{all in the family} altered book class

i know… i know… i’m a day (or so) late with this – but i TRIED!

but i am FINALLY done with the sample! if i could have stopped myself from going back and rethinking and adding MORE goodies and little touches MAYBE i could have finished on time :)

here are pics of the book…

detail Collage

i added some NEW! elements to this book including file cabinet “drawers” on the side of the book that REALLY open and a mini “journal” that is part of the book and can be opened.

also, in addition to all the little treasures and trinkets i add, we’ll be using some REAL vintage office products in the class as well, like this old, huge, 30 pound dymo label maker…

dymo (1024x768)

you’ll use it to create your own custom label to use in the book…

dymo 2 (768x1024)

you can also select a custom date and use this vintage “received” stamp to add an accent to a folder in your. the “confidential” stamp on the front of the folder is also from a vintage stamp…

round stamp 2 (1024x760)

round stamp (768x1024)

i’ve also created some custom printables using vintage ephemera like the vintage photo folder on the front cover, old dictionary pages, a family tree and a family records page.

here are the details:

date: saturday, june 11

time: 12:00 to 5:00

cost:$68

supply list: CLICK HERE

if you are interested in this class, please call Scrapbook N’ More to sign up or to request more information {830} 214-1690. and PLEASE call as soon as you can.

this class MAY have to be rescheduled if we do not get enough sign ups. my altered book classes are too labor intensive to teach to a small class. i HOPE this will not happen! please help spread the word!

i usually plan the altered book classes around holidays or special occasions so am on the lookout for paper lines to use WELL in advance. i had wanted to do a family altered book, but had not found a paper line i liked. i happened to see this FAB line by Kaiser during one of my classes at SBNM last month and thought it would be perfect for the book and it would be GREAT if i could schedule it before father’s day. i knew it would be pushing it, but hadn’t realized how crowded my schedule would be with personal items in the following weeks. i’m really excited about how the book turned out though, and hope you will be to!

thanks!

family altered book class…

HiYa!

well i’m behind – AS USUAL – and am furiously working to complete the family altered book sample.

the class is scheduled for 6/11 – i hope you saved the date!

i have had a family book on the “back burner” for quite awhile so i have some great junque stashed away for this project. combine that with the fabulous “vintage office” vibe of the paper collection – a style i LOVE – and avidly collect -and the pile of goodies i pulled to play with is pretty outta control!

i literally had to STOP pulling pretties!

here are some shots of what i pulled, followed by some close up pics. what will make the cut?


closeups…


i’m predicting this book will be pretty JAM packed with JUNQUE!

the masculine flavor of the paper and vintage office theme will make this a perfect gift for dad, granddad, hubby or son – and class is timed perfectly to create this book for father’s day!

i am hoping to finalize all the details and have the sample completed and dropped off by this weekend. i DID say hoping – figured if i told you my plans i’d have more motivation to stick to it!

thanks for your continued interest in these classes…

classes this saturday!

i am teaching 2 classes this satuday…

first up is a mini album class featuring the TOY BOX line from Bo Bunny..

collage pic

this book is a terrific way to tell the “story” of YOUR kiddos or grandkiddos in photos. great for gifting to!

this bright and colorful mixed media album features 4 wood pages separated by a felt page, a tag pocket page and a mini file folder page. the mini file folder page opens to reveal a spot for journaling as well as for extra photos.

there are LOTS of spaces for photos too as some of the photo mats are “flaps” that open to reveal MORE places to add photos. also numerous pockets, tags and such to make the book interesting.

this is a simple project that even a beginner paper crafter can tackle, but i think experienced crafters will find a few new ideas and techniques as well.

space for this class is VERY limited, call Scrapbook n’ More at 830-214-1690 to sign up or for more info.

saturday, may 21

10:00 to 12:30

NSD finale…

all packed up and on the way home with a bundle of FINISHED layouts!

here are a few others i finished tonight…

having 2 boys i don’t usually get to do feminine, flowery or frilly layouts. but this last group includes ALL those elements!

first up are the sample layouts for my monthly money $aving $ketches class. susan got some gorgeous papers in at Scrapbook n’ More that i thought would be perfect for Mother’s Day…


in this class you select one group of papers, cut once and assemble 2 – 2 page layouts using my sketch. it’s a great way to get a lot of scrapping done quickly! especially good for photos with coordinating colors, photos that require multiple layouts or scrapping for multiple children or albums. and if you use double sided papers, you can end up with 2 totally different layouts! you can take this class at scrapbook n’ more or contact me about getting the class through email.

this last layout is fun and funky! mom and i went to the barry manilow concert – you know what they say – manilow fans are the “barry” best!


the colors in the photos were so wacky and the photos themselves weren’t all that great, so i figured I may as well have fun with the layout!

hope you all had a fun, fabulous and productive NSD!

altered book classes…

SAVE THE DATE!

please mark saturday, june 11 on your calendar as the date of my next altered book class.

i will be using the STORY BOOK collection by KaiserCraft…


the theme of the book will be FAMILY and i think the paper choice and overall feel of the book would make it a perfect gift idea for Father’s Day.

i am also working on a project, possibly a mini album or DE-constructed altered book using FAIRY DUST collection by KaiserCraft…


and finally… a question for YOU the studio audience!

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

is there ANY interest on an altered book using the ENCHANTED FOREST line from G45?

i loved the look of the line when I saw it in person, but dismissed it as a possible altered book subject as i 

 sure what theme or direction a book using this line would take.

BUT- after i used the Enchanted Forest line to design my layout for this month’s PhotoFULL layout i REALLY fell in love with it! it is just a BEAUTIFUL line with fabulous colors and illustrations. (for pic of layout – see previous post).

SO? any interest? it would be great for pics of the renfests you and your family may have attended, engagement photo, princess photos of your little royal or whatever other themed photos you could come up with.

post your YAY or NAY comments here!

{livre de l’amour} valentine book

hi all!

the sample for the {livre de l’amour} valentine book is done!

the book came together quickly, and i was really happy with how it turned out, and hope you will like it too.

the 12 page mini book is done in a mixed media style with pages of multiple sizes and types: old book covers, diecut chipboard, vintage envelopes, old kraft file folders, paper lunch bags, 30’s bingo cards as well as a few heavy-weight cardstock pieces all serve as a background to build on using the romantic MON AMOUR line from Graphic 45. there are pockets, tags, folders and more with lots of places to add photos, journaling and love notes. many little treasures and trinkets from my “junque” stash were used to embellish the book. a perfect gift for your valentine, or for gifting for a wedding or anniversary. the book focuses more on “love” and “romance” than on “valentine’s day” so think outside the holiday.

this book has many of the same elements that my altered books have – just without the book!

here are some collage pics of the finished book {click to enlarge}…
