Class Crazy

I have so many class ideas and not enough time to do them so I thought I would do a poll and see what classes you (my wonderful customers) would be most interested in.  I really need your help with this so please participate.  To make it a little more fun I’ve decided to add an incentive.  I just love our new Mini Catalog so I’m going to give you your choice of Stamp Set from the Mini Catalog for 1/2 price.

Here’s what you need to do.  Vote on your favorite Classes.  You can choose as many as you would like.  You can also add in one that you’d like to see.  Then vote on the best days for classes.  Once you have voted go to the comments section and add your name and e-mail address. 

I will keep this poll open until the end of September.  I will also keep it at the top of my blog so remember to scroll down for new posts.  I will draw a winner the first week of October.  You will be notified by e-mail as well as posted on my site.  Good luck and thanks for your help. 

You can see more information about each class underneath the poll.

Here is a description of what types of this will be included in the classes.  Actual projects and costs will be determined after I choose the classes.  I’ve included pictures if I had one.

My up-line Mindy Bywater made this for our 3D swap at Convention.  It’s a smaller version of the table top scrapbooks.

This cute little mini album is just 5″ x 5″.  It would make a really cute gift or is a fun album for little girls.  It’s really easy to make and I love that it’s sturdy enough to  stand up on a counter-top or you can fold it up and leave it flat.

Thrifty Thursday 1-15-09

Have you ever tried one of those books where all of the accents are made with one piece of paper.  Well I wanted to give it a try.  I searched for patterns, but didn’t really find one that worked for what I was doing so I just made up my own.  If I can find it I will try and post it for you.

mb-frontThis is a great book to use for gift items, for kids or for something you just want a quick small scrapbook of that you can keep around the house.  I created this book for my son DJ.  It’s of his baseball team last summer.  The nice thing about it is that it’s quick and easy to make so you could make one for each kid or if they are old enough they could make their own.

First you want to decided on a theme.  I obviously used baseball here so I chose the Just Baseball set #109459 $12.95.  I also used the sporting set $109246 $17.95.

Then I picked the colors I wanted to use.  You want to choose 3 to 4 colors that you will used for the entire book.  I used Real Red, Night of Navy and Whisper White as my basic colors.  Then I added Close to Cocoa and Sahara Sand as my accent colors.  I picked my colors to match his baseball team colors and the colors of the equipment.

Next you will need 1 piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper that you will be stamping on.  I used the Whisper White.  Then you just want to stamp your images on it randomly.  It doesn’t really matter where you stamp them because you are going to cut the paper all up.  I overlapped them a lot because I liked the look of it.

Once you have your paper stamped you will cut it up to the pattern.  Then you will need a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper of your accent color.  I have used the night of navy.  You would use the pattern to cut up this paper to go behind your stamped paper.

This book is a 6×6 and has 16 pages.  To save money I attached the pieces to both sides of the paper instead of using two different ones back to back.  It makes a total of 16 pages so you will need to sheets of 12 x 12 cut into 6×6 to give you 8 sheets.

mb-pg-7Once you have everything cut you can begin to assemble the book.  Here is just a sample of one of the pages.  You can click here to see the whole book.  I really will try to find the pattern and get it posted for you as well. 

I hope you try making one of these fun books for a loved one or letting your kids try one of there own. 

Some of the other great sets you could use to to create one of these books are: any of the sport ones, any flower sets, wild about you, bugs & kisses or just try it with your favorite set.

Stampin’ Sunday 1-4-09

wb-topAfter I finished making the little wish boxed designed by Kelly Gettelfinger the I showed you in my Marvelous Monday post on December 29th I realized I still had a lot of stuff left from my Simply Scrappin’ Kit.  So I decided so see what I could come up with.  I got the design for this from one of Patty’s posts.  So here is what I came up with.

I used the long ended envelopes to create my book.  First I sealled them the cut of the very edge to make a pocket.  Then I used my punch to punch a whole in each one to make it easy to pull out my cards. 

I covered both sides of each envelope with paper.  (I didn’t have enough paper left for these so I used some that I had, same thing with the pullouts.)  I used the crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the side that I tied my ribbon through.  I used the Aspen ribbon from the mini catalog. 

wb-openI think this is a great book because of all the pull outs.  It really allow you to put lots of pictures in it and it make a great gift.  I used my extra pieces from the “I wish” Simply Scrapin’ kit to decorate my book.

Remember that this great kit could be on the retired accesories list. (I won’t know for sure until tomorrow.)  So order yours today to make sure you get one.  Click here to start placing your on-line order.
