Deals and Steals: More October Afternoon & A Free Online Scrapbook Class!

If you were drooling over the great October Afternoon deal I got HERE, you might want to check THIS out! ScrapbookSteals.com has another OA deal today, this time with their EGGNOG COLLECTION KIT.

I am broke, baby! But if you’re so inclined, go take advantage of that deal before it sells out! Seems like a lot of fun to scrap the holidays with – maybe even do your whole December Daily with it?

I also just heard about a free scrapbooking class that I *NEED* to take and I’ll bet you do, too: “SCRAPBOOKING YOUR BABY’S FIRST YEAR” with Nicole Samuels. {If you’re one of those annoying scrappers who already has all their children’s first year of life documented from first cry to first birthday, gah! Just move along. I mean, really?!?}

I can’t find a photo/ad to copy over but this is the text from the class description:

document the magical moments.

In the flurry of adjusting to life with a new baby, it can be tempting to shelve your scrapbooking plans and leave your photographs in their digital formats. But those moments only happen once! Learn a system for getting those memories down and creating a scrapbook you’ll cherish for a lifetime.

Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year with Nicole Samuels will help you sift through the photos, moments, and memories and decide which ones belong in your memory books. You’ll learn how to use Studio Calico kits and products to create clean, modern scrapbook layouts that highlight the milestones and relationships that emerge in your baby’s first year. Nicole will show you how to create scrapbooks that both focus on the big events, like sitting up, and the unique ones that simply mean a lot to your family.

Time is fleeting and precious, don’t let the first year of the important child in your life go unaccounted for. Develop a system for documenting those magical moments in Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year.

If you click over at the link above, you can watch an intro video, too. The class is being broadcast for FREE on 10-30-14 by CREATIVE LIVE; they do tons of free and paid classes that are absolutely top-quality. You should check them out if you haven’t already. {I posted HERE about classes by scrappers Lain Ehmann and Becky Higgins in the past}. If you miss the live broadcast – and the free re-broadcast they usually do immediately following the live one – or you love Nicole’s class so much you want to buy it, it’s only $29.

Speaking of Becky, I see in the class schedule that Nicole is going to Skype with BECKY HIGGINS and ALI EDWARDS, two of my favorite scrappers! If nothing else, go RSVP for the free class so you can get a Studio Calico coupon. When you sign up, you’ll also be notified in the future when this “Scrapbooking Baby’s First Year” class will be re-broadcast again for free.

Man, I need this class! I have children who are well past babies and (gulp!) no baby books! I’ve even purchased the awesome PROJECT LIFE BABY KITS kits from Becky and gathered all the photos and memorabilia into one place. I just haven’t sat down and gotten started. I really wish I would’ve done it sooner but, hey, what’re ya’ gonna’ do? I’ll be watching this free class to get my bottom in gear, maybe even buy it afterward so I can keep getting kicked in the pants to do this super-important project.

Okay, there. I’ve saved you tons of money. What more do you want from me?!?! Have a lovely day.

Project Life: Mega Sale on “Project Life” Items Right Now!

Yep, the big sale is at my favorite place to buy Project Life stuff: Amazon.com.

There are 28 different PROJECT LIFE items marked down a whopping 40 to 50%! That doesn’t happen very often so I wanted to make sure to let you know about it.

Here are some of the sale items – you can click on the bolded title to be taken right to the item on Amazon:

Project Life Childhood Mini Kit – Wellington Edition. WOW. Only $6 for a kit that usually sells for $15. I’d buy this in a hot second except that I already have it, hee hee.

Project Life Baby Edition Core Kit, Designer Paper, and Month Dividers

Project Life Designer Paper Baby Edition for Him, Olive Edition and Seafoam Edition. They’re $3.59 – 3.99 for 24 double-sided sheets of 12×12 paper! That’s only 17 cents a sheet and you KNOW that’s a great deal.

Project Life 12 X 12 D-ring – Classic Faux Leather Albums in Cherry, Cinnamon, Kiwi, Rain, and Grey. Here’s the luscious Cherry color. Oooohh La La! Purdy!

Personally, I’m being oh-so-tempted by these 3 sale items:

1. Designer Paper – Seafoam Edition

I didn’t jump on the Project Life bandwagon until 2013 so I missed the release of Seafoam altogether. It was designed by one of my favorite bloggers, ELISE BLAHA. {If you go to her blog and do a Search on “Seafoam”, you can follow the whole design process; it’s pretty cool}. I love the simple, graphic designs and the colors that aren’t typical but go together so well.

2. 12 X 12 D-ring – Classic Faux Leather Album – Rain

I love blues and greens and this would be great for my All About Me / My Childhood scrapbooks. Albums like this usually sell for $30 so $15 is an awesome price.

3. Mini Album – Cinnamon

It’s hard to find these mini albums on sale anywhere and half-price is unheard of. I love the warm color of the Cinnamon album . . . mmmm. Even sounds nice :)

So go check out the PROJECT LIFE Mega Sale at Amazon. I would hurry because one of the items I heard was on sale is already . . . erm . . . NOT on sale. You know how fickle Amazon can be.
