“by the sea” frame and book class info

i dropped off the samples of these two projects at Scrapbook n’ More today…

by the sea projects - blog - wm

i also finalized the details for the class…

DATE: saturday, july 12

TIME: frame – 12:00 to 1:30 and book – 1:30 to 5:00

COST: frame – $20 and book – $45

receive a $5 discount if you take both classes – only $60

i’ve also added all the class info and supply lists also {see right sidebar}.

please drop by Scrapbook n’ More if you would like to see these samples in person – and plan to SHOP while you are there! susan has been getting BOXES and BOXES of new stuff in! lots of great, fun summer papers, tons of stamping supplies and more! she has also extended her cardstock selection. she is literally having trouble trying to put all the NEW! stuff out – so help her out by buying some of it!

Scrapbook n’ More is easy to get to from San Antonio, just take IH35 north, exit at 189, take the turn around and stay in the left hand lane. the road actually runs into the shopping center {the one with the new alamo drafthouse} head towards the right, the store sign is hidden until you go up aways.

thanks to all of you who took the time to respond about these 2 classes, it really helped me gauge the interest level and be able to order supplies accordingly! please call Scrapbook n’ More at 830-214-1690 for more info or to sign up.

i have also set the date for the HALLOWEEN ALTERED BOOK CLASSplease save the datesaturday, august 2 from 12:00 to 5:00. i’ll be using G45’s EERIE TALES line, based on grimm’s fairy tales. papers should be in soon, and i’m expecting to have the sample done by the end of june at the latest.

thanks!

“by the sea” d-constructed altered book & frame”

hi!

some of you have been asking what i am up to…

i’ve been busy with projects for the Clearsnap catalog and blog, the TCW design team, projects using a new product from Grafix, my monthly classes, gifts for friends and a new “secret” venture i can’t talk about yet — and THIS…

my hubbie and i recently went to port aransas for our anniversary. we had a great time – despite the PILES of seaweed on the beach with more and more coming in with the tide! while battling the seaweed, we started picking up a few shells and some pretty broken bits. i thought the shells would be great to use for a summer beach class, so we picked up a LOT. i hadn’t seen any new beach paper lines, but knew just what i wanted – something with white, aqua and tan – and Susan at Scrapbook n’ More had just ordered JUST the thing i had in mind – Prima’s Seashore line.

the frame base is nice and heavy and we’ll be embellishing it with papers, rope, glitter/glass bead gel and pretty shells…

the book is a D-Constructed altered book – we’ll be tearing up a book and putting it back together in a different way! the hard part of the DIS-assembly will already be done for you so you can concentrate on the fun part! the book contains 8 actual pages – so you’ll have 16 pages {front and back} to add your photos and journaling. and just like with my altered books, there are a few flaps and pockets to create. this project is a little easier than my other altered book classes, so if you were wanting to try one, this one would be great to start with! but don’t worry if you are a “regular” in my altered book classes, i think you will still enjoy this one and find new challenges and techniques.

the book is done in neutrals with pops of aqua, think sand, sea and sky! added textures from rope, burlap, shimmery “smooched” tags and hand dyed vintage rayon ribbons.  lots of fun small embellies to add just the right touch. the book is not over embellished though – to let your great beach photos SHINE! this would be great for black and white or sepia photos too. the cover is embellished with shells, chipboard letters and some shimmer from glitter/glass bead gel…

i’ll have more info for you tomorrow – i’m dropping the samples off at Scrapbook n’ More and setting the deets tomorrow afternoon.

if you are interested in these classes, drop me an e-mail or please plan to sign up fast. i am not sure how soon we need to order supplies – Prima has a “while supplies last” notation. so we may not be able to add spots if the classes fill.

and as for other upcoming classes, it sounds like there is enough interest to do both a halloween and a christmas altered book this year – thanks for all the input. so i am awaiting the arrival of G45’s AN EERIE TALE in order to get started on the halloween book! as soon as i can set a date for it, i’ll let you know!

thanks!


class updates…

i have been working on updating all my class info for june…

the class schedules in the sidebar have all been updated and as you can see, there are 2 new venues on it: SCRAPBOOK STUDIO and SCRAPBOOK N’ MORE.

i’ll be teaching my first classes for “myself” this month under Scrapbook Studio and i’m pretty excited about it!

here are the 2 classes that i’m offering…

the disney altered book is the next book in my “series” of altered books, but it is MUCH simpler than the other classes have been – so it is a great introduction if you haven’t taken an altered book class before. or just a quick and fun class {only 3 hours :) } if you have taken this type of class before. it’s a great way to show off your trip photos.

the summer fun mini album is a new mom & me project. so if you have kids that will soon be out of school and BORED, take them to a class! you and your child will work together on one project during the class time. and you’ll leave with a unique and fun little book that they can fill with photos of their summertime events. this class is geared to kids ages 6 and up.

Susan at Scrapbook N’ More, thanks to some persistant customers, has asked me to come teach a few classes at her store. so i’ve added some daytime classes to her june class schedule. i’ll have photos and more info up later this week.

i have also added the class supplies needed for money $aving $ketches and photoFULL at Stamp Antonio on june 2.

here are peaks at the layouts and links to the supply info…

MONEY $AVING $KETCHES

PHOTOFULL

and, later in the month, i’ll be teaching a fun and bright beach mini album at THE SCRAPBOOKING FACTORY’s  retreat…

i think that’s about all the info i have to share right now! looks like june is going to be PRETTY busy!

i am also hoping that i will be able to share some DT projects with you from Reminisce, Clearsnap and Gecko Galz later this month. i don’t think i’ll be able to leave my studio for the next month unless it’s to teach a class! LOL
