Debby Schuh Weekend- Part 1 # big ideas#small book

In less than two short weeks my friend Debby Schuh will be at Paper Crown for a weekend of mini album classes. We have many classes at the store that cater to the paper arts girls but the three classes July 25th and 26th are geared for those of you that LOVE scrapbooking and want to learn new techniques and tricks.

Debby is very well know in the scrapbook industry and teaches her unique style to ladies all over the world. Following her trip to OKC, she will be jumping on a plane headed to South Africa to teach. One of the things I love about Debby's classes is she doesn't work for one manufacturer so her projects are a mix of her favorite lines - which also happen to be mine. I think this makes her projects much more interesting and no so matchy matchy.

We are so lucky to have Debby at the store and I know you will have a wonderful time. Not only will you leave with a finished project but probably enough to have a good start on a second project. Debby is very generous with her kits.

Debby and I with our friend Diane.
Debby and I were roomies this spring at Carolyn Peeler and Teri Brush's La Dolce Vita Retreat in Tuscany. I'm so excited to have a reunion and share our adventure with you. (Debby has done an outstanding job documenting the treat on her blog  . My photos are finally downloaded and I will begin this week sharing them on the blog- I want to get everyone thinking about a Paper Crown group going next spring!)

# bigideas#littlebook
Fri., July 25th
Using the new We R MemoryKeepers 4x4” Instagram album, Debby will guide you in making an encyclopedia of ideas for expanding the room for photos in the small books that are so popular now. The folds and cuts and extensions and add-ins and more will supply a wealth of ideas that can be adapted for any of your paper-crafting projects.

The darling new Styleboard collection by Maggie Holmes from Crate Paper will fill our books with nostalgic charm and be the foundation for the sweet little pages that we’ll make for our favorite photos. The page protectors that come in your album will be perfect for 4x4” or 2x2” Instagram photos or you can crop your photos to fit the pages. We’ll add ribbons and tags and pockets and other little embellishments to make our books the cutest things ever!

Student supply list: Please bring the following items to class… 12” paper trimmer, pencil, ruler, scoring tool, scissors, strong tape adhesive (1/8” and ½”, if possible), regular tape runner adhesive, Crop a Dile (or 1/16” and 1/4” We R MemoryKeepers Power Punches, Distress Ink (I use Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger), ink blending tool, non-stick craft mat, sanding tool, stapler or Tiny Attacher, corner rounder punch, scallop-edge scissors, foam squares. Optional: Tim Holtz two hole punch. 
This book has 15 pages ;however, since there are so many pockets, flaps and fun twists there really are many more areas to journal or add your favorite mini pictures.  
To sign up for this class or any of Debby's classes that weekend, call Paper Crown at 405 848-2389.
This is a great opportunity for those of you in TX, KS or AR to come experience Paper Crown for a weekend and do a little shopping and create some adorable albums.
Debby's other two classes will be featured this week or if you can't wait, our previous post
