Autograph Photo Stand Class
Friday August 6th from 6-9pm
Roses are red, violets are blue... Did you ever have an autograph album? It was fun to have your friends sign their name and write a silly little poem! This isn't actually an autograph album (unless you want it be) but a lovely display with two albums to show off your favorite photos of the people, places, and even things that have made an imprint, "an autograph," on your life. The albums can be displayed on the stand for a while and then replaced with new pictures so that you can rotate the albums with the seasons or new themes. You could make an album about the people of your life and another about the places of your life. You could also make a beautiful display with the pictures of gardens and scenery taken through the years.
Using some of my favorite products from 7gypsies, Jenni Bowlin, Tim Holtz Ideology, and more, we'll make one album full of techniques making page layouts and pockets and another small album with little pockets and pages to tuck your photos and treasures into.
(This project can be made without the stand, if desired. If you do not purchase the stand, you will need to purchase a refill pack of the photo stand vertical page protectors by 7gypsies and two binding rings. The refill pack #10082 contains 10 page protectors. The photo stand comes with 15 page protectors and the binding rings.)

Sunny days, swimming holes, hours just to play, vacations near and far, country fairs, ice cream, picnics, outdoor concerts, and lots more adventures make summertime the best time of the year! In this sweet album full of pockets and fold outs and places for all your summer "stuff," you'll be able to record and remember the days that fly by so quickly. It's perfect boys or girls or even you!
Using fresh new products from October Afternoon, Jenni Bowlin, American Crafts, and more, we'll work our folding magic on the pages of this album so you can include all the photos and memorabilia that gives your album its own special personality.
(This is basically the Pennies From Heaven class techniques remodeled with new products for the stores on my schedule this summer.)

Saturday August 7th from 2pm-5pm
Imagine... one day you're cleaning out the attic and discover a dusty box of long forgotten treasures. Inside you find a sweet, small book full of stories and pictures of a girl with simple dreams and delightful tales. It's a little tattered and looks well-loved. Wouldn't that be an amazing find? Let's make that book together and fill it with YOUR stories and pictures. Who is that girl? Who has she become? Who does she hope to be? Of course, there are so many other things you can use this darling album for, too!
We'll take a canvas album from Pink Paislee and fill it with papers and embellishments from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop collection, American Crafts Dear Lizzy, Jenni Bowlin, 7gypsies, Tim Holtz Ideology, May Arts, and more. There will be lots of product for you to use your creativity to truly make this album your own. You'll leave class with a finished book ready for you to fill with your own treasures. (It would also make a perfect gift for a special girl to fill with her dreams and stories as she grows up.)
