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.
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!
