I would like to share with you several projects I made using the White Pines Paper Pack.

Workshops on the Go White Pines Scrapbooking Kit
Here are the 2 layouts I made using the kit, and the Artistry cartridge.
My November scrapbook club/class will be making this on November 26th from 6:30 pm to 9 pm.  The kit is $41 with shipping and tax and includes all the paper, embellishments, instructions and stamp set to make these layouts.  Inks not included.  (Fern, Cranberry, and Chocolate)  Let me know if you would like to join us this month by Nov 9th.  We meet at a local rec center so we have lots of space.

Next, I have the cards I made using the Workshops on the Go White Pines Cardmaking Kit.  This kit makes 15 cards, 5 each of 3 different designs.  For each of the designs I did one like the kit and then used embossing folders (Honeycomb Quatrefoil, and Dot )and flipping the papers to change it up.  At my card club/class we will be making these November 28th , register by Nov 12th.
