I created the subscription box I wished existed. Here's my impossible wish list that I never found with other companies!
Designed for BOTH scrapbookers and cardmakers, with both 12x12 and 8.5 x 11 cardstocks.
NOT a pre-cut kit, which limits me creatively and makes for lack of versatility.
All color and theme-coordinated, so that pulling projects together was a no-brainer.
Consumable, so that I wasn't contributing to an ever-growing stash.
QUALITY products--no cheapo stuff, no flimsy paper, no 'close enough" colors.
Fun and exciting to receive, with the LATEST colors, patterns and textures.
INEXPENSIVE enough to be a real bargain... but...
also flexible enough that I can skip a month or two whenever I want/need.
LOTS of samples of both cards and pages to get inspired by each month.
On top of all that, I wanted to know IN ADVANCE what the box was going to be based around!
Sound impossible? I wanted to have my cake and eat it, too!
Well, for the last six months, I've been curating just such a kit here at Song of My Heart Stampers! And it is going out to delighted crafters all across the United States. Cardmakers who need the occasional scrapbook page. Scrapbookers who need the occasional card. Papercrafters who love a fresh infusion of color and mojo every four weeks. And anyone who enjoys quality Stampin' Up supplies and color coordination.
I hope you'll take a couple minutes to watch me unbox the July 2020 Suite Sampler and share what I made with it. Then email me to sign up for a box full of fun every month! One that you won't be able to resist opening immediately.
Ahhhh! I am so excited to show off what I made with the March 2020 box from My Layout Library!!!
Each box is a Suite Sampler, meaning it's coordinated around a specific suite or bundle from Stampin' Up and contains everything you can think of to accessorize with it. This month the theme was the colorful Tropical Oasis papers. So fun to work with all that COLOR!
Each month I use the box contents to create about 15 projects, both cards and pages, to show what you can do with a well-designed, color coordinated box. We have a Facebook community where everyone can post what they made with the box, too. You should join us--it's really fun! Anyone can be in the FB community whether they are a past, present or potentially future subscriber! : )
I didn't want to limit the Suite Samplers to JUST scrapbookers or JUST cardmakers, so each month I share ideas for BOTH! I also include a piece of "page candy" that can be used either as a page element or the focal point on a card. This tropical one was sooo fun to make!
I won't do this every time, but here's an itemized list of what was in this particular box, just to give you an idea of how fun it is to receive. My goal is to pack a box that you can't WAIT to open! I want you to say WOW--every month!

I can't WAIT to scrapbook our way to successfully completing albums right and left! If you have been discouraged by your lack of progress and feeling sad about all those pictures sitting around on full memory cards--immersion scrapbooking is the answer.
The second week of the month is always Scrapbook Central around here as I prep for the 4x4 Scrapbooking Class each month for both local and online participants. I LOVE coming up with the kits each month! I can't believe May is our final class in this series already. In August, Song of My Heart's exclusive Scrapbooking Summer School begins, however, so there's plenty to look forward to.
The third layout for class (see layouts one and two here) was this fun hot air balloon-inspired spread featuring Flirty Flamingo and Night of Navy patterns (from the 2016-18 In Colors Stack and the retiring Floral Boutique Designer Series Papers.) The busy patterns work because they stick to the color scheme and a strict grid layout (keeping in mind that many of the patterns will be mostly covered by photos in the completed pages.)
The saying came from the Suite Sentiments stamp set (retiring list, as is the Night of Navy twine and the Irresistibly Floral specialty papers). The hot-air balloon die-cut came from the Up & Away Thinlets dies, which are not retiring. The coordinating Lift Me Up stamp set will also be in the new 2017-18 catalog, but no longer bundled together for a discount. So if you've got your eye on it, the bundle comes in wood or cling-mount and is available only through May.
The final spread for this month's class was a bright birthday layout using the cute scalloped striped patterned pages from the Sale-A-Bration reward paper pack and a fun color scheme of navy, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaroon and Peekaboo Peach.
A scrapbooking staple stamp set, Layered Letters, is sadly leaving our product line this May. I have used Layered Letters on dozens of pages over the years and it's my all-time favorite Stampin' Up alphabet set. It includes the complete alphabet in upper case, plus symbols, and fun stamps to layer colored shapes behind the letters. I highly recommend it both for crafting and also for making school projects, display boards, and even signs and storage bin labels. It's a classic!
Thanks for stopping in to see my layouts! If you have questions about online participation or the local Scrapbooking Summer School series in August, please feel free to email me at Lyssa@songofmyheartstampers.com. The BEST WAY to stay informed on all the doings here at Song of My Heart is by subscribing to my free once-a-week newsletter, a digest of all things stampy!
