Welcome to the blog celebration of the Big Idea Festival Each day, from August 15th – 26th, we will highlight a participating teacher and giveaway BPC goodies here on the blog. And you won’t want to miss what the teacher has provided in the FREE classroom, you can still register here.

Today's participating teacher is Emily Falconbridge, learn more about her

Emily Falconbridge loves to make stuff. With a mess in front of her and paintbrush in her hand, she is most happy and content with the world! Creating is her time to think, time to play, time to be free. Having such an outlet helps her to be a better mumma to her little beansprouts Ivy, Yindi & Banjo and wife to her absent-minded but adorable husband Mick.

Don't forget to enter the Jenni Bowlin  product giveaway inside the classroom (you can still register here)

BPC $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway

How to Enter: Leave a comment on the blog and tell us what crafts you would like to learn about. Giveaway closes 8/21 at 9:00 am PST.

I would like to learn quilling. I am certain it is not difficult, but there is usually some super hints that a novice could use. I did a collage when I took Emily's Got Paint class and would like to learn more about collage.

Everyone has such good ideas for what they would like to learn.Can i just say 'ditto'? I think all of them sound wonderful although I'm probably to chicken to try a few of them!

I would like to learn how to take an old book, and alter it to work as a journal I can drop into my purse, or an interesting mini book.

I think that a card-making class focused on different folding techniques would be interesting. Maybe just a "folding" class that could transfer to cards or LOs. Thanks!
