I'm really looking forward to teaching three classes in Atlanta this weekend -- I'll be at Matte Magic in Newnan on Saturday, to help celebrate their 3rd Anniversary! I'll be debuting a couple of new classes that I'm really excited about -- actually all three should be pretty awesome! ;) [Pssst! I *think* there might be a few spots left -- be sure to call Rose to check it out! I guarantee you'll have a BLAST!]
Gotcha!: Capturing Personality on Paper
I've taught this class several times before, and it's usually a sell-out. I guess I wrote a good description! But once I've "lured" people in to the class, I make sure to give them plenty of content, and fun stuff to think about. I try to share fresh ideas for documenting quirks, passions, favorites, and personal pizzazz. We play with tags, envelopes,
fibers, inking, tearing, and other fun stuff, while discussing how best to preserve the personality on paper. In this class, we do a layout titled "Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful", and another one based on VH-1's "Pop-Up Video" series!
A Little Book of Me Paper Bag Album
This is one of my new classes, and it's going to be sooooo fun! Paper bag albums are so hot right now, and when paired with fun Aunt Gertie's Garden paper from SEI -- it's too cute! This class is actually a variation on one I developed when I first started teaching Book of Me classes -- "10 Fast & Fabulous Layouts about YOU". Since I developed it a couple of years ago, products and techniques have changed so much, my class samples & projects are a little out of date. So I combined all 10 layout topics into one paper bag album! So cute! Plus, it's easily adaptable into a small 6x6 album, if someone perferred not to go the paper bag route, for whatever reason.
10 Memories of US
This is my second debut class, based on an outline I designed for my Book of Us class CD. (Did you know I have created class CDs for each of my books??) This is a little K&Co accordion album, featuring Basic Grey paper, and lots of fun nooks and crannys for hidden journaling. It's perfect for documenting little snippets of shared memories about friendship, family, love, groups and communities. Lots of neat hidden journaling techniques in this CUTE project! And how can you pass up Basic Grey paper??
My next travel gig is to Houston the weekend of June 17-18th:
June 17: Scrapbook Village
June 18, 2005: Lone Star Scrapbook Company
EDITED TO ADD: After that, I'm sticking around home for a bit, and teaching a class two different times at Scrapbooker's Dream-Independence! (Yay for the home team!) Call 816-795-5450 for space availability!
I hope to meet some of you while I'm in Atlanta this weekend, or in
Houston in June, or in KC this summer -- be sure to introduce yourself! I'm really very
friendly and approachable! ;)
