Invited to a fabulous [paper] party… [give-away!]

Standard

CONGRATS TO OUR WINNER: PEGG!!! [I have emailed you…]

from the hostess:

There are online classes for everything these days, and Shimelle has been teaching online scrapbooking classes for years – but she’s decided it’s time to kick it up a bit and go from online class to a four-week online party, and you’re invited.  Pretty Paper Party is the party to attend if you have a collection of paper stacked up for a rainy day, if you have more scraps of paper than you know what to do with (but you know you don’t want to throw them away!) and if you’ve ever put a piece of paper back in your stash because it was just too special for the photos at hand.  Through printable prompts and tutorial videos, Shimelle and dozens of special party guests will share beautiful and innovative techniques you can achieve with the paper you have already collected.

 Sounds like fun, right?!

Shimelle is such an awesome instructor, and all around fantastic woman. Love her! She’s funny, loves cupcakes and Zoolander, has traveled the world, oh, and she’s a total A-list scrapbooker too!! Guess what? She invited me to be a special party guest and share an idea. Not just that – but she suggested (and I took it as a personal challenge) to scrapbook getting my tattoo. The photos have been here, taunting me for a full year and I took her idea and ran with it! So glad to have that scrapbooked now…

That’s a teeny peek at the (homemade) stencil of my tattoo that I inked onto the layout. (get it? ink, tattoo… “inked”. I crack myself up)

So guess what? I have a seat to give away in this class!! That’s right, one of you can come join in the party for free. Just leave a comment here sharing what your favorite party (or everyday) sweet (or savory) treat is! This friday the 21st I will draw the winner.

  1. What a great giveaway! My favorite sweet party treat is strawberry shortcake (when strawberries are in season). There’s nothing like it!

  2. Oh I can’t wait to take Shimelle’s class! She is awesome! But I would love to win a spot. My favorite treat is chocolate anything! Love CHOCOLATE!!

  3. One of my favorite everyday treats is a little handful of chocolate chips, straight from the bag… and when I say everyday… I mean pretty much every day 🙂

    My sister-in-law reminded me the other day of a favorite holiday/party snack– olive butter: chopped up green and black olives in a butter/cream cheese base, which you spread onto crackers. Ohhhh is it good!

    • Natalie, when I was a child, we used to have cream cheese and black olive sandwiches. The base was a party nut bread that came in a can. I have not seen that around in decades, but now my mouth is watering for this old fave.

  4. what a great online class. I love, love, love paper and am always looking for new ways to use my favourites and reduce my pile of scraps. when I need a special treat I like to buy myself a latte but when there isn’t a Starbucks around I’m quite happy with chocolate covered almonds.

  5. Oops, that posted before I finished with my favorite party treat. My every day (or at least occasional) non-party treat is the salted caramel mocha at starbucks (with skim milk and no whip so mildly less decadent). My favorite savory party treat remains chex mix…. I have very little will power with this for some reason.

  6. This sounds like a great class, and I would love to see what you came up with for your lo. I cannot believe how much paper I have purchased because it was so pretty but have never found the right photos for.

    I love the salty type hors d’oeuvres at parties or even while watching football or baseball with dh. We make our own party. My favorite right now is elote salad. As an hors d’oeuvre you put it on tortilla chips. If you have never heard of this check out duodishes.com for the recipe. Yummy. For sweet I cannot get enough of red velvet cake. Unfortunately, my body says I do not need to eat all this yummy goodness.

  7. That sounds like a party I’d like to attend. Please have good old-fashioned chocolate cake for me!

  8. I would love to take this class!! One of my favorite treats is nerds. I’m all about the sour and they hit the spot every time. 😉

  15. It would be great if I could attend this party. Love Shimelle’s work. Thanks for the chance.

  16. My fave party treat is a really good cupcake…not a cheapy one but one that is worth the calories. Starbucks ice cream is coming to mind…just for an everyday or every other day treat. May, thanks for always inspiring us

  22. Shimeele’s web-site looks awesome! Thanks for the chance to win a spot in her class! I’m a total chocoholic, but really my favorite party treat is making whatever treats my kids choose for their birthday parties. We all have tons of fun with them 🙂

  23. My all-time favourite party treat is a memory from childhood. My parents would go to to play cards on New Year’s Eve, and would leave special treats for us at home including the (soda) pop Tahiti Treat. For years after I always associated Tahiti Treat with New Year’s Eve – the only time we ever got it – and I lamented the day you could no longer buy it!

  24. Hershey’s milk chocolate kisses is my all time favorite – whether at a party or at a crop. Only way to go for me. Thanks for the chance May!!

  46. My favorite treat is anything with Nutella !! I love Nutella and shimelle and would love to win this class ! Thanks for the chance.
