I know the title suggest otherwise, but I'll start with the TOOT! (It just sounded better the other way round). I was chosen as card of the week over at Card Patterns yesterday for sketch #7. I'll be guest designer for sketch #9. I received the sketch yesterday, and I can tell you it's different. The new sketch will go live on Saturday, so stay tuned.
Hybrid scrapbooking. Ever considered to use your computer to make a layout, and still use your traditional scrapbooking supplies as well? Is not knowing 'how to' one of the reason you haven't gone down this path, or you just wish you knew a little more about it. Well now's your chance.
Yesterday Jessica Sprague opened her new self-paced classes called Scrapbook Alchemy. This class combines digital techniques with traditional scrapbooking. I signed up for the first episode yesterday, and have almost finished my layout. As part of purchasing Episode 1 of Scrapbook Alchemy you get a free gift code to share with a someone else, a lab partner.
I've decided to give my free gift code away to one of my blog readers. Just leave a comment on this blog post by Sunday, and I'll pick a winner on Monday. No need to have any digital experience, but you do need to have either Photoshop Elements or Photoshop CS.
I've still got to add my last embellishment on my LO, which is drying as I type this, but I'll leave you with a sneak. I'll post the whole LO when it's finished.
Finally, I would like to thank all of you for your comments. I'm seeing quite a few new names popping up in there. It's good to be able to put some faces to my blog readers and to return the favour and visit your blogs in return.
edited: If you really would like to try this class and you haven't got Photoshop, you could always download a free 30 day trial from Adobe's website here to see if it's something for you.
