And express your creativity while organizing your life in Creative Lists for Planners with Cara Vincens. There's something for everyone! Which class will you take first?
Recording your memories in a traveler's notebook doesn't have to be complicated! In Everyday Notebook, Marcy Penner reveals easy techniques for creating simple, well-designed spreads in your traveler's notebooks using supplies you already have in your stash! Discover ideas for creating design- and technique-based spreads, working with sketches, and using page starters such as inspiration pieces and prompts. In each lesson, Marcy walks you through the creation of a spread in her notebook and provides useful tips and tricks along the way. Documenting your everyday memories in your notebook has never been easier!
Challenge yourself to create Paperless Pages! In this class, Kathleen Graumüller shares awe-inspiring layout designs without the use of patterned paper! Use die-cuts to create layers and clusters, create a sequin shaker pocket, make a multi-colored stitched background, use the stamp and resist technique, and repurpose leftover alphabet stickers or empty packaging. You'll be surprised just how much you can create when you go paperless!
Do you have lists upon lists on Post-its® and the backs of envelopes? Project ideas, shopping lists, and spur-of-the-moment ideas that don't have a place in your day-to-day planner? Give your homeless but important things a home—and get creative doing it! In this class, Cara Vincens shares how she created space for her lists and found a way to express her creativity, experiment, and capture and preserve the memories of her everyday life at the same time—and how you can too! She'll guide you through setting up your own list book, ideas of topics to list or track, techniques for making it your own with your favorite supplies, and tips for keeping it going and keeping it fun! Add a little more organization and craftiness to your otherwise boring lists with Creative Lists for Planners!
