My Bind It All Basics classes have been a HUGE success! WOW!! Thanks so much to everyone who came to the classes thus far-I hope you all left feeling empowered and ready to bind some books!

Earlier this month I taught the class at The Scrappin' Table in Placentia, CA. We also made the BONUS project, a fun little mini book featuring Zutter's Cover-Alls. Each student customized their Cover-All and book in the class. We had themes from all over the calendar — mom, Halloween, girl…a little bit of everything. Here's the sample–mine pales in comparison to what these Bind It All experts were creating in the class!

Some photos from the day:







Thanks Anne for taking pics for me!

BONUS CLASS

Description: It’s been said that the best way to learn something is to actually “do” it. After the “Basics” class, create a mini book using the skills you just learned. Not only will you have the instructor there to help you, you’ll also have a chance to play with Zutter’s newest creation, Cover-Alls! Mix various media for your pages – envelopes, acetate, chipboard, and more! We’ll have an embellishment, border punch, stamp, and paper set up so you can create your own custom design during the class.

Supplies: Liquid Adhesive, Scissors, Paper Trimmer, Bind It All (if you have one), inks (if taking BONUS class).
