Denim Journal Class at Memory Bound

Fascinated with book making, and inspired by book making books and projects by Donna Downey, I came up with this Denim Journal. I have also made one from leather and one from an old quilt.

I made this one to teach at a class at Memory Bound Scrapbook Store in Ankeny this coming Sunday. If you live in the area, I'd love to help you create one of your own!
These are very fun and easy to make.







Here's the class description:

Make this fun blank journal to fill with photos or words. We will use the Crop-A-Dile Big Bite and a stitching technique to create this fun journal. Bring a piece of denim, or any other fun fabric you want to use, that is no smaller than 7x18 inches in size. The pages (6x6) are a mixture of clear overlays, fun patterned paper, notebook paper and cardstock. We will do some stamping and paper distressing too.

Supplies to bring: Crop-A-Dial Big Bite, if you have one, modge podge or gel medium, large eyed sewing needle, if you have one.

The class is from 12:30 to 4:30 Sunday, January 11. The cost is 24.00$.

HI Fonda! I sent you and email and I'll be calling Diane right now and signing up! I'll add this email to my main email address book and hopefully we'll not have any more issues with emails!

See you Sunday!

Ah, Fonda... you're a genius. Of course, I'm prejudiced just a bit.

Fonda, it's an amazing project! I saw it yesterday at the store. I'm sure your class will be fabulous!

Fonda if I hadn't been so close to my due date (and I did go into labor in the evening on the 11th) I would have TOTALLY signed up for this...the project is gorgeous! Hope it got a good response and you all had fun in class:)
