Stuff to Scrap 2012 Retreat and All New Digital Scrapbooking Classes!!!

If you haven't noticed, there have been some changes in the STS forum & one of those changes is the addition of a Stuff to Scrap Course section, where you can participate in a variety of online courses to improve your scrapbooking skills. The first course that we have available is the 'All About Me' Journaling Class which is starting this Sunday, October 2nd so you need to hurry on over & sign up. The cost for the 8 week course is only $10.00 but you'll have access to the private forum for 10 weeks as we all know how life can get in the way at times!

In addition to the assignments, which will be posted twice a week, you'll also receive 2 templates, and a FREE kit of your choice from the Stuff to Scrap store. Also included in your class is a exclusive coupon code to use at Persnickity Prints to get 20% off your purchase if you decide to print your layouts through them. Click on the flier to go to the forum to sign up.

Our next available class is the 'Tell Your Travel' Journaling Class which is going to run a little differently from the previous class. This is a self paced 4 week course so there is no start date but you will only have access to the private forum for 6 weeks. There will be 2 assignments per week so the extra weeks will help you catch up if you need it. The cost of the course is only $6.00 & you'll have access to the private forum as soon as you sign up so make sure you're ready to go! Click on the flier to go to the forum to sign up.

Finally, you need to save the date for April 27 & 28, 2012 as that's when the Scrapalicious Digi-Retreat 2012 hosted by Stuff to Scrap will be taking place! The retreat will be held at the Comfort Suites in Schaumburg, Illinois located just 30 miles northwest of Chicago. I know that there are a lot of forum members already planning to go so come & join us, it's going to be a great time! Click on the flier to go to the retreat section of the forum to find out more information on the retreat.

If you're planning to join us in Schaumburg, tickets for the retreat are already on sale for $99.00 until December 31, 2011. After January 1, 2012 the ticket price will go up to $125.00 so this would be a great Christmas present to yourself! Nicole has arranged for a block of rooms at Comfort Suites in Schaumburg at $79/night (+tax) which is a great rate for Chicagoland. For more information on booking hotel room, please see the information posted in the store. If you plan on flying into Chicago, the closest airport to Schaumburg is O'Hare & there are always plenty of taxis & shuttles between the airport & hotels.

We hope to see a large turnout of forum members & designers, I know that most of us living within a reasonable driving distance are planning on attending. Check out the FAQs thread for general information & the Roomie Wanted thread if you're looking for someone to share a room with. The Chicagoland members have started a thread with stuff to do in & around Chicago; we'll keep it updated as the date comes closer. We hope you can come join us at the Scrapalicious Digi-Retreat 2012!

Fall is in the air and this kit is perfect for all those fall layouts.

Step Right Up! to my September Build A Kit

Step right up digiscrappers! It is time for the September Build A Kit collection at Stuff To Scrap. This month's theme was the carnival and circus, with a bright and cheery color palette. My collection is called Midway. The collection contains an element pack, paper pack, torn paper pack, and 2 quick page sets. There are several other designers that participated this month also, so you can get enough to scrap all your summertime fun photos!
Do you have great carnival or circus theme photos, but little time to scrap them? Then one of my Midway Quick Page Sets is the perfect solution. Just plop your photos behind, add a title and any journaling, and you are done! Each quick page is 12x12 inch, 300 ppi and are created using my September BAK, Midway.
If you buy 3 or more of any of the BAK collection, you get 50% off them all. You can mix and match from any of the designer's collections.
And now some inspirational layouts from myself and my creative team members. ;-)

Chugga, Chugga, Chugga, Choo, Choo!!!

It's time for the monthly STS blog train! The theme this month is all about A Little Me Time. For me, that means my time in the morning, while the house is still quiet and I sit and drink my morning coffee in peace. ;-) Click on the preview below to download my portion and leave some love if you have time.
