Big Picture Decemeber Duos

I'm very excited to share about a new class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking!  I get to teach this class along with 12 other amazingly talented ladies. I hope you will check out this class and give it try!

I know for me when they sent me the idea for the class I was in love with the concept of the duos. I can't wait to see what you do this holiday with this super fun class!

12 Days of Christmas: December Duos
Document Your Holiday in a Delightfully Fun and New Way
Capture Christmas as it happens! A dozen instructors are here to help you photograph this year's holiday memories and display them in a delightfully simple album that will warm your heart for years to come.

The "December Duos" concept is easy, stress-free, and inspiring. Every day for the twelve days leading up to Christmas Day, two of our twelve instructors will share a scrapbook layout, video message, and a page prompt in the form of a duo ("warm & cold," "give & receive," "near & far"). That's a total of two-dozen inspiring ideas!

-12 days of inspiration and instruction from 12 of our favorite BPC teachers
-2 new video messages and layout examples per day, for a total of 24 inspiring ideas 
-Printable 3" x 4" journaling cards and title cards featuring more than 24 different duos—with a number of design options for your album!
-Printable 4" x 6" title page card options
-An easy-to-complete Project Life approach followed by most instructors, with four alternate approaches (traditional scrapbooking, digital, and art journaling) included as well
-Email reminders to visit the classroom for the 12 days leading up to Christmas
-A peek at 5 complete albums from 5 different instructors, who will be creating their entire albums in real time along with you, and sharing them in a live video chat on January 2
-Welcome note in the classroom
-Private posting gallery to share your work and view the work of your classmates

Fun News, A Layout to Share & A Giveaway

I decided to take some time off from posting to catch up on some family time and of course I have some projects in the works.  So now that things are starting to calm down around here I wanted to do a FUN post. 

First some fun news, I will be rejoining Elle's Studio as a Contributing Designer.  I'm so excited about this opportunity!  I had a blast when I was on her team last year so of course I jumped at the chance to work with her and her products again.  FYI there is a DT call going on right now so be sure to check Elle's Studio blog you won't want to miss it.

Also on another fun note, I received an email from Jodi over at Fancy Pants Designs (while she was at CHA) and said that Scrapbook Cards & Today wanted to take one of my layouts with them to publish in their fall magazine. I was so excited because this was my first publication with this magazine.  So here is the layout using the new Collecting Moments line from Fancy Pants.


Now on to the giveaway, Scrapbook Cards & Today sent me two copies of their new fall issue and I want to give one way.  Just follow the prompts below for your chance to win. This magazine is full of amazing inspiration!
