guest teaching and LOVING it!

about a month ago, i got an email from debbie hodge, asking me if i'd be interested in being a guest teacher in april for masterful scrapbook design, a monthly class sponsored by get it scrapped! i wrote her back saying i wasn't really sure the topic was one i was qualified to teach, i don't consider myself a scrapper that uses a lot of patterned paper. she wrote back, assuring me that indeed the subject was right up my alley. so i accepted and began gathering layouts that would fit the bill. it was a really interesting process, i saw that i really do use patterned paper, but that only started when i began scrapping with my studio calico kits, before that i was heavily into cardstock. i don't feel comfortable using big sheets of it, but i do punch it, hand cut it and strip it. yesterday i had the pleasure of discussing my designs with debbie and tami taylor in a live webinar. it was really fun, i had been so nervous, even working it into a dream i had the night before.  i needn't have worried. 
you can still sign up to take the class featuring celeste smith, cindy liebel, wilna furstenberg and myself. and as a bonus, if you sign up this month, you can free access to one other month's archives for free! kind of cool :)

so if you're curious about my unique approach to patterned papers, it's a great deal at $10.

and apparently i passed muster because i just got another email from debbie asking if i'd be interested in teaching may's topic: using your stash. hee! you can also sign up for that as well.

thanks to debbie for asking, it's been a very good thing for me.
