Playful Scrapbook Layouts scrapbooking workshop at Craftsy with Aly Dosdall

Hello paper craft and scrapbooking friends! So glad you could join our blog hop today, and I hope you have fun and take a minute to check out the amazing paper craft and scrapbooking classes offered through the Craftsy platform.

I'm Aly Dosdall and I've been designing, blogging, and teaching in the scrapbooking and paper craft industry now for over 17 years. My work has been featured in a variety of publications, as well as on the Home Shopping Network and QVC UK. Additionally, I share my paper crafts expertise as blog hostess and design team coordinator for We R Memory Keepers, and on my blog here, at alydosdall.com.

Playful Scrapbook Layouts scrapbooking workshop at Craftsy with Aly Dosdall

I have the pleasure of teaching Celebrating Everyday Moments: Playful Scrapbook Layouts. Throughout this class, you’ll learn a variety of fun techniques as you make seven playful scrapbook layouts — all with guidance from yours truly. Start by creating ombré backgrounds and effective color schemes. Then, find out how to bring depth to your page and alter your photos so that they complement your color scheme. Discover easy techniques for creating washi tape banners and learn essential design principles for strong, eye-catching pages. Next, make a fun chevron design and guide your viewer’s eye across your layout with sprayed ink! Moving on, mask your background, add a pleated and stitched border, and even create colorful starbursts. Finally, build a memorabilia file folder to store keepsakes on any page. Plus, you can purchase the class kit packed with Studio Calico patterned paper, die cuts, stickers, fabric tags and American Crafts washi tape on Craftsy.

To celebrate this awesome blog hop, I'm giving away a FREE SEAT IN MY CLASS!! If you'd like to be considered for this giveaway, leave a comment below telling me if you've ever taken a Craftsy class and if so, which one. Comments will remain open until Thursday, July 16th at midnight EDT. I'll announce the winner on Friday, July 17th. Be sure to check back to see if you won!

At the Inlet said...

I have bought or gotten for free 235 classes from Craftsy. I keep hoping to find things to do lying down as I lay down 23+ hours a day. I am aiming at cardmaking, knitting, crocheting, drawing. I bought a lot of cooking classes for my Mom hoping to make life taking care of me more fun, She never feels confident in cooking, so I hope the classes make her just feel good about cooking. She does a good job with all her responsibility. I know I can't do scrapbooking on 12x12 but perhaps cards.

Susan Egan said...

Never taken a class on Craftsy. It tough to decide which one would fit my needs.

WandaM said...

I've taken several of the quilting classes but not the paper classes. That would be fun!
