3rd Annual Creative Crop & a Giveaway!!
Tomorrow is National Scrapbooking Day!! If you don't have any plans yet, I'd like to invite you to join me along with nine other teachers from Big Picture Classes for a 10 hour FREE crop. You can register here, or by clicking on the image above.
So what is the Creative Crop 2013?
10 hours of free scrapbooking challenges, prizes, chats, and more! Every hour on the hour, for 10 straight hours there will be a new scrapbooking challenge that will inspire you to create, stretch, grow, and play. Throughout the day, you'll also have the opportunity to live chat with industry experts, amazing prize giveaways from the event sponsors, and constant inspiration and interaction! The fun starts May 4th, 2013 at: 10am Pacific / 11am Mountain / 12pm Central / 1pm Eastern
I'm going to be in the chat room from 1:00-1:30 pm PST and I hope to see you there!!
In honor of the big day, I have one spot to give away in Lisa Day's upcoming class 28 Days of Sketches: Round 2.
Here is a little more about the class:
Lisa Day is back with another round of 28 sketches—again! 28 Days of Sketches: Round 2 delighted nearly 400 scrapbookers last summer, and this is your chance to get in on the action.
In this daily email class, you'll receive a new 12" x 12" sketch every day for 28 days, each accompanied by a layout from Lisa and a layout or card from one of eight fabulous guest stars! In addition, you will see each sketch adapted to a double-page layout and an 8 1/2" x 11" sketch.
There are 60 exclusive projects in all to inspire you to create beautiful layouts and cards quickly. All this means MORE inspiration and MORE ideas of how to make a sketch work for you!
I was asked to be a contributor to the class along with these amazingly talented scrapbookers.
Lisa was a contributor to my new eBook, Stretch Your Sketches 2. While our sketch styles are very different, we both believe the same things about them: sketches provide a foundation for your creative process. They are not meant to limit or control your creativity, rather they give you the freedom to focus on other aspects of the scrapbooking process such as product choice, color, techniques and storytelling.
If you want a chance to enter this giveaway leave a comment telling me what you love about sketches. When you comment, please be sure to leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win. Comments for this giveaway will remain open until Monday, May 6th, 11:59 pm PST. I will select a winner at random and they will be contacted shortly thereafter.
