Scrappy Thursday Class Project

Wow - I'm thrilled that so many of you are excited about my Scrappy Thursday Class project, Spring Garden Mini Album.

I've received tons of requests to make this class available for purchase via mail.  I apologize that I have not responded to each of you individually (due to my hectic schedule this week, including pulling an all-nighter to get my taxes done.  Plus my printer broke down just as I was printing my final return...of all of the times to break down.  So with literally minutes to spare, I made it to the Post Office to get/send an extension to file form...they only had one form left!  Then off to the city to purchase a new printer and set it up so that I can actually get some work done.) 

OK - I know that was more than you wanted to know.  Just know, I'm working on the details to make this project available to you to purchase as soon as possible.

Thank you SO much!

A Couple More Mpls Regional Envelope Scrapbooks

I know you've been patiently waiting for more of my Envelope Scrapbook samples from the Minneapolis Regionals.  It's tax time for me - so this week is crazy (to say the least)!

Here's a couple samples for now.  I'll post the rest next week.

Both

Both scrapbooks feature Stampin' Up!'s 3x3 Love Note Envelopes and Spring Garden Simply Scrappin' Kit.  You'll also notice that I assembled one in portrait mode and the other landscape.

This next one is a "step-it-up" version.

Stampin' Up! Minneapolis Regional Seminar: Workshop Wow, Envelope Scrapbook

I was so excited when Stampin' Up! contacted me to do a Workshop Wow at the Minneapolis Regional this past weekend.  They called two days before I left for the Stampin' Up! Hawaii Incentive Trip.  I knew I wouldn't have much time to prepare - but I said YES!  Couldn't help myself!

It was so much fun!  I demonstrated an Envelope Scrapbook.  I did this project with my scrapbook clubs last December.  They really liked it, so I decided to make up some samples using current product. 

It's VERY simple!  All you need is 3 envelopes.  Adhere them together using the flaps.  That's it!  Well, of course you'll want to decorate it.

The scrapbook I designed is for my husband for Father's Day.  I married Gene when my girls were 6 & 8.  So he missed the baby years (diapers, terrible twos, etc).  We now have a grandson, Max (another grandbaby is on it's way - May 26th!).  Max is the light of our lives!  So now Gene gets to do all of the baby stuff. 

Last fall we took Max to a local Apple Orchard and Petting Zoo.  I took over the camera duties (Gene is usually the photographer for our family).  You'll see why when you see my pictures.  So here's my album with Max and Grandpa!

Look at that cute little butt!  Hmm...not much of Gene showing?

Look at that cute little face!  Hmm...only got Gene's hand?

Hmm...Still not much of Gene in the picture?  Guess there's a reason that Gene is the family photographer!

I have a few more envelope scrapbook samples to share.  So stop on by again!

Supplies:  Sweet Serendipity & Trendy Trees stamp sets, Kraft Medium Envelopes, Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper, Basic Black & Kraft Cardstock, Basic Black & Close to Cocoa Classic Ink, Wide Oval Punch, Jumbo and Mini Library Clips

Enjoy~Dawn Olchefske
