{girlfriends} altered book class

hello!

at LONG LAST the sample book for my {girlfriends} altered book class is DONE!

i apologize for the delay in getting this book DONE! i usually allow at least a month for sign ups, for this class there are just TWO WEEKS!

so IF you are interested in this class PLEASE call scrapbook n’ more and sign up! susan and i will be evaluating how many student to prep for, therefore how much paper to purchase, so EARLY sign ups will REALLY help me. and once the supplies are ordered, we are locked into a set number of spots for the class.

so without further ado… here is the sample book…

and here are some shots of the details…

{girlfriends} altered book class

november 12

1:00 to 6:00

$65

i am hoping that the theme will appeal… it is a departure from my usual themed books.

i think this book would make a fabulous gift for your bestie{s} – christmas is coming soon – hint hint! it would also be a great way to display pics and memorabilia from some of your BFF adventures.

if you have been wanting to try one of my book classes, this is a GREAT one to start with! and if you have a teen daughter who likes to craft, this might be a fun class for you both to take.

the book contains lots of treasures and trinkets as usual; i was able to pull out all my best “girlie” embellies!

if you can’t make the class, but would still like to make the book, you can sign up for a kit. you can also sign up for additional kits if you would like to make more than one book.

i’ll be posting the class supply list in the next day or so, so please check back.

thanks for the continued interest in these books!

upcoming classes…

hello!

i will be teaching the photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes for october and november. we’ll have to see after that! we have had some new students join, which is great. i’d like to keep this series going IF there is enough CONSISTENT interest.

i’ll be teaching both classes at Scrapbook n’ More tomorrow, tuesday, 10/25 from 10:30 to 1:30.

another upcoming class is the {girlfriends} altered book class, scheduled for saturday, november 12 from 1:00 to 6:00. this will be a departure from my usual “holiday themed” altered books. i could not resist doing something with the new FABULOUS line by Authentique…

gf1gf2gf3gf4

this book will be a great way to celebrate the friendships in your life. keep it to stash and display pics and treasures from time spent with your “besties”. or make one as a gift for a very special friend {think ahead to christmas! hint hint!} i can’t wait to pull out of the frilly, blingy junque in my stash to use to embellish this book! i hope to have the sample book done soon – but it’s not quite ready yet. i got derailed by a nasty “bug” and got a bit more behind than usual :(

Scrapbook n’ More is already taking sign ups for the class, so if you want to go ahead and reserve your space, please DO SO! here are the deets as i know them right now, i’ll be adding info and the supply list as i have it…

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…

{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}…

{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!


upcoming classes and dates…

hello all!

this month’s photoFULL and money $aving $ketches class will be held on tuesday, september 29 from 10:30 to 1:30 at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels.

another date to add to your calendar is for a Christmas themed altered book class tentatively scheduled for november 7. details to be announced soon.

i am trying to decide on a collection to use for the Christmas book, right now the collections i am thinking about are (please click on link to view the whole collection):

G45’s Christmas Carol

g45 christmas carol use

Authentique’s Christmastime

authentique christmastime

Authentique’s Tidings

authentique tidings

i was also very taken with a new collection from Graphic 45 titled Mon Amour….

g45 mon amour

we’ve only done 2 “love” or “valentine” themed altered books and i’m wondering how much interest there would be in doing one using the Mon Amour collection sometime after the new year.

i’ve set up some polls below, please feel free to play along. i would ask that you ARE somewhat interested in taking part in the class or classes that you are voting for.

 

voting will close a week from now on 9/29. i appreciate your input!

thanks,


{school years} altered book class info…

the sample book for the {school years} altered book class is FINISHED and has been dropped off at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels. YAY!!!

this book is FULL of fabulous vintage finds: cool 40’s skinny pencils, 60’s plastic apple charms, HUGE 6 X 8 phonics cards from the 30’s, flash cards from the 30’s – 50’s, vintage game pieces and MORE! there are also some custom chipboard pieces featuring some fabulous vintage school related ephemera.

the book will be a wonderful way to display not only your child’s school photo through the years, but also their school work and art pieces. each year has a pocket for placing these treasures – you can scan and shrink to fit more in. there are also places for notes and a mini folder at the end that can hold more special momentos.

a great graduation gift idea for not only the graduate, but maybe mom or grandmom.

if you haven’t taken any of my altered book classes before, this is a good one to start with. once you learn the process, most of the book is repetition. if you are an “altered book veteran”, you’ll enjoy learning some new techniques featured in this book.

here are some pics of the finished book…

here are the details:

date: sunday, may 3

time: 12:30 to 5:30

cost: $65 – no kit fee for this class

food for snacktime about half way through class will be provided. NO naptime! LOL!

2) payment must be made 7 days in advance of class date. so please pay by 4/26 to hold your spot for the class.

a few more notes about this class:

1) front cover designs WILL vary, please view this post here for examples: IN SESSION

2) please select “boy” or “girl” so i can customize your kit and cover as best as possible.

i’ll be posting the supply list shortly.

thanks!
