Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party & Giveaway!

There are online classes for everything these days, and Shimelle has been teaching online scrapbooking classes for years - but she's decided it's time to kick it up a bit and go from online class to a four-week online party, and you're invited! 

Pretty Paper Party is the party to attend if you have a collection of paper stacked up for a rainy day, if you have more scraps of paper than you know what to do with (but you know you don't want to throw them away!) and if you've ever put a piece of paper back in your stash because it was just too special for the photos at hand.

Through printable prompts and tutorial videos, Shimelle and dozens of special party guests will share beautiful and innovative techniques you can achieve with the paper you have already collected.

And guess what? I'm going to be a special party guest at the Pretty Paper Party! I'm so excited! I know Shimelle has some fabulous things planned and I get to be a part of it! I hope YOU can join in too!

And guess what else? I'm giving away a class pass for the Pretty Paper Party!

All you have to do is leave a comment and let me know what's your fave pretty paper and how you could use it to decorate for a party. If you've already signed up for the class and you win, Shimelle will refund the cost to you or you can give your free pass as a gift. I'll draw a winner Thursday night around 11pm central time. Please leave your email address in the comment section. If Blogger is acting up please leave a comment using the anonymous choice and leave your name in the comment area.

So, class started today but as with any good party it's okay to arrive fashionably late.  The class has no deadlines and everyone receives permanent access to all the class materials, so anyone can RSVP to the party at any time!


  1. With this cold front that just moved through this evening... how fun would it be to party with Shimelle and guests??? I have always admired her crafting skills..what a great idea of the paper party!! To pick a favorite paper line?? I swing like a monkey from clean and bright to vintage and favorites are Graphic 45 ABC Primer right now..mixed with the Classic Red/Black from JBS....I would love to decorate a beautiful vintage banner for my mantle ...mix in the pumpkins and gourds ..oh yea!

  2. this sounds like a party I would love to be invited to! Thanks for the giveaway. I don't know if I could pick one favorite paper only, but I do love the new Crate Random collection and I could envision a whole party venue making banners, and paper flowers, and napkin rings and favor bags all over!

  3. I love parties AND pretty paper! In the spirit of Christmas, I have grand ideas to play with MME's 12 Days of Christmas to make a banner and a wreath!

  4. Congratulations on being a special guest for this!

  5. What a fantabulous giveaway! What a wonderful idea and congrats on the special guest spot. I found you via Christy Tomlinson's post about cheveron goodies. Your chevron layout is insanely cool! As for favorite papers, I love so many of them. I am a huge fan of Crate Paper and have plans to create many birthday decorations for future birthdays...banners, invitations, cards, etc. Thanks dearly for the chance! :)

  6. Oh, this class looks so good!
    And how fun that you are a part of it!
    I was just saying on another blog how I didn't take it because I was trying to catch up on some other on-line classes, but I would love to have a chance to win! :)
    My new fave line right now is OA Sidewalks. The papers are so pretty. They would make pretty garlands to hang for a party :)

  7. I have way too many favorite papers to even list- namely, my Studio Calico kit papers that seem to keep collecting, never to be used! =)

  8. I have a favorite paper! It's this gorgeous one from Crate Paper:

    The wood grain, the white floral so lovely! I'd love to make some pretty paper flowers for a bouquet :)

  9. oh briana, thanks for a chance to win. the class sounds awesome!!
    i think for pretty party paper i would have to pick OA sidewalks. i would make banners, party favors on lollipop sticks, and placards.

  10. My favorite paper is My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Sunshine Forever Dotted and I would use it to line Party Favor Bags. and even make matching name tags for the table. LOVE
