{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!

circus altered book class…

it’s done! it’s FINALLY done! the sample for the circus themed altered book  class at STAMP ANTONIO!

i added lots of fun little embellies and have even designed a hidden pocket to hold a secret book!

Graphic 45 papers from the Le Cirque line and ephemera from GECKO GALZ were used along with some vintage and not so vintage goodies…

NEW aLteReD bOoK class!

i FINALLY have something so show you on the circus-themed altered book class that is scheduled for April 23rd at Stamp Antonio!

although i LOVED the papers, the subject of “circus” had me a bit stumped; i just couldn’t seem to wrap my head around it. i didn’t really think that crafters would want to create this book just to display photos of trips to the circus, although it could be used for that. my altered books usually have a definite use and purpose, practical whimsy i guess you could say. but “circus” was a topic that didn’t seem the least bit “practical”. 

but, after much thought and contemplation {which requires just a FEW more brain cells than “thought”}, i finally had that AHAH! moment… my life was particularly chaotic one day, and i said to myself… “ my life is a CIRCUS!”, and there was my idea and inspiration. create an altered book that documents the three ring circus that is life! 

 once i had the concept in tow, the design flowed a lot quicker. i am going to add “circus” quotes to the book that deal with real life. i think it will be a fun way to “express our STRESS”! LOL! 

photos can be added of REAL life events or scenes… i’m picturing kids making messes, laundry stacked up undone, maybe a to do list with dozens of things on it and nothing crossed off – i think you get the idea, all the things that make YOUR life a CIRCUS! i am hoping you will like the concept. 

i should have the sample COMPLETELY done this weekend and IN Stamp Antonio by Tuesday. i was HOPING to have to done in time to take it in today, as i have classes scheduled, but i still have some parts to complete and little goodies to add. 

in the meantime, since the class is only TWO weeks away, i thought i’d go ahead and give you a little teaser…

 

 i’ll send out another e-mail with more photos when the book is all done. 

please keep in mind that the photo just shows some snippets and nothing is complete yet – not even the cover. but i figured something was better thank nothing. i’ll post again once the sample is done with more photos.

the space for this class is VERY limited – about half the size of my other altered book classes – due to supplies on hand, so if you are interested, please sign up QUICKLY!

 thank you for your interest!
