Hello & Welcome to Scrap It Girl’s site.

My real name is Kimberly Congdon and I live in Wisconsin. I am a paper craft instructor, designer, retailer and party planner. I started Scrap It Girl January 2008, after hosting my 1st paper crafts class in my home classroom. Ever since that first class I have expanded my studio and classroom space, added a mini store, and I now teach between 3-5 classes per week. I also sell kits, place orders, teach at other locations, host parties, crops, and have 2 other crafty websites. The best way to reach me is through my facebook page or email me at scrapitgirl@wi.rr.com Thank you

It’s Tuesday Morning! Christmas Tree~

Happy Tuesday Morning!

If it’s cold, icy, or snowing where you are then it’s a perfect day to stay inside to make a quick, unique and fun Holiday gift. Using Tuesday Morning supplies of course!

This is another Christmas Tree idea that has been around for a long time, I first seen a few of them on Pinterest.  Of course every time I see one on-line they look a little different, everyone gets pretty creative with them. I personally prefer using vintage thread spools or a vintage candle stick holder.
If you want to see the cutest trees ever and learn how to make them step by step, then you need to see Margie Romney-Aslett’s Spark the Event workshops.   Margie makes them and hosts on-line workshops teaching you how to make them with her own personal flair. She sells them as kits or you can take her on-line classes.   Please view her site for her Spark The Event classes.   Margie has a class for every season/holiday.   I have only had time for one so far.. but if I had the time I would take them all.  Margie picks up most of her supplies from Target or the dollar store.  So treat yourself to a class with Margie, then you can get started creating your own special homemade Christmas gifts.

Here is my version of the paper tree I made.  I used a few of Margie’s ideas and a few of my own.  I am using  some supplies from Tuesday Morning .   I love the gold textured napkins, the gold and silver trims from the Christmas wrapping area, and the tiny burlap bows that i found in the paper crafts area.

I cut up the entire pack of napkins into a variety of sizes.. all circles of course.

Mini bows are on one tree, notice the gold bow and see the layers of napkins.

A few of my trees.. ready to be delivered to a few of my favorite friends. I have about 10 more to make.

I didn’t give you too many directions or a fabulous supply list because I want you to check out the
Spark Your Event workshops!  And if you do.. please tell her I sent you!

Have a great trip to your local Tuesday Morning to stock up on some fun trims, napkins, and mini bows.

Have a great weekend!

Where am I? Teaching, Creating, & Sharing.

It’s been a while since I updated everyone as to where I am,  so I am using this post to fill you in.

Every Tuesday a.m I am still teaching some kind of paper craft class in my home studio.. I will be hitting my 7 year anniversary of that in January.

Wednesday’s I will be teaching either a private class in my studio, a make up class or a class at my local Hobby Lobby. I have been the paper craft instructor at my hobby lobby since 2009. My local hobby lobby is moving to a new location in January, once we are settled in I will hold a new store crop there and giveaway classes, supplies, and more. So look out for details regarding that special crop event.  I also do evening classes if I am repeating a class or if someone schedules a class for that time. Most of my private classes are now evening classes.

I teach a kids craft class once a month during the school year. These classes are usually Friday’s at 1:30-3:30 and are typically seasonal or holiday projects.

Besides teaching a few classes a week, I also sell kits to all the classes I teach. So if you can’t make it to a class, you can at least get a kit and make it on your own.

I am still teaching cricut classes, mini albums, cards, stamping, tool training, scrapbooking, and more.
Just because my business name is Scrap It Girl.. please don’t think I only scrap. In fact.. my Tuesday class has been more altered art, home décor and holiday décor projects more than it has been scrapbooking.

Besides my paper craft classes.. I still host birthday parties, in store event, classes at schools, crops, and I sell supplies. But more often than not.. you can find me on-line. I have 5 blogs/websites, 5 Facebook business pages, tons of twitter, pinterest, and instagram accounts. So I am on-line a lot of the time. I am also trying to finish up some on-line classes I started early in the summer.. this has been taking up so much time that I slowed down my class schedule. Once I finish with my classes you will see more changes to my on-line accounts.

I still get offered plenty of opportunities to work with many great companies.. but with my busy schedule I plan to hold off on working with any more until January. I will be having a new Design Team call in January in preparation for new things to come. So I hope you apply!

Take a look at some of the companies you can find me currently connected to.
I love them all and I am grateful for all the great opportunities I am given. It’s been a bumpy ride getting to work with amazing companies.. but I know that the ones I am connected to right now are the best I have been with and I am lucky!

The best way to get on my class schedule is to attend a class or message me about a class.. then I will add you to my email list.

Have a great day and I hope to see you soon!
