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.
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.
