A Scrapbook Challenge Answered!

I work with my local scrapbook store a little bit and teach classes from time to time.  Diane, the owner of Scrapbook Central here in Courtenay BC handed me a plastic pouch put together by Maya Road, filled with all sorts of goodies and asked me to make up a class.  Well that was a challenge I could not refuse!

The packet included a Maya Road ring chipboard album (10 - 5x5 pages), kraft envelopes, lace, ribbon and lots of other trims, charms, clips, letter stickers, wood buttons and cutouts, and more.  The suggested album in the packet was nice, but I am not really a fan of the ring album.  After spending time playing with a few ideas I decided to use the new accordion binding by Kathy Orta.

This is a chunky book with plenty of space for pictures and all the lovely decorated pages.  There were three top loading envelopes and three that opened on the side.  I attached these envelopes with paper hinges to the bottom or side of a chipboard page.  I cut off the top of the vertical envelopes to make room for a tag insert.

I think this will be a fun class!  Come check out Scrapbook Central's website (or call 250-338-8815) and sign up today!

Date: September 13th
Time: 12:30 - 4 pm
Cost: $40.00 (not bad for a finished album and left-over goodies to take home)

See you in class!
