"All About Me" Class for January 12th...

Hopefully you got Denise's email and have signed up for the year long adventure - creating a book all about YOU!! Using Basic Grey (my all time favorite!). Remember if you comment here on my blog, you have more chances at winning prizes during class - so feel free to comment and share your ideas for the layouts!

Everyone knows I'm a LiTtLe AnAl :) Soooo, the first layout titled "My Favorite Things" uses Basic Grey's "Ambrosia" line. The paper is red, orange, and grey. I plan to print my photos in black and white - unless they match the color scheme (analness). I would encourage you to live freely "outside of the box" and choose pictures in any colors that you like.

Picture suggestions:

For the left page - I will do a 5x7 of myself (with the 7" horizontal)- but if you are a picture "whore" (and I use the term nicely) - feel free to do more of yourself. I will struggle to find one, but I hope you have a million!

For the right page, I am going to print 2" by 3" photos of six of my favorite things. The 3" is horizontal. If I can't find six photos, then I will increase the photo to 4" or 6" and take up two spots, but I want to keep the grid shape. (Oh, and by printing 2x3 photos, I mean trimming to that size, because I have NO IDEA how to resize photos). Are you following me? I would need a picture, so maybe I'll draw one - hold please....




Now that I have dazzled and impressed you with my drawing ability - I hope that makes more sense (I am a ViSuAl learner - so I will try to use pics whenever possible).

We will number each box and my journaling will simply and very quickly describe the item in the box. Since I can't stand to take the time to go to the computer and print out my journaling (although still to this day I buy more fonts), I will handwrite my journaling.

So that's it! The foundation for the first "All About Me" class. I am so excited! I have never done an album (much less a page) just about me - and it's about time! I'm pretty cool and so are you - so let's make sure we let everyone know!!!

Hope to see you on January 12th. There are only 10 spots - so be sure to call Scrapbook and Co and sign up. Feel free to ask any questions through the comment section on the blog. I will answer there so that everyone can see. Now - go start making your list of FAVORITES!!!

UPDATE: Group 2 starts on February 5. We have only one spot left! See you then!

Okay all I know is I will have to have Willie or Madilyn take a picture of me before the class because I am never in any pictures. This All About Me book may be harder than what I thought. Do I really have to put pics of myself in it? Can I put pics of what I want to look like? Love the drawing!

I knew the drawing would impress someone! Hints on taking flattering photos of yourself - take from aboe (to minimize chin(s) - only from personal experience). Or choose a picture of the three of you - it doesn't have to be only you - or use a picture of your most favorite thing and don't put yourself on at all - just don't stress! We are going to have fun!

Teri said...

I'm not stressing! I'll just take a shot of something before I come to class.

I think this is a great idea for a class. We never stop to take time for ourselves and are constantly "scrapping" everyone elses lives for us to remember.

I will have to take a few pictures of myself also in order to join the class; but that will be fun because I got a new camera for Christmas. I think Santa thought I was a very good girl.

I will come by the store and sign up soon.

Jean - I don't want to pressure you, but as of noon, we had 6 people signed up, and there are only 10 spots - so you may want to call the store. Hope you can make it!

So bummed.....really wanted to do more of the 3 l/o for $33. Being in grad school part time and working full time, this helped me get at least 3 l/o done a month. Will you offer these classes once a month too? Please please! :)

heatherbell said...

Heather - Once I get this class started - I will try to do more 3 for $33 classes. Chances are slim that I will do too many during tax season - but I'll try!

I am looking forward to the challenge of doing a scrapbook of myself. I rarely take any pictures of myself. Thanks for the hints of taking flattering pics of yourself. I am going to try it out.
Can't wait till class.

My new s/o (significant other) has been taking pics, so I finally have some of ME!
I am doing favorite THINGS, not people, figuring we would do people (family, friends) later in the 12 months.

Have been wanting to do the "All About Me" for some time now, and am glad to have the class motivation!

heatherbell said...

Priscilla - it's great that you are getting into more pictures - we take WAY too few of ourselves!

And Michelle - for suppplies - cutter, scissors, adhesive, glue dots (possibly), black pen, and a rub on tool (AKA popsicle stick). I'll post if I figure out we need anything else.

I was sooo glad to get a spot for the class!! The first time I called it was full, some poor soul had to drop out. I have only done one page about my life and it was the one about the other women in my life for the breast cancer challange. i will bring it with me so that I may use it in this book. I relly enjoyed the card making class that i took with you. Looking forward to monday.
