If you are looking for a book to read over the holidays, you might want to check out Gossamer Ghost by Laura Childs – a Scrapbooking Mystery!! This is the 12th book in the series. It is Halloween and once again Carmella happens up a dead body and she tries to find out who did it! These books are always fun to read. Carmella owns a Scrapbook store in New Orleans, and the books always include Scrapbooking and Papercrafting tips as well as some New Orleans Recipes. Each book stands on it’s own, so even if you haven’t read any of the past books, you will still enjoy Gossamer Ghost!
Gossamer Ghost is available on Amazon in the US and Canada! As well, check out if your local Bookstore carries it or your local Library!
Or you can win a copy of the book. Just by leaving me a comment, here on the Scrap Time blog, letting me know how you are celebrating the Holidays!
Contest closes Monday, December 22nd, 2014 at 10pm EST!

For the past 5 years Gemma and I have been handing out Words of Kindness during the month of December. This was started by Melody Ross and the Brave Girls Club. I decided to go that extra step this year. I cut up my collage sheets into small rectangles and then adhered the phrases onto them using Multi-Medium. You could use scrapbook paper as well. Now the recipients will have a little piece of art that they can keep.
You can download the Words of Kindness from the Brave Girls Club website.
Merida has her own Meet and Greet area! There is always a long line to meet Merida, so I would go here first thing in the morning! They have added a colouring area, so as the adults wait in line, your kids can colour at the table!
Once you get to meet Merida, she helps you with your archery techniques. Ironically, we had just done the Archery Experience the day before, so Gemma was used to holding a Bow.
Then once you are done, you can practice your skills shooting an arrow at a target!
This is a great interactive Meet and Greet and well worth the wait!
I am excited to announce a new class series: Step By Step Art Journaling: Art Journaling in Real Time! I had previously offered a month long version of the Step By Step Art Journaling class, and decided that each month throughout 2015, I will post a new page! Each Class will include 5-7 videos showing you how I create a page from start to finish, in real time, so you can create along with me. I will be using different mediums each month, teaching you new techniques as I go. As well, since it is in real time, you will see techniques that may not work the way I thought they would and how I fix these obstacles.
You can purchase 1 class at a time, for $8 each month. This way you can pick and choose which pages you are interested in. Or, you can purchase a Year Pass for $80. That way you get 2 months FREE!!
The classes will be posted the 1st of each month. Once the class is posted you will have unlimited access to it!
For January we are using Acrylic Paints, Gesso, Multi Medium, Paint Pens, Glitter Glue and stencils. There are 6 videos featuring a few techniques. The sneak peek is posted above.
So sign up now!!!
