*Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party Class Giveaway!*

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.
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.
the class actually starts TODAY{Monday}
but as with any good party, it's okay to arrive fashionably late.
The class has no deadlines and everyone receives permanent access
to all the class materials, so anyone can RSVP to the party at any time!
I'm excited to announce that Shimelle invited me to be a guest to this very special party!
Here's a little snippet of what I did for the class:

guess what else?
I get to give a class away!

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment here, telling me what you do with YOUR scraps.
I have mine in a rolling tote with drawers, sorted by colors.
I store my cardstock first, then my patterned paper below.
it's a perfect set up and it's next to me so I can just reach & use anytime.
Do you store yours? Do you keep them at all? Tell me about it!
It's your entry - plus...
if you share this post on Facebook - it counts as an extra entry.
(just repost here, telling me you did that)
Also - if you've already registered for Shimelle's class - she will refund you
or you will receive a free pass to give to your friends and/or family.

I will choose a winner on Wednesday morning and post soon after!

Thanks so much!
Have a blessed day!

I have my paper scraps in a black paper carrier from Hobby Lobby, divided by color-I have a lot of scraps!! I would love to win a spot!

I have my scraps in a rolling carts, sorted by colors like you do. One cart is for patterned papers and the other is for cardstock. I look at scraps first to see if I can use them before cutting into a full sheet. If something was part of a collection I keep it all together in a large ziploc bag with the collection.

I keep my scraps in a pretty fabric bin, sorted by color. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Would SO love to take this class!! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

As for my scraps, I keep them in two different places. If they are 6x6 or bigger, they stay in my Cropper Hopper along with the full sized sheets. If they are smaller, they go into baggies which are labeled by manufacturer and are stored in a small plastic shoe box that sits right by my scrap table. It works great!

I save my scraps, I store them in the 3 tier sterlite bins. They're sorted by solids and prints.

Jill said...

I keep my scraps by color in an accordion type file. It's my 3 year old daughters favorite place to find new shapes! She makes faces with the shapes while I scrap.

Kat said...

wow! i cant believe how organized everyone is with their scraps!! i just throw mine all into a big bin and rummage around whenever i need something...not organized at all!!

Kate aka stinkydudette said...

I keep anything that is 2" and bigger. They are perfect for punched accents, and keep them by color! Hope to win a spot!

Melissa said...

I have mine filed by color, but I like your drawer idea! Thanks for the giveaway!

Maria Therese said...

Sound like a fun fun class!!
I have my scraps in a 12x12 boks at my desk that I go through every time I make a layout or card.. Once every few month I go through them and give the once I know I'm not going to use to my daughter, mother or nieces.. I use scraps almost every day..

Laurie LaRiviere said...

I do save all of my scraps, I keep them in the same drawers as my paper that I organize by manufacturer, I find it easier that way, so all my American Crafts little bits and pieces will be in the drawer with the 12 x 12's work for me! thanks for the giveaway, sounds awesome!

pegg said...

Love your sneak - this class sounds so fun! For my color cardstock I put them in page protectors sorted by shade and hang them on a wall so I can easily access them. For my pattern papers I usually keep them with the kits (mostly buy pattern paper in scrapbook kits). No plan right now!

Renee said...

Ah, Leslie, I love the sneak!

I store my scraps in baggies and try to keep them with the original stack or paper pad they came from. I love to use them for card making and die-cuts.

Thanks so much for sharing and the chance to win this awesome class!

Kathy said...

I have most of mine divided by color and put in page protectors. I store the page protectors in a basket in my expedite shelf. I have larger scraps filed in a vertical paper holder next to the basket with the smaller scraps in it.

Mel said...

I store mine in a 12x12 box and try to pick from those when using smaller bits to create pages, especially when I do scraplifting or sketches. Thanks for the chance to win!

cindy said...

All of my scraps are color sorted and patterned grouped for easy access. I love this way of organizing.

Ladydoc said...

I store my smaller than 6 inches wide scraps in a shoebox. Larger scraps are in a plastic paper file box up in the cupboard sorted by color.
THX for the chance at the class.
