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.

Scrapbook Haul: October Afternoon “Apple Cider” from ScrapbookSteals.com

As I mentioned HERE, I recently ordered the “Apple Cider” line from ScrapbookSteals.com. It arrived a bit ago; I’m just getting around to posting pics.

You know how sometimes with online shopping, you really love something on the screen so you order it. But then you receive it and it’s not as great as you thought it would be?

Well, that was NOT the case with October Afternoon’s “Apple Cider” line! Ha ha, I had you fooled there, didn’t I?

I mean, look at the extreme LOVELINESS below!

I have to admit, I spent a good deal of time fondling . . . ahem, petting . . . what I meant was PUTTING my new goodies away. Jeez. What did you think was going on in the hizzy!?! Something borderline illegal? Just because I made sure I was the only one home at the time. There is nothing suspicious about that at all, no sirree Bob! Just a regular ol’ night at Scrapbook Obsession’s place.

So anyway – this is a gorgeous line in person. It’s everything I love about October Afternoon – nice thick double-sided papers with unique designs that are so usable, fun embellishments, great colors, and nice sayings. AND PUFFY STICKERS.

I’m just not sure what more you could ask really.

I really look forward to scrapping my Autumn photos with this amazing scrapbook line. Now if it would just get out of the 100s here . . .

Hope you had a great week & enjoy your weekend!
