FS Designers: Amanda Bay

The newest member of our design team is Amanda Bay. I am super excited to be working with her! I was impressed not only by Amanda's creative layouts but by the kind spirit that she exudes and I have no doubt you will be too! Below is a little more about Amanda in her own words.

Amanda Bay

"I created my first scrapbook at the tender age of 5, carefully using Elmer's glue, tape, pictures, magazines, and a trash bag to create a masterpiece. Almost 35 years later, I am still creating scrapbook art one page at a time. I was a happy and successful Creative Memories Sr. Consultant for 8 years before the pull of all things blingy, bumpy, lumpy, textured and more became too great. I am a hybrid scrapper using both traditional and digital techniques. I use many mediums in my scrapbooking and while still loving CM, I use many other brands as well. Digitally I have used SBC for several years and most recently added PSE10 to my skill set. I enjoy learning new techniques and trying new new things while also holding on to the basic tradition of the art we know as scrapbooking. I have been married for 12 years and have two awesome daughters and a dog named Benji. When not scrapbooking I am a stay at home mom, who rarely stays at home! I love to read, write, draw, paint, and well basically try my hand at all things creative. I am very excited for this opportunity and look forward to joining the Feeling Scrappy team of amazing designers."

Here are a few of Amanda's recent layouts:

We hope you will join us for Sketchapalooza 8 to see more of Amanda's work!

FS Designer: Tracy Kosofsky

Time to meet our next designer. I am sure many of our readers know Tracy well. :) She is super talented and we are so thankful to have her on our team. Tracy not only provides beautiful sample pages to inspire our students but also designs the Photoshop elements digital templates for all of our sketches. She has come up with some amazing sketches for our next class - Sketchapalooza 8. For those of you that don't know Tracy, here is a bit about her in her own words: 

Tracy Kosofsky

"After moving around the country since getting married to my wonderful DH, Adam, in 1998, we settled in central Pennsylvania in early 2010 and we're here to stay! We have a diva-ish 8 year old daughter and a devil-ish 4 year old son, and when I'm not at my full-time job as a health care executive or indulging in my scrapbooking passion, you can usually find me enjoying my kids' activities, reading, baking, and either planning for or recovering from our most recent travels. I've been scrapbooking since 2000 and have been mostly digi since 2009, although I still enjoy getting my hands dirty with "real" mini albums, cards and other paper crafts."

Here are a few of Tracy's recent layouts. Pretty awesome huh?!

Thanks for visiting!

FS Designers: Stacey Curry

We are gearing up for our next class, Sketchapalooza 8, the sketches are all ready to go and our designers are busy creating beautiful samples for each and every sketch. I would like to take some time to introduce you to our designers. I will be highlighting each one here over the next few posts.
First up is Stacey Curry!

Stacey Curry

Stacey and I met when we both lived in Omaha, Nebraska through our love of scrapbooking. I instantly liked her and you would too! She is super talented, sweet, goofy and on top of that, has a cool edge to her. I encourage you to visit her business here to see just how multi-talented she really is
Here is a little about Stacey in her own words:  
"Hi everyone! I'm Stacey, and I am hopelessly addicted to all things creative! :) I am passionate about creating. I have been at it for so long I can't imagine what life would be like without it. Mom inspired the passion of creativity, she crocheted, did ceramics, and baked, and she was wonderful about including my sisters and I when we were younger. Dad let us create in the garage with his tools and scraps of wood. There wasn't really a right or wrong way - they just let us do what we were inspired to do. So I feel I have always been creatively awake. My very first scrapbook project was in 1992. I made a scrapbook for my boyfriend (now hubby) as a graduation gift. It was a magnetic page album complete with bookmarks with sweet poems and stickers from the Hallmark section at Kmart. Even then with as few supplies as I had access to I was hooked, and have been at it ever since.

I was born and raised in rural Montana, and am very proud of it. I still consider myself a Montana girl. I now live just south of it’s border in Wyoming. I live with my hubby , Steve, our three beautiful children, Macey, Conor and Xander, and our sweet pups Sadie and Gregor. In addition to creating as much as possible just for the fun of it, I also have a creative business, Star Hitched Wagon™, where I create bath and body products from scratch and design one of a kind jewelry pieces. I enjoy running, camping, hiking, fishing, cheering for our local hockey teams in the winter and spending time with my family and the pups!!"
Here are a few of the layouts that Stacey created for our last class:

Random Kindness - A Give Away!

I know there are always fun, creative people out there who would love to take one of our classes but just can't swing it financial at the moment. Well - I would like to give TWO spots in our upcoming Sketchapalooza class to two such ladies. The question is how to find these people and protect their privacy at the same time?

This is what I have come up with: Anyone who has registered for our class already or plans to register by midnight on Friday can enter one friend to win. No need to share their name just yet - all you need to do is to leave a comment here that you have a friend you would like to help out. On Saturday morning I will draw two winners - I will then get the contact information for the friend you would like to invite to attend for free! Sound good?

I will ask that if you plan to enter the drawing that you please have someone in mind that 1.) really wants to take the class and that you think will participate and 2.) they are in financial need.

Thanks for your help in sharing a little kindness by giving these class away!

Attention Digital Scrappers!

Did you know that Feeling Scrappy will be offering PS/PSE layered templates and SBC+ (.page) templates with every single sketch during our Sketchapalooza 7 Sketch Class? That is 20 templates (some double page) posted 5 per week over the month! Yours to keep and use over and over again. That will make for some super quick and super cute (if I do say so myself) pages! Check out all the details here.

It won't be long now...

Sketchapalooza 7 starts two weeks from today! For those of you that have signed up already, we will be sending out the class details early next week. For those of you that haven't registered for class yet - what are you waiting for?! ;) I am really excited about this class - we have all been busy working behind the scenes to bring you a month filled with awesome sketches and sample layouts.

See you in class soon! Hope today is a great start to the week for you :)

WW Pistachio Dessert

This is one of those - what can I toss together types of dishes. I remembered something like this from when I was a kid but had no idea what the exact recipe was so this is what I came up with. 


1 20 oz can crushed pineapple in pineapple juice
1 pack of fat free, sugar free pistachio pudding
1/2 container of lite whipped topping (you can use the whole thing if you like it fluffier)
1 16 oz container of fat free cottage cheese
1/4 cup chopped nuts (pistachios are great - I use pecans) *optional*

Mix all ingredients together. Serve cold.

This makes a big batch and for those doing weight watchers it clocks in at 2 points plus per 3/4 cup. It is not pretty but it is yummy and sweet for a nice low cal dessert :)

We just gave away a free spot in our June 2012 Sketch Class on our Facebook page. (Congratulations Julie Schmehl!) If you haven't check it out yet - you should - you never know when we will sneak in another surprise ;) Hint: very soon!

I don't know about you but for me some weeks just seem to drag by - and this happens to be one of them.

I have this beautiful My Mind's Eye stamp set just waiting to be used by one of you creative scrappers. 

Just leave a comment here and I will draw a random winner on Friday. That is all you have to do to be entered but I would love for you to help spread the word to about Feeling Scrappy your friends or check out our facebook page.

Happy Wednesday!  :)
