Here is my latest catch up. Just a heads up there is all sorts of news coming out over this week and next from me so if you are signed up for my newsletter be expecting a couple in you in box
Get It Scrapped is shifting into spring mode and there is some beautiful work being showcased there! In an article about using mosaics on your layout you will find a lot of fun unique ways to create a one of a kind look using a mosaic on your page. Don’t miss out check out the ideas HERE
That is it for today! BUT I will be back tomorrow and several times over the next two weeks!!! So stay tuned!
Yep, that is a direct quote from my brother Matt. Sounds a little like a Montey Python movie, but then that’s Matt. In a fun article over at Get It Scrapped I shared a layout with Matt’s proclamation as the title. Debbie Hodge is focusing in on journaling and making the shape of your journaling re-enforce the theme of your layout. Check it out HERE
The weather has turned a corner here and we are basking in the glory of spring. Hope everyone else is just as blessed!
I just wanted to share a page I completed (finally). There is a little story to this one. Do you ever attend crops or events and take classes that create pages, all but the photos? I LOVE to do these classes, LOVE to create the pages and then they sit! I don’t add photos, don’t take the time, forget they are there, just plain forget to finish. This particular page is all Basic Grey. I heart all things Basic Grey! I loved the class, the instructor was spectacular and I completed it in October of 2011. Yes, that long ago but did not add the photos until this past week. I was going to make a partner page with similar papers on at least 2 or 3 occasions and in fact have those completed and in my scrapbooks but this lovely page just never got it’s final addition of photos. This past week I completed an assignment for Get It Scrapped for this next month that had PERFECT photos for this page so I forced myself, I pulled out the page made a page to go with it for GIS added one butterfly and two photos to this page and woosh it is finally happily complete . It took all of one minute…well one minute and one and a half years he he. ( I will post the partner page when it comes out next month)
On a personal note allergies have kicked in so i want to itch my eyeballs and throat and to add insult to injury it is now snowing, or has been for two days solid. All we could do was laugh. It is a big slushy mess, too warm to really pile up and off the roads just a muddy slushy mess. We know next week will warm up so the t-shirts and short pants are still ready to go!
Happy weekend everyone!
I want to make sure to let anyone who is interested know about the classes I am teaching live at a local shop! This next month I will be teaching 2 doodleing classes at Memory Bound Scrapbook Store in Ankeny, Iowa. On Saturday May 4th from 10:00-12:00 I will be teaching Oodles of Doodles. (This link will take you to the monthly newsletter giving you all the info on both classes.) We will be making a small mini album FULL of hand doodling.
On Friday, May 31 from 6:00-8:00 I will be teaching Doodle Tangle. In this class we will be focusing more on grouping doodles together inside shapes. These will be added to a few new frame patterns and then a 12 x 12 layout.
Please contact Memory Bound and join me if you are close by! I would love to see some friends! And if you are a new follower and joining me make sure to introduce yourself, I love to get to know knew friends!
Have a great weekend!
I have been waiting to share this particular layout. I love all the pieces of it. You know there are times where you like a layout and then there are times you love every little bit, this is one of those times. I think the other part is I created so much of it myself. I doodled the computer screen frames. misted the background, hand wrote the journaling even doodles on the ticket. It was what I saw in my head and I was able to get it all out in paper, ink and tape. It just feels good.
This particular layout is part of an article at Get It Scrapped that is a collection of layouts giving tribute to our closest friends, I am proud to have Tami as one of mine and so thrilled to share the layout about her!
