Design team member Sandra challenges us this week to show our tickets. Trains to movies, concerts to planes, stamps to paper – let’s see your tickets!

I was inspired by a recent museum outing, where we certainly had a ticket to fun...
I made my own embellishments by embossing up some colorful tickets...
...then adding some fun paper rolls and floss!

And there we have it! Our little day trip...

Documented!

The pice point is really accessible if you are on a crafty budget. - Maribethm

Want a few more details?
Here you go...

With this course, you will receive instant access to the following:
  • Two intro videos, covering supplies and thoughts about choosing photos
  • One in-depth technique video
  • Three start to finish layout process videos
  • That comes to a total of 6 videos, with just under 2 hours of video content. 113 minutes to be exact.
  • A PDF download of course content.
  • Acces to me via email for any and all questions, ponderings, etc...
  • Ability to download videos to your own personal computer or compatible device for permanent archiving and viewing
  • Three exclusive layouts that are only available to students in this class and are guaranteed not to be shared elsewhere

Questions and Answers:
How are these videos different from what you already post for free on YouTube?
  • While I do share a bit about my process in those videos, these will be much more in-depth, with even some close up, zoomed in shots of my process and technique. Also, my YouTube videos stand alone. These six videos are designed to work together, building upon one another with ideas and concepts to create a comprehensive course.
What supplies do I need?
  • Supplies for this class are covered in-depth in the first course video, but before purchasing this class, I suggest you make sure to have some basic white paint and some sort of wet color medium (watercolors are my go-to). I will also be using paint brushes, a spray bottle, waterproof black pens, and a palette knife. However, there are many, many options for substitutions and those are discussed in the first video of the class.
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
  • While I feel this class is an extremely good value for the price, I would not want anyone to be unhappy with their purchase. If that is indeed the case, please contact me directly and we can work together to resolve any issue you may be having.
Speaking of price, how much is the course?
  • Class is available at an introductory price of $8. This price is good for a limited time only!
  • Beginning August 20, the class will be available at it's normal price of $10.
How do I buy this course and access my materials?
  • You may purchase this course in my ETSY SHOP HERE. Upon purchase, you will be sent an email with the PDF download. This PDF also includes the private classroom page link as well as the video passcode. If you have any difficulties with the email, the links, or the PDF... simply email me (soaphouse@gmail.com) and we will resolve any and all issues asap!

#FlipScrapGo Updates!

Hello There! Time to share some of my recent #FlipScrapGo posts from Instagram. If you aren't too sure what I am talking about, have a look at this post for more explanation.

All caught up? Great!

Let's have a look...

That little Fuse Tool is SO handy! I love how it worked for scrapping my daughter's recent artwork!
Next up, some fun letter altering for Cocoa Daisy Kit Club....


So many possibilities!
And next up, I needed a way to "scrap" some treasured Christmas Cards... Fuse Tool to the rescue!


So easy!
And last, but not least... a look at how I used a Dear Lizzy Journal Cover as the featured embellishment of a recent Cocoa Daisy page...



Yay fun!

Home Grown

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.

Design team member Michelle has a summer challenge for us this week! She says: So many things have grown in the Summer. Inspiration can be found in backyard gardens and jars of freshly canned veggies or maybe children who have grown like weeds. Or an idea that’s just taken root. There’s a lot of room for growth. (Pun intended)
So let’s see how a homegrown summer is inspiring you!

I have been working on a bit of heritage memory keeping (more on that soon) and recently came across some photos of my mother while she was expecting me. As she is tending to her beloved garden in one of the pictures, this was the perfect week to scrap about that!

Using several of my favorite supplies, I doodled up some flowers and houses to accent my page...
And layered my photos on top...
Home Grown, indeed!
So, now it's your turn! Get your crafty plans on and be sure to link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp.com.
