“away we go” travel altered book

introducing…

the next altered book in my series of altered book classes… “away we go” travel themed altered book…

away we go collage 1

away we go - collage 2

this book is designed differently from the other books in this series; there is room for lots of photos, several places for travel notes and pockets to stash souvenirs from your trip. features include several pull outs and a tabbed photo section too.

as usual, lots of great trinkets and treasures from my stash: vintage wooden model airplane propellers, “wings” pins given to kids flying in days past, charms, tokens, old maps and pages from atlases, vintage postcards and stereo cards, travel tickets from the 40’s and lots of custom embellies created just for this project.

this class is almost full and no more seats can be added due to limited parts and pieces. if you are interested, please call Scrapbook N’ More at (830) 214-1690 for information or to sign up.  we’ll keep a waitlist for the class in case slots open up due to cancellations.

a light lunch and snacks are included in the cost of the class and will be served about halfway through the class. alternately, if students prefer to purchase lunch, the store will take orders in advance for delivery during break.

you can view the supply list for the class HERE.

thanks to everyone for the continued interest in this class series.

traveled themed altered book class…

ok! it’s on!

i have set the deets for the travel themed altered book class:

when: saturday, april 12

where: Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels – (830) 214-1690

time: 10:30 to 3:30

cost: $65

i will be working on the book this weekend and hope to have it finished soon; i’ll post pics as soon as i’ve finished.

as usual, munchies will be served about halfway through the class – especially needed since we’ll be working through lunchtime. susan, the store owner, has also offered to take orders for lunch before class, and have it delivered should anyone want to do that instead or in addition to what i’ll be bringing {please bring cash if you think you’ll want to order something}. so you won’t STARVE! LOL!

thanks!

travel themed altered book is a GO!

thanks BUNCHES for all the comments and e-mails concerning my suggestion of a travel themed altered book class! due to the GREAT response, it looks like there is more than enough interest in this class – so i’ll get to work on the designing!

i will be at Scrapbook n’ More this tuesday, february 25, for my PhotoFULL and Money $aving Sketches classes, so i will try to set the date for this class then.

the “create-your-own” altered book class looks like it might be a possibility too. so i’ll keep spinning the idea around and see what happens!

i’ll post more info as soon as i have it. thanks again for your interest in this series.

next altered book? travel themed?

hi!

i’ve had a few ideas brewing for the theme of the next altered book in my altered book class series, one of which was “travel”.

i recently saw the ABROAD line from AUTHENTIQUE and thought it would work well for what i had in mind…

 

 

  

 

 

 

i was looking for a travel themed line that be “neutral” enough to work with most types of travel photos. trips by car, plane, train or boat. in colors that would work well for a variety of photos too. i think the Abroad line fits the bill on both counts.

i’ve been slowly collecting travel themed “junque” too, here are some of my finds…

vintage train tickets from the 40’s…

tickets (1024x683)

vintage maps…

maps (1024x683)

vintage toy model plane wooden propellers…

props (1024x683)

vintage airline “wing” pins that stewardesses used to hand out to children in the 60’s…

wing pins (1024x684)

and vintage travel stereo cards…

stereo cards (1024x683)

i’ve also got some vintage postcards and maybe some other goodies buried in my stash!

i’d like to get a general idea of the interest for this class, which would be held at Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels. if you’d be interested in taking a class to make a travel themed altered book using these supplies and papers, please post a comment or use the contact me form at the top of the page.

comments about this proposed class or ideas for other altered book themes would be welcome.

i’ve also been contemplating a “create your own” altered book class – maybe in late spring or early summer. we’d cover my basic binding technique – for anyone new who hasn’t taken one of my classes before. then move onto different page configurations. i’d have lots of my “junque” stash on hand that could be used on your book. cost -wise, i would probably include a “purchase allowance” in the price of the class, so you could shop for what items you wanted. if you would be interested in attending a class like that, please let me know that also.

thanks for your continued interest in this series…
