There are online classes for everything these days, and Shimelle has been teaching online scrapbooking classes for years - but she's decided it's time to kick it up a bit and go from online class to a four-week online party, and you're invited. Pretty Paper Party (http://www.shimelle.com/paper/1258/pretty-paper-party-a-new-online-scrapbooking-class/) is the party to attend if you have a collection of paper stacked up for a rainy day, if you have more scraps of paper than you know what to do with (but you know you don't want to throw them away!) and if you've ever put a piece of paper back in your stash because it was just too special for the photos at hand. Through printable prompts and tutorial videos, Shimelle and dozens of special party guests will share beautiful and innovative techniques you can achieve with the paper you have already collected.
Not only does this party sound like my kind of party, but I also have the honor of being a special party guest!
My mother taught me never to attend a party empty-handed, so here's a peek at what I'll be bringing:
If you're curious about what I'll be doing with these, and you would like me to hook you up with an invite, too, then you have come to the right place!
All you need to do to be entered for a chance to win a class pass to Pretty Paper Party is to leave a comment on this post, answering one simple question: If you could turn any sheet of patterned paper into a party dress, what paper would it be? Mention the name of the paper and the manufacturer (and a link, if you wish), and be sure to leave your email address too (if it isn't automatically linked to your name).
One lucky winner will be chosen by 6:00 p.m. Hawaii time (11:00 p.m. CST) tomorrow, Monday, October 16, and will be announced shortly thereafter in a follow-up post.
Though Shimelle's class officially begins tomorrow, she has assured me that it is perfectly acceptable to be fashionably late to this particular party. There are no class deadlines and every member of the class receives permanent access to all materials.
Just think -- by tomorrow evening, YOU may be that fashionably late guest entering the Pretty Paper Party, turning heads and making quite the impression. Wuh oh. That did it. I'm picturing Molly Ringwald in a pink prom dress and hearing OMD on repeat now.
