Pretty Paper Party :: A New Online Scrapbooking Class

pretty paper party :: a new online scrapbooking class
You may have noticed, I am rather fond of pretty paper. What you might not know is when I say ‘pretty paper’ aloud, it is almost always immediately followed by a wistful sigh. Pretty paper inspires me. It’s such a simple thing and yet such a fabulous bonus in life. Why yes, I do have significant gratitude for pretty paper. So much that this is all leading to a brand new online scrapbooking class.

If you are also a fan of such things, I invite you to a party. The Pretty Paper Party. A four week celebration of pasting pretty paper to other pretty papers in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Would you care to join me?

The party kicks off next Monday, and lasts four weeks. Specifically, that’s the 17th of October to the 12th of November, but as with all shimelle.com classes, participants have full and permanent access to all the class materials so you can access them at any time. Party favours include…
…25 PDF prompts loaded with brand new and exclusive scrapbook pages and papercraft projects.
…an exclusive video series to show specific techniques step by step.
…members-only message board to mix with other party-goers and share your work.

And of course there are also some other goodies along the way, because the best of parties always have an element of surprise to keep you inspired!

The guest list to the party is shaping up to be rather special too! I’m very excited to be highlighting the work of dozens of my favourite scrapbookers from all over the globe. These special guest artists have shared their love of pretty paper and created brand new scrapbook pages to share with you, and I know you’ll love their tips and the variety of crafting styles they bring to the party! Single pages, double pages, minibooks, cards, simple elegance and artful complication? They are all coming to the party and hoping to meet you there!

You don’t need any special supplies at all. We’ll be using what we have on hand and busting that stash! You will want plenty of pictures ready to scrap, and they can be any theme so it’s perfect for what suits your needs: work on one themed album or make a stack of pages, each on a completely different topic.

pretty paper party :: a new online scrapbooking class
Every papercraft lover is cordially invited to the party – but how do you know if this is the perfect date for your social calendar?
…do you want to make more from your investment in your craft supplies (especially your paper stash)?
…do you have a big stack of pretty paper (colours or patterns) that you know you should be making into beautiful things but somehow it hasn’t happened yet?
…would you love to learn secrets of mixing patterned papers, creating colour combinations or bringing new life to the oldest sheets in your pretty paper collection?
….do you love to scrapbook and love paper and would just love the idea of creating with a group of people for four weeks?
If any of those apply to you, then make room on your calendar and join us for Pretty Paper Party!

The party starts one week from today, so send your RSVP by signing up and get ready for all sorts of creative fun! You can register in your choice of British pounds or US dollars – just click the button for the currency you prefer. If neither of those are your currency, you are still welcome to the party! Just choose whichever you prefer and the payment system will automatically convert it to your currency when you pay.

You can pay your class registration by credit/debit card or Paypal account, and both options are shown on the screen that follows. Please be sure to enter a valid email address as part of your payment so your prompts can be delivered to your inbox. If you would like to gift the class to a friend, please provide her email address. (You can email it to me if you like.) Class registrations are processed by an actual person (me!) and can take up to 24 hours, though it’s usually much faster.

I’m proud to donate £1 of every class registration to the Plan Girls’ Fund, which supports girls in developing nations, provided education, improving living conditions and passionately working to break the cycle of poverty and gender discrimination. The donation from September’s class equated to a year of schooling and living expenses for five girls, and I’m excited to continue to support this amazing cause.

I’d love to see you at the party! Get clicking and sign up – for this party, it’s great to be fashionably early!

More details and sneak peeks as the party draws near!

    Hi Shimelle, I’m so excited about this class! My collection of papers grows faster than my inspiration for creating layouts. I suspect I’m not the only one though.

  12. Iliana Says:

    I work part-time and homeschool a first grader. Can I view the class at any time?

  13. NancyLee Says:

  14. Neelu Says:

    let me load my PP account and I’am in :))

  15. tilla Says:

    Ooh – I have yet again signed up for another Shimelle class ! This does sound more like my thing, because after 2 incomplete mini books, (LSNED 2010, Explore 2011) I think I should stick to pages ! Looking forward to some pretty paper fun…

  16. pauline Says:

    I cannot wait for Class to start – sounds great!! I just managed to get loads of stuff back from storage including ALL the photos I took 1996 – 2001 so finding a photo for the projects won’t be a problem!! ;)

  17. Chipper Says:

    I’m already in too … REALLY looking forward to it. If I didn’t look scrapping in my PJ’s so much you might have even convinced me to wear a party dress!!! LOL Bring on the paper and scissors.

  18. Jennie Says:

    I’m in and excited as always!

  19. scrappysue Says:

    There was never any doubt I would sign up, LOL! Really looking forward to the “party”, better get my scrappy room organised and dig out my pretty papers, yay!

  20. Hodo Says:

    Wow…just signed up for my first EVER shimelle.com class and it looks like it’s going to be a great one ins:D

  21. LizzieMade Says:

    Oh I love this post, Shimelle – the wording is so fun – “pasting pretty paper to other pretty papers in an aesthetically pleasing manner” – sublime! (well, quite fab anyway…)
    The photo of you is cool too – I love your party frock!
    As for the Course… sigh….I sooooo want to join in, but I can’t – not just now… I have to write 6 courses, make samples for the courses, plus make my Christmas stock for my shop…
    And of course there is Life, that tends to get in the way and stop me doing all the above – including a fab course with Shimelle, I’m afraid.
    I will be thinking of you all… But Next Time, I will join in!
    Of course… I could just sign up, invest my $18 and keep all the prompts til I have some “spare time”…
    Ooo, why not, eh? And then some money goes to Plan as well…
    Count Me (kind-of) In!
