italy project in progress

Today I'm working on the finishing touches to the travel mini-album class I'll be teaching on the upcoming Scrapmap Italy trip.

Here's a really big thank you to the following companies who generously donated products for use in my classes. You are appreciated!

Advantus | Tim Holtz Alpha Parts Ransom, Tim Holtz Film Strips, Jenni Bowlin Cough Syrup Ink

Ranger Ink | Ink Essentials Craft Tags

Jenni Bowlin | Labels Stamp

Therm O Web | Red Line Tape, Glue Stick, Tape Runner

Other products I picked out for this project include selections from Ormolu, Amy Tangerine for American Crafts, Maya Road, Hambly, October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket, Studio Calico, and 7gypsies.

Be on the lookout for a new mini-project class featuring the album I've created for this event being released after I return home. It's been fun trying playing with products and creating a new twist on the Scrapbook On The Road albums I've created in the past.

    Another thanks to all of the sponsors. It's a beautiful collection, and I can't wait to try it out during the Italy trip. Hopefully, I can find more of those products at my local scrapbook store.

    Two years ago we did a very similar trip through Tuscany (minus the scrapbooking alas!). It was wonderful. Enjoy the sites the activities and the company.

    Is there a way to get the class kit for those who can't go on the trip with you?

    Oh, what a wonderful trip you will have -- lucky you, and lucky students too. :) I too will watch for this class when you get back. :) Any chance you might sell kits to go with it?!

    I hope you have a great time in Italy. I was signed up, but had to back out. My best friend and fellow traveler hit a major bump in this road called life and was forced to cancel. I didn't have the heart to go without her. I want to see lots of pictures and my prayers will be with you all.

    Ah, one day........until then I'll just have to live vicariously through you! I hope you have a wonderful time. I know you'll take lots of photos and I can't wait to see what you post. Have a great time, you deserve it!! Besides, how often do you REALLY get to go to Italy? (if it's often, don't tell - jk.)
    Oh, by the way. I just have to tell you. I finally ordered several of your stamp sets from 2Ps (BEFORE they went on sale!) and I must say, I'm thoroughly impressed. I LOVE them and will be buying more!! Thanks so much for letting me know they are still the same saze, just smaller packaging.

    That's awesome! I just bought a SMASH book & plan on using it for a cruise at end of November with my 20+ family & friends. Perfect time to do some scrapbooking on the road! =D

    Italy is an amazing place. I visited my daughter in Florence while she was spending her junior year of college there. I loved taking pictures of all the buildings and scenery. The food was equally amazing. Can't wait to hear all about your trip and the resulting project class.
