Adorable CLASS - March 30th



If this adorable layout does not get your attention, I don't know what will!  The moment I saw the layouts for Laura's next scrapbooking class, I fell in love.  Not only is the layout design beautiful and so well planned, but the AMOUNT of technique is insane. This is a WOW here on the blog but even MORE of a WOW in person.  



Choose from pink or blue but don't be fooled.  This layout would look incredible with non-baby photos as well.  Let's hear from the designer herself!!

Adorable Layout - Scrapbooking with Laura

Hi everyone!
We are going to create another wonderful mixed media layout!  This time you have your choice of a PINK or BLUE layout or if you want you can purchase the extra kit and do both!


With this class you will create with colored translucent embossing paste, white embossing paste, homemade mist, pigment powders, prills and stencils.  You will work with some adorable papers from Crate Paper, doilies, flowers from Prima and Kaisercraft and some super cute wood shapes and pom poms!

You will learn how to add texture to your layout with embossing powders, make your own mist using pigment powders, learn how to use pigment powders, color flowers, doilies and wood veneers!  Here are some of the cute details close up!


Layered Stencils create so much depth and interest

Simple Life by Jen Hadfield

Julia's Make and Take from February

When this line by Jen Hadfield was released, I fell in love.  Have a look at the gorgeous natural elements and colours.  You guys know this is MY style.  But I also love the pop of colour as on the flowers and seed packets.  The designs are so feminine and beautiful.  Have a look for yourself.

This is the paper we used for Julia's make and take.
Simple, easy cards just waiting to be made!
The moment I saw this sheet of paper, I knew I HAD to work with it.  Twelve simple and easy cards to whip up and have on hand?  Score one for the good guys!


We filled the space behind the designer card
with tissue paper to make it look like a seed pack
More great paper to cut up and use in your project life albums or planners.


Check out this sheet.  Great for cards, planners or layouts.


Pretty.  Pretty.  Pretty.


Bicycle LOVE.

Cow Hide?  Come on Man.  Love this.

This is not from the Simple Life line but I HAD to show you this today.
It is so life like and beautiful.  It would make an incredible backdrop for a
 12x12 layout or even a design element in your home!

 These are all in stock now.

SALE - 2 days left to save
PS....In Like a Lion SALE continues!  Take 25% off all in stock dies (and we have an incredible selection by the way!!).

Hope to see you soon.
