It's getting close! Almost time for Lisa and I's Trendspotting class at Studio Calico! We have been working so hard and today we're excited to show you more sneaks from us and our contributors with a blog hop! In case you haven't heard, Trendspotting is Studio Calico's August class. The focus of the class will be spotting today's hottest trends in scrapbooking, fashion, home decor, etc. and using these trends on your pages w/out sacrificing your own style. There are TONS of tips and tricks for making trends work on your pages AND tutorials for really getting the job done.
(a tiny sneak of my woodgrain page):
We are joined by six contributors - all of whom have a strong personal style. Becky Novacek, Celine Navarro, Jaime Warren, Gillian Nelson, Nicole Samuels and Linda Barber will also be sharing layouts and advice on how they make all the latest trends work without compromising their signature look.
This is a four week class with three detailed PDF lessons each week, starting on August 6th. Each PDF will contain three layouts and a card (that's a total of 48 oh so trendy projects!), as well as tips and tricks from the teachers and contributors. In addition, Lisa and I will be sharing trend-based inspiration pieces on the private message board, and you'll have access to exclusive files (a collection of shapes in .png, .abr and .studio & two printable journaling card sets). Here's a look at the trends we will be covering in class :
week one : triangles, ombre and woodgrain
week two : metallics, sunburst and confetti
week three : neon, arrows and banners
week four : typography, mist and hexagons
The exclusive files are SO amazing and such a great perk for the class! Whether you have a Cameo or not, you'll find lots of goodies in these exclusives which can be used in almost any program.
In my sneak here, I've used one of the flies as a cut file in my Silhouette and then also used the triangles as a brush on top of my photo as well...so fun!
And there are lots of other exclusives too to go along with the trends!! Like these super cool ombre journaling cards from the fabulous Marcy Penner:
And these adorable journaling cards designed by Ms. Gluestick herself with the exclusive brusehes:
AND! Each of the contributors is giving away a $5 gift certificate to Studio Calico, which of course, we would LOVE for you to use to join us for Trendspotting! ;)
AND! You can leave a comment here letting me know what your favorite trend is right now and I'll enter you to win a spot in the class!! Don't forget to stop by Lisa's blog and the Studio Calico blog for more chances to snag a spot!
One more thing! If you haven't checked it out yet, we have set up a Trendspotting Pinterest board for sharing inspiration on trends. Here's a recent fave of mine that is the inspiration for the current class page on my desk ;)
