Girls Summer Scrapbooking and Papercrafting Camp

Camp will run for 4 days, Tuesday - Friday.  We will have two sessions a day. The first session will be from 10am-12pm.  The second session will be from 2-4pm.  This camp is geared towards girl tweens that are a minimum of 10 years old.   We are limiting each session to only 6 girls.

I have a ton of projects I'd love to do. Whether or not we get to all of them will be based on the children's abilities. I have 4 main projects I would like to be able to complete with them with additional smaller projects for those that finish the main project and have time to spare.  Our main project will be an 8x8 "All about Me" chipboard album that will be created from scratch.  We will be using different scrapbooking techniques in the project. The completed album will have 10 pages.   

Based on the time left our next project will be a 6 panel banner based on family.  We will then create an altered paint can.  Another project will be an Explosion Album that they will create in camp to be decorated at home.

The girls must be able to use scissors and work independently with minimal assistance(no Mommies by their side).  They will be cutting their own papers using paper trimmers, die cut machines and scissors.

Registration is $120.00 and must be paid 1 week prior to the session beginning.  You can register for only one of the following weeks in either the morning or afternoon sessions:

1st Week – July 5-8.  Registration will close June 29
2nd Week – July 12-15.  Registration will close July 6.
3rd Week – July 19-22.  Registration will close July 13
4th Week – July 26 – 29.  Registration will close July 20.

The registration fee is non-refundable.  Registration is now open.  Please call 631-580-1118 to register today.

Please send your child with pictures that cover some of these themes.  Do not give your child the originals, they might be cutting them.

Mini Book for a Victorian Tea Bridal Shower

Hi everyone.  Just wanted to share book I finished for a woman giving her daughter a Victorian Tea Bridal Shower.  This woman collects antique tea sets and is giving away a cup and saucer to each guest as the favor.  She asked me to create a special book for her to give to her daughter to remember the occasion.  There is an invitation page, 7 pages with images of different vintage tea cups. The tea bag tags are for each guest to write a sentiment for the bride-to-be.  I used the Silhouette Machine to create the tags and I used Tim Holtz's Tiny Attacher stapler to attach the string.  It worked great.  The staples are nice and tiny. There are also eight pages for the bride to be to record the gifts she received.

For the actual book I used an 8x8 Cover-All from Bind-it-All.  These are great if you don't want to see the wire binding.  I did use paper to cover the entire book cover.  For the inside I used chipboard that I covered and then bound with the Bind-it-All.  The papers used to create the book are from digital images.

Although it is hard to see the pink flowers, teapot and canister are all dimensional.  I fussy cut all the petals of the flowers and then popped them with pieces of pop dots.  The cream flowers on the cover are the flowers from Petaloo that I just got in the store.  Aren't they just gorgeous! 

Here are some pictures of the finished product. I'd love to know what you think.
