Scrapbook Page-Using Metal Embellishments and True Scrap 5 Announcement

I rarely share scrapbook pages here, since I'm primarily a stamper, but I've been scrapping more lately.  This is a page done for a class I'm taking at Big Picture Classes called Stashbuster's Anonymous.  If you could all see my stash, you would know that I need this class.  I took these photos at Downtown Disney.  I followed the challenge sketch fairly closely, but used Tim Holtz metal embellishments instead of the metal frames used in the class sample.

But wait, there's more...
I've got exciting news to share! If you've been lacking in the creative mojo, or wondering how you
can get more life from the scrapping supplies you already own... or you just want to spend a couple of
days with a bunch of super-cool crafty people, then look no further!
My friend Lain Ehmann of True Scrap has pulled together FIFTEEN of the hottest scrapbooking
instructors around to offer two days of inspiration and fun, such as Heidi Swapp, Nichol Magouirk,
Jennifer Gallacher, and a dozen more. They'll be revealing all their best crafting tips, tricks, techniques,
and secrets in the latest True Scrap event – True Scrap 5.
True Scrap 5 is a two-day, online, LIVE event on October 11-12. Yep, that's right – all fifteen
instructors will come to YOU via the magic of the Internet in a state-of-the-art web room. You'll watch
class demonstrations, chat with instructors and other students, and have the time of your crafty life – all
without leaving home (or even changing out of your PJs!).

Register here.

If you're tired of just staring at your crafting supplies or creating the “same old” projects, then check
out True Scrap 5.  Register before Sept 30th and save $50.

Colorful Bird Card

I created this card using colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge #255.  I loved the bright colors they picked this week.

I also used three dies.  The branch die is from Memory Box, the label die is Cheery Lynn and the border die is Spellbinders.  So I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Make the Cut challenge.

If you love color as I do, you might be interested in attending this free seminar hosted by Lain Ehmann of Layout a  Sign up here.
