Stamp & Scrapbook Expo Sketch Workshop

Hey friends, I'm so excited to tell you about the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo sketch workshops that I will be teaching.  First of all, I cannot tell you how over the moon excited I am about this. Teaching my own workshops has been a goal of mine for a VERY long time. I am so excited to be teaching a class that I'm passionate about. From start to finish, this class is mine! I've worked so hard picking products, designing the projects, writing the instructions, designing the sketch, and creating promotional content for the class. I've been working with the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo team on their blog for a couple of years now. I adore my Stamp & Scrapbook Expo team! They've captured my heart! I'm grateful every.single.day that I get to work with them. Guest Artist Becki Adams at Stamp & Scrapbook Expo #Beckiadams #SSBE2017 #SSBEworkshops
The first event I am teaching at this year is in Schaumburg, Il. This will be my first visit to the Chicago area. Have you ever been to the Chicago area? What should be on my "must see" list? I know my first stop will be for Chicago style PIZZA!! I'm a pizza girl, I'm sure pizza will never be the same to me after I have Chicago style pizza.
Okay, enough about pizza, onto the whole reason I will be in Illinois, my workshops!!!
While I'm at the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg, I will be teaching 2 workshops. The first workshop is "One Sketch Three Ways". This class is all about using the same sketch in three different ways. In the class we'll make three layouts using products from PhotoPlay paper. Don't worry, If you don't finish all three layouts you'll take the product home with a step-by-step instruction sheet, photos of the finished layouts, AND the exclusive sketch that I designed for this class. (I'll be teaching this workshop on Saturday as well.) There are a few tickets left for this class. If you're in the Chicago/Schaumburg area, I'd love to meet you and have you in my class. You can purchase a ticket HERE. Make sure to come say hello, I cannot wait to meet my blog readers!

I don't want those of you who don't live in the Chicago area out so, I've created a couple of videos where I talk about the workshop AND included a process video of a layout that I created with a sketch.

Here's a video from my YouTube channel. (You can find a link to all the supplies, and the sketch in the notes of the video.)

 The second video I created is on the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo YouTube channel. (I tell one of my most embarrassing moments in this video ;) There are a few more details about the layout and the class on the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog.
Tune in next week, I'll be back here to tell you about the second workshop that I'll be teaching at Stamp & Scrapbook Expo (this workshop is almost sold out *yay*). Thank you for stopping by, I'll see you again tomorrow

How to Make Fabric Feather Embellishments

 Do you like to create your own embellishments? I love to but I don't often take the time to do so. Recently, I did take the time to create my own fabric feather embellishments. I used the Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cut machine and the birds of a feather die. I had so much fun creating them I created WAY too many of them. (I've added the extra feathers to my stash so watch for more projects with these cute little feathers.) 

 All you'll need to create these embellishments is a Platinum 6 die cut machinewhite fun foam, fabric, and the birds of a feather die and my sewing machine.
After I created the embellishments I added them to a scrapbook layout. You can see this entire layout come together with the feather embellishments on my YouTube channel:
I LOVE how this layout (with handmade embellishments) came together.
If you haven't done so before, you should try making your own embellishments. Thanks for stopping by today. I'll see you again soon :)
