christmas classes…

if you’ve got some time for crafting this holiday season, i have 2 class offerings for you…

both feature Graphic 45’s Christmas Emporium line and Clearsnap products…

there are still a few spots left in my CHRISTMAS SPIRIT altered book class that i’ll be teaching at Stamp Antonio on sunday, december 4th… 

this book is part of my series of altered books and includes some new folds and ideas. a free follow up class will be offered on december 15 to give you an opportunity to finish up any details that we don’t get to complete in class.

call Stamp Antonio at 210-764-7900 to sign up or to get more information.

and on saturday, december 10th, i’ll be teaching MERRY OL’ CHRISTMAS altered ATC tray at Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels…

in this class, we’ll be create a vintage-inspired Christmas Décor’ piece that you will enjoy displaying for years to come. papers from Graphic 45’s Christmas Emporium line, products from Clearsnap, and goodies from my vintage and not so vintage stash will be used to turn an ATC tray from plain to fabulous! lots of tiny details that will have you and your guests noticing something new each time you look at it.

you will need to chose black or winter white for the color of the tray when you sign up, so call early to ensure you get the color you want. please call Scrapbook N’ More at (830) 214-1690 or e-mail susan at create@scrapbooknmore.net for more information or to sign up. Scrapbook N’ More had been having trouble with their phone lines, so please e-mail if you can’t reach them by phone.

and for both of these classes, please note that some pieces and images may vary from the sample.

space for each is also very limited due to supplies on hand, so be sure to sign up early if you would like to take either of them.

class supplies for both classes can be found in my left sidebar, right under the snow angel blinkie.

feel free to contact me with any questions you have!

date for “Christmas Spirit” altered book class…

we’ve set the date! so mark your calendar’s! the Christmas Spirit altered book class will be held at Stamp Antonio on Sunday, December 4 from 12:00 to 5:00. you can call NOW to sign up; space is LIMITED!

i’ll be taking the sample by the store NO LATER than 11/3; but i’ll drop it off earlier if i can so you can see the book in person if you like. you can get a sneak peek HERE!

i’m debating on offering a “follow-up” class on a weeknight after the class – about 2 hours – where you could come and work on finishing up any details you didn’t get to in class. if you think this would be helpful, drop me an e-mail or just post a comment.

thanks!

“christmas spirit” altered book sneak peek!

i’ve been busy finishing up the sample for the second christmas-themed book in my series of altered books…

i’d received numerous requests to do another christmas book by those who missed out on the first book or who wanted to do another christmas book – so i HOPE all of you who asked for this class, like the design and will SIGN UP! LOL!

a date has not yet been set, but i’ll be adding that info to my blog and sending out an e-mail as soon as its available.

here’s a quick look at some of the design elements…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

i added a lot of new and different elements to this book, so if you have taken one or more of my altered book classes, you’ll be able to build onto your  repertoire of tricks and techniques in creating your own altered books.

there are lots of little pockets and flaps to slip little notes and such in; wish lists, shopping lists, receipts – things that might be fun to look back on after a few years. and of course there are places for christmas photos – under the tree, christmas morning, visits with santa, christmas decorations – all would be great.

the papers used are all from Graphic 45’s new Christmas Emporium line. also used are lots of Clearsnap products: Smooch Spritz, Smooch Accent Ink, Chalk Inks and Fairy Dust Glitter. stamps and inks are from Hampton Art, the matching G45 Christmas Emporium Cling Stamps and the brand new ColorBox Decades Antiquing Inks.

and LOTS, and LOTS of vintage and not-so-vintage goodies from my stash! baker’s twine, velvet flowers and leaves, ribbons, pine brances, garland, mini ornaments, tiny bells and safety pins, holly and MORE!
