UPDATE: dicken’s christmas altered book class

the book is all finished! YAY!

signups for the class have been going well and the class is almost half full already – thanks to those who signed up early!

so without further ado, here are pics of the next book in my altered book series… dicken’s christmas {click to enlarge}

if you have been wanting to try one of my altered book classes, this would be a good one to start with. i’ve kept the structure of the book simple, but we are doing more embellishment and more stamping and inking. I’m hoping the balance will still make the project challenging for my “regulars”.

the “centerfold”, always a main attraction in my books, is something special in this book. the center opens up to reveal a “countdown to christmas”, which consists of 12 mini postcard pockets which hold tags. you can jot down treats or activities that your kids or family can reveal one day at a time.

the book is full of goodies from my “junque” stash: ribbons, charms, flowers, tags, a vintage postcard, christmas trims and custom printed ephemera.

you can view the complete supply list HERE.

in addition to the general supplies, i am recommending a few extra supplies. these are not NEEDED to complete the project, just suggested if you would like to amp up the bLiNg factor! all of these items, as well as most of the general supplies, are available at Scrapbook n’ More. if you would like any of the recommended supplies (or even any general ones), you can call ahead to reserve them to make sure they are available for you to pick up the day of the class. limited quantites MAY be available the day of the class if they are not all sold in preorders.

NEW! ColorBox Teresa Collins Pigment Inks

Gold Shine and Platinum Silver – great new metallic colors that will add a pretty glimmer and shimmer to any of your holiday projects…

   

i used these inks to distress the edges of the photo mats, tags and some of the printed papers pieces…

bling 3   bling 5 bling 2

ColorBox Stylus & Tips, great to use to apply inks to paper and embellishments – especially when using full size inkpads…

  

the styluses & tips are available in packs or individually – just ask.

and lastly, Smooch Glitz in Frost, Smooch Glitz is an easy way to add glitter accents to your projects. you can use on porous or non-porous surfaces. quick drying, you can add multiple layers to add even MORE shimmer!

i used the Smooch Glitz throughout the book to add some frosty glitter to snow, berries, snowflakes, flowers and more…

here are the details for the class:

Dicken’s Christmas Altered Book Class

saturday, november 7

12:00 to 5:00

$65

you can call Scrapbook n’ More to sign up and to reserve your “extra” class supplies at 830-214-1690.

if anyone can come a little early to class – 11:30 or so – i will get you started on stamping and inking, that will hopefully make the process quicker for the other attendees. i have a previous engagement for later in the evening, so i will need to leave by about 5:30-6:00. i am trying – more so that usual – to make sure that everything runs smoothly in class and that we get as much of the book finished as we can during class time. PLEASE DON’T think you are going to miss anything if you don’t come early! but PLEASE DO be on time!

for those of you who have not taken an altered book class from me before, we always finish the basic structure of the book and anything that needs to be done DURING class. but usually a lot of the finishing – adding ribbons, bits, tags, etc. is done on your own. i do provide complete written directions with full color photos to make finishing the project simple. i also leave the sample book at the store for those that want to come in and work on their book there.

if you can’t make the class, kits are available for $70. the extra $5 fee covers extra prep to finish stamping and such for you that is usually done in class.


dicken’s christmas altered book class

hello!

i’m happy to report that the sample book for the christmas altered book class is just about DONE!!! i need to add tags and a few little bits here and there, but it’s about 95% complete.

here are some pics…


  
  
  

i’ve got the cover planned out, but haven’t adhered it yet as i wanted to wait until i finished the inside…


i appreciate all the voting! it was close between G45’s Christmas Carol and Authentique’s Christmastime – the deciding factor was Christmas Carol had shipped and was available and Christmastime had not. since time was getting short, i had to get started!

so here are the details:
