Online Scrapbook Classes: Free Bonus October Scrapinar with Layle Koncar AND True Scrap 7 Discount Expires 9/30

Dang, I keep forgetting to tell you about Lain’s events lately! Already missed True Scrap Planner Love on 09-19-15. If interested, you can buy the replay HERE.

Now it’s time for a free bonus scrapinar in October 2015 called “Pick a Card, Any Card” by Layle Koncar.

The Pick a Card project is a replay from True Scrap 5, which normally sells for $13, but you’ll get it for free on September 30! Plus you’ll get to hear some details and get a feel for what True Scrap 7 is all about.

Yes, you CAN use those 3×4 and 4×6 pocket cards in your 12×12 layouts! Pocket Pages are all the rage but that doesn’t mean you have to pass up all those cute cards and Pocket Page accessories if you prefer the larger, more traditional layouts. Layle will showcase how to use these items in your larger layouts and has nine different ideas and project examples to help you bridge the gap between 12×12 layouts and Pocket Page scrapbooking.

Wanna’ join in? You can sign up HERE.

And we’re almost to the deadline to get an early bird discount on “True Scrap 7” – yikes! Yep, it expires tomorrow {Wed. 09-30-15}.

“True Scrap 7 is the universe’s premier live, virtual paper crafting event, bringing together the most talented instructors with the smartest and most incredible students! Now in its 5th year, True Scrap events have produced hundreds of hours of content and educated thousands of students. True Scrap 7, on October 23 and 24, promises to continue the tradition with instructors including:

Becki Adams – Scrapbooking “On the Go”
Julie Fei-Fan Balzer – Patterned Papers by YOU
Lisa Bearnson – Embellish Your Story: Tips for Stepping Up Your Work and Your Words
Kelli Crowe – For the Love of (Scrap)Books
Noell Hyman – Scrapbookers, Unite! Using Harmony and Contrast to Create Unity
Layle Koncar – More IS Better: Tips, Tricks & Techniques for Adding More Photos to Your Layouts
Maggie Massey – Organize, Document, Display: A Celebration Album
Kathy Cano-Murillo – From Paper to Petals: Mixed Media Paper Flowers

If you’d like more info or to register, just click HERE.

Early bird price is $99 until Wednesday 09-30-15; then it goes to full price of $199. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya’!

If you register by 9/30, that breaks down to $12 per class. Given the caliber of these instructors, I think that’s more than worth it.

If you’re able to make the events live – like the Friday night PJ party and the classes – they’re even more awesome. People from all over the world are online together, chatting about the classes, joking around, and sharing ideas. You can ask questions directly to the instructors, get their supply lists, and see them complete the project firsthand.

I’ve had a great experience any time I’ve attended one of the True Scrap events. I’m super excited about seeing Lisa Bearnson there for the first time. Kelli Crowe and Layle Koncar are always a hoot (you’ll see what I mean about Layle if you listen to the FREE SCRAPINAR with her on 09-30-15). I’m not familiar with Maggie Massey; will have to go look her up.

Remember, with all of Lain’s events, you get a replay when it’s over. But you have to sign-up first, even for the free scrapinars. Over 100 people have already signed up for “True Scrap 7”; it’s gonna’ be fun!

Memory Works: New Line by Simple Stories “I {Heart} Summer”

Have you heard about the latest line by SIMPLE STORIES!?!? It’s called “I {Heart} Summer” and it’s a new favorite! You can see the entire line HERE on the Simple Stories blog.

Here’s a layout **from the Simple Stories blog** to tease you:

Isn’t it lovely?

And did you know that Simple Stories has a new marketing director? It’s a name you may recognize from the scrapbooking industry: LAYLE KONCAR. {Pronounced like “Gail” with an “L”}

And she is ~ to quote the name of another SS line ~ AWESOME! I’ve seen her doing great outreach around the scrapbooking interwebs and I’m sure she’s doing more amazing things behind the scenes as well. For instance, check out THIS THREAD on the Two Peas message board. Isn’t that cool?

Speaking of how cool Layle is, look at what she sent me ~ a pre-release box of the new line, “I {Heart} Summer” !!!



Isn’t that amazing!?!? I was so excited to see this line in person. Believe you me, I unwrapped and fondled every stinkin’ piece, LOL. Let’s just say there was a lot of paper sniffing goin’ on in the hizzy ;)

Recently, I was fittin’ to scrapbook some photos from a weekend we spent at the beach. I wanted to get the photos and journaling in an album while the amazing weekend was still fresh in my mind.

But once I heard this pretty box was on it’s way to me, I put that project on hold sista’! I didn’t think on the surface that this line would be perfect for beach photos. It brought to mind more summer, picnic, BBQ, fishing, and swimming pool pages like these:


But when I took a closer look at it, I realized how perfect it is for my beach weekend photos. There are images of surfboards, beach umbrella, “Beach” sign, sailboat, anchor, flip flops, clouds, fishies, and lots of distressed, beachy-looking wood. I can’t wait to start scrapping!

So do you {heart} this new Simple Stories line as much as I do? What are your favorite pieces? Do you have any photos in mind to use it with? I would love to hear your project ideas :)

PS: This line ships to vendors the week of 05-20-13. Of course, I would be really honored if you’d order through my MEMORY WORKS SITE. Once it’s in stock, you can find it HERE. Thank *U*
