The Beglau Family

August 14, 2010
The Beglau Family got together for a Pot Luck meal, and lots of talking and laughing!  Thanks to my husband's brother, Dave, we all managed to get together.  The weather was too humid for me to be able to attend so the family agreed to come here!  I was pretty happy about that, but honestly it was so hot and humid that I don't think anyone minded that we were not outside at a park!

I created some pages using Stampin' Up!'s digital paper crafting program, My Digital Studio.  I still love to use paper and adhesive, but I have to admit, I am starting to become more and more converted to the ease of this amazing program.  It's so great for sharing!  I hope you enjoy these pages!

OK....I admit it!  The last page is my favorite! 
Don't I have a handsome family?  LOL

Did You MIss Out?

Free Classes - projects revealed.

In the last week there were two FREE Classes at 'The Stamp Sell-er'.  I love offering a chance for everyone to attend at No Cost, although I can't do it very often.  If you missed this opportunity be sure to sign up for my emails so you don't miss the next one!

Here's a snippet of what we created

CARD MAKING 101 - A class for beginners.  I covered all the 'basic' info on how to cut, mat, stamp, and punch your way to a great hand made card to send to family or friends.

This sample taught basic stamping, how to combine Designer Series Paper, use Ribbon, and the great new Owl Punch!  Everyone loved watching the owl pieces fly out of the punch!

The class made two other fun cards where they learned to mat an image so other objects could be stamped behind each other, and a third card that used a Sizzix Embossing Folder.  Plus, if you weren't there you missed meeting some really FUN new Friends!  It was a full house and we laughed a lot!

SCRAPBOOKING 101   This class taught the basic and more half the class had no clue where to begin when they arrived, but when they left they had handouts with information on how to keep photos safe, samples of scrap layout ideas, and a finished page....with lots of extra pieces to create at home! 

Here's one of the samples I made for them to copy...

....but nobody's was like mine!  I was so impressed the different designs that came for the same products!  What a group of beginners can do always confirms the fact that anyone can scrapbook!  If you had attended this Free Class you would have been right there creating your own original design!

DON'T MISS THE NEXT CLASS!  Check my schedule to see what's coming up!
