Hello, Crafters! The thermometer is rising, the sun is sitting higher in the sky, and the nights are getting shorter. It's June and we're ready for another summer spent on the patio, sipping lemonade and thinking of all of the creative projects we're ready to take on! Whether you're ready to finally get into organizing your craft room, looking for creative craft ideas, or are ready to learn something new in a free class, we've cooked up some resources below to help you step into a summer full of arts, crafts, and fun.
We have a brand new color palette for you to try on your own layouts, cards, or other arts & crafts projects. This month, our palette is inspired by wildflowers and sunshine! With Dandelion yellow, California Poppy-inspired-orange, and beautiful clay Sienna, this color palette is toasty-warm and will leave your projects looking sun-kissed. Don't forget to share your finished piece in our gallery for a chance to be featured in an upcoming newsletter or on the blog!
Talk about summer love - because we're swooning over the gallery! You guys are cranking up the heat by creating and sharing some sizzling projects with us. We chose a few to share with you that inspired us. Don't forget to click on your favorite one, be it the elephants, cacti, or perhaps the salt and pepper, that way you can learn more about it and see it up close!
Each month, we share a craft blogger who is inspiring and not only talks the talk, but walks the walk!
Francine of Callaloo Soup is our Inspirational Crafter of the Month, and not just because she is "fueled by sunshine," like she shares on our blog. Francine's blog is all about living simply and creatively, while inspiring and empowering women to do the same in their own lives. She, in her own words, "values experiences more than things," and wants to create projects that reflect her values and are true to herself. From tutorials to creative resources (like printables and advice), to her own stories and inspirational projects (her hand lettering is to die for!), Francine shares her life with you on her blog and social channels, like Instagram.
Have you visited the Scrapbook.com Classes? No?! What are you waiting for? Ok, in all seriousness, we have a section of our website where we have a variety of classes available with subjects ranging from pocket page scrapbooking to bible journaling, card making to die cutting, and more. We'd like to invite you to view one of our newest classes - and it's all about Watercolor.
This class is for anyone who wants to learn the basics of Watercolor paintings, be it for the first time or as a refresher course. Sarah Richards goes through 101 knowledge with you: what kind of paper you need, what kind of brushes work, why some papers work and others do not, how to mix colors step-by-step, and more. Then, she shares seven beautiful and beginner-friendly Fine Art and "fun" art techniques that you can try right away. Get started in your journey with watercolor, with all the knowledge you need!
Our Scrapbook.com classes are broken up into lessons that can be taken at your own pace, plus we also let you know all of the tools that we use and where you can find them! Sign up today!
