Class One at CKC Seattle

SEI “Clearly Fabulous” Acrylic Album Class
This was my very first class at the convention. I did not take any classes last year, I only did the Friday night crop so this year I decided to take 3 classes and do both Friday night and Saturday night’s Crop! It was a lot of fun. This class was Friday at 8:30 in the morning! It was a fun class as I have never worked with Acrylic before and it was great to get tips and tricks on how to use it so I can use it in the future! It was also a very easy class and the step by step instructs were easy to follow. I finished the album in class other then putting the ribbon on the rings!

Class Two At CKC Seattle

Boxer Scrapbooks Class
The next class I toke was at 11:10 on Friday and it was called Boxer Palooza. It was nice to have a break in between classes as I went shooping in the vendor fair and then went to my car and droped off my purcases then went to class! When I signed up for this class the description said it would be like walking into a scrapbook factory and getting free products! Well let me tell you, we did get a lot of free products but we also got a lot of tips and tricks on how to use the free product! Here is a list of product that I got from the class! (the best part was I did not have to do anything but take notes and get free stuff!!! Gotta love it!)

I also won a 15 dollar gift certificate in the store and that’s how I bought a second calander and all the other goodies listed abouve from Boxer Scrappbooks!

Class Three at CKC Seattle

The last class I toke on Friday was an SEI poppy class that started at 1:50 and was 2 hours long. The class was cool because you got two 8x8 albums, a Fotofusion Scrapbook Essentials CD with the SEI Poppy collection on it and a 12x12 album in a box. The fun part about the class is we did 20 pages with a bunch of paper, ribbon and emelishements. We did not finish all the pages in class but I did finish them last night and they turned out good! Now I just need to find pictures to put in the album and I will have a complete 12x12 album done in no time at all!!!

Jovan's xmass present

I made Jovan a calander this year for her xmass present. I used a picture of the baby, raven and damien on each month. I started with september since that is Ravens birthday, and then october is Damien's birthday so that is his page, and the baby's birthday is november, after that i just went back and used a picture of raven and so on untill it was done. I made it really simple but think it turned out cute!
