March Happenings

March is here! Boxes are arriving and I am giddy with all the new products coming in from CHA! I have so many projects/classes and my kits on my mind, I don't know which one to start first!

I had a great time teaching The Art Life Configurations class at Scrapbook Territory last weekend, full of vintage goodies, this one was really neat because everyone's turned out slightly different. Here are a few pics of the class projects. I'll be teaching this one again on March 19th at Scrapbook Territory, so come join me to make your own!

I am also going to host a 10 hour crop at the store on the 19th as well, starting at 2pm, till midnight. Bring your friends, projects and lets get our crop on!

I of course am one of those Twilight people, so I went GAGA over the DCWV Immortal Love papers. I took the small mat pack and made a super cute mini album with a Maya Road Binder and here is the result! I'll be teaching this on the 26th at Scrapbook Territory as well.

I'm going to be spreading my wings in the next few months, so look for classes at Art Inspired Studios in Brentwood, Our Paper Place in Newark, and then look for a monthly class here at my home in Walnut Creek. I am going to start a once a month layout class which will help you get some family layouts in your books!

Lora and I are heading out to Scrapbook Island this weekend to take a class from Marion Smith, I actually get to TAKE a class, weeehooo! I can't wait to meet this talented lady and have fun with a great group of women!


  1. Hi Daniela, looks like you had a great class at Scrapbook Territory. I need to make it back there again soon. I miss everyone!

  2. Can't wait for another road trip with you! Not sure S.I. can handle us, but we shall see. ;)
