See What's New in Scrapbooking ; Win Tim Holtz Autographed Die!

Hello! This weekend, I had the privilage of going to the Craft & Hobby Association Show (CHA). That is the event that retails, like myself, go to in order to purchase the newest lines available. It was super inspiring and I met loads of great people, including Tim Holtz, Anna Griffen, Donna Downey, Teresa Collins and more.

If you are wanting to sign up for our amazing Altered Album class - Romantic Flourishes with Laura Baybridge, you only have two days left to sign up. I've attached a picture of it below and it is absolute gorgeous and filled with tons of techniques. Did I mention you only need to bring a pair of scissors?  Also, we have moved our BeLoved Home Dec Mirror class with Stephanie Dade to this coming Wedneday, February 3rd. It is only $15 and is a great off-the-page idea for gifting or for the home.  Finally, we have a new Basic Scrapbooking class this coming Wedneday with Teri Dorowsky for only $10. She will teach you how to choose paper and layouts to match your pictures and basic techniques of scrapbooking.
