Marah Mayhem

Saturday we had the honor of hosting 2 classes taught by internationally known Designer Marah Johnson. Marah is a lead designer for Creative Imaginations and has designed several popular scrapbooking collections. She is known for experimentation in her art and she has never been one to be driven by the norm. Marah is always striving to try something new. Whether it is combinations of colors, textures and techniques. It is that fearless ability to try the unknown that has lead to her success as an artist. We witnessed and experienced Marah's talent with tons of glitter, alcohol inks, flocked papers and cardboard! Most of the class participants left with ink stained fingers and glittered faces but everyone had a fantastic time with smiles all around. We would like to thank Marah for spending the day with us and invite her back anytime.

We're totally hyped... Marah Johnson's visit to Scrapbook Place is only is 3 1/2 weeks away! Marah will be here Saturday, October 17th and she will be teaching not one but two totally awesome technique classes!! The first is called the "Bird Book" using the ever polpular Tidepools collection and the second is a mini book based on the "TWILIGHT" saga. Both classes are technique heavy and you're sure to leave with a ton of sparkle and maybe inky fingers.

Bird Book - Sign up here

Twilight Book - sign up here
Here's Marah's bio for those of you who aren't familiar with her or her work.....
I grew up all over the United States. During my young childhood, my parents embraced the true “hippie” lifestyle and spent much time moving from place to place making and selling their art. Most of my parent’s friends were artisans or craftsmen. I would spend hours watching them create, and, after my constant pestering, nearly all of them would let me have a hand at their trade. By the age of six, I could tool leather, bead on a loom, carve faces from clay, and sew doll clothing on my sewing machine. I was always happiest if my hands were busy. That is still the case today.

More CHA Goodies have arrived

This past week we have been inundated with boxes from our UPS Guy Joe. In an earlier post we mentioned all our goodies from 7 Gypsies - the Binderie is here, SEI, Creative Imaginations, Tapestry, Tattered Angels and Quickutz plus our shopping bags. Yes, our shopping bags are finally here, and the good news is we are NOT dicontinuing our "return a bag get a punch" program. We started this program at the beginning of this year, and if you haven't 'cashed in' here's how it works - for each Scrapbook Place bag you bring back or reuse, we will give you one punch on your Frequent Buyer card. Empty your closets today, you might end up with a full card worth 15% off your next purchase.

We did choose a winner for our August challenge in an earlier post today, but we didn't get the layout pictures posted so here they are. The challenge is a great way to show how many people can use the same products and get totally different results.

Michelle Van Etten is coming to Scrapbook Place

On the last day of CHA, we were enjoying a hot cup of coffee in front of the Graphic 45 booth and up walks Michelle Van Etten. We started talking and she asked if we'd like to have her come to the store to teach a class or two. Of course, we agreed right away and have now finalized all the details. Michelle will be teaching two fabulous classes for us featuring products from Graphic 45, Tattered Angels and Prima, all of our favorites. Find out a bit more info about Michelle...

Michelle has been passionate about scrapbooking since the middle of 2005 and has been teaching since Jan 2006. She is currently married to the love of her life Jim and they have 2 lively adorable children James 6 and Malia 2.She resides in Valrico, Florida where the sun shines most of the time. She has a degree in Psychology but chooses to stay home with her kids. Her passion for scrapbooking began as a way to showcase pictures of her family but she soon realized it was more a way of life, documenting and recording the events that shape our lives.

Michelle has been blessed by having the support and endorsement of many companies in her career. She is an endorsed educator for Canon, Prima Marketing Inc, Tattered Angels, Accucut, Sassafras Las, Sukara, Beacon Adhesives, KI Memories, Graphic 45, and Serif. These companies are represented in most all classes she teaches.

The biggest dream for Michelle came true last year when she co-created a line of clear albums for Prima. They designed the extremely popular "Build-A-Book", manufactured by Prima Marketing, Inc. The collection has over 35 interchangeable pages that all work together to allow the artist to create their own unique album. As a Clear Album expert she co-authored 2 books on the subject for Design Originals "Clear Cards" and "Clear Classy Albums". Michelle is currently on the Tattered Angels Design Team and Crafty Secrets where she gets the honor of playing with the hottest products on the market.

Michelle’s personal style reflects her personality, a little eclectic and whimsical with a sense of balance. Her work is Shabby Chic Eclectic and very dimensional. She loves to create her own embellishments using the papers as a foundation. If you ask her students they would say she is very upbeat and has a ton of energy. She would just say that energy is just her passion for teaching.

She has had the honor and distinction of teaching at CKU for 2 years and now will be teaching for Canon USA at many CKCs and the 1st ever CK Digital Scrapbook Retreat. In 2 years she has traveled all over the USA, Canada 2 times, Holland 2 times, France, Italy, and Germany. Who knows where this year will take her but one things for sure it will be great.

Michelle has been published over 100 times and is one of the featured artists in the new Memory Makers Books “Outstanding Mini Albums” by Jessica Acs. The book can be ordered at

Ok, so now that you have gotten to 'meet' Michelle, let's get down to the details. As we mentioned, she will be teacheing two classes on Friday, September 11th and Saturday, September 12th, 2009. The Friday class is called 'It's All About the Layers' and we have the class sample on display in the store. Then on Saturday, Michelle will be teaching a class called 'Tattered Traveler' and we will have the class sample this week. Here are a couple pictures as a sneek peak...
