Altered Valentines Book w/Paper Doll

This week I finished the altered book I'll be teaching at Scrapbook Island on February 7th in the afternoon. I'm actually teaching two classes that day. I'll be at Scrap Lovers at A Work of Heart in the a.m. and at Scrapbook Island in the p.m.. We're going to cut a niche in this book to house a paper doll with a Valentine dress. I couldn't wait to get these Character Construction stamps for this project and I made the book as soon as they came in the mail. Here are pics of the opposing page and cover too.

I'll be posting some peeks of upcoming classes that I'll be displaying this weekend at the CHA so check back!

Valentines Day Class Feb. 7th @ Scraplovers

Here the Valentines Day project I'll be teaching on February 7th at Scrap Lovers at A Work of Heart. With the exception of the straight pins I had everything on hand to make this today. The fabric is the cuff to an old shirt I've had for years but never wore. The flowers and czech buttons are flea market finds. The book cover was torn off an old book that was also a flea purchase. I offered so little for this book and a few others that the man told me ok but that he wouldn't have money to buy shoes for his kids! I hated to tear the cover off but the book was truly rotten. Here's a close up.

"Adorable" Class

I realized today that I hadn't posted a picture of one of my classes, Adorable, that's coming up next Saturday. I love the softness of this mini album. It will be a fun class.

I hope you had a great New Years Day!

Happy New Year!

What a great night! We pulled out old video footage of the kids after their births up until now. It was so fun to go back a little in time. Tomorrow I've committed to NOTHING but staying in my bed and pouring over the $80 worth of Somersets I bought today.

Have a happy New Years Day tomorrow!
