Elegant Inspiration + Singing in the Rain Sneak Peek

Print Blog Save This Post to My Library

Hi Friend,

Happy New Year! How is your week going? Brrr....it's a chilly -12 degrees here in Indiana...Are you recovering from all the hustle and bustle the holidays bring! What was one of your favorite moments?

Have you created your first project of 2018? If not, we're bringing you the first fresh new inspiration of 2018 that will get your creativity jump-started....it's amazing what taking the time to create something beautiful can do for you! Here's what Barbara shared that happened to her recently:

I learned so much from this online class. I have been making scrapbooks for many years. I wasn't sure this class would help me. I was wrong!! I learned many useful techniques that will come in handy with many of my future activities. I was so impressed that I have signed up for the next class. It is nice that I can replay the class whenever I want to. I was happy to see others materials can be used to make these projects. I can't wait to try out the techniques I learned. I loved seeing all the samples. ~Barbara Jane Johnson

Singing in the Rain Sneak Peek: Speaking of projects, behind the scenes, out entire team has busily been scampering around preparing for the debut of our first collection in 2018...can anyone say "cuteness overload" squeal, I have had sooo much fun creating with this collection and am over excited that we get to share a preview today! Who's excited about the Singing in the Rain Collection debuting online January 10th. You can see the entire preview here: http://hcgo.co/SingingInTheRain

The winner from last week's alumni blog hop was Lisa Conner! Have a creative and blessed week! Emma Lou

P.S. I would love to see what you create! Share your projects with us on Facebook at or email your story of what crafting does for you to [email protected]
