Big Shot/3D Project Class/Club - Wed, August 29

Here are the projects we'll be making this week at the 3D Project/Big Shot Class on Wednesday, August 29 at 7pm!  I'd love for you to join us!!  Just email me at or call (989) 330-0259 to RSVP today!!  You bring scissors and adhesive - I provide everything else!!  It's such a great way to spend an hour or two - and you end up with some fun projects you can duplicate at home and give as gifts to your friends and family :)

This first project is an assortment of Composition Journals that I covered with some of my favorite Designer Series Papers....  I thought these would be a great gift to the kids as they go back to school!  You'll choose the Designer Series Paper you like and cover your own journal (provided).  Then "pretty it up" with some ribbon and embellishments - what fun!!  After seeing these, my kids have both put their requests in for their journals!

This first journal features the World Spectacular Designer Series Paper, some Island Indigo 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon and the Blue Ribbon Stamp set.

On to our second project for class on Wednesday...  This is one of those projects I've been wanting to do for soooo long now...  I've decided I want to stop THINKING about all the projects I want to do AND JUST DO THEM!  I love that I have classes that I can design these projects for, as well as use them for my own purposes!  In this case, I've been wanting a better way to carry pictures in my purse than those flimsy, clear, flippy photo holders - they take up too much room in my wallet and frankly, I'd need a few of them to put the pictures in anyway...  So, I decided to create my own....

Here's the idea... (that I got from one of our Make-n-Take projects at Convention!).  I started with an outside layer of the new Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It's very sturdy and will hold up well in my purse!  I punched two tiny flowers (one for the front, one for the back) with the Itty Bitty Shapes Flower Punch and adhered them each with a Mini Brad. 

Then I tied some Linen Thread around each of the Mini Brads to keep the album closed - untwist, and the album is opened.....

There are 4 sheets of Very Vanilla paper on the inside, scored in the middle and also held together with Linen Thread - enough pages to hold 15 photos!  I put a caption on the first page of the album (with the Notable Alphabet stamp set) to indicate what was to come next in the album....  In this case, pictures of my kids through the years.  I also made separate albums for Lilly's dance and soccer pictures and Cade's football, soccer and baseball pictures.  I even made albums for the kids' school pictures each year.  Now I finally feel like I'm putting all those pictures we've ordered through the years to good use!!  And, when someone asks, do you have pictures of your kids??  I'll be more than ready!!
