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.

Most of the Craftsy classes I have taken have been knit and crochet, but I have recently enrolled in a couple of paper crafting classes as well. Would love to win one more!
this is the class I want to win! All classes are interesting but Paige plays with paper in a fascinating way.
OOps! I did not read the instructions. No, I have not yet.
Sounds like a great class…would like to win….
Have only taken sewing craftsy class but would love to do some paper crafting
I'm not much of a scrap booker. I have some supplies but that is as far as it goes.
I have taken the free Craftsy classes but that's all. Would love to learn how to scrapbook – thank you.
I haven't taken a crafty class yet but have purchased one that I look forward to starting. I would love to learn how to scrapbook! Thank you for the chance to win a spot in your class!
SO EXCITED for the chance to win this Class!! I have looked at trying a class LONG Time, but have NEVER TRIED ONE!! THANKS for sharing and for the chance to win!! Have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
I recently signed up for a couple of Craftsy classes but haven't had a chance to start them quite yet. Yours looks like it would be a lot of fun, your scrapbook pages are gorgeous. Thank you for the giveaway!
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 12×12 but perhaps cards.
Never taken a class on Craftsy. It tough to decide which one would fit my needs.
I've taken several of the quilting classes but not the paper classes. That would be fun!
