For All You Scrapbookers…


I know many of you are scrapbookers, so I wanted to give you a heads up on a class that may be of interest to you. My dear, talented friend Kelly Purkey has a new class over at Craftsy called Scrapbooking With Style: Clean & Simple Layouts.

Here’s more about the class:

Create gorgeous backgrounds, layer photos, add embellishments and more, for layouts as timeless and unique as your memories. Join designer Kelly Purkey as she guides you through seven alluring scrapbook pages, as she demystifies design principles for well-balanced layouts you’ll love. She’ll also share a fun new misting technique to create your most beautiful backgrounds yet! Then, work with neutral color schemes and monochromatic pages for a fresh look that keeps the focus on your photos and the faces you love so much in them!

For more information – and $10 off! – click HERE. The class is a bargain… you will always have access… and it is a ton of fun.

I am very excited to be a part of the upcoming Simon Says Stamp Create Event in Columbus, Ohio on May 30 and 31, 2014.

This live event at Simon Says Stamp will have lots of awesome classes and much more! Classes will be taught by Tim Holtz, Shari Carroll, me!, Lawn Fawn’s Kelly Marie Alvarez, OWH’s Sandy Allnock, and Simon Says Stamp’s Stephanie Klauck. I will be co-teaching a stencil class with my friend Shari Carroll. (I couldn’t teach more classes since it is a busy time of year for me but am so happy I can be a part of it still! I will be there the whole weekend crafting along with everyone else when I am not teaching.)
