I just realized that i had not posted projects from CHA that will be part of the Passport to Creativity: Land of Enchantment projects! I have to give the blog more attention!
Last year, the Bash moved from New Years Eve to New Years Day and it worked so much better for so many people. So, I decided to do it on New Years Day once again. We will start things off at 2m PST to allow people to get a bit of sleep in after a late night. We will be working on an album with a free tutorial using some of my digital papers. // read more
My blog has been extremely quiet for a long time. I will be trying to change that in the coming weeks. For many months, all my blog seemed to be about was announcements of kits and patterns and explanations of why things were being delayed. I am hoping to change that and get back to the reason I started my blog Following the Paper Trail back in 2009, to share creative projects and ideas. Stay tuned! // read more
Oh my…..it is so overwhelming and heartwarming to see what you all do with my designs and patterns. From the very beginning of my journey in the world of paper, back in 2009, my one true goal was to plant seeds of inspiration. My hope was always to inspire you to create. Whether you do exactly as I do or you take a leap of faith and tweek and change to make a project your own, I just want you to create! I feel so blessed to have so many who have stuck with me through the good times and the bad times of the past 7 years!
Over the weekend, I was able to get a good chunk of the backlog of Turn the Page 2016 pages, etc (in both written and video) up for those who have purchased either the Binder kit or the electronic version. I still have two more pages that should be up by tomorrow and another two pages by the end of the week. After that, I will be releasing at least 2 pages and one other element each month. Whew, glad to be close to back on track.
The written tutorials are available to download in your account and the videos are available under the Paid Tutorials tab on the website. I am working on the best solution to make videos available for those who want them available without internet. I won’t be doing the USB and DVD option this time as it has been a nightmare to provide. Stay tuned while I get this one figured out.
As a thank you for you patience as I struggled to get this project back on schedule, I will have an extra 4-6 pages that I will add in randomly as I can. These will be pages that I did not originally plan to do and you may have to add materials to create sample if you have purchased the binder kit. I still have to get together written tutorials for some of the new bindings but the video tutorials for those have full info to create them. I have one more binding to introduce in August….possibly more after that one.
This week I will continue to work on the two remaining Simple Favorites tutorials as well as the upcoming Vertical FotoFile Album pattern. I am also working towards starting to ship out the TTP 2016 Binder kits starting next week. As I have noted on Ustream, it will take a few weeks to get those all out. I so appreciate your patience!! Other projects are not forgotten, you can check out the Project Status tab to check on where things are in the lineup.
I am super excited to see what you all do with the latest Turn the Page system! This project is a massive undertaking each year but it truly is a labor of love that pays off when I see what all of you do with it. Who would ever have guessed what it would become from the ustream ramblings from that day in June three years ago! I am planning to release more Turn the Page kits in the near future!
So many ideas and plans and so little time….
Heres a bit of review regarding the concept of how the Turn the page systems work. The pages from year to year are interchangeable. Each year has different pages and new elements. Many of the bindings and cover types are repeats from year to year but new ones do get added frequently.
For those of you new to my Turn the Page Mini Album System, it is a series of pages for mini albums that can be mixed and matched to suit your needs. There are a variety of binding methods that work with all of the pages as well. You will receive written tutorials for all pages as well as exclusive lifetime access to videos to construct pages viewable on my website. Here is a video that explains the original Source Book.
The Limited Edition 2016 Turn the Page Source Book kits are still available. The Limited Edition Binder Kits include a signed, custom printed binder, all the materials needed to create sample pages and the binder dividers, etc. You can also purchase the electronic version of any of the Source Books and use your own supplies. I will have a limited number of binders available that can be fitted with a supplied sticker to make it suitable for any of the available years.
Hi all! It’s Patches! The number one cat at Laura’s house.
Mom’s away so I have gotten the rest of the menagerie together and we are gonna play! Yeah, I know that Aly, the dog, thinks she’s in charge but…. you know the saying “Dogs drool, cats rule”? Well, it’s true! Pepper is feeding her a steady stream of dog treats to keep her quiet about this….. dogs are soooo easy!
What we are doing is just having a bit of fun! While mom is gone, we are putting all her patterns on sale for 25% off! (As usual, the video tutorial ones, like Turn the Page and One and Done and the new ones she got done before she left aren’t included in the sale though). The sale has to end by the time she gets back next Tuesday night, but that’s almost a week away!!!
Do join our fun, just put in the code CATSPLAY2016 on the cart page in the box provided. I think you have to go to view your cart before check out to see it.
I know mom managed to get a couple of videos done for the Simple Favorites albums and will be posting those today or tomorrow. Knowing her she will announce them when they are up. Don’t worry, I posted this sale announcement secretly so that you all can see it but she can’t! I am smart that way. I guess Mom’s drool too!
I have put together kits using currently available G45 papers for this project. I am working on a sample with these papers. This will be the only alternate kit for this project. I will be using the Southern Belle kit during the Ustream classes for this project, and this new kit will be the one used in the pattern.
