upcoming classes…

hello!

i will be teaching the photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes for october and november. we’ll have to see after that! we have had some new students join, which is great. i’d like to keep this series going IF there is enough CONSISTENT interest.

i’ll be teaching both classes at Scrapbook n’ More tomorrow, tuesday, 10/25 from 10:30 to 1:30.

another upcoming class is the {girlfriends} altered book class, scheduled for saturday, november 12 from 1:00 to 6:00. this will be a departure from my usual “holiday themed” altered books. i could not resist doing something with the new FABULOUS line by Authentique…

gf1gf2gf3gf4

this book will be a great way to celebrate the friendships in your life. keep it to stash and display pics and treasures from time spent with your “besties”. or make one as a gift for a very special friend {think ahead to christmas! hint hint!} i can’t wait to pull out of the frilly, blingy junque in my stash to use to embellish this book! i hope to have the sample book done soon – but it’s not quite ready yet. i got derailed by a nasty “bug” and got a bit more behind than usual :(

Scrapbook n’ More is already taking sign ups for the class, so if you want to go ahead and reserve your space, please DO SO! here are the deets as i know them right now, i’ll be adding info and the supply list as i have it…

photoFULl & money $avings $ketches classes

hello!

my monthly scrapbook layout classes – photoFULL & money $aving $ketches – will be held at Scrapbook n’ More tomorrow, february 23 from 10:30 to 1:30…

both classes are held during the same class time, so you can take one class or BOTH! you can also come and go as you like during the class time.

with photoFULL you’ll learn how to get MORE photos on your layouts using flaps, pockets and more! each month there is a different layout, sometimes with brand new ideas for adding photos and some that build on previous techniques.

in money $aving $ketches, i’ll show you how to take one set of supplies and turn them into 2 – 2 page layouts!

your $15 class fee for either class includes $5 in supplies to use to create your own unique layout.

sign ups in advance are appreciated as i’ll know how many sets of directions to bring, but you can join in if you decide to come last minute!

thanks!


upcoming classes…

the first photoFULL & money $aving $ketches class of the year was PACKED!

thanks so much for all who attended and the continued interest in these classes!

i have tentatively set the dates for the PF & M$$ classes for the rest of the year, they are subject to change, so please confirm dates with store or check back here for any updates.

this saturday, is my livre de l’amour book class. similar in style to my altered books – but without the book! all the same treasures and trinkets from my stash.

a perfect Valentine’s gift for the one you love or for gifting for an engagement or wedding. although it is “timed” for Valentine’s Day, the theme is more about love and romance than it is “Valentines”.

{livre de l’amour} valentine book

hi all!

the sample for the {livre de l’amour} valentine book is done!

the book came together quickly, and i was really happy with how it turned out, and hope you will like it too.

the 12 page mini book is done in a mixed media style with pages of multiple sizes and types: old book covers, diecut chipboard, vintage envelopes, old kraft file folders, paper lunch bags, 30’s bingo cards as well as a few heavy-weight cardstock pieces all serve as a background to build on using the romantic MON AMOUR line from Graphic 45. there are pockets, tags, folders and more with lots of places to add photos, journaling and love notes. many little treasures and trinkets from my “junque” stash were used to embellish the book. a perfect gift for your valentine, or for gifting for a wedding or anniversary. the book focuses more on “love” and “romance” than on “valentine’s day” so think outside the holiday.

this book has many of the same elements that my altered books have – just without the book!

here are some collage pics of the finished book {click to enlarge}…

Happy New Year!!!

happy new year – a week and a half late! lol!

i realized today that this january marks the beginning of the 8th year of my blog; my first post was january 3, 2008.

i only began blogging because i was tired of answering “no” when asked if i had one. to me “blog” sounded like such a depressing, techie word – B—L—O—G – like a foghorn with a nasal twang – that’s what i heard in my head anyway!

i haven’t always been consistent with my posts, but some of you have hung in there with me anyway from the start. and i’ve picked up a few new readers along the way.

i reread my first blog posts, and if you are interested in seeing what was going on in january 2008, click HERE.

i’m not sure what all 2015 will bring, besides my oldest graduating high school – YIKES! i like to contemplate my teaching and design schedules about this time each year. so far, i haven’t decided to make many changes. i’m still planning on teaching my photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes and planning a few altered book classes. i may offer some seasonal mini book or altered projects, but will probably wait to see if i’m inspired by a paper collection or idea!

the next altered book i am planning is a texas themed one. i am leaning to doing it in the DE-constructed style as i think it will work better with the embellishments i have in mind. i am still collecting tiques and trinkets for it. i will be using stamps from Paper Wings Productions, which is owned and operated by carrie avery which some of you know. i think the class will probably be in march – either before or after spring break. hopefully timed right for your bluebonnet photos!

wishing you all a very happy and prosperous new year!

“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

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.
