Hi Again,

Thought I'd share some pics of the project I did with the Glenrock Scrappers. I was really unsure about what to do. As I'm not a scrapper I didn't want to do a scrap page, figure these ladies could teach me more than I them! As I perused various blogs I came across
this post by Dawn Olchefske. I loved the little mini wallet and thought it would make a great project. I quickly bought the instructions & thought about how best to fit it to a workshop. My aim was to demonstrate how easily SU products lend themselves to making scrapbooking embellishments. I focussed on the build-a-brad, jumbo grommets, felt fusion, fleurettes and punches. I also demo-ed the stamp-a-ma-jig as so many people don't know what an indispensable tool it is until they see it in action. I also made the album without the wallet to save on time, I just made a belly-band for mine. The ladies thought a velcro-dot would also work well.

Here is the front of the album, it is about 4" square. I've used papers from the 'Simply Scappin' kit Sweet Nothings plus a sheet of Bella Rose DSP (once again SU products co-ordinating perfectly!) I've dyed a white fleurette with Pink Pirouette re-inker in some water.So easy & works so well.

Here is the album when it is first opened:

Opened fully:

Finally, the back of the right hand side flap. I wanted to show how the jumbo grommets can make cute mini frames.I used the 1.3cm punch to cut out some DSP, topped it with a clear disc from the build-a-brad set & then placed a grommet over the top. One of the ladies just popped a completed build-a-brad through her grommet, just as effective.

The ladies made their's out of either Bella Rose or Urban Garden DSP. They did a fabulous job and we had lots of fun. Even better, I can now justify going to Convention!!! I made a rule that I was not allowed to go to convention unless I'd held at least one workshop. As the ladies were generous enough to not only pay for the class, but also purchase product (the b-a-b, s-a-m-j and grommets proved popular) I can now go. I'm so excited. Am hanging to register when it opens tomorrow. I have been saving for it.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day,
Love Fi xox

Oh wow! Totally gorgeous Fi! By the way, my birthday is coming up... haha! I love your grommet frame! I bought a box of these as I adore hardware, and am a bit flummoxed as what to do with them!! Thanks for the ideas :)
