Use Your Collection – an online Class

Shop Icon

Hi Magpies, Niki here, very excited to share my new online class for Hey Little Magpie. It’s called Use Your Collection and is about how to get the most from your paper collections. The class contains a mixture of PDFs and videos and you can follow along using the same materials used in the class or what you have in your stash already – all you need is around 12 sheets of patterned paper, some white card (or plain) and some embellishments, and I’m willing to bet that all scrapbookers have plenty of all of those!

The class is available to buy now in the shop – Use Your Collection. There is a facebook group set up for participants in the class so if you have already bought it, do pop over and say hello, as well as share your layouts. Here’s what a couple of people have said so far:

“Just indulged myself this afternoon and sat and watched all the videos – absolutely love the concept and will come back to this time and time again for ideas. Now going to sort through my stash and see if I can put enough together to make my own collection pack – or what the heck – nip on to HLM and do a bit of shopping. Thank you Niki I think this is a great idea and hope there are more to come xx”

“Downloaded all pdf’s to my tablet so I can see them off line. Now to check which photos I need. Classes very clear and I look forward to impressing my crop buddies on Saturday”

Here’s a few sneak peeks of my finished layouts:




I hope you’ll join me in ‘Use Your Collection‘ – see you in class!

    What a fabulous idea Niki, and I know from seeing you scrap that you are a master at making collections work and using them all up.
