Be Mary!

Hi there!

A few years back, I made some Christmas Tree collages. Recently, my cousin, Mary, requested that I make a similar circle shaped collage and caption it "Be Mary" instead of the traditional "Be Merry."

Of course, I couldn't say no to that!










































I just love how it came out, and luckily she does too!

True Story!

Hello, hello!

I am super excited to tell you about a new class, coming soon, from the fabulous May Flaum. And, I am thrilled to be a contributor!

This class is going to be so much fun! I love scrapbooking my stories and the content of this course is all about how to get your stories told. In addition to the amazing content from May, she will be joined by several guest instructors... including me!

And here's a little sneaky peak of what I have been working on for this class...



My lesson includes a complete start to finish process video of a 12x12 scrapbooking page, along with some of my top tips for storytelling in your scrapbooking. And, I just love how my layout turned out! I can't wait to share it with you in class!

Head on over to CraftWithMay.com to learn all about class and to get registered. May ALWAYS brings it in her classes and goes way above and beyond with her content. You don't want to miss it! Be sure to keep a watch on my Instagram account as I will be giving away a spot in class over there soon...

See you in class!

Color Play - A Brand New Class!

Announcing.....A NEW CLASS!

Color Play...

I am thrilled to announce my brand new class... Color Play! Do you love working with color, or do you find color working against you? Maybe a little of both? In this course, we will take a look at the basics of color theory and how colors relate to one another. Understanding colors and how they work together can help you make both informed color choices and color corrections on your next project!

Please have a look at this little video for more info:


You may purchase class now for only $28

Want a few more details?
Here you go...

With this course, you will receive instant access to the following:
  • THREE intro videos including a supply video, intro to color theory, and photo choice considerations.
  • SIX art journaling videos.
  • THREE scrapbooking videos, including one pocket page. 
  • TWO card making videos.
  • ONE bonus video.
  • That comes to a total of 15 videos and over 4 1/2 hours of video content!
  • A PDF download of course content.
  • Access to me via email for any and all questions, ponderings, etc...
  • Ability to download videos to your own personal computer or compatible device for permanent archiving and viewing.
  • Seven exclusive art journal spreads, 1 exclusive pocket page, 2 exclusive 12x12 layouts, and two exclusive cards that are only available to students in this class and are guaranteed not to be shared elsewhere.
  • Online access to class as long as my website is active (which should be a very long time).
  • Comment form in which to chat and share links to your work.
  • And, what I hope, is an abundant amount of inspiration!
Questions and Answers:


How are these videos different from what you already post for free on YouTube?
  • My YouTube art journaling videos are typically presented in high speed, with no voice over. The videos presented in this course are shown in real time, with narration, including in-depth explanations of my process and artistic choices.
What supplies do I need?
  • I encourage you to take this course regardless of the supplies you currently have! The tips and ideas should provide you with plenty of inspiration to get you started, even if your supplies are limited. That being said, I do realize it is helpful to know more than that. So, the supplies that I use in the course are:  white acrylic paint, white gesso, gelatos, crayola portfolio oil pastels, graphite pencil, pitt pens, dyslusions art journal, various brushes, watercolors, acrylic paints, various scrapbooking and card making supplies. 
  • The classroom page will contain a detailed supply link list
Will this class teach me how you draw your faces?
  • I do not go into an in-depth tutorial on my face drawing approach in this class. I do have a course, Fabulous Faces, that does indeed do that. However, you will be able to follow along with me in real time as I draw each face in my journal.
Do I need to be able to draw to complete this course?
  • Not at all! While I do indeed draw a face on each of the art journal spreads in this class, it is not at all necessary to explore the color theory concepts we will be going over. You may substitute with a stamp, a stencil, a collage, or all of the above!
I'm not an art journaler, will I still learn in this class?
  • Absolutely! The core concepts are explored through art journaling as paint is one of the easiest mediums to fully explain how color works together. We will then go on to look at 3 different scrapbook projects and two different cards to explore how the color concepts translate to crafts outside of art journaling.
I'm just into art journaling, how will the scrapbooking videos benefit me?
  • It's always beneficial to learn about things you don't normally do! And - all of the concepts can easily be translated back to art journaling. Who knows... it might inspire you to incorporate a photo on your next art journaling page!
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
  • While I feel this class is an extremely good value for the price, I would not want anyone to be unhappy with their purchase. If that is indeed the case, please contact me directly and we can work together to resolve any issue you may be having.
Speaking of price, how much is the course?
  • Only $28!
How do I buy this course and access my materials?
  • You may purchase this course in my ETSY SHOP HERE. Upon purchase, you will be sent an email with the PDF download. This PDF also includes the private classroom page link as well as the video passcode. If you have any difficulties with the email, the links, or the PDF... simply email me (soaphouse@gmail.com) and we will resolve any and all issues asap!
What if I have a question that wasn't answered here?

Thanks so much for your loyal support and I look forward to seeing you in class!
