NEW!!! Thursday October 14th 6:30-8:30 pm
Memories of lazy days spent relaxing at the beach are featured on this two page 12x12” layout that incorporates two mini books on the interactive pages so you can include all your favorite photos and tell the stories you want to remember for years to come.
The fabulous new Seaside Collection from October Afternoon (one of my favorite companies) will be perfect for your beach vacation pictures.
Student supply list: 12” paper trimmer, dry tape runner adhesive, ruler, scissors, Crop A Dile, Foam Squares, Fiskars border punch (I used the threading water punch)
Imagine... one day you're cleaning out the attic and discover a dusty box of long forgotten treasures. Inside you find a sweet, small book full of stories and pictures of a girl with simple dreams and delightful tales. It's a little tattered and looks well-loved. Wouldn't that be an amazing find? Let's make that book together and fill it with YOUR stories and pictures. Who is that girl? Who has she become? Who does she hope to be? Of course, there are so many other things you can use this darling album for, too!
We'll take a canvas album from Pink Paislee and fill it with papers and embellishments from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop collection, American Crafts Dear Lizzy, Jenni Bowlin, 7gypsies, Tim Holtz Ideology, May Arts, and more. There will be lots of product for you to use your creativity to truly make this album your own. You'll leave class with a finished book ready for you to fill with your own treasures. (It would also make a perfect gift for a special girl to fill with her dreams and stories as she grows up.)
Student supply list:
12" paper trimmer, scissors, pencil, tape runner adhesive, liquid adhesive (ex. Zip Dry) or strong tape (red line or Scor-Pal tape,) Crop A Dile punch, Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Ink Blending Tool, Non-Stick Craft Mat, sanding block, paper edge distresser, stapler (Tiny Attacher), glue dots, scoring tool, Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
Roses are red, violets are blue... Did you ever have an autograph album? It was fun to have your friends sign their name and write a silly little poem! This isn't actually an autograph album (unless you want it be) but a lovely display with two albums to show off your favorite photos of the people, places, and even things that have made an imprint, "an autograph," on your life. The albums can be displayed on the stand for a while and then replaced with new pictures so that you can rotate the albums with the seasons or new themes. You could make an album about the people of your life and another about the places of your life. You could also make a beautiful display with the pictures of gardens and scenery taken through the years.
Using some of my favorite products from 7gypsies, Jenni Bowlin, Tim Holtz Ideology, and more, we'll make one album full of techniques making page layouts and pockets and another small album with little pockets and pages to tuck your photos and treasures into.
(This project can be made without the stand, if desired. If you do not purchase the stand, you will need to purchase a refill pack of the photo stand vertical page protectors by 7gypsies and two binding rings. The refill pack #10082 contains 10 page protectors. The photo stand comes with 15 page protectors and the binding rings
Student supply list:
12" paper trimmer, scissors, pencil, tape runner adhesive, 7gypsies Binderie, Crop A Dile punch, Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Ink Blending Tool, Non-Stick Craft Mat, sanding block, paper edge distresser, stapler (Tiny Attacher), glue dots, foam squares, scallop edge scissors, decorative border punch (I used a lacy Martha Stewart punch).

Christmas Album- repeat
Collect the stories, photos, cards, and other memories of the holiday season in this 8 1/2" x 11" binder album that we'll transform with paint and inks to make it a little bit shabby and very chic. The new Everybody Loves Christmas collection from Echo Park Paper Co. is perfect for making the layouts and pockets and journaling mini books that will fill the inside of the album and adorn the cover. A variety of page protectors and textures and techniques will inspire ideas for future projects. We'll also be using products from American Crafts, May Arts, Bazzill Basics, and Jenni Bowlin to complete a project that will be a treasure for you and your family or to give as a gift to someone special.
