Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

When a door closes, a window opens:)

Many of you may know that my business partner and  have decided to close our business, Picture This Boutique & Retreats to make way for each of us to pursue our own paths:)
I am so happy to say that the "break-up" is a very amicable one and we are both so excited to move in the direction of our dreams!
I, for one, am soooooo happy to get back to teaching which is truly my passion in this amazing world of paper crafting.
Although I still LOVE scrapbooking, my interests have moved way beyond the basics over the my new business name is appropriately titled "Scrapping with a Twist"...Beyond the Basics.
I held my first class on December 6th and had a very successful day filled with LOTS of CREATIVITY!
My second class is scheduled for January 17th from 9-6 pm.  Check out the details below!
As shown above, I will be partnering with Julie Wilcox for this fun filled day.  We will definitely getting our hands dirty as we play with chalkboard paint, sprays, several different gel mediums, inka gold, distress inks and stains, IZINKS, glitter glass, buttons, diecuts, embossing folders, and so much more!

So much has happened!

Wow!!!  So much has changed with my business since the last time I posted!
After spending an awesome year partnering with my good friend, Lizzy Williams we have decided it is time to go out on our own to continue sharing our love of paper crafting and building an amazing community where we can get together with others that share the same passion that we do:)
Our last event at partners and co-owners of Picture This Boutique and Retreats was a few weeks ago.  It was another awesome event and we had a blast sharing the weekend with our wonderful retreat attendees.  I know I am forever thankful for their friendships and I cannot wait to see them in the future!
On to the next chapter in my paper crafting career...
Now, I am very excited to share that I have started my new business called "Scrapping with a Twist".
My focus will be on creating amazing scrapbooking layouts that I will sell via social media (facebook and my Scrapping with a Twist blog), as well as at scrapbooking events!  In addition, I will be teaching again!  Yay!!!!
The first event I will be hosting will be a Mixed Media class with a bonus crop!  Next Saturday, December 6th from 10 am to 1 pm, I will be teaching a class using "ugly embellishments" to create a beautiful canvas.
