Made from Scratch: Accordion Album

If you have a few scraps of chipboard and some sheets of cardstock, you have the makings of an awesome mini album and this class can show you how! Have you ever had the perfect idea for a mini album and wanted to get started on it right away but didn't have a album in your stash that would work? Or maybe you had a project in mind and shopped and shopped and couldn't find the album you needed? The answer to your problem might be right in your stash of scrappy supplies and you didn't even realize it! The answer is Made from Scratch!

Note from Tammy: As a lifelong crafter and office supply hoarder I knew scrapbooking was for me, but I struggled with making pages. I love to look at what I create. I want to see my creations in my home and marvel in my own creativity (c'mon, admit it, you do too!). I didn't want to create art and then tuck it away in a book. I had an "aha" moment one day when I realized that I wasn't a scrapbooker really, I was a crafter who loved scrapbook supplies. What I wanted to do was to "make things". Since that day, I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to make things for several manufacturers like BasicGrey, Pink Paislee, Prima Marketing, Provo Craft, Thermoweb, Glitz Designs and others. I have been blessed to share my love of making things with others through teaching. I presently teach for Bazzill Basics Paper and am an endorsed educator with Prima Marketing, Tattered Angels, Ranger and Graphic 45.

In this class, you will make an accordion album from scratch that is packed with fun elements. The emphasis is on the construction of the album, so that you can take what you learn and use it again and again. The next time you are struck with inspiration and need an album, you won't need to search for one because you will have the knowledge and tools to make one yourself from scratch! Though it takes a little more time and a little more effort than a readymade album, you will love the sense of accomplishment when you see what you have made from just a few basics!

Important information about Self-Paced Projects at Big Picture Classes!
Self-Paced Projects are instant download classes that allow you to participate at BPC anytime! These classes are different from our interactive workshops. There are no starting or ending dates -- you may enroll at any time. This flexibility also means, that there will not be the level of teacher and student interaction that we enjoy in our workshops. You will receive handouts to print and an audio file to listen to, but there are typically no message boards or chats.

Even though these classes offer less interaction, you are not alone! If you need help, email us at admin@bigpictureclasses.com. Enjoy!
