With CHA in town last week our LSS, Creative Cuts, had some great teachers coming in to hold classes. I was able to take a class from Teresa Collins as well as three classes taught by
We made this Christmas book using new Christmas papers from Teresa Collins:
Teresa showed this book with a big black flower in it -- her signature style. I just couldn't do a black flower for Christmas so I used this grungeboard flower I had made last Christmas for one of the Tim Holtz challenges. I think it works a bit better.
The next three projects were taught by Debby Schuh. It's impossible to show all the detail that went into every project she taught. They all were amazing.
We started off with this wall hanging, which includes a mini book hanging from it. We used the
7 Gypsies Ticket Holder and their Botanical paper.
Next we created this mini book from 7 Gypsies Lille Paper. There are so many pockets in this thing you wouldn't believe it!
This travel journal we made also has pockets and fun tags and journaling spaces throughout. I especially liked the way we incoroprated plastic ATC holders as pages for small photos. We used a combination of papers for this project.
Creatively, I was fried after this weekend. If it wasn't for the wonderful hospitality of the women at Creative Cuts supplying us with a never-ending supply of beverages and snacks, I'd have never survived:)
