my STORY book mini album class

hello all!

i have just added a new class to the calendar at Scrapbook n’ More

my STORY book mini album…

collage picthe mini album features the new TOY BOX line by Bo Bunny

this book is a terrific way to tell the “story” of YOUR kiddos or grandkiddos in photos. great for gifting to!

this bright and colorful mixed media album features 4 wood pages separated by a felt page, a tag pocket page and a mini file folder page. the mini file folder page opens to reveal a spot for journaling as well as for extra photos.

there are LOTS of spaces for photos too as some of the photo mats are “flaps” that open to reveal MORE places to add photos. also numerous pockets, tags and such to make the book interesting.

this is a simple project that even a beginner paper crafter can tackle, but i think experienced crafters will find a few new ideas and techniques as well.

space for this class is VERY limited, so if you are interested, please call Scrapbook n’ More at 830-214-1690 to sign up or for more info.

here are the deets:

date: saturday, may 21

time: 10:00 to 12:30

price: $36

i am also planning an art journaling class featuring monoprinting techniques for later that same day. i have not worked out all the details yet, so stay tuned for more on that later!

please let me know if you have any questions, thanks!


TREND-mendous mini album class…

i just finished a mini album using Crate Paper’s new On Trend line

this pretty collection seemed perfect to use with spring just around the corner! i can’t believe that we are almost done with january! this year is flying by.

we are enjoying spring-like weather here in san antonio, but the rodeo always brings cold, rainy and nasty weather. and the rodeo starts in just a few weeks, so i am enjoying the sun while i can.

this album could be used for lots of different photos. “the best day” shows through in the window of the album, but add an “s” and you could change that to “the best days”! OR you could turn the tag around and put a photo or your own title there.

this album features unique pages and lots of little special touches, here’s a peek…

2013-01-28 001 (1024x576)

i’ll be teaching this class at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels; stay tuned for date, time and cost. i’ll be finalizing the details tomorrow. if you are interested in this class, please plan to sign up EARLY as i only have 10 of these albums.

if you had wanted to take the amoure decor class that i taught last week but didn’t get to make it, i had 2 kits left and they are for sale at Scrapbook n’ More. susan also let me leave my scrapbook layout kits at her store on consignment. so if you missed the garage sale, you still have a chance to buy some CHEAP $5 kits!!!

and while we are on the subject of classes, i WILL be teaching an altered book class using the NEW! Graphic 45 Secret Garden line. the class will be held at Stamp Antonio. i’ll start designing the book as soon as the papers arrive. i’ve already started planning as i want to include LOTS of new techniques in the book.

carol at Stamp Antonio suggested that i might do a cookbook album using the other NEW! Graphic 45 line – French Country. it would make a pretty cookbook… any interest?

that’s it for now!


ckc houston…

i am wrapping up all the prep for my 2 classes at CKC Houston

thanks to lori and tinka for their help in getting things ready! i’ve got all the class kits bagged up,  all the supplies are lined up {well almost}, and i’m trying to finish all the last minute little details.

i’ve had months to get ready – and it seems like it has TAKEN months to get ready, but it’s finally almost here! we leave thursday morning for houston; we’ll stop and shop along the way. then friday morning – bright and early – i’ll have my first class!

there were a lot of great classes offered and i couldn’t resist signing up for a few, and tinka, laura and i also signed up for the friday nite CKC crop so we could get a little scrapp’n in.

registration has closed, but you can still sign up for classes and crops once you get to CKC, so you might want to check out what’s offered. my friend charlotte always takes the QUICK QUOTES classes and says they are always great! she likes the SEI classes too, and i’ve enjoyed the one’s of theirs that i have taken.

the classes i’ll be teaching are:


in this class you’ll get to make 2 – 2 page layout. each has a different technique to get MORE photos on your pages. the techniques are easy to learn and to do, so you’ll be able to incorporate them into your own layouts as well.

the “LIFE IS GOOD” MINI ALBUM is my other class…

you’ll get 3 sets of stickers and 1 set of cardstock stickers, a $13.00 value, to use to complete your mini book. this book features papers and embellishments from Reminisce’s Unwritten line. the colors are vintage-bright, and will compliment the photos you use in your book.

i hope to see some of you in houston; i’m looking forward to it!
