Flappy Scrappy Scrapbook

Ok, What is a Flappy Scrappy Scrapbook?
Well it sorta explaines itself, after you untie the ribbon on the cover, this book opens in both directions and has many flaps of cardstock that cover 3 different  openings.  This gives you mutiple spots to scrapbook a special event, my book was made for a special couple (my upline) Deena and Jeremy for a Wedding gift.  I got the idea for my book from a friend I met at Founders circle Sarah Wills, she has wonderful tutorials on her blog.

This is a picture of my book with 2 flaps open,

and now 2 more flaps open, with 3 more ready to be opened and scrapbooked for your special book.  Don't you think this would make a special gift for a family member or friend.

I will have a Flappy Scrappy Scrapbook class on December 5th at 1pm
cost $15.00
I used Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper for this book, but I bet you can think of a few different possibilities yourself, I'm thinking in the direction of Cottage Wall right now.

Thanks for looking Cindy

Spotlighting in November


   November cards we will use Spotlighting and Gradiant Glow techniques.  You have the choice of  spotlighting one or two features on the card as well as a choice of  which direction you will stamp your card.
I know these are not traditional Christmas colors but they are very peaceful, and yes I chose the stamp sets Lovely as a Tree (again) and Wandering Words, Santa had to fly over something so why not these Lovely Sparkling Trees.

Autumn Splendor

My second spotlighting card uses the Autumn Splendor stamp set.  This set is great for spotlighting, we can stamp a plain background and highlight a portion of the leaf to remember how beautiful and brilliant  the colors of the leaves were just a couple of weeks ago.

Now for those of us that like projects-

This is my Santa treat bag, that we will be doing at technique class this month.  I purchased this class from a fellow demo Gretchen Barron, don't you just love him?  Well  he has 4 side kick friends and I am having a class on December 1st to introduce you to them. Santas friends include a reindeer, elf, snowman and of course the lovely Mrs Santa. This class is $15.00  and you will make all 5 treat bags.
