My class for tonight and a new tag from Melita :)

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great week. I just wanted to pop in really quick to share a peak of a fun little album I will be teaching at Scrapbooking Outside The Box tonight. I used Hambly's new vintage patchwork to create a 6x6 album, along with some adorable and colorful Doodlebug stickers. I used ribbon for tabs to turn the pages and inked the edges of the transparency with Staz-on ink. I love how it actually stays...Imagine that..ha!lol. So, I'm pretty excited to teach this class tonight. I have a full class which is always awesome and my mom and sister will even be there. They took my very first scrapbook class way back when, but haven't been to any new ones, so I'm glad they will be joining us! I always like to bring some sort of treat for everyone to each class and it usually is a cupcake, but I
am brainstorming for something different to bring, maybe something less messy. Steve suggested caramel corn in a cute to-go oriental food box and I like the idea, but not sure yet. Any ideas?!

Ugh, I had such a hard time sleeping last night. I have a zillion things running through my mind to get ready to head down to teach at the Scrapbook Vacation Clubs in Florida. Overall, I think I am just excited.
Last week I shipped a 40 lb box of class kits to the owner of the retreat, Dionne. I hope she has help loading it. I had to bring Steve to the PO to help me. Dang, that thing was heavy. But, it felt great to have all of the classes in kits and directions ready......all set for some fun classes. So, now I am in the works of trying to figure out what scrap supplies I want to bring. At this retreat, they have 66 hours of cropping time available, along with the workshops. I've never been to a big crop before, so I'm really excited. It has been suggested to bring *kits* with everything to make pages to save on space and I think that's a great idea. Just trying to decide what I'm going to do will be the hard part. Any tips for packing for crops would be greatly appreciated!

I've been tagged by Melita to list 7 random facts about me. Hmm..... okay here it goes ;)
1. I cannot stand radio commercials or TV commercials. Especially car or truck dealer ones.
2. Sugar Free Red Bull gets me through the hours of 3:00-5:00 pm. I get sooo tired about then.
3. I love listening to hip hop when driving in the car, but sometimes get embarrassed when I realize my stereo is "bumping" down the road and my head is bopping too..haha!
4. I am extremely clumsy and frequently fall down the stairs at my house.
5. I don't like the feeling of sand between my toes or anywhere else ;)
6. I love, love performing on stage and the high/rush I get. I miss that!
7. I listen to "Kidd Kraddick In The Morning" everyday and laugh out loud as I am driving to work. It's a great way to start the day. {It's a radio show that is so funny, but stupid at the same time...love it}

Well, off to Staples to print instructions for tonight's class! Have a great day :)

pascalep said...

Yes .... this mini colorful album is cute ;o)) Much energy from it ! Bizzz, Pascale

Melita said...

Hey Tessa! I LOVE that mini book - throw it in your carry-on so I can see it IRL! :) I'm so excited about you coming to SVC, I can hardly stand it! Dionne did get your 40lb box - LOL!

For the kits, I usually put in photos and matched paper. If there is a sketch, particular embellishment or journaling, stuff that in the bag too. I usually use 2gallon Ziplock bags. Don't worry about cardstock. I'll have my stash and we will have several vendors there. We will have a journaling station and printing station in case you need them. Oh, don't forget your camera! See you soon!

Amber Risher said...

Oh I am so jealous of those who get to take a class with you! I love the little mini and enjoyed reading some little facts about you! Knock 'em dead at the class and have a good weekend!

TESSA--- Love your class samples - Fab-O Girl!!

BTW your box is here in Florida!!! I put it in my husbands office - too heavy to lug up to my Scrap-Studio. I got the old hubby eye roll when he asked "Who's Tessa?" ---- Well gee does he not keep up with Scrap-Celebs???? Good Grief!!

We are all soooo excited to see you - it won't be long now!!

Hugs for now, have a safe trip to FL!!
