Hearts and Pocket Pages

Valentines Day will be here before we now it.  I have some project ideas up my sleeve but I am still sidelined by this miserable cold. I thought I'd share these heart ornaments I did a few years ago.  I found the heart shaped ornaments at Michaels.  They are usually sold in the holiday season but you might be able to find them now - maybe even as a clearance item.

You can find the original post about making these ornaments HERE.  I am thinking about leaving up one of our Christmas trees and decorating it for Valentine's Day this year - have you ever done that?

Remember the free Scrapinar about organizing is on Wednesday.  If you are interested in pocket page scrapping, sign up for the Scrapinar by clicking HERE.  There will be a replay available for a short time if you can't attend live but you must be registered to have access to the recorded version.


If you are really getting interested in pocket page scrapping, you should check out the True Scrap Pocket Pages event coming up on January 25th. I have a special discount code to offer my readers that is good through Monday, January 13th.

Pocket Scrapbooking is getting more and more popular.  It is easier in some ways since you can just pop photos, journaling blocks or decorative papers into the pocket pages, however, there are also some challenges in making it work for you - particularly if you have always done more traditional pages.  Lain Ehmann has assembled a great group of instructors to teach you lots of options for creating in this style.

There will be six sessions with the following instructors:

Stephanie Bryan, Gossamer Blue Creative Team Member
 “Outside the Lines: Creative Approaches to Adding Journaling to Your Pocket Pages”
 Lilith Eeckels, American Crafts Design Team Member and Two Peas Garden Girl
“Playing Big: Adding 12×12 photos and layouts to your Pocket Pages Albums”
Layle Koncar, Marketing Director for Simple Stories
 “Pocket Scrapping 101: Back to Basics”
Monica McNeil, Former Project Life Creative Team Member
 “KISS: Keep It Simple, Scrappy! Simplifying the Pocket Page Process”
Marcy Penner, Studio Calico Design Team Member
 “Do You Hear What I Hear? Including Your Family’s Perspectives in Your Pocket Spreads”
Traci Reed, Gossamer Blue Design Team Member 
“Hybrid Hints for Paper People”

all hosted by the fabulous Lain Ehmann.   There are live question and answer sessions with the instructors and you don't even have to leave home to participate.  True Scrap events are a lot of fun and you have access to all of the class videos to watch over and over again after the event. 

The advertised price for True Scrap Pocket Pages is $149, but I have a special offer to share.  Just use the code 99DOWN to save $99 if you sign up by Monday, January 13th. That means for only $50, you will receive six classes, a pre-event PJ party, discounts, full recordings and unlimited replays of everything.  That's a great price for six classes.  Click HERE to get more information and claim the deal before Monday!

Sizzix $250 Giveaway

I have lots and lots of Sizzix dies - I started using them long before I had any digital die cutting machines.  I saw this great giveaway and wanted to share it with you all.  One lucky winner will be chosen at random to win a $250 gift card.  The winner will be announced on January 13, 2013.  Click HERE to enter the giveaway.

I am still trying to get over this cold - I haven't left the house for five days and I am starting to get a little stir crazy!  Lots of liquids and sleep should do the trick soon - with a little luck I will get back to my craftroom before the end of the week...I hope...
