Good morning! I am thrilled to begin a new class journey with you and 2peas!

This is going to a year full of products you have...and some you'll want. We're going to cover a wide range of products. As much as we can fit into 12 months! This class is all about taking a product and saying to yourself, "what else could I do with this?"

We're going to get started this year with

Border Stickers like any other type of sticker can really help speed up your scrapbooking process. It's so nice to be able to just stick it on. No cutting, coloring, or glueing. Love quick pages? Make Border Stickers your friend. But, we can push them a little further than just a 12" border. And that's what we're going to do!

Please go check out the class here . You can download a PDF with more photos and instructions as well as watch a fun little video I made.

The class homepage is here , this is where you can look throughout the year to see the latest projects and discussions.

As always we'll have a challenge associated with the class. Here's the info:

This month your challenge is to create a layout/card/project on which you've used BORDER STICKERS. Try to use them in a way you never have before!

To participate in the Challenge:

-Create a project on which you've used BORDER STICKERS.

-Project can Digital, Traditional or a Hybrid.

-Submit your layout by uploading to the gallery by February 9, 2011 11:59 CST. Don't forget to click the box next to this class (Products You Love Every Which Way: January 2011) on Step 4 of uploading.

I will pick a winner randomly from all the submissions to win a Gift Certificate to Two Peas and post the winner on the Education Board on February 10th. For every submission to this class you will earn a badge!

Please let me know what you think! I can't wait to share this adventure through our stashes with you!

Thanks so much for the challenge, Shannon! While I didn't use my border stickers in any amazing, creative way, you inspired me to pull them out and use them! Thanks a bunch.

I love this class - love it !

I will admit, when I first saw the title of the class I was worried that it was mostly going to be about "new" products and I was going to have to buy something to make the class project.

I'm so glad to see that this month, at least, was using products we already had but in a new way

Thanks Shannon !!

Shannon, I LOVED this class! I knew right away what I wanted to do for it.

I can't wait to see what else you have for us this year - it feels so good to use stuff that I have & have never found a use for (of course I couldn't link those products b/c they were so old!) Thank you soooo much!

Loving this free class. This is my year for keeping up my scrapbooking so I've been looking for inspiration and have now found it.

Great to be able to use what I thought was rubbish that I should have gotten rid of but couldn't bare to throw anything away. Hoping to do my take on LO 2 tonight.

Managed to do all 3 layouts but the one I enjoyed the most was the page outline. I think it was because it took me out of my neat and tidy comfort zone of scrapping.

oh my gosh I have a huge stash of border stickers. I think I have a few Sass Lass sheets that I have never ever used. I've just finished the stamping challenge so I might just have to give this a go now .

Good Morning!

Love the class - I always wondered what else I could do with all those border punch outs / tear outs in kits! Going to give this a go!
