Sneak Peek 3- Library Tray with 4 Mini Albums

Oh what fun this project is! 4 different mini albums in a fantastic 7 Gypsies library tray!

This album is full of hand folded vellum pockets and some great embellished insert cards. This album is all made from scratch- such a cool technique!

This one is an album made of shipping tags, altered, covered, embellished, embossed, inked and into fun little pieces of art.

Album number 3 is an accordion album of pockets made from one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock! The covers are cool embossed metal that I used alcohol ink, paint and sandpaper to distress. This one is messy but fun!

Album 4 is a custom created canvas cover with stencils and ink. The book is all handmade and hand bound and then the pages are bound with stab stitches (that sounds so gruesome doesn't it?) and then we will finish this off with some fun embellishments.

This class will be Saturday October 19th, 9 am- Noon. To sign up for this fun Workshop Weekend visit our Fall Workshop Page.

More Sneak Previews for October Workshop Weekend

Here is the 16x20 Frame project made with a different collection, the Simple Stories Urban Traveler.

I also used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to color the canvas.

I made some custom die cuts for this version, a luggage tag photo frame and a suitcase.

I love the way this turned out. Sorry the photos are a bit wonky. To register for this event visit the Workshop Page on our website.
Happy Scrapping!

Here is a brief description of what is coming for our Fall Workshop Projects:
6x12 Family Book featuring Collecting Moments by Fancy Pants. I loved the combination of navy, coral, green and blue plus so many wonderful embellishments to use in a mini book that is not so mini. The idea with a 6x12 format is that you can use full size 4x6 photos to complete a wonderful keepsake or gift album.

16x20 Hanging Memory Frame featuring Say Cheese or Urban Traveler 
This fun project will incorporate so many fun techniques and embellishments in a perfect display piece for your wall. We will be layering chipboard, paper, ribbon, die cuts, and more on hanging tags attached with clothespins. This project would be a great gift- but you won't want to give it away! You get to choose which collection is the right fit for your project- or you can do both!

7 Gypsies Mini Library Drawer- This smaller size (12" x 4") library drawer is perfect for all of those fun Instagram photos we have all been taking. We will be making 4 different mini books to live in our drawer- each a different binding technique. So many fun techniques with this project, get ready for a jam packed art discovery session.

Photo Freedom Layouts-Adrienne has been teaching me how to do this fun method that is part Project Life, part traditional 12 x 12 Scrapbooking. She will be teaching a class to show you how fun and fast this method is and how to incorporate it with your current scrapbooking. There will be paper choices for this class, I just don't know what they are going to be yet.
Elle's Studio Class- I don't know what kind of project Elle will be teaching for us. I am sure it is going to be fabulous, I will provide more details and photos as soon as I have them.
