dicken’s christmas altered book class

hello!

i’m happy to report that the sample book for the christmas altered book class is just about DONE!!! i need to add tags and a few little bits here and there, but it’s about 95% complete.

here are some pics…


  
  
  

i’ve got the cover planned out, but haven’t adhered it yet as i wanted to wait until i finished the inside…


i appreciate all the voting! it was close between G45’s Christmas Carol and Authentique’s Christmastime – the deciding factor was Christmas Carol had shipped and was available and Christmastime had not. since time was getting short, i had to get started!

so here are the details:

Dicken’s Christmas altered book

saturday, november 7

12:00 to 5:00

$65

at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels

you can sign up now! i appreciate those of you who sign up early as it helps me with prep knowing about how many class kits to make.

if you can’t make the class, you can order a kit. anything we do in class like stamping, spritzing, etc will be done for you. you’ll also receive complete written directions with color photos. cost of kits is $70 – the extra $5 covers the additional prep work.

“don’t mess with texas” DE-constructed altered book class…

hello!

i finished the sample book for the “don’t mess with texasDE-constructed altered book class late last night {well – early this morning} and dropped it off at Scrapbook n’ More this afternoon.

a BIG – thank you to those of you who signed up in advance – sight unseen – the class is already 2/3 full! i GREATLY appreciate this!

and i must say, those of you who take this class will be getting a BARGAIN! i had to ADD pages to this book in order to get in all the trinkets that i had picked up for it. i kept thinking i didn’t have enough goodies so i kept buying more – needless to say – this book is STUFFED! and since i’d already set the price, you’ll be getting a lot of BANG for your buck!

here a some collage pics of the book and some of the details – click on pics to enlarge…

some of the “junque” included in the book are: vintage rodeo ribbon, repros of vintage postcards, 60’s butter crust bakery receipt and borden’s dairy milk cap, galvanized metal texas cut out, old lone star beer bottlecap, vintage playing cards, 3 cent texas postage stamps, concho and bandana, blue jean pieces, vintage stamped leather piece, metal cookie cutter, texas themed charms and LOTS more!

special thanks to Carrie at Paper Wings Productions for providing the fabulous texas themed stamps used in the book. Scrapbook n’ more carries Paper Wings Production stamps and do have the stamp sets available for sale if you want your own set.

this book would be a great way to display your bluebonnet, texas wildflower, rodeo or texas trip pics. you will also be given supplies and techniques to add MORE pages for MORE photos to your book if you would like.

if you’ve been wanting to try your hand at an altered book, this would be a great class to start with. the techniques are a little easier than those in my “regular” altered book classes. but there is still a LOT going on for those of you who do enjoy my “regular” books!

here are the class details:

date: sunday, march 1

time: 1:30 to 5:30 *** NOTE TIME CHANGE

price: $48 if attending class or $55 for class kit

if you are unable to attend the class, you can sign up for a class kit. the kit will have anything that is done in class using “class supplies” – like stamping – already done for you. complete directions, including color photos, will be included.

i am also offering an add-on, go-along “i {heart} texas” frame kit…

texas frame - wm

this frame includes a scrabble tile tray and tiles spelling out “i {heart} texas”. the frame and tray will be pre-painted, so the kit will be ready for you to assemble. complete directions with color photo included.

if you are taking the “don’t mess with texas” book class, you can add-on this frame class kit for only $12. if you aren’t taking the class, but would like the frame kit, the cost is $15. kits will be available to be picked up on 3/1. i have a very limited number of these kits, so please call and reserve a kit if you would like one.

susan is opening the store JUST FOR US for this class, so if you’d like some “private” shopping time, plan on coming in a little early or staying a little later to shop. the store should be open by 1:00, so drop off your stuff in the back and hit the racks!

AND — mark your calendars – i’ll be offering a school themed altered book class tentatively scheduled for saturday, may 2. i’ll be using G45’s ABC Primer deluxe collector’s edition paper set. more details coming in the next few months. i’ll let you know when you can start signing up! i plan on this book being one where you can display your children’s school pics K thru 12th.

thanks for your continued interest in my altered book classes – i LOVE hunting for trinkets to fill them up with!

ccc collage

cost is $35, and you can make an additional canvas if you like for $20.

YOUR canvas does not have to look like MY canvas unless you want it to. we’ll go over basic techniques for adding layers and texture to your canvas, then you will be able to select from DOZENS of TCW stencils and lots of Clearsnap Inks to create your own custom canvas. i’ll also have a selection of embellishments for you to use – from keys for “manly” canvases to flowers for “girlie” canvases.

these custom canvases would make GREAT christmas gifts!

then, from 5-11, i’ll be hosting at crop at Scrapbook N’ More. bring unfinished “tami” projects or anything you’d like me to help with. cost is only $10, but it you sign up by TODAY, november 5, you will get a $5 credit to use during the crop {not applicable to the $10 crop fee}.

please call Scrapbook N’ More at (830) 214-1690 to sign up for the class or crop or for more info.
