Scrapbook classes

Here is my version of Tim’s tag for July.  Just about exactly like his, only I was out of star charms so I found one in my stash from Vintaj Brass.

July TH tag

And here is some news for those who haven’t heard yet.  I’m working at Peddler’s Pack in Beaverton, OR.  I didn’t go in there looking for a job.  I WAS enjoying being retired. But when Joyce offered me a position, I thought it would be fun to be teaching classes again. And I miss being with like-minded paper crafters. So if you’re ever up my way, stop by and say, “Hi.”  I work Monday, Wednesday and Saturday for now. And I’ll be teaching this tag in a class August 3rd.

I just finished up Ali Edwards’ TYPE class. I so enjoyed her inspiration and teaching. Here was my Type as Art layout:

Type as artThe Type “Art” was the gigantic Copic colored pumpkin. I added Fall words to the pumpkin sections. Of course the best part of this layout is the photos of Eva.

I hope you are all finding time to take some classes and to tell your stories.

If you are like me and have a lot of alphabets in chipboard and sticker form or stamps or even rub-ons then you would enjoy the Ali Edwards class I have been taking.  Taking classes, for me, really gets me scrapbooking again and telling some of those longer stories.

I think the registration for the class is closed at this point (we are in week 7) but I know she plans to offer it again. Another class she is offering is Hello Story.  This one is totally self-paced and man did I love it when I took it a couple years back through Big Picture Classes.

Here is the latest layout I made for TYPE:

type week 7 fruit loopAs you can see, it is all about the photos and the story. Simple, classic, love it!

Here is a fun layout of my precious granddaughter, Eva Joy, at 5 months:

So fun to do using all those different alphabets. Love the way some of them go off the page. It was kind of like putting together a jig-saw puzzle. Not as easy as it looks, perhaps. But I like how it came out.

You may notice that the above layout is 8.5 x 11. One of the things I am doing this year is mixing up my layout sizes in one album.  I’m really liking how this looks and frees me up to be more creative. In addition to 12 x 12 and 8.5 x 11 I’ve also got some 6 x 12. These are great for adding a few extra photos and a little more story.

Here’s to classes and more layouts and telling our stories!
