let’s Reminisce all day…

i’ll be holding a FULL day of classes featuring products by REMINISCE on saturday, april 21 at Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels…

first, you can come and go anytime between 9:30 and 12:00 and make one or both of these layouts for only $10 each! you can’t buy the supplies to make them for that!

here’s a peak at the Disney Layout…

you have your choice of title — either disney or mickey…

and here’s a look at the Easter Layout…

please note that stickers on either layout may vary…

if you’d like to take a look at these layouts in person, you can view them at Scrapbook N’ More.

then, from 1:00 to 4:00, we’ll be making a Disney aLteReD book

the cost of this class is only $35, and includes everything you need to make it except the glue! also included in the class fee is a 12 X 12 flower sticker sheet and 2 – cardstock embellie sticker sheets! if you haven’t taken an altered book class before, don’t worry. i’ve developed some techniques to make it quick and easy. if you HAVE taken some of my altered book classes, then you’ll be able to put this together in NO time as it’s an easier version of my books. great way to display the BEST photos from your Disney trip or trips!

space in BOTH classes is limited, so please be sure to sign up soon if you’d like to attend. you can contact Susan at {830}214-1690 to sign up or to get more info.  you can sign up for a kit for either of the layouts; which will include a color photo and directions. but written directions will not be available for the Disney aLteReD book.


it’s my 400th post!!!

and… it’s about my upcoming classes…

this tuesday, march 27, i’ll be at Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels teaching PhotoFull and Money $aving Sketches from 10:30 to 1:30. we tried something new last month, and it seemed to work, so we are doing it again. you can come and go anytime between the hours of 10:30 and 1:30 and you can sign up to take either class or BOTH! the crop room will be open after 1:30, so you are also welcome to stay and work on finishing up your layouts after that.

as far as photos go…

for PhotoFull:

bring 20+ photos with the majority being horizontal

*** this is ANOTHER REALLY BIG layout! so bring that BIG stack of photos that you have been avoiding! if you have a REALLY REALLY BIG stack, this layout can be easily extended to add even MORE photos!

and for Money $aving $ketches:

one sketch has room for 5 photos and the other holds 7.  the photo sizes are 4 X 6 and 4 X 4’s. most of the 4 X 6’s are horizontal, and the 4 X 4’s can be either verticals or horizontal photos – you can crop either to fit the 4 X 4’s.

remember that your supplies ARE included in these class fees for both these classes, so you’ll get to select your own papers to match your photos!

other class news

PhotoFull and Money $aving $ketches classes will be on thursday, april 5 and i’m working on getting the samples finished – so more on them later!

i also have a mother’s day class in the works at Stamp Antonio – it is scheduled for sunday, may 6 – time TBA and i’m still working on the sample for that as well.

i can tell you that i’m excited about the concept… we’ll be altering tim holtz confiquration boxes using LOTS of different Clearsnap products. i’m thinking of this class as a “play day”. my plan is to bring inks, glitters, Smooch, Smooch Spritz and Glitz along with some little goodies from my vintage stash, so that you can pick and chose what you like and really customize and personalize your finished project to YOUR mom.

a date for the beach altered book has not been set yet, i didn’t want to get too far ahead of myself, and i’m still waiting on some special little bits and pieces that i ordered to finish up the book.

i’ve also been hitting the internet, flea markets and estate sales to hunt for MORE trinkets and treasures and i’ve made quite a few good finds lately. maybe i’ll post some pics to let you see what goodies i’ve got to use for future altered project.

well, that’s it for now, i guess i’ll start working on getting to my 500th post!

not one but TWO new altered book classes!

for those of you who enjoy creating altered books, i have 2 upcoming classes that may be of interest to you…

i have designed not one but TWO new altered books to add to my series of classes on altered books.

i’ll be teaching this Disney themed altered book, created using papers and embellishments from Reminisce’s Real Magic Line, at Scrapbook N’ More in New Braunfels on April 21…

i would consider this a “beginner” altered book, so if you haven’t taken a class like this before, but are interested in learning how to make altered books, this would be a great class to start with.

you get lots of fun embellies with the class too! a full 12 X 12 sticker sheet of the flower stickers, and 2 other sticker sheet sets, in addition to the other papers, ribbons and of course the book! you can sign up for the class, or get more info by calling {830} 214 1690.

i am working on making this a full “Disney Day“, including a Disney Layouts Class and FREE Disney Make & Take, so stay tuned for more details.

and then, i’ll be teaching this Beach Altered Book, which features papers from Graphic 45’s Tropical Travelogue line and embellies from my vintage stash!

i’ll be teaching this class at Stamp Antonio, but haven’t set a date yet. so stay tuned for more details! i haven’t quite finished it up either, i am waiting on some coordinating stamps and some beach-themed charms to be delivered. but i’ll give you a peek at what i have finished….

this book would be a fabulous way to display your photos from any tropical beach locale from hawaii to corpus christi! keep an eye on my blog for a time and date for this class!

i am also IN LOVE with the new Olde Curiosity Shoppe line by Graphic 45; which is a VERY whimsical vintage-inspired line. i have been debating doing an altered book using this line, but haven’t found just the right direction for it that would make everything “click”. do you like this line? any thoughts for a theme for a book using this line? would you be interested in an altered book class using this line? i’d love to hear from you if you have any comments you’d like to share!

i have an e-mail list just for gals who enjoy altered book classes and want to be sure they hear about any new altered book classes. if that description fits you, please click the “contact me” tab at the top, send me your e-mail addy and ask me to add you to that list.


Scrapbook Studio Classes…

i wanted to post a reminder about my classes at Scrapbook Studio

the disney altered book class is scheduled for this saturday, june 11…

but as of right now, only one person has signed up and i may have to reschedule it. if you were interested in taking this class, please call Craftiques to sign up. i’ll make the decision about rescheduling tomorrow around noon.

i also have a mom & me class scheduled for wednesday, june 15…

i know there was a lot of interest in getting this class going again, but i’m not sure how much everyone’s “summer plans” will affect attendence.
