We are all “collectors of memories” and “dreamers of dreams,” aren’t we? In this delightful class Debby will show you step by step how to transform Tim Holtz’s new Configuration Book into a darling “suitcase” where you can keep treasured mementos and record the stories of the special moments that you want to remember.
Your kit will contain a variety of papers to customize the look of your 12” x 9” suitcase. The sample shows a vibrant color choice in the lively “Liberty” fabric style, but there are other prints in your kit to choose from that are more subdued, if that is your preference. Inside your suitcase, the choices are practically limitless! You can customize the arrangement of the boxes inside your case, personalize the trinkets you place in each section, and choose the papers that you will feature in the removable album we’ll make for inside our case. We will even make a second darling little album out of windowed envelopes – it’s so cute! Each will person receive a full 10 yard roll of washi tape to frame the edges of your case as well as other products from the Maggie Holmes collection from American Crafts, the Basic Grey Mint Julep collection, and more from 9 different companies.
Student Supply List: Please bring the following items to class… 12” paper trimmer, pencil, ruler, scoring tool, scissors, strong ½” tape adhesive, regular tape runner adhesive, Crop a Dile, Distress Ink – Vintage Photo, ink blending tool, non-stick craft mat, sanding tool, foam squares, Glossy Accents or other strong liquid adhesive, rub-on tool or popsicle stick, and a favorite charm to hang is one little section of your “suitcase.”

If you could go back in time and give advice to the little girl you once were, what would you tell her? What stories from your life would help her know that things were going to be all right in the end (and if it’s not all right, then it’s not the end – love that line from The Best Marigold Hotel movie!) What advice would you give her? What insights could you share? This nostalgic little journal will be a special place to keep those thoughts and stories.
Using a Tim Holtz Worn Book cover and ring binder with the gorgeous Trousseau Collection from 7gypsies, we’ll make pages and pockets and even our own vintage-looking papers to fill our 4” x 7” journals. A photo of you as a little girl will be featured on the cover of your book and will remind you to appreciate the woman you have become.
Of course, the album can be used for anything you’d like – It would make a lovely wedding album or any pretty pictures you’d like to use. It would also be a perfect gift for someone special!
Student Supply List: Please bring the following items to class… 12” paper trimmer, pencil, ruler, scoring tool, scissors, strong tape adhesive, regular tape runner adhesive, Crop a Dile, Distress Ink – Vintage Photo, ink blending tool, non-stick craft mat, sanding tool, a special small button – about ½” or less - if you have one - to use on the front cover of the album, a picture of yourself as a child for the oval frame opening which is 1 ½” x 2 ½” (other pictures will be available to use), foam squares, Glossy Accents or glue dots, scallop scissors or border punch.
