Make Mine Mini’s Creative Escape Keepsake

I am teaching a mini album class this month at Scrapp’n Savvy (link found on sidebar) and HERE and one of my students asked if I could customize it for her upcoming trip to Creative Escape 2010.  She will be able to take the photos taken at the event and simply add them to her mini album.  Also included in the album will be a pocket folder to hold the photos that don’t fit on her pages.   The mini album is made up of Bazzill Cardstock and My Mind’s Eye Meadow Lark Line.
The colors for this years CE event are Bazzill’s Navajo, Black and White and so it was easy to swap out the color cardstock from Pink to the Bazzill Navajo (Teal).  One of the things that I have always offered to my students is the choice of customizing my project with a color of their choosing.  Since I use Bazzill cardstock in all my projects this gives them an opportunity to choose from many, many colors as well as a varying texture of cardstock.
You can see a silver doilie peeking out, I love those, used one back during Valentines on THIS project if you recall.
The Creative Escape title that is found on the cover is one that was created by the ladies of House of 3, as you may know Bazzill Basics Paper is the sponsor of CE along with Heidi Swapp and many other fabulous companies.  This year the ladies of the House of 3 are offering up to their attendees a free download to create an autograph book.  This logo will NOT be included in my kit, I simply borrowed the circle to show it as an example.  However, it will be easy enough for my student to download the free autograph kit from the House of 3 and add it to her album.   You can see samples of their autograph book on Heidi’s blog.  It was created by the Fabulous Rhonna Farrer, one of the House of 3 owners whom I might add is hosting Spark in September, which I will get to attend.
The Creative Escape event is sure to be an incredible experience and I wish I could be there alongside some of my friends but couldn’t get the hubby to sponsor my trip, LOL.  If you are feeling generous and want to sponsor me drop me a line, LOL, only joking of course.  If you are going I hope you have an awesome time and give my friends of the House of 3 a big Texas hug for me!
If you are local I am teaching this class on Aug 17th and Aug 24th at 6:30pm on both dates.  If you aren’t local but are interested in ordering this kit simply email me at nct621 (at hotmail dot com).  I will have printed step by step instructions with photos so that you can put together this album at your convenience.
As always, THANKS for stopping in and I hope you are having a FABULOUS weekend!
*Should you decide to recreate this album, I would LOVE to see photos and it would be great if you link back to my post should you blog on it.
