Hey sweet readers! First and foremost- Let me share the Elle's studio winners from a couple of weeks ago!
Please email me at harpersmama8(at)gmail(dot)com!
Moving on- I have two awesome giveaways for you guys today.
Up first- one of my favorite small businesses around. Freckled Fawn.
The monthly OHDEERME Embellishment Kit is an exciting new concept in the scrapbooking world. Each month, Freckled Fawn designs and manufactures a collection of coordinating embellishments. You will receive a tin filled with enough embellishments to inspire you as you create dozens of lovely projects!
With the OHDEERME embellishments in hand, browsing your personal paper stash each month will become an exciting endeavor as you preserve your memories, fashion a card for just the right occasion, or add flair to a gift for a special person. You can start your kit subscription [ HERE ].
Note from Doe:
On a personal level, this kit actually works perfectly for me as a scrapper. I tend to have a lot of guilt when I look at my mountain of scrapbook paper but I always feel like I don't have enough embellishments to really work with and use up all my paper goods. So working with a coordinated collection of embellishments each month will really inspire me to pull out my paper stash and preserve my memories!
It is exciting to know that each month I'll get to play with new embellishments that can't be purchase anywhere else, no more of the "same ole, same ole" repetition that can easily stagnate my creativity. I hope this kit club works for you as well and I am just GIDDY with excitement because I have such fun, FUN embellishments planned each month.
Next today? A fun new class by my friend (and creative inspiration) Catherine Davis.
PROCESS with Catherine Davis
Design Editor Takes You from Lightbulb to Layout
Starts 10/31/2013 $45
Class Description: Looking to breathe new life into your scrapbook pages or Project Life layouts? The beauty is in the process. Interested in scrapbooking smarter, better, simpler, or with greater intention? PROCESS is the key.
Yes, we're talking about your personal creative process, that series of choices you must make to get from a lightbulb moment to a layout you adore. We're also talking about PROCESS, a new 4-week workshop from "Design Editor" Catherine Davis.
Catherine is a visual journalist who has designed pages at one of the nation's top newspapers. She's also a scrapbooker who blogs at designeditor.typepad.com and designs scrapbook layouts for both the Studio Calico and Becky Higgins' Project Life creative teams.
She's here to share how she applies her years of professional design experience to scrapbooking. She'll teach you to apply design fundamentals to your projects, no matter what your style. She'll share her favorite memory-keeping techniques, design tricks, and inspiration sources. And she'll do it all in her signature, highly visual teaching style.
All you have to do is show up, read, watch, absorb, and create. As you accept and apply Catherine's weekly challenges, you'll find yourself opening up to a new world of insights—and refining your personal creative process so it works for you, instead of the other way around.
