Class Project peeks

***Tomorrow morning I draw for the giveaway.. you still have time to get your name in HERE)

Thought I'd share some peeks at Classes for next month in Albion. Scrapbook Paradise's "Big Birthday Bash" ( you can find more info in yesterdays post)
This is a Simple album .. but 12 pages and the cover that we'll do in ONE HOUR. You heard me right.. one hour. woo hoo... we'll be clipping right along.

Well be doing simple pages incorporating stamps and small embellishments. Here are just some quick peeks at some random pages.
( This is mom and my brothers and sisters last summer)

My niece Amy and her fam.

My niece Rhonda and her fam.

My sis and brother-in-law

* There are still a few opening in this class. The other 5 classes Jan and I are teaching are filled.
If your interested you can call Scrapbook Paradise.
I just have to tell you how much I love being able to custom color my flowers for specific project , using Glimmer Mist. I knew I was going to have a hard time finding flowers to match this album.. so again, I just bought plain white flowers, laid them all out and sprayed them with (in this case.. COPPER) Glimmer Mist.... and the match was perfect.
I also went over all the leaves with "Iridescent Gold" to give them some "glimmer" also.
After they were dry, I popped the inside out and added a decorative brad.
I have had about 20 paint cans boxed up taking up space for some time now.. so I decided this card class was going to be "Cards in a Can"...

They will be able to use the can for holding cards as they get them... OR use it to give away some baked goodies , during the holiday season.
All papers and Images are Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.I think I showed the cards that we will make , in a previous post..but here's a photo of them all together.

I have to share the goodies I got in the mail the other day from ..sweet reader and friend .. Bev
How gorgeous are these!!!

Great projects, and I know the gals in Albion will love it. Hope your dinner is great, and I know that you love having your boys around the kitchen table. Have a great evening.

Hello Vicki,
Haven't dropped in lately and just had to see what you were up too! Have to tell you I stopped in Gretna in September on my way to Iowa. Quick stop at Precious Tresures, Wow does she have a lot of product in her store. My boys and DH were waiting for me outside so it was a quick trip through. I found a couple things I couldn't do without though. You would think living near Dallas we would have more Scrapbook Stores. I won an ATC from your friend Catherine and have hung it up for inspiration. Looks like your busy as always. Take care

Bev said...

Thanks so much girl! I'm glad you liked your surprise. And like you said...I, too, have met so many nice people thru blogging. Thanks for being a cyber friend!


MJ said...

You and that Glimmer Mist! I've been thwarted finding a local retailer for it and you keep teasing me by showing how lovely it is!!

Great projects! (Hope Griff feels better too!)

Country Liv . . . said...

Hey Vic. Love the projects you are gonna 'teach.' Sooo pretty. Hope all is well with you and you enjoyed your dinner with Jarad.
I have to tell you that I impressed the heck out of a friend of mine the other day. We were in Michael's and I was scanning the mags when I came across projects done by my friend . . . Vicki Chrisman! She bout dropped her jaw on the floor! Hard for me to believe too!
Stay Sweet,
