One-Buck Wednesday!

Wednesdays at the Spraground (aka are always huge party-days when designers put up some really choice items for … wait for it… nothing more than a buck! Can you imagine the amazing chance to preserve your precious memories with awesome made-with-love schtuff that costs less today than a hotdog?

Yup. Awesome. Totally. 🙂

Just wanted to let you know that I have my {Swirly Words} Stamps & Brush Set on One-Buck Wednesday!

Perfect for adding movement and energy and a touch of whimsy to your layouts, there are 14 super-fun and super-swirly words in this element pack. They come as stamps (in .png format) so that you can use them with any program, and as a brush set (in .abr format) so that you can resize them and color them as you wish.

You’ll get a mix of brush sizes, and a good number of them are large enough to fit a 12×12 layout horizontally and vertically. Use them to add color and a dash of playfulness to your creations!

For the Young, the Once-Young, and the In-BeTWEENs

Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.  ~Jim Fiebig

Nor does it diminish the extreme joy of creating an album to hold your most precious memories!

We have three new exciting classes that are opening today at! And like a scrumptious banana-split festival, there are three flavors, perfect for the young, the once-young, and the in-beTWEENs among us!

First off, we have the newest instructor-led class (with no less than the awesome Jessica Sprague at the helm), the Family History Album Class!

Record the stories of your ancestry; tell the funny, touching, and unforgettable stories of your parents, grandparents, and the other branches of your family tree! I can think of no better way to get this all-important job of memory-keeping done than to create a 20-page heritage album (and even get it printed when you’re done, if you so desire!)

Classes begin on October 11th (that’s next Monday).

Click on the image below to learn more about the class! And when (not if 😉 ) you decide that this is *just* what you’ve been dreaming of, clicking on this image will also bring you to the very place where you can sign up!

And for all those who are 8 – 18 years of age (or feeling 8 to 18 😉 ), you now have the chance to create your own Awesome Album! Whether this will be your first time to create a digital scrapbook album, or your nth time, you’ll love this opportunity to create your own 20-page album about yourself! Got homework and will be busy on some days? No worries! The class is self-paced, so you can go as quickly or as slowly as you wish!

You’ll get an awesome kit designed exclusively for the class by my beloved cereal-munching great friend Nisa, and (get our your bullhorns and announce this to the world), you’ll be led in the class by the Great Jessica Sprague! When you complete your album you’ll be able to share it with all your friends and loved ones in two different ways! Intrigued yet? Read all about it by clicking on the images below!

The Tween Album Class (featuring loads of doodles and bright colors and sweetness all over):

The Teen Album Class (featuring coolness in the form of paint swashes, rockstar titles, and stereos!):

Well? Whatchawaiting for? Go run and sign up and give yourself (and your friends) this gift of a class and album rolled into one!

Gotta get started now on my design work, so I’ll see you soon!

Cool Schtuff #2

Oooh! Two delightful discoveries in one day: could anything be cooler? 😀 believes that fun is a great motivator; carry this theory further and then come up with the thesis that the easiest way to change people’s behavior for the better (i.e., get them to make the better, wiser choice) is simply to make it fun. Oooh. My kind of theory. My kind of people!

Now if only we could let world leaders in on this secret, and therefore get them to go about their business of effecting GOOD change in a fun way, that would be completely awesome now, wouldn’t it?
