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…

NSD continued…

still cropping! took awhile to crank out a couple of layouts – BUT…

i designed one layout for my upcoming photoFULL class, then copied it so both kids would each have their own layout.

i was scrappin’ photos from the Sherwood Forest Faire rennaissance festival and was EXCITED to find THE perfect paper for the layouts – G45’s Enchanted Forest Collection. (scrapbook n’ more always has the latest and greatest from Graphic 45).


there are 8 more photos plus journaling “hidden” on this layout! make plans to attend my next PhotoFULL class to find out where they are!

if you live out of the area, you can take my monthly photoFULL or money $aving $ketches classes via email directions that include a supply list, cutting directions, full written directions and full color photos. just use the “contact me” form and request all the details.

photoFULL: another BIG ONE! we are continuing with PAGE PROTECTOR months! during january, february and march photoFULL classes, i’ll be showing you how to get MORE photos on your pages using some of the different page protectors that are out there. if you have christmas photos still to crop, this is a good layout for them! this one holds about 20+ photos a mix of verticals and horizontals – you’ll use 12 horizontals in the page protector portion, and not much cropping of photos unless you want to. ALSO – a BONUS layout you can do using a few extra cardstocks and the leftover printed paper from the layout!

a scrapp’n weekend…

i am at jane’s retreat this weekend, working on my OWN layouts!

i got 5 layouts done last night…

i am trying to actually USE some of my supplies that i have stockpiled, and one of my new favorite techniques is to cover raw chipboard with washi tape. the hearts in the close up of the valentine layout were done that way.

and I know there are only 4 layouts pictured, but I made 2 copies of the wicked layout – one for each kiddo!

more layouts later — hopefully!

the photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes this tuesday, february 25, at Scrapbook N’ More, are the same layout designs as i taught at Stamp Antonio earlier this month. if you weren’t able to make that class, you have another chance at them this tuesday. cost is $15 per class and does include a supply allowance.

beginning in march, i will only be teaching my photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes at Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels – usually on the last tuesday of each month. class time is 10:30 to 1:30 and you can come and go as you like. you can take one class or both, it’s up to you! i’ll be there to help you during the class time.

starting in april – april 10 at 10:30 – Linda Norman will be teaching these 2 classes at her home. Linda has been taking my classes for awhile, and was nice enough to offer to teach these classes for those of you who liked them, but can’t make it out to new braunfels. you can contact Linda at: scrappytherapy@satx.rr.com to sign up or for more information.

Linda will be working a month behind… for instance, the PF and M$$ classes i teach in march at Scrapbook N’ More, will be offered by Linda in April.

last layout for tonight…

i’m calling it quits for the night; here’s my last layout…

Image

this one is of my now SEVENTEEN year old son — when did THAT happen!!!???

for those if you who take my monthly photoFULL classes; this layout may be making an appearance in the next month or so. and if you haven’t tried the class, and would like to find out how I got 18 photos on this layout with room for a few more, plan on attending one of my photoFULL classes to see how to get more photos on YOUR layouts!

photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes…

as promised, i’m providing snippets of layouts for photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes.

i’m HOPING to be able to post this info at least 2-3 days in advance of the classes each month, let’s see how that goes! fingers crossed i’ll be able to stay on top of these classes better than i have in the past. NY resolutions and all that! LOL!

REMEMBER though… that you will be using YOUR OWN papers and embellishments, so your layouts won’t be exactly like mine. you’ll use a sketch to make your layouts uniquely YOUR OWN in both these classes!

here ya’ go…

questions? please contact me! hope to see you there!
