First Scrap Addicts Class; Happy Go Lucky Layout and Cards Plus Bonus Projects!

Last night was my first class at Scrap Addicts and it went great!  I had three lovely ladies join me in completing a double page layout and three cards using Fancy Pants "Happy Go Lucky" collection.

I used a sketch by Scrapbook Generation for this layout:



And here are the cards:






And for those that loved this collection as much as I do, here are a couple of BONUS projects that all those who took the class received a supply list and instructions for:





Another Allison Davis for Scrapbook Generation sketch for the layout:







I had so much fun designing and instructing this first class, I can hardly wait for my December classes!!  Sneak Peeks of the layout class should be ready in a day or two, stay tuned!

Happy Scrappin'!

New Scrapbook Store, Scrap Addicts; New Job!; First Layout and Card Class!

Exciting news!!  Last week a brand new scrapbook store opened up in Edmonton - 3 minutes from my house AND I am going to be instructing there!!!  I am super excited about this new venture!  The store is called Scrap Addicts and Cori-Lyn and Ivy, the owners, have done an amazing job setting up so far :-)



My first class will be on Monday, Nov.25th (Weds. one got cancelled), and uses Fancy Pants "Happy Go Lucky" collection for a beautiful Fall double page layout and 3 any occasion cards.  I just love the colours in this paper line and all the great embellishments to work with.

Here is the collage post that was posted on Facebook announcing the class:

New Addition and Scrapbook Nerd October Guest Designer Cards!

Well I am a little late posting this - things got crazy busy around The Green house this week - we got a new puppy!!  We were not expecting to bring a puppy home for a few months, but got the call last weekend that one had come available and we could pick her up this past weekend . . . so we did!!  So first thing first, here is my new baby girl, Miss Roxy!!



Isn't she adorable??!!  It's a good thing she is so cute too, cuz she is not letting us getting much rest right now!!  For an 8 week old puppy though, she is settling in really well and adjusting to her new home and family - and she is already house trained!!
My kids are LOVING having a new puppy - best "toy" ever!

Now on to the scrappy portion of this post!

I was thrilled to be asked by Scrapbook Nerd to be their Guest Designer for the months of October and November!!!  Last week was my first reveal week, where I got to show off the cards I made with all the wonderful goodies I got to play with!

For October I got to play with Crate Paper's The Pier, and got to show off it's great versatility - it's not just for summer!!  Here are the cards I created:


I used the gold baker's twine by Crate Paper to create a multi-loop flower and topped it off with some Mother of Pearl bling!




I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" distress ink, but you could use any light brown ink.  The "happy birthday" sentiment is stamped first in a pink ink, and then again with a brown ink just slightly off the first stamped image to give a shadowed look.


LOVED the gold sequins included in The Pier Ephemera pack - perfect touch for some fall cards!


The Freckled Fawn wooden frames were especially awesome, as the words "Favorite" and "Hello" were not only cut into the frames but the negative letters were included as well!  I used the "Hello" letters here, as well as the heart:


The Nerds challenged their designers for the month of October to use journalling cards for something other than journalling - this was super easy to do with cards, I just layered complimentary cards onto my card base, stamped and embellished!  Great way to make some quick cards!


This one was my personal favourite, I just loved the colour combination - and that "Enjoy Every Moment" Chic Tag!!


I also created some 6x6 cards, this gave me a bigger canvas to include more of the great pieces from The Pier Ephemera pack, as well as all the amazing stamp sets I got to use!  I sooooo love the Hero Arts "Brush Strokes" set - perfect set to "mess" things up a bit and add that final touch!




My first time working with a sheet of Crate Paper's washi paper, and oh what a clever product!  So many patterns of washi tape in one 12"x12" sheet equals endless possibilities!!!



Hope you enjoyed viewing these cards as much as I enjoyed creating them, and remember to see past the theme of your papers/collections and open up so many creative possibilities!

Like what you see?  Check out the store at Scrapbook Nerd to get all these great products and so much more!!



Happy Scrappin'!!
