{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}…

valentine’s projects…

hello!

i’ve posted several Valentine’s Day projects on the ClearSnap Blog in the last few weeks! if you are looking for some last minute inspiration for the “day of love”, head on over to check out my projects as well as those from the other ClearSnap Creative Team members. there are a LOT of terrific cards, projects and more posted, and all include supply lists, and some include directions and or videos.

a few days ago, i posted a project designed with kid’s in mind. a little necklace with a holder that you can slip a box of conversation hearts in…

convo box - wm (1024x683)

i thought this would make a cute class exchange gift; the kiddos could wear their candy while they eat it! and the project is simple enough that the kids can help make a lot of the parts for the project themselves. i also posted a video that shows how to make the holders step-by-step. you can view the post and the video HERE!

happy valentine’s day!!!

UPDATED: valentine altered book class…

UPDATE: i was able to add a few more slots to this class over the weekend, and i think there are still 1 or 2 left. if you are interested, please call SCRAPBOOK 911 {210-492-1984} ASAP as i won’t be able to add any more spaces – my supplies have been exhausted!

also, i’ve decided to include a light lunch with this class – since it’s a WHOLE 5 hours and runs through lunch. i want you alert and HAPPY during the WHOLE class, so we’ll take a little break around lunch time. there won’t be time for you to leave, or order-in though, so hopefully you’ll like what we have! 

for those of you who were wondering – i have decided to teach another altered book class next month. the book will be valentine themed and the class will be held at SCRAPBOOK 911 on february 13th from 10:00 to 3:00, and the price of the class will be 45.00. 

here are some pics of the book; i’ll give you a peek at some of the details…

the book features papers by jenni bowlin, embellies by tim holtz and LOTS and LOTS of junque from my vintage stash of goodies!

space in this class is LIMITED and i won’t be able to add any more slots at a later date {like i did last time}, so please call the store to sign up if you are interested.

i have been kicking around the idea of offering a few altered book classes a year {maybe 3 or 4} – each one centered around a different holiday or season.  i think altered books are a really unique and fun thing to “decorate” with. and having done the Christmas book and now the Valentine’s book, i thought why not do some for the other major holidays? i think halloween would ESPECIALLY be fun! if you like this idea, please post a comment or drop me a note. these books take SO much time to design and even MORE time to prepare for {all the cutting and packing up the goodies} that i DON’T want to spend time designing more books if the interest is NOT there for them!

hope to hear from you! thanks… tami

NEW Reminisce valentine line… VALENTINE’S NIGHT!

REMINISCE has just released a brand new Valentine’s line, just in time for all your LOVE-ly Valentine projects! it’s called VALENTINE’S NIGHTS and it reminds me of black ties, red roses and champagne!

it’s very formal and just GORGEOUS! the colors are deep, rich, velvety red, pitch black and soft, buttery gold. Lots of sparkle too, foil papers and glittery papers with hearts, scrolls and a damask pattern. VERY grown up and sophisticated!

i did 2 projects using the new line, first is a trio of cards…

Reminisce included some fabulous embellies with this line – cute little love words to mix and match, beautiful foil cardstock stickers and strips. it made it easy to create these cards. i just added a little ribbon, trim and bling!

and then i did a “10 things i love about you” mini album as a special gift for my dh for valentine’s day…

again, the embellies made this project fun and easy to do, i added a few chipboard and foam letters, some bling and ribbons and trim.

please check out the REMINISCE BLOG in the next few weeks, i’m sure they will be featuring some great projects from the DT!
