Scrapbook Club for Kids Artwork

EDIT  ***Please NOTE!!*** All Scrapbooking Content will now be found at scrapbookwonderland.com


In addition to two monthly scrapbook clubs for adults I also host a monthly scrapbook club for kids. Every month we use a Workshop on the Go Kit from Close to My Heart and create beautiful scrapbook pages.  For this class I prepare a project only as a jumping off point, as the participants are very happy creating their own unique pages.  I present design ideas and interesting techniques to the club members to inspire their pages and built their technique skill set.  I love to see the creative ideas the club members share with me too!

The kit we used in March was the Superhero Workshop on the Go Kit.  Here is the project that I made.

The layout for this page is called "Final Act" from the Magic book by Jeanette Lynton.  It features a tag booklet in the feature photo of the first page.

The Superhero Workshop on the Go Kit includes:
1- My Reflections Superhero Paper Packet
1- My Acrylix Superhero Workshop Stamp Set
2- White Daisy Cardstock Sheets
1- Comic Badge Buttons
1- Dimensional Elements Stars
1- Instructional Brochure
This kit is available for the low cost of only $29.95 + Shipping and Handling and Tax.

Scrapbook Club Artwork

EDIT  ***Please NOTE!!*** All Scrapbooking Content will now be found at scrapbookwonderland.com


I host monthly clubs in the Attic for adults. When you come to club you assemble a project using some of the great new products from Close to My Heart.  The club commitment is to purchase $25 of scrapbook supplies each month, for 7 months.  We meet in October, November, January, February, March, April and May.  Each member of the club takes a turn being the hostess.  They bring a light snack, a friend, and they receive the hostess benefits for the month (free scrapbook supplies!!).  

I would like to share the club projects so far this season!

October: featuring the "Typeset" paper

November: featuring the "Believe" paper

January: featuring the "Wonderland" paper

February: featuring the "Stella" paper

March: featuring the "Lucy" paper

We still have two more clubs left in this session.  I will post the projects as we complete them. I will be forming new clubs in the fall!

Let your creativity shine!
Alice.

Welcome to the new home for my scrapbooking and crafting adventures!  I am excited to have a place where I can showcase the fun and exciting projects that are made in my beautiful craft room, Alice's Attic.  I think the best introduction would be a tour of the Attic!

Alice's Attic: This is the main crop floor.  There is seating for 8 + me.  I usually host a maximum of 5 for crop nights, so that everyone has room to spread out!

Sew Wonderful Zone and the Tool Shop: Cricut, Big Shot, Cinch, and Cuttlebug:  All of the tools are ready and waiting.

The Library: I have a variety of idea books and magazines to inspire you.  Also take a peek through my scrapbooks for more inspiration!

Stamps, stamps, stamps!!!

The Comfort Zone: for rest and relaxation!

The Shopping Zone: Browse my personal stash for items from Close to My Heart to take home today!

Inspiration Station: Take a peek through the mini-albums and projects for inspiration.

Attic dwellers: These guys love scrapbooking and they can't wait to hang out with you too!

Snack Attack!  Refreshments are a scrapbooking necessity, right?

The Room of Requirement: Take a break in this pink washroom.

As you can see, once you are up in the Attic there is no reason to leave!  I hope you will join me soon!

Let your creativity shine!
Alice.

Mommy and Me Workshop

In January I hosted my first Mommy and Me Workshop. The Attic became a very busy place with 9 little girls and their mom's (and a grandma too!) getting crafty! We had 3 hours and 3 butterfly-themed projects to complete, a scrapbook page (of course!), a recipe box, and a chandelier.


First up, the scrapbook page.  We used the 'Wings' paper, added dimension to the butterfly with sponge-inked edges and bling-ed it up with some glitter glue.  (Glitter glue was a 'highly-controlled' substance in this class, with VERY specific directions as we all know how much fun it can be!)

Next the girls made a recipe box/photo storage box.  They chose from either the 'Sophia' paper or the 'Sweetheart' paper.  The boxes were embellished with butterfly stickers or punched shaper and sparkles.

Finally we created a butterfly chandelier.  This is an idea I found through Pinterest.  The original website is Heartland Paper.  Please visit their website for directions and to view their original project.  (They added more dimension to the butterflies by using vellum!!)

My next Mommy and Me Workshop is coming up April 15, 2012.  We will create 3 projects: a scrapbook page, a card and a 3-D object. Cost $25. Registration deadline: March 22.  Visit my facebook page Alice's Attic - Scrapbooking or contact me through my website alice.ctmh.com to register.


I hope you have a whimsically wonderful day!
Alice.

Recipe Box/Photo Storage Box Class

EDIT  ***Please NOTE!!*** All Scrapbooking Content will now be found at scrapbookwonderland.com


It has been a busy year so far, so I'm excited to finally be blogging again.  Last night I held a recipe box/photo storage box class.  There were five crafty ladies in attendance and it was a great night.  I'm excited to share a photo of the boxes that were made!

Paper packages from CTMH (left to right): Sonoma, Florentine, Lucy, Stella, Stella

Aren't they adorable!  I love how each of the boxes is so unique.  

The cost for this class was $25.  Included in the class fee: the recipe box, a paper package of your choice, a package of embellishments, and free reign on the classroom and tools to create your ideal project.  If you are interested in the products used they are available here on my website.  To find out about future classes please visit my website and contact me via email.  I can also add you to my monthly newsletter of events held in the Attic.

I hope you have a whimsically wonderful day!
Alice.
