Sponsor Giveaways | Green Frog Studio, Up & Running, Claudine Hellmuth for Big Picture Classes

GIVEAWAY | Two people will each receive a spot in the Up & Running Summer 5K Beginners Course, which starts on 13 June.

Up & Running provides unique online running classes for women. If you've always thought running was reserved for sporty types with bouncing ponytails, we're here to help you discover that running is for everyone. Our 5K Beginners Course is not the usual boring "walk 5 mins, run 5 minutes" program. We offer expert coaching from renowned coach Julia Jones, unlimited support from our community forums, and a mind and body approach that has been tried and tested with thousands of women around the world. Whether you've dabbled in running before or completely new to exercise, we'll not only help you start running safely, we'll get your mind in the right place too.

"Up & Running really has been the best thing I have done for myself in years, and not just for the running. My confidence and happiness in my own skin has increased so much and I love what my body can DO, rather than obsessing about what it looks like."
- Philippa, UK, Spring 5K course

GIVEAWAY | One person will receive a spot in Celine Navarro and Karine Cazenave-Tapie's upcoming Summer Camp 2011 online workshop.

Céline and Karine are together again to bring you inspiration, right at home, with their Summer Camp 2011 online workshop! Whether you want to follow every single class or at a self-paced rhythm, they will teach you new techniques, new color palettes, new way of designing your layouts!

You read it well! 5 languages! Scrapbooking is universal but not our language! So, whether you speak french, english, spanish, italian or portuguese, you’ll be able to sign up for our Summer Camp class! Isn’t that cool?

Class starts on June 28th and ends on August 28th and includes:


  • 16 layouts made by Karine and Céline.

  • 2 mini albums (one with Karine and one with Céline).

  • A workshop posted every Tuesday and its inspiration posted every Friday by Céline and Karine : two different layouts to inspire you twice more! It’s up to you to choose which layout you’d like to make or if you make them two!

  • Mini album Class with Céline end of July.

  • Mini album Class with Karine end of August.

  • Techniques, ideas, color combos, design, sketches tested and approved by Céline and Karine.


Like its name says it, the SUMMER CAMP online class will be SUMMER-themed: holidays, travels, family moments, time with friends, outdoors, water, kids…
