I'm happy to report that there have been so many fun things going on in my life lately. Mostly to do with this hobby I love so much.....scrapbooking. It's funny and SO true that when you put yourself out-there and ask for what you want....it comes back full circle. I've said a lot in the past that I wanted more teaching opportunities. I love, love teaching scrapbooking, teaching techniques and most of all connecting with other like minded people who love this hobby as much as I do. As some of you already know from previous posts I've been enjoying working part-time at my LSS, "Scrapbooking Outside Of The Box." I've taught one class there in June and loved the experience. I have 2 more classes coming up this next month there. On September 6, 2007 I'll be teaching a "FALL layouts" class from 7-9 pm . Fall is my most favorite season----by far! I love the rich colors of the leaves, the crisp, yet tolerable air and all that comes along with this lovely season. During this class we will create 2 "Fall" themed layouts that include tons of layering, use of diamond glaze to create a neat 3D embellishment and lots of inking and my ever-favorite outlining of layers. I'll have a few give-aways and some yummy treats, of course! If you are in the area, there is space left and I would love to share this class wiht you :)
Update and pics on teaching at ScrapbookVacationClubs.
I am also extremely excited that my trip to teach a few Tinkering Ink classes at the luxury retreat in Daytona Beach, Florida at Scrapbook Vacation Clubs is just a month away! My flight is booked, most of my supplies are on the way, instructions are completed and I've been having fun shopping around for cute clothes to wear while there! This is something I've been looking forward to since I was asked a few months back. I can't wait to meet these ladies and have a fun, fab class. These classes are no open to the public, so if you are in the area sign up! I will teaching a mini chipboard book using Tinkering Ink's perfectly Posh line of papers. We will create an album that will be about "YOU" and your personal top 10. I have a few journaling techniques that I will instruct to get through that hurdle of writing. Which we all know can be a struggle. I will also teach my "Big and Bold" class using Tinkering Ink's Covenant garden line and Perfectly Posh line. The class I am most excited to teach there is using Tinkering Ink's timeless Nior Blanc line of papers. During this class we will create an actual coaster set. These coasters will be created with Modge Podge and are gorgeous and functional! We will also make 2 cards and a gift bag in case someone would like to give the set away for a present :) A 2 in 1 kind of thing :)---Gotta love that! Below, I'll post the photos of these 3 classes!
So............ that's the skinny of what I've been working on with my new classes. I'm working on a few other classes and even an online class I've been asked to design! I am just so thrilled and will share more with you as I can in the near future!
Enjoy your week! Off to do some laundry and hopefully some creating time!
