A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT (ANOTHER ONE!), SNEAK PEEKS AND A NEW CLASS!

You guys.  Adoption is crazy, hard work!  While everyone is talking about Valentine's Day and discussing the latest political news, I'm over here up to my eyeballs in research, paperwork, discussions with the hubs, baby registries, and more.  Seriously, my brain feels like a bowl of melted ice cream some days. lol. But I know it will be so worth it in the end. 

In the meantime, I have some REALLY BIG NEWS for you all (I mean, besides my baby news). 

I'm going to be teaching with Big Picture Classes again! Yes! I'm so excited. My newest class will premier in April 2017 so right now, I'm working behind the scenes to create twelve(!) really awesome lessons for you.   Please stay tuned on that, I'll be sharing more about it at the end of the month in my newsletter.  If you're not already signed up to receive my newsletter, you can sign up here. 

Lastly, I wanted to share three sneak peeks of some fun projects I've put together using the newest releases from One Little Bird and Paislee Press (links below).  P.S.  I'll be sharing the full pages in my BPC class and on Instagram in April.

Happy Thoughts | 6x8 Pocket Page Spread featuring Positive Vibes by Paislee Press

Happy Monday friends!  While I may not have started working on my 2017 Annual Pocket Page Album, I have created a few spreads in my 6x8 personal album.  I really love this size, it's just so fun to work with and I don't feel like I need a large group of photos or stories to work with.  

Recently, Liz over Paislee Press released the cutest edition of digital designs called Positive Vibes. I fell in love the with color palette first and then with the phrases the kit offers.  You've got to go check out!

Introducing "Blast From the Past", My New Class at Big Picture Classes!

Hey everyone!

I'm excited to be here today sharing the launch of my Big Picture Classes class, "Blast from the Past".  You may remember me sharing a little bit about it here. My launch date was moved up from November to TODAY!

That's right, the class is now LIVE! 

If you're like me, you have all kinds of photos laying around, waiting to be scrapbooked...  The task can seem daunting and overwhelming. How do you choose what photos to scrapbook? Where will you find the time? Where do you even begin?

Well friend, your worries are over!

I have a process for sorting through your collection of photographs (both printed and digital), organizing them, and getting them into a pocket page album. I have tips and tricks that will help you break the entire process into fun and manageable steps. By the end, you’ll have a gorgeous album filled with an entire year’s worth of your favorite memories!

If you're not already a member of Big Picture Classes, I highly recommend them.
In fact, you can sign up for a FREE two week trial here!

I'll see YOU in the classroom!


Psst!  Follow me on Instagram to catch all the sneak peeks of the album I created for the class, including some lovely products from the amazing Felicity Jane Studio.


 

Easy, Simple 9x12 Pocket Page Scrapbook Layout featuring Paislee Press's School Years Collection

Hello Thursday!  Who's ready for a little #tbt? 

 

Today, I'm sharing a super simple, quick layout I created while working on my 2010 (yes! you read that right!) Pocket Page Album for my upcoming class at Big Picture Classes! So, not only is this a feature of some new products for one of my creative teams, it's also a sneak peek of what is coming up in my class!

Easy, Simple 9x12 Pocket Page Scrapbook Layout featuring Paislee Press's School Years Collection

With kids getting ready to go back to school, the amazing Liz Tamanaha over at Paislee Press designed this fun School Years collection.  I'm totally loving all the script and word art.  I used the journal cards and the tags in this bright, simple layout I created with some photos I did for my sister's senior year back in 2010.

I journaled on the 3x4 card, then trimmed it down and laid it over a striped journal card. I also popped in that green polka dot piece of paper from an older Felicity Jane kit because it made the tag pop and well honestly, who doesn't love green OR polka dots?!

I topped the tag off with a cute little piece of mini flair from Feed Your Craft and called it done.  I love doing these simple layouts with the focus really being on the photos.  If you're interested in learning more about how I'm pulling together an entire annual album from one year's worth of boxed photos, then you're going to love my Big Picture Class coming up in November. Check back on this blog for more information and links on how you can get access to my class closer to then!
