Friday FIVE for September 24th


Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine has a brand new issue AND a brand new website. Both are positively beautiful.

Take a peek.

I’m writing a series of 3 articles on digital work flow for SCT magazine and installment #2 is in this new fall issue. I’m also the featured designer–not quite sure how I snagged that honor!

If you head over to the NEW Big Picture Classes blog, you could WIN one of 20 copies we’re giving away!


Someday soon, I want to learn how to make these. I’ve poked around at Bakerella a number of times over the last two years.
I think I’ll put this book on my “buy this for mom” Christmas list.

Here’s the link on Amazon:
Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats

If you’re not familiar with cake pops, watch this video and I’m certain you’ll fall for them as I have.


I think Learning Curve from Bo Bunny Press is really FUN. is carrying the whole line.


Look at this pretty, pretty ad that Kayce created for Tracey Clark’s Picture Fall workshop. Fall is hands down my favorite season. If you want to join me in this photo-a-day-journey (and yes, with Tracey it is a fascinating and rewarding journey), you can register here.


My friend Randi Brunt is a Heritage Maker consultant who teaches regular classes here in Liberty Lake. She shared a cool new post-bound album with me. It was introduced this year at their convention and allows scrapbookers to build a digital book, page by page. It also features a fully customizable cover.

You can learn more HERE.

NOTE: Randi teaches a FUN self-paced project class at BPC too. It’s called Family Deck of Cards. With the instruction in this class and Randi’s help, you’ll build a customized deck of cards that feature family photos and facts–a wonderful project to give as a gift.

Don’t forget to click over to the BPC blog and comment to WIN a copy of the fall issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today!

Happy Friday!


  1. Thanks for all the goodies that you shared with us today. Oh, congrats on being guest designer! Not surprised, of course. You do beautiful work (play). Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing that link to how Bakerella make her cake pops! I have loved her for so long and when ever I tried making them they would always fall off the stick! Well now I know the trick! Thanks!!

  3. Those cake pops are soooo cute. I want to make the fancier ones. Will I have the patience? ;)

  4. i just had to buy the Cake Pops book. I’ve made them before and they were fun and delicious! I could NEVER decorate them as detailed as Bakerella does but just plain sprinkles were yummy!

  5. I am a huge fan of Bakerella’s, her book is going to be on my Christmas list too!

  6. The Cake Pops book is pure eye candy! I taught my young women how to make some of the simpler ones – so much fun!

  7. Oh, thanks for the mention. I too am in love with the ad Kayce designed for Picture Fall and cannot wait for it to start! : )

  8. Fabulous FIVE again….I LOVE that Learning Curve line, the Cake Pops book is on my daughter’s Christmas list, great new website for BPC, and already read the new issue of S&CT (love that publication), your contributions are excellent as always – thanks for the inspiration!

  9. The best thing about cake pops for a child’s birthday party is that they usually eat the whole thing (instead of licking frosting off a cupcake) AND there are NO CRUMBS! I think the extra time you spend making them (worth it alone for the cuteness) is paid back by less clean-up!

  10. Thanks for sharing all of these wonderful things! You are an amazing woman! :-)
