UPDATED: valentine altered book class…

UPDATE: i was able to add a few more slots to this class over the weekend, and i think there are still 1 or 2 left. if you are interested, please call SCRAPBOOK 911 {210-492-1984} ASAP as i won’t be able to add any more spaces – my supplies have been exhausted!

also, i’ve decided to include a light lunch with this class – since it’s a WHOLE 5 hours and runs through lunch. i want you alert and HAPPY during the WHOLE class, so we’ll take a little break around lunch time. there won’t be time for you to leave, or order-in though, so hopefully you’ll like what we have! 

for those of you who were wondering – i have decided to teach another altered book class next month. the book will be valentine themed and the class will be held at SCRAPBOOK 911 on february 13th from 10:00 to 3:00, and the price of the class will be 45.00. 

here are some pics of the book; i’ll give you a peek at some of the details…

the book features papers by jenni bowlin, embellies by tim holtz and LOTS and LOTS of junque from my vintage stash of goodies!

space in this class is LIMITED and i won’t be able to add any more slots at a later date {like i did last time}, so please call the store to sign up if you are interested.

i have been kicking around the idea of offering a few altered book classes a year {maybe 3 or 4} – each one centered around a different holiday or season.  i think altered books are a really unique and fun thing to “decorate” with. and having done the Christmas book and now the Valentine’s book, i thought why not do some for the other major holidays? i think halloween would ESPECIALLY be fun! if you like this idea, please post a comment or drop me a note. these books take SO much time to design and even MORE time to prepare for {all the cutting and packing up the goodies} that i DON’T want to spend time designing more books if the interest is NOT there for them!

hope to hear from you! thanks… tami

mom and me class pics…

i have pics to share from my mom & me class this past saturday… we made a 6 X 6 “my year” album that the kids can fill up with photos from 2010.

the mom & me class has gotten SO BIG – that i’ve had to add another session for each class, so i now have both a morning and afternoon session each month! a BIG, HUGE thank you to all of you – kids AND moms – who have come every month {and all you new guys too} who have made that addition NECESSARY!

i’m having another class this month – the “key to my heart” wall decor for Valentine’s Day.  unfortunately, i believe that both sessions are already full. BUT – if you are interested, PLEASE go ahead and get on the wait list; there may be a cancellation! i may also be able to gather up some more supplies – although i know i don’t have any more of the giant keys and won’t be able to get my hands on any more.

next month’s project is a “friend’s word book“…

you can sign up for this class now! there will be both a morning and an afternoon session. i had purchased these books awhile back and was able to get my hands on a few more from SEI, but once they are gone – they are gone;  i won’t be able to get any more. i thought they’d be perfect for the kids to put pics of their friends in! the kiddos will get to be messy for this class – there is some shimmery, pearly paint involved! all the papers and ribbons are precut so all they have to do after the paint dries is glue and go!

there have been some requests to do some classes during SPRING BREAK so i have tentatively put 3 classes on the scrapbook 911 calendar. 2 classes WITHOUT moms {of course you can still come if you want to} and 1 class with moms. i’ve scheduled BOTH a morning and afternoon session for all 3 classes – again though – that’s tentative! i’ll be polling the january 30th mom and me classes to see what level of interest there is. if you ARE interested, please drop me a line or comment here too! the class would be the same format – 2 hours – working on 1 project. i was thinking of doing a squash mini album and maybe a paper bag mini album, but i’m not sure yet about the third project. i’m open to suggestions too!

thanks again everyone! i REALLY enjoy teaching this class; the kids are great and we all have a LOT of fun!

NEW Reminisce valentine line… VALENTINE’S NIGHT!

REMINISCE has just released a brand new Valentine’s line, just in time for all your LOVE-ly Valentine projects! it’s called VALENTINE’S NIGHTS and it reminds me of black ties, red roses and champagne!

it’s very formal and just GORGEOUS! the colors are deep, rich, velvety red, pitch black and soft, buttery gold. Lots of sparkle too, foil papers and glittery papers with hearts, scrolls and a damask pattern. VERY grown up and sophisticated!

i did 2 projects using the new line, first is a trio of cards…

Reminisce included some fabulous embellies with this line – cute little love words to mix and match, beautiful foil cardstock stickers and strips. it made it easy to create these cards. i just added a little ribbon, trim and bling!

and then i did a “10 things i love about you” mini album as a special gift for my dh for valentine’s day…

again, the embellies made this project fun and easy to do, i added a few chipboard and foam letters, some bling and ribbons and trim.

please check out the REMINISCE BLOG in the next few weeks, i’m sure they will be featuring some great projects from the DT!


two years!

i can’t believe it’s been TWO WHOLE years since i began this blog!

in those 2 years i’ve added 192 posts and have had 35,674 views of my blog – not too shabby! especially considering i had  doubts about being able to maintain and keep it current.

thanks to EVERYONE who has helped keep me motivated to continue blogging by dropping in to visit from time to time. thanks also for all the encouraging comments that have been posted!

i plan to keep plugging away – too late to turn back now! LOL! stay tuned to see what’s new for 2010!
