Girls' Crafty Weekend: Lindsey's Projects- FREE

Digi-Scrap Class
Instead of our tradition Basics Class, this year I am going to do a demonstration on Digital Scrapbooking. Here are just a few of the projects I've done. My favorite- of course- is Lucy's birth announcement- minus all of the stats, I took them off. Should be a fun class. We will be making a hybrid project/card too- and its all FREE! :)

Girls Crafty Weekend: Lindsey's Projects Take One

CD Case Calendars.

Be excited.

This is going to be a super-easy class (for you especially) the key to this class will be preparation. I am going to put together digital scrapbooking calendars that will slide into CD cases. I will need you to e-mail me your pictures ahead of time to make this work. At retreat, you'll be cutting the pictures printed sheets, sliding them into the CD case and doing any additional embellishments. I want all of your pictures by November 6th.

Price $7/each calendar

Includes: CD case, printed sheets with your pictures in them, & my time. :) COMPLETE pictures and instructions will be given to those who sign up! Here is January to give you an idea of how cute these are. PS They won't have "Created by Lindsey Blackhurst on the front of your copies. :)

Altered Clipboards, baby!
My second class is going to be making clipboards. I'll supply the clipboards, white paint, ModPodge, paper (for the front and back) and ribbon. You'll be on your own for embellishments. These would make fabulous teacher/office gifts. On mine here I bought those cool die-cut stickers and used them as embellishments. I'll have some little add-ons available AT retreat if you want them.
Price $5/clipboard (you might think you can do this cheaper on your own, but remember I'm supplying it all in one spot, and everything will be SU- which means good quality!!)
If you tell me what color scheme you would like to use, I can have all of your ribbon and paper ready ahead of time. :)
