Scrapbook in a Day

8 hours plus 17 ladies plus twenty pages equals ? Scrapbook in a Day! On Saturday and Tuesday Anthologies featured two scrapbook-in-a-day classes which I team-taught to a total of 17 women. They made this fantastic Prima 6x6 scrapbook with a total of five double-sided canvas pages and five double-sided paper layouts in page protectors. It was a super fun class filled with lots of techniques including sewing, glimmer misting, masking, painting, stamping and more. Each of the five store designer/teachers designed four pages which were then assembled together into this darling "You = Joy" book.

Here's the cover - love these fun colors!

And a peek at the open, assembled book (that's one of my pages on top).
Another view of the front of one of my canvas pages. The patchwork border includes both fabric and paper pieces. I especially love the wire heart.

Backside of the above page - before a few button and doodling embellishments were added. Forgot to take a picture of the finished page.

My second canvas page. I love making those paper flowers with twisted stems. Also love how the canvas takes the paints so well.


Another canvas page. Again, I forgot to take a photo of the completed page, but this had half of a huge red flower added to the upper right and a deep pink/red crushed velvet ribbon placed horizontally along the bottom.

Love how this book turned out, especially since it was a collaborative effort. You never know how it will all go together, but it does! I think our students all had a blast too and loved their finished books. Yes, almost everyone finished all 20 pages that day!
