As I promised yesterday, here are a few peeks inside my Graphic 45 accordion book that I will be teaching soon. As soon as I have the date I will add it to my calendar.
It is hard to tell in the photos, but the pink file folder is a mini book with vellum pages sewn into the accordion.
The accordion is double sided so that this are places for journaling, photos, and memorabilia on both sides.
One of the things that has been keeping me super busy getting ready for CHA is putting together my medial kits to give to retailers who might be interested in booking classes with me. I wanted to present them with something that would help them get to know me, my style, my available classes, and printable and web materials they could use to promote my classes with and some of the other details involved with bookings. I decided to burn all of that info on a CD and package it in a CD folder that hopefully represents my look and brand. I am really pleased with how it all came together.
I will be handing these out to retailers at CHA while I am doing my make-n-takes at Prima. If you are a retailer or know of a store that you would love to see me visit, please feel free to send me an email, I would love to put one of these into the mail to you or your favorite store!
I shared a couple of quick shots of this project a few days ago but wanted to share more now that I have gotten to photograph it in better light.
I have also set the date for this class at For Keeps Sake for January 9th from 1-4pm. Class cost and materials is still to be determined so stay tuned for those details. If you don't live in St. Louis but would like to make this project yourself, I will be making downloadable instructions available here in my classroom around January 15th.
A day spent being crafty all day long is a pretty good day indeed!
Today I spent most of the day tinkering and playing with this project:
I made it from this product by Creative Imaginations:
And when you turn off the lights it looks like this:
Well, something like that but less blurry!
I have been drawing patterns and writing instructions to it all day. I am planning to teach this project in January at For Keeps Sake and then will offer instructions for download here in my classroom. As soon as I have the date and details for the class I will share them here and add the date to my calendar here, so if you are interested in taking this class, stay tuned!
I am so happy to share with you today that it is official, I am now a Prima Endorsed Artist-Educator! What that means is that I will be traveling and teaching papercraft and scrapbooking classes featuring Prima products! If you have taken a class with me before, you probably already knew that I always used a lot of Prima products in my projects and classes so becoming an official Prima Educator is a great fit for me!
Here is my official bio on the Prima blog: Tammy Tutterow.
If you would like to see me come to your local scrap shop to teach, please send me an email with the store name and address. I will be sending out information on my classes to my store mailing list and would be happy to include your favorite store!
For my St. Louis friends. . . . I will be teaching again very soon at For Keeps Sake so be watching soon for those details!
