Remember when we used to get together to make cards? I miss those days and haven't given up on them forever.  Until I'm available to start opening the Pretty Pieces Cafe again I'm going to offer a little something to give you the same kind of experience in the privacy of your own home.

Do you see that tab at the top? You can now choose from a variety of cards and create your own card kit. Choose as many or as few as you like. I will mail the kit or you can pick it up from me in person.

There will be cards added regularly and I'm always looking for suggestions. Here are two of my favorites from the cards being offered. Click on the tab above to see them all. Let me know what you think. AND of course go ahead and order. Everything's ready to go. All cards are first come first served.

It's soooooooo exciting to bring you another Take Out kit from the current CTMH Seasonal Expressions. These SIX layouts are created using the Dreamin' Big product line. It's fun and bright and so flexible. Each of the papers in this pack has a pattern on the back that you can choose. So just by flipping the papers around you can make something different than what you see here,

Adventure is out there. Can you see your outdoor pictures here? OR vacation? OR graduation? There's so much room on this layout for a variety of different types and sizes of photos.
Take a look at each of the layouts and let me know if you'd like to make them for your scrapbooks. Each kit is precut and ready for you to assemble using a scissors, trimmer and adhesives. There are two  ways to purchase this kit. Every option requires you to PRE-ORDER by March 12th so that I have time to order the product and cut it all up for you. Everything you need to know to pre-order comes after the photos & descriptions of these layouts. 

Isn't that the greatest title? This layout can go with ANY given day. In the case of my photos this is one day from a great vacation. For you it could be the last day of school or a birthday celebration. This layout seems limitless. My page will include a small journaling block under the vertical photo once I make the final preparations for my album.

The black background page design goes so great with my photos. BUT, you can also use the backside, which has a woodgrain pattern. I'm showing that paper below. All you have to do is turn the background piece over.

Here's another page that you can change the look of by turning the background paper over. The area you see in Juniper (green) would show up with the arrows in Goldrush (orange) that you see below.

Here's something I don't normally do BUT after making this layout with a black background I have decided that the version you receive will have white in that very same place. My pictures go with the black BUT I think the spirit of the layout "Happy Place" would generally be better with white. :)

This MIGHT be my favorite layout of all those shown. I'm still waiting for the printing of the two vertical 4x6 photos that go on the left hand page. You could also put a horizontal 5x7 in that space. This layout is a memorial to my cousin Warren who truly did love life. This layout proves my point that this paper can be used for nearly ANY subject.
SO ... What do you think? As soon as you're ready to pre-order let me know. I can't wait to cut these up for you. The last day to pre-order is March 12th. Please contact me by email with questions or to pre-order. We can work out the best way for you to pay once you place your pre-order.

The BASIC version is $40. That kit comes with EVERYTHING you see to make these layouts. The Dreamin' Big Workshop Your Way is the beginning of these layouts. There's also a significant amount of cardstock involved. PLUS you will receive a pack of 12 - 4x6 flip flaps AND six page protectors.

The BEST version is $60. This version of the kit also starts with the Dreamin' Big Workshop Your Way. For this level you will also receive the 4x6 flip flaps AND TWELVE page protectors. In addition you will receive the Dreamin' Big Coordinating Cardstock. Some of this will be cut to complete your layouts. AND you will get the Tea-rrific Stamp Of The Month (it's so cute and you'll have cardstock and a whole sheet of the floral paper left to create some wonderful cards with).

BOTH of these price points include tax and shipping PLUS they offer you a discount on everything that you're getting in your kit.

It's time to pre-order your February Take Out Kit. There are five layouts that are precut for you to assemble on your own. At the bottom of this post you will see the pricing AND be able to place your order. Make sure you pre-order by February 15th.

These pages are so beautiful. I have tried to show how there are every day layouts that you can make AND special occasion. If you have a wedding to scrapbook you could easily use all of these for the same event too.

There are mini page protectors include in these kits. Each one holds six 4x6 photos and slip right in between the two pages when you put these pages in your album. The page protectors work best with the Family layout OR Best Day. You can see their size by clicking HERE.

Here's a close up look at the embellishments from the family page. It's tricky to photograph paper creations. I wanted to show you this because that linen like paper is really great.

So, are you ready to pre-order? All you have to do is choose which kit to order. 

The Better Kit ($40) includes the Workshop Your Way, extra card stock and glitter paper to complete the layouts as shown, 2 mini page protectors and 5 full sized page protectors.

Can you believe it? I have a new Take Out kit after all this time. There's a new seasonal catalog out and I'll be making a scrapbook kit from each paper pack starting with January and ending in April. It's time to start pre-ordering this one. If you want to make this you have to contact me by January 15 so that I have time to order the supplies and cut them up to be ready for delivery on January 26th.

Without further ado, here are the FIVE layouts ...

With this kit all of the paper is cut up and ready to apply adhesive and photos. You will have a few scraps but not much. My goal is to use up as much product as possible so you don't wind up being a collector instead of a creator.

There are three ways to get the Sugar Rush scrapbook kit. 
All kits are discounted to round down to an even amount.

1.  BASIC - includes paper pack, coordinating stickers and extra card stock to complete all of the layouts. You will have to add your own washi tape and some kind of bling. This could be your opportunity to use up some supplies you already have on hand. AND it helps you stay on budget at $20.

2. BIGGER - includes the Workshop Your Way so you get everything above plus coordinating washi tape and sugar rush dots. You also receive 10 page protectors. This kit is $40.  

3. BEST - includes everything in the bigger kit plus the gold shimmer brush, the stamp of the month and four cards cut out, stamped and ready to assemble. If you order this from me and add $10 in other CTMH product you will also qualify for the FREE welcome home wreath. I bet you can guess that this is ... $60. (plus $10 of product for free wreath)

Here are the four cards for the BEST pack. 

You can contact me by sending an email to to pre-order this kit. Or you can Facebook message me at Shelly Burns Nemitz or through my business page. Here's the link to that - BUSINESS PAGE. If you're ready to get this order placed you can use the button below to pay with PayPal or a major credit card. I can't wait to make this kit for you . 

Remember to pre-order by January 15th.

URBAN Take Out Kit

I'm always excited to announce a new Take Out kit for your scrapbooking pleasure. A Take Out kit is a pre-cut scrapbook kit that you can assemble with just a scissors and adhesive. You can apply your own creativity and use additional tools or supplies but these can be put together with minimal effort.

This month I'm featuring the Urban Paper Pack, Silver Foil Tape and Enamel & Glitter Duos Blue. My goal when creating is to make something I like. If you like it too then this Take Out kit can be yours. There are two ways to purchase ... Light or Loaded. Basically that means either just the paper cut up for you and you embellish it as you wish OR the paper and full packages of the embellishments.

This month there are three layouts. There's a wide range of things you can scrapbook using the Urban papers. As you can see here, I threw in a girly element in case you think this paper is just for boys!!

The Light version of this kit is $17. The Loaded version is $28. You have until September 13th to preorder this kit. That gives me enough time to purchase the products, cut the kits and have them ready for delivery by the end of the month. 

A completed order includes letting me know you want one AND paying for it by the end of the pre-order period. There's a PayPal button below to pay by credit card OR you can mail me a check. Please contact me at with an order or any questions. 

I can't wait to make these for you to put your own photos on.
