I’m the queen of fast scrapbooking. I don’t usually use a lot of techniques or fancy products. And I don’t like a lot of bulk on my pages. But one thing I do love is layers. I thought I knew what I was doing until I took this class with Nichol Magouirk. It took my scrapbooking to a whole new level! (A whole new layer???)

The Art of Layering:
Tips & Tricks for Creating Dimensional Scrapbook Layouts
with Nichol Magouirk

Adding layers to your scrapbook pages doesn’t have to mean unnecessary bulk in your albums. In the “Art of Layering” Nichol Magouirk will focus on design tips and tricks for adding dimension and interest to your scrapbook layouts through the addition of creative layers. Some of the techniques we will discuss are ideas for successfully mixing and matching patterned papers, mass-producing often used die cut elements for ease of use, combining custom die cut pieces with pre-made product like stickers and stamping, how to add those perfect finishing touches with just the right embellishments and how to machine stitch layers on your layout and more. This jam-packed class will showcase eight brand new layouts plus additional ideas and helpful hints, tips for building your own scrap stash for easy layering (or using the things you already have), complete supply lists for each project and step-by-step instructions in the accompanying full color PDF handout. Let’s take layering to the next level!

PS I am really enjoying sharing some of the projects I’ve created as a result of the classes I’ve taken. Here are just a FEW of the pages I created with the information and lessons taken from Nichol’s class. These are just snips because these pages are being saved for an upcoming class:
