Category: launch party
yesterday was a crazy fun day! who knew that we could have such a great party virtually! don’t you just love that about all the cool tech-y possibilities we have right at our fingertips! i loved seeing so many of you that i know, so many of you i recognize from classes and webshows and events!!
i want to thank you all SO MUCH for your support and for all the kind comments and excitement around this new little adventure! i really did have a blast putting together all the little videos ( the color magic video was probably my favorite) and the project slideshow… i learned a lot!
i thought you might like to see a little ‘behind the scenes’ as i created those videos and made an epic mess in my studio doing it!
now it’s time to announce our grand prize winner from our last giveaway from the launch party! Our randomly chosen winner for a seat in The Art of Observation class from Big Picture Classes is Jeannie Walsh. Congrats Jeannie! I’ll send you a note to share details about getting registered for the class!

have a great weekend!
update: giveaway is now closed. congrats to Jeannie Walsh, our randomly selected winner!
Bringing back my own brand of products to the scrapbooking industry was not a decision that I took lightly. I tried some different things over the past couple years, and even tried to convince myself to try something else – maybe something entirely different?! cake decorating…floral arranging…even my long time dream of being a ‘wedding planner’! heck, maybe I could become a personal trainer, and have no excuse not to be fit and healthy!? But I kept coming back to scrapbooking. I can’t look at a cute shirt in J Crew and not see the pattern on scrapbook paper or a cute pair of earrings, and wonder if it would work as a brad or button on a mini-book. but it’s even more than that:
I believe in scrapbooking.
I love to scrapbook. I believe that it matters, and that it’s an amazing gift to everyone in our lives. I believe in it’s power to celebrate, to cherish, to heal and to share. I believe it’s a responsibility to remember. It’s not cause I need a job; it’s cause I can’t not do it.
5 years ago I taught a one year online class called ‘a year to remember’, which will still go down in history as my most memorable, crazy, difficult, challenging and REMEMBERED year of my life, as I gave birth to my 5th child and moved with our family overseas to home school and learn how to live in China. Big Picture Classes has invited me back this year, (well, I finally accepted the invitation this year) to teach as part of the FOUR EXPERTS series. It’s a 12 week course entitled “The Art of Observation”. In this class I will be sharing the very fundamentals of how to SEE, and notice things in the world around you, and how to document it, in a very new and interesting way using my brand new Memory File concepts.
We are wrapping up the launch party today with our last and final giveaway of the evening and it is a BIG ONE! Big Picture is sponsoring this giveaway and the total value is $99! Totally awesome and a great way to end this amazing day! i hope you’ve had as much fun as i have!

I am always on the look out for a fun new type of material to play with, or develop into a new product! This year, I have taken a simple scallop and playful fringe, and used a unique material that isn’t quite paper and not quite fabric… it’s soft and pliable, won’t rip easily –but you can sew it, glue it and ……MELT IT! Check out this little video I made showing you how to make the fringe go POP!

don’t you just love the AMAZINGLY gorgeous Memory File box?! It’s so sleek, and fun… the storage box comes in 2 colors that coordinate with all of the file folders! Ok, you will be amazed with what you can do with these decorative file folders! The possibilities seem endless! While I have been building projects inside the files… I have also been cutting these folders and combining them together to create mini-books and cards! The unique shapes make them totally fun to play with! You might just be tempted to change out the boring old files in your file cabinet! That’s allowed!!
