Bits & Pieces Class Sneak Peek

At last, the planning phase is done.

Now into the crafty, messy, creative, business-woman phase.I am so excited. I really think this is going to be an awesome experience.

Beginning next month I am going to have an online workshop called "Bits & Pieces" available for purchase. The focus will be on creating a mini-book about all those little bits of life around you that you feel are worth recognizing and appreciating.

Right now I am putting kits together, building the class site, creating content, getting things weighed for shipping estimates, etc. etc.

The class is going to run for 2-3 weeks starting on September 28th.
(Still working out a few of the details.)

The pace of the workshop will be very relaxed. Participants will be able to work at their own pace. And after the "live" part of the class is over, participants will have access to the private blog for at least one year.

In this class, there will be journaling prompts, technique tutorials, photography tips, links to really cool online resources, plus some class-exclusive digital content designed by me.

Workshop participants will have access to a private blog, a private Flickr group for sharing photos and a PDF of all lessons covered in the class. Plus, quality time with me. ;)

And did I mention there would be giveaways?

But I must say that my favorite part of this whole process is the kit. For a mini-book, of course. And quite a large one, when all is said and done.

The kit will include:

1 exclusive handmade fabric and chipboard album with silver bookrings and silver grommets
12 sheets heavyweight double sided patterned paper (6x6)
1 sheet single sided woodgrain pattern paper (6x6)
6 sheets cardstock (6x6)
4 clear acrylic pages (4.25x6)
7 Vintage book pages (various sizes):
- three sheets from vintage French dictionary
- two sheets from vintage math book
- two sheets from vintage Latin dictionary
- two sheets from antique illustrated dictionary
2 sheets of graph paper
2 sheets of wide ruled notebook paper
1 sheet of woodgrain contact paper
Handmade embellishments and ephemera including:
- 12 hand-stamped labels
- 5 handmade chipboard buttons
- 2 playing cards (white/black)
- Assortment of vintage buttons
- Assortment of punched embellishents, including tabs, tags and journaling spots.
- Lengths of coordinating ribbon and lace

And.... 1 Exclusive rubber stamp designed just for this class.

Additionally, when the kit is put up for sale, my etsy shop will also be stocked with optional add-ons, including alphabets, additional custom-designed rubber stamps and a few surprise goodies. (And of course I will combine shipping on any order.)

In addition to busily hammering away at grommets, I am also working on a Q&A. Please comment on this post or email me with any questions.
