PML Banquet ... Yummy

Last week I held a Banquet in the Pretty Pieces Café. It was DELICIOUS!! We were a group of very messy diners, but the final results were soooo worth the mess.

Look at these adorable cards. This is the work of one of my "Freqent Diners". All of the people who attended this event walked away with really amazing cards. Everyone received a dozen Picture My Life cards from the Babycakes pack and got busy. I was very proud of their work. If only I had taken more pictures to show you. 

BUT I was a quite busy keeping track of all of the tools and embellishments.
Check out the mess below ... I made it, NOT the card artists. 

If you haven't checked out Close To My Heart's Picture My Life product yet ... DO IT NOW!! AND if you missed this banquet, don't worry. I have a few more events like this up my sleeve!

Café Hours

OK ... some of you have been waiting for this and there's finally an answer. There are TWO days in August when you can come to make Al A Carte cards and layouts.

Here are the upcoming dates ...
... Thursday, August 21st (1-5pm)
... Friday, August 29th (10am - 3pm)

Mark your calendar and come. I'd love to know you're planning on it but you actually don't even have to tell me. This is an open house style event. You come and go the hours you decide based on your own schedule. Keep coming back to this blog (or follow) to see the new items being added to Al A Carte. You can also follow my Pinterest Board where I keep a list of what's available. It may take a few days after any day the café is open to get the numbers updated.


PML Card Banquet

One of the goals in the Pretty Pieces Café is to have a Banquet at least once a month. What's a Banquet?? It's just a fancy name for a class. The event has a start time and an end time. Everyone who attends will be making the same thing at the same time.  I will be the "teacher". You might even learn something.

Guess how long it took me to make this card? Did you guess under 10 minutes? CTMH Picture My Life (PML) cards make it fun and easy to create something adorable at a record speed. AND of course if you want to get all fussy you can do that too. I fought the urge to go further with this. It's important to know that you can make cute things fast.
Here are the Banquet details...
     WHO - YOU and nine other people. There are enough supplies for 10 people.   
     WHAT - make six different cards using PML products and a whole lot more!     
     WHEN - Thursday, August 21st at 10am or 6pm (two hours class)
     WHERE - my house in Shoreview
     WHY - it's fun AND productive all at the same time
The cost for 6 cards is $10 per person. You will need to bring adhesive & scissors. All kinds of other tools will be available for you to use. A buffet of embellishments will also be available in colors that match these cards. It's going to be a lot of creative fun. There are no pre-designed cards in this class. You will have to add in your own creativity. BUT if you look at the card above all I did was adhere the floral card to card stock, tie a ribbon around it and add some bling. EVERYONE can do this.

Here's another card. Of course you can stamp on these too. It's a great way to use a stamp set you purchased because you love it but you don't know want to design something from scratch. Please feel free to bring your own stamp sets to add to your cards. All of the inks & blocks you need will be here.

I made this so you can see that it's not always about pre-decorated PML cards. Here's what these two cards looked like before I got out my washi tape and stamps.

Can you see what I did??

August Take Out Kit

It's time to pre-order the August Scrapbook Take Out Kit, made with the bright and colorful Confetti Wishes Paper. All of the designs are courtesy of Make It From Your Heart Volume One.

Before we go further here's the most important part ... you must contact me by August 18th to have this kit made for you by Friday, August 29th (which is Pretty Pieces Café date).

I will cut all of the pieces you need to make these three layouts. All you have to do is apply adhesive and attach the Confetti Wishes Complements. There are two ways to purchase the kit. The Appetizer option includes just the paper pack and the coordinating stickers for $23. If you want the Complete Meal it will add the Purple Glitter Gems and Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon the price is $32. No matter which you choose all of the leftover scraps are yours to keep.

I thought it would be fun this time around for you to see what the layouts look like with pictures on them. So I'm showing you the "after" version. Here I've added photos AND the embellishments that come with the full kit.

Have you decided which Take Out kit to get yet? Once you know you can contact me by email at  shellynemitz@gmail.com. We can I'll get you signed up and we can work out the payment.
