Be looking for this logo in the coming months. A friend of mine that does another direct sales company, chooses a different charity every month that she donates her proceeds too. And I always LOVED that. This has been brewing in my head for a while. I am going to try to have one kit EVERY month, that the proceeds from the kit AND e-files will be donated to a charity of my choosing. Each month will be a different charity & I'll be adding page to my blog where all this information will be held. Now granted my life is sort of turned upside down right now, so I may miss a month here or there.

This month I chose the American Cancer Society for our charity. The reason being it hits so close to home for us. AND I truly have been helped by the proceeds they raise. My husband Sean has been diagnosed with Cancer stage 4 that has spread. We will be needing help from them again & I appreciate so much the work they do in HELPING cancer patients! 

If your not a crafter or don't want to make this months project, but still want to donate, here is the link.


These are 11" Letters that will stand up to create an amazing message for an cancer patient!

The kit includes, the 5 qty chipboard letters, the cricut cuts & all the paper, the embellishments & shipping to you! PLUS full color instructions printed AND a Bonus BUNDLE that includes FREE adhesive AND shipping!

All profits & proceeds from this kit will be donated to the American Cancer Society on November 1st & I will share with all of you how much we raised!

Don't forget to add your bonus bundle at check out for the FREE adhesive & shipping on the stamp sets! On a side note this NEW green glue is AMAZING for this project! I HIGHLY recommend it!

Back to School Scrappy Album

This amazing album is a whole KIT for a complete 13 grades of school!

Each Year uses Stacy Julian's Page protector combos to tell a story for the entire year. There is a spot for the class picture, large personal picture, artwork / class work pictures, places for them to journal about their year and so much more! Each year will hold 25 pictures in one small foot print. 

To complete all 12 years, you will need 2 albums AND if you order them from me you will get them in the BIG Bundle with the Vinyl Covers for FREE!

There is 5 options available but the BEST bang for your buck is the BIG BUNDLE. It has everything you need at my cost basically.

PLEASE Note: I had it on my plate to release this in September. Some of the Products are brand NEW! CTMH released the Protectors which are the MAIN process for this album at a crazy great deal.  Which if you bought all 13 years worth that's a $26 savings right there!

SO needless to say I've scrambling to get this out in under 15 days with puppies, my Birthday, Anniversary & other massive pre-cut kits with out much help. CTMH released this sale on Aug 15th & I have been working NON-STOP on this. Thankyou so much for understanding. I just don't want you to miss out on the savings for these protectors!

THE COMPLETE album is AWESOME! That being said I only have 15 PRE-CUT kits total available!

For 13 years this is an investment! I tried my hardest to make it affordable as possible. The materials for 65 protectors is not cheap though. The scrap papers I've included for FREE and all the rest of it is basically at cost if you buy the "BIG BUNDLE" OR K-12 together.

You will love the process for the instructions & I'll warn you, you'll want more of Stacy's protector combos after this. STOCK UP on them now!!! 

I've come up with an easy guide for each grade to make it an easy to cut and assemble.

My Pre-Cut Kits & sample pages use mostly retired products & it is designed to be a "Scrappy" album. Meaning I will tell you how many prints & solids you will need. Much like a "Quilt" recipe. 
I will also give you a complete shopping / supply list & what materials I used. Some of the retiring items are still available.

E-File Customers I've included a GREAT way for you to save on the GUIDES for this.
They won't be ready until Sept 6th.

PRE-ORDER your guide either ONLINE for $39 
OR place an order on my CTMH Site for $30 and you will get it FREE!

This guide includes several files for the complete 13 grades / years. 
 I normally charge $3 per layout. This is $3 per YEAR with 5 protectors per year + 6x12 Flip Flap. Its filled with tons of custom cricut cuts, and the cute journaling templates you can print & use with your customers.

It also includes an easy to process guide for using up your scraps & easy cuts per "year".

Each Year has a 6x12 Flip Flap which I call a Focus Page. K-6 have primary colors, 7-12 have jewel tones. On the inside of the Flip Flap it will have a  Journaling space for the kids. This is Kindergarten & the fonts / images change as the kids get older.

Each Album will have its own Covers in coordinating colors for the album.

Each Year will have a 6x6 focus sheet for the grade.


Order either the K-6 OR 7-12 year kits separately.

Note you will ONLY receive instructions for the years you've purchased.


This set saves some on shipping rather than shipping both kits separately.

It includes materials PRE-CUT, protectors & embellishments for all 13 grades / years.
It also includes the sheets of White CS for the photo mats.
AND the 3 stamp sets I used!

NOTE: If you'd like the actual photo mats they are $68. 

 AND Yes you may sub if you already have these. They are $14.95 stamp sets.


This biggest option between the difference is this kit includes 2 Albums with Vinyl Covers and FREE Shipping! For only $42 more!!!

This kit is truly at my cost!!! I really just want it to be a cherished album & for you to have the whole bundle how it was meant to be designed. I know its an investment BUT this one is worth it! It covers all 13 years in a small foot print!
