Arts, Crafts, and Scrapbooking Updates

Today, I wanted to let you know about three things:

  • The new Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions idea book is available
  • Where you can find Tracie Claiborne’s Journal Your Life class
  • Donna Downey’s Find Out Fridays

The new Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions idea book became available September 1st. It is full of all kinds of items to create scrapbook pages, pocket scrapbooking, cards, and various paper crafting projects, including some Cricut projects. These items are available through December 2016. Don’t delay and miss out! See the Holiday Expressions now.

I promised I would let you know where you could get Tracie Claiborne’s “Journal Your Life” online class, so a little update today to give you the link. No, I don’t make anything from your purchase. She just put together a phenomenally helpful class on journaling. So whether you have been averse to journaling, or you are sometimes stuck, you may want to check it out!

Something else you may be interested in is Donna Downey’s new free series, Find Out Fridays. Each week we will have the opportunity to watch an artist open up a pre-selected group of materials they have been sent, and show us what they decide to do with them! I am sure those of you who are interested in art/mixed media, you will really enjoy this series.  Here is the first segment, with Jane Davenport.
