So our 3 legged little kitten has a new name, and she thinks she is taking over the house. She has been in the kids diaper bags, in their car seats, and playpen, and now she is in the Halloween treats. She is adorable and a lot of fun to watch her run around.
So we started our first scrapping night last week. We had 9 very fun and funny ladies of all ages. I think everyone had a great time even if the teacher goofed on the project directions:) Our first night we made little cookie gift boxes with peek a boo window in it. Each box had it's own little personality, just like the ladies.
Monday evening, I had only one attend and I had planned a 15 photo/journaling page layout. Of course if you know me, I ended up altering the layout. If you notice, some of you may say, "that's the page she made last week!" and you would be correct. I didn't quite like the page and still had a few pictures that went with it and didn't want to do a two page layout, and thanks to one of my online yahoo classes and instructor, she showed us how to make a page that could hold up to 15 photos. So you can see how I did mine.The red card stock is adhered to the 12x12 and there are photos on the front and inside of this piece of cardstock. If I had followed the original layout, there would be 9 3x5 photos or journaling on the 12x12, 3 3x5's on the front and inside page, totaling 15 photo layout, now how cool is that?
Penny worked on her cruise photos...she just returned from the Bahamas!!!! We used the Cricut to create a title, which was the name of the boat they were on the SENSATION. Her page came out really cute. I think she was very pleased.
On Tuesday, again I only had one guest for the evening and we made a Card Secretary. I made a slight mistake forgetting to tell her to get double sided cardstock, but it came out really cute. We had a fun evening of laughing and chatting. Of course we didn't get the project finished so next week we will be making the 6 cards, and tags to go on the inside of the Secretary and label her address book and stamp holder. I think Toni did a really nice job.
So if you are interested in coming to either classes, Monday's are page layouts and Tuesdays are more of a crafty, cardmaking, class, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not send me forwards to that acct though as I have gotten a virus from a forward and lost my whole computer.
