If you have gotten caught up in the pocket scrapbooking trend you may have lots of pocket sized papers that didn't make it into a book - what do you do with those?
If you are like me, you may not have created a pocket scrapbook (yet) but you may be hopelessly attracted to 12 x 12 paper meant to be cut up into pocket pieces - like these...(all of these papers are just sitting in my craft room waiting for something to happen to them!)

I have occasionally cut these papers up for cards but that doesn't make much of a dent in the stash! Would you like to put some of your pocket page papers to better use?
My very talented friend, Monica Bradford, has some great ways to use these supplies on standard scrapbook pages and for mini albums. She is teaching a four week, online workshop at Big Picture Classes called Scrapbooking Outside the Pocket, starting on March 6th - that's Thursday! The class is only $25 and includes weekly videos and handouts with examples and lots of inspiration, bonus handouts with extra tips and tricks, a message board to chat with classmates, a gallery to share your work, two live chats with Monica and more.
You can find out more about the class and see Monica's intro video on the Big Picture Classes site HERE. Monica is a trained teacher with years of experience. Her classes are well organized and she has wonderful sense of humor - you will laugh a lot in her classes while you are learning.
Monica has generously offered to give a FREE SPOT in her class to one of my blog readers - I told you there would be some more fun giveaways now that the Blog Anniversary Celebration has ended.
I'll be taking this class so I hope that some of you will sign up to take it too. The class starts Thursday so this will be a fast giveaway. To enter, just leave a comment on this post and tell me if you have completed a pocket page, "Project Life," type of scrapbook or if you just have accumulated supplies to do one "someday." There's no time like the present to start using your 3 x 4 and 4 x 6 cards in a project.
I will draw a winner late Tuesday night and announce the name Wednesday morning - so you will have time to get enrolled and be ready for the first class on Thursday.
Remember - to see all of the details about the class and register, visit the Big Picture Classes site HERE.
I am continuing to test various types of cuts on my new Cricut Explore machine. I should have a full review sharing my opinions about the machine posted this week. So far I have to say it is making a very favorable impression but there are a few places I see room for improvement. I feel pretty confident that some of the concerns I have will be addressed in the near future as more and more feedback comes to the company from this first group of users.
Snow coming again - will this winter ever end?
