Happy week of love! In case you need a little inspiration for making some cards this week, I created a few cards. I pulled out the rest of an old Fancy Pants collection from my stash to finish using up- Love Story. It’s perfect for those cute “lovey-dovey” cards.
I made four cards-
And I have a fun little tip for you! You know how the papers come with a strip at the bottom that says the name of the collection? Well, I cut some of them out to use as a decoration or these cards! Fun right???
I hope you are having a lovely and crafty week!!!
Well, we have fun turning our photos into layouts to add to our scrapbook albums! We have brand new sketches for you to follow (or to simply inspire you…your choice) along with samples of how to do it, tips, tutorials and more. You work at your own pace and check in when you can. Some class members share layouts for a chance to win a fun prize…some choose not to share-it’s up to you!
Here’s a sketch from a class that we had a couple of years ago along with my layout. The hearts caught my attention-being February and all! This is my sweet middle child…she looks so little in this photo!!
I hope you will consider giving a class a try…you won’t regret it!
We are about ready to open up the Inspired to Scrap classroom for another Weekend Warrior class! I hope you will consider joining us. It’s only $5 and you get SEVEN new sketches, lots of tips and inspiration, support and a chance to win a prize or two! Let’s get more pages completed this year by working together.
Here’s a little peek at one of the sketches to get you excited for class-
Here are the photo sizes included in our upcoming Weekend Warrior sketches. You are free to substitute sizes as needed, of course! Creativity is welcome! These are provided to help you in your photo ordering and planning.

I hope these help you in your planning! I am excited for class and can’t wait to open with the pre-class sketch on Wednesday, February 5th!!
We have Weekend Warrior classes planned to help you get lots of pages completed in a short amount of time. Of course, you can always use the inspiration any time of the year, but we love being able to crank out the layouts and still have time to spend on other things in our lives. We go strong for a few days then you have time to catch up (or take a break!).
During our Weekend Warrior classes, we will present seven *brand new* sketches along with *inspiration* during one weekend. Then, you have another week to use the inspiration to complete pages for a chance to win a fun prize. The cost is super low (just $5!!!) and the pay off of inspiration is HUGE! Give it a try and complete more pages in 2014!
Here’s the lineup for the next few classes:
*February Weekend Warrior Class- (February 5-16)
~Access to a private forum on the message board
~SIX brand new sketches along with inspiration sample layouts plus a bonus pre-class sketch to get those creative juices flowing!!
~ A special crafty tutorial
~a variety of tips and ideas
~a PDF with the sketches, samples and other information after class ends.
*Classes will open on Wednesday (with a pre-class challenge!) and begin Friday mornings by 10 am Mountain Time. Class content will be presented Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You will have until the following Sunday to complete your layouts and/or projects.
**Here’s the plan for the upcoming class. Of course, as always, you may change up the photo sizes…these are only suggestions!
