I’ve been ogling at those pretty scrapbooking papers and washi tapes for ages and wondering how in the world to put those things together and make a pretty scrapbook. Well, I got a chance to try my hand at putting a mini album together when Rachel of Scrappin’ Love invited me to Scrappin’ Love’s third birthday bash! The 3-hour scrapbooking class was held at ET Artisan Sweets @ the Grandstand and it was followed by a short reception.
There’s an area with desks and chairs and that’s where our scrapbooking class was conducted:
Now for the class, we were there to learn how to put a 6″x6″ travel mini-album together and here’s Rachel with her album prototype:
Now the first thing that caught my eye when I sat down were the washi tapes:
We were guided step-by-step how to put the pieces together, starting with the cover then moving on to the inner pages and how to assemble everything together just using the washi tapes and twine!
What I thought was one of the most fascinating pages was this one – where you can actually get a whole pamphlet in this mini-album! I always have difficulty storing pamphlets from trips in albums and this, I think is a marvelous idea:
Now after the entire session, here’s my cover page… I’ve yet to complete the entire album with photos and details of the trip though I sure hope to do so soon!
And we ended the session with some really delicious treats… boy was I hungry!!
And we took a group photo since we were celebrating Scrappin’ Love’s 3rd birthday – thanks Rachel for the eye-opening session!