You'll get a free set of Cheat Sheets Collection #1 when you subscribe, too. Stay tuned for Collection #22, debuting the first week in May!
Song of My Heart's amazing new online club option, Class of the Month Club, officially closed for December 2016 on the 20th. But because it was a BUSY month for many of us, I've extended a second-chance offer for those who missed out! All you have to do is place your Suggested Club Order (or a minimum of $35 in other products) using the code SARR9PYD at checkout. The files will be emailed to you within 24 hours!
And even though the official deadline is past, you'll still get the handmade thank you card and free product sample of the month from me, too.
Most importantly, you'll still qualify for the first point towards the shopping spree you get when you have participated in COTM Club five times!
See the full details here, but be sure to use the SECOND CHANCE CODE: SARR9PYD to place your order no later than noon on December 31st. Your goodies will go straight to your house. Just print out the files and you'll be all set to create!
Hope to see YOUR name on the club membership list, very soon!
I'm so excited to share my newest adventure with you--the first official Class of the Month Club! It's the most flexible club option out there. I'm so SURE you're going to love it, that I'm not even requiring a commitment to "lock you in."
Here's how it works!
What Does Lyssa Prepare Each Month for COTM Club Members?
I choose a stamp set each month and design 4 beautiful cards with it. They will range from easy to intermediate, with at least one advanced fancy fold or technique every month. There will also be two bonus designs, giving you even more ideas for that set!
I'll create a 6-8 page PDF document with full-color photos, cutting measurements and step-by-step instructions, along with lots of tips for all four of the cards. Any necessary templates and cutting guides will be included.
I'll "sneak peek" two of the projects, so you can decide if you're going to participate for the month. No surprises!
What Do COTM Club Members Have to Do Each Month?
You place your order for the Suggested Order for that month (or the dollar equivalent, if you already own some of the items) on my Shop with Lyssa site, using the club code. This lets me know you want to be in Class of the Month Club and get the perks and points!
The club code will be published by the first, and your Suggested Order (or dollar equivalent of other products) must be placed by the 20th. You'll be able to see what's on sale for the month and adjust your personal order to get what YOU want to add to your tools and supplies.
Your order will come straight to you--no waiting for the hostess to close, or trying to schedule pickups.
What's the Typical Cost for COTM Club Each Month?
The total will vary slightly each month depending on the stamp set, but will always be about $30. Your club order will need to be at least that for the month, before shipping and taxes.
Class of the Month Club is a fantastic way to stick to a crafting budget and still get lots of bang for the buck! I'm on a budget, too, so I know what it's like to want both supplies AND ideas--and have to choose between them. With COTM Club, there's no having to choose! Get BOTH every time you participate, as often as YOU are able to participate.
What Happens After Your COTM Club Order Each Month?
The club PDF file will be e-mailed to you within 24 hours after your order. Just print it out and start creating! Your friends and family won't know what's gotten into you. The PDF will go to the email address you used when you ordered unless you tell me otherwise.
I'm completely confident you'll fall in love the full-color photos, measurements, step-by-step instructions, design hints and practical tips that you'll be receiving every month for COTM Club.
Start a binder for the amazing files you'll be getting each month, and you'll soon have an envious collection of tried-and-true inspiration right at your fingertips. Your skills will grow with each additional month as you play along.
What Are Your COTM Club Rewards?
This is the FUN PART! Every time you participate in Class of the Month Club, you get a point. When you get five points, you get a $30 shopping spree--and I'll pay the shipping! This club is NOT a commitment for a certain time period--you participate at YOUR convenience! Play along as your budget allows, and whenever you've been able to take part five times, reward yourself with something fun and FREE.
Every participant also gets their own main catalog and appropriate seasonal publications. And everyone who places a Class of the Month Club order will get a Free Product Sample of the Month inside a handmade thank-you card in the mail. The surprise sample could be ribbon... embellishments... papers... you never know! You will really enjoy getting an extra little goodie to use on a couple of projects of your own. Try it out--and if you like it, put it on your club order next month!
I'm so excited for Class of the Month Club!
I can't wait to share the cards with you each month. Will you be participating?
Maybe you'll wait for the sneak peek of the featured stamp set and decide?
I can't wait for you to become a Class of the Month Club Member... so I can SPOIL you rotten! Hope to see YOUR name pop up on the list next month. Email me anytime! Lyssa@songofmyheartstampers.com
