My First Class

I held my first craft class this month - teaching how to make an Accordion Fold Mini Album. About 1.5 years ago, when I first starting scrapbooking in earnest, I was searching YouTube for some examples of different accordion folded albums when I came across Laura Denison's "Snip and Fold Mini" video (and incidentally, it was this video that introduced me to 'Following the Paper Trail' and Laura's work in general) and fell in love with it. I made up a few of these, and then, as I gained some confidence, added my own touches with a slightly different binding/covering method.  Friends and family who saw them started asking me if I could teach them how to make one and eventually that evolved into a class.

My First Swap - Updates

So in true moron form, I was so excited when I finally received my package of goods from Tmika (Scrap Da World). that I opened everything and forgot to take pictures first.  *sigh*  Okay, so chalk one up to super excitement and pure stupidity for me.  LOL!  Thankfully Tmika video tapped everyone's entries and I've got a link to those videos at the end of this post, after the break.
