Just a reminder, this weekend our team will be at the Lancaster, PA Creating Keepsakes Convention. We will be offering some wonderful workshops and have tons of great deals in our booth, so if you're in the area, come by and see us!
Today's project comes to us from Sr. Creative Director Carolyn Peeler. She says:
I have been experimenting more and more with combining bookbinding techniques with scrapbooking supplies which has been a really fun exploration.
The album shown here uses the Melissa Frances "Classic Elegance" collection, which is one of my all time favorite collections in the whole wide world. We were right on point trendwise with this collection when it was released 18 months ago. The combination of pastels with the crispness of the black accents makes it such an eye catching collection of papers and embellishments.
Our friends at www.scrapbook.com made a nice video showcasing our "The Sweet Life" collection and we thought it would be nice to share it here with you too! So, here's an in depth peek at the individual products from the line:
We are pleased to share that Sr. Creative Director Carolyn Peeler will be traveling to France October 16-19 to teach at Version Scrap Lyon!
She will be teaching 4 wonderful workshops packed with Melissa Frances product. There will be bookbinding, wall hangings, and mini albums galore! Here's a peek at the fun Christmas mini album class she will be offering. Imagine how nice it will be to get a head start on your holiday scrapbooking...imagine having an album ready to go - all you will have to do is put your photos in!
As an added bonus, Carolyn speaks French, so for those of you who are nervous about taking a workshop with an English speaking teacher, Carolyn will be teaching in both English and French to accommodate students of either language!
Visit the VERSION SCRAP website to register for classes! We look forward to meeting some of our French Melissa Frances fans there!
We hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today we have a really beautiful layout to share with you from Russian paper crafter Alyona-lilavadi Savinova.
She used papers from our discontinued 5th Avenue collection (while it is sold out many places, the specific paper Alyona used is still available here at scrapbook.com), and one of our resin accents to create a keepsake layout commemorating her wedding.
What a great way to display your wedding photo and remember the moment every time you pass by the project in your home!
Thank you Alyona-lilavadi Savinova.

You can sign up online (See link to the website above), or in person at the event. We hope to see a lot of you there!
We always love layouts by design team member Emeline Seet. She uses a lot of layering to create really demensional and detailed projects. And today's project is just another example of her signature style. Emeline shared:
I used vellum and white lace and overlaid them over pattern papers to create a muted toned effect. A great idea to help prints on pattern papers blend together.
What's a girl to do when you have forgotten to get a gift for a special occasion? Simple, make a stunning gift bag, pop a gift card into it, and you're set!
Today we have a cute project from Rachel McAffee who shares the basic steps she used to create this project.
Cut out The Sweet Life journal cards and using a rounded edge punch, punch all corners of the journal cards. Layer the journal cards on top of the goodie bag and adhere using Zip Dry. Adhere a pearl on top of a kraft heart sticker and attach to the goodie bag. Adhere two rows of satin pink ribbon towards the bottom of the bad using glue and let dry. Fill the bag with goodies and top off with gift wrapping shred.
