Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to a very special edition of Friday Faves!
While normally my Friday Faves posts are an opportunity for me to share a little bit more about some of my Faves that show up on my Faves layouts, today I wanted to share some of the fun things I am currently working on outside of NettioDesigns. Things have definitely been a bit quiet around here lately with my recent vacation and all, but I can assure things have definitely not been quiet behind the scenes! I’ve been a busy little bee!
Here are three places around the interwebs you should check out if you’re wanting some more Nettio awesomeness:
1) Paperclipping Digi Show Episode 49: Making It Look Like Paper
The day before we left for our trip to New York City, I was lucky enough to be a guest on episode 49 of the Paperclipping Digi Show talking about tips and tricks for making your digital pages look more like paper pages. We had a lively discussion about layering, shadowing and uh, wheelbarrows, haha, and I even shared some of my scrapbooking quirks that come from being a digi scrapper who didn’t come from a paper scrapbooking background.
It’s a really fun episode and best of all it’s FREE so if you want to hear a little bit more about how my brain works when making my digi pages look like paper pages, check it out.
Oh and if you enjoyed the show, would you go here and leave a little love in the comments? It lets the team know you appreciate all their hardwork and your comment may even get read on a future episode of the Paperclipping Digi Show!
2) Masterful Scrapbooking Design July 2011: Fast Starts
I mentioned this on the Paperclipping Digi Show but in case you haven’t heard yet, I’m excited to announce that the lovely and talented Debbie Hodge over at Masterful Scrapbooking Design has invited me to be one of their Guest Teachers for the July 2011 class.
If you’re new to Masterful Scrapbooking Design, it’s a membership education site where each month there is a theme related to one aspect of scrapbooking design. Over the course of the month you get an in-depth seminar in both audio and PDF format, articles from the guest teachers, two big inspiration galleries and four webinars featuring each of the guest teachers – all for the amazingly low price of $12.50/month.
The theme for July is Fast Starts so we’re going to be talking all about ideas for speeding up your scrapbooking from organization to work habits to making smart choices about your design.
I’ll admit when Debbie first told me about the topic, I was a bit nervous because speed scrapbooking isn’t really what I do. If you were hoping I’m going to reveal my secrets for creating my paper-lovin’ pages in under 30 minutes, I’m afraid you’ll be sadly disappointed, haha.
But I’m actually really excited about this class because it’s not so much about speed as it about smart scrapping. Looking for ways to approach your scrapbooking process in a smarter, more efficient way. And I am definitely ALL about that. I am always looking for ways I can speed up the parts of the scrapbooking process I don’t love so I can focus on the parts that I do.
So while you won’t be getting any paper-lovin’ under 30 minute pages from me, what you will be getting is insight into the tricks I use on every scrapbooking page that help me to more efficiently create the layered, paper lovin’ I’m known for.
Of course if my tips alone aren’t enough to sell you on the class, there are also three other fabulous guest teachers, including my fellow Sugarbabe, the amazingly talented Celeste, who I know will have awesome time-saving tips for you as well. Read more about the other guest teachers here.
If you’re one of those scrapbookers who put time management and/or design as something you struggle with, I highly highly recommend you go sign up for the July class. At $12.50 it’s an absolute steal.
Sign up here.
3) Sweet Shoppe Designs: My Top Five Faves From My First Trip to the Big Apple
You didn’t really think I’d do a Friday Faves post without any including any faves did you?
Today I am guest blogging over on the Sweet Shoppe Designs blog as part of our 365 Days of Bliss and I’m sharing my top five favorite things from our recent trip to New York City.
Go check it out here on the Sweet Shoppe blog!
And that’s it for this edition of Friday Faves! Anyone have any exciting weekend plans? Adam’s had a LONG week at work, including several 4am to 8pm days so while I’m hoping for some fun adventures this weekend, it’s entirely possible I’ll just be hanging out while he sleeps. LOL!
Have a great weekend everyone!
