Hi there! I had a lot of fun last night with the Scrapbook Club gals although felt a little funny being in my studio with them after the holiday break. I think I have my mojo back now and have added two Big Shot workshops in early January before my trip to the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in San Antonio. We will create cute Valentine's Day projects with some brand-new Big Shot products from the Occasions Mini Catalog. To view my class/workshop schedule, select the "Schedule" tab on the right of this page or click HERE. You can also RSVP for the classes there.
Back to the Scrapbook Club workshop, we created these cute mini scrapbook and matching holder. The base of this mini scrapbook was created using three die-cuts of the Petite Pocket die. You can get three pieces out of one 8 1/2" x 11" card stock if you don't need the flap part of the die. For this project, you don't need the flap. To layer three pockets like this, we cut one pocket 1/2" off and 1" off another. We also used the 2 1/2" Circle Punch to create a new notch in the front of the pocket. We used the Crop-A-Dile to stack these pockets and tied a knot to secure. We also used the Sticky Strip in between each pocket to enforce the scrapbook. When making this, make sure to decorate your smallest pocket before assembling it. I felt really bad when I saw three gals decorated their biggest pocket. Apparently I told them to stamp on the largest one...Sorry! Their scrapbooks looked nicer than mine with both front and back pockets embellished!!! Don't we always find the way to fix oops? Shhhh...nobody will know!
I will be back tomorrow to share the matching holder with you. There are some cool techniques I'd like to show you. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
