Monocromatic Star Book

A great friend of mine, Pat, made a star book last January for the Club Med swap at Retreat and I was lucky enough to get it!! She made her's with the theme of San Antonio since that is where we all were. Well, I took her idea and made my own here and will offering it for classes in Sept and Oct. I used one of the packs of Monochromatic Cardstocks on page 119 for the new TAC's Inspiration Book. Mine is Blue Greens but you can select any of the colors listed as long as I know at least 2 weeks in advance to order it for you. I used the set Simply Devine stamp set for mine but you can use any set(s) you would like. The top photo is the book closed .. it is very simple ...
... but when you open it you see lots of pictures and stamped image and you can journal in it also! I used my nature photos in mine, but you can select and BRING YOUR OWN PHOTOS. The photos should be no wider than 2.5" or less is better and no taller than 3". It is easier to put in photo which are vertical or portrait.
You can crop your photos or punch out parts of the image if you want. Please bring to class: Scor-pal, cutter, bone folder, lots of adhesive, your photos, and scissors. Here is a photo of two pages together, one even has a pop out!

You will be able to use the scrapes from cutting the pages to decorate your pages, and the rest to the pack you get to take home to make more. You will be doing all of your own cutting for this class! Here is what the book looks like from the top when it is open and tied together. Cost is $20 and I need RSVP's at least 2 weeks in advance.

Here are the dates I have planned at this time. Let me know if you are interested in attending. Only 5 per class please!!
