Now while you are looking at the classes being offered by the various Host Stores, you are probably wondering what they classes are going to be. Well... here is a brief description of each to wet your appetite! I can tell you that I am awaiting my boxes of BRAND NEW Pink Paislee, Authentique and Prima products so I can get to work designing the ACTUAL projects (I figured you gals all want the new stuff, right?!). Pictures will be pasted as soon as they are complete but know that they will remain true to the description as best as possible. I will also mention that the kits will be BURSTING with fabulous products from each of these manufacturers and then some. There will be prizes and giveaways leading up to and during the classes to build up excitement. I want this to be FUN and what better way than to put together a few contests along the way! Okay, first... here are the descriptions:

On the upcoming Artsy Adventure Tour, there will be up to three amazing classes to choose from at a local scrapbook store in Australia near you. Each class will focus on one of 3 very different yet all amazing manufacturers. Each class will be showcasing a variety of fun techniques along with a plethora of beautiful products from each of the manufacturers newest releases. Read below for some brief descriptions that are sure to give you a taste of what will be offered. Actual sneak peek photos and finalized descriptions will be released in the near future.

Trinkets and Treasures
It’s the little things that matter most...
Pink Paislee is synonymous with perfection with each and every new release. Their amazing papers and embellishments quickly become the favourites of many and this newest collection will be no different. Join Trisha as she shares with you this precious mini album complete with numerous pockets and flaps designed to house adorable tags, additional photos and hidden journaling throughout. Each page is a new home to another trinket or treasure and will surely gain the admiration of all who you share this completed project with after participating in this class.

Luscious Layers
It’s not just paper anymore...
Authentique hit the scrapbooking scene last year and took the world by storm. Their beautifully textured papers and co-ordinating embellishments serve as the perfect foundation for any paper crafting, project as you will see in this class. Join Trisha, AUTH-orized Authentique Educator, as she guides you through the process of creating a one of a kind layout worthy of displaying proudly on the most coveted space on your wall. She will show you some fabulous techniques for taking your paper and their co-ordinating embellishments to an entirely new level of wonderful. 

It’s a Beautiful Life...
Lumps and Bumps are a good thing... especially when it comes to all things Prima!
We all know Prima to be in the forefront when it comes to producing beautiful papers and embellishments so what better products to use on a mini album showcasing our “Beautiful Life” than those that tend to define beauty? Trisha has and the privilege of sharing Prima classes world wide for many years and they never disappoint! Surely this will be one class you do not want to miss as this mini album is bursting with a plethora of the beautiful Prima products that we all adore and is perfect for showcasing so many of the people and things that create your Beautiful Life.
