{school years} altered book class info…

the sample book for the {school years} altered book class is FINISHED and has been dropped off at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels. YAY!!!

this book is FULL of fabulous vintage finds: cool 40’s skinny pencils, 60’s plastic apple charms, HUGE 6 X 8 phonics cards from the 30’s, flash cards from the 30’s – 50’s, vintage game pieces and MORE! there are also some custom chipboard pieces featuring some fabulous vintage school related ephemera.

the book will be a wonderful way to display not only your child’s school photo through the years, but also their school work and art pieces. each year has a pocket for placing these treasures – you can scan and shrink to fit more in. there are also places for notes and a mini folder at the end that can hold more special momentos.

a great graduation gift idea for not only the graduate, but maybe mom or grandmom.

if you haven’t taken any of my altered book classes before, this is a good one to start with. once you learn the process, most of the book is repetition. if you are an “altered book veteran”, you’ll enjoy learning some new techniques featured in this book.

here are some pics of the finished book…

a few more notes about this class:

{school years} altered book class

hello!

i have started work on my {school years} altered book class!

the papers for the book will be from Graphic 45’s ABC PRIMER collection.

i began pulling pieces and parts from my “junque” stash to use for this book; below is a collage pic of what i’ve selected so far…

collage (1024x512)

i have more goodies to add and i don’t know if all of the above items WILL be included, but i’ll do my best to get as much as i can in!

i think the front cover will have a chalkboard on it, but not sure of the size as yet. i’m playing with a few different sizes and styles.

i am hoping to get the sample book done in the next week or so and will be posting pictures when it is finished.

now, some of the details:

i had scheduled this class with Scrapbook N’ More for may 2 a few months back. unfortunately, neither of us realized that was National Scrapbook Day. susan is planning crops for that weekend, so the class needed to be moved. so it has been rescheduled for may 3. the good news is that if you would like to make a nice long weekend of cropping and crafting, you can plan on attending the crops and staying for the class. you may leave your supplies there for the duration if you attend all events.

i have not set a time or cost yet, but will do so soon. there will also be some info coming on payment and cancellation periods for the altered book classes. you can begin signing up for this class on april 1; i should have all the details set by then. 

if you are interested in this class, please sign up as soon as possible on or after april 1. going forward, i will not be adding spaces to my altered book classes. it is very difficult, time consuming and usually costly, to try and locate and purchase more of the unique items i use for these books. it also creates extra work and confusion for the store. whatever quantities i have on hand will determine class size. 

thanks for the continued interest in this class series…

photoFULL: another BIG ONE! with Christmas fast approaching, i thought you could use some LARGE photoFULL layout! this one holds about 25+ photos a mix of verticals and horizontals, and not much cropping of photos unless you want to.

money $aving $ketches: both layouts hold about 8 photos, there are some large mats so you can crop your photos to fit as you wish. layouts can use horizontal or vertical photos or a mix of both. photos that can be cropped to 4 X 4 are especially good for these layouts.

psst… it’s all done…

i feel like i’ve given birth to another child! LOL!

i FINALLY finished the travel altered book after days of being locked away in my studio!

i had NO idea that i had collected so much travel “junque”. it took quite awhile to try to work as much of it in as i could.

this book is a lot different than the other altered books i’ve done; there are two or three times more places for fabulous vacation pics and plenty of pockets to tuck little paper treasures.

there are also many custom created embellishments designed JUST for this book.

so…

wanna peek? it will be a day or two before i get a chance to take pics and get a FULL announcement ready, but i’ve snapped a few pics to give you a little taste {and yes, the propeller spins!}…

cover (830x1024)  open (1024x802)

spine (496x1024) pic section (683x1024) 

 pull out 1 (817x1024)  stereo card (729x1024)

tags (746x1024) ticket envie (777x1024)

travel journal (743x1024) pullout 2 (1024x656)

thanks to all of you who have already signed up for this class site unseen – i hope the finished book does not disappoint!

if you haven’t signed up and are interested, please plan to sign up soon. there are a few less seats due to the size of the crop room at Scrapbook N’ More. if you haven’t been by the store – the crop room IS nice and roomy, but layout and table sizes differ from Stamp Antonio. Everyone should be able to have their own table though.

thanks for the continued interest in this class series!

classes at scrapbook n’ more…

i’ll be holding my 2 monthly layout classes at SCRAPBOOK N’ MORE in new braunfels on tuesday, october 25th…

MONEY $AVING $KETCHES is from 10-12 am…

you’ll get TWO sketches, and pick one set of supplies – then all you have to do it cut once and you get BOTH layouts! quick & easy! keep in mind that you select your own papers, so only the placement of the pieces will be the same as the sample.

then from 1-3 i’ll teach PHOTOFULL…

this is a BIG, BIG, BIG photofull! it’s another “three” page layout – a fun and unique little concept i’ve come up with – so it holds a TON of photos! with the holidays coming up, you are sure to need options for getting stacks of photos scrapped, so make plans to come check it out. and like with Money $aving $ketches, you get to select your own papers.

you can get all the details for both of these classes, by clicking on the links under the “class photos, descriptions and supplies” tab in the sidebar on the left – right under the blinkie of chris making a snow angel!

thanks,
