Big Thanks | Scrapmap Product Sponsors

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!

Close To My Heart | Cocoa Ink

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

BoBunny Press | et cetera Watermark pattern paper

K&Company | Smash Book Mini Folio

Technique Tuesday | Observant Traveler, Remember This

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.

    I caught a glimpse of those kits you were putting together in one of your previous posts and it really caught my attention! Wish I could be part of it, but I can’t wait to see what you do!

    I really think that I should go along on this trip with you Ali. You really, really, really NEED someone to show your students how to use those awesome cocoa ink pads from Close To My Heart. {How’s that for pleading my case?}

    Your “observant traveler” stamp set is in my “favorite/most used stamp sets” basket. I love that one. Maybe because I LOVE to travel. {hint, hint}.

    Seriously, I am anxious to “attend” this class when it is available.

    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 might have a couple extras when I get back – I’ll see what I have when I return home and make some decisions from there.

    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.

      Ali said…

      Oh I’m sorry to read that Tricia – please give her my best.

    Cindy said…

    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.

    Oh Ali, I so wanted to go on that trip it would have been a bit a heaven…My favorite country is Italy and England…Italy is wonderful with the art and countryside …Loved venice so romantic and Florence with the “David” statue and Rome with the Vatican was so moving and impressive after seeing it so long in pictures to actually be at the Vatican was on my bucket list….do you have a schedule for you next travel class? have a safe and blessed
    journey…many hugs and blessings
