TUTORIAL: You won’t want to miss how to make an adorable shaker card with Marja from Home Office. PLUS, there might be a sneak peek of what is launching soon!

Mandy Reedyk is a CM Advisor from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. She has been scrapbooking for 17 years. She started scrapbooking to document her firstborn’s first year of life and hasn’t stopped since. She’s been an Advisor for one year and was a Consultant years ago with the old CM. She joined as an Advisor because she has always loved CM albums and was overjoyed with the new Happy Album and its size — it’s more in line with the sizing she prefers these days and has created and taught multiple projects with the Happy Albums in the past year.

  1. This is frustrating …. FaceBook will not let me post because apparently there has been a limit on how much you can post on FaceBook … How can I continue the Virtual Crop when I cannot even post? Guess I am out of this one too! : (

      1. Hi Carmene – Sometimes it does that to us too! Just wait a bit and then try posting again. There is usually just a limit in a certain amount of time. Like Donna noted, you have the whole event so you still have time!

  2. These cards are perfect for birthdays coming up in my family! I have several men who are train fanatics. So PERFECT! And what little girl wouldn’t love the hot-air balloon sailing through the card? Thank you for such inspiring cards. <3
