the Go Cardmaking Kit includes:
My Acrylix Ivy Lane Cardmaking Workshop Stamp Set (D-size) (exclusive)
2 – Ivy Lane B&T Duos Papers (from the Ivy Lane Paper Packet)
4 – Cardstock Sheets (1 Cocoa, 2 Colonial White, 1 Hollyhock)
15 – Colonial White Cards & Envelopes
1 – Sequin Dot Assortment (24 each of 4 colors) (exclusive)
1 – Gold Shimmer Trim (exclusive)
1 – Instructional Brochure
Basic Workshop on the Go supplies: All Workshops On the Go Kits use some or all basic supply items which I recommend you bring with you. These items include a paper trimmer, scissors, sponge, piercing tool/mat, My Acrylix blocks for stamping, and adhesives of your choice (which may include Liquid Glass, Glue Dots, 3-D Foam, etc.)
Additional Supplies required to complete:
Z2103 Bamboo Exclusive Inks Pad
Z2114 Cocoa Exclusive Inks Pad
Z2128 Hollyhock Exclusive Inks Pad
Z2197 Pear Exclusive Inks Pad (you may want to substitute Olive Ink, see my notes below)
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
Mine are a little different:
This kit provides supplies and instructions to create a total of 15 cards (5 each of these three designs):
The instructions call for Pear ink but I didn’t think that looked right so I changed it on this card and used Olive Ink instead. You can see the difference from card 1 (used Pear on the sentiment) and card 2 (used Olive on the flower). If I could do it again, I would use Olive on both but with all that masking already done I really didn’t want to redo it.
I altered this last design by using the B&T paper for the banner on the bottom and the Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set. Don’t be afraid to change up the cards like this to make them suit your own personal needs!

If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Maria Myers.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 (Pattern 4), Ariana Paper Packet, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Ivy Lane Paper Packet, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle Complements, Lollydoodle Assortment, Sparkle Flourishes, White Daisy Cardstock, Cotton Candy Washi Tape (retired), Flamingo Dots, Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, Corner Rounder, and 3D Foam Tape.
This layout is a great example of how you can mix and match all the paper packs and embellishments! Who would have thought that Ariana, Ivy Lane, and Lollydoodle could all be used together?!? What I really used were all the scraps left over after completing the Workshop on the Go Kits for each of these papers. I am very pleased with this layout of “scraps”! I cut the number with using Art Philosophy, layered it with Washi Tape, and trimmed the edges. I used this same technique for the polka dot border on the top. Sorry, I keep forgetting that the Cotton Candy Washi Tape is retired; I just really like it! For this layout you could substitute another Washi Tape. There are many that would coordinate.
Sheila Bennett is your next stop!

Today I’ve got another entry in the New Product Blog Hop. I’m on a roll!
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Ariana Paper Packet (zip strips), Ivy Lane Paper Packet (zip strips), Glitter Shimmer Trim and Sequin Dot Assortment (from the Ivy Lane Cardmaking Workshop Kit), Ivy Lane Assortment, Ivy Lane Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set, Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set, Cashmere Cardstock, Inks (Smokey Plum and Olive), Scallop Border Punch, and Cricut Artiste Collection.
I was inspired by this sketch which is great for using zip strips! And the Ariana and Ivy Lane strips go well together. (Zip Strips are the added part of 12×12 B&T sheets, usually with product info on one side and CTMH utilizes these by making the opposite side decorative.) The Paper Fundamentals was the perfect foundation. Again, I used leftovers from the Workshop on the Go Kits.

Supplies used: Make It from Your Heart™ Vol. 2: Pattern 10, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Paper Fundamentals, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle My Stickease, Flamingo Dots, Washi Tape (I guess what I used is retired but you could substitute others) and cardstock (Juniper and Twilight).
I started this layout with the leftover B&T papers and embellishments from the Lollydoodle WOTG Kit and then added a bunch of the many new products like the Paper Fundamentals and Pink Glitter Paper!
