A Very Special Party (and a giveaway!!)

Who loves pretty patterned paper?? ME!!

Who loves to look at, touch, admire, drool over, organize, cut up, (or not cut up because it is too pretty) pretty patterned paper? I DO!!!

Who has more stash then you will use in the forseeable future (or ever)? Uh, doesn't everyone? Hee hee!

Well, if you agree with me on any of these, there is a special party you simply MUST attend!

Do you know Shimelle? You probably do, but in case not, Shimelle is an incredible scrapbooker who has been teaching online classes for years! Her classes are fun and informative and she has a great forum to keep everyone chatting together! I took her Learn Something New class two Septembers ago and it was FAB!!

She has decided though to kick it up a bit and instead of just an online class, she is hosting a 4 week long online party and you are invited!!! The Pretty Paper Party is the party to attend if you have a collection of paper stacked, stored, in bags, in boxes, shoved under the bed or proudly displayed around your house! If you keep all those scraps and never want to throw them away, this is the party for you! Or if you are just not wanting to cut up that pretty paper because it is well, just too pretty, you need to be at this party!

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.

And guess what... I am one of the special party guests!!! Yay!!! I am so excited!! What will I be doing? Well, I am not going to tell you that, you have to come to the party to find out. But here is a little sneak...

Now the giveaway! Wouldn't you LOVE to come to this Pretty Paper Party over at Shimelle's?? Well, I get to give away a seat to this special event. Yay!! All you have to do is leave me a comment in this post by Thursday, October 20th at 1:00 PM EST telling me you want to attend and I will draw one random winner for access to the party!! If you want to double your chances, I will enter your name TWICE if you tell me something about you favorite sheet (or line) of pretty paper! It is just so easy!!

Now the party officially starts today, but that is ok. It is always ok to be fashionably late to a party. Besides Shimelle is great and you will get forever access to this special event!! Awesomeness!

And do not worry if you have already registered for the party. Shimelle will credit you back the cost of the class or you can share it with a friend! You just can't lose!

See you all there!!


  1. My absolute favorite papers have been BG Infuse line. Something about the shapes of the flowers and the colors. *swoon!*

  2. I DO WANT to ATTEND this class so bad :D Thanks for the chance.

  3. My current fave line for now is OA sidewalks.

  4. This would be really great class to take. Love Shimelle's style and videos. She's taught me a lot (as a newbie to scrapbooking)! My favorite paper right is Amy Tangerine's Falling For You- so cute with the hearts!

  5. I would love to attend the class! Thanks for the chance!

  6. I would love to attend the party! Shimelle's classes are always so fun. thanks.

  7. I would love to attend!! I was looking into this call last week!

    And as for "pretty" paper I would have to say it is AC Garden Cafe.

    Congrats too!

  8. I would love to attend! And - right now- I am still in love with MME Lost and Found (1 & 2)

  9. I would love to attend! I know this may be late but I cannot seem to get it to post my comment. /: Anyhow, I am one of those people who buys pretty paper but I am afraid to cut it. I use my 'ugly' paper for my layouts instead.

    Currently I love Crate Paper's Random Collection. It is soft, pretty and simple.

  10. I would love to attend!! I love Shimelle! My favorite line at this time is the Amy Tan line from american Crafts.
