Anyway, back to the auction. I agreed to design a project and present a class to the winning bidder and 5 guests. It reminded me so much of my days when I taught classes for Judy and also when I worked for Simple Scrapbooks Magazine and traveled to conventions. I was in my element. However, for whatever reason, life I guess, the winner was never able to schedule a time for the class before we moved. So, I packed kits and gave her a tutorial instead. Here's a brief run down of how the project looked in the end.
Back of cover & Page 1: The cover is made from using two pieces of transparency and sandwiching decorative papers inbetween. The heart looks like it is floating but in really isn't. Page 1 lifts to show a place for journaling.
Page 2 & 3: Just a couple of photos I love and then different ways to journal the memories about each one. It might be hard to tell but the red part is actually a card that opens to reveal the photo of the twins on the inside. You can get so much more design space by using lifts and pull-outs. It's fun to see how many ways you can add more to an album. This album was really only 4 pages but with all the additions and lifts, it turned into like 9 design surfaces.
All in all, it was a fun project to make and I do hope the winner of the auction was finally able to get together with her friends and make the book.
