As I mentioned before, I'm currently completely immersed in prep for my 10 Reasons to Love Summer class. This week it's all about putting kits together and working on the website. So. much. left. to. do. Ahem.
This has definitely been a useful exercise that I'm applying to other projects being worked on. But you can see a bit how some of the ideas translated into the actual work.
Here's a bit of a preview of some class content that was inspired by the smashbook ideas:
I also wanted to take the opportunity to share a few more photos of the finished book details:
Please note that you can still sign up for a spot at the Tukwila class for this Saturday 08/13 or the University Village class on 08/27. Please call the store directly to sign up. It's going to be super fun.
If you are attending live and in person, we're going to be making the book without photos, so please don't worry about that. The companion journaling prompt workbook you'll receive (and it's five pages long, btw) is intended to help you select your photos for the book AFTER you've made it. :)
However, if you are attending and you don't like to share tools, I'd recommend you bring your own adhesive, scissors, and hole punch. Other than that, I've pretty much got ya covered.
And seriously, if you can get over here, for a class, you totally should. I mean, look how much fun we had at the Bellevue store last weekend? My students got so much done and I am SO proud of them!
Thank you so much ladies! You inspired ME. :)
And for my non-local peeps, I promise that there will be some kits going in the Etsy on 08/15. A companion blog with the instructions, journaling prompts, sketches, and more will also be made available, as soon as I can get all of the hundreds of photos edited and coded. Oy.
And now, for reading this far down the post, I think you get a treat!
I'm going to give away either an unfinished kit or a finished class sample book (your choice) to one of my lucky readers! Please leave a comment on this post to tell me what your favorite summer treat is and I'll randomly pick a winner by EOD Saturday 08/13.
Thanks for reading and hope you are having a happy summer!
