Shop Hop Hijinx and classes

The So-Cal Shop Hop is in full swing so be sure to pick up your passport at your local participating scrapbook store to get your list of stores. Each store has a movie theme and many stores have coordinating merchandise to go with their theme. My first Shop Hop stop was Ever After Scrapbooks in Vista. Their theme was Cinderella so I taught a princess themed Tattered Angels make and take.

After the make and takes I taught the "By the Sea" album featuring Tattered Angels products.

The store had just gotten their shipment of Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Glaze so we had a special treat, and got to play with some of it. Show me the Glam hands!

Yesterday I taught another layout make and Take at Collective Journey in Redlans. I used the new fall colors of Glimmer Mist and the Heidi Swapp Tattered Texture stamps for this one:

I had some friends from the Boulevard come out to play. That isn't as bad as it sounds, these girls are former employees and customers of Scrapbook Blvd, the store where I used to work.

Show me those Glimmer hands!

I discovered something while I was trying to create projects for the Shop Hop make and takes. I think I started my Glimmering career backwards. When I started glimmer misting I created albums using only glimmer mist and books, and every single inch of every page was glimmer misted. Most people start out just adding touches of Glimmer Mist here and there and work up to the full blown method. So now I was faced with having to come up with something that could be done in 15 minutes and I had my heart set on doing layouts. Good lord! What to do? I don't think I've ever done a full blown glimmer mist project in 15 minutes! Cards, and maybe pins, but certainly not a layout. Well, I did it, and I must say it was liberating! I am so happy with the way my 15 minute layouts turned out that I can't stop making them! At this rate I may be caught up with my scrapbooking in a week!(ok, maybe not) I urge you to try it! Just grab a screen a couple of stamps and some glimmer mist and see what you come up with. Next Saturday I will be at Kat Scrap Studio in Altadena
with another 15 minute layout for shop hop and I will also be teaching the "Time to Travel" Tattered Angels album and keepsake box. Please call the store for details at 626-398-0355 for details.
Happy Glimmering!
