All Stars 2 Class | Giveaway

You gals have heard me chatter a lot lately about Pocket Scrapbooking and getting the memories recorded. But not much about the classes produced over at Scrapaneers lately, which I enjoy producing thoroughly! And the latest collaboration class is one of our biggest, and most technique heavy, classes to date!

The brand new All Stars 2 class collaborates lessons from myself, Amanda Taylor, Jana Morton, Amy Kingsford, Wendy Zines, and Cilenia Curtis! And we’re offering our best tricks for creating pixel magic in the areas of Cloning, Healing, Transparent Layers, Sketching & Painted Art, Dimensional Effects, Paper Creation and Lightroom techniques. You can learn more about our individual lessons here. 

My long — think almost a half hour video lesson — is the Paper Machine Workshop where I share in great detail how to produce beautiful, organic (non-patterned), adorned, grungy papers. We’re not talking solid, textured papers here. We’re talking organic designs! Like this:

I’m flipping excited because it’s a set of techniques I’ve wanted to share for ages! But wasn’t quite long enough for a full-fledged class. Within the All Stars 2 collaboration class; however, I can introduce you to grungy digital paper creation art and you will become a paper-creating machine!

And there are five other lessons just as intense and kick-butt as mine!

All Star Techniques 2 opens for registration this Monday at a steal of a deal! But you can win a complimentary seat by entering my giveaway first!

Project Life 2014 | Dipping My Pinky Toe

Sigh. I caved. For years I avoided Project Life because I felt it wouldn’t fit my scrapbooking style. Even after crafting the Window System for my vacation photos earlier this year, I was still on the fence. And then the truth dawned on me: what would I, and my kids, appreciate in the future? My style or our thoughts? This art or my messages? Obviously, we care about our thoughts and the messages!

And when I look back at my childhood photos do I balk at the stiff polaroids with faded colors? Or do I cherish each and every single one? Sugar, I love every single one — even  the ones without dates! No, they’re not digital, professional, or composed correctly. But they highlight my favorite memories and capture my family. Thus, I had my answer!
