{dicken’s christmas} altered book class

hello all!

i am BUSY getting ready for the {dicken’s christmas} altered book class THIS saturday, november 7!

dickens altered book wm  dickens christmas - collage 2 

there are still a few spots left for the class!

if you have been wanting to try out on of my altered book classes, this one would be a GOOD one to start with.

the structure is a little simpler – we are concentrating more on embellishing and fun elements like the “12 days to christmas” countdown CENTERFOLD!

we are also doing some stamping and spritzing elements during the class.

it also looks like the actual number of the people in class will be smaller than usual as there are a lot of students electing to purchase class kits instead. so i’ll be able to give students in the class more individual attention and there will be a little more “room to groove”.

you can call scrapbook n’ more to sign up for the class: 830-214-1690 to sign up or get more information. and if you can’t make the class, kits ARE available for $5 more. kits will have any stamping or spritzing done for you and include full written directions as well as color photos.

you can find the complete supply list for the class here: CLASS SUPPLY LIST

we will have a snack about halfway through the class and anyone who can arrive by 11:30, please do so. i’ll get you started on some of the stamping and spritzing elements. but you WON’T miss anything if you can’t come early!

please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!



eerily enchanting…

the next book in my series of altered book classes will be…

EERILY ENCHANTING; featuring An Eerie Tale Collection from Graphic 45

i prowled through my stash and compiled an gargantuan array of trinkets, treasures and geegaws as possible embellishments for this book – take a peek at them…

altered book 1 (1024x683) altered book 2 (1024x683) altered book 3 (1024x683) altered book 4 (1024x683) altered book 5 (1024x683) altered book 6 (1024x683)

“witch” ones will make it in the book? how many can i possibly find places for? as usual as MANY as possible!!!

i hope to have some pics up of the book as it’s being built; so keep an eye out for new posts.

the class date is saturday, august 2, cost is $65. you can sign up now if you like by calling Scrapbook N’ More at (830) 214-1690.

— this is my 600th post here on my blog!!!


psst… it’s all done…

i feel like i’ve given birth to another child! LOL!

i FINALLY finished the travel altered book after days of being locked away in my studio!

i had NO idea that i had collected so much travel “junque”. it took quite awhile to try to work as much of it in as i could.

this book is a lot different than the other altered books i’ve done; there are two or three times more places for fabulous vacation pics and plenty of pockets to tuck little paper treasures.

there are also many custom created embellishments designed JUST for this book.


wanna peek? it will be a day or two before i get a chance to take pics and get a FULL announcement ready, but i’ve snapped a few pics to give you a little taste {and yes, the propeller spins!}…

cover (830x1024)  open (1024x802)

spine (496x1024) pic section (683x1024) 

 pull out 1 (817x1024)  stereo card (729x1024)

tags (746x1024) ticket envie (777x1024)

travel journal (743x1024) pullout 2 (1024x656)

thanks to all of you who have already signed up for this class site unseen – i hope the finished book does not disappoint!

if you haven’t signed up and are interested, please plan to sign up soon. there are a few less seats due to the size of the crop room at Scrapbook N’ More. if you haven’t been by the store – the crop room IS nice and roomy, but layout and table sizes differ from Stamp Antonio. Everyone should be able to have their own table though.

thanks for the continued interest in this class series!
