I'm super excited about a new class that I designed over the weekend when I received the hot off the press samples! I've had this class in mind ever since I saw the October Afternoon Public Library collection last year. As a lover of libraries and books and stories, I knew I had to do make a special project with it!
I used a new Heidi Swapp 8" x 6" album with the new Crate Paper Open Road collection - which I love but didn't want to do another travel-themed album right now, so incorporated several of their papers, stickers, and stitched borders into the Public Library book.
I was also inspired by a little can of converation starter cards that I purchased while in Fredericksburg, Texas, last October. (I'm waiting to get information on where to purchase these, so the stores where I'm teaching could have them in stock.)
I had so much fun working (playing!) in this new album - I love the horizontal orientation and the different divided page protectors.
A more detailed description of the class can be found on my Upcoming Classes blog HERE. This class will debut in Illinois at The Scrapbooking Studio in Moline and near Chicago at CraftFancy in June and then continue through the summer and fall here in Buffalo, in Oklahoma City, in St. Petersburg, FL, near San Jose in Cupertino, and in Waxahatchie, Texas near Dallas. I'm waiting to finalize other dates where this class will be - if you'd like it to be at a store near you, you can have the owner contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can see what we can do! If you don't live near one of these stores, you can always come and have a weekend away with me or you can purchase a kit from a store and have it shipped to you after the class is taught at the store. Thank you for all your excitement about this class and your support!
Of course, as soon as I went downstairs to take a picture of the cards, Mr. Kitty appeared from wherever he was sleeping to get in on the picture...
Yes, that's a vase in the chair - I realized after I uploaded the photo that I hadn't put it back on the mantle after photographing the new class yesterday! LOL
Hope to see you in class somewhere - we have some STORIES to tell! :)
